If you are a fan of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, you will be glad to know that the Cruise line has a Disney Halloween Cruise called Halloween on the High Seas that runs each Fall. It is the perfect way to celebrate Halloween.
What Makes a Disney Halloween Cruise Special
Disney Halloween Cruise Decorations
On board the ship, you will find tons of Halloween decorations! Everywhere you turn there are pumpkins and fall decor. It is all in good family-friendly taste. Nothing is scary or spooky.
Disney Halloween Pumpkin Tree
The Atrium seems to be the hub for all things Halloween. You will go there for storytelling, meeting characters, the Halloween dance party, trick or treating & more.You will even spot an evolving Pumpkin Tree that comes to life! It is definitely something you won’t want to miss seeing!
Trick or Treating on a Disney Cruise
Kids are going to love getting treats while on the Disney Halloween cruise!
There will be a trick or treating event one night during the Halloween on the High Seas cruise where kids are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costume & can find cast members handing out goodies.
Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party
In addition to Pirate Night, the Halloween on the High Seas Cruise also has Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party.
This is a time where families can dress up and dance with the Disney characters while trick or treating!
Your kids will definitely want to have their Halloween costumes to wear for this event.
Halloween Teen Activities, Crafts & More
They have family crafts (like mask making) and even Pumpkin Carving contests for teens in the Edge.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Along with the normal Disney movies that play at Buena Vista theater, there will also be a special showing of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This movie, however, is an interactive movie experience where you’re part of the action. I won’t give any more than that away!
Halloween Meet & Greets
There are plenty of chances for meet & greet with the characters, but you will most definitely want pictures with the characters dressed in their Halloween Costumes!
Don’t worry if you don’t catch them the night of the Halloween party, they will be dressed up the next morning as well.
One thing we forgot to bring was our Disney Halloween Shirts.If I had to do it all over again, I would be sure to pack cute Disney Halloween shirts for our family pictures. Take a look at these Disney Halloween shirts for some inspiration.
Several nights, there will also be a storytelling experience in the Atrium (near the Pumpkin tree). There will be a man who tells a story of why we celebrate Halloween with pumpkins.
Overall, Halloween on the High Seas was a great experience! The kids were able to take part in some pretty awesome things that they normally wouldn’t do on a cruise and got to see their favorite characters dressed up in Halloween costumes.
The only thing that I wished had been a little better run was trick or treating.
We assumed that trick or treating would take place in more than one location, but all they did was have cast members handing out candy in different spots in the atrium.
It was hard to spot the cast members because the atrium was very crowded since the dance party was also going on there.
