This has been a difficult week for children and adults who never really grew up. Tickets for Disneyland’s Oogie Boogie Bash are completely sold out. With 25 different parties over a two-month span, Disney fans were quick to buy out every date available, despite delays and technical issues with the sale. Of course, while the tickets are no longer for sale directly from Disney, many resellers have offered their tickets up for sale for just a little more than Disney was asking. While fans may not be happy about the prices, that hasn’t stopped them from paying.

What is the Disneyland Oogie Boogie Bash?

Well, in short, it’s the ultimate event for a Disneyland fan that loves Halloween. Through September 5 to October 31, a series of parties are held at the park after dark. Attendees are treated to Halloween-themed food and treats, a variety of special events, and a parade.

All the classic characters will be there as well, but wearing their Halloween costumes. The park is decorated with spiderwebs and festive skulls, and the various rides all have a unique spin for the season. All together, it’s fun twist on Disneyland.

The first Oogie Boogie Bash was in 2019, although it was preceded by Mickey’s Halloween Party, which had been a tradition since 2005. The pandemic obviously complicated things for Disney and the parks at large, and 2020’s Oogie Boogie Bash was canceled, while 2021’s was scaled down a bit for safety concerns.

Since then, the Disneyland Oogie Boogie Bash has grown in size and popularity, and 2023’s event is looking to be quite packed indeed.

Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets VS Regular Admission

While all of the Oogie Boogie Bashes are held at Disneyland during normal days of operation, they are a semi-exclusive event. To attend an Oogie Boogie Bash, you’d need buy a ticket specifically for the event; regular Disneyland tickets do not get you access to the party.

Part of the appeal of the Oogie Boogie Bash event is the exclusivity. Fewer guests admitted means shorter lines for rides and a less packed park. It makes for a better experience for all involved, but also means tickets are in limited supply and quite valuable.

There are a total of 25 different dates for Oogie Boogie Bashes. The first will be held on September 5, with the rest taking place 2-4 days after the last.

All Oogie Boogie Bashes start at 6 P.M. Additionally, prices for tickets rise as the season goes on. September tickets started at $130, while they soll for around $160 through October. Obviously, October 31 is the most desired date, and tickets for the Halloween Oogie Boogie Bash sold for $189.

How to get Oogie Boogie Bash tickets

Because of the exclusivity of the event, tickets for the various Oogie Boogie Bash dates sold out quickly. The first and last dates sold out the fastest, and by July 12 all of the dates had sold out.

Speaking of dates, it’s worth mentioning there was a bit of a snafu during the sale. Oogie Boogie Bash tickets were first sold on June 27 exclusively to Disneyland Season Pass holders, with the public sale planned for June 29.

Instead, intense traffic caused technical issues on Disney’s website, and the public sale was canceled. This was followed up by an announcement to expect the public sale some time in July. Naturally, people were annoyed.

Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets Sold Out

That sale would take place on July 11. While it wasn’t as bad as the first, it didn’t quite go off without a hitch. Like before, the second Oogie Boogie Bash public sale used a queue system, and buyers reported a wide range of issues, from page refresh problems, multiple-hour long queue times, and errors when trying to purchase tickets. By the end of the day, all of the dates had sold out, and many Disney fans were left without a ticket.

Fortunately for them, a group of heroes would step in to save the day. Yes, ticket resellers, loved and respected by all, were there to solve this problem.

Reselling Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets

While the various Disney parks have different policies when it comes to reselling tickets, Disneyland’s is quite lenient and reseller-friendly.

The official Disneyland policy is that ticket reselling or trading for commercial purposes is not allowed, but they put absolutely zero effort into stopping it. When you buy a Disneyland ticket, you are not required to provide a name or any other identifying information for the ticket. Instead, you simply need to present the ticket at the gate, where your photo will be taken and assigned to the ticket.

They work sort of like bearer’s bonds; whoever’s holding the ticket is the owner, no verification required. Once purchased, the tickets can be freely transferred, given away, or sold at whatever price the owner wants. It’s only once you actually check in at the gate that the tickets have your name put on them.

Oogie Boogie Bash Reseller Policy

Taken directly from Disney customer support

Naturally, this is quite a boon for resellers. Ticket platforms have recently taken steps to try and cut down on the practice by requiring ticketholders to show proof of purchase or ID. Even other Disney locations require some form of ID, it’s just Disneyland that follows this policy.

Following the complete sell-out of all Oogie Boogie Bash dates, resellers have taken to listing them for much more than they paid. On average, an Oogie Boogie Bash ticket resells for around $250 per ticket, twice what they cost from Disney.

Of course, the later dates are even more popular. Parties closer to Halloween were the dates that sold out the fastest during the pre-sale, and these are also trading for the highest. Halloween Oogie Boogie Bash tickets have resold for $450 for a single ticket.

Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets for Sale

Buyers were limited to eight tickets maximum while purchasing directly from the Disneyland website, which was another advantage for resellers looking to stock up. Just add it to the list.

All together, Disneyland’s Oogie Boogie Bash was an excellent opportunity for resellers, as it has been in the past. Tickets are increasingly becoming more difficult to resell. Branching out into different opportunities like the Oogie Boogie Bash is a great way to keep profiting from flipping tickets. Unlike other events or platforms, there are almost no hurdles or verification methods to try and cut into your profits. Just buy it, list it, and sell it.
