"My kids favorite Halloween movie is 'Halloweentown.' They play it every year on the Disney Channel. My daughters are 4 and 5 years old and we all have been watching this for years. They have a series of the movies now but the first one is the most kid-friendly one -- they're not scary at all. Now every year we look forward to watching it."
-Kristen Paider, via Facebook

"My oldest is a big 'Halloweentown' fan ... loves the costumes and the movie is great."
-Christina Rodriguez, via Facebook

"My younger child looks forward to all of the 'Halloweentown' movies."
-Kim Kasulka Woodworth, via Facebook "The 'Halloweentown' movies with Debbie Reynolds."
