Cult Fans Of ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ Are About To Get The Disney Dream With This New Halloween Gift
With the school season back into full swing, summer is almost officially over. It’s time to focus on the next big event on our calendars: Halloween. We’re talking ghosts and ghouls, candy and costumes and all that is creepy and kooky. It really is one of the most fun times of the year and the unofficial start of the Fall/Winter holiday season. Halloween is a party in its own right but one of the biggest names in entertainment is looking to add to the holiday’s mischievous mayhem.
This year, Disneyland is hosting its new Oogie Boogie Bash — a Halloween party inspired by Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
According to Disneyland’s website, the event will be available for a limited time on select nights in September to October 2019 at Disney California Adventure park.

The event is only at the Cali location and takes the place of the park’s previous Mickey’s Halloween Party. The Oogie Boogie Bash is described as a family-friendly, after-hours costume party that is complete with appearances from select Disney villains. Oogie Boogie himself will be there to act as the “monster of scare-e-monies” for the party.
Guests will be able to trick-or-treat and watch a villainous parade spook its way through the park. There will also be immersive Treat Trails where guests can collect treasures as they enjoy music, themed decor and the appearance of a villain or two. If you are looking to oogie boogie on down, you can join the DescenDance party and dance along to your favorite Disney’s “Descendants” songs. There will also be Halloween themed meet and greets with Mickey, Goofy, and all your favorite Disney pals.
The world of Disney California Adventure Park is also getting a spooky overhaul to meet the party’s scary theme.
The park’s Carthay Circle’s Bell Tower will be getting a batty makeover just for this event. Clouds of bats will coil around the tower and transform the building into a landmark perfectly fit for the new Halloween Town. Disney California Adventure park will also see its Redwood Creek Challenge Trail transformed for the Oogie Boogie Bash. The interactive Cliff Hanger Traverse Rock Climb and complete play yard will be bathed in spooky lights, sound, and effects to give the attraction a totally haunted feel.
There will also be a major nightly event at the park’s Paradise Bay.
The park’s nightly World of Color event will get an exclusive villain-themed upgrade. Entitled “Villainous!” the Oogie Boogie Bash exclusive will feature lights, lasers, and special effects galore along with appearances by the scariest villains the House of Mouse has created. The show is all new and promises to be a magical sight for guests of all ages.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, you’ll also be able to take the Oogie Boogie fun home with you thanks to their exclusive souvenirs.
The park will offer limited Oogie Boogie Bash apparel for both adults and children including tee shirts, long-sleeved shirts, pullovers and hoodies. There’s also a specially designed Mouse Ear headband to fit the eerie theme of the party. Four limited-edition pins and a light up Oogie Boogie shaped sipper cup is also among the merchandise you can collect.
Don’t forget about the party’s food! Is your stomach feeling a bit haunted by hunger? Fill it with these cool treats. Be sure to grab the new Oogie Boogie-inspired sweet funnel cake fries or the party’s refreshing concoction with glowing cubes. It’s so eerie that it seems to have been made in a science laboratory.
Of course, Twitter is as excited about this event as we are.
The Oogie Boogie Bash starts in a little over a month and we are counting down the days until we can join all the spooky magical fun. We totally feel the energy of this GIF because we are feeling amped up.
All this spooky talk has us ready to get our Halloween on.
