You can now celebrate Halloween on a spooky Disney cruise

Even though summer just started, I am already looking forward to fall. Cooler weather, pretty colors, pumpkin spice everything and — of course — Halloween.

Halloween is 100 percent my favorite holiday, which is why I start planning my fall activities right about… now. And apparently, I’m not the only one. Even Disney has gotten started making plans for everyone’s favorite creepy holiday.

Not only did they already announce that we can expect 31 days of Halloween programming this year on the Freeform network (including a special about how they decorate Walt Disney World for the holiday!), but they’re also taking the fun to the high seas.

Starting this fall, Disney Cruise Line will offer Halloween on the High Seas, a “wickedly good time” during which many of their ships will transform into a Halloween wonderland filled with entertainment, activities, decorations, fun menu items and themed parties. Along with events like Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party and A Nightmare Before Christmas—Sing and Scream, you’ll also get the chance to hear ghost stories from the sea and watch “creepy cabaret” and spooky movies.

Perhaps the best part? It’s not all for kids! Once the kiddos are all spooked out for the night, the nighttime entertainment district becomes the setting for a costume contest and a “villainous takeover” on the dance floor.

Check out this video from one of the 2014 cruises to get a taste of what you can expect.

Yup, just as I thought — that looks amazing and now I want it to be Halloween even more.

Pretty sure the only way the cruise could get better is if the Sanderson Sisters show up for a repeat performance of “I Put A Spell on You” when it’s time for that adults-only party. Just sayin’, Disney.


You’ll find the fun on most voyages aboard the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wonder and Disney Magic from September through October. To see the dates on which you can catch the party on each ship, just visit Disney’s website.
