Unleashing the Villains:
Friday the 13th is regarded as a strange date on the calendar, a date when extra mischief lurks in the air. Who better to celebrate mischief than our Disney Villains? On Friday, Sept.13, after dusk, the Disneyland Resort will fall under the power of some villainous friends who will party until the 13th hour during Limited Time Magic's "Unleash the Villains" event.
The event was first announced in October 2012 in New York City. Since the announcement, our Disney Enterainment team has been cooking up all sorts of amusing trouble for our Guests and their infamous hosts. "Sometimes the most wicked Disney Characters are the most fun when the time comes to party," and, this event is built completely around the villains, giving everyone a great opportunity to have a different kind of fun, according to Disneyland Resort.
Whether our visiting villains are traveling from the underworld, Wonderland or Never Land, they will be bringing their dancing shoes. Guests will be greeted at a transformed train station, covered in cobwebs and spooky lighting. DJs hosting the event will announce our guests of honor at 13 minutes past each hour, leaving them to dance and cavort throughout the party. Town Square, New Orleans Square, Hollywood Land...all will be swallowed pu in spooky fun with a great collection of devious friends set to entertain right up to the 13th hour(1a.m.)
This event is designed to bring a little chill up the spine...one night of malevolent mischief, all part of Limited Time Magic.
1...The fear of Friday the 13th is known as "paraskavedekatriaphobia"
2...Several Hotels and Hospitals skip the 13th floor out of superstition
3...It's not clear when or why Friday the 13th became associated with bad luck. One theory is that 13 suffers from coming after the more pleasing number 12, which gets to number of months, the days of Christmas and even the eggs in a dozen
4...The longest period that can occur without a Friday the 13th is 14 months
5...In some Spanish-speaking countries, instead of Friday, Tuesday the 13th is considered a day of bad luck
6...Author Mark Twain was once the 13th guest at a dinner party. Friends warned him not to go, saying it was bad luck. He went anyway and later reported they only had enough food for 12
