Our 5 Favorite Disney Halloween Movies!

We've already been celebrating the season, as you already know, but one of the best parts about Halloween is something we haven't even covered yet: Movies! While there are scary movies and thrillers all over the place, our favorite Halloween flicks are still the classics by Disney! Today, we'll cover our Top 5 favorites!

5. Haunted Mansion - Okay, so it wasn't exactly a hit with the critics (Rotten Tomatoes Critic Score is 13%...), but this movie was not made for the critics! It was made for the kids. And families. And darnit, if we don't just love it so much! It's a visually captivating set, thanks to Oscar-winner John Myhre, and honestly, we love Eddie Murphy. If you haven't seen it before, watch it with your kiddos this Halloween! *WARNING* This is a PG Rated film for frightening images and some language that may not be appropriate for small children.

4. Maleficent - While not exactly a Halloween movie, at all, it is still a movie about one of the most iconic Villains in Disney history. Since Halloween is pretty much Christmas for Villains, we felt it fit on this list. Especially since we like to watch it on Halloween! Watch Angelina Jolie star in the backstory behind the classic Disney treasure: Sleeping Beauty and you'll be sure to enjoy! *WARNING* This is a PG Rated film for frightening images that may not be appropriate for small children.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas - The pinnacle of stop-motion animation, The Nightmare Before Christmas is such a magical, visually-stunning, masterpiece that it has officially become one of the only movies that fits into two Holiday categories! Jack and the rest of the Holloweentown residents make for such a great script, and Danny Elfman absolutely nailed the score and song lyrics. With a unanimously positive response from audience members and critics alike, you'd be missing out if you don't watch The Nightmare Before Christmas in the upcoming holiday season!

2. Hocus Pocus - Here's the deal, while critics don't seem to like it, we would like to respectfully disagree. A lot. This movie is so much fun. Honestly, I don't know one Disney fan that isn't a fan of the Sanderson sisters and their ridiculous antics! This fun twist on an old story is the perfect movie to watch on the spooky Holiday, and Disney agrees! You'll find it playing on multiple different Disney-owned networks every-single Halloween!

1. Coco - Surprised? Maybe. It isn't a Halloween movie, after all. However, this Dia de los Muertos-themed animated movie is another instant-classic from Pixar. If you haven't seen it, stop what you're doing and watch it. If you have seen it, however, stop what you're doing and watch it again! I cried A LOT while watching this movie, mostly because I'm just a sucker for heartfelt movies, but seriously, this movie hits ya right in the feels every single time. I think, if I had to choose a movie to watch every day for the rest of my life, Coco would be in the discussion. Watch it this Halloween for a great family-bonding moment. You'll be so happy you did!

That's it for our list! Did we miss any? Did you think we got one wrong? Let us know in the comments! Until next week, Stay Magical! We'll see you soon!
