In fall 2020, Disney Cruise Line will treat guests of all ages to Halloween and winter holiday celebrations on sailings departing from New York, California, Texas and Florida.

First up for the festive fall cruises is the return of Halloween on the High Seas. Featured on select departures scheduled in September and October 2020, guests can expect a “mouse-querade” costume party, live entertainment, trick-or-treating, seasonal kids’ activities, a villainous adults-only party, and a ghostly ship takeover complete with elaborate Halloween decor and a magical pumpkin tree.

The Disney Magic returns to New York in October for sailings to Bermuda and Canada, all featuring Halloween on the High Seas. The vessel will sail three 5-night cruises offering two days in Bermuda, as well as one 5-night cruise visiting Canada’s seaport cities such as Saint John, the country’s oldest incorporated city, and Halifax, the provincial capital of Nova Scotia. The Disney Wonder will also feature Halloween on the High Seas cruises with itineraries sailing from San Diego, California to Baja and the Mexican Riviera. Baja itineraries of two, three, four and five nights will highlight the region’s beaches and water activities with calls on Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico, while one 7-night Mexican Riviera cruise, with additional stops in Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta will complete the southern California sailings.

From early November through December, the Disney Cruise Line fleet will switch gears with bow-to-stern holiday cheer and entertainment during its Very Merrytime Cruises. Family-friendly winter holiday adventures will include merry parties, a tree lighting ceremony, festive activities, special food and beverage surprises, Disney characters dressed up in holiday attire, and a winter wonderland ball with Santa and Mrs. Clause, plus a flurry of “Frozen” snowfall.

Very Merrytime Cruises will be available aboard Disney Wonder, which will homeport in Galveston, Texas before cruising to the Caribbean and The Bahamas with 4-, 5-, 6-, and 7-night sailings. Caribbean itineraries include stops in Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico and Grand Cayman. Bahamian cruises feature stops at Nassau, Bahamas and Key West, Florida, as well as Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. In addition, the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream will sail to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Port Canaveral, Florida in fall 2020, featuring Halloween on the High Seas or Very Merrytime Cruises on most sailings.

Bookings for these 2020 cruises open to the public on June 13, 2019. For more information, visit To learn about Disney Cruise Line’s summer 2020 sailing, including a return to Greece and the addition of new ports, click here.
