posted on August 3rd, 2015 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


Summer is an exciting time for Disney Cruise Line, with brand-new “Frozen” fun and itineraries all over the world. But autumn will be here again before we know it, so we’re already gearing up for another season of ghoulishly good times aboard our Halloween on the High Seas cruises!

Beginning early September through October, Disney cruisers are sure to get their fill of thrills, tons of treats and even a few tricks during this extra-spooky celebration. And the best part? In addition to the wickedly fun fall festivities, you also get tons of tropical fun in the sun.

Check out my top five favorite Halloween on the High Seas experiences, and let me know in the comments which one you’re most excited to see for yourself.

1. The Pumpkin Tree
Looming eerily over the atrium lobby, the Pumpkin Tree magically blooms with Jack-O-Lanterns during the cruise. And on the final evening, the pumpkins let their bright personalities shine—literally!—during a spooky surprise performance.

4. Halloween Isn’t Just for Kids
The adult nightlife district aboard each Disney ship becomes the frightfully fun setting for an adult-only costume contest and electrifying dance party, proving once and for all that Halloween isn’t just for kids!

5. Haunted Stories of the Sea
Only the bravest cruisers dare to gather under the stars to hear haunted tales of the sea told by a mysterious sea captain. Is it just me, or are ghost stories scarier in the middle of the ocean?

Breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park

posted on August 3rd, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


It is a little-known fact that my first role with Disney Parks was as a hostess at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park. Last week, I had a chance to put their service to the test by going to breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant with some of my fellow cast members and friends. Originally introduced as a test, breakfast is now a permanent offering. Reservations can be made starting on August 5 for dates October 4 and beyond.

We shared a selection of delicious pastries as we ate our entrees. My friend Nancy ordered the newest addition to the menu, the Croque Madame. This open-faced ham sandwich is topped with a fried egg, Gruyere cheese and creamy béchamel, served with fresh fruit. Vivi loved the Eggs Florentine, a puff pastry shell filled with scrambled eggs, cheese and fresh spinach served with country ham and roasted plum tomatoes. And me? I couldn’t resist the Open-Faced Bacon and Egg Sandwich, with poached eggs, thick-cut applewood bacon, Brie cheese, arugula and tomatoes on a toasted baguette.

While dining there, I received exciting news that the testing phase is over, and breakfast is now a permanent offering. I also got a sneak peek of the artwork that will be on new kid’s souvenir cups, debuting in October. The cups will be available for an additional cost. Check out the artwork below!

VIDEO – Visiting Ice Palace Boutique at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Frozen Summer Fun

posted on August 3rd, 2015 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


A few weeks ago I shared details about the recently opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a wintry salon where guests ages 3-12 can undergo a magical transformation, as they prepare for Coronation day during Frozen Summer Fun. In honor of National Sister’s Day yesterday, August 2, I thought it would be a perfect time to check out the Frozen fun with fellow teammate Katie Thompson.
