This October both Disney Channel and Disney Junior bring you the spookiest episodes and all the fun favourites to celebrate Halloween. Keep the little ones entertained with a host of exciting entertainment, from a delightful Disney Channel Original Movie on Disney Channel, DStv channel 303, to the best of Halloween episodes from our Disney Junior friends on DStv channel 309.
Disney Channel’s Friday movie feast continues throughout October with the return of Zapped on Disney Channel, starring Zendaya. Zapped is about sixteen-year-old Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer and straight-A student, who is having a hard time adjusting to a new high school, a new and klutzy dance squad, a new step-dad, three new rowdy step-brothers and an unruly dog. But things change when a dog training app on her smart phone begins to somehow control all the boys around her.
On Friday, 29 October at 17:00, Disney Channel premieres a great new Halloween-themed Disney Channel original Movie (DCOM) Under Wraps.
Under Wraps is the contemporary comedic remake of the 1997 Halloween classic of the same name and follows three 12-year-old friends, Marshall, Gilbert and Amy. They happen upon and awaken a mummy, which they affectionately name Harold, and must rush to return him to his resting place before midnight on Halloween. Along the way, the team narrowly escapes a nefarious group of criminals, intent on selling the mummy to the highest bidder. When Harold is inevitably captured, Marshall, Gilbert and Amy must band together to stand up to the criminals, face their fears and rescue their new—but rather “ancient”—friend.
Disney Junior offers up an entire day of festivities on Sunday, 31 October with back-to-back Halloween-themed episodes kicking off at 10:00.
The fun starts with Mickey’s Mixed-Up Adventures at 10:00. In the episode entitled The Spooky Spook House! Mickey decorates Mr. Doozy’s bed and breakfast for a chance to win Alistair’s Halloween contest.

Vampirina returns to the channel this Halloween with premiere episodes. The first premiere episode airs at 11:30. In Double Double Halloween Trouble / The Creepover. In the first story of the episode, Vampirina can’t decide if she wants to celebrate Halloween with her friends in Pennsylvania or attend her Nanpire and Grandpop’s annual Boneyard Banquet in Transylvania, so she tries to do both. Broadway legends Patti LuPone (“Evita”) and Brian Stokes Mitchell (“Kiss Me, Kate”) return as Vee’s grandparents, Nanpire and Grandpop. Then, Vee’s friend Frankie visits from Transylvania to attend her first human sleepover. Marsai Martin (“black-ish”) and Martha Plimpton (“The Goonies”) recur as Frankie and Bridgit’s mom, Briana, respectively.
Mickey joins the fun with a special, Mickey Mouse: The Tale of Two Witches (12:00). On Halloween, Mickey tells of two witches-in-training (Minnie and Daisy), who must pass four tests to graduate from the Witch Academy in Happy Haunt Hills. While Daisy isn’t confident about passing, the girls learn that working together makes their magic and their friendship stronger. After they defeat a mischievous ghost, they prove their witchy worth and graduate to become real witches! Minnie and Daisy learn that working together makes their magic and their friendship stronger.
