Transformation central! Halloween time at Disney Parks has become a favorite for many, my family included! Every year in October, we plan a week-long vacation to Disneyland. This vacation has always included the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. That is until this year! When Oogie Boogie Bash took over at Disney’s California Adventure park and there is no going back. This special ticket event took all the fun and multiplied it by 10, making for an even more incredible experience. While I could go on forever about how awesome this event is, I have narrowed it down to the top 5 reasons it is the best.
#1. Immersive Treat Trails
This was by far the best change made to the Disney Halloween party and my favorite part. There were five different trails lead by some of Disney’s best villains: Dr. Facilier, The Mad Hatter, Maleficent, The Queen from Snow White, and of course Oogie Boogie. The Disney Imagineers went all out on these treat trails. From the music to the lights, the projections and decorations, these trails will make you feel completely transported.
Each trail begins with cast members handing out either candy or healthier treats. As you make your way along the trail, you will come to a stage where your villain awaits. Here is where you have the opportunity for personal interactions with each character. This made for an extra special memory for my son as he was stopped by The Mad Hatter and got to have a rather long conversation about his costume. This change to the Halloween party made for a much more special experience.
