Starting in September, each cruise ship will be decked out in Halloween goodness for Halloween on the High Seas. Each ship has tons of ghoulish activities planned for its guests, as well as treats for the whole family.

Recently, the Disney Parks blog detailed several of the onboard activities awaiting guests. The whole family can celebrate the season at Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party. Here, guests of all ages can show off their costumes, play games, and indulge in lots of Halloween candy. At A Nightmare Before Christmas – Sing and Scream, guests can enjoy the Halloween classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas, in an interactive sing-along experience. And of course you’ll be able to meet Jack and Sally after the film. If you’re one for ghost stories, be sure to check out Haunted Stories of the Sea. Under the glow of moonlight, a sea captain will share with you eerie ghost stories of the sea. For adults, Disney Cruise Line will be bringing Halloween Isn’t Just For Kids, a costumed dance party in the ship’s entertainment district.
