October Bucket List for the perfect Spooky Season!

October Bucket List for the perfect Spooky Season!

Josie Maida Josie Maida

I create an October Bucket List every single year. As a Disney Halloween fan and a lover of all things autumnal, I don't want to ever let a spooky season pass me by without fully enjoying this special season. This year, I'm sharing all of my favorite bucket list items to ensure that our Carousel Crew has the best October yet! 


There's nothing more nostalgic or quintessentially Halloween than a spooky movie marathon! Download Disney+, pop some popcorn, grab all your favorite seasonal treats, and follow this list for all of the Disney Halloween movies you need to watch this October! 

  • Halloweentown 
  • Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge 
  • Hocus Pocus 
  • Twitches
  • Twitches Too 
  • Mom's Got A Date With A Vampire 
  • Phantom of the Megaplex 
  • The Haunted Mansion 
  • The Scream Team 
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas


Over here at Spinning Carousel Company, we love to read a good book! So much so, that we created our own SCC Book Club - you can join here if you would like to read along with us this season! Whether you join us or not, this season is made for cozying up with a good book! It's the perfect time to dig into your TBR list, or to get back into reading for fun if it's been a while since you last picked up a good read! 

This October, a reading day is on my list for the perfect month. A crisp day, a warm glass of tea, and a great book. Sounds like the perfect October day to me! 


October just isn't complete without enjoying some Halloween days on Main Street U.S.A! From visiting Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party to just taking a stroll with my PSL, I have to see the Mickey pumpkins every October! 

Halloween at the Magic Kingdom cannot be beaten! After living at Walt Disney World for over 5 years, I still never get sick of seeing the park decorated for my favorite holiday. 


I am a girl who LOVES a themed outfit - which is probably one of the things that led me to start a jewelry company! This year is extra special because I can wear pieces that I designed with my best friend to celebrate October. 

From earrings to necklaces - vintage Halloween vibes to the modern spooky season - Spinning Carousel Co. has you covered for Halloween accessories you can wear every single day this October. While we love the over-the-top Halloween baubles made by some of our competitors, we wanted to create pieces that you could get much more use out of. Stylish necklaces and classic earrings that you could wear all autumn long. 

Shop today and treat yourself this October to a new piece that you can wear for seasons to come! 


At home or in the parks, October is a time for trying fun new treats - and for eating old favorites too! For me, each season I have to have the Pillsbury pumpkin and ghost cookies and glasses upon glasses of hot cider. But, I also love going into the parks and even into my local community spots to see what specials they have this season! Pumpkin pancakes at Steakhouse 71? A Mickey Pumpkin Dole Whip at the Pineapple Lanai? Count me in!
