“What’s this?” The Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, we all know and love from The Nightmare Before Christmas, is taking a vacation to New York City! Disney has shared they will hold a special experience for one day only for all those living and or traveling to the New York City area that want a chance to experience a one-of-a-kind photo shoot. Check out the details below!

As shared by Disney, “Jack Skellington, The Pumpkin King, has made an unexpected return! Everyone knows Jack for his merry misadventures during Halloween and Christmas, but even The Pumpkin King needs a little relaxation every once in a while. But don’t worry, Jack isn’t going anywhere … he is headed on summer vacay! In fact, you are officially invited to join him and his misfit crew at the Halloween Town Beach Club on Saturday, July 24th in New York City.”

The overview of the event goes on to share: “On July 24th, join Jack for some well-deserved time off at Jack’s Halloween Town Beach Club. Featuring a Nightmare Before Christmas themed photo booth, bookable cabanas, digital souvenir shopping, and a whole lot more, Jack’s ‘Christmas in July’ beach vacation experience is sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Located in New York at Chelsea Triangle on the corner of 9th Ave and W 14th Street, Jack’s Halloween Town Beach Club is no trick and all treat. Book a reservation below for what’s sure to be a frightfully fun time.”

There are two options for the experience including:

  • Photo Booth (10 minutes): Don’t have all day? Reserve a time for you and up to three others to stop by and take a spooky summer snapshot in front of the Nightmare Before Christmas themed lifeguard chair. Photo booth reservations last up to 10 minutes.
  • Cabana (20 minutes): In need of a staycation? You and your plus one can reserve a cabana featuring two lounge chairs and an umbrella right in the middle of Jack’s Halloween Town Beach Club. Recharge, soak up the sun, and enjoy numerous photo ops. Don’t forget your sunscreen — sunburns aren’t fashionable in Halloween Town. Cabanas are available to book for 20-minute slots and include the chance to use the photo booth.
