Disney Increases "After Hours" Price And Adds Villain Theme
Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom has a new villain theme starting from June.
The Disney 'After Hours' ticketed event opens up the parks 3 hours after it closes for the cost of $125 each (when booking in advance) one night a week.
Disney have today announced that June, July and August's 'After Hours' will offer a Disney Villains twist. This puts the price of the event up to $139 each.
Disney fans have praised the event overall - as we have - saying its even worth the high price tag. However, whenever a Disney offering gets in this situation, Disney tend to push it a little too far (look at the amount of tickets sold and how crowded the Halloween parties are nowadays).
Disney have always advertised the 'After Hours' event as 'little-to-no wait', the Disney Parks Blog specifically says "low wait". I'm hoping this is just a choice word of the writer, and not a subtle indication that they're increasing the amount of tickets they sell on these nights, along with this price increase.
Here’s a taste of what new elements to expect on the After Hours nights:
A Brand-New Disney Villains Stage Show – Hades and Meg from “Hercules” will set the castle stage ablaze in this all-new stage show, Villains Unite the Night, which will also feature appearances by Jafar, The Queen, Dr. Facilier and Maleficent.
Spot Maleficent the Dragon – Maleficent the Dragon, with her Steampunk style and signature wicked grin, will be let loose for the first time at night – breathing fire as she creeps through the park as a one-of-a-kind experience for party guests.
Villanous Enhancements: Discover surprising, villain-inspired additions at Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain.
Wickedly Good Food & Beverage -A variety of special food & beverage offerings will also be available for purchase, including tasty desserts, drinks and dishes inspired by The Queen, Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, Hades, Dr. Facilier and even Emperor Zurg.
Event Merchandise – Event attendees can also purchase new logo merchandise, as well as items from a curated collection of the best Disney Villains merchandise available.
One Notorious Item to Note: Ever driven to stand out in their unpredictable and audacious fashion, while the Villains will be entertaining guests in the new stage show, they will not be participating in character greetings during the event.
