We’re not sure what’s more excited: an all-new Halloween party coming to Disney California Adventure, or all of the exciting new experiences that come with it! Disney just revealed some frightfully fun new details about what we can expect at Oogie Boogie Bash when it debuts this fall, so get ready because it looks like this will be the most exciting Disney Halloween party we’ve experienced yet.
The first-ever Oogie Boogie Bash will be held at Disney California Adventure (unlike the previous Mickey’s Halloween Party, which was held at Disneyland). Given the amount of amazing décor and the immersive atmosphere the Imagineers have created at Disney California Adventure for the Halloween season over the past few years, we can’t wait to see what they have in store for guests attending Oogie Boogie Bash. But one of the most amazing things about the party being held at Disney California Adventure is the spectacular nighttime entertainment we’ll get to experience there, including an all-new version of World of Color!
If you’re a total Disney fan, you probably agree when we say that World of Color is one of the most amazing nighttime entertainment shows at a Disney park. So when Disney revealed new details about the Halloween version of World of Color we’ll get to see at Oogie Boogie Bash, we couldn’t wait to share it with you. This all-new show is called Villainous! and can only be seen on select nights during Oogie Boogie Bash. Here’s the show’s official synopsis, according to Disney:
The new “World of Color” show exclusive to Oogie Boogie Bash tells the twisted tale of a young girl (and all-new character) named Shelley Marie. In “Villainous!,” Shelley has a decision to make about her Halloween costume for this year, and finds herself wondering if she could really be as strong and unique as some of her favorite Disney villains, including The Queen, Ursula, Dr Facilier, Hades, Jafar and Maleficent. This twisted tale carries Shelley on an unforgettable journey through fountains, lights, lasers, projections and special effects. “Villainous!” shows guests that, deep down, there’s a little villain in all of us.
We can’t wait to see this haunting new version of one of the best nighttime entertainment offerings at Disneyland Resort, but we’re also so excited for everything else we can expect at Oogie Boogie Bash, including treat trails done with a Tim Burton flair and an epic dance party featuring the “Descendants” crew! Here’s some more information that Disney shared about what else we can expect at the new Halloween event:
- Redwood Creek Challenge Trail – The fun-filled trail we know and love will be transformed into a wondrous and ethereal world of Disney villains Disney will add dreamlike lighting, T projections, sounds and special effects in order to make this a frightful but fun space. Don’t worry, though, because like every Disney Halloween event, it’s not scary but fun!
- Immersive Treat Trails – We love the incorporation of Tim Burton’s characters into the Disney parties, and when you walk through the new, wonderfully wicked treat trails throughout the park, you may encounter the Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” or even Oogie Boogie himself! Additional treat trails will feature oversized cauldrons full of treats for all guests to enjoy.
- DescenDANCE Party – If you’re a “Descendants” fan, you won’t want to miss this. In the Hollywood Land Backlot, a spell is cast, summoning the greatest dance crew from the Isle of the Lost will host a dance party set to the biggest hit songs from all three “Descendants” movies. The original “Villain Kids” might even crash the party through magic mirrors.
