13 Nights of Halloween 2018: Day 10

Today was an insane day. My mom and I landed in the OC at 10am went to Disneyland for about an hour and then drove from Disneyland to the Walt Disney Studios for the D23 event 25 Spooktacular years fo Hocus Pocus where Kenny Ortega had a Q & A which he talked about the movie and of course the Free Form specials along with Newsies, HSM, and Descendants.

We then watched Hocus Pocus on the Walt Disney Studios movie theater with popcorn and water. We also got to see one of the original Books that was used in the movie which was really cool. Once the movie had ended we got our goodie bags that had our mugs and pins. We then did some shopping at the Walt Dinsey Studio Store and the Walt Dinsey Studio Employee store (I can’t remember the correct name but you get the picture) where I bought a couple more things I shouldn’t have.

After waiting in line for an hour and a half for the employee store, I finally made it in and bought some exclusive merch that I am absolutely in heaven with.
