- by Andrew McDaniel
CHARLOTTE, NC - Disney’s Hollywood Studios® held a special one-night event, “Villains Unleashed,” which was a big hit with attendees thanks to some special help from Chiquita's Apple Bites snacks. During the event, which featured famous Disney villians, guests were encouraged to dress up like their own favorite villain and enjoy a night of specialty drinks, treats, fireworks and fun.
Guests who stopped by to see the Evil Queen from Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs were rewarded with a Disney-themed surprise thanks to Chiquita. Instead of a poisoned apple, these attendees were given a healthy snack to fuel their exploits throughout the rest of the evening: Chiquita Apple Bites.
According to a press release, other villains featured in the show included Cruella De Vil from Walt Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, the Evil Queen from Walt Disney’s Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, Maleficent from Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and Hades from Disney’s Hercules.
Chiquita shared how it is proud to be the exclusive supplier of branded bananas and salads for Walt Disney World® Resort and Disney Cruise Line. The grower also supplies all runDisney events with healthy snacks in an attempt to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
In addition to providing fresh produce for the company, Chiquita also sponsors the tropical fruit processing center themed “Crush ‘n’ Gusher Water Thrill Ride” attraction at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, as well as the “Living with the Land” Epcot® attraction which takes guests into The Land Pavilion’s greenhouses to explore advances in agriculture.
