For the entire month of September, Freeform is hosting 30 Days of Disney — a celebration of everything Disney! Freeform will feature dozens of beloved movies all month, and the Laughing Place team will take a look at one of the films being shown each day with a variety of fun tie-ins. And while we’re talking about movies, we’re also busy shopping! Each day we’ll have 5 items that we love that correspond to one of the films.
