    Every year, Disneyland in Anaheim, CA gets transformers for Halloween and now the full details have been revealed. It's lots of the same things as every year, but this year, there's even more stuff from A Nightmare Before Christmas and Monsters University, including a frat party. A family-friendly frat party, of course. Head here for all the details.

    It's been going on for a few weeks already but Frozen has taken over Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.
