2023 Disneyland Oogie Boogie Bash Guide


So, what is the oogie boogie bash? The Disneyland Oogie Boogie Bash replaced Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party in 2019 and we have huge fans since its debut. We are not the only ones as this event completely sold out in 2021 and we are sure that will be the same for the 2023 Oogie Boogie Bash.

2023 Oogie Boogie Bash Dates

As of this time Disney has not officially announced the 2023 Disneyland Halloween party dates. Historically the Oogie Boogie Halloween party dates have been around the second week of September through October 31st.

The 2023 Oogie Boogie nights are as follows: 

  • Anticipated: September 7th – October 31st

Oogie Boogie Bash Hours 2023


The 2023 Oogie Boogie party hours are from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM.

However guests with Oogie Boogie party tickets may enter Disney California Adventure starting at 3:00 PM. This is one of the main reasons we love this event for guests traveling to Disneyland from out of town. The extra hours are a great way to get the most out of your Halloween party ticket and also avoid possibly having to spend extra days in the parks.

When is the Best Time to Visit Oogie Boogie Bash?


Picking the best time of year to visit Disneyland is one of the more important parts of planning your Disney vacation. This is especially true when planning to visit the Disneyland Boogie Bash as these parties do sell out and can be extremely popular. On top of that they are only held for two months which is one month shorter than the Halloween events at Disney World. So picking a slow time might not be as easy as it seems.

One tip we recommend is to always take a look at a Disneyland Crowd Calendar. This will help you identify some of the slower weeks during September and October. Another tip we have is to pay attention to one day Disneyland ticket pricing. As Disney pricing now fluctuates based on the time of year you visit. With the slowest periods having cheaper pricing.

Entering Disneyland Oogie Boogie Bash Events

Disney’s California Adventure theme Park closes at 6:00 PM to regular guests during all Oogie Boogie Disneyland events. We are often asked how Disney handles the transition over to allow for guests with Oogie Boogie tickets to stay. This is handled in two ways:

Guests Entering Oogie Boogie Bash after 3:00 PM

Park guests who enter Disney’s California Adventure after 3:00 PM will be guided by cast members to specific entrances. Once you enter the turnstile a cast member will give you  a bracelet allowing you to remain in the park after 6:00 PM.

Guests Who Spent the Entire Day at Disneyland

If you plan to spend the entire day at the Disney’s California Adventure you will not have to walk to the entrance of the park for a wristband. Simply ask a cast member for the nearest wristband station throughout the park.

2023 Oogie Boogie Bash Dinning Packages

Guests can enjoy their choice of two amazing Disney Halloween dinning packages if they would like. The coolest thing about both is they provide reserved viewing of The Frightfully Fun Parade.

What are the dinning packages at Oogie Boogie Bash?

  • Wine Country Trattoria Oogie Boogie Bash
  • Sonoma Terrace Oogie Boogie Bash Dessert Party

The Wine Country Trattoria Oogie Boogie Bash is a three course meal which includes a starter, entree and of course dessert. This special dinning package also includes an Oogie Boogie popocorn bucket for the kids! One of the things we love most about this event is guests will actually dine between the hours of 3-6 PM, and then have a reserved section to view the parade. We find this to be a great option for guests who want to enjoy a special meal however they don’t want to waste anytime during the actual party. We wish Walt Disney World had something like this!

The Sonoma Terrace Oogie Boogie Bash Dessert party allows guests to enjoy amazing Halloween desserts as well as two beverages and free water. Just like the first Oogie Boogie dinning package this also provides guests with reserved viewing of the nighttime parade.

Reservations for both Oogie Boogie Bash dinning packages can be made up to 60 days in advance and we do recommend to take make them as early as possible as they do sell out!
