Walt Disney World is introducing Club Villain in January, a new after-hours party in Hollywood Studios that will pair New Orleans cuisine and "fiendish" cocktail concoctions with Disney's best bad guys.

Hosted by Dr. Facilier (the Princess and the Frog witch doctor better known as the Shadow Man), there will be visits by popular villains including Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland), the Evil Queen (Snow White) and Cruella de Vil (101 Dalmatians).

The $99 ticket price includes a New Orleans-inspired dinner and drinks, including alcoholic drinks. It's not technically a party for adults only, but there's no discount price for kids for this one and the inclusion of alcohol seems to encourage getting a babysitter.

The ticket price does not include admission to Hollywood Studios.

Club Villain will set up shop in the Sunset Showcase, a new structure near the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. The current schedule calls for just six dates: Jan. 16 and 23, then every Saturday in February, with the party starting at 7:45 p.m.

Reservations can be made up to 90 days in advance at or (407) 939-3463.

  2. 'Battle of the Sexes' is a fine time capsule comedy, and not really about the tennis
