Oogie Boogie Bash Tips

Oogie Boogie Bash Tips

The Oogie Boogie Bash is the Disney Halloween party that runs on select nights in September and October at California Adventure. We are going to share some of the Oogie Boogie Bash tips that make a perfect night at this highly anticipated special event.

Before we talk about Oogie Boogie Bash tickets and how to get them and all the Oogie Boogie Bash Tips, let’s discuss what there is to do at Oogie Boogie Bash and whether or not it is worth it. 

Is Oogie Boogie Bash Worth it?

Let’s start with the elephant in the room. Is this after-hours event actually worth it? Oogie Boogie Bash is completely worth it: fewer people, shorter wait times, a special themed event, a Halloween time celebration, unique food, rare characters, and lots of fun. What more could you ask for?

I actually attended this event solo for the first time and have to say it was an absolute blast to run around California Adventure and not have to worry about anyone else and just do what I wanted the entire time. 

While I did go to this event solo, I will definitely be going back solo again and will go as a family one day as well. These party nights are so much fun and are making me consider some of the other various after-hours events that Disney hosts each year.

Let’s discuss what there is to do at the Oogie Boogie Bash and then the best tips for the event.

Things to do at Oogie Boogie Bash

There is a LOT to do at the party, and it’s tough to do it all, so it’s really important to create an ideal plan for your limited time in the park. If you are able to make it into the park at the mix in time, you will have around 8 hours in the park. 

We will talk more specifics on each of the following items so you can make the best use of your time and decide whether or not its something you find important.

My Top Tips for Oogie Boogie Bash

I wasn’t able to get everything done, but I got almost everything I wanted done. The one thing I wish I would have made more of a priority was the Sanderson Sisters and Villains Grove. Both have been at every Oogie Boogie Bash, and those will be a top priority for the next one I attend. 


If you have a general admission ticket to Disney’s California Adventure Park on the day of the event, rides might not be a top priority for you during the party since you were able to ride them all day. There is one special ride that switches themes and is only available after 3:00. Guardian switches to Monsters After Dark and is a fabulous overlay to the already thrilling Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Break Out!


Characters seem to be a top priority for many guests. Mostly the rare characters at the photo opportunity spots and through the treat tails. Lines started for the photo opportunities almost right away, but Judge Doom had a 2-hour wait at the beginning of the night and 5 minutes at the end of the night. During the first parade i was able to see Oogie Boogie twice.

Villains Grove

Villains Grove is a 50/50 toss-up in popularity. I happened to skip it because the line was too long after the parade when I wanted to go. Pretty bummed I missed this and wish I would have prioritized it a little move over a ride. I chose to get on Soarin’ instead of jumping in line for Villains Grove. 

Rare Items and Merchandise

It took me 8 times walking around the park to find this Rare Popcorn Bucket. While the 30th Anniversary Zero was very cute as well, there is nothing like the Mayor’s Car, the Trio Children, and Zero all in one spot. 

Pick up the Oogie Boogie Bash merchandise as soon as you see it. There are limited quantities, and if you want something, don’t wait too long to buy it because they could sell out. You can always rent a locker to hold all of your items so you don’t have to carry them around the park all night. 


Book reservations ahead of time for any food you might want. In addition to reservations, consider mobile ordering food so you don’t waste time in line ordering food. I like to eat on the go to make the best of my time. You can also order alcohol through mobile order.

Scroll through the tip board on the Disneyland app for ride queue times and show times.

Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets

This year is sold out, and I would highly suggest not purchasing tickets from anyone. Disney doesn’t allow transfers, and I would be fearful it wouldn’t be an authentic ticket. 

One of the Oogie Boogie Bash Facebook groups in apart of did have a buy day and could possibly still find tickets. The group seems legit and the admin seems well organized. 

I’ve never bought a transferred ticket for Oogie, so I would be very careful still. I did purchase tickets for a friend and have them on my account because of how the purchasing process works. 

They are also on their account, so if someone is going to buy your ticket, make sure you trust them. 

Ticket prices started from $135 and went as high as $189 depending on the night you pick. 

This party ticket allowed you to get into the event at 3:00 for a mix-in.

Oogie Boogie Bash Tips For Tickets

Tickets go on sale around June 27th for the September and October Oogie Boogie Bash Party at Disney’s California Adventure.

Many people will tell you to log on with multiple devices, and while this is a tactic that works for some, I have to admit it wasn’t something I did either time. 

I was one of the lucky few who got tickets on the first day tickets launched and was also able to get tickets on the second launch day as well. 

Log on with one device, many people rush the system with more than one device, and I feel like that is what caused the major crash that caused ticket sales to crash and Disney to relaunch sales a week later. If you want to read more about the Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets Debacle and what happened, head here. 

While I am not a tech guru, and the reason has been pretty hush-hush, Disney being the largest corporation and having sold tickets to Oogie Boogie in previous years, it is surprising that it crashed.

For both the original release and the second release to the general public, I only used one device and was able to get in multiple times to get tickets.

Magic Key holders could purchase tickets a few days ahead of general ticket sales. 

We will put our tips to the test again next year and see how it works out.

Understanding Everything to do at Oogie Boogie Bash

Let’s now dive into each of the things you can do at the Oogie Boogie Bash so you can create your ideal plan of attack. 

Cruella Hollywood Land Stage

See Rare Characters at Photo Opportunities and Treat Trails with Villains

At the Oogie Boogie Bash, there are two ways to see rare characters we don’t often or ever get to see in the Disneyland Resort and Disney Parks.

One way to see Villains is at the photo opportunities spots around the park. These are going to have long lines, and if you have to see one of these special characters, you will want to make it a priority to hunt down your character and get in line before the party starts. The Sanderson Sisters will have the longest line, but it is one of the best photo ops.

The other way you can see Villains is on the treat trails. The treat trails are a drive-by style character trick-or-treating trail. There is a spot to stop quickly and take a photo with the characters, but this is not somewhere to stop everything and try to get your photo. The reason the treat trails move so quickly is because of the walking style.

Tips for Oogie Boogie Bash Trick or Treat

The treat bags that Disney passes out are small, and many like to bring their own bags to fill. 

Most of the Rare characters that are a part of the immersive treat trails are Disney Villains that you do not get to see on a regular basis within the park.

  • Sanderson Sisters Minnie Mouse, Daisy and Clarabelle
  • Bruno

With the relaunch of Toontown and Mickey and Minnie Runaway Railway, this makes complete sense for this year.

Yokai from Big Hero 6

Also running strong with the new lands and areas, San Fransokyo opened In early September, so this also makes a lot of sense that they would have Baymax and Yokai at this year’s bash. 

New Villains Oogie Boogie Bash Tips

Don’t jump in line right away for these treat trail villains. Head to the other photo opportunity villains first and head to these treat trails towards the end of the night.

Oogie Tip, make your way to his treat trail during the parades. That side the street fills with people making it hard to move, while this sounds terrible it is the best time to go. I was able to go through twice back to back because the line was non existent.

Wine Country Trattoria Oogie Boogie Bash Parade Dining

Similar to the Dessert Party, this is an additional add-on to your party ticket. Enjoy a 3-course dinner at Wine Country Trattoria and come back for a fabulous view of the Frightfully Fun Parade. 

I haven’t heard a lot about this meal one way or another. I would say if you have been to the party a few times and are looking for something new to do, this might be a great addition to your night.

I’m assuming since it is a 3-course meal, the food will be delicious but will cut into your party time and might not be worth the trade-off. 

Oogie Boogie Bash Dessert Party by Seaside Souvenirs 

Some people are strongly against the dessert party as a separately ticketed event. Many think It cuts into their event time too much to enjoy the cost. 

It is an additional $85+ to the already ticketed event, but you get a special spot by Pixar Pier to watch the parade, and you get a drink and treats to enjoy at the event. 

Oogie Boogie Bash Tips for Dessert Party

If this is your first time attending the event you should skip this.

Queen of Hearts and Evil Queen Villains Grove

Villains Grove

Villain’s Grove is a slow-walking interactive villain-inspired environment. Located in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, which just opened back up after a long refurbishment. Pumps fog and displays Halloween-colored lights around the area. 

This area does not have characters, so to speak, but lots of animated villains hidden in the 

It begins at dusk, so the time is a little more limited for this activity inside the party. 

Oogie Boogie Bash Tips Villains Grove

Go during the parades or be ok standing in line and waiting. The Villains Grove time never dropped below 30 minutes, and by the end of the night after the second parade, I was exhausted and had no want to wait in line for the 

Mickey's Trick and Treat Showtimes

Mickey’s Trick and Treat Dance Party

The Mickey’s Trick and Treat show is held in the Disney Junior Dance Party theater right on Hollywood Lane, right on the main street. Join Mickey and his friends for Mickey’s Halloween party with a not-so-scary story and lots of music and dancing. There are multiple show times for this interactive Halloween party.

Frightfully Fun Parade

Frightfully Fun Parade

The adorable parade route runs from Goofy’s Sky School by Paradise Gardens Park and goes through Disney’s California Adventure all the way to Hollywood Land by Guardians of the Galaxy.

The parade kicks off with Headless Horseman as long as the weather is okay for him to walk. The main parade will start after he has made his way off the parade route, which takes roughly 20ish minutes. 

You will see characters like Evil Queen, Dr. Facilier, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Jack and Sally, and many more. The Haunted Mansion House was probably my favorite float out of them all and was followed by the gravediggers and their shovels. 

The stilt walkers are always my favorite individual walkers, especially because this is a long parade route, and they seem to walk with ease from one end to the other. 

I, on the other hand, am exhausted from walking around the park twice and couldn’t imagine being 3ft higher off the ground. 

While the parade is on the shorter side, it is filled with some AMAZING villains and dances.
When it comes to the busyness of the parade, a lot of people start lining up around an hour before the parade begins. 

I wouldn’t suggest you need an hour unless you are SPECIFIC about your photos and location.

There are two parades that run on Oogie Boogie Bash nights. The First parade is at 7:45, and the second parade is at 10:00.

The parade route is one of the longest Disney has, making it really easy to find a spot.

Oogie Boogie Bash Tips for A Frightfully Fun Parade

This is probably the most important Oogie Boogie Bash tips I would suggest going to the first parade. I had a lule in time where I just filled it with sitting and eating food at the restaurant and going on a ride and seeing Oogie Boogie. 

Next time I’m going to mobile order food and walk over to a trashcan to watch the parade at 7:45 and then go to Villains Grove or Rare Characters photo opportunities during the second parade instead. 

There are lots of spots to pick a spot, you cannot sit in front of the trashcans, and cast members will be holding ropes and directing people where to sit.

Unique and Exclusive Themed Food and Drinks

This is as of 2023, and there are a few things available during this time, exclusively for the event and some during event hours only.


Spicy Chicken Flos V8

Spicy Chicken and Fries

This mango-habanero sauce is spicy but with a sweet chili spice. Served with steak fries, ranch, and green onions, this was one of my absolute favorite meals at the park.

Combustable Pizza pym test kitchen

Pym Test Kitchen

The Combustible Pizza

Spicy and HUGE! Served with arugula salad, this was the best pizza I’ve had in the park. You would think with the size that, the crust would not be cooked well and soggy, but it was perfectly crisp. 

Everything is super-sized at Pym and perfect to share. You will have to have an Oogie Boogie Bash ticket for the combustible pizza.

Cappuccino Cart

Pumpkin Bundt Cake: This cute pumpkin-flavored cake in the shape of a pumpkin with dulce de leche and cream cheese frosting. 

Oogie Boogie Bash Food Tips

Mobile order! It is significantly easier to plan ahead of time with a mobile order and then pick it up when it’s ready.

The only trick is that you have to be near the location to tell the restaurant to prepare your food. 

You can walk near, say you are there, and come back when it is ready. 

Avengers Campus

This is a great opportunity to ride some of the popular rides with low wait times. Since the park is at a limited capacity and there is so much to do within the park, if you are a rides person, you will definitely love the reduced wait times on some of the popular rides within the park. 

A few of the rides at Disneyland parks actually have special overlays for the Halloween season. The two rides that receive a new twist are Hunted Mansion in Disneyland Park and Guardians of the Galaxy in California Adventure Park. 

Oogie Boogie Bash Rides

One is special to Oogie Boogie Nights and has a special overlay that begins at 3:00 when mix-in partygoers are allowed to enter the California Adventure Park.

Guardians of the Galaxy receives a Monsters After Dark overlay, and you are on a mission to save Gru from the monsters that have been let out of their cages. 

This is a little more scary than the original ride overlay and can scare children.

I thoroughly enjoy this ride either way, but I actually love the music of the original more. 

This is a great time to ride Radiator Springs since it does receive some updated lights for the Halloween season, and the queue lines are significantly shorter for this one.

Single Rider Tips for Oogie Boogie Bash

Always opt for single rider if you can, I was able to do multiple rides in a limited amount of time by going on the single rider line. 

If you are with a group, you will be split up, but you can always talk about the ride afterward. 

Another side note this is a really quick “rider-swap” option if you do have your children with you during the bash.

Purchase a Rare Popcorn Bucket and Sippers and Merchandise

This was a MUST for me! If there was anything that had to get done, it was a picture with Cruella and the Nightmare Before Christmas Mayor Popcorn Bucket, and for those two things, I was successful.

There were many special and unique popcorn buckets and sippers to select from this year. 

Zero was REALLY easy to find and seemed to not be sold out. The Mayor, on the other hand, I had to circle the park quite a few times to locate him. 

Finally, I found him outside Toy Story Mania at the Popcorn at Pixar Pier around 10:00.

Getting into the Park and Check-in for the Oogie Boogie Bash

Partygoers are allowed into the park for a few extra hours, called mix-in time. This starts at 3:00. 

The line to get in at 3:00 started forming at 2:00 in a single line off to the side. 

DON’T be a sheep. DON’T do this.

Line up at one of the many turn styles at the gates of the Disney California Adventure Park. 

If you want into the party at 3:00, you need to get in line about 45 min early to stand in line. It is really sunny, and there is little to no shade unless you are one of the first few in line. 

I was able to snag a small sliver of shade, but the line quickly grew, and there were a good hundred people in the sun waiting to get inside for an hour. 

Once party guests are allowed to join other parkgoers for this mix-in time, this is a good time to enjoy rides, eat food, and map out your game plan if you have not already. 

Some people say you can enter through the Grand California entrance, while I do trust the blogger I head this from, I just couldn’t risk getting in line over there and being denied because I wasn’t a Grand California Guest. 

Next time I will try this out and see if it works, the walk from Grand California to California Adventure through Downtown Disney is not too far away, and I might miss out on 20 or so minutes. 

The line takes a little bit to get through because the cast members have to scan your ticket and then take your picture. Why they take your picture, I am not sure. Possibly so that tickets aren’t transferred between guests, and they have a photo of the person it is supposed to be. 

You will receive the trick-or-treat bag and your map of the Oogie Boogie Bash.

What Should You Wear to the Oogie Boogie Bash

Southern California can be hot but can also get a little cool at night. Good news Fall weather officially shows up around mid-November, giving you the best odds for comfortable temperatures. 

We suggest sunscreen so you don’t get burned for the few hours you have in the sun as well as a light jacket or a long sleeve if you are making the walk back to your hotel after the event finishes. My favorite thing to do is buy a Spirit Jersey once I get to the park since they always have a themed one or special Disneyland park jersey for that year. 

I brought my costume with me to put on when the party started. 

While I did LOVE my costume and dressing up next time, I am going to wear just a themed shirt and my tennis skirt. 

My costume was wonderful, but it did not survive the theme park day. Guardians broke both chains on my shoulders, and the restrictiveness of movement made it very hard to sling my webs easily. Priorities I know. 

But here are some ideas on what to wear to the Oogie Boogie Bash.
