Magic Kingdom 24-Hour Disney Side Party To Bring Out Rare Characters & One-Time-Only Treats

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.


Disney has announced more details for Friday’s Disney Side Party at the Magic Kingdom, taking place from Friday May 23rd at 6AM until Saturday May 24th at 6AM. A cast of Disney Villains will have a special place in the Magic Kingdom 24-hour celebration, including Maleficent, Cruella De Vil and such rarely spotted miscreants as the Big Bad Wolf, Stromboli from “Pinocchio,” and Bowler Hat Guy from “Meet the Robinsons.”  They will appear in locations throughout the park and also join in the “It’s Good to Be Bad” cavalcade preceding Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade.

Guests at the Magic Kingdom will enjoy nighttime dancing around Cinderella Castle and in Frontierland. The “#IncrediblesSuperDanceParty,” a nightly feature throughout the summer, will be followed during the All-Nighter by special screenings of “The Incredibles” at the Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland.

A number of specialty drinks and treats will be offered during the 24 hours, and after the party ends, all these goodies go away except for two: the Olaf souvenir beverage and the Mickey’s Kitchen Sink Sundae. So plan your 24 hours of fun accordingly!



The cupcake craze is in high gear, plus there are plenty of places to order breakfast.

  • I love special-event Disney food! I can’t wait to try the poisoned apple waffle and the sundae. Will these special places be opened the whole 24 hours or only with partial hours? Because of work my husband and I won’t be getting there until around 8.
