What To Expect on a Disney Halloween on the High Seas Cruise

As if taking a Disney Cruise wasn't fun enough, Disney has made many cruises during the year even more special, by adding themed sailings. One of these special cruises takes place from late September through October 31, on all of the Disney ships, and are called Halloween on the High Seas cruises.
So pack your costume and set sail!
Right away, you'll notice the Halloween theme around the ship with little touches such as jack o lantern window clings and pumpkins galore. In the atrium, a Halloween tree will appear and change throughout your cruise, and the characters will at times sport their spooky (ish) costumes.
Kids clubs get into the fun with themed activities such as mask making, and the older kids can enjoy such things as pumpkin carving and turning into a Haunted Mansion ghost. The crafts available for all ages will allow adults join in on the fun. Want to be entertained without any effort? Listen to a scary story or two.
Although themed offerings take place throughout the cruise, there is one day where the fun is amped up. Everyone, grown ups included, is invited to a Halloween Party, Disney style. Dress up and join the festivities with the characters, and then trick or treat all around the ship. When you have your bag of treats, head to the Walt Disney Theatre for a showing of Nightmare Before Christmas...and sing (and scream) along. If you stay long enough, you might be able to meet up with the stars of the show.
After the kids are safely deposited in the kids clubs, keep the party going with adult only activities.
Other than that, the cruise is like any other...lots of fun things to see and do, exciting ports of call to explore, plenty of good food and excellent service. The Halloween activities do not replace the Pirates in the Caribbean party, so make sure your suitcase can hold not only your Halloween stuff, but your Pirate stuff as well, and be sure and leave enough room to bring home your candy stash.
