UPDATE: Congratulations to all our Villains Victory Party Trivia Contest winners! The complete list of winners can be seen here. Here are the correct answers to the contest questions:

  • Which Disney animator created both Maleficent and Cruella De Vil?
    A: Marc Davis
  • Who was in the lead in the “Vote for Villains” race on October 8?
    A: Maleficent
  • On which Disney Cruise Line ship can you see the show, “Villains Tonight!”?
    A: Disney Magic
Jafar Maleficent Ursula
Evil Queen Captain Hook Cruella De Vil

If you’re an avid reader of the Disney Parks Blog, then you’re probably familiar with the Disney Villains who have been battling for the title of “baddest of them all.” Jafar, Maleficent, Ursula, the Evil Queen, Captain Hook and Cruella De Vil have been duking it out for four weeks now, and the madness will end October 28, 2010, when the baddest Disney Villain will be announced at the Villains Victory Party.

If that sounds like fun to you, then I have good news. You could win a spot at the Villains Victory Party!

If you are one of the first 75 people to answer the three trivia questions below correctly, you and a guest may be able to attend the “after hours” Villains Victory Party at Disneyland park on October 28. Access to this very special event cannot be purchased and can only be won through the Disney Parks Blog or participating radio stations in the Los Angeles area.

Winners will have several attractions all to themselves from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on October 28, including Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion Holiday, Indiana Jones Adventure©Disney/Lucasfilm Ltd and Haunted Voyages aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat. The party will also include eerie music, Club Skellington, tarot card readers, palm readers and special photo locations with characters. Haunted Mansion Holiday is inspired by Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Here are the questions:

  • Which Disney animator created both Maleficent and Cruella De Vil?
  • Who was in the lead in the “Vote for Villains” race on October 8?
  • On which Disney Cruise Line ship can you see the show, “Villains Tonight!”?

To enter, e-mail your answers along with your full name to contests@disney.go.com. Once the contest is over, we’ll send notifications to the winners via e-mail. If you win, you must provide verification of your age and residency and be able to attend the Villains Victory Party on October 28. Check-in on October 28 will begin at 3 p.m. PT, and you are welcome to enjoy both parks after 3 p.m. and before the party starts.

Contest open to US residents 18 and over. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law. Ends 10/15/10.


  • Hi Heather,

    THANK YOU SOo0o0o0o0O much for my tickets! I’m so excited. However, I wanted to see if you could change the spelling of my name- where I work there are two ppl w/ the same name, so my work email says Brandie instead of w/ a ‘Y’. Will the spelling prevent me from getting in if my ID and email don’t match?!

    • The spelling of your name won’t be a problem.

  • Yahoo, I won a spot! Thanks you so much Disney and Heather for providing this opportunity – I am a HUGE villain fan.

  • For those who won, I was reading in the rules we have to reply to the potential winner email with our full name and address. Is this correct???

  • If we have won, and have received the email, do we have to do anything to accept?

  • Woohooo!!! Thanks sooo much, I won!!! And I never win anything!!! I am so excited to be going!!!!!!

  • I WON!!! YES YES YES!!
    Glad someone asked about the costumes, I was wondering.

    My wife is a huge Maleficent fan… she is going to spaz out!

    Thank you so much for giving us Disney magic even though we aren’t even at the park!

  • Omg! I got my confirmation email. Thanks so much for this opportunity. Just wondering can we wear Halloween costumes to this event?

  • Omg! I got my confirmation email. Thanks so much for this opportunity. Just wondering, are we allowed to wear Halloween costumes to this event?

    • Good idea, but Halloween costumes won’t be allowed at this event. Costumes can be worn at Mickey’s Halloween Party on Tuesday and Friday evenings in October.

  • My confirmation email says “potential winner.” Am I a standby?
    Also, the rules said I had to reply to the email within 12 hours, but the email doesn’t have a reply link or address.

  • One more chance…please!

    • Check the Disney Parks Blog for future events.

  • Just got my confirmation e-mail! So excited to be going to this Villainous event! Sounds amazing! Thank you so much, Heather!

    • Congrats!

  • Yayyyy! I won, I never win anything..this is amazing!! Congrats to everyone else!!!!!!!!!!

  • This may be a dumb question but will my 7 year old daughter be able to be my +1 or do both people have to be over 18?

    • Each “win” is only for 2 people: you and one guest. You may choose for your 7 year-old to be your guest, but then you couldn’t bring another adult.

  • Oops, I mean Congrats to everyone else that won!

  • Ooops, didn’t realize the tix were non-transferable. Trying to win for a friend. Guess they won’t be going… Good luck to everyone else!

  • Danielle: yes, I believe she said she will post the answers on this blog for all to see.

  • #2 was def Malificent…. I checked the blog… and it was quite confusing on the wording…. but it was Mal… :) hope that calms your nerves…. :)

  • Heather,

    Will you be posting the answers to the questions as well…. Even if we didn’t win… it would be fun to see if we answered correctly.


    • The answers are now up on the top of this post.

  • thanks for all these opportunities for these awesome events, heather!

    • Thanks, Dinah! Glad you like these events.

  • Heather,

    Can’t you give us one more chance? Please? I really want to go to the big party!

  • I can’t wait any longer! Is anyone absolutely sure about question #2? If so, please post! Thank you. :)

  • The last time I saw who was in the lead(which was a week ago) it was Malificent…So, thats what I put. I knew the other two answers off the top of my head…Which I think means I am a certifiable Disney geek. As if the D23 card in my wallet wasn’t certification enough.

  • I missed my chance for this. But there’s always next time.

    It sounds cool, and I’m sure that the people who won will have fun.

  • D’oh! Stupid biology class made me miss my chance to enter. Contest wasn’t open very long. :-(

  • Since the “To enter…” line is crossed off, does that mean no more entries are accepted?

    • You guys are fast and smart! We received 75 correct answers very quickly. We’ll be posting the answers and the list of winners very soon.

  • I think I may have got #2 wrong. I remembered reading a blog about it but not sure if I am thinking of the right blog. If it’s meant to be it’s meant to be. I’m sure it’s hard to get around disneyland when you have a little one who needs a wheelchair. It will probably be too packed. We will go one of these days, maybe Christmas break :)

  • Would a 2 month old baby be able to attend? would they be required to have their own ticket? I don’t see what the guest requirements are…

  • I wasn’t too sure on #2 either :( This seems fun, but crowded. Don’t know if my little boy could be in that crowd with a wheelchair.

  • I don’t think I got my answers in on time. Now I’m sad.

  • I was good on 1 and 3, not 100% on who was in the lead. And I think I was too late : /

  • When will you notify the winners? I hope I made it in, you throw the best parties Heather.

  • I’m pretty sure of my answers… Anyone else have Marc Davis as the creator?

  • I hope I was quick enough. Heather, will you be posting the answers since the contest is over already.. so we can see if we were right?

  • Very sad that I won’t be able to participate though I know the answers. I miss the days of only being an AP but I would not give up what I have now for anything. Good luck to all of you and congrats to those who win.

  • Hey Heather.. When the winners expect to be emailed?

    • The winners will get an email by the end of the day today.

  • Charlene.. You get 2 tickets so you and your sister could go.

  • wow that was fast.. they already selected the 75 people.. wonder who got it? Congratulations whoever you all are!

  • My full name is in my signature in the email..i hope its not as technical as having to put it in the actual body. But answers are in!

  • they already picked the winners! that was fast! good luck!

  • Question — if you win, could you give your ticket to someone else? (I saw the Contest Rules, and it says you can’t sell it, which I’m not intending to do.)

    In particular, if I were to win, I’d like to give the ticket to my younger sister. She’s always wanted to go to a Halloween event at Disneyland.

    • The tickets are non-transferable. You must show ID when you check-in, and the name you submitted in your entry must match your ID. Each “win” is for two guests, so you can bring your younger sister with you as your guest.

  • OMG! I hope I got them right!

  • Very cool!! I entered!

  • emailed mine… the only thing I wasn’t positive on was who was in the lead… but the others I got :)

  • I submitted my answers and want to win! :) But who does not want to win. 😉

  • I emailed mine too like 5 mins ago! OOOH I hope I won that would be so0o0o amazing

  • why did you put the answers!

  • I don’t think you were supposed to post your answers in the comments Kelly….

    but I did email mine :)

  • P.S. Please don’t spoil it for others by posting guesses or answers in the comments.

    I think Kelly missed this line.

  • All 3 answers are in..hoping I win. This would be cool.

  • I vote for Cruella De Vil? Mean but funny!
