Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party is all set to return to Disney’s California Adventure for the fall of 2021. After seasonal events were put on hold due to the pandemic last year, there was a lot of speculation that events like Oogie Boogie Bash might not return until 2022.
Fans of the party spent months waiting on news of the event’s potential return on Twitter, and have been especially excited by the announcement that it’s back alongside other Halloween Disney events!

With the official return of Oogie Boogie Bash in 2021, we’ve got the important details you need to know all in one place!
The Need to Knows
Oogie Boogie Bash will take place on select nights from September 9 to October 31, 2021 for a total of 25 nights.
The party itself will run from 6 – 11 p.m. on the select nights of the event. Since it is a separate ticket event, ticket holders will be able to arrive before the start of the event at 3 p.m. and enjoy DCA ahead of time during the theme park mix-in.
The general admission tickets will be available to purchase online on July 13, 2021 and will start at $114. Note: the ticket price does not include parking fees.
Compared to prices in the past for Oogie Boogie Bash, tickets typically ranged in price from $100 up to $145. Price has also depended on what day of the event you’re looking at tickets for!
And one last big need to know for the party: there is no theme park reservation needed for the park mix-in or for the party itself.
A Peek At Similarities
So with the big questions answered, let’s take a quick look at the similarities between Oogie Boogie Bash 2021 and the event from previous years.
As usual, Halloween decor, music, and special character sightings will be available during the party. And some of the big draws for the seasonal event are also back! These include:
Treat Trails: What’s a Halloween party without candy? The Treat Trails at the party are back again featuring all kinds of sweet treats and villain sightings.
Frightfully Fun Parade: A staple at Walt Disney World that moved to DCA for the first time in 2019, this parade features the Headless Horseman, Haunted Mansion ballroom dancers, and more spooky sights!
Villains Grove: The Redwood Creek Challenge Trail will see a special transformation that features Disney villains like Ursula and Scar in unique scenes for the party.
Mickey’s Trick and Treat: This live show is back again featuring Mickey and others along with dancing, candy, and more spooky happenings.
The one standout event that’s not featured in the Oogie Boogie Bash lineup this year is the DescenDance, a Descendants themed dance.
But hey, don’t forget that all guests are able to dress up for the party as well! Costume masks can’t be worn by anyone over the age of 14. To check out Disneyland’s full costume guidelines, see them here.
