Disney California Adventure is celebrating Halloween this year with the return of Oogie Boogie Bash!

The spooky event will last a 5 hours (two more than Disney World’s BOO Bash) with tickets starting at $114. And, if you have plans to head to the event, you might want to get ready for a LONG wait now that ticket sales have opened up today!

It looks like the Oogie Boogie Bash is already a hit with fans ahead of the event’s September debut because the phone and online wait times have exceeded an hour!

As guests are able to both access the virtual queue or call Disneyland directly to purchase tickets, the wait continues to grow since this is the first day that reservations are available. There is a limited amount of availability in Disney California Adventure for the event, so you may want to keep that in mind if you plan on attending!

UPDATE: As of 4PM EST, we’ve still been stuck on the “more than an hour” screen. A new message popped up at 3:05PM warning guests of high demand.

UPDATE: After waiting for multiple hours, some of our team members were finally able to get through and purchase tickets! One of our team members waited over 4 hours just to get to the point where they could buy tickets.

This availability could change in the coming days though. If you’re interested in going to Oogie Boogie Bash, be sure to get your tickets soon.

While one of our team members was able to get through, another was still waiting and got the message below. Disney notes that they are “deliberately pulsing Guests through the system” and that wait times may be several hours or more. But, they note that they still have plenty of tickets available and plan to keep the system open throughout the night.

The Oogie Boogie Bash will be running on 25 select nights from September 9th through October 31st. Guests will be able to trick-or-treat, watch the Frightfully Fun Parade, and MORE during the event (and it sounds like a scary good time)! Of course, we’ll be sure to update you on all of Disneyland’s Halloween festivities soon. In the meantime, stay tuned with All Ears for the latest Disney entertainment and news!

  1. Took me 5 hours and I got up at 6 then realized that was too early to try hit you never know with Disney. Finally got into The Q at 8:55 am and waited there on 2 devices for 5 hours then it was smooth sailing after that. Golf my tickets for the day wanted and all was great!

  2. I got my tickets after 7.5 hours in the virtual queue. I was actually surprised it worked after all that time – I figured I was frozen somehow since it said “over an hour” for SEVEN hours! But then it started moving and everything went smoothly – I just had to babysit my phone all day!!

  3. What is wrong with the Oogie Boogie Bash que? Been on que since 8:58 am & it’s stuck on more than an hour wait. Others are getting error messages & no confirmation email. Is it fixed?

  4. I’m over 2 hours waiting online and I got in line before 9 am (PDT). Lots of people saying there are big issues with charging their credit cards multiple times and many of them not seeing their tickets show up. Sounds like a big mess so far.

  5. I’ve been “more than an hour” wait time since 9:03am!! It’s 10:52 now . Scared to touch the screen LOL
