Today I’m excited to share with you a list of all the great Halloween movies on Disney+!
If any year is a good year to watch a bunch of Halloween movies, this is the season! Thanks to Disney+ we’ve been handling staying inside a bit better, and now that it’s fall there’s no shortage of Halloween Movies on Disney+. Between fan favorites like Hocus Pocus, and lesser known spooky films such as the Ghosts of Buxley Hall, there’s a movie for everyone.
Whether you decide to do a binge-watching weekend or you spread it out throughout the month of October, Disney+ has you covered. And so do I! I’ve created this list of Halloween related movies – some that are outright Halloween, some that are just spooky or involve fantastical creatures, and few Halloween themed comedies as well!
If you think you want to tackle a Halloween Disney movie a day, I’ve also created this fun calendar. Click here to download a printable version!
