Halloween on the High Seas Specialty Drinks and Dessert

Disney Cruise Line recently shared a preview of their Halloween on the High Seas specialty drinks, as well as creepy crawly dessert. To shake things up during the halloween sailings, DCL concocted two spooky drinks of the day. The first is a fruity, non-alcoholic Franken Fusion Colada which looks like a vat of who knows what from Victor’s laboratory.

The alcoholic halloween specialty option is Spooky Juice. The eye opening adult beverage is mix of Flor de Cana White Rum, Grenadine Major Peters and Mohawk Blue Curacao. The Spooky Juice is even spookier with the two “eyes” watching over each sip. So far, these drinks have been featured as the drinks of the day aboard the Disney Fantasy 7-night sailings and the 4-night Disney Dream sailings. A recipe card (ingredients only) for Spooky Juice has been added to the growing recipe collection.

For dessert, the pastry chefs created the Chocolate Spider Cake that looks like it may just crawl off your plate.

      Sandy: I believe these should be on the Dream next month. The Dream is celebrating Halloween on the High Seas on all cruises with sail dates between September 07, 2014 and October 31, 2014. 🙂

      You’re right – I hadn’t even noticed that the post specifically refers to 4 night Dream cruises. However, the post also says “So far” that these are the sailings where the special Halloween drinks have been featured. If you go to Disney Cruise Line’s website (http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/holiday-cruises/halloween/) – it says that all Dream sailings between September 07, 2014 and October 31, 2014 are a part of Halloween on the High Seas, so I’m confident that you will get this drink and all of the other fun Halloween experiences! °o°

        I know my 3-night cruise is part of Halloween on the High Seas. I’m boarding the Dream on Halloween day. I just wondered about the drinks because the 3-night Navigator posted on this site did not have them, but the 4-night Navigator from the cruise right before it did. Not a big deal, just thought it would have been nice to have them on all the cruises. It’s just a drink, I’m surprised they would exclude 3-night cruises from something so easy to do.

    We returned last week from a 7 night on the Fantasy and I never saw either of these drinks or desserts featured on board? We were honestly disappointed in the Halloween aspect of the cruise. Thought it would be more….we had a bag left in our room with 6 pieces of candy in it and that was it. There was no trick or treat trail, only a handful of games in an overcrowded lobby so you couldn’t even tell where the lines began. They didn’t even bring the pumpkin tree to life on that night (Monday) They waited until the last night of the cruise to light it up. The advertisements for Halloween on the High Seas made it seem awesome and quite honestly it was not up to Disney’s normal standards. There were so many others who felt this way as well so at least I know it wasn’t just us who felt it was HIGHLY overrated. There was a family halloween party for 30 min at 4:30 and 10:00 then an adult only Halloween party at 11 in the tube so all the fun activities for the kids never happened. Again, the commercials made it seem like a really big deal. So much that we themed mugs, koozies and drawstring bags for FE gifts only to feel like it was just a tiny blip part of the cruise. Maybe it was just the Fantasy doesn’t go all out? Not sure but what is a Halloween on the High Seas cruise without lots of candy, fun, etc?

      I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy your cruise as much as you hoped.
      The special Halloween Drinks of the Day should have been listed at the bottom front page of your Navigator, you have to ask for them. According to the 9/6 Fantasy Navigators, it was on day 5.
      There’s a story behind the Pumpkin Tree and a reason why it isn’t complete until the last night.
      I heard from a few people who were on the Dream and Fantasy and they said their kids got tons of candy.
      I’m going on the Dream next month, so I’ve been following all the Halloween threads on the DIS and a facebook group

      I just got off of the Fantasy on Saturday. The Spooky Juice was available on the day that Halloween was celebrated. Unfortunately, it wasn’t very tasty, but for a Halloween lover like myself, it was fun to have one. I loved all of the Halloween events and theming on board. I had really been looking forward to the ghost stories on deck one night, but unfortunately I got pneumonia while on the cruise and was too sick to go. 🙁

        Also, our spider came out with only three legs (one side was missing all of its legs) and also wasn’t very tasty, but was very cute and a surprise to everyone at our table (except me, since I had already researched everything!).

          Oh, and on our last night, we finally saw the Halloween on the High Seas pin (which we were told had been released the day before). Very happy to have been able to get that. 🙂
