2019 Disneyland Halloween Party Dates Announced

2019 Disneyland Halloween Party Dates Announced

Disneyland Halloween Party Moves to DCA

The move is finally being made! This years Disneyland Resort Halloween Party will be held completely in California Disney Adventure with some all new surprises and some returning ones as well. Party favorites such as the Frightfully Fun Parade, trick or treat trails will also include some fun new character meet and greets along with a dance party! This year will not be a mix in between the parks as the ticketed event will be held completely in DCA. Disneyland will still offer it’s Haunted Mansion Holiday, Main Street Pumpkins and Characters of the season. Get all the details below, dates when tickets go on sale to AP’s as well as the public!


Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party at Disney California Adventure will add to the fun of Halloween Time to the Disneyland Resort. The goolish fun begins September 6th. Choose from 20 dates between Sept. 17th through Oct. 31, 2019 to attend the special tickets event. As always I encourage you to purchase your tickets as soon as possible as this event always sells out!

Highlights of the new separate-ticket event include:

  • “Villainous!” – The new “World of Color” show weaves a Halloween tale about a young girl named Shelley Marie. This twisted tale carries Shelley on an unforgettable journey, exploring the villainous side of Disney characters through fountains, lights, lasers, projections and special effects. “Villainous!” shows that, deep down, there’s a little villain in all of us.

  • Redwood Creek Challenge Trail – Transformed into a wondrous and ethereal world of Disney villains unlike anything seen before, Redwood Creek will be tricked out in a dreamlike environment. This new experience unfolds in a series of scenes, each creating a hauntingly beautiful dream-space of color, sound, light and shadows, as stories emerge from the darkest night to create an enchanting world.

  • Immersive Treat Trails – Enjoy trick-or-treating at the new, wonderfully wicked treat trails throughout the park. Iconic characters such as Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” or even Oogie Boogie himself will surprise and delight. Additional treat trails will feature oversized cauldrons full of treats for all guests to enjoy.

  • DescenDance – A new pulsing party in the Backlot area of Hollywood Land is inspired by the popular “Descendants” franchise from the Disney Channel. As the DescenDance begins, a spell is cast, summoning the greatest dance crew from the Isle of the Lost to throw down and lead everyone in moves that are set to the biggest hit songs from the “Descendants” films. 

  • “Frightfully Fun Parade” – The guest-favorite parade is coming to Disney California Adventure park for the first time! The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow starts the procession, followed by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse who lead the cavalcade of characters and many mischievous Disney villains who are ready to stir up some trouble along the parade route.

  • Mickey’s Trick and Treat show – Perfect for young guests, this new, interactive stage production invites kids of all ages to join Mickey Mouse and his pals as they throw a one-of-a-kind Halloween party! Enjoy dancing, not-so-frightening scary-tales, and candy at the Disney Theater in Hollywood Land.

  • Character encounters – Meet beloved Disney characters – and villains, too. You may be surprised at who you discover at this Halloween party, ready for photos and greetings!
