For when you’re as obsessed with Halloween as Marnie.

No truer words have been spoken than when Marnie Piper proclaimed “Halloween is cool” in the Disney Channel original movie Halloweentown. The spooky season is not only a great time to revisit this DCOM classic for a movie night with your besties, but you can also carve pumpkins, visit some haunted houses, and dress up in your witchy best. As you’re celebrating, keep these Halloweentown quotes for captions on Instagram ready to go to document your adventures.

From skeleton cab drivers to werewolf barbers, Halloweentown has everything you could ever want this time of year. You love it so much that you may even have the Spirit of Halloween festival — aka the filming location of the first Halloweentown movie — on your wanderlust list to visit someday soon. When you’re there, you could snap a pic in front of the jack-o-lantern at the center of the town like you’re Marnie, and post right away with your favorite Halloweentown quotes.

Of course, you could also just plan a Halloweentown-inspired party at home with your BFFs. Make some delicious Halloween popcorn balls, pumpkin pie bites, and witches brew to enjoy. As you’re gathering the snacks, you’ll feel like Marnie collecting the right ingredients to make the potion to light up Merlin's talisman. Once you’ve got a cozy blanket fort set up, snap a cozy selfie to share on Insta with Halloweentown quotes and press play on Disney+.

The streaming platform has all four movies from the series, like Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge, as well, so you could plan an outdoor film festival to marathon watch all the movies back to back. If you’d rather spread them out and watch as your lead-up to Oct. 31, that’s a great idea as well. Whatever the plan may be, though, make sure you use these 35 quotes from Halloweentown to caption all your festive pics.
