Disney Cruise Line Introduces Spellbinding New Experiences for Halloween on the High Seas

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Melanie Curtsinger

It’s all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus! At least, it will be this fall when a first-of-its-kind character meet and greet inspired by Halloween’s favorite sisters and other new experiences debut on Disney Cruise Line’s Halloween on the High Seas sailings!

This September and October, guests will run amuck (amuck! amuck!) on Halloween-themed cruises with special entertainment and activities, including trick-or-treating, spooky parties, elaborate décor and limited-time food and beverage items.

But the fun doesn’t stop there! These voyages
will also debut an all-new character meet and greet opportunity exclusively for
Disney Cruise Line guests. While all characters on board will adorn Halloween
costumes as part of the festivities, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck and Clarabelle
Cow will debut a never-before-seen look as they dress up as the iconic
Halloween sisters, the Sandersons from the movie “Hocus Pocus.”

During
its inaugural season of Halloween cruises this fall, the Disney Wish, the
newest Disney Cruise Line ship, will also introduce a unique twist on a
Halloween on the High Seas hallmark.


Drawing of the magical Pumpkin Tree coming to the Disney Wish

The
centerpiece of every ship during Halloween sailings is the signature magical
Pumpkin Tree towering over the atrium lobby, each with sprouting
Jack-O-Lanterns and flickering lights.

Aboard
the Disney Wish, guests will witness the debut of an all-new tree in the
“Cinderella”-inspired Grand Hall.

Featuring
lighter bark, graceful branches and a mystical face, legend has it that this
enchanted tree (named Boo) grew beautiful gourds with the help of a wishing star.
The best pumpkin of them all was destined to grant a very special wish … and
that moment came when a carriage was needed to send a fair maiden to a royal soiree.
In a flash of bibbidi-bobbidi-boo, that perfect pumpkin became the coach that
carried Cinderella to the prince’s ball!

Halloween on the High Seas - The Pumpkin Tree Aboard the Disney Dream

In
addition to spooky character encounters and enchanted pumpkin trees, other frighteningly
fun experiences aboard Halloween
on the High Seas sailings include Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party, a fun-filled
costume party for families (and your favorite Disney characters); villainous
takeovers in the adult-exclusive venues; Halloween-themed movies on Funnel
Vision; and even a ghostly take on ship announcements.

Halloween on the High Seas voyages will be offered aboard select sailings
in September and October. Departing from ports in Miami and Port Canaveral, Florida,
San Diego and New York City, each cruise will take families to fascinating
destinations including the Bahamas, Caribbean, Bermuda, Canada and Mexico. All sailings from Port Canaveral and Miami will include a stop at
Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island paradise outfitted for family fun and
relaxation and brimming with special Disney touches.
