This year, Halloween at Disney California Adventure Park will be celebrated with a new party: The Oogie Boogie Bash, inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas.

At the Oogie Boogie Bash, Oogie Boogie himself has cast a spell, calling all the villains to help scare up some surprises including new entertainment, treats, and decorations. All of Disney California Adventure Park will get involved with a range of Halloween fun.

A new World of Colour show, ‘Villainous!’ sees Oogie Boogie tell the tale of a young girl called Shelley Marie (a brand new character) who wonders which Disney-themed costume she should wear for Halloween. She is taken on an adventure, showing the villainous side to the characters through lights, special effects, and even the fountains! ‘Villainous!’ shows that there is a little bit of villain in all of us.

In the backlot of Hollywood Land, you will find ‘DescenDance’, inspired by Disney Channel show ‘Descendants’. As the show begins, a spell is cast, summoning the greatest dance crew from the Isle of the Lost who will wow you with their moves and encourage you to join in with songs from the show. After the show, the Backlot DJ will return with all your favourite songs to fill the dancefloor.

The Frightfully Fun Parade will make its debut at California Adventure Park this year. Fronted by the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow, the parade will include a range of your favourite characters – heroes and villains alike. But watch the villains don’t get up to any tricks.

Treat trails throughout the park make your trick-or-treating fun even more memorable. You’ll be under the watchful eye of iconic characters such as the Mad Hatter and maybe even Oogie Boogie himself. Treat trails will include giant cauldrons full of treats.

Everyone is encouraged to dress up for the party, but costumes must be family-friendly. Find out more about the parks’ dress codes here.

The Oogie Boogie Bash will take place for 20 select nights between 17th September and 31st October. Your Boogie Bash ticket includes entrance to the parks before the party which starts at 6pm. Tickets go on sale 30th April, or 23rd April for Annual Pass holders. You can get your tickets here, call 714-781-4636, or even buy them at the gate if you’re lucky!
