Halloween Time returns to the Disneyland Resort starting September 6thth with the brand-new Oogie Boogie Bash separate-ticket event at Disney California Adventure Park on twenty select nights from September 17th through October 31st. Guests will be tricked and treated via four exclusive entertainment offerings. In conjunction with a media preview of the event, new images and descriptions were just released to enchant and bewitch eager fans making a pilgrimage to Disney California Adventure during the season of the witch.

World of Color: Villainous!

A brand-new “World of Color” show called “Villainous!” will debut exclusively at Oogie Boogie Bash, introducing Guests to Shelley Marie, a young girl who discovers that each of us has a villainous side as she interacts with some of Disney’s most memorable baddies.

We got to see a preview of the spectacular that shows that there is “a little villain in all of us.” In addition to fantastic new lighting and effects, we are treated to new animation by the legendary Eric Goldberg. Through Shelley Marie, a play on Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, we enter the world of the Disney villains as she has to decide if she wants to be a princess or a villain for Halloween. Notably, this is the first time World of Color has been used to tell a linear story and one of the rare instances where an original character has been created for a nighttime spectacular.

Mickey’s Trick and Treat Show

Boogie down with your favorite Disney pals in their Halloween costumes at the Disney Theater in Hollywood Land during “Mickey’s Trick and Treat” show. This show appeals to all ages and includes group dances, kid-friendly Halloween stories, and candy treats!

DescenDANCE Party

Another dance opportunity presents itself in the streets of Hollywood Land where a dance crew will be summoned from the Isle of the Lost to lead Guests through dances from some of your favorite bops from the Disney Channel Descendants films. The interactive show will continue with a DJ spinning tunes once the VKs return to their realm. This iteration seems a bit more involved than the similarly named show the recently debuted at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. Here is get our video of the debut show.

Frightfully Fun Parade

The memorable Halloween-themed “Frightfully Fun Parade” moves to Disney California Adventure Park during Oogie Boogie Bash. All of your favorite moments return, including the Headless Horseman, Mickey and Minnie, Jack and Sally, Disney Villains, Haunted Mansion ballroom dancers, plus a new addition – the mischievous Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland.
