Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat, call in the spirits, wherever they’re at! ‘
Well, as we are only a few weeks away from Halloween, some of those spirits have made their way onboard Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship — the Disney Wish! The Disney Wish embarked on its maiden voyage earlier this summer and whisks Guests away to the beautiful islands of the Bahamas for 3 and 4-night trips — including a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
For certain sailings during the fall season, Guests onboard the Disney Wish — as well as other Disney cruise ships — can celebrate Halloween on the High Seas! This exciting event features classic characters in their Halloween costumes, fun dance parties, scary movies, and more. And now we have a first look at Halloween aboard this beautiful new cruise ship.
Let’s take a look!
Disney Parks Blog shared more information about Halloween on the High Seas aboard the Disney Wish.
The enchantment of the already-gorgeous Grand Hall is elevated with beautiful garland ordained with pumpkins and fall florals.
But of course, the highlight of the décor is the all-new Pumpkin Tree. Every Disney Cruise Line ship features a signature Pumpkin Tree in its atrium with a unique look and personality, and the tree on the Disney Wish features lighter bark, graceful branches and a mystical face, setting it apart from the rest. As the tale would have it, this enchanted tree – named Boo! – grew perfect gourds with the help of a Wishing Star at night, producing the perfect pumpkin that became the coach that carried Cinderella to the Prince’s Ball.
Also new this season, we’re putting a spell on Disney Cruise Line guests with a wickedly fun character meet and greet opportunity. While all characters on board adorn Halloween costumes as part of the festivities, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck and Clarabelle Cow can be found running amuck on each ship as their favorite Halloween sisters, the Sandersons from the movie “Hocus Pocus.”
And here’s a bit more about what exciting activities adults and children of all ages can participate in.
And that’s not all! Other special experiences for these sailings include:
- Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party: Join your favorite Disney characters in Halloween attire for a fun-filled costume party.
- Halloween Isn’t Just For Kids: Adult-exclusive venues across the fleet become a ghoulish setting for costume contests and a Villainous Takeover on the dance floor.
- Spooky Movies: To get guests into the spirit of the season, Halloween-themed movies will be shown on Funnel Vision by the family pool and in staterooms.
- Ghoulish Delights: Enjoy special themed food and beverage items around the ship — and don’t forget about the trick-or-treating.
