Weekend Trip Report – Day 2 (Villains Unleashed)

After spending a refreshing afternoon along Stormalong Bay, my wife and I returned to our room and got ready for the Villains Unleashed party at Hollywood Studios.  This was the centerpiece and reason we made this trip.  My wife loves the Disney villains and we missed out on last year’s event.  So when we found out about this year’s event, we jumped on the opportunity.

Weekend Trip Report – Day One
