Fall is here and Halloween is right around the corner. The corn mazes are ready and the pumpkin patches are about to open their gates. The apple cider taps are flowing, so it’s time to get in the Halloween spirit to carry us through the beginning of the end of the year 2020.
Halloween means different things to different people, but for families who want to kick off the holiday season together, Disney Plus is the best place to be. Here are the best Disney Plus Halloween titles to watch right now.
Disney Plus Halloween Shows Your Family Will Enjoy
If you’re looking for Halloween content on Disney Plus, you are probably in the Halloween mood already. But let’s say you’re not. You can ease into it in a couple of ways. One is with some spooky Disney shorts.
The classic Mickey Mouse Cartoon Lonesome Ghosts is a must, especially if you love vintage Disney. Mater and the Ghostlight is another great but short cartoon to get you eased into the Halloween Season.
Tim Burton’s 1984 original Frankenweenie is a longer, but nevertheless short film full of family-friendly spooky fun that’s perfect for Disney Plus Halloween viewing.
Halloween Adjacent Films
Maybe you’re still not ready to go full throttle on a Disney Plus Halloween. Maybe you bought the candy already, but you really just want for yourself while you binge-watch the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. That’s cool. Pirates are a great way to usher in the Halloween season.
They are a staple of Halloween, but they aren’t exclusively Halloween so you don’t have to feel weird about watching pirate movies in September. Right now you can see every Pirates of the Caribbean movie except On Stranger Tides (the one with the Fountain of Youth aka. the second-best one). Other pirate titles include Swiss Family Robinson, Davy Crocket, and the River Pirates and Disney’s The Pirate Fairy.
Hocus Pocus and Other Halloween Movies
There are all kinds of fun spooks for kids of all ages on Disney Plus. For those who have always wanted the perfect blend of Halloween ticks and cute puppies, Spooky Buddies is waiting for you. Disney has a lot of magic that is perfect for the Halloween season including the new movie Upside-Down Magic.
One of the franchises Disney highlights the most is Halloweentown, but the silver tuna is Hocus Pocus. Since Walt Disney World won’t be doing their seasonal stage show based on the cult classic, now is the time to watch the original film again.
The Main Event
It’s one thing to get into the Halloween mood before October, but as the date approaches, you might want to get more serious about streaming Halloween content through Disney Plus to your home. The Nightmare Before Christmas is another Disney Classic that I still think is a miracle it was even made.
It’s so popular now that it’s hard to imagine what an unpopular oddity it was, to begin with. Another wonderful movie that uses Dia De Los Muertos to frame a story about the land of the dead, Coco is another must watch as you head into November.
