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.
Halloween on the High Seas has sailing dates in September and October 2024.
Guests can expect both normal cruise fun along with holiday-themed activities like trick-or-treating, spooky parties, and Halloween meet & greets.
What Makes a Disney Halloween Cruise Special
Disney Halloween 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.
Halloween on the High Seas Pumpkin Tree Lighting
While on the first night of your cruise, there is a special show in the atrium where you will get to see the Pumpkin Tree come to life!
The show involves a storytelling segment and ends with all the pumpkins glowing and a blast of confetti.
Special Halloween Treats
This cruise is full of Halloween fun and you will also find many Halloween treats on board.
The best place to find unique Halloween-themed desserts is at Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats Shop on the Disney Dream, Sweet on You on the Disney Fantasy, & Joyful Sweets on the Disney Wish.
The Vista Cafe also has a small selection of Halloween treats that are complimentary.
If you are hoping to get a special Halloween Popcorn Bucket, like you find at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, they have them on the cruise! And refills are only $1.50 all cruise long!
Trick or Treating on a Disney Halloween 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 costumes & can find cast members handing out goodies.
Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party
In addition to Pirate Night, Halloween on the High Seas Cruise also has Mickey’s Mouse-querade Dance Party.
This is a time when 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 Crafts & More
During the cruise, there will be various activities that the whole family can take part in.
There are several Halloween crafts to take part in and there are also things for the kids to do in the kids clubs.
Little Kids take part in activities like mask making and older kids do things like Pumpkin Carving.
Along with the normal Disney movies that play at Buena Vista theater, there will also be various Halloween movies playing in the movie theater, at Walt Disney Theater and Poolside throughout the cruise.
On the 2023 Disney Halloween on the High Seas Cruise, the following Halloween Movies were playing:
- Hocus Pocus 2
- Haunted Mansion
- Toy Story of Terror
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!
This is the only time of year when you get to have pictures with Chip & Dale dressed as a witch & poisoned apple.
Probably the best in terms of Halloween Costumes is Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck and Clarabelle Cow.
They are dressed up as their favorite Halloween sisters, the Sandersons from the movie “Hocus Pocus.”
