REVIEW: Every Spooky Treat at Disney Villains After Hours in the Magic Kingdom

Last night was the very first night of the brand-new, limited-time Disney Villains After Hours event at the Magic Kingdom and we were there to cover all of the food, merch, and entertainment!

A variety of special food and beverage offerings are available for purchase at the event, including tasty desserts, drinks, and dishes inspired by The Queen, Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, Hades, Dr. Facilier and even Emperor Zurg.

If you’re at the party and want to know the best treats, drinks, and snacks to try, look no further than our full review below, arranged by location.

Cool Ship

Intergalactic Noodles – $5.99

chilled noodle salad with snap peas, red onion, and sweet garlic chili sauce

The noodles were similar to our beloved Shiriki Noodles served at Skipper Canteen, served cold. The themeing was cool and appropriate with the purple noodles, and while the dish was very spicy, it was also quite flavorful and delicious.

Yzma’s Llama Potion – $6.99

dry ice-infused vessel filled with Strawberry Fanta

The drink was super sweet and fruit punch flavored, but it tasted like you were drinking a popsicle, essentially.  The bubbling effect was neat, but died down after about a minute.

Casey’s Corner

De Vil’s Treat – Sold Out!

brownie topped with black and white icing

This treat was sold out by the time we got to Casey’s near the end of the party, so if you’re looking to try it out, make sure you stop by early on.

Liberty Square Popcorn Cart

Headless Horseman Browkie – $5.75

half-chocolate chip cookie, half-brownie topped with a chocolate piece featuring the Headless Horseman

Let’s call a spade a spade, here. It’s a brownie with a cookie in it. Both layers are soft, with a distinct difference in taste when you hit each layer. It’s definitely shareable due to how large it is, and best of all, it comes in a box, so you can seal it back up and carry it around. We’ve had far worse from a cart, but why would you buy this when there’s free ice cream and popcorn already included with your ticket?

Sleepy Hollow

Dr. Facilier’s Tarot Card Tart – $6.99

The Tarot Card Tart features a chocolate crust filled with dark chocolate ganache and topped with peanut butter cream and a white chocolate Tarot card.

It’s not bad, but it’s definitely peanut butter forward, despite not being advertised as such.

A Drink from The Other Side – $4.99

“a non-alcoholic Hurricane-like drink themed after one of the most popular drinks in New Orleans”

This hurricane is absolutely a non-alcoholic hurricane. It’s basically a fruit juice mix, one that reminds us of the POG juice offered at Kona and Boma during breakfast hours.

Main Street Bakery

Not So Poison Apple Cupcake – $6.99

a spiced “apple” cupcake with pecan crunch and buttercream

We last reviewed this item back in Fall 2018: This is one impressive apple. It’s a red spiced jumbo apple cupcake with pecan crunch and buttercream. If the pictures don’t get the point across: this thing is HUGE. Big enough for three to share, and there’s enough icing on top to make anyone happy. The cake itself is moist and has a great layer of pecan crunch between the cake and icing. Plus, it takes a great picture!

Storybook Treats

Maleficent Cone – $5.99

lime soft-serve topped with chocolate horns and purple sprinkles served in a black waffle cone

We last reviewed this item back in Fall 2018: If you remember the Peter Pan Float that’s also served at Storybook Treats, you’ll be familiar with the green ice cream. It’s a key lime flavor (advertised only as lime here) and will be enjoyed by those who like such flavors. This one is on the sweeter side thanks to the colorful topping. If you don’t like lime, then you might be better off with a different treat from the Magic Kingdom. Adding the ice cream in a black waffle cone with two chocolate horns make this not only a photogenic treat, but a tasty one too.

Dragon’s Breath Float – $6.49

lemon soft-serve and sprite topped with a green cherry and cherry-flavored syrup

The lemon soft serve (same as the one used in the Tangled cone) was delicious, and mixing it with Sprite is a great idea, because it creates a lemon-lime effect.

The green cherries were kind of gross, as they were very candied. It was a cute and refreshing treat that’s supposed to mimic a dragon.

Tortuga Tavern

Hades Nachos – $5.49

black bean nacho chips with “fiery” buffalo chicken and nacho cheese

We last reviewed this item back in Fall 2018: Those are black bean tortilla chips. If you didn’t know better, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between them and regular tortilla chips, besides the color, of course. There’s a sizable helping of fiery buffalo chicken served on top of the chips and then the entire entree is smothered in a nacho cheese. For the price, this is a gigantic dish that’s easily shareable between two people. Yes, a trip to the fixin’s bar is included with the purchase. There’s ample spice to the buffalo chicken, giving a great kick with each bite. The nacho cheese on top seems like a lot at first, but it really helps bring around the spice of the chicken with the crispness of the chips. It’s a solid, unique, spooky option.

Hades Temptation – $5.49

purple frozen mocktail “Cosmo” with lemonade, violet monin syrup, and a gummy worm

This tastes just like the violet lemonade slush from Epcot.  It’s as good as it is there, with a gummy worm thrown in for good measure.
