October is a new month and that means that Disney+ has a new batch of fun, and in this case, spooky, content to drop on fans of the streaming service.  We're seeing a major Premier Access movie arrive for all subscribers, and quite possibly one of the best pieces of original content ever to hit Disney+.

The first full week of October will be a big one for Disney+. On Wednesday, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's first theatrical release in two years, Black Widow, will come off of Premier Access and be available for everybody. The following Friday will see Muppets Haunted Mansion combine two things Disney fans love, the Muppets and one of the most popular theme attractions ever created. Here's what's coming the rest of the month.

The latter half of October is maybe a bit less exciting than the first half, but there's still some good stuff to enjoy. With both Black Widow arriving and Marvel's What If...? wrapping up in October, we'll get behind-the-scenes looks at both shows which MCU diehards will want to check out. 

Even more behind-the-scenes fun will come with the return of Disney Insider, which takes a closer look at all things Disney. The new episodes will look at the new nighttime spectacular at Epcot and the new Cirque De Soleil show coming to Disney World among other things.
