Wanna-be Sandy Claws, Jack Skellington! The universe knew what it was doing when it gifted us a film to enjoy after spooky season all throughout the holiday season... with a little help from Tim Burton, Danny Elfman and many others, that is.

One of the perks of staying on Disney property is to be surrounded by the … Continue reading All Star Movies Resort; a lot of Magic for a little price.
