Hi Jamie and Kim! Thank you for asking me to help with this special fall trip for your family. This quote includes three date options for you to consider for a 4 night Bahamian cruise aboard the Disney Disney Dream. These cruises now depart from Port Canaveral - the Orlando area. I recommend arriving at least 24 hours prior to embarkation, but there are many fun family resorts in Orlando that a two night stay prior to the cruise would be a fun add on. Let me know if you'd like some suggestions or help with that. Now - to the cruise!
4 NIGHT Bahamas CRUISE with Disney Cruise Line - Halloween on the High Seas!
Disney Dream at Castaway Cay
Your four night Disney cruise departs from Port Canaveral with one day at sea, then heads to Castaway Cay, Disney's own piece of paradise in the Bahamas, where games, watersports and private beaches await. The following day, on to historic Nassau for a day of shopping, sightseeing or water park fun at Atlantis Aquaventure. Back onboard soak up Broadway-style shows, enchanting themed dining, delightful deck parties and activities for the whole family. Disney Cruise Line is renowned as a top cruise choice for families - there are always kids' activities available, premium entertainment, and excellent dining options. Disney's goal, though, includes pampering adults as well. It may surprise you that Disney has more adults only dedicated spaces on its ships than competitors.
Your Ship - The Disney Dream
The Disney Dream first sailed in 2011, and it is a much larger ship than the Magic you previously sailed on. Your 4 night Bahamas cruise departs Port Canaveral on day 1. On Day 2 visit Nassau, Bahamas, and on Day 3 return for your second visit to Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! Your fourth day is at sea, and on the morning of the fifth day, you return to Port Canaveral.
Halloween on the High SeaS!

- Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party – Halloween party with games, trick-or-treating, dancing and meeting Disney characters in their Halloween attire
- Mask and Pumpkin Carving Crafts – Halloween-themed activities at the youth clubs
