Spooky season has arrived and it's time to start feeling festive and frightened. However, Halloween is probably nowhere near as exciting as an adult as it was when you were a little kid. That's why you should spend this year's haunted holiday rewatching all your favourite Disney Channel Halloween episodes. After all, wearing a costume is definitely not the only way to celebrate. You could also microwave some popcorn, light your favourite autumn-scented candles, and relive your childhood by touring the scariest corners of Disney+.
Between Lizzie McGuire turning into a zombie and Raven Baxter toying around with an old magic spell book, these 13 Halloween episodes will get you in the Halloween spirit and transport you back in time:
- Boy Meets World, "And Then There Was Shawn": Detention is bad enough, but in this classic episode, it turns into a full blown murder mystery. When the Corey, Shawn, Topanga, Angela, and Kenny discover a dead body and an eerie message on the blackboard, they all have to uncover whodunnit.
- The Proud Family, "A Hero For Halloween": Penny Proud is definitely not having the Halloween of her dreams. However, after taking a bite of her father's Proud Snacks, she mysteriously gains superpowers and uses them to fight crime.
- Lizzie McGuire, "Night of the Day of the Dead": In this episode, high school bully Kate Sanders pushes it too far by insulting Miranda's Day of the Dead skeleton figurines. Her actions might just have awakened the angry spirits of Miranda's ancestors.
