It may be hard to believe, but summer will soon be coming to an end — leaves will start to change colors, the weather will cool down, and annual pumpkin spiced lattes will make their much-anticipated return. As if that is not enough, Halloween is right around the corner and no one knows how to celebrate the changing seasons like Disney.
So let’s put on our sweatshirts, cuddle up with our PSLs, and take a look at the amazing content coming to Disney+ in September!
