    This is my first trip to Disneyland and we were able to get Oogie Boogie Bash tickets for our trip! Are all rides open in DCA during the party? Any other tips for first timers? Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney Kari, from one Illinois resident to another!  

    How exciting that you were able to secure some frightfully good fun with Oogie Boogie Bash tickets!  This special event is popular for a reason, whether you're excited to see the Disney villains that we love to hate, or enjoy the seasonal treats and bites around the parks.  

    Most of the attractions at Disney California Adventure Park will be open for the party if they are also open during the day.  The wait times are usually shorter during Oogie Boogie Bash, so I'd definitely take advantage of that for some of the more popular attractions such as Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land.  Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! in Avengers Campus transforms into the exciting adventure Guardians of the Galaxy - Monsters After Dark during Halloween season as well, it's a can't miss if you're looking for thrills!  

    I do have a few other tips to share to help make your first trip to the Disneyland Resort and Oogie Boogie Bash a smooth one.  If you are a candy lover, then make sure to explore all of the treat trails throughout the event, and bring a bigger reusable bag or backpack from home to collect all of your candy.  You'll be amazed at all of the delicious treats you'll collect throughout the night!  

    Another tip is to arrive as soon as the "mix-in" time begins, which is usually at 3:00 PM where Guests already in the park mingle with Oogie Boogie Bash Guests.  I also highly suggest eating dinner or a snack before the party officially begins at 6:00 PM so you can spend your first few hours riding your favorite attractions or getting in line to meet your favorite seasonal characters.  The lines can get long for the more popular characters such as Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, and Clarabelle Cow dressed up as the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus, so I'd get in line early if that is a priority for you!

    I hope you have a spooktacular time during your first trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth" Kari!  If we can help answer any other questions before or after your trip, please do not hesitate to come back and ask!

    Have a magical day!
