Halloween Time has finally come to Disneyland Resort and the villains have taken over the Parks. One villain will even celebrate the Spookiest Time of Year with his very own party. Oogie Boogie Bash will begin on September 9 and run on select days through October 31 and will immerse Guests in all things Disney Halloween can offer.

While there will be a ton of things for all Guests to do at Oogie Boogie Bash — including trick-or-treating, watching the Frightfully Fun Parade, and journeying through the absolutely incredible Villains Grove — there will be something extra special for Magic Key Holders. Magic Key Holders are those who have purchased Disneyland’s new version of Annual Passes, which are now called Magic Keys.

According to the Disneyland App Magic Key Portal, Magic Key Holders attending Oogie Boogie Bash will have access to a special Hocus Pocus photo opportunity!

According to the app, Magic Key Holders will be able to head over to the area near Silly Symphony Swings where the photo opportunity will be set up. All Guests have to do is show their Magic Key Pass — which is on their Disneyland app — and they will be allowed into the area. The app does not show what the photo opp will look like, but knowing Disney, it is sure to be great!

Instagram user Gothic Rosie shared a picture of the photo spot that Guests visiting California Adventure during the day could see as they walked past the swings area.


Could it be a Magic Key photo op for the Oogie Boogie Bash? Tonight is a Cast Preview at 10pm tonight so it will be interesting to see if this spot shows up in their images…keep an 👁 out!

Thanks to my Hidden Mickey for the snap📸🥰!

Oogie Boogie Bash began at Disney California Adventure Park in 2019 and replaced Mickey’s Halloween Party. Oogie Boogie Bash features a number of immersive treat trails where Guests can talk with some of their favorite Disney villains — with Cruella, Agatha Harkness from WandaVision, and Sid from Toy Story being added to this year’s lineup.

In order to take advantage of the Hocus Pocus photo opportunity, Magic Key Holders must have a valid ticket to Oogie Boogie Bash. If you are not currently a Magic Key Holder but would like to become one before you head to Oogie Boogie Bash, you can purchase a Magic Key through the Disneyland app or on the Disneyland website.
