Disney News: Cruise Line transforms ships that sail during Halloween

If you’re sailing with Disney Cruise Line late October, the Halloween celebrations are going to be as spook-tacular as they are at the theme parks. From Disney characters in costume and frightfully fun Disney movies to haunted parties on deck and themed menu items like Witches Brew, the ship will be bewitched for Halloween.

Haunted Parties for children and adults

Dress your children up in favorite costumes and meet on deck to see what staff and Disney characters are dressed up as! Groove to live music and eat lots of candy during the haunted costume party. Adults can escape to Adult-only section on the ship’s nighttime entertainment districts for parties that include costume contests.

Not So Scary Movies

Get spooked in the pool with Halloween-themed movies or catch the same movies in your staterooms and get frightened to sleep!

Restaurant Trick or Treat

Cruise chefs have transformed the menu for ghoulish delights. Dare to bit into a spider cake or drink a Witch’s Brew. The chocolate cake stuffed with a creamy pumpkin filling is the best Halloween sweet treat on the ship!
