Disney Villains Friday the 13th Party at Hollywood Studios

Villains of the many Disney classics were all out in their entire glory! Friday the 13th was upon us and the night was invaded with the mischievous characters we’ve all come to have a love-hate relationship with. The sinister atmosphere at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was electric. Maybe it was due to the menacing villainous presence, or the huge crowd drawn in for the rare event. Either way it goes, it was entertaining.
