We can’t wait to see what Oogie Boogie has been up to when we attend the Oogie Boogie Bash—A Disney Halloween party on select nights from September 17th to October 31st. He’s the master of scare-e-monies at the new separately-ticketed event at Disney California Adventure® Park this year, and it’s going to be a screeeeeamer! Purchase your tickets ahead of time here and, Cardmembers, remember to take advantage of any Disney Rewards Dollars you’ve accumulated and use them towards your ticket purchase.1

“Oogie Boogie gave us a chance to create a slightly edgier, but still fun atmosphere that was different from the feeling at Disneyland® Park”, says Jordan Peterson, Show Director at Disney Parks live entertainment. “The classic Halloween party elements are all there, but we’ve been able to bring different angles to the fun.” Here’s a sneaky peek at the mischievous mayhem Oogie Boogie has brewed up for your personal scare-e-bration at this event.

    • “Villainous!” The All-New World of Color Nighttime Spectacular

Projections, fountains, lasers and special effects take you on a journey through the Magic Mirror, where you encounter a host of Disney Villains including The Evil Queen, Ursula, Dr. Facilier, Hades and other scoundrels. Oogie Boogie brings the story to a grand finale that will inspire you to celebrate your own inner villain.

    • Magic At Redwood Creek

If you dare, take the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail! As evening falls, projections, sounds and special effects transform it into an ethereal world of color, sound, and misty shadows as stories emerge all around you.

    • DescenDANCE Party

Rock out with the number one dance crew from Isle of the Lost at the interactive DescenDANCE party four to five times nightly at the Backlot area of Hollywood Land. They’ll be teaching you their best moves, so you can learn to perform like a “VK!” (Villain Kid).

    • Mickey’s Trick & Treat

Looking for something for your youngest tricksters? Join Mickey and his pals for a Halloween party at the Disney Theater in Hollywood Land. Everyone gets involved in the telling of a fun and not-so-scary story filled with dancing, music and plenty of candy.

    • First-Time Ever Themed Treat Trails

Hang onto your treat bags! Some of Oogie Boogie‘s best bad buddies may show up along immersive treat trails, which have been themed to represent various worlds. You might encounter the Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland or even Oogie Boogie himself.

    • Seek Out Rare Characters

“Now meeting the Characters is its own kind of interactive experience,” Peterson says. “You follow a map to themed locations, so it’s a bit like a hunt for places to snap photos and exchange Halloween hugs. You’ll never know who you may meet, including some Characters who are rarely seen in the Park.”

    • Frightfully Fun Parade

The beloved Halloween parade comes to Disney California Adventure® Park for the first time. The Headless Horseman appears to herald favorite Disney Characters on the route between Carthay Circle and Paradise Pier, followed by some fave Characters all decked out for Halloween.

The ambiance sets the perfect tone for your evening of wonder.
