  1. DISNEY CHANNEL IS SO AWFUL NOW. ALL OF THE ACTORS ARE ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE AND CANNOT ACT. They try too hard and Disney channel is not exciting to watch anymore. You are awful now Disney Channel. I always look forward to October for Halloween to watch Halloween town, twitches, as well as others and they come on at 3am? Who the hell is going to watch those. So many people enjoy those movies and you are playing other shows that aren’t even as good of entertainment. The actors you have are awful and I’m so disappointed. Thanks for ruining my Halloween.

  2. Really disney channel… what kind of child is going to be up at 3am?? usually the disney movies play at 7pm. So not pleased with disney this year! Monstober?? Yeah right.

  3. I am very unhappy with this years Disney channel Halloween movie showings. I have looked forward to these movies every year since I was 7, and now you only show them at 3:00 a.m. In the morning…? That’s bs. Try again. Stop showing the crappy shows and give us the real stuff. Thanks

      1. Excited,but let’s see if they can’t start off will all of Halloween town early to get us excited for Halloween. This classic is my family’s favorite we watch it over and over.

  4. I am also EXTREMELY disappointed in Monstober this year. Why aren’t y’all playing the Halloweentown movies like y’all used to? Plus, the other good Halloween shows are playing at 3am. What kids are going to stay up to watch that during the week? I used to be able to took forward to watching fun Halloween movies on Disney Channel. Now, as someone else said, I will be watching more ABC Family for my Halloween fix, which says a lot. I just don’t understand what y’all are trying to accomplish or do by not playing the shows that y’all are famous for around Halloween.

  5. Very disappointed!! I have been looking forward to Halloween movies all year in Disney Channel. The selection is horrible. What happened to all the good movies that used to be played?

  6. I am very disappointed with the shows airing at 3am….who do they think is going to be up that time of morning watching t.v????? This is very UPSETTING for my little ones…..

  7. I go along with all the comments above. Disney isn’t the same anymore and yes they say it’s for the better, but what about those of us that remember the original Disney channel? I miss the Classic Disney with Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Halloween town movies, that’s so Raven, and so many others. This whole Disney rewind crap at midnight and later doesn’t cut it! Honestly who’s even up that late to watch any of those great shows? If Disney wants people to continue watching there channel, they either need to fix the scheduling or create a channel for the classic Disney. I have ETC and I get three different Disney stations but none of which show anything worth watching. Come on Disney!!!

  8. Cant believe I missed Halloween town. Who is up at 3 in the morning. I’m so mad about this. Who ever did the times have mess up big time. We is the little vampire too? Disney you have messed up this year.

  9. I know these comments won’t reach anyone but why not give it a try..I’m very disappointed with this line up as well! If you play the TV shows play them in the day time and save the “family movie time” for movies! And what happened to the older movie everyone loves!! I personally try to watch the movie “don’t look under the bed” every year and every year I miss it cause its only played once at a really weird time. Or the “Halloween town” movies everyone loves them!! Not to mention this stops on the 29th!? Disney has been a real let down for Halloween for a little while I just wish people would pull it together!

  10. This is the worst Disney lineup! Why are your movies only airing once and most of them at 3 AM? Halloween town only once?! This is a classic! What about Tower of Terror? October is meant for scary movies overnight, at least give us something! ABC family is even better than this. Very very disappointed

  11. Thankful for my DVR. I’ve recorded all of the 3 am movies so far. Apparently The Scream Team and other movies are on Disney on demand, but I’m not paying extra for that. On demand is supposed to be free if you already pay the channel, but not with Disney.

  12. This is such a sad lineup. And to put the BEST Halloween Disney movies one time only and at 3am is horrible. Phantom of the megaplex, halloweentown, underwraps, tower of terror, all those should be much easier to watch on the channel especially being that they aren’t available anywhere on the Internet or on DVD. Saddens me what has happened to Disney channel! Play the even stevens and lizzie mcguire Halloween specials too!!!

  13. ive always wished for halloween they would make a Halloween town movie in continuation of kalibars revenge were his son kal came back because at the end they always said he will be back yet none of the other movies they made continued that story I wish they would maybe make a new Halloween tow extending that story as adults maybe if they had to I just want to be able to show a more forfilled story to my kids when I introduce them to these movies cause they will always be classics and by far everyones favorite Halloween Disney channel movies

  14. How about some classics like The Haunted Mansion, Tower of Terror, maybe the Winnie the Pooh Halloween movie. Something for families with all ages. This lineup is severly disappointing.

  15. If Disney is that desperate to stay relevant(whatever that means), then they should at least create a new channel perhaps called Vintage Disney. Thereby everyone’s happy.

  16. This is terrible why aren’t they playing all of the Halloweentown movies at 7pm. Disney channel is so boring now I can’t even keep the channel on for 1 minute. Way to ruin it for everyone.

  17. I love all the Halloweentown movies and phantom of the megaplex but unfortunately it comes on so late me and my mom every year in October look forward to this and all the movies it’s ashame these kids now a days will never know any of the original movies I miss the old Disney

    1. i am VERY disappointed in disney channel now. halloween used to be my favorite time to turn on disney channel and watch all of the classic disney channel movies and now its all stupid tv shows and the movies are at 3 am. Who can stay up that late to watch a movie? & also another thing they used to play a movie at 8 everynight all year round and now they don’t play any disney movies at night. This is such a disappointment for me and i will be finding something else for my children to watch. Disney channel has ruined what it used to be and turned into something so boring and not fun for children.

  18. I remember when I was younger, and Monstober was always superb. Each night at around 8 p.m. there was a Halloween-themed movie. Then, on Halloween and the days immediately prior to Halloween, Disney played Halloween-themed movies all day. It’s sad to see that this isn’t the case anymore.

  19. when i first got the disney channel there was only one channel for Disney thats how long ago it was. i couldn’t get enough of it….. the donald duck cartoons the classic movies and shows. they were priceless. i feel sorry for the kids today …………in all honesty i stoped watching when the format changed so maybe there are some good shows i just taped on my dvr Those Calloways on Turner Classic Movies and some times starz family will put a Disney movie on i grew up when the classic movies and shows were not classic just new shows on the wonderful world of color i have enjoyed the halloween shows and movies of the past and always look at the schedule every year for a new movie or the old cartoon with Donald fighting with the witch helping his nephews so even if you have to put your show on at 3 am at least you have them on however Halloween does only come once a year………………

  20. I honestly don’t watch disney channel anymore because its just not the same as when i was growing up. But october is when all the old halloween movies come on and it just brings back my childhood!! #halloweentown #twitches
