Disney Cruise Line’s special Halloween-themed sailings will take place on select itineraries this September and October. Each cruise will be filled to the brim with festive entertainment, like trick-or-treating, parties, and exclusive food and beverage items created just for spooky season.

Perhaps the most exciting news though is the addition of brand new character meet and greet opportunities onboard the ship where Guests can meet Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, and Clarabelle Cow dressed up as the iconic Sanderson Sisters from the cult classic Halloween film, Hocus Pocus (1993).

Since this fall is part of the inaugural sailing season for the Disney Wish, the newest ship to launch by Disney Cruise Line, this cruise ship will also feature something extra magical for its Halloween on the High Seas event. The Disney Wish will showcase an all-new centerpiece this fall, with a magical Pumpkin Tree in the atrium for Guests to see with Jack-O-Lanterns.

The cruise ship will also include a new tree in the Cinderella-inspired Grand Hall, that will showcase a tree named Boo that grew the pumpkins ultimately used to get Cinderella to the prince’s ball. And, this tree still contains some extra magic, so if you happen to be sailing on the Wish this fall, be sure to take a look!

Halloween on the High Seas sailings will also include a costume party with favorite Disney characters at Mickey’s Mouse-querade, as well as unique villainous events just for adults, and fun details like ghoulish spins on the ship’s regular announcements.
