Halloween on the High Seas Cruises Haunting Disney Ships this Fall

Have you heard about all the magical mischief in store for Disney Cruise Line guests this fall?

Beginning in September, each Disney cruise ship will be transformed into a ghoulish wonderland for another season of Halloween on the High Seas cruises, an extra-spooky celebration packed with haunted tricks and fun-filled treats for the whole family!


During this frightfully fun event, guests join Mickey and friends for a spellbinding lineup of themed parties and festive entertainment, including:

  • Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party, a super-fun family costume party with games, dancing and lots of candy!
  • A Nightmare Before Christmas – Sing and Scream, an interactive singalong movie experience followed by meet-and-greets with Jack and Sally.
  • Haunted Stories of the Sea, where a mysterious sea captain tells campfire-style ghost stories on the upper deck beneath the eerie glow of the night sky.
  • Halloween Isn’t Just For Kids, a special celebration just for adults where the nighttime entertainment district becomes the setting for a costume contest and a Villainous Takeover on the dance floor.

Plus, with costumed character greetings, special Halloween treats and a magical Pumpkin Tree, the not-so-spooky memories are sure to stay with you for years to come. How wicked is that?!

No matter where you are, you won’t be far from a Halloween on the High Seas vacation! We have cruises sailing from both coasts this fall:

  • From New York City: Disney Magic sails four- and seven-night Canada cruises and five- and six-night Bermuda cruises departing Sept. 20 to Oct. 29.
  • From San Diego, California: Disney Wonder sails two-, four- and five-night Baja cruises, a seven-night Mexican Riviera cruise and a 14-night Panama Canal cruise departing Sept. 14 to Oct. 19.
  • From Port Canaveral, Florida: Disney Fantasy sails seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises departing Sept. 1 to Oct. 27. Disney Dream sails three- and four-night Bahamian cruises departing Sept. 3 to Oct. 29.

So, leave the scary movies and hayrides at home this fall and head for the open water — you won’t want to miss out on any of the delightful frights!


  • Hi Lesley, we’ve just booked our 3rd Disney cruise (we’re hooked – it’s amazing!) and are doing the round trip NYC Halloween cruise. I wondered what the sea/weather conditions are like at that time of year please; although I know you can never say for certain it would be good to know what to pack! We will have a great cruise no matter what the weather, I’m sure of that!
