As Halloween approaches, here are some of the Disney Villans you can see in the Walt Disney World Parks. Headless Horseman View attachment 13308 Nothing says Halloween quite like â€œThe Legend of Sleepy Hollow,â€ and no villain is more ominous than the Headless Horseman, who makes special appearances during Mickeyâ€™s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park. He gives me chills every time I see him galloping down the street with his glowing jack-o-lantern. Maleficent View attachment 13312 During Fantasmic! at Disneyâ€™s Hollywood Studios, Mickeyâ€™s dream turns into a bit of a nightmare when the Disney Villains take over, and none is more foreboding than Maleficent from â€œSleeping Beauty.â€ When she transforms herself into a dragon and sets the river on fire, itâ€™s one of the most awesome moments in the entire nighttime spectacular. Captain Hook View attachment 13305 Hook is as suave and sophisticated as he is scheming and maniacal. Heâ€™s one of many things which have always made â€œPeter Panâ€ my favorite Disney animated film. The Captain is especially delightful during his appearance in Dream-Along with Mickey at Magic Kingdom Park, as he and Mr. Smee face off against their old nemesis. Ursula View attachment 13313 Before New Fantasyland, weâ€™ve been able to go â€œUnder the Seaâ€ with Voyage of the Little Mermaid at Disneyâ€™s Hollywood Studios, where Ursula has loomed large for the past two decades. As she floats out from the shadows, the sea witch captures the attention of Ariel â€“ and us â€“ with her wriggling tentacles and glowing eyes. Jafar View attachment 13309 The Sultanâ€™s evil vizier from â€œAladdinâ€ slinks down the street during the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade at Magic Kingdom Park. Luckily, the Genie is always close by, ensuring Jafar doesnâ€™t get out of line. The Wicked Queen View attachment 13314 In Fantasmic!, the wicked Queen has more to be jealous of than just Snow White. Belle and Ariel also inhabit Mickeyâ€™s imagination, and sheâ€™s not having it! The Queen casts a magic spell in the black of night, calling forth the forces of evil from her Magic Mirror and transforming herself into the Hag in the process. Governor Ratcliffe View attachment 13307 Another infamous scoundrel appearing during Fantasmic! is the self-serving Governor Ratcliffe from â€œPocahontas,â€ interested in little more than forcing others to dig, dig, dig for his own gold and glory. Lady Tremaine View attachment 13310 Cinderellaâ€™s stepmother may not be as flamboyant as Ursula or Captain Hook, but sheâ€™s just as evil. Lady Tremaineâ€™s piercing stare in the shadow of Cinderella Castle is tempered only by the ridiculous antics of her two awkward daughters, Anastasia and Drizella. Lotso View attachment 13311 Lots-oâ€™-Hugginâ€™ Bear ruled Sunnyside Daycare with an iron fist in â€œToy Story 3.â€ Luckily, he seems to be â€œreformedâ€ after spending time at Disneyâ€™s Hollywood Studios, where you can catch him in the Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun! Parade. Gaston View attachment 13306 This man among men may not seem to be a traditional villain, but he is definitely the antagonist in the â€œtale as old as time.â€ Gaston takes part in Beauty and the Beast â€“ Live on Stage at Disneyâ€™s Hollywood Studios, and beginning this fall, youâ€™ll actually have a chance to meet him when he begins making regular appearances outside Gastonâ€™s Tavern in New Fantasyland.
