Halloweentime is one of the most popular and fun-filled times to visit the Disneyland Resort every year. This September and October, Disney California Adventure Park will have a brand-new, separately ticketed, after-hours event hosted by the Villains and Mr. Oogie Boogie himself. Disney’s wicked “monster of scare-e-monies” will be throwing a Halloween spooktacular unlike any other, including access to attractions and all-new entertainment experiences. There is going to be something for everyone! Wear your favorite spooky gear and prepare for a delightfully frightful night of Halloween antics for villains of all ages. Guests can pick from 20 haunting nights to wake the dread, starting September 17.
There will be plenty of entertainment offerings for guests as well, as Disney is adding an all-new World of Color show called “Villainous!” and a new stage show in Hollywoodland called “Mickey’s Trick and Treat Show.” Here is an excerpt from Disney Parks Blog on all the offerings available during Oogie Boogie Bash:
“Villainous!” – The new “World of Color” show weaves a Halloween tale about a young girl named Shelley Marie. This twisted tale carries Shelley on an unforgettable journey, exploring the villainous side of Disney characters through fountains, lights, lasers, projections and special effects. “Villainous!” shows that, deep down, there’s a little villain in all of us.© Disney / Disney Parks Blog, 2019
Redwood Creek Challenge Trail – Transformed into a wondrous and ethereal world of Disney villains unlike anything seen before, Redwood Creek will be tricked out in a dreamlike environment. This new experience unfolds in a series of scenes, each creating a hauntingly beautiful dream-space of color, sound, light and
shadows, as stories emerge from the darkest night to create an enchanting world.
Immersive Treat Trails – Enjoy trick-or-treating at the new, wonderfully wicked treat trails throughout the park. Iconic characters such as Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” or even Oogie Boogie himself will surprise and delight. Additional treat trails will feature oversized cauldrons full of treats for all guests to enjoy.
– A new pulsing party in the Backlot area of Hollywood Land is inspired by the popular “Descendants” franchise from the Disney Channel. As the DescenDance
begins, a spell is cast
, summoning the greatest dance crew from the Isle of the Lost to throw down and lead everyone in moves that are set to the biggest hit songs from the “Descendants” films.
“Frightfully Fun Parade” – The guest-favorite parade is coming to Disney California Adventure park for the first time! The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow starts the procession, followed by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse who lead the cavalcade of characters and many mischievous Disney villains who are ready to stir up some trouble along the parade route.
Mickey’s Trick and Treat show – Perfect for young guests, this new, interactive stage production invites kids of all ages to join Mickey Mouse and his pals as they throw a one-of-a-kind Halloween party! Enjoy dancing, not-so-frightening scary-tales, and candy at the Disney Theater in Hollywood Land.
Character encounters – Meet beloved Disney characters – and villains, too. You may be surprised at who you discover at this Halloween party, ready for photos and greetings!
