UPDATE: The Disney Parks Blog Creepy Cruise Meet-Up has reached capacity and confirmation emails are being sent. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future events!

Halloween Time is upon us, and it’s time to show your spooky Disney Side! Registration is now open for the Disney Parks Blog Creepy Cruise Meet-Up on Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014.

Sailing Ship Columbia at Disneyland Park

When you step aboard the Sailing Ship Columbia* to set sail on this creepy cruise, you may not recognize it. The Rivers of America take on an aura of foreboding … has a ghost followed you on board? Explore this floating edifice of fright, but beware …

Of course, costumes are welcome! Come dressed to show your Halloween-inspired Disney Side – whether you’re a Disney Villain, hero, princess or pirate, Halloween Time is the best time to let your inner character out!

So join us the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 7! Space for the event is limited and you must sign up here. Please remember the following:

  • All participants who sign up for the event must be 18 years or older, but guests of the participants may be younger than 18.
  • Limit one guest per registrant.
  • Meet-up confirmations are non-transferrable and have no cash value.
  • Confirmation will be for the accepted registered person plus one guest.
  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in.
  • Disneyland park admission will be provided beginning at 8:15 p.m. for the event, but participants will be responsible for any parking fees.
  • Costumes are subject to Disney guidelines and should not be obstructive or offensive.

I will give an update at the top of this post when capacity has been reached. Please note the event is subject to change or cancellation without notice.

*Guests must navigate a steep series of stairs when boarding and disembarking the ship.


  • I hope some pics will be shared and what all happened, so for those of us that were in the fantasyland theater enjoying Sleeping Beauty will get to see what was going on with you all!!

  • Thank you so much for this!!! We are so excited, i did have one question though.
    My friend coming with me has a just turned 2 year old, we were wondering out if she would be counted as a guest? Thanks again, we can’t wait!!

  • I was wondering if there was a chance anyone has two extra tickets they originally got but now those people can’t go. My husband and I would love to go to this event and we are annual pass holders so getting into the park isn’t an issue for us. I really hope someone can help if you have extra since you can’t cancel them. Thanks:)

  • Hi Erin ! Happy Fall girl ! I just got the email confirmation with a confirmation registration number on it today !? Does than mean im for sure okay if the email came today ?! I hope so ! Let me know if i need to give you my Reg number to confirm please ! Thanks GOPLUTO ! 🙂 Penny

  • Will we be able to enjoy the rides/park at all after the event? The calendar says that the park closes at 9pm that day?

  • How do I find out about these events I always am to late? I don’t want to be online 24/7 searching for these events.

  • Once again I missed signing up:-(

  • I was disappointed to discover I’d missed out on the sign-ups for this…until I realized that I would’ve had to miss a new episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and live tweeting with the cast in order to attend, LOL!

  • Oh bummer… Missed another one. Have fun everyone!

  • Melissa, if you do go, I would love to go as your guest (if you don’t already have one).

  • would be nice to find out about these events just once, before they fill up ( and I read this blog every day )

    • Dale – Keep an eye on @Disneyland on Twitter. We usually give a heads-up there.

  • The wife and I loved last years Haunted Train Ride.
    Super excited this was announced today what a wonderful birthday
    this is shaping up to be. I am pleased to say we got in for this year’s event too.
    !!!!!! BANGARANG !!!!!!

  • Thank you, thank you! These are such great opportunities for your blog readers to experience and enjoy the parks in a different way. I. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

  • Would have been an awesome event to end my birthday celebration at the park that night. 🙁 Oh well.

    • Sorry, Darlene. Hope you have a great birthday anyway!

  • After the Creepy Train last year I can’t wait to see what the team has planned for the High Seas this year. 😀

    • Off the rails and onto the water!

  • I got my spot and my husband and I would like to go. We have a 9 month old baby, would she be considered a guest?

    • She should be fine to join the two of you, as long as she doesn’t eat too many of our cookies. 😉

  • awww man, I missed out! I’m really bummed out 🙁

  • Melissa and Erin G., is there any way my mother and I can go if Melissa can’t go anymore? How may I contact you guys about this?

    • I’m sorry, Kristina. We can’t make substitutions.

  • Thanks to Erin and the entire Disneyland Blog team – looking forward to another great meet up – SPOOKY!

    • It’s going to be another fun one!

  • I didn’t get in and tried so hard! Melissa – my mom and I would love to go if you can’t!

  • What time is this event over at?

    • We should wrap up around 10:30 but you are free to go early if you would like.

  • Yes! Finally got in for one of these! Missed the last two.

    • Glad you can join us!

  • This event looks so cool! But looks like it filled up before I can register. Next time.

    • Sorry, Robbie. Keep an eye out – we’ll have another event announcement soon!

  • I just registered – so excited… and then text my husband and find out he can’t go! Is it possible to undo registration so another fan can get my spot??

    • Unfortunately not. He won’t be upset if you go without him, will he? 😉

  • Registered and never received a confirmation email…will I be ok?

    • Just be sure to bring your photo ID to check-in.

  • Awesome! Will this be available on October 31st? That is when we are coming down.

    • Unfortunately this is a one-time-only event. But there’s lots to enjoy during Halloween Time – enjoy your visit!

  • Woot Woot, just got into my very first Disney Parks Blog meet up! EXCITED!! See you soon Erin and team! 🙂

    • Great! See you there!
