Halloween Disney Movies

Hocus Pocus

Probably one of Disney’s most well-known creepy films, and definitely at the top of any Disney Halloween movie list, is Hocus Pocus.

This classic is a must watch not only in the fall, but any time you need a little infusion of spooks to keep you going until October 31st arrives.

Hocus Pocus 2

Released in 2022, this sequel is one of my personal favorites. The modern take on witchcraft and hilarious story about Winifred’s relationship with William “Billy” Butcherson makes this a must-watch movie.

Seeing the young versions of the Sanderson sisters, Winifred, Sarah & Mary, adds. a layer of fun that was unexpected. And the women empowerment—love that! Do yourself a favor and add this popular Halloween movie to the top of your list when you need a spooky pick-me-up.
