As the summer sets to a close, Disney fans are gearing up for their favorite times of the year. Fall, Halloween specifically, brings a truckload of fun experiences to Disney Parks. From spooktacular merchandise to beautiful Park decor (not to mention cooler temperatures), Halloween at Disney is a must-do for many Disney fans. Halloween events at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort remain some of the most coveted ticket items and for a good reason. These hard-ticket parties are a blast! Experiencing Disney during Halloween not only gives Guests an exclusive look at the Parks in an entirely new and not-so-scary way, but it also is the perfect way to kick off the most wonderful time of year (still talking about Halloween, Christmas can wait its turn). Disneyland’s California Adventure Oogi Boogie Bash is one of the premier events where Guests can get spooky!
Disney released tickets for this highly sought-after event only a few days ago. Fans reported waiting online for hours in hopes of a chance to snag their Oogie Boogie Bash tickets. However, some fans waited in vain as Disneyland promptly stopped ticket sales. Instead of securing tickets for Oogi Boogie Bash, Guests were met with this message via the ticket page:
“We are aware of a technical issue with Oogie Boogie Bash ticket sales, which have been temporarily paused. Teams are working to find a resolution as quickly as possible. We will update the website when we know more. Please be advised that call center wait times are heavily impacted currently.”
Guests were distraught to say the least when tickets sales to the Disneyland California Adventure event caused Disney’s system to fail. Many were left wondering if they’d get another shot at acquiring tickets this year! It seems that those who didn’t gain access to this specially ticketed event can sigh relief as, according to Scott Gustin on Twitter, Disneyland will resume Oogie Boogie Bash ticket sales on July 11 by 9 am Pacific Standard Time.

This is fantastic news, as many could not secure their purchases for Disneyland and California Adventure’s primary Halloween event. We can only hope that Disney could figure out what caused the technical difficulties they experienced when standard tickets were available the first time around.
About Oogie Boogie Bash: A Disney Halloween Party
A Disney Halloween party is one of the most popular events you’ll find at either Walt Disney World or Disneyland. Much like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Oogie Boogie Bash is a specially ticketed event at Disneyland Resort, specifically California Adventure. Guests look forward to the Halloween-themed party all year, hence the overloaded ticketing issue when purchases become available. These Halloween events are exclusive to Guests who have secured a Oogie Boogie Bash ticket and guarantee a ton of fun with shorter wait times, rare characters, Halloween shows and parades, and much more. Many popular Disney attractions get layovers or additions, such as The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. Oogie Boogie Bash runs from early September thru Halloween night, with tickets ranging from $134 to $189 in costs.
Treat trails, frightfully fun parades, and spooky scenery are just a few of the exciting options available at Oogie Boogie Bash. Be sure to check out Villains Grover as well. Last year, Guests were treated to an amazing performance by Ernesto De La Cruz, had the time of their lives as Dr. Facilier called his friends from the other side, and navigated their way through Scar’s Bone Graveyard! The sites and sounds of Halloween literally come alive, there’s so much to see and do. There’s plenty to eat as well, as Oogie Boogie Bash is reknown for it’s nasty snacks and exclusive beverages! Be sure to check out Disneyland too as the Park hosts a beautiful array of Fall and Halloween decor for Guests!
Tips for Securing Tickets to Oogie Boogie Bash
There is little you can do to ensure that you’re going to get a ticket if Disney’s systems struggle like last time. The best advice we have is to be patient. Many Guests reported being online in the queue for hours before being about to buy their tickets. We also suggest logging on and being ready to go early somewhere with a very secure internet connection. Ensuring that there are no technical difficulties on your end will go a long way in determining your ticket-purchasing experience. Don’t be surprised if Disney’s systems run a little slower. Oogie Boogie Bash is a top-rated event, and a lot of people will be online trying to secure tickets. If there are any issues with your purchase, be sure to contact Disney but expect longer than normal wait times. Best of luck, happy ticket hunting, and stay spooky friends!
