Disneyland Resort
Things to Do if You Don't Have Oogie Boogie Bash Party Tickets
August 25, 2023

Spooky overlays, "boo"tiful decor and Oogie Boogie Bash are just a few of the things offered during Halloween Time at Disneyland. If you are not attending the separately ticketed party, don't worry! We've compiled everything you can do if you don't have Oogie Boogie Bash tickets.

This is Halloween, this is Halloween, everybody scream! You'll be screaming from delight, not fright, when you visit the Disneyland Resort from September through October 31st. Ride overlays, experience seasonal decor and find new food offerings all during this spooky time of year.

On top of that, California Adventure Park closes early on select nights for Oogie Boogie Bash, where trick-or-treating and exclusive entertainment occur.

Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets Sold Out

All 2023 Oogie Boogie Bash dates have sold out. If you weren't able to get them before that happened or didn't want to spend the extra money, don't worry. You can still have a great time without attending! How? We have some ideas, both within Disney California Adventure and outside of the parks.

Just remember that if you choose to have your own party during the evenings at Disneyland, you need to have a Park Hopper ticket or already be in that park for the day with a 1-Park per Day ticket. Now, let's look at all the fun you can have even if you don't have Oogie Boogie Bash tickets!

California Adventure Halloween Highlights

There’s so much Halloween fun during the day at California Adventure. And even if you hop to Disneyland or simply spend a shorter day there, we don’t want you to miss out!

1. Explore Radiator Screams

Cars Land in Disney California Adventure is all decked out for the scary season. Radiator Springs has become Radiator Screams and is a sight you don't want to miss. From traffic cone jack-o-lanterns to spidery touches, the town is ready for Halloween. With so many frightfully fun changes, you could spend your entire day exploring here.

We particularly love the Halloween musical overlays to Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters as “Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween” and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree as “Mater's Graveyard JamBOOree.”

2. See Monsters After Dark

Just outside Cars Land in Avengers Campus, you can’t forget to ride Guardians of the Galaxy - Monsters After Dark. The ride overlay is unique as it only occurs at night, while the normal ride sequence takes place during the day. Disney Genie+ selections begin to be distributed for the after dark version at 3:00 pm each day. You'll want to grab them quickly as they usually run out within the first 20 minutes

3. Try Ghoulishly Delightful Halloween Time Treats

You can find a variety of Halloween Time treats throughout Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney.

If you're looking for something sweet, look for seasonal Halloween Time churros and spooky macarons, candy apples and more. You'll also find savory and filling Halloween food throughout the resort at all your favorite dining locations. Taste testing all the delicious seasonal treats is one of our favorite ways to spend an evening if you don't have Oogie Boogie Bash tickets.

4. Meet Characters in their Halloween Costumes

In 2023, Mickey and friends show up to Disneyland in new costumes and we can’t wait to see them in person. At both parks you'll be able to find characters dressed up for Halloween Time, along with a PhotoPass photographer nearby to snap your photos.

While in Radiator Screams, you'll be treated to Mater, Lightning McQueen, Red the Fire Truck and more dressed in their frightful best. On Buena Vista Street, you can find Goofy, Minnie, Mickey and Daisy in ghoulish garb. Make sure to have your camera ready for a spooky spotlight!

5. World of Color

During Halloween Time, World of Color only shows on non-party nights. This is something you're going to want to see during your Disneyland vacation at some point! We recommend scheduling time to see World of Color night when you have a full day in Disney California Adventure Park, or hopping over one evening from Disneyland. If you don't do a World of Color dining package, you'll still need to secure a spot in the Virtual Queue for the night's show.

Disneyland Halloween Highlights

To give you just an idea of how much there is to do during Halloween Time, lets continue our list over at Disneyland Park of things to do all without going to Oogie Boogie Bash.

6. Ride Halloween Attractions

We already mentioned Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween and Mater's Graveyard JamBOOree which are fun for the whole family and perfect to add to your to-do list.

But one huge and iconic highlight of Halloween Time is Haunted Mansion Holiday which runs from September through early January. Don’t miss it!

7. Be Dazzled by Magic Happens Parade

Having your own party in Disneyland is the perfect opportunity to watch the Magic Happens Parade. With exciting floats, music, and character interaction, it will be sure to take your breath away. You'll want to line up early or book a dining package that includes seating to make sure you get the best view.

8. Try a New Restaurant at Disneyland

Speaking of dining packages, why not try a new restaurant if you don't have Oogie Boogie Bash tickets? Disneyland has so many places to eat and new menus seasonally.. For a fancier meal, try Blue Bayou located inside Pirates of the Caribbean.

Or, if you're looking for something totally new try Tiana’s Palace opening in early September in New Orleans Square. Many of the restaurants are even offering specialty Halloween menu items just for the season. Deciding on trying something new won't be hard, but deciding which restaurant to try may be!

9. Dine with Halloween Characters at Goofy's Kitchen

This option is perfect if you don't have Oogie Boogie Bash tickets and still want a Halloween treat! New in 2023, Goofy's Kitchen is the only Character Dining experience that offers a Halloween option and is located in the Disneyland Hotel. No park admission is required to feast with Goofy and his friends. Reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance and are highly recommended.

10. Wander through Downtown Disney

Another option for those who don't want to spend a Halloween Party evening in the theme parks is Downtown Disney. The district is still part of the Disneyland Resort, so you won't feel like you've left the magic. Shopping, entertainment and dining are all offered throughout Downtown Disney, including a giant World of Disney store.

You can also join in on Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit and earn a prize at the end. You won't have a hard time spending a few hours wandering through the magic here!

11. Watch Halloween Screams

Halloween Screams is a wicked display and treat for everyone! It runs nightly with an eerie greeting from your “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington and his ghostly dog Zero. As Jack and Zero fade into the night leaving you to enjoy what’s to come, settle in and embrace the jump-worthy collision of sights and sounds—soaring flames, projections of rising ghosts and classic Disney villains like Maleficent and Ursula the Sea Witch—all set to a medley of Halloween-inspired songs.

Plus, on select nights, you’ll also be able to watch sparkling fireworks possess the sky.

12. Nighttime Halloween Swims

Lastly, you can always spend an evening at your hotel if you don't have Oogie Boogie Bash tickets. Your family will probably even enjoy the chance to take a break and rest their feet while they splash around. If you need help deciding on a hotel with the best pool, make sure to give us a call or even ask below.

We even partner with hotels that have their own water play areas, like the Courtyard Anaheim Theme Park Entrance, Howard Johnson and more. Plus, some area hotels show movies each night poolside like Cambria Hotel & Suites.
