No one does Halloween quite like Disney does it! No one does Halloween for as long as Disney does it either! Halloween in Disney Parks begins in late August and the party doesn’t stop until November! At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida you can catch Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and over at Disneyland Resort in California you can attend Oogie Boogie Bash!
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and offers a rare opportunity to dress in costume (for most of the year guests age 14 and up are banned from wearing costumes). According to Disney you can,”See some favorite Disney villains and characters in Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade and satisfy your sweet tooth as you trick-or-treat throughout the Park for Guests of all ages.” There are also special character meet and greets that you won’t find anywhere else and a special fireworks show that you can only see during the party.
Over in California, Oogie Boogie takes control of Disney California Adventure and unleashes a wicked good time! Disneyland’s website describes Oogie Boogie Bash as a “family-friendly event [that] includes after-hours park access to treat trails, photo opportunities, entertainment, attractions, frightfully fun decor and more.” Costumes are encouraged here as the 14 and up rule is relaxed for this even just like it is in Florida.
Both the Oogie Boogie Bash and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party are incredibly popular and tickets are limited. Oogie Boogie Bash tickets went on back sale today after technical difficulties the first time around. However, they won’t be on sale tomorrow. If you plan to attend this incredibly popular event we hope you already got your tickets! The event sold out completely in one day! This is almost unheard of but goes to show just how popular the event is. If you weren’t able to score tickets today, don’t lose hope! People will undoubtedly cancel freeing up more spaces.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party tickets are also on sale but at the time of this writing, only Halloween night is sold out. While we do expect the event to sell out (like it did last year), there isn’t such a sense of urgency for the Florida event. While Disney doesn’t release attendance numbers or the number of tickets sold for limited events, Magic Kingdom is considerably bigger than California Adventure which means Disney can sell more tickets without guests feeling overcrowded. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party also has more dates. There are only 25 nights to catch Oogie Boogie Bash while there are a staggering 40 nights for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
It’s possible that Disneyland Resort may add additional dates or release additional tickets for the Oogie Boogie Bash. They have added extra availability and dates for events in the past so it’s not completely unheard of. That said, we wouldn’t bank on that happening. As always Disney Dining will be watching closely. If anything changes, we will be sure to let you know immediately. You can also check Disney’s official website for cancelations
