Halloween on the High Seas returns on select sailings in mid-September through October 2024. Per Disney: Families will dress up and join Disney characters in their Halloween costumes; dance the night away at a spooky celebration on the upper decks; enjoy spine-tingling themed food and beverages; and immerse themselves in a ghostly ship takeover with elaborate décor and a magical Pumpkin Tree.

The Disney Wish will sail three- and four-night themed Bahamian voyages from Port Canaveral, Florida. 

Also departing from Port Canaveral – The Disney Fantasy will offer Halloween cruises with lengths varying from four, six and seven nights. Most of these will be to the Bahamas, while select seven-night cruises will visit the Caribbean.

The Disney Magic will depart from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on vacations ranging from three to five nights to tropical destinations in The Bahamas and Caribbean.

Bonus: Select sailings on both the Disney Magic and the Disney Fantasy will include a chance for families to discover Disney Cruise Line’s newest destination in The Bahamas, on the island of Eleuthera at Lighthouse Point.

Holiday getaways will be offered from both Florida ports (Fort Lauderdale and Port Canaveral), as well as a selection of cruises from Galveston, Texas.
