    Our family will be taking a Cruise to the Mexican Riviera this October on the Disney Wonder. We depart on October 30th. Do you know if there will be any Halloween activities aboard the ship?

    Hi Michael,

    I have not seen anything mentioned for this year's exciting activities planned for Disney cruises, but
    the following is the information from the Disney Parks Blog (2009) and in 2010 they offered similar events, so hopefully you can look forward to something similar during your cruise in 2011:  Grim Grinning Ghosts are coming out to socialize aboard Disney Cruise Line this fall with special Halloween happenings on the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder. We’ve stocked up the ships with fun events, special decorations, spooky menu items and themed dance parties on deck. The Halloween fun happens on a special day during every voyage setting sail in October.

    Here are some of the happenings:

    Trick-or-Treat Trail: Young guests can participate in a trick-or-treat hunt exploring multiple decks of the ship and collecting candy from various stations.

    Haunted Parties: Guests will gather at the Goofy Pool for a fun-filled Halloween costume party – Disney Cruise Line style. The world-famous Disney Characters will join in the fun, wearing special Halloween costumes just for the occasion. For adults, the nighttime entertainment district on the Disney ships becomes the ghoulish setting for a costume contest and party sure to bring chills to everyone.

    Spooky Movies: The Buena Vista Theatre will feature Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas in Disney Digital 3D. Also, guests can enjoy special ‘al fresco’ showing of Walt Disney Pictures’ The Haunted Mansion on Ariel View TV.

    Ghoulish Delights: Disney Cruise Line chefs have conjured some very special treats for Halloween, including: devil chocolate cake with pumpkin filling, spider cakes and a special cocktail, Witch’s Brew.

    I hope you have a Happy Halloween at sea.

    Best wishes,
