Host a Hotel Transylvania 3 Halloween Watch Party


We love Halloween in our house, and our favorite movies to watch on Halloween night, before Trick-or-Treating are the Hotel Transylvania movies. We are celebrating the release of the newest Hotel Transylvania with a fun themed watch party. 

Simply Nerdy Mom has partnered with Sony Entertainment and Jazwares, and received a fun box of goodies to help facilitate this post. The following post contains affiliate links. See my Privacy Policy for full disclosure and more. 


We were pretty excited to have the opportunity to host a Hotel Transylvania watch party that came with a fun package of party supplies and goodies to celebrate the release of the third movie, which is available on Bluray, Dvd, & Digital combo pack on October 9th. 

I tried to get a little creative with our party snacks for the movie, which the kids had an absolute blast with. We made up some Drac popcorn that was drizzled with melted red chocolate (add some flavoring to the melted chocolate, like cherry flavor, to kick it up a notch), Blobby Jell-O cups, Wolf Pup Chow, and a delicious Drac Smoothie. 


My favorite part of the party (besides the movie, of course) was the Drac Smoothie, and my kiddos would probably agree as they sucked these down in no time. They also enjoyed making the Murray lantern, which was a featured craft project that you can find instructions for in the special features. 


Speaking of special features: There are enough special features in this combo pack to keep you and your party busy all night long. This bonus is chock full of sing-a-long songs, dance moves, Drac and Mavis makeup tutorials, craft tutorials, cast interviews, and so much more. This truly is the perfect Halloween party movie. 


In addition to the movie release, Jazware toys has released a line of toys for HT3 that will be on every kid's wish list. My two specifically went crazy for the Hotel Transylvania Blind Boxes! 



These blind boxes are a ton of fun, because you get a key to open each treasure chest and reveal a surprise character from the movie. There are so many characters and variations to collect, and the treasure chests themselves are great for storing the figures. Some chests even have a key ring for you to hold all of your collected chest keys on. 


Our watch party was a huge hit with my kiddos, and could possibly be one of the only times they sit quietly and get along with one another! The movie is fun for the whole family and brings everyone together. 




The Drac Pack is back with HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3, on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on October 9, just in time to for a spooky, fun, family movie night right before Halloween! This must-own family comedy follows in the tradition of the blockbuster Hotel Transylvania franchise when Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury, haunted monster cruise ship. Of course, the rest of the Drac Pack has to tag along, and that’s when things get a little…batty. The monsters are having a great time, indulging in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to colossus-sized buffets and exotic excursions, but then the unexpected happens when Drac falls for the ship’s mysterious (and dangerous) human captain Ericka. The third film in this family-friendly monster franchise is the best reviewed installment and you’re invited along on the haunted cruise vacation!

The all-star voice cast is back, along with some new faces as well including Adam Sandler (Grown-Ups), Andy Samberg (TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers), Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), David Spade (TV’s “Rules of Engagement”), Steve Buscemi (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire”), Keegan Michael Key (TV’s “Key and Peele”), Molly Shannon (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”), Fran Drescher (TV’s “The Nanny”), Kathryn Hahn (Bad Moms), Jim Gaffigan (Super Troopers 2) and Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein).

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3 is filled with more than an hour of engaging bonus materials including three “All-New Scary-Oke Sing Alongs,” a monster dance party dance along to “I See Love” by Joe Jonas featuring Jonas Blue, plus a fun zing-tastic read along with Drac.  Families can enjoy all the frightful fun with a “Plan Your Own Spook-tacular Sleepover” feature and “Vampire Make Over: Mavis and Drac Tutorial,” and go behind-the-scenes to explore the amazing talent who bring these characters to life in “Behind the Screams – The Voices of Hotel Transylvania 3.
