Vinessa Shaw is glad that for many families, it still wouldn't be Halloween without a little "Hocus Pocus."

About to be seen as Michael Chiklis' mob wife on the CBS drama "Vegas" starting Tuesday, Oct. 30, the actress had one of her first big roles in the 1993 Disney comedy-fantasy about several youths trying to prevent a new reign of terror by three sibling witches. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy play the Salem sorceresses in the movie, which ABC Family shows Tuesday (Oct. 23).

"I grew up watching Disney films," Shaw tells Zap2it. "I watched Hayley Mills movies, Julie Andrews in 'Mary Poppins' ... so being able at 16 years old to be in a Disney movie, it was incredible, and it is incredible that it still has 'legs' to this day. So many people come up to me and say, 'That's one of my favorite movies,' and it makes me smile. »
