Description

In Mousesteps Weekly #114, we talk about: The Villains Unleashed special event at Disney's Hollywood Studios (full coverage and our thoughts on how to improve the event). It began with the "Hades Hangout" introduction of 50 villains, and was hosted by Hades and Megara. The biggest applause was for Oogie Boogie! Oogie Boogie's Freaky Funhouse Show was hosted by Oogie Boogie and featured sideshow acts including sword swallowing, bow shooting and fire breathing. This was a controversial show and included an announcement stating it was possibly “too intense for young children”. Following the Oogie Boogie show, we met Star-Lord and Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy in their first-ever theme park character appearance at the "Guardians of the Galaxy" Awesome Mix Tape Dance Party. Other characters greeting guests (all with long lines) included The Witch from Snow White, Jafar, Judge Frollo, and the Evil Queen. The one character we would have liked to have met was Constantine, who commanded 3+ hour waits at this 5 hour event. Villainy in the Sky was an incredible fireworks show! For all the disappointment of the evening due to overselling tickets, it was a solid finale. Next, we talk about the Villains Sinister Soiree, which is a $99 special upcharge for guests attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It allows guests to enjoy special parade viewing, Happy Hallowishes viewing, and a 45 minute dessert party with villains. We head to the Magic Kingdom to check out the Halloween decorations! They were not yet fully up, but the pumpkins and garland decorated Town Square, the Hub and Main Street. Window displays include Mickey, Minnie and Daisy in Halloween outfits. Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! will become Move It! Shake It! Dance and Play It! One of the floats is already finished, and in the current version of the procession. Expect the updated Street Party to debut in early October 2014. Recorded 08/27/14 Featuring Commentary from Denise Preskitt and Jeff Lange.
