There are multiple wonderfully wicked trails that are lined with the best Disney Character “bad guys” seated on thrones. Eerie music will be playing as cast members pass out some yummy treats. Treats range from carrots, pretzels, apples to chocolate, skittles and gummies! There is something for everyone.
Inspired by Disney’s The Descendants movies, this pulsing dance party lets you join the greatest dance crew from Isle of the Lost! This will take place in the Backlot area of Hollywood Land. If you love the Descendants movies, you’ll love to jam and dance here!

Custom Rules for the Halloween Party Oogie Boogie Bash
This is a halloween party, so it’s custom for everyone to dress up when attending the Oogie Boogie Bash. But before you purchase or make your costume, Disney has a few rules you should know about first!
- Costumes must be family friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
- Guests who dress like Characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
- Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
- Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
- Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
- Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground (e.g., full-length Princess dresses).
Basically, Disney just wants to keep everyone safe and all the costumes to be family appropriate. They are very strict with these rules and will not let you enter if you do not follow the guidelines. They will also escort you out if you are inside the party already and are wearing an unsafe or inappropriate costume. Save all the scary or sexy costumes for those Universal parties.
