Disney Halloween Ball – Whether you favor fairies, princesses or dastardly villains, the Disney Halloween Ball has you covered, complete with live music from New York’s premier Disney rock cover band The Little Mermen. They’ll be playing your favorite songs from classic Disney movies spanning the last 75 years. Dress your best — from wings to bulging biceps, tiaras to tails — to enter the costume contest and take photos in a pop-up photo booth. There’ll be specialty cocktails for sale, including the Glass Slipper, the Dutchess and Fairy Dust, plus, plenty of sing-alongs, dancing and “Under the Sea” enchantment, in Brooklyn..
- One night only, Friday, Oct. 28. Half-price tickets are $7.50 admission.
- Speakeasy Halloween – Climb aboard the Queen of Hearts riverboat-style paddlewheel for a three-hour party cruise, with a live DJ, cash bars and otherworldly views of the greatest skyline in the world. Soak up the picture postcard scenery across multiple indoor/outdoor decks, soaking up the sparkling night-time sights, checking out your fellow partygoers’ cool costumes, and enjoying beer, wine and cocktails from the cash bar. Sails from Manhattan.
- One night only, Saturday, Oct. 29. Half-price tickets are $12.50.
Shipwrecked Party Cruise – Glam up with your ghoulish best for Shipwrecked Aboard the Audubon Yacht, an All Hallow’s Eve soiree. There’s dancing to music spun by a live DJ, beverages from the well-stocked cash bars, and a twinkling NYC skyline beyond. Mingle with other witches and werewolves, and dare to flirt outrageously from behind the anonymity of your mask. It would be positively frightful to miss this epic party on the water. Sails from Lower Manhattan.
- One night only, Saturday, Oct. 29. Half-price tickets are $15.
Blood Manor – NYC’s most popular haunted house is back, with bloody fun nightly through the end of October.
