According to KTLA 5 News, apart from eBay, other platforms like StubHub and Craigslist have also shown a multitude of tickets for sale.

Surprisingly, some of these resales on StubHub appear to contradict the platform’s policies, which may cause voided tickets for buyers.

Disney’s Response to Oogie Boogie Bash Resellers and Ticket Investigation

KTLA 5 News reached out to Disney to inquire about their policies regarding ticket reselling for events like the Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure Park. A Disney official provided a statement saying, “Teams at the resort have an established process for investigating resold tickets, the result of which may be voided tickets where appropriate.” This information can be found on Disneyland’s website in fine print.

Ticket Sale Challenges for Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure Park

This year’s Oogie Boogie Bash tickets went on sale to Magic Key Holders (annual pass holders) on June 27, 2023, and the general public on June 29, 2023. Unfortunately, technical glitches caused frustration among Disney fans, leading to a pause in ticket sales for maintenance. Sales resumed on July 11, 2023, and tickets were sold out by around 8:15 pm PT. The event’s popularity soared after last year’s reveal of characters like Ernesto De La Cruz from Pixar’s Coco and Bruno from Encanto. Bruno’s popularity even prompted Disney to create an official poncho available in the parks!

Limited Tickets for Disney’s After dark Event Oogie Boogie Bash and Upcoming Halloween Season 2023

Tickets for the Oogie Boogie Bash are limited, and with the Halloween season at Disney starting on September 1, 2023, and running through October, it’s no surprise they sell out quickly. There’s a possibility that Disney might consider starting the Halloween season in August, similar to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween at Walt Disney World.
