In true Disney fashion, we go all out to celebrate Halloween on the High Seas. Every ship gets a holiday overlay with special décor, tasty treats, themed parties and loads of spooky activities for the whole family. I love walking onto the ships for the first time each fall to see the festive details from bow to stern.
Disney’s Holiday Services plays a special role in decorating the ships, from months of planning and prepping to setting it all up onboard in a matter of hours. When the team decorated the Disney Fantasy last month, my pal John was there at Port Canaveral. This video gives a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to transform a Disney ship into a ghoulish wonderland. Check it out:
Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love how you celebrate on the ships! We were lucky enough to go last year and hope to go back one day. Everything was amazing–the decorations, the characters in costume, the activities, and everyone in the Halloween spirit! My kids especially loved meeting Jack and Sally, and having the ship’s portholes “dressed” like jack-o-lanterns.
3 weeks til I’m celebrating Halloween on the Disney Dream!!! Can’t wait!!! This has me even more excited!!
