This is seriously messed up!

Right now, Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort are gearing up for the most exciting season of the year. Halloween and the Holidays are growing closer each day, and fans are eagerly anticipating this exciting annual tradition.

No one knows how to celebrate the fall and winter seasons quite like Disney does. Every year, tickets for the Park’s Halloween and Holiday after-hours parties are incredibly popular. The events usually sell out within a few days of the tickets being on sale.

Ticket Sale Mayhem for Halloween Party

Earlier this month, tickets for Oogie Boogie Bash, the Halloween party at Disney California Adventure, went on sale. Oogie Boogie Bash, named after the mischievous and iconic character from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, has become a must-attend event for Disney enthusiasts. Held annually, this spooktacular celebration takes place at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. It is an after-hours event that offers Guests the opportunity to enjoy California Adventure’s enchanting attractions, shows, and treats styled especially for Halloween.

The event is always massively popular, and demand was so high this year that the ticket website crashed on the day of the general sale. When the ticket site was up days later, the event sold out on the first day.

Fans who were not able to get a ticket were sad. The sadness turned into fury when people saw that resellers were marking up the ticket prices to hundreds of dollars a ticket. One listing was selling four tickets for $2,000!

TikToker Makes a Platform Teaching People To “Scalp” Tickets

The resale market for these tickets is clearly lucrative. A shocking account on TikTok called @teamflipflip is actually teaching people how to buy massive amounts of Disney special event tickets so that they can resell them for a massive markup. This is such bad behavior to see.

However, Karma may be coming for these evil scalpers. Disney has reportedly been cracking down on resellers. If an Annual Passholder is caught reselling a ticket with a markup, they will potentially have their Annual Pass revoked. Disney is not messing around with this policy, and hopefully, it will drive down demand for these resellers’ services.
