    Is there a contest for costumes for Halloween party?

    Hello there! 

    Disney’s Haunted Mansion isn’t the only attraction where grim, grinning ghosts come out to socialize. Disney Cruise Line comes alive during Halloween on the High Seas. These themed sailings offer an extra special opportunity for you to dress up and take gourd-geous photos around the ship with Halloween decor. 

    I can confirm that Halloween on the High Seas sailings often have a special event, Halloween Isn’t Just for Kids, which is an adults-only party that includes a costume contest. Please note that these events are subject to change and vary depending on what ship you are sailing on. I dressed up during a recent Marvel Day at Sea, and my sister and I had a blast checking out all the other costumes during the Marvel costume contest. 

    During Halloween on the High Seas, you’ll come across a variety of scare-a-brations, including, but not limited to: 

    • Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party - Play games, go trick-or-treating, dance, and see your favorite Disney characters in their Halloween attire. 
    • Fall activities - Mask-making and pumpkin carving. 
    • Spellbinding Hocus Pocus Inspired Meet-and-Greet - Meet your favorite Disney characters dressed up as the Sanderson sisters.
    • Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing and Scream - An interactive movie experience and meet-and-greet that will make you feel like a Pumpkin King. 

    I’ve kept a few other spooky surprises from you, so I won’t spoil all the fun. I like to bring a mobile phone charger with me so that my phone doesn’t die after taking so many fun photos with all of the Halloween decor around the ship. I hope you found these tips helpful! Feel free to circle back if you are looking for any other advice. 

    May the magic be with you!
