Disney Is Throwing A New ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ Halloween Party

Pack your bags!

Disney’s theme parks always go all-out during the Halloween season, and this year will be no exception. Disneyland has announced that it will throw an epic Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure Park to celebrate the spookiest time of the year.

As you might recall, Oogie Boogie was the villainous burlap sack full of insects in the 1993 movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” and he will be a major presence in the park during Halloween.

Here’s what Oogie Boogie looks like, if you need a reminder:

This fall, on 20 select nights in September and October, Disney California Adventure Park will host a family-friendly Halloween party with an all-new “World of Color” light and water show called “Villainous!”, among many other spectacles.

The Oogie Boogie Bash replaces Mickey’s Halloween Party, which was held in previous years at neighboring Disneyland.

For the new event, visitors — both children and adults alike — are encouraged to show up in costume.
