    Hello, I already purchased the tickets from the Disney website and i should have the theme park reservation for that days, but I would like to ask if a theme park reservation is also needed to enter the theme park during the Oogie Boogie Bash event?

    Hello there!  Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your great question!

    If you already have your Oogie Boogie Bash tickets, then you would not need a theme park reservation if you are just planning on attending the event that day.  You can begin entering Disney California Adventure Park at 3:00 PM.  The frightfully good fun officially begins at 6:00 PM, so you will have several hours to enjoy attractions and my recommendation is to grab dinner before 6:00 PM so you can fully enjoy the party without having to worry about sitting down for a meal!  Flo's V8 Cafe as well as Pym Test Kitchen are some of our favorites to enjoy!

    However, if you do not have Oogie Boogie Bash tickets, and you would like to visit Disney California Adventure Park on a day where the event is taking place, then you would need a valid theme park ticket and theme park reservation.  The park will also close early on Oogie Boogie Bash dates at 6:00 PM, so I'd recommend either upgrading your ticket to a Park Hopper ticket so you could enjoy Disneyland Park the remainder of the night, or just making your theme park reservation for Disneyland Park on that day.  

    A tip to share for Oogie Boogie Bash is to bring your own trick-or-treat bag!  If you're going to explore the many treat trails and collect all sorts of goodies, you will want to bring a bigger bag to collect your treats to take home.  Another tip is to explore Villains Grove in Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, it's a visually stunning display of lights and sounds that you will not want to miss.  

    I hope this information is helpful for your upcoming trip!  If we can help with any other questions, please come back and ask!

    Have a magical day,
