Holidays at Sea Aboard Disney Cruise Line

Walt Disney World® Resort has always brought a little extra magic to the seasonal celebrations of Halloween and Christmas with Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom® Park.

Now, the celebrations will be shipped off to sea with specially themed Halloween and Christmas sailings aboard Disney Cruise Line.

In September and October, all four Disney Cruise Line ships will host Halloween on the High Seas Cruises. Aboard these special themed sailings you will experience Halloween like you never have before! Kids will enjoy trick or treating with their favorite Disney characters and marching in the Costume parade, while adults will have their own fun with a costume contest and a villainous dance in adult areas. The entire family can come together and enjoy the Mouse-querade party and see Jack and Sally at the Nightmare Before Christmas Sing and Scream Show!

During the Deck the Deck Tropical Holiday Party, the entire family can come together to play games, dance and celebrate with favorite Disney friends! Kids will be able to help launch all of the celebrations aboard the ship at a tree lighting ceremony.
