ooo, just the person I want to talk to.

we have friends that are thinking of joining us on this cruise. Their DD (4) frightens easily and they are worried there will be people in scary costumes on Halloween night. I think, this being Disney that is an irrational fear.

Could you shed some light on what to expect Halloween night?

We sailed on the Wonder for Halloween a few years back. I don't recall any scary costumes at all. Mostly pirate stuff and superheroes. A few wenches that might have been toeing the line of good taste. That is, of course, subjective.

Scary, I guess what is scary to one child may not be to another.

You will see the normal characters, dressed up in Halloween party costumes.

You will see the normal kids costumes for Trick o Treat around the ship. I don't recall seeing anything that would have been bad taste for DCL cruise from anyone really.

BUT for the Adult costumes there were some pretty crazy things but none out of DCL taste, I guess the scariest thing would have been this couple dressed up like the ghosts from the Haunted Mansion , impeccable make up they were awesome. But I think everyone keeps in mind that you don't scare the kids.

The kids trick or treat is a blast!!! And the party is very fun, basically anther form of the sailaway party. Most people stay dressed in costume all evening through dinner and then on to the Adult judging of costumes.

A lady from our Dis group won one of the categories, her an her DH were Marypoppins and what ever man goes with her (dunno).

Don't forget there is also pirate night........

Where many people dress up as pirates or wear pirate themed clothing of some sort too.

I have only done one 5 night cruise.

And It wasn't Halloween,

So I wonder if they will do both Formal and Semi Formal and Pirate night and Halloween Dress up Night. that only leaves one night left. Should be fun packing for that

This has been a crazy few weeks. I figured out that I will be traveling 15 out of 24 days.... with my sister. Basically I am going to spend more time with her in these few weeks then my wife and kids.

While traveling, it seems that many new people are joining (or thinking about joining) this cruise. Welcome Welcome!!

I made a facebook page for our cruise. It can be found by searching in Facebook the following:
Disney Magic 10/27/2013
Nothing personal, but neither my wife nor I Facebook. I could go on a long rant as to why... but nobody is interested. Personally I prefer the forum... but I might just be the weirdo in the group.

Last year we went to the MK for halloween and did MNSSHP. There were a lot of adults dressed up. Some were..... wow.... very impressive. I can say that there were some that I personally felt were a little too over the top for MK. Some were a little too risqué (be it a little suggestive or a bit scary).... but not so much that would get you kicked out. Nothing was horrific.

That said, 98% were fine.

My kids (9, 6, 4 & 1) were never frightened. My son is the oldest and three girls. My wife and I am very protective of them and cautious about what they see (movies, tv etc). At no point did we feel like this was too grownup of an event for them.

I would imagine it would be the same on the cruise.

it isn't that I am not interested in the FB page, as I FB at least once a day, as I also come here at least once a day.

I just prefer to keep my DIS ing on the DISBOARDS.....

It seem like when a FB page is made, some people don't come to the FB page and then some dont come back to the DIS boards.

The other sailing I am on in OCT 2014 has a FB page and now It seems like 2 separate groups.

I sort of wish that DIS boards would make the ruling like Cruise Critic and not allow FB to be linked to their site.

Any way I am sure you will get those who feel differently.....this is a small group actually, so

Anyone doing the back to back with the 2 day sailing previous to this one?

We might........

That will remain undecided for a bit longer.

We were about to but decided it was going to be too much school for the kids to miss. Plus it was going to cause some logisicical issues with other obligations.

But boy did we want to.

I would guess now that they have announced all the upgrades coming to the Magic, I would imagine that more people are going to want those the new features.

On the other hand if the price for the cruise down, do people who have already booked get to take advantage of the price break?
