Updates from Disney Cruise Line ‘Halloween on the High Seas’

In addition to Minnie, Daisy and Clarabelle debuting never-before-seen outfits as they dress up as the Sanderson Sisters, there will be stunning new décor aboard the Disney Wish. Aboard the Disney Wish, guests will witness the debut of an all-new Pumpkin Tree in the “Cinderella”-inspired Grand Hall. Featuring lighter bark, graceful branches and a mystical face, legend has it that this enchanted tree (named Boo) grew beautiful gourds with the help of a wishing star. The best pumpkin of them all was destined to grant a very special wish … and that moment came when a carriage was needed to send a fair maiden to a royal soiree. In a flash of bibbidi-bobbidi-boo, that perfect pumpkin became the coach that carried Cinderella to the prince’s ball!
