Many Guests are expressing anger and frustration now that Boo Bash tickets are on sale. Why, you ask? Find out right here.

Boo Bash

Disney Offers Memory Maker Special Offer For the Holidays

Despite the fact that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is canceled for 2021, Disney is still celebrating all things spooky with After Hours Boo Bash. Like the Halloween party, Boo Bash will take place on select nights in August, September, and October. You can read all about the difference between MNSSHP and Boo Bash HERE.

Prices range anywhere from $129 to $199! These events will be more exclusive than Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, hence the bigger price tag. Check out all event dates and ticket details HERE.

Low wait times, exclusive character meets, and free snacks and beverages are just some of what Disney will be offering at Boo Bash. We will even see an appearance from Maleficent in dragon form.

Tickets are now live

Guests staying at select resort hotels can now purchase tickets to Boo Bash beginning today, June 8. Other Guests can book beginning June 15.

Unfortunately, tickets are not available online, and you must call to purchase them. Phone lines opened at 7 am, but many waited close to an hour to even get through!

Our own KtP Writer, Jamie, is one of those trying to purchase tickets. She got the busy signal for almost an entire hour, and when they did finally put her through she sat on hold until almost 8:30 until she was disconnected.

Various reports on social media indicate that Cast Members told those who could actually get through that tickets for the event were not loaded into the system yet. Guests were also told to try again later in the day.

Anger and Frustration

This is just one of many examples of Disney’s tech not being able to accommodate the number of Guests. I understand this couldn’t have been done online due to the fact that resort Guests have early access.

However, Disney’s technology is never strong enough to meet the demand. The dining reservation system is glitchy on a bad day, and the site cannot handle when something goes live for the first time (looking at you, park pass system).

Many Guests are fed up trying to spend their money at Disney only to have to hurdle over obstacles. Are you trying to get Boo Bash tickets today? Have you been able to purchase them? Share your experience with us in the comments or on Facebook.

  2. I cannot find which Disney Resorts qualify for early access anywhere. We are staying at the swan. I don’t want to wait on hold only to be told we don’t qualify! Does anyone know the answer to this question?

  3. This could have been done online. DCL uses tiered access for their initial booking. There is zero excuse for Disney not being able to figure out how to get this to work online. Pretty sure they could have employed a couple of interns from a local community college to do the development to verify a reservation before purchase. This is pure laziness and not being prepared – something that seems to be happening too often at Disney lately.

  4. Busy signal all morning. I guess I’ll wait until later to probably be told it’s sold out then I will be hacked off for sure.

  5. It’s been a very frustrating experience. I started calling at exactly 7 AM and called many many times to get busy signals. I kept on trying right up until 9 AM and then started trying the DVC line. After several attempts, finally got through and got through all the prompts and was told to call back later and it hung up on me. I just don’t understand how I could be this difficult.

  6. I’ve been on hold for almost 2 hours after having some difficulty even getting connected. Still waiting….. Bery frustrating.

  7. Finally someone from KtP telling truth and not sugar coating DISNEY !!!
    Didn’t understand, Why can’t it be done on line?

  8. We really wanted to get them today and our agent is trying but no clue if we are in the list if resorts that were allowed to buy today or not. It would be tray nice if they were more forthcoming with information.

  9. Overly expensive, overly exclusive, overly difficult to procure, lesser experience than MNSSHP… Nope. As with several recent cash grabs from Disney, I’ll keep my money and my sanity and pass on that, thanks.
