DCL News and Discounts, Disney Cruise, Disney News / Friday, April 29th, 2022

Are you sailing on a Halloween on the High Seas Cruise? If you are you are in for a real treat.

A first-of-its-kind character meet and greet inspired by Halloween’s favourite sisters and other new experiences will debut on Disney Cruise Line’s Halloween on the High Seas sailings in 2022.

This September and October, guests will run amuck (amuck! amuck!) on Halloween-themed cruises with special entertainment and activities, including trick-or-treating, spooky parties, elaborate décor, and limited-time food and beverage items. 

These voyages will debut an all-new character meet and greet opportunity exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests. While all characters onboard will adorn Halloween costumes as part of the festivities, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, and Clarabelle Cow will debut a never-before-seen look as they dress up as the iconic Sanderson sisters from “Hocus Pocus.”

During its inaugural season of Halloween cruises this fall, the Disney Wish, the newest Disney Cruise Line ship, will also introduce a unique twist on a Halloween on the High Seas hallmark.

The centrepiece of every ship during Halloween sailings is the signature magical Pumpkin Tree towering over the atrium lobby, each with sprouting Jack-O-Lanterns and flickering lights. Aboard the Disney Wish, guests will witness the debut of an all-new tree in the “Cinderella”-inspired Grand Hall.

Magical Pumpkin Tree

Featuring lighter bark, graceful branches, and a mystical face, legend has it that this enchanted tree (named Boo) grew beautiful gourds with the help of a wishing star. The best pumpkin of them all was destined to grant a very special wish … and that moment came when a carriage was needed to send a fair maiden to a royal soiree. In a flash of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, that perfect pumpkin became the coach that carried Cinderella to the prince’s ball! 

In addition to spooky character encounters and enchanted pumpkin trees, other frighteningly fun experiences aboard Halloween on the High Seas sailings include Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party, a fun-filled costume party for families (and your favourite Disney characters); villainous takeovers in the adult-exclusive venues; Halloween-themed movies on Funnel Vision; and even a ghostly take on ship announcements.
