Halloween on the High Seas (Email)

Just got the following email:


Thank you for choosing a Disney Cruise Line vacation. We look forward to sailing with you and want to take this opportunity to share with you some important information as you prepare to pack for your vacation. You'll want to make room for your costume, because this year we've created an all-new event, Halloween on the High Seas, and we'll be celebrating with themed offerings on your sailing.

The Disney Dream will unveil Halloween on the High Seas with new events and activities along with a costume contest for adult Guests and a special costume parade for children on the following sail dates:




September 22

September 26

October 3



October 6

October 10

October 13



October 17

October 20

October 24



October 27

October 31




Though not required, we encourage Guests of all ages to bring their costumes and join in our expanded Halloween celebration. From spellbinding stories, fun-filled family entertainment and yummy treats, we've tried to think of everything to make these voyages special. While there will be themed activities throughout the cruise, on one special evening, children will receive candy treat bags in their staterooms that they can bring along to a ship-wide party to collect even more treats. On this same evening, prizes will be awarded to our adult costume contest participants based on the following categories:




Funniest

Most Spooky



Best Group

Most Original



Most Disney


More information on themed nights, times and locations will be available onboard in the Personal Navigator that will be delivered to your stateroom.

Please remember that while all Guests are invited to wear costumes, we ask that you choose costumes that are not obstructive or offensive. To avoid any disappointment or delay in the boarding process, we ask that when considering costume options you refrain from bringing toys or props that resemble guns, knives or other related implements, as these items will not be allowed onboard.

Again, we look forward to sailing with you and hope you have a magical cruise.

Sincerely,

The Cast and Crew
Disney Cruise Line

Is anybody else just excited to see any email from DCL? I'm excited about the Halloween parties. I had no intentions on taking a costume for our group now I'm rethinking my packing. Hope they have orthodontic friendly treats. Wish we knew what night and time it will be so I can plan for Palo and sending children to the club. Hope to get feedback from those who are sailing on the earlier dates. Can't wait to sail the high seas.

I'd just bring some of your own. That's what I'll do and it is what we have done for the Halloween Parties at WDW and DLR. When DS get something he can't have (for ingredient reasons, not braces, though) we swap it out, piece for piece.


Notice they didn't spell out plastic swords. How could they, when kids could very well have them (as my son will from the previous days of our vacation) from WDW's Pirate's League?


Now...how to work out costumes when my son doesn't know a thing about this?

We will be on the Fantasy's September 28th sailing. Do you think many adults will be dressing up given it is just over a month away from Halloween? My husband and I dressed up for Pirate night on the Dream a couple years ago and felt really out of place as only of handful of other guests dressed in costume as well. The serving staff were not even in Pirate garb!

I doubt many people will know about a Halloween celebration on a 28 september cruise. However, if you dress up, you will be the ones they look out. They will be saying, how did they know? and their kids will wonder why your kids are dressed up (if applicable).

As long is it is a theme night, I would dress in what you want. You are just going along with the program!

Come join our meet thread! http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2824509

We also have a FB group We all received an email about the Halloween festivities so everyone will know about it and there seems to be a lot of excitement and hype surrounding the announcement. We are very excited and our DD will be dressing up (we haven't decided what we adults will do yet though).

What? Only kids get the treat bags? What about us big kids traveling alone?

Sing it with me - I Want Candy ;-)
