Disney California Adventure will be Halloween central when the new Oogie Boogie Bash takes place on select nights in September and October.
Replacing Mickey’s Halloween Party, the new event is inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. In addition to a new name, Disney also gives the spooky event a new home, moving the event from Disneyland Park to Disney California Adventure.
Creepy lighting, projections, sounds, and special effects will transform Redwood Creek as the villain-themed walk-through will feature cauldrons full of treats; but beware, as you enjoy trick-or-treating, villains will be haunting the trail. Even the Oogie Boogie himself will have his watchful eyes set on you.
A D.J. will spin the hit songs from the “Descendants” films in the Backlot area of Hollywood Land at the DescenDance party, while young guests will enjoy the Mickey’s Trick and Treat interactive show at the Disney Theater, also held in Hollywood Land.
The highlight of the night will be the Frightfully Fun Parade, including The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow just ahead of the parade. Jack Skellington and many mischievous Disney villains will joinMickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in celebration of All Hallows Eve.
Exclusive to the Oogie Boogie Bash is Villainous!, a World of Color nighttime spectacular and a perfect ending to a not-so-scary, fun-filled event.
The party will run for 20 nights from September 17 through Halloween night. Guests, children and adults alike, are encouraged to attend the event in a costume. The party is set to start at 6 p.m. Guests are allowed into Disney California Adventure three hours before the start of the party on Tuesday and Thursday nights (excluding October 29th and October 31st) and four hours before the start of the party on Sunday nights. Admission ranges from $110 to $145 per person per night.
