A record number of Disney villains will be unleashed during a special event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 23. This separately ticketed event will include some awesome entertainment and opportunities for up close encounters with some of the most popular Disney villains. Guests attending the event will also find event merchandise and a variety of food & beverage offerings. Here is a sneak preview at what you can expect.
We’ve developed a small assortment of event logo merchandise that includes my all-time favorite villain, Hades (he rules!). Guests should look for both women’s and men’s T-shirts, a limited-release pin and a water bottle. These items will be sold in the Studio Prop Shop located near the Studio Backlot Tour at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
I also learned that the Villainy in the Skies Fireworks Spectacular that night will have some Glow with the Show elements so don’t forget your ear hat.
The food & beverage team has also created some incredibly delicious offerings for the party. I love the Disney villain-themed hot dogs, and the Maleficent cupcake sounds amazing – dark chocolate cake filled with a decadent blackberry filling topped with smooth blackberry buttercream (well, well!).
At Club Evil in The Hollywood Brown Derby, the Disney chefs will offer an assortment of small plate menu items. These “Villanishious” items include things like “Cruellas Devious Eyes” – fresh mozzarella with ugly ripe tomato spheres, balsamic gelée and basil oil powder – or “The Queen of Hearts famous ‘Off with their heads’”!, which is deviled eggs, pig crackling and a garlic chili gelée and lobster custard with Tobiko caviar and citrus oil.
Guest should also look for specialty cocktails at Club Evil and at select bar locations throughout the party. There will also be non-alcoholic option called “Pain and Panic Punch,” which is apple juice, Monin pomegranate, Monin vanilla topped with soda water.
After reading the entire menu, I’m ready to party right now!
If you are going, I invite you to join the conversation online with the hashtag #VillainsUnleashed. I can’t wait to see photos of the more than 50 Disney villains that night!
