Disneyland cancels Oogie Boogie Bash due to COVID-19 concerns

by Brooke Geiger McDonald

The Halloween hits keep on coming today. This morning, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood both canceled Halloween Horror Nights 2020. According to the OC Register, Disneyland has now canceled its after-hours Halloween event, Oogie Boogie Bash, due to ongoing coronavirus concerns and the uncertainty surrounding the theme park’s reopening, which is pending guidelines from state and federal authorities.

The event, which required separate admission, was a new Halloween celebration unveiled in 2019 at Disney California Adventure in place of Mickey’s Halloween Party, which had previously been held at Disneyland park.

Starring “The Nightmare Before Christmas” villain, Oogie Boogie Bash began in mid-September last year and was held on select nights in September and October.

Walt Disney World’s Halloween event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, which was set to begin Aug. 13, was already canceled back in July.

Fans of the spooky season are hopeful that Walt Disney World will still break out the much-loved festive decor in the parks, while it remains to be seen whether Disneyland will reopen to guests in time.

It’s a shame that Universal Studios Orlando Florida is not having their Halloween Horror Nights. We were looking forward to see what houses and scare zones they had planed for this year especially for it’s 30th anniversary, but were still going even without HHN.
