You all know I love a good excuse to have a movie night, and I’m so excited to share our Hotel Transylvania 3 movie night tips with you. We received the cutest giant coffin box loaded with Hotel T3 goodies included a Mavis costume, toys, crafts, pumpkin carving templates, recipes, vampire makeup and so much more, and this box inspired my girls and I to have a Hotel T3 movie night in honor of the launch of the Blu-Ray and DVD October 9th.
In case you aren’t familiar with the Hotel Transylvania trilogy, let’s catch you up.
The first movie in the trilogy introduces us to the monsters and their hotel. Drac’s daughter, Mavis, finds a human husband and there’s lots of laughter and shenanigans in between.
Movie 2 in the trilogy introduces us to Mavis’ son Dennis and we watch to see if he is human or monster.
In the 3rd film, 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.
What I love most about the Hotel Transylvania films is how the same voices are used in each movie. You’ll hear some familiar voices like 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 T3 Movie Night:
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.
These activities alone are enough to make for a fun movie night, but we’ve got some other great activities for you.
Pumpkin Carving Stencils
Since Halloween is fast approaching, it’s only right to include pumpkin carving in our Hotel T3 movie night. Click on the image below for pumpkin carving stencils including Drac and Mavis.

A fun movie night wouldn’t be complete without games. An easy game that the entire family can get involved in is “wrap the mummy.” Separate into two teams and challenge each team to create the best mummy “outfit” using a roll of white paper streamers. Set a timer for more of a challenge.
I hope some of these ideas inspires you to have your own Hotel T3 movie night.
