Upcoming Holiday Fun on Disney Cruise Line!

Big thanks to Melissa from Mouse on the Mind for filling us in on all the new and exciting things happening aboard the Disney Dream and the other Disney Cruise ships this holiday season! And no, it doesn’t only mean Christmas… πŸ˜‰

Boo to you and Merry Christmas, too, This Happy Place readers! I have some pretty amazing holiday news for fans of the Disney Cruise Line: this year, for the first time ever, DCL is going to be hosting its own super awesome holiday parties!

Disney Friends on Disney Cruise Line for the Holidays

I kind of love Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party… and I’m pretty psyched that they’re bringing it to Disney Cruise Line!! Here are the deets: Halloween on the High Seas is the name of the party, and it’s taking place aboard the Disney Dream as it sails to the Bahamas throughout September and October.

Special experiences aboard the Dream include a Calling All The Monsters Mouse-Querade Deck Party with games, dancing and Disney characters in costume; A Nightmare Before Christmas interactive sing and scream movie experience with Jack and Sally; haunted storytime with a mysterious sea captain; Creepy Cabaret for grownups with the Disney villians; and holiday-themed crafts like mask-making and pumpkin carving. Sounds like a ton of spooky fun!

Though only guests aboard the Dream will be able to enjoy Halloween on the High Seas, the entire Disney Cruise Line fleet will feature themed parties with costumed characters, costume contests for adults, spooky movies and extra special treats. If only I could taste test the chocolate cake with pumpkin filling!

Throughout November and December, the fleet will also be celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year with a variety of holiday events and special experiences. My favorite? King Triton’s Tree Lighting, where young guests will help Disney characters light the three-deck tall tree. WHAT?!

For Thanksgiving, there will be a special meal, of course, and extra-special turkey towel animals in every stateroom. And, most importantly,Β you won’t miss out on that true Turkey Day tradition: football games will be broadcast live on the jumbo screen.

As it gets closer to Christmas, Santa will be aboard the ships, and there will be gingerbread house building, caroling, holiday crafts and holiday storytellers from various faiths. And those guests visiting Castaway Cay? Oh boy, is there a fun day in store for them, complete with snow flurries, character meets and a special soundtrack.

And when December 31 rolls around, guests can expect a grand affair to ring in 2014.

Okay, so when are we booking that Disney Cruise?

Happy holidays, cruisers!!

  1. I SO SO wish this is happening on the Fantasy during our October cruise…in 2014. Wah, it’s so far away!

    BUT…if it means I can do a “Creepy Cabaret” with Cruella, the wait’ll be worth it.

  2. Will the Halloween on the High Seas special character events be offered fall of 2014 on the Disney Dream also? My sons love Jack and Sally!
