In my opinion, Hercules and Megara went to Mount Olympus because Hercules was Zeus's son, and Hook was there so Zeus could tell him he gets to be alive again. There is a different Better Place, where everyone else went to. Also, in the Greek mythology The Underworld and Mount Olympus are based on, Mount Olympus is the home of the Gods, not the good afterlife.
I was just saying that since Mount Olympus isn't traditionally at all part of the afterlife, the Better Place might be somewhere else, with whatever that person's version of paradise is, while Mount Olympus is just where the Gods are, and almost no dead humans live there, the sole exceptions being Megara and Hercules since Hercules is Zeus's son and has been ascended to being a god. And when we see the Better Place everyone else goes to, it doesn't look like a mountain with Greek buildings on top. If it's based on Hercules, then the Underworld would be the only Afterlife, with no Better or Worse Place, and Mount Olympus would just be the home of the gods, which of course isn't true. I would also like to suggest the possibly that the actual Better Place is being reborn, though this theory still functions without that.
It's also odd that we only see Fairy Tale Land characters or characters who have been to FTL, with one exception, Aunt Em, who would be from the alternate Kansas. (Cruella was originally from another world, too, but had been to the Enchanted Forest)
So there are most likely multiple Hades...Hadeses...Hadae(?) or similar beings for different worlds.

Mount Olympus isnt just based on Greek Myths or Disney version,its also based on Christian concept of Hevean ,so while Greek myths exist in refrences made by main characters in OUATveres as it turns out in Season 5B most of them on concept of Deities and Afterlife worlds is wrong,since this characters and locations are source of this myths and religions.
And there are no alterned afterlife worlds or other Hadeses,a world like our own or LWM is a gigantic place that houses 7 billion people so it stands to reason that Mount Olympus,Underworld and Worse Place can house and be inhabited by much more number of souls from other worlds such as:FTL,Kansas,Wonderland,OZ,Land of Untold Stories,Land without Color or LWM.
In the show Mount Olympus is the Better Place. That's it. But them it apparently got brought to the UR so thanks Regina for taking away the Afterlife, now we'll all be stuck in the UW or Worse Place upon death.
