What other Villians options do you think will be coming our way?

After the Unleash the Villains event Friday night at DHS, do you think Disney will revisit the idea of a Villains-themed land? Or at least a hard ticket Villains party? I'd even settle for a Villains character themed meal?? Obviously the Villains are very popular. Surely the powers that be at Disney recognize this and see the $$ making potential of these Villains, right? Any thoughts??

Even if the original version of the 1900 Park Faire dinner returned with the Disney Villains.

I agree! I would have loved to been there on the 13th. I would pay for a / an (insert villains idea here). We have two teen DDs this would appeal to for sure!

The original dinner at 1900 was Capt Hook, Queen of Hearts, Jafar... It was still the "British" character breakfast (Mary Poppins, Hundred Acre Wood) as it is now, but the Cinderella cast replaced the Disney Villains at dinner.

Disney needs to learn from this... Villains are a huge market - take the carsland area that isn't going to be developed and create a Villains land!!!

I think a character meal with Villains is a brilliant idea!

I also would really love to just SEE more villains. They are usually the most fun and without them, there wouldn't be much of a story to tell.

More meet and greets with Villains would be so cool!

I would love to see Yzma (Emperors New Groove), Darla (Finding Nemo), King Candy and Cy-Bugs (Wreck it Ralph), Lock, Shock and Barrel (Nightmare Before Christmas) and Syndrome (The Incredibles).

I saw photos of some Villains from the party that I truly hope will have more of a presence in the parks going forward...Oogie Boogie (Nightmare Before Christmas) and Hades (Hercules)!!! How cool would that be?!

YES! I would LOVE to get my pic made with Yzma or Syndrome- very cool idea! I agree- the Villains are a HUGE market for Disney. In addition to things they could do in the parks, just think about the merchandising options. Big $$! Surely if we know this, that Disney has figured it out too??

While I would love a stronger villain presence in any form, you can't really use a single evening special event as a solid argument for it.

I could foresee the rampant success of that night leading to a hard ticket event in DHS off peak season. I think their biggest concern would be would it canabilize MNSSHP/MVMCP. They tried having a third hard ticket event in the slow spring a few years back with the Pirate and Princess parties, but they weren't very successful. I wonder if they might consider this as an alternative for that season.

Had a great time last year at Hollywood Studios getting my picture made with Snow White's evil queen. We had an interesting conversation about children. Obviously she does not like them much! Great experience and she stayed in character the whole time.
