First Look at the New Disney Cruise Line Halloween Pumpkin Trees

Christiaan Abbott, Cruise Director gave us a first look at the new Halloween pumpkin trees that are coming to the Disney Cruise Line.

Ahoy! As a Cruise Director, I am surrounded by top-notch entertainment and events aboard our ships all year long. But even I was completely blown away last fall during our inaugural Halloween on the High Seas cruises aboard the Disney Dream! One of my favorite features was definitely the giant Pumpkin Tree that towered over the atrium lobby, which I want to tell you more about today … and give you an exclusive sneak peek at the spooky sketches for the Pumpkin Trees coming to the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy.

That’s right … We are bringing the ghoulish fun of Halloween on the High Seas to all four ships, which means each lobby will have its very own Pumpkin Tree! Halloween fun is always part of a the excitement of a Disney cruise in October, but for the first time ever, beginning in September we are offering everyone the extra-special celebration that premiered on the Disney Dream last year.

Our Pumpkin Trees are inspired by Ray Bradbury’s classic tale about the traditions of Halloween, “The Halloween Tree.” During every sailing, the trees magically transform from eerie and barren into the life of the party, with sprouting Jack-O-Lanterns, flickering lights and a booming voice. Each Pumpkin Tree is tended to by a mysterious caretaker, who tells stories of the haunted holiday as guests gather in the ghostly shadow of the tree.

What makes our Pumpkin Trees even more magical is that each one has its own unique look and personality, so guests have something different to look forward to aboard every ship. We’re planting the seeds for these trees right now, but our team shared concept art that I thought you’d enjoy seeing. Here’s a first look at the frighteningly friendly faces that you will meet aboard our haunted Halloween voyages this fall:
