Fall is almost here, and the Disneyland Resort is getting ready to celebrate the Halloween season! This year brings a brand-new, separate ticket: Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party at Disney California Adventure park. You’ll be in for some spooktacular fun. Age is irrelevant as there is something for everyone at this new party starting September 17, 2019, and available for 20 select nights in 2019.
The menacing Oogie Boogie has cast a spell and summoned the Disney villains so they can scare up some spooky surprises. Tricks AND treats will be in Oogie Boogie’s bag. Here’s a sneak peak at some of the new experiences that will be available to party guests (and ghouls) this year.
1. DescenDANCE Party
At the Backlot area of Hollywood Land, you will be able to find a interactive dance party. This party is inspired by the “Descendants” franchise that can be seen exclusively on the Disney Channel. A dance crew from the Isle of the Lost is summoned when a spell is cast and everyone is lead in dance moves from all three of the “Descendants” movies. Watch out for magic mirrors! You just might find the the original “Villain Kids” crashing through them. Throughout the evening, the Backlot DJ will continue to play tunes and invite everyone to step on the dance floor.
2. Frightfully Fun Parade
The “Frightfully Fun Parade” will be migrating across the way from Disneyland Park this year. As usual, you can spot the Headless Horsemen of Sleepy Holly kicking off the parade with his flickering lantern. Following the Headless Horseman will be a parade of Disney characters and those mischievous villains. Watch out — they want to get some trouble started!
3. Immersive Treat Trails
One of the things I enjoy the most about the Disney Halloween parties is the fact that everyone can go trick-or-treating…whether you’re a 1-year-old or a 101-year old! There will be all-new treat trails throughout the park that you can visit with your family. As you go trick-or-treating keep your eyes out for such iconic characters rarely see in the parks like Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”…or maybe even Oogie Boogie himself. There will be additional treat trails scattered around the park which will have oversized cauldrons filled to the rim with treats for everyone to enjoy.
4. Mickey’s Trick & Treat
This all-new stage show will have you join Mickey Mouse and his friends as they throw a one-of-a-kind Halloween party! This show is especially great for little monsters as they can dance and enjoy not-so-frightening tales and eat candy at the Disney Theater in Hollywood Land.
5. Villains Grove
If you could look inside the minds of your favorite Disney villains and walk through the images in hidden there, Villains Grove is the place for you. This experience will be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. As you walk through the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, it is transformed into Villains Grove: an interactive, dreamlike environment that has been inspired by the villains and is for all ages to wander through. You will encounter a series of scenes along with an accompanying not-so-scary symphony of of light, sounds, and shadows that you can explore on your own…or better yet explore as a group!
This brand-new show takes over “World of Color” as you watch this story of a young girl named “Shelley Marie” (a nod to author Mary Shelley). This show can only be viewed during the Oogie Boogie Bash. Shelley Marie will encounter Dr. Facilier, Hades, Jafar, Maleficent, Ursula and more villains! The shows special effects will create an amazing encounter including fountains, lasers, lights, and projections. Villainous! is sure to bring out the villain in all of us.
One of my favorite things about the Disney Halloween parties is that you get to come dressed for Halloween. There will be plenty of opportunities to mingle and take pictures with Disney characters–and villains!
