This fall, Disney Cruise Line will offer Halloween-themed events and activities, special decorations, unique menu items in the restaurants, and themed parties on its cruise ships. In 2018, Halloween on the High Seas takes place on most voyages aboard the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wonder and Disney Magic from September through October. This Halloween celebration includes themed parties, live entertainment and special décor, including The Pumpkin Tree, which transforms throughout the cruise. Other special experiences include:

“Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party”, a celebration with games, dancing and Halloween candy. Famous Disney characters, wearing special Halloween costumes just for the occasion, will join guests for this costume party.

“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.
