    Hi- I'm staying at the Grand Californian on Oct 28/29. I heard that the hotel holds a block of Oogie Boogie tickets for hotel guests and starts to sell them at 6:30am that morning. Has anyone had any experience getting tickets this way?

    Boo to you, Jennae!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa! The magnificent theming that takes me straight into the "elegant" Redwoods is only surpassed by the direct access to Disney's California Adventure from the hotel! I know you are going to have a fang-tastic stay, and it will be even more spook-tacular if we can get you into Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party!

    I chatted with my dEAR friends Tony & Kristin (as they are THE experts on everything Disneyland), and they said that you are correct. At times, a certain amount of tickets for the party are held for on-site hotel Guests and released the day of the party. They sell out quickly, and there is no guarantee that they will do this on the day in question. We suggest you call the Ticket Reservation number at (714) 781-4636 as sometimes there are tickets available by phone even when they are sold out online. Once again, not guaranteed!

    If you do score those frightfully-delightful tickets, make sure to join the magical mayhem at the DescenDANCE Party, where you can boogie down with other rockin' ghouls! On your way, hit the Villains Grove, a hauntingly boo-tiful world of magic! Jennae, no worries, if you don't get tickets to the fanciful fest, there is a cornucopia of ways to enjoy Halloween at the Resort. I loved the Main Street Pumpkin Festival as a kid, and Haunted Mansion Holiday is hands-down one of the most divine attractions around!

    Jennae, fly back on by with any more questions. I wish you a wicked good time!
