Oogie Boogie Bash 2023 Ticket Sale Disrupted: Disney’s Technical Glitches Cause Frustration among fans

Disney fans (myself included) eagerly anticipated the start of the ticket sales for the highly coveted Disney After Dark event, Oogie Boogie Bash, held at Disney California Adventure Park. However, technical issues disrupted the process, leaving many of us disappointed and frustrated. 

In this article, I will provide you with an overview of the ticket sale chaos that happened today, share important updates from Disney representatives, and offer you valuable tips to increase your chances of securing Oogie Boogie Bash tickets when they become available again.

Disney’s Technical Glitch: Oogie Boogie Bash Tickets Sale on Pause 2023

This morning of June 29, 2023, Disney was scheduled to open its virtual queue for the general public to purchase Oogie Boogie Bash tickets for the Halloween season. Tickets were meant to be available to purchase for September-October! The queue had been set to open at 9 am PT online. However, I noticed that within eight minutes, I started to get technical difficulties , and many other Disney fans did as well where we received a message stating the following by Disney: “Ticket sales have temporarily paused and will resume soon. To stay in the queue, please remain connected to the network and keep your browser open.”

Updates were shown with timestamps but the message continued to stay the same leaving many fans frustrated, disappointed and wondering what was going on!

Here is part of the communication I had with a Disney representative about the Oogie Boogie Bash Ticket Sale on Pause:

The representative advised me not to refresh the page or exit my existing virtual queue, as  he stated doing so would remove me from my place in line. At the time of the call, the representative confirmed that there were still openings for all the available dates and emphasized they were moving slowly but people were getting access. The representative stated if any changes were to occur there would be an updated message on the virtual queue home page. 

Disney has officially announced a Queue Closure for Oogie Boogie Bash Ticket Sale 2023 and here is their official Statement to fans:

“The Queue has closed. We apologize for the technical issues which have impacted general sales for Oogie Boogie Bash. New sales are paused while we work to address these issues. Guests can visit disneyland.com/oogieboogiebash on Thursday, July 6 at 9 a.m. PT for an update, which may include the date and time when new sales resume. We commit to providing advance notice prior to activating new sales and strive to make the process as smooth as possible. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Completed ticket purchases will be honored.”

Honestly I am glad that Disney did not continue to sell more tickets and instead to release a new date. I hope they do release the dates they plan on selling tickets on July 6th but I don’t necessarily think we will be able to purchase tickets then (unless they resolve the tech issue).
