Oogie Boogie Bash Overrun With Ticket Scalpers

The Oogie Boogie Bash, named after the infamous villain from The Nightmare Before Christmas, is a spooktacular event filled with thrilling entertainment and exclusive experiences. This separately-ticketed Halloween party takes place on select nights throughout the Halloween season. The event features things like the Frightfully Fun Parade, Villains Grove, and Treat Trails, which are not normally seen in the Parks.

Due to the popularity of this event, fans were prepared to wait all day to purchase tickets yesterday, July 11. After numerous issues on Disney’s end, thousands of fans are left disappointed and ticketless. To make matters worse, fans were able to find numerous eBay listings for Disney Park event tickets, proving that scalpers were able to secure tickets instead of fans.
