Now, if you have followed the channel for any length of time, you know that “spooky season” is our most favorite time of year, especially a certain one of us. So, August is here and “spooky season mania” has begun.

Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party, the new separate-ticket party in Disney California Adventure park, begins Sept. 17 for 20 select nights. You’ll be treated to an unforgettable night of Halloween fun packed with exclusive new experiences and entertainment, including the new “World of Color” show.

There is a tale behind the new nighttime festivities and even though Jenn could weave the tale much better, here goes. Oogie Boogie (from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas”) tells a Halloween tale about a young girl (and all-new character created by Disney animator Eric Goldberg) named Shelley Marie.  In “Villainous!,” Shelley has to decide about her Halloween costume for this year, and finds herself wondering if she could really be as strong and unique as some of her favorite Disney villains. This twisted tale carries Shelley on an unforgettable journey through devious encounters with The Queen, Ursula, Dr. Facilier, Hades, Jafar, Maleficent and more.

We cannot wait to be watching the villainous side of Disney characters through fountains, lights, lasers, projections and special effects. “Villainous!” shows you that, deep down, there’s a little villain in all of us.

Oogie Boogie Bash, which takes the place of Mickey’s Halloween Party, will feature other new experiences – including an interactive “Descendants”-inspired dance party, a stage show with Mickey Mouse, and a mysterious Disney villains walk-through experience.
