Welcome to Monster High - Dance the Fright Away is a party line in honor of the Dance the Fright Away event. It consists of six dolls released in two waves plus a non-party re-release of the Welcome to Monster High - Monstrous Rivals Moanica D'Kay doll. The first three dolls, Clawdeen Wolf, Cleo de Nile, and Lagoona Blue, hit shelves in Mid June of 2016. Moanica's non-party single pack version came out at that time too. A party version of Moanica is included in the second wave of Welcome to Monster High - Dance the Fright Away, along with Deuce Gorgon and Abbey Bominable. This wave is exclusive to Walmart and became available in Early July of that year.
The names Welcome to Monster High and Dance the Fright Away are printed on the decor inside the box; Welcome to Monster High on the banner and Dance the Fright Away below the photo set.
Welcome to Monster High - Dance the Fright Away is thematically alike to Welcome to Monster High - Photo Booth Ghouls, because they both show off the characters in their Dance the Fright Away party outfits. The difference is that the latter comes with three masks to chose from, while the dolls of the former have only one. The non-party edition of Moanica is a re-release without changes of the Welcome to Monster High - Monstrous Rivals doll.
The packaging features a singular blurb on the back of the box shortly describing the events of "Welcome to Monster High". Because it is copied from the Welcome to Monster High - Monstrous Rivals packaging, it makes no specific mention of any of the characters except Moanica.
Like the entire Welcome to Monster High line, Welcome to Monster High - Dance the Fright Away is tied to "Welcome to Monster High". The first wave of dolls are dressed up as the characters are during the Dance the Fright Away party at the end. The second wave of fashions weren't worn by the respective characters and Abbey does not appear in the TV special at all.
- Undoubtedly an influence in the inclusion of Abbey in the lineup, at that time a character without presence in Generation 2, is that she has a small history of Walmart-exclusive party dolls due to the 2012 Ghouls Rule and the 2013 13 Wishes - Haunt the Casbah dolls.
