List of Disney Channel Halloween Movies
There are many different Disney Channel Halloween movies that are shown on air before, on, and sometimes a few days after October 31st to help get children and parents alike into the spirit of the holiday.

In the afternoon, shows for older children, pre-teens and teenagers are aired.

During "Wiz-tober," many different Halloween themed movies are shown. Some are exclusive to Disney Channel, but others have also been in theaters or on other television channels as well. Often times Disney will premiere a new Halloween movie on October 31 after running advertisements the whole month to build up anticipation. Some movies that have been shown during past "Wiz-tobers" are:
