D’Amaro said that this area, that “will be overrun by villains” has always been an idea they were playing around with and has been at the back of their minds. On hearing  the cheers, Chris Beaty chimed in that there were “7000 other people” who would love to see this idea happen.

While Josh D’Amaro clarified that some of these changes, particularly the possible Disney Villains area in Magic Kingdom Park were planned for sometime soon, rather this would be a potentially exciting development that fans should look toward in the upcoming future.

The conversation followed the news of DinoLand U.S.A.’s upcoming revamp in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

D’Amaro also shared a timeline for all the other exciting updates that have been announced, which will keep fans and Disney Park Guests busy until these other possible developments are officially announced.
