    Hi! I’m wondering how Oogie’s halloween party i is different from Disney California Adventure Park in the regular night. In term of decoration and rides. Also will there be a firework show on Oct 17 and will all the rides in DCA be opened during the night?

    Boo to you, Supisara, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Here at the Moms Panel, we share in your excitement for the all-new Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party! I had the opportunity to attend a media preview of the event a few weeks ago, and I was blown away by the dreadfully delightful plans for this special Halloween Time event. Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort begins September 6, and runs through October 31, 2019. 

    At Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll find spooky surprises around every turn, starting at the Main Entrance. As you enter the turnstiles, look up to find Oogie Boogie himself atop the main-gate marquee. On Buena Vista Street, look out for the Headless Horseman statue, and the black bats surrounding Carthay Circle Theatre’s bell tower. One of my family’s favorite transformations inside Disney California Adventure Park is watching Cars Land turn into Radiator Screams! Haul-O-Ween in Radiator Screams is celebrated with frightfully-fun costumed cars, and Halloween overlays such as Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree and Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween. Another thrilling Halloween overlay you’ll want to check out is Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark, where your mission is to help Rocket rescue Groot from the Collector’s Fortress!

    As for Oogie Boogie Bash, most attractions should remain open, but several areas of the park will be altered for this epic Party, including Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, Disney Theater, and World of Color. I’m so excited to see Villains Grove come to life in Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, where the forest transforms into a magical grove of light and sound! In addition, Disney Theater will feature a family-friendly stage show including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck, in Mickey’s Trick & Treat at Oogie Boogie Bash. Lastly, I can’t wait for you to experience the brand-new, exclusive World of Color show, Villainous! I caught a sneak peek of it, and I was captivated by the storyline and music! 

    Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for additional information leading up to Oogie Boogie Bash. I'd also recommend checking the Entertainment Schedule around September 5 for your October 17 arrival date, since the calendar is usually updated about six weeks ahead. Halloween Screams with Fireworks will be featured at Disneyland Park on select nights only. 

    Wishing you many happy haunts, Supisara!
