Top 50 Best Disney Halloween Movies & Episodes

Halloween is an exciting time of year for everyone! It is the perfect opportunity for families to get together and make some memories.

Whether you make those memories at a pumpkin patch, at a cider mill, a corn maze, or even a haunted house, one thing is for certain… When it is all over and everyone is exhausted from the fun-filled day, nothing will sound more enticing than cuddling up on the couch and watching something spooky.

We went through the entire Halloween catalogue on Disney Plus (and even pulled out a few extra that are not on the streaming service) to find the best of the best.

Because families come in all shapes and sizes, we have a little something for everyone. Some of these picks will be a little scarier than others. Some may be a bit more tame than what your preteens want. What they all have in common though? They are sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit!

We hope that you can use this full list of Disney Halloween movies and episodes to find a new Halloween classic for the whole family!

50. Sherriff Callie’s Wild West (S2/E17: The Great Halloween Robbery/The Ghost of the Scary Prairie)

Sheriff Callie retrieves the town’s candy after all of it is stolen by a couple of bandits. Then, Peck shares a scary story that scares the town a little too much.

A fun Halloween episode with messages that are perfect for young viewers. As an added bonus, we get to see Sheriff Callie and the gang in their Halloween costumes during the episode!

49. Mater and the Ghostlight

The first of a few short films on this list!

After the success of Cars, several short films were released starring Mater. This one sees Mater being stalked by the Ghostlight in hilarious fashion. The short itself is not as memorable as the movies but it is fun to see one of our favorite characters again. It may not be Halloween-centric but it could be spooky for young kids, thus earning its spot on this list of Disney Halloween Movies and Episodes!

48. Invisible Sister

In this Disney Channel Original Movie, Cleo (Played by Girl Meets World star, Rowan Blanchard) accidentally turns her sister, Molly, invisible.

Although this movie is not specifically about the holiday, it shares similar themes. Sure, some children have an imaginary friend that brings them comfort. For other kids, being invisible is not a source of friendship.

Sometimes, feeling invisible is one of the scariest possible feelings to young kids. This movie touches on the subject and has a sweet message to boot.

47. Hannah Montana (S1/E17: Torn Between Two Hannahs)

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

This Halloween episode features a double dose of Miley Cyrus.

When Hannah’s cousin, Luann, comes to town, Miley is convinced that she is going to do something evil. But all she does is flirt with Oliver and finds pretty sea shells on the shore. Behind it all, is she cooking up a scheme to reveal Miley’s secret to the world?

The subplot of the episode is a lot more Halloween-focused, as Jackson and Robby Ray try to have the scariest house in the neighborhood. It’s a classic plot and not the last time you will see something like it on this list but this has the bonus hilarity of the twist that occurs with the competing neighbor.

46. Jake and the Never Land Pirates (S1/E22: Night of the Golden Pumpkin/Trick or Treasure!)

I will admit, before this episode, I had never seen Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Now that I have seen this, that might change. It is definitely a show made with young viewers in mind but it is so lovable. The characters are always ready for a song, an adventure, and whatever Captain Hook has up his sleeve.

This episode sees the gang looking for the legendary flying Golden Pumpkin in the Pirate Pumpkin Patch, then looking to retrieve their Halloween treasure, which has been stolen by Captain Hook. Night of the Golden Pumpkin and Trick or Treasure are great additions to your Halloween watch list this year.

45. Mickey Mouse Roadster Racers (S1/E20: The Haunted Hot Rod/Pete’s Ghostly Gala)

No list of Disney Halloween movies and episodes is complete without Mickey Mouse. And trust me, this won’t be the last you see of him and the gang.

Mickey Mouse Roadster Racers is one of the newest Mickey Mouse properties. It’s an updated version of the gang, as they travel the world in their unique race cars.

In this Halloween episode, we see them race against a real ghost! Or is it just Pete up to another one of his schemes? Then, we see Pete trying to plan a party with Minnie and Daisy but running into a host of ghosts who threaten their good time.

As always, it is fun to see Mickey Mouse and friends. While this is the “worst” version on the list, it is still a fun, updated version for young kids!

44. Walt Disney Animation Studios: Short Circuit Experimental Films (S1/E7: The Race)

This short film is not super Halloween related but its main character IS the Grim Reaper. Clocking in at about two and a half minutes long, this short keeps the Disney/Pixar tradition of short films that make you laugh, make you think, and cause you to tear up a little bit. Definitely worth a watch!

43. The Replacements (S1/E8: Halloween Spirits)

They are not quite the Addams Family but the Darling family still cooks up a funny Halloween story!

To make sure that their side of the street wins the Halloween decorating contest, Todd and Riley call in some replacements.

Before they know it, real life vampires move in next door! They bring along tombstones, caskets to sleep in, and a giant pet spider. Maybe that’s NOT what the sibling duo wanted.

With classic references and a mysterious plot, the episode is great for the whole family! You could even watch it while putting up your own Halloween decorations!

42. Fancy Nancy (S1/E11: Nancy’s Costume Clash/Nancy’s Ghostly Halloween)

FANCY NANCY – “Nancy’s Costume Clash” Ð Nancy refuses to go to a Halloween party when she discovers that her costume isn’t original. (Disney Junior) NANCY, BREE, JOJO, WANDA, RHONDA

Fancy Nancy is a lovable, precocious young girl. She is full of imagination and wants everything to go perfectly.

When her and her friend, Bree, promise to surprise each other with their Halloween costumes, they learn that they both thought to be the same Nice Witch. Later, Nancy and her friends go trick or treating.

For those who have read the books, the series is just as good. Using big (“fancy”) words, Nancy helps educate children on strong word choice without them even realizing it.

41. Tower of Terror

Originally a part of The Wonderful World of Disney TV Series, this TV movie is very interesting!

Based on the theme park ride at Walt Disney World, the film follows a journalist and his young niece as they investigate an abandoned hotel where five people disappeared many years ago.

Although it is not the best of the Made-For-TV movies on this list, it is still a great watch. It can be hard to find but if you stumble upon it, be sure to give it a watch. You may even recognize a face or two!

40. Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie

Next up is Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie. On Lumpy’s first Halloween, Tigger tells the gang of the Hundred Acre Wood a story about the Gobloon.

The Gobloon is a scary creature that captures people every Halloween Night. The only way to stop the Gobloon is by capturing it first. Then it will grant it’s captor one wish.

The gang sets out on the search, hoping to wish for more Halloween candy. They get into some spooky situations along the way. Do they ever find the Gobloon? You will have to watch this adventurous spin-off to find out!

39. Oz the Great & Powerful

This prequel to The Wizard of Oz features a star-studded cast and lots of creepy happenings in Oz and the Emerald City. Although it is not Halloween themed, it is a tale full of witches and what says Halloween more than witches?

This makes October the perfect time to watch Oz the Great & Powerful. It is a great movie for the whole family and you can continue the fun with the 1939 classic, The Wizard of Oz!

38. The Lion Guard (S1/E21: Beware the Zimwi)

The TV adaptation of The Lion King has only been around for a few years but it deserves a spot on this list.

On a stormy night, Rafiki shares a scary story with some of the young animals about the frightening Zimwi (in a catchy song, might I add). After, they decide to have a sleepover out of fear of the creature. However, with the group already on edge, Timon and Pumbaa only make matters worse with more stories of the Zimwi.

Eventually their curiosity gets the best of them and the crew goes looking for the eight-legged creature. This episode is a good way to ease young kids into scary stories without scarring them.

37. K.C. Undercover (S1/E24: All Howls Eve)

It’s Halloween time and Marisa convinces K.C. to have a party. Of course, K.C. is not happy about this. But it is a chance for her to talk to River. Meanwhile, Ernie and Judy are on a secret mission to recover a werewolf serum that may or may not have gotten all over Ernie.

Although this is a new Disney show (at least compared to some others on the list), it is highly enjoyable for fans of classic Disney shows. Zendaya is always charismatic but especially when she is trying to find the balance between normal teen girl and being a spy.

36. Muppet Babies (S1/E15: Happy Hallowocka!/The Teeth-Chattering Tale of the Haunted Pancakes)

MUPPET BABIES – “Happy Hallowocka!” – It’s Halloween time and every time Fozzie tries to be spooky he ends up doing something funny that makes the other Muppet Babies laugh instead. This episode of “Muppet Babies” airs Friday, October 5 (10:30 – 11:00 A.M. EDT) on Disney Channel. (Disney Junior) BABY ANIMAL, BABY FOZZIE, BABY KERMIT, BABY PIGGY, BABY SUMMER, BABY GONZO

Although this iteration of The Muppets is intended for young kids, it is still enjoyable. The Halloween episode sees our favorite furry friend, Fozzie, trying to scare his friends after they laugh at all of his attempts to be scary. Later, Summer tells the tale of the haunted pancakes. These are both silly but fun Halloween episodes that little kids will eat up. Just like those pancakes!

35. The Scream Team

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

A lesser known Disney Channel Original Movie, but a great one nonetheless! This one tells the story of Ian and Claire, a young boy and girl, as they try to help their recently deceased grandfather cross over into the afterlife. The movie contains ghosts and mature themes of finishing business on earth before laying for eternity.

It’s more mature than some of the other movies on this list, in that regard, which makes it great for older kids. Despite it being made almost two full decades ago, children today will still find reasons to love this fun adventure. They may even recognize WandaVision‘s Kat Dennings as one of the young kids.

34. The Black Cauldron

The Black Cauldron is notorious for many reasons. Few of them are good.

For one, this animated film had production issues as it was being made. It was deemed too scary for children and had to be re-edited before being released. Second, because of this, even with the edits, the movie was rated PG – the first in Disney’s history. And then after all of this, the movie bombed. Spectacularly. To the point that Disney did not even release it on home video for many years.

But this reputation is not fair. The Black Cauldron is a great adventure full of heroes, villains, magical items, and mythical quests. It is a fun time and unlike anything being released nowadays. It is PG for good reason – it really may be too scary for young kids. For their older siblings though? They will be surprised by how much they enjoy it. An underrated movie that deserves a spot on any Disney list – especially a list of Disney Halloween movies.

33. Girl vs Monster

A newer addition to the list of Disney Halloween movies, Girl vs Monster is the perfect adventure for young kids. Skylar, a young girl (played by Kickin’ It’s Olivia Holt), learns that she comes from a long line of monster hunters. What better time to find out than on Halloween night? The movie is a fun fantasy comedy and we hope that we will one day get the sequel that is teased at the end.

32. Spooky Buddies

I could just leave this entry with the word, “Dogs.” and I feel like many readers would agree. It’s because it’s true! They are talking dogs and it is a cute Halloween movie. Sure, it is not award worthy, but that is not the point. It’s funny, it’s sweet, and it is a great watch with your four-legged friend. What’s not to love? This is a great Halloween movie!

31. Growing Fangs

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

This Disney+ original short film tells the story of a half human-half vampire teenager who does not really fit in with either world. It is a story of acceptance, being oneself, and finding those who love you for who you are. It has a great message built into its vampiric tale that is good for children of all ages to watch and understand.

30. Puppy Dog Pals (S1/E17: Return to the Pumpkin Patch/Haunted Howl-oween)

The only thing cuter than real life dogs made to look like they are talking? Animated talking dogs. Bingo and Rolly are always up to misadventures. No matter what may go wrong, they remain optimistic and fun-loving. Seriously – their laughter will have even the most serious adults smiling, right along their kids.

In this Halloween episode of the Disney Jr. show, the two puppy brothers explore a pumpkin patch to hilarious results, then Bingo and Rolly help their neighbor track down their costume that got blown away with the Halloween wind.

29. Doc McStuffins (S1/E23: Boo-Hoo to You!)

This won’t be the scariest movie or episode on the list but it might be the sweetest. Doc McStuffins is a young girl who specializes in fixing up broken toys. When one of her family’s Halloween decorations breaks, the Doc takes it to the clinic to fix it up.

This is a great TV show for young kids, in general, as it shows kids (and young girls, specifically) that they can do anything and be anyone that they want. Even as a young kid, they can make a difference. Just like Doc McStuffins does.

28. Wizards of Waverly Place (S3/E2: Halloween)

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

When the Russo’s annual Haunted House is in danger of being shut down for not being scary enough? Alex takes matters into her own hands by inviting some real-life ghosts to join her family in the real world to take part in the festivities. Unfortunately, she has a hard time finding actually scary ghosts.

Turns out, ghosts are usually just regular people who continue to act pretty regularly even in death. This does not bode well for a scary haunted house! Will the Russo’s get to keep their haunted house next year? There is only one way to find out!

27. Toy Story of Terror

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

It’s always good to be back with Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the Toy Story gang. Even in short film form, the love that we have for this group of toys is strong.

Watching the gang in a horror movie-like setting is so much fun and different than what we have seen in the movies. Late at night, at a roadside motel, the toys are picked off one by one. But why? What’s happening? The truth is far more sinister and real than you may expect!

26. The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse (S1/E11: Houseghosts)

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

When the neighborhood’s haunted house is demolished, its ghosts have nowhere to go. Feeling bad and being the good person that he is, Mickey Mouse offers them a place to stay with him. They immediately take advantage of him and Mickey has to find a way to rid his home of the ghastly visitors.

Although it takes some time to get used to the weird new way that Mickey is animated, this episode is hilarious. Running at only eight minutes long, it is the first of a few short films that are perfect to watch in between movies during a Halloween movie marathon!

25. Twitches

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

A fun movie to help get you in the Halloween spirit! Tia and Tamera Mowry star as, unsurprisingly, twin sisters in this festive flick. The two are known as twitches. Why? Because although separated at birth, the two meet on their 21st birthday and find out that they are witches.

Get it? Twin witches? Twitches?

The two must work together to help save the world where they are from – where their birth mother and biological father once lived peacefully.

24. Don’t Look Under the Bed

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

Yet another early 2000s Halloween themed DCOM. This one is too difficult to describe but let’s just say that it features the Boogeyman and is quite possibly the scariest DCOM of all time. I had nightmares from watching this when I was younger. Take that as a warning: Don’t Look Under the Bed is great for older kids, maybe not for the younger ones.

23. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

This short film based on one of those classic fairy tales is part of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. It has iconic imagery that is instantly recognizable and is still likely to scare young viewers even after all these years. Nonetheless, for those fans of animation and early Disney movies, it is still a treat to watch this 1949 classic and have a good old-fashioned scare.

22. Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

What do you do when you are a teenager who wants to go to a concert with their buddy or go on a date with a dreamy guy from school? You try to get mom out of the house, of course! By any means necessary. Even if it means accidentally setting her up with a vampire.

When the Hansen kids begin to suspect that that is what they have inadvertently done, they set a plan in motion to save their mom from her suitor’s fangs!

21. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (S5/E7: Mickey’s Monster Musical Part I and Part II)

I never thought I would see the day where Disney released its own parody of The Rocky Horror Picture Show but here we are!

This season five episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is such a treat. With toe-tapping tunes and a fun, creepy story for the little ones, they will be all in on the episode. Even adults will enjoy the episode as it is just a genuinely good time. Especially for fans of the original movie, it is hilarious to see our favorite Disney characters acting out similar scenes.

20. Phantom of the Megaplex

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

This Disney Channel Original Movie is a personal favorite. Using Phantom of the Opera as a template, it tells the spooky story of a movie premiere. Well, that’s not all. This movie premiere is one of the biggest nights in Hollywood and it is happening at the local Megaplex.

Unfortunately, nothing seems to be going right. Screens are going black, popcorn machines are breaking, and everyone is on edge. Pete Riley, one of the movie theater’s employees, has to juggle watching his siblings who are seeing a movie by themselves and trying to find out the cause of the strange occurrences.

What sets Phantom of the Megaplex apart is its love for movies. There is a genuine sense of nostalgia for a classic film era that permeates the movie. Made even stronger by the inclusion of Hollywood legend, Mickey Rooney. If only Bette Davis could have been here also.

How could it not be included in a list of Disney Halloween movies?

19. Kim Possible (S1/E14: October 31st)

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

After getting into a confrontation with Shego, Dr. Drakken, and Duff Killigan, Kim ends up with something known as the Centurion Project stuck to her wrist.

At first, it seems like it will just be annoying for a few days, before they can get it taken off. But when Kim’s stress goes up due to lying to Ron and her family about her Halloween plans, the Centurion Project begins growing. What started on her wrist begins overtaking her body.

As with any Kim Possible episode, this Halloween special has a perfect mix of comedy and action. People of all ages will enjoy it!

18. Under Wraps

The late 1990s and early 2000s were truly the golden era for Halloween themed DCOMs. It should be no surprise, then, that this list of Disney Halloween movies has so many on it. I may be biased because I grew up with them but I have seen several of them as an adult and still get a kick out of them.

One of my personal favorite Disney Halloween movies is actually the very first Halloween DCOM, Under Wraps. It tells the tale of three teenagers who accidentally awake a mummy and must help reunite them with their lover.

This movie is one of the funniest of all the Halloween DCOMs and should definitely be added to your watchlist this year!

17. The Haunted Mansion

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

Don’t let Rotten Tomatoes fool you!

The Haunted Mansion is one of the best movies for Family Movie Night during the spooky season! I stand by its high inclusion on this list of Disney Halloween movies!

Eddie Murphy stars in this movie, based on the Disney theme park ride. Before their family vacation, Jim Evers takes his wife and children to Gracey Manor, a mansion that he is trying to close a deal on. Due to a rainstorm, the family ends up staying the night and encounter several ghosts and scary passageways.

The movie is genuinely frightening for young children and this should be taken into account before watching but for older kids, this is the perfect way to ease them into scary movies.

16. WandaVision (S1/E6: All-New Halloween Spooktacular!)

Earlier this year, WandaVision took the world by storm as the first Marvel show premiering on Disney+. It immediately made clear that the TV shows would keep the same quality of the movies.

As part of its thematic storytelling, each episode of WandaVision paid homage to a different era in TV. This specific episode was a parody of Malcolm in the Middle and Halloween episodes, in general. It’s a loving tribute that also ties the main story of the series in throughout the episode.

15. Lonesome Ghosts

In this Mickey Mouse short from 1937, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are a trio of ghost hunters. When a group of bored ghosts call them pretending to be a woman whose house is haunted, the three stop what they are doing to investigate. Once on the scene, the three are taunted by the spirits through a series of pranks and hijinks.

This short film’s use of physical humor is a winning aspect and will have children laughing at all the ways that the ghosts get one up on our main characters.

14. Monsters, Inc.

MONSTERS, INC. – Lovable Sulley (John Goodman) and his wisecracking sidekick Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at MONSTERS, INC., the scream-processing factory in Monstropolis. (DISNEY/PIXAR) MIKE WAZOWSKI, JAMES P. “SULLEY” SULLIVAN

What is there to say about this movie that has not already been said? Monsters, Inc. is a Pixar classic, a Disney classic, just a true beloved classic by all accounts.

For those who do not know, the movie follows monsters, Mike and Sully, as they attempt to catch the human child that they accidentally brought into Monstropolis.

The movie is funny, heartwarming, and a great time for people of all ages. The only reason it is this low on the list is because although it is about monsters, it is not Halloween-themed. Besides that, this is one of the very best movies on the entire list and has a place on any list of Disney Halloween movies!

13. Trick or Treat

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

If you just want a quick shot of Halloween spirit, Trick or Treat is perfect for you! As a short film, it is less than eight minutes when you exclude the credits but is a ton of fun.

After Donald chooses to honor the “trick” part of trick or treat, a witch helps his nephews teach him a lesson in kindness. She puts a spell on Donald’s house that makes his jack-o-lanterns come to life, turns his fence posts into ghosts, and other spooky happenings.

Although this short film is from the 50s, it still plays well in 2021. It is short, funny, and has a message about being nice on Halloween! Perfect watch in between movies.

12. Lizzie McGuire (S1/E24: Night of The Day of the Dead)

Maybe it was because I was a kid when they first aired but the Disney Channel Halloween episodes from the early 2000s hit differently. You will notice this trend throughout the rest of the list.

After Kate forces Lizzie to dress as a clown during the annual 7th Grade Fright Night, then disrespects Miranda’s dead ancestors, strange things begin to happen. Things disappear, people become inanimate objects, and Lizzie turns into a zombie! Did Kate bring bad karma on the event by acting selfishly? Or is there something more going on?

This is a great Halloween episode, is pretty creepy, and even explains some holiday traditions of different families that children may not be familiar with!

11. Frankenweenie (2012)

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

In 2012, Tim Burton made a feature film out of a short film he made in 1984. Though the original is in live-action, this adaptation is animated.

Shot in black and white, Frankenweenie is a sort-of retelling of Frankenstein. When a young boy, Victor Frankenstein, reanimates his dead dog, it causes an uproar in town, as everyone else wants to know his secret so that they can do the same with their deceased pets.

The black and white gives the film the feel of classic horror films and TV shows from the 1950s, but can also add a rather creepy feeling to the movie. A modern classic that is absolutely worthy of any list of Disney Halloween movies!

10. Star vs. The Forces of Evil (S2/E11: Hungry Larry)

When Marco’s dad fails at creating a truly scary haunted house, Star summons the creepiest of all monsters: Hungry Larry. Except, that’s it. He is creepy. Not scary… or so Star thinks.

This episode is, admittedly, quite similar to the Wizards of Waverly Place episode but it is shorter and, in my opinion, even scarier. Where Wizards of Waverly Place mostly relies on humor in its Halloween episode, this one has some actually scary moments. It is also beautifully animated for those that are fans of that sort of thing!

9. Gravity Falls (S1/E12: Summerween)

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

The people of Gravity Falls love Halloween so much that they have decided to celebrate it twice! Once in October and once in the middle of Summer.

This Summerween, Dipper accidentally offends a monster. The only way to get back in its good graces is by bringing it 500 pieces of candy by the end of the night.

This episode is so funny and is sure to be loved by everyone in the family. Gravity Falls is always good about keeping things creepy, so it is no surprise that its Halloween episode makes the list!

8. Even Stevens (S2/E13: A Very Scary Story)

The Even Stevens Halloween episode centers around the students of Lawrence Junior High being turned into mindless zombies on the scariest day of the year. In classic Even Stevens fashion, the episode mixes a great deal of humor and pop culture references.

This time though, it adds a level of creepiness that has made it memorable for over twenty years. If you don’t remember it, do yourself a favor and curl up on the couch and watch it all unfold.

7. Halloweentown

Courtesy of @DisneyPlus on Instagram

In this classic Halloween movie, teenager Marnie Piper (Kimberly J. Brown) learns that she comes from a lineage of witches. Although her mom has tried to hide the family’s truth from her, Marnie sneaks away to the magical world of Halloweentown in hopes of becoming an apprentice witch for her grandma (the delightful Debbie Reynolds).

This movie is one of the most iconic Disney Channel Halloween movies for people of a certain age and thanks to reruns and Disney+, new fans are discovering it and its sequels each year!

6. That’s So Raven (S2/E2: Don’t Have a Cow)

Another early 2000s Disney Channel favorite! This episode of That’s So Raven sees our resident vegetarian, Chelsea, accidentally eat meat. One thing leads to another and she and Raven end up becoming what they eat.

The make-up work makes this episode seem weirdly life-like for young children. Watching our favorite characters transform into cows is one of the most memorable moments of the entire series.

5. Halloweentown High

halloween movies

In the third entry of the Halloweentown franchise, teenage witch Marnie, her younger brother Dylan, and their Grandma Aggie lead a high school foreign exchange student program between Halloweentown and the real world.

What makes Halloweentown High even better than the first is seeing how the teenage monsters cope with the real world vs the first two where it was more so humans coping with Halloweentown. Seeing them become mystified by things that seem so normal to us is very funny. Halloweentown High also has a nice message about fitting in and accepting people who are different than them that all children should learn.

These movies are so consistently fun that they were obvious top ten contenders for the list of Disney Halloween movies before I even started thinking about it.

4. The Nightmare Before Christmas

TIM BURTONÕS THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS – Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion. Stay in and get spooky! (DISNEY ENTERPRISES, INC.) TIM BURTONÕS THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

One of the best Halloween movies, one of the best Christmas movies – The Nightmare Before Christmas is versatile!

Meet Jack Skellington. He is the King of Halloween Town. When he accidentally stumbles upon Christmas Town, he becomes obsessed with the holiday. But how can the two co-exist?

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a genuine classic for any list – not just a list of Disney Halloween movies. Use the spooky time of year to introduce your friends and family to this wonderfully stop-motion animated film!

3. Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge

This is maybe the hottest take on the entire list of Disney Halloween movies!

Most sequels pale in comparison to their original counterparts, but not Kalabar’s Revenge!

This film is slicker, scarier, and more exciting than the first. Kalabar is a great villain and his pseudo return in this sequel feels more threatening than he did in the first. Although we have love for almost every movie in the Halloweentown franchise (sorry, Return to Halloweentown & Sara Paxton!), this one will always be the best. Easily one of the best Disney Halloween films.

2. Hocus Pocus

HOCUS POCUS – The Sanderson Sisters are 17th century witches who were conjured up by unsuspecting pranksters in present-day Salem. The key to their immortality involves three children and a talking cat, who also turn out to be their biggest obstacles. Stay in and get spooky! (BUENA VISTA PICTURES/ANDREW COOPER) HOCUS POCUS

You thought we were going to have a list of the best Disney Halloween movies and NOT include Hocus Pocus? No chance!

The Sanderson sisters are iconic! Brought to life by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, this trio of witches are a must-watch every Halloween! After being awoken, the three witches are out for blood. With it being Halloween night, they fit in perfectly! But their reign of terror is just getting started…

Hocus Pocus is a genuine treat for the whole family. A stone cold Halloween classic that everyone will enjoy! Plus, there is a sequel on the way!

1. The Suite Life of Zack & Cody (S1/E19: The Ghost in Suite 613)

A true Halloween favorite in my household! This Suite Life of Zack & Cody episode will always be memorable for me, as it is truly terrifying to young kids. Between its ghost story and the way that it unravels in such spooky ways, it is one of the best episodes of the whole series!

Despite being over 15 years old at this point, the episode still gets an annual watch. It’s funny, it’s quotable, and it is creepy from start to finish! It’s a nearly perfect way to get in the Halloween spirit in less than 25 minutes!

Get in the Spirit!

Now that you have a long list of Disney Halloween movies and episodes to add to your queue, what are you waiting for? Grab your friends, your family, and your pets and watch some spooky tales that will help get you feeling the Halloween spirit this year!
