It's that time of the year when Freeform is playing Halloween movies all day long for the month of October.

Don't get me wrong, I love some good Halloween movies, but Disney Halloween movies I watched as a kid beats any scary "Halloween horror" movies there is out now. I mean, I was scared to leave my house after Hocus Pocus and see vacuums in the sky, to being scared my mom was going to go on a date and be taken by a Vampire. I feel like watching Disney movies from my childhood makes me feel young but also old at the same time.

I hope you love Disney Halloween movies as much as I do. Here are my top 10 Halloween movies growing up.

10. Tower of Terror (1997)

One of Kirsten Dusts greatest rolls in her teen years, and I had the biggest crush on Steve Guttenberg...who knew! I thought this movie was super cool and suspenseful.

9. Don't Look Under the Bed (1999)

I was scared of looking under my bed in general. If I dropped a stuffed animal under my bed I'd make my brother grab it for me WITH the lights on. This movie? Didn't help my problem.

8. Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire (2000)

This was the first time I fell in love with actress Caroline Rhea before Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It's a shame that man was a vampire because he looked good in a suit. Yet we all knew he was too good to be true.

7. Under Wraps (1997)

This is the one when three 12 year olds accidentally bring a two thousand year old mummy back to life. I mean, what could go wrong? A lot.

6. Twitches Too (2007)

Giphy

All I can say is the second isn't as good as the first...that just might be my opinion but I'm just saying.

5. Twitches (2005)

Giphy

Growing up I watched Sister Sister, and so of course when I heard that Tia and Tamara Mowry was getting their own movie I obviously tuned in. I mean who doesn't love a classic movie where someone figures out that they have magical powers, but instead of just one there were TWO people. (Who just happened to be twins!)

4. Hocus Pocus (1993)

Giphy

OK hear me out. I love Hocus Pocus and as a kid it kinda scared me. Yet as I grow older and watch it thousands of times during the month of October, I have to put it away until next October. I don't want to say it's completely over-rated..but

3. Halloweentown 2: Kalabar's Revenge (2001)

Giphy

After the success after the first Halloweentown, I wasn't surprised they got a second movie! I never trusted that boy Kal, and especially his father Kalabar. I feel like Halloweentown II did not disappoint even though Gort's house stresses me the heck out every time I watch those scenes.

2. Halloweentown (1998)

Giphy

I remember the first time I watched Halloweentown and I thought the taxi driver Benny was the funniest thing! I feel like I don't have to explain this film because I hope when you think of Halloweentown you think of Benny and the giant Pumpkin the middle of town!

1. Phantom of the Megaplex (2000)

Giphy

This is hands down my favorite Halloween movie by Disney. This poor kid, Pete Riley has to save the day with people trying to ruin the movie premiere. Staff disappearing, broken popcorn machine, and a secret downstairs? What else could you ask for? (also I had the biggest crush on Pete Riley.)

Halloweentown 3 didn't make the list or Halloweentown 4. I mean Halloweentown 4 I'm still mad about. I mean, you can't replace the leading lady with a whole other person and think us kids aren't going to notice?!

Everyone Should Experience Working In Fast Food Or Retail

Working in fast food was definitely not sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows, but I'm so glad I did it.

I know these jobs aren't glamorous. In fact, most days I looked forward to clocking out before I had even clocked in. I always secretly rolled my eyes when an angry customer droned on and on about how entitled he or she was. Though I can name a lot of bad things that happened on the job, it wasn't all horrible. As I reflect on my time working in fast food, I realize how much having that job really taught me and how grateful I am to have had that experience. I really think everyone should work in fast food or retail at some point, and here's why:

You make some great friends from work. I get it, sometimes your co-workers are royal jerks or flat out creeps. You see your name on the schedule next to theirs and immediately try switching with someone else. I've been there. However, I have worked with some amazing people as well.

Every time I worked with one girl in particular, we laughed for entire shifts. One night, we were singing the national anthem at the top of our lungs without realizing a customer had come in (to our surprise, she applauded our terrible screaming). Another coworker and I turned up the radio on full blast when business was slow and had dance battles. We made the most of our shifts, and I still talk to some of these people today.

You learn how to deal with difficult people. It's the age-old story: the uppity customer thinks twelve dollars for a meal combo is outrageous and Where is your manager?!

My friend and I were once called stupid and a customer said he would never come back to our restaurant to eat ever again. At the moment, we were scared out of our minds because we were both pretty new to the job. As time passed, we became more patient and tolerant and knew what triggered these particular customers. Dealing with these adversities definitely helps in the long run, particularly when it comes to doing group work with people who seem unbearable.

Your people skills increase by a landslide. I had always thought that I was great with people before I had a job. However, when I found myself in situations where I had to talk to strangers, I would grow nervous and stumble across my words from time to time. Working in an environment where communicating with others is a driving force helped me not only with improving my public speaking, but also made me more outgoing. In situations where I once backed into the corner to avoid having to talk to someone, I now take charge and initiate a conversation.

You establish a connection with regular customers. My favorite customer was named Jack. He was the sweetest old man who came in every Wednesday and Friday and bought food for himself and his wife. I quickly memorized his order, which impressed him. We shared pleasantries every time he came in, and my coworkers and I looked forward to seeing him.

Establishing a relationship with people who come in a lot helps immensely when it comes to working. It also provides a sense of accomplishment when you memorize an order. Not to mention, the customers start to like you and typically leave a generous tip!

You have stories to tell for a lifetime! Sometimes bad things happen at work. Once I was holding a hot pan and burned my arm— I still have the burn mark on my arm to prove it. My point is, it sucked at the moment, but now I look back and laugh.

One time I asked my coworker how to make soup and she replied, "Slowly, but beautifully." It was so nonchalant that I cracked up for hours. There was also a time when a customer asked me for outlandish toppings and condiments that we didn't offer. The craziest story, though, was the drug deal that went down in our public restrooms. My coworker and I obviously could not leave our station and follow these people into the bathroom, so we were pretty much defenseless. Nobody got hurt or anything, so it made for a great story.

Working in fast food was definitely not sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows, but I'm so glad I did it. It made me more independent and outgoing and gave me memories I'll never forget.
