Disney Is Holding A Nightmare Before Christmas Experience in NYC!

“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.

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
