SOLD OUT! Oogie Boogie Bash 2024 – And Why It’s Not a Big Deal

That’s all folks! Oogie Boogie Bash is officially sold out for 2024 at Disneyland. Dates for the annual Halloween party were first announced back in May, and that came with a big surprise. The event would begin in August, earlier than ever before.

But it wasn’t until a full month later that we would learn when tickets would go on sale. Oogie Boogie Bash ticket sales have earned a reputation in previous years for being unbearable. Potential guests could be stuck in the queue for hours. This year was different.

Inspire Magic Keyholders had first access to purchase tickets during an initial pre-sale on June 23rd. We purchased our tickets during this time, and it was easier than ever. A second pre-sale opened June 26th for all Keyholders, and on June 27 sales opened to the general public.

Despite the troublesome ticketing process, Oogie Boogie Bash is notorious for selling out in a matter of hours. It was shocking when that didn’t happen this year. In fact, it took 11 full days for all party dates to completely sell out.

So, why did it take so long this time?

There is, of course, an economical aspect to this all. Inflation is high, and prices for the event are higher than ever. Over $200 per person on select nights. And experiences exclusive to the party are diminishing.

When Oogie Boogie Bash first debuted in 2019, we had a stage show and a seasonal World of Color overlay called Villainous, which was quietly discontinued. And Mickey’s Trick and Treat show has been converted to daytime entertainment.

In fact, at this point, the only unique experiences at the party are the parade and character-included trick-or-treat trails. The good news is that visiting Disneyland and California Adventure as a daytime guest is better than ever.

The best Halloweentime offerings are available daily in both parks. From exclusive nighttime fireworks to expansive ride overlays and exciting character meet and greets. And all of it is included with a regular park ticket.
