With Halloween right around the corner, what better way to get into the mood than by watching all your favorite throwback Disney episodes? With Disney+, episodes from our favorite childhood shows are readily available at the touch of a button. While there are other episodes from other shows available to watch, these are my top 10 favorite Halloween Disney episodes:
- A.N.T Farm – 1×14
This A.N.T. Farm special entitled “Mutant Farm” is one that I absolutely LOVED as a kid, and I still love it even now. Despite being the 14th episode of the season, this episode mirrors the series’ pilot effortlessly. Best of all? China Anne McClain’s bop of a song “Calling All the Monsters” is featured in this episode.
- The Suite Life of Zack and Cody – 1×19
I had the same love for Suite Life as any other girl growing up during the early 2000s; I still watch it to this day because of how good it is! This episode in particular was one of the ones that genuinely terrified me as a child. The storyline of the ghost of room 613 is so intriguing to me, and the way the entire episode played out was pure gold to me as both a 7-year-old and a 21-year-old.
- Jessie – 2×01
While Jessie is one of the newer shows on this list, the Halloween episode hits different. Something about this episode just gives me serotonin and makes it feel like the spooky season is actually here.
- Wizards of Waverly Place – 3×02
Honestly, this episode of Wizards wasn’t the best. For a Wizards of Waverly Place episode, they could have done a lot better than what they produced. That being said, the CGI used for the ghosts for this episode was pretty good and did scare me when I first saw it.
- Kim Possible – 1×14
Kim Possible is the OG Disney Channel show on this list. Even though it wasn’t scary, I just love this show so much, so I’d always include it in my favorite episodes lists.
- Gravity Falls – 1×12
I just binge-watched all of Gravity Falls over the summer, and I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it so much. This particular Halloween episode was genuinely scary, even to my 21-year-old self. The featured monster is just creepy and unsettling but in a good way where it leaves you wanting to keep watching.
- The Suite Life on Deck – 3×11
Honestly, all the episodes of The Suite Life on Deck were pretty creepy. This one, though, was a different level of creepy. It gave me paranormal activity vibes at some points and then Ghostbuster vibes at others. I wouldn’t say this episode is necessarily scary, but it’s definitely intense.
- The Suite Life of Zack & Cody – 3×12
Like I mentioned earlier, I loved The Suite Life on Deck a lot as a child and even still do now. This episode of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody was later on in the series, but it was still pure gold. The music and vibe that this episode gave off scared me as a kid, but the episode itself was so so good.
- That’s So Raven – 3×33
That’s So Raven was one of the deepest and most realistic shows that Disney Channel ever made in my opinion. All the episodes that aired were great, but this one, in particular, was my favorite. When I tell you that this was the scariest episode of TV that my 7-year-old self had ever watched, I’m not kidding. There were times when this episode would come on where I’d have to leave the room because I was so scared.
- Good Luck Charlie – 2×25
This is just such a good vibes show, so obviously their Halloween episode was going to be amazing. Although not scary, this episode is like the Jessie one; it gives me lots of serotonin and fall vibes.
While spooky season is kicking into high gear, I definitely think it’s worth your time to watch not only these episodes but the other ones that Disney+ has to offer.
