Why limit Halloween to just one day when you can celebrate all month long?
Disney is pumping up the spooky festivities with a six-week celebration of Disney Hallo’Moments, including a Halloween Dance Party with prizes!
To play along, families can dress up in costume as any Disney, Pixar, Marvel, or Star Wars character and make a video (of at least 30 seconds) dancing along to the “Halloween Dance Party” song. Then, post the dance video on Instagram between Sept. 19 and Oct. 18 using the hashtag #shopDisneyContest and follow @shopdisney for a chance to win one of four $1,000 gift cards for use at a Disney store or shopdisney.com.
On the mobile game front, Disney Sorcerer’s Arena will launch new battle events for players to leverage their collection of characters to fight against iconic Disney villains starting on Oct. 8. Disney Emoji Blitz will host a variety of spooky in-game events throughout October, including Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas events. On Oct. 19, American Dad! Apocalypse Soon will feature the “The Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls” episode. Disney Magic Kingdoms will also hold special events and Halloween offers in October.
As for books, young readers can get ready to trick-or-treat with their favorite Disney characters with Mickey and Friends: Ready for Halloween!, middle-grade readers can check out some scary stories in Don’t Read This Book Before Bed, and artists can get creative with Art of Coloring: Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
When it comes to entertainment, set the mood with a Disney Halloween playlist, featuring Villains anthems like “Gaston,” the eerie Twilight Zone Tower of Terror theme, and more. Tune in to a ton of festive movies, such as Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Frankenweenie, anytime on Disney+. Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween is also back, starting on Oct. 1 with a whole month of Halloween classics.
