Every year, Disney Parks attendees delight in seeing the new changes in the scenery at the Disneyland Resort around Halloween, from the giant Mickey Mouse pumpkin at Main Street, U.S.A., to Mickey and his pals dressed in Halloween costumes, to the décor at the Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction. But one of the main festivities Guests look forward to the most is Oogie Boogie Bash, a special ticketed night-time event at Disney California Adventure Park, where Guests can dress up in costumes, watch a parade, go trick-or-treating, and even find some fan-favorite villains around the Park.

But how often do Guests get to go behind the scenes to learn how experiences like this are made? This weekend, fans have an opportunity to do just that with “An Oogie Boogie Afternoon.”
