    Can we have dinner at one of the restaurant at California Adventure on 9/12/23 at around 5:30pm? Or will we be kicked out at exactly at 6pm when Oogie boogie bash begins?

    Greetings, Nancy!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you found your way here with your question. I agree that a wonderful way to end a day at Disney California Adventure would be to enjoy a meal at one of the Park's many restaurants. Two of my favorites are Carthay Circle Restaurant and the Lamplight Lounge, where you can dine in elegance with Art Deco decorations or have a cocktail next to a bustling waterfront pier, respectively.

    I've attended Oogie Boogie Bash previously and I also spoke to a Cast Member server about your inquiry. The Park does close to the general public at 6 p.m. to make room for Oogie Boogie Bash, but there is a mix-in time from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. where Event attendees are allowed to enter the Park early.

    The Cast Member I spoke to reported that restaurants throughout the Park will still allow you to finish your meal but will likely close service to guests without wristbands at 6 p.m. Cast Members will be coming through and asking guests without wristbands to head towards the Park entrance and will only allow access to deeper sections of the Park to those with wristbands. 

    If you purchased a Park Hopper ticket, you can simply cross the Esplanade and continue the day's fun at Disneyland Park! Both Parks will be decorated for the Halloween Season and there are plenty of chances to get into the Trick or Treating mood!

    Nancy, I hope you have a magical time at the Happiest Place on Earth! Halloween is my favorite season to visit and I know you're going to love it! Feel free to reach out to us again if you have any other questions. Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
