    We would like to plan a visit to WDW in August. My daughter is an avid pin trader. When will Disney announce the dates and open sales to purchase tickets for the official Villains Pin Trading Event? Any tips for the event if we manage to get tickets?

    My Dearest Rebekah,

    It is most satisfying to welcome you to planDisney as you and your young villain in training prepare to embark on a wonderfully treacherous adventure. An August visit to Walt Disney World Resort sounds like a delightfully diabolical idea and I’m happy to share my insights and discoveries as you make your vacation plans.

    While the exact date for this year’s Disney After Dark 2024 Pin Event remains shrouded in mystery, last year’s event fell on August 26th with check-in the day before. Tickets were released about 3 fortnights prior on June 13, and from what I’ve read, vanished quicker than a flick of Maleficent's cursed staff.

    I consulted my Magic Mirror but unfortunately, details for this year’s ticket sales did not reveal themselves. I understand that these are a prize as coveted as any cursed treasure, so I’m casting a spell and hoping that your quest for tickets will be successful. I urge you to consult the Merchandise Events page often in the coming weeks for updates, lest you miss your chance to secure your place among the fortunate—or perhaps the doomed. 

    But do not fret, dear Rebekah, for other sinister delights are awaiting your presence. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off on August 9, 2024, and promises plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the mischievous and macabre festivities that only Disney can conjure. Guests shall bear witness to the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show, engage in rare character greetings, and lay claim to event-exclusive merchandise during this specially ticketed affair. Perhaps your young collector shall uncover a few pins among the treasures untold. She can also enjoy Cast-to-Guest Pin Trading around the parks as this guest favorite returned earlier this year on April 7th. Just remember to heed the Pin Trading Guidelines, lest the consequences be dire.

    Stay alert, Rebekah, and prepare yourself for the thrilling, chilling experiences that lie ahead. After all, in the realm of Disney Villains, the unexpected is always to be expected. Should you have further inquiries, do not hesitate to return to planDisney. Much like any villain's loyal sidekick, we remain ready to serve your every whim.

    Yours most ominously,
