Disney has added another hard ticket even this summer, in addition to the new Harambe Nights at Animal Kingdom. Villains Unleashed is the newest event taking place at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This even will be one night only, August 23rd.
The villains have recently been getting a lot of play in the parks and have amassed huge lines for meet and greets. Disney's Hollywood Studios hosted the villains last year on Friday the 13th to lots of positive feedback. That show included a fireworks display and meet and greet.
An ongoing rumor is that Disney plans to open a fifth gate in Walt Disney World. What that could be has been thought to be a villain themed park or more recently a Star Wars themed park. Could Disney be testing the waters to see how popular a villain park would be? Maybe but I think the data is pretty clear people love the villains. Star Wars villains are confirmed for the event and Marvel villains are rumored but unlikely given the Universal deal.
The ticketed event will cost $67 for adults and $62 ages 3-9. A little pricey I think for some meet and greets and fireworks but it could be a hit.
