The Disney After Hours experience, even though it got off to a slow start, has been super popular in recent months, especially after Disney added a "villains" twist earlier this year. And now it has been confirmed that the plussed up version upcharge event will be returning for more than double the dates in 2020, but with one pretty big price change

Disney Villains After Hours will be returning on select nights in 2020 from February 7 through to July 10, the 2020 for an increased number of dates, and will include the following Villains-inspired enhancements:

  • Hades and Meg from “Hercules” will set the castle stage ablaze in an all-new stage show, Villains Unite the Night, which will also feature appearances by other notable baddies including Jafar, The Queen, Dr. Facilier and Maleficent.
  • Maleficent the Dragon (as seen in the Festival of Fantasy parade) 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 After Hours guests.
  • Plussed versions of Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain will have villain-inspired enhancements and overlays
  • A variety of special food & beverage offerings will also be available for purchase, including desserts, drinks and dishes inspired by The Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, Hades, Dr. Facilier and even Emperor Zurg.
  • Special merchandise themed to villains will also be available for purchase.

This returning Disney Villains inspired event will be available beginning in February, and will be hosted on 24 seperate dates, which is 14 more than were held in 2019. If you're already checking your calendar, here are the available date for Disney Villains After Hours in 2020:

  • February 7, 14, 21, & 28 2020
  • March 6, 11, 18, & 27, 2020

  • July 6 & 10, 2019
However, even though guests will have more opportunities than ever to experience Disney Villains After Hours in 2020, it looks like guests will have to pay more as well... 

Ticket prices go up for all 2020 events


As you might expect given the popularity of the 2019 event, Disney is going to be charging guests extra for this event in 2020, with advance purchase price of $145 (up from $139), and same day price of $155 (up from $144). Pricing for Passholders and DVC Members is $115. Tickets for all dates in 2020 are on sale today.
