Disneyland for Grown Ups and Adults

Halloween is for Adults Too! Here’s how to trick or treat in style…

The Halloween holiday season is as popular as Christmas.  Both parks are adorned with fantastic decorations and figures. Night lights and special effects will astonish you – can Jack Skellington be this much fun?! Read below for important tips and recommendations on how to enjoy Halloween at the parks.

Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Party – An Absolute Must

This the the absolute best way to go for Halloween.  Restricted ticket sales keep crowds to a minimum and the special features/events are worth every penny of the ticket price.  You don’t have to dress up, most adults just wear halloween t-shirts and/or hats.  Try to stay until park closing to take full advantage of short waits, trick or treating, and amazing spooky park effects.

If you can’t make the Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Party:

Crowd “Sweet Spots”

The parks are always crowded during Halloween, but some of the best times to visit are:

  • The first week of the season during the week
  • Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday when there isn’t a Mickey’s Halloween Party,
  • Halloween Day (crowds are lighter until Halloween Party guests arrive)

If you can’t attend the Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Party, but have to visit on a Halloween Party night…

California Adventure closes early to regular guests on Halloween Party nights – so get your rides/events done early. Halloween Party guests start arriving late afternoon – 4 PM – so expect an increase in crowds and plan accordingly.

On nights of the Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Party event:
    • All sit down restaurants (including Downtown Disney) fill quickly and early. Reservations are STRONGLY recommended.
    • Afternoon/night parking can get very busy (Halloween Party guests are arriving.) Try to park early.
    • Be aware that California Adventure Park can get crazy crowded from 4 PM until the party at 7 PM (when park will be closed to all party guests only).
