Disney has revealed the dates for the Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark Halloween overlay returning to the Disney California Adventure attraction.
Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT will become Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark on September 1, 2023 and the overlay will remain through Halloween, October 31, 2023. Here is Disney’s description of the overlay:
Do you have what it takes to save Groot from crazed creatures on the loose?
Amid the chaos of the Guardians of the Galaxy’s rescue attempt, Groot got left behind. Even worse, the Collector’s Fortress is now mired in a total state of emergency—and overrun with menacing beasts.
Your objective? Team up with Rocket to return to the fortress, distract the monsters and escape with his buddy in tow—but proceed with caution. With the Guardians of the Galaxy involved, the plan is bound to run into a few unexpected ups and downs!

Oogie Boogie Bash
Disney California Adventure also hosts Oogie Boogie Bash during the Halloween season. The after hours, hard-ticket party usually includes Villains Grove, the Headless Horseman, Frightfully Fun Parade, treat trails, Mickey’s Trick and Treat dance party, and photo opportunities. All lands within the park remain open during the Halloween Party, including Avengers Campus.
Unique meet and greet opportunities include various Disney Villains, as well as other characters such as Clarabelle, Daisy, and Minnie posing as the Sanderson Sisters from “Hocus Pocus,” Bruno from “Encanto,” King Mickey and Donald from Kingdom Hearts, and Hercules.
All of this year’s Oogie Boogie Bash events have sold out.
