    Hello-I purchased my tickets for october 22 2023, and I read something about having to leave at 6pm from Disneyland? Is that the case? I may reconsider the long trip if we have to leave the park at 6 :( we’re taking my niece there, she’s 2, her 1st time

    Hello again, Lisa!

    Welcome back to planDisney and we're so happy to see that you're planning another fabulous trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, this time with your precious niece! The first time we took our daughter was when she was two years old as well, and it was so magical to see her wide-eyed wonder as we took her around the Parks.

    What you're likely reading about is Oogie Boogie Bash. This is a separately ticketed event that takes place in Disney California Adventure on select nights in September and October, one of those nights being October 22, 2023. Disney California Adventure will close to the general public at 6 p.m. but Disneyland Park will still remain open for its normal operating hours, which have not yet been published. So if you've purchased a Park Hopper Ticket, just hop on over to Disneyland Park for the rest of the evening to continue the fun! 

    Just because Oogie Boogie Bash is sold out, that doesn't mean that you can't join in on the Halloween fun! Both Parks are wonderfully decorated for the spooky season and the Haunted Mansion Holiday will be delighting guests over in New Orleans Square. For your little niece, a great way for her to have some special interactions with characters would be a character meal at Goofy's Kitchen! They're offering a special Halloween themed buffet meal for a limited time and reservations for your visit are just about to open. 

    Lisa, I hope that you are able to make the trip with your niece because Halloween Season is my favorite time of year to visit the Disneyland Resort! You'll be the cool aunt, like Aunt Cass from Big Hero 6. As always, feel free to write back again if you have any more questions because you're always welcome here at planDisney.

    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
