The classic scary tale…with a twist.
Based on the classic Washington Irving story, it is Halloween night, when three modern-day kids decide to trick or treat at the old "Crane House," where they are magically transported right into the middle of the classic tale of Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, Katie Van Tassel, and - of course - the Headless Horseman! Lots of spooky and hilarious moments in this far-out time-travel-tale, as the three kids cope with life in 1790, goblins, and how to find their way back home.

Wake to wonder
A sleeping princess, a spellbound Prince and more fairies than you can shake a stick at are all part of this quirky adaptation of the popular tale. The King and Queen failed to invite Trollarina to the christening of their new daughter, Princess Melisande. The evil Trollarina exacts her revenge on the royal family by sending the beautiful Princess into an everlasting sleep, but little does she realize more than one spell is about to be broken by the kiss of an enchanted Faun.

So much fun you’ll “Neverland!”

It’s the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up. The score includes classic Disney songs, such as "You Can Fly," "The Second Star to the Right" and "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me." Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. The adventure features the Lost Boys, singing Mermaids, dancing Indians and of course the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!
