A Frightfully Good Time Awaits Disney Cruise Line Guests this Halloween

CELEBRATION, Fla. –  Disney Cruise Line will treat guests sailing this fall to a spook-tacular good time as the Disney ships transform into a ghoulish wonderland filled with frightfully fun events and activities, special decorations, unique menu items in the restaurants and themed parties on deck.

New for 2013, an extra-spooky celebration, Halloween on the High Seas, takes place on most voyages aboard the Disney Dream from late September through October. This brand-new event features Halloween-themed parties, lively entertainment and elaborate décor including a Halloween Tree that transforms throughout the cruise. Other special experiences include:

  • Mickey’s Calling All The Monsters Mouse-Querade Deck Party, a celebration in addition to Pirate Night with games, dancing and some Disney characters in Halloween attire.
  • A Nightmare Before Christmas—Sing and Scream, an interactive movie experience where guests are part of the action, followed by a meet-and-greet with Jack Skellington and Sally.
  • Haunted Stories of the Sea with a mysterious sea captain storyteller.
  • Creepy Cabaret with performances by ghostly musicians and a Villainous Takeover on the dance floor in the adult nighttime district.
  • More spooky fun on the Disney Dream includes mask-making, pumpkin-carving and a Disney villain takeover of the ship announcements!

On all Disney ships, guests will delight in treats, tricks, magical mischief and spooky surroundings, including:

  • Haunted Parties: Beloved Disney characters, wearing special Halloween costumes just for the occasion, will join guests for a fun-filled Halloween costume party – Disney Cruise Line style – complete with live music, dancing and lots of candy! For adults, the nighttime entertainment district on the Disney ships becomes the ghoulish setting for a costume contest and party sure to bring chills to everyone.
  • Spooky Movies: To get guests into the spirit of the season, Halloween-themed movies will be shown in Buena Vista Theatre, on Funnel Vision by the family pool and in guest staterooms.
  • Ghoulish Delights: Disney Cruise Line chefs have conjured some very special treats for Halloween, including chocolate cake with pumpkin filling, spider cakes and “Witch’s Brew.”
