Disney have thought up yet another way to part you from your money while you visit Walt Disney World. This time out, it's Disney's Hollywood Studios (usually considered the runt of the park litter) that will be getting the attention. Disney have announced a new ticketed party called Villains Unleashed for one day only (August 23rd). The party will feature 50 Disney villains in one form or another plus some special events like Hades Hangout & Dance Party, Oogie Boogie's Variety Show, A Star Wars villain zone, a fireworks show and an extra pre-show to Fantasmic. Of course there will also be special food (I'm betting on at least a couple of cupcakes), beverages and merchandise to buy. Because… it's Disney and they like your money almost as much as you do. Disney actually did a similar event last year, but it wasn't what they call a "hard ticketed" event. What that means is that you have to buy a ticket specifically for this event and it will give you access to Hollywood Studios for the evening only (usually that means starting around 4pm). If you wanted to get there earlier you'd have to buy a regular ticket as well. Since the event last year was insanely popular and caused some traffic control issues, the hard ticketed approach makes sense as well as money. If I was a Florida resident I'd probably want to check this one out. At $67 plus tax it's not outrageously expensive because you can ride the rides while you're in the park, plus you don't get to see many of the villains in the parks.
