Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival with D23—October 5th, 2023

  • This Halloween, the legend comes to life! D23 is “heading” into the terror-ific town of Sleepy Hollow, New York, for the Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival—bringing a special presentation from Becky Cline, director of the Walt Disney Archives; she’ll be joined by Tim O’Day, Disney Author and longtime D23 contributor.

D23 Black Flame Ball: Spell-ebrating 30 Years of Hocus Pocus—October 7th, 2023

  • Form a calming circle and ready your brooms, mops, and vacuums… D23 is headed back to Salem for a bewitching All Hallows’ Eve Ball! “Spell-ebrate” 30 years of Hocus Pocus at a Sanderson-style soiree in the storied city of Salem, Massachusetts. This enchanted event will feature inspired entertainment, reminiscent of the iconic Halloween party from the film. And it wouldn’t be a Halloween happening unless the Sanderson sisters themselves arrived to crash the festivities in ferocious fashion. Sure to put a spell on all in attendance, this is one candlelit costumed confab you won’t want to miss. We ain’t lyin’!

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas 30th Anniversary with D23—October 13th, 2023

In addition to attending one of the El Capitan’s special immersive screenings of this incredible film, guests can also check out a display of original pieces from the stop-motion production, take a picture at a photo op, and purchase themed concessions.

D23 presents 25 Years of Halloweentown—October 21st, 2023
