Who is Jafar? The most talked about Disney Villain right now. He is a total psychopath who will not let anyone get in his way from his dreams of total power. He has no soft side, he enjoys watching those beneath him suffer.
Be careful, Jafar is known to roam Disney After Hours, a special event that’s open to a limited number of guests and offers low wait times at more than 20 attractions and experiences after the park closes to day guests, from classics like the Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Space Mountain, to newer favorites like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, plus many more. Although Disney After Hours spans three parks, the villains can be found at the Magic Kingdom. Expect a few of the Magic Kingdom rides to have villainous enhancements.
** Although you may see characters roaming, and performing in shows, there will be no character meet in greets for this event – which to me makes the cost of the ticket a bit pricey.
Event tickets also allow entry as early as 7 p.m., which gives you time to enjoy fireworks before heading off to the attractions. Ice cream novelties, popcorn and select bottled beverages are also included in the cost of admission. Admission to Disney After Hours can be purchased in advance for $125 per adult or child, plus tax—or purchased on the day of the event for $129 per adult or child, plus tax. Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can take advantage of specially priced tickets for just $95 per adult or child, plus tax.
Look for these villains, during the shows, among others:
- Hades from Hercules,
- The Queen From Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,
- Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty
- Dr. Facilier from Princess and the Frog
Compared to Disney’s Not So Scary Halloween, this is more of a party vibe (with no lines for candy and NO character meet and greets). With free ice cream and popcorn, you may not need snacks. If you do wish to purchase, look for these specialties:
- Not so poison apple cupcake (Main Street Bakery)
- De Vil’s Treat (Casey’s Corner)
- Hades Nachos and Hades Temptation (Tortuga Tavern)
- Headless Horseman Brownie (Liberty Square Popcorn Cart)
- Dr. Facilier’s Tarot Card Tart (Sleepy Hollow)
- Dragon’s Breath Float (Storybook Treat)
- Intergalactic Noodles (Cool Ship)
