Brand new this Fall, Disney Cruise line is offering special spooky activities for guests to celebrate Halloween on the High Seas. A centerpiece of the Disney celebration will focus on the “Pumpkin Tree”. I’m crazy about this concept and suspect it will be a magnificent photo opp for guests – along with all the costumed characters of course too! I’m a huge fan of the Disney Cruise vacation for families and love to see how Disney continues to evolve the experience for guests.
Each ship will boast their very own signature Pumpkin Tree, which will magically transform throughout the cruise with the help of a storytelling caretaker. So cool. Here are photos of the faces of the various trees. Love it!
Halloween sailings will start in September on various dates depending on the ship and itinerary. Then, later this fall, Disney Cruise line will celebrate special cruises for Thanksgiving, New Years, and a Very Merry cruise theme as well. Decor and special activities will themed out to the occasion and I’m sure will make the trip on board even more magical!
