Getting Oogie Boogie Bash tickets was an adventure. 

Oogie Boogie

Disneyland Resort’s Oogie Boogie Bash — the resort’s premier Halloween event — begins on August 25th this year and transforms Disneyland into a spooky party. Tickets went on sale for some Magic Key holders today (June 25th), but getting them was not a smooth process! Several dates SOLD OUT incredibly quickly.

Ticket sales for the 2024 Oogie Boogie Bash are staggered, with Inspire Magic Key holders having access to tickets on June 25th, other Magic Key holders on June 26th, and finally the general public on June 27th. In theory, that should have made the ticket-buying practice easy. In reality, it was a bit of a roller coaster. 

We logged on right on time on June 25th…only to encounter Disney’s system apparently running late. When we finally got in, we were given an estimated wait time queue. Pretty standard so far. However, it was once that ended that things began to get wonky. 

The waiting is the hardest part…

Tickets for certain party nights were selling out very quickly, with October 13th being the first to show as sold out. Meanwhile, we were trying for opening night — August 25th — which was still showing tickets available but wasn’t allowing us to select them. After securing tickets for August 27th, we decided to experiment a bit and refresh the page. Now, August 25th, as well as September 15th, 22nd, 6th, and 12th were registering as sold out. 

The status of dates was fluctuating with every refresh

However, after ANOTHER refresh, Sept 15th and 22nd were once again showing tickets available, but now September 29th, Oct 3rd, 6th, 10th, 13th, and 17th were all showing as sold out.

Ooogie Boogie Dates

The moral of the story? If you’re trying for Oogie Boogie Bash tickets, keep refreshing as there definitely seem to be some bugs in Disney’s system.

Here’s to hoping they’re worked out before the next two sales over the next few days.

It’s possible that Disney has reserved just a certain portion of all available tickets for the first night (and other nights) for Magic Key holders, so the general public will still have a chance to buy tickets for those dates when they go on sale on June 27th. We’ll be watching for more updates over the next couple of days!
