Details Announced For 2023 Oogie Boogie Bash At Disney California Adventure


When Halloween Time returns to Disneyland Resort this fall, the after-hours Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure will also be back for 25 nights of fright, fun, and trick-or-treating! For those that love the Halloween season, the Oogie Boogie Bash offers many opportunities to celebrate Disney-style with special character appearances, shows, and parades, similar to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party that takes place at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

Oogie Boogie Bash is one of the exclusive events each year where costumes for all ages of guests are permitted in the park!  While the party officially begins at 6:00PM, ticket holders may take advantage of extra park time by entering Disney California Adventure as early as 3:00PM. After 6:00PM, guests have five full hours of exploring the spooky selections and ghoulish goodies detailed below that appear at this year’s Oogie Boogie Bash.

Treat Trails

Scattered throughout the park are Treat Trails, special Disney villain-themed and decorated areas where you will encounter the villains themselves and the opportunity to collect Mars candies like M&Ms, Skittles, and Snickers. Bring your own container to collect your goodies or pick up a free bag at the entrance.

Frightfully Fun Parade

Make your way to the streets for the Frightfully Fun Parade beginning each evening of the party.  Spectators can expect to see Mickey, Minnie, Disney villains, and other Halloween entertainers. The Headless Horseman leads the procession and Cheshire Cat serves as the tail of this Halloween-themed parade.
