Journey into Imagination with Figment, Test Track, Soarin’, and Living with the Land were open for the event. In World Showcase, partygoers could ride Frozen Ever After, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros, and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
Spaceship Earth was supposed to be open but was closed due to technical difficulties.
World Showcase was closed past the Norway and France Pavilions.
A DJ spun some tunes in different locations throughout the night from 10:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m.
Everything was villain-themed. The DJ wore a sparkling outfit inspired by Maleficent, complete with horns.
Musicians took the stage in Canada at 10:30 p.m., 11:30 p.m., and 12:30 a.m.
They had some villainous zombie makeup on.
The “Harmonious” barges lit up blue for the event.
The “Moonlight Magic” logo was displayed on the screens.
Delectable Delight Vouchers and Snacks
Guests can use one of their snack certificates. One allows you to get popcorn in a complimentary Disney Vacation Club souvenir bucket, but you could use that certificate for another snack instead.
You can get regular popcorn near the Imagination! Pavilion or maple popcorn near the Canada Pavilion.

We opted for maple popcorn.
The souvenir bucket features the shield logo reading “Membership Magic” and an all-over pattern of blue Disney Vacation Club symbols.
The lines for popcorn quickly got long.
The other snack certificates can be redeemed for ice cream and small snacks at Disney-operated booths of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.
Snack lines also got long.
In addition to snacks, Sunshine Seasons stayed open until 11 p.m. for guests wanting to purchase a more substantial meal.
The only two Disney Vacation Club-exclusive merchandise available during the event were a blue button-up and a yellow Spirit Jersey.
We’ve seen both of these items at Walt Disney World before, and they are available on shopDisney. Check out the button-up.
Transportation back to Disney Resort hotels was available late into the evening.
Bus service, including service to Disney’s Art of Animation and Disney’s Pop Century Resort, continues until 2:00 a.m.
Skyliner Service to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort continues until 2:00 a.m. as well.
Friendship Boat Service continues until 1:30 a.m.
It was great to have this event back, and we loved seeing some rare characters, but it was far from what it once was. There was previously a special fireworks show and decent food options.
As per Disney Vacation Club tradition, Disney remixes and pop music were playing loudly throughout the park. However, there was nobody dancing at the DJ parties because everyone was in line for the popcorn bucket. And it was impossible to get a drink using one of your snack certificates, because you had to stand in the same long line.
The merchandise selection was disappointing, especially considering the new logo would look beautiful on different items.
We will say this is a great event if you love meeting characters.
Moonlight Magic returns to EPCOT on March 31. It will be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 24, June 16, and July 14. Then it will be at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on July 26 and August 31. No more dates have been announced yet.
