Disneyland Halloween Party Costumes

All guests are encouraged to dress in costume and trick or treat at various treat stations during Oogie Boogie Bash. Adults and kids dress in a variety of costumes. My family went as “Share a Coke” bottles. There are certain “Share a Coke” labels you can only find in Disney Parks, so we re-created them for a unique costume idea that was both comfortable and weather appropriate.

Costume guidelines have been updated; always check the official Disneyland Resort guidelines first. All guests may dress in costume for this special event but they must be child-friendly and must follow the guidelines here.

 Remember to keep your costume simple if riding attractions is your goal. You want something you can move around in and that’s cool enough for warm Southern California weather, even in the fall. Bring hoodies for the evening hours.


Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Party What’s Included

Disneyland Resort’s Halloween Party is indeed a family event. Including all the rides being open, you’ll find so many entertainment and trick or treat options it will be hard to fit in everything on your list.

For younger crowds, be sure to have a nap before the party begins. There’s so much to do and see, especially for kids and tweens at Oogie Boogie Bash. Read what Disney Parks Blog had to say about two new events joining the line up at Oogie Boogie Bash.

PhotoPass

Take advantage of all the free photos with PhotoPass photographers during your visit to California Adventure. I’ve listed some of my favorites here, but there will be many more during the party!

DescenDANCE Party

DescenDance Disney Halloween Party

Only during Oogie Boogie Bash. “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.”

DescenDANCE Party Times, hosted on nights of Oogie Boogie Bash at 6:15, 7:30, 8:45, 9:45 and 10:30.

Mickey’s Trick and Treat Show

Exclusive to Oogie Boogie Bash. “‘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!”

Mickeys Trick and Treat Show

Mickey’s Trick or Treat Show Times, hosted on nights of Oogie Boogie Bash at 6:25, 7:10, 7:55, 9:25 and 10:15. These are super late times for the young target audience. If your little ones can take a late nap, you’ll see much lower crowds during later shows. If you want to see earlier shows, arrive at least 45 minutes prior. 

Trick or Treat Trails

Let’s talk candy and trick or treating at Disney California Adventure! Yes, you can trick or treat during Oogie Boogie Bash. Everyone is encouraged to trick or treat, even adults. My husband wasn’t on board for trick or treating at first but I told him it skipping it wasn’t an option. Joining in the trick or treating fun seriously has everyone giddy and feeling like a kid again.

Halloween Party Disneyland

 

Only during Oogie Boogie Bash. Stop to trick or treat at marked trails throughout the park. Trails are clearly marked on the map you pick up when you arrive. Each trail has several trick or treat spots where you will pick up candy and snacks along the route. We found that the first stop usually gave candy or chocolate (Butterfinger, Hershey, Starburst, etc.) and the other few along the trail gave out snack items (Cheez-Its, Goldfish Crackers, Apple Slices, etc.). 

 

Disneyland candy haul

New in 2019, iconic Halloween characters such as Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” and even Oogie Boogie himself will be on call for the festivities. Additional treat trails, including an all-new “Villains Grove”  will feature oversized cauldrons full of treats for all guests to enjoy.

 

Frightfully Fun Parade

Halloween at Disneyland is a delightful sight with fall decor everywhere you look. In addition to Disney characters in seasonal costumes, Halloween inspired attractions and trick or treat stations, guests at Oogie Boogie Bash will enjoy a huge assortment of fun and frights. The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow (from “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad”) will ride through the center of it all starting with the pre-parade.

Frightfully Fun Parade Time, hosted on nights of Oogie Boogie Bash at 8:15 pm.

Headless Horseman Disneyland

You can only see this parade during Oogie Boogie Bash. Mickey and Minnie Mouse are among the first Disney characters to join the parade and it gets increasingly scary as it goes along. The parade route at California Adventure is extensive and you should be able to get good viewing wherever you decide to watch. 

Halloween Parade Disneyland

New in 2019, the whimsical favorite Cheshire Cat joins the parade! I can’t wait to see that mischievous smile make its way down the parade route. 

Villainous! World of Color

Only during Oogie Boogie BashA new Halloween version of World of Color where you’ll hear a Halloween tale about a young girl named Shelley Marie while 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.

Halloween World of Color Villainous

Villainous! World of Color Times, hosted on nights of Oogie Boogie Bash at 9:00 and 10:45 pm, no need to secure a FASTPASS since this is a special after-hours event. 

 

Disneyland Halloween Party Villains & Disney Characters

There are tons of character meet and greet opportunities. If this is your thing, plan on some longer wait times. The rare characters who only come out for the party are very popular.

If you want to up the spook-factor, you definitely want to utilize the Disneyland App and Oogie Boogie Bash guide upon entry to locate your favorites. We saw Maleficent and Hades (from Hercules) who was seriously SO massive and scary!

Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Pre-Party

Now that the Halloween Party is switching over to California Adventure, we still have a few unknowns about Halloween Time in general and specifically Oogie Boogie Bash. Let’s highlight some of those questions here, along with my predictions. I will continue to update this article as information is released. 

Oogie Boogie Bash Pre-Party 

When the Halloween Party was hosted at Disneyland Park, guests kicked off the party in Mickey’s Toontown for exclusive character meet and greets and trick or treating. 

No word yet if a pre-party like those in past years will happen. Stay tuned for details. Pre-party kicks of in Mickey’s Toontown a couple hours before the official start time. We skipped this and opted for a sit down dinner instead. If you do go to Mickey’s Toontown you can expect characters in Halloween attire like Mickey, Minnie, Donald and more. 

Oogie Boogie Bash Dining Packages

I anticipate Oogie Boogie Bash dining packages to be released soon. My prediction is reserved seating for Frightfully Fun Parade with dining at Carthay Circle as well as a World of Color Dessert Party, but themed for Halloween! Which one would you choose if they add these options to party nights?

Wine Country Trattoria overlooks the parade route at California Adventure.

UPDATE: Oogie Boogie dining packages are available for reserved spots during Frightfully Fun Parade. Book dining at Wine Country Trattoria and ask for the Frightfully Fun Parade upgrade at check in. 

Disneyland Halloween Party Last Minute Tips

When you arrive, you can enter California Adventure Park with your Oogie Boogie Bash ticket. You will get a wristband and trick or treat bag once you enter for the first time. If you’re already spending the day in the park, no need to exit and re-enter. Wristband distribution will take place at a location TBA. 

trick or treat bags

Will you need a locker during Oogie Boogie Bash? I sure did. We brought hoodies, pants and other items at park opening to secure a spot. Even Princess Ana needed a locker to stash all her chocolate as the night went on. Read about locker options here. And remember, if your hotel is close by like when staying at Holiday Inn Express & Suites, it makes bringing all your goodies home so much easier. 

Princess Ana locker

Remember, you can’t do it all during one night of Oogie Boogie Bash. Despite lower crowd levels, there’s so much packed into one night it’s truly impossible to do everything! Pick your favorites, do those first and everything else is icing on the cake.

Bonus tip: save trick or treating for last on your list, the candy doesn’t run out but the long lines do! Then you won’t have to lug all your candy around either.
