Disneyland Resort cast members were treated to a special “snEEK peek” of Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party on Sept. 7, exploring eight treat trails featuring Disney Villains — including the infamous bag of bugs himself — and enjoying the Frightfully Fun Parade and Villains Grove. The special ticketed, sold-out event at Disney California Adventure Park opened to guests on Sept. 9, and runs on select nights through Oct. 31.
This year, the bash includes new trails featuring Agatha Harkness from “WandaVision” in Avengers Campus, Sid from “Toy Story” at Pixar Pier and Cruella de Vil at Hollywood Backlot.
“This event is very spooky — it’s magical,” said Tomorrowland Attractions cast member Jenna Withers. “It’s a wonderful time of the year!”
Cast members enjoyed performances of “Mickey’s Trick & Treat,” a live show with Mickey Mouse and friends, and the Frightfully Fun Parade, featuring Jack Skellington, Sally and everyone’s favorite villains. For those brave souls ready for a bewitching journey, Villains Grove provided the opportunity to explore the worlds of Disney Villains through a transformed Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.
“Villains Grove is definitely my favorite area,” said Colton Tracey, Tomorrowland Attractions. “I love the Alice in Wonderland section with the roses that light up and change colors.”
Cast in need of an extra scare had a screaming good time on Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark, and enjoyed Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree and Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween in Radiator Screams – Cars Land with a twisted seasonal makeover.
“It’s very rewarding to be here!” Jenna said. “It’s a cool perk to come out after hours, hang out with everyone, see friends and relax.”
