Sunset Showcase Disney’s Hollywood Studios


A special event venue, Sunset Showcase on Sunset Boulevard is adjacent to Rock ‘n Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This entertainment showplace has been custom-designed to host a variety of different experiences over time. It is set to become the home of the new attraction, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, as of March 31, 2019.


When open, this enclosed venue features a cool seating area where you can refuel and recharge – both yourself and your electronic devices – before heading out for more adventures in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

It was recently used as a character meet & greet location in August 2017 during Disney PhotoPass Day events.


Club Disney

The first engagement at the new Sunset Showcase was Club Disney, which was an electric club environment, where a DJ Club Host spun a playlist of Radio Disney Top 40 songs as the floor and walls came alive with vivid images from classic Disney animation. Club Disney premiered at Sunset Showcase on December 5, 2015.

Club VillainThe Sunset Showcase was also home to Club Villain. The specially ticketed event featured performances, food, cocktails and encounters with some of the greatest Disney villains. The mysterious Dr. Facilier was host for the evening, welcoming guests and his friends from the “other side” to his parlor of mystical mishaps, with musical numbers and a wicked mix from his house DJ. Also stopping by to socialize were those divas of evil, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, Cruella De Vil and the Evil Queen.

Club Villain is not currently being offered.
