Get ready to set sail on a spooky voyage with Disney Cruise Line this fall! As part of Disney’s much-anticipated “Halfway to Halloween” celebration, which kicked off on May 6, 2024, Disney Cruise Line has announced the return of its beloved “Halloween On the High Seas” themed cruises for 2024.

Throughout September and October, select sailings will transform into a kaleidoscope of Halloween fun, where guests can get into the holiday spirit with no tricks, just treats! Expect to see the Fab Five—Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto—dressed in their spookiest outfits. Look out for special appearances from rare Disney characters, such as Cinderella’s wicked stepmother and the Sanderson Sisters from the 1993 cult classic, Hocus Pocus. This year, the characters will don brand-new Halloween costumes designed to thrill.

One of the standout features of this celebration is Mickey’s Mouse-querade, an enchanting “scare-a-bration” that invites everyone to dress up and join the party with their favorite Disney friends. Plus, don’t miss the night of trick-or-treating at sea! Additional Halloween festivities include themed crafts, movie screenings, and a variety of spooktacular treats and drinks.

The Halloween vibes extend beyond the entertainment and into the ship’s décor. Picture pumpkin trees in the atrium, festive overlays on portholes, garlands, and classic Halloween tunes setting the mood. With an ambiance so perfectly curated, it’s impossible not to feel captivated by the Halloween magic.

Throughout September and October of 2024, there will be 35 sailings across the Disney Wish, Disney Magic, and Disney Fantasy, featuring itineraries ranging from one to seven nights. Kicking off the festivities, Disney Magic will embark on a 4-night Bahamian cruise from Fort Lauderdale on September 9, 2024, calling at Nassau and Disney’s newest private destination, Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point. Meanwhile, the Disney Wish will offer 3 and 4-night Bahamas cruises from Port Canaveral, and Disney Fantasy will embark on a 7-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise, which includes Halloween day.

When Halloween wraps up, the Disney cruise fleet will quickly transition to the festive “Very Merrytime” cruises to celebrate the winter holidays.
