Just to update what i've booked so far...
All flights (Manchester-New York/Orlando-Manchester and Boston-Orlando)
New York hotel (Hampton Inn Madison Square Garden)
Boston hotel (Holiday Inn Express)
Disney package (7 nights CSR with tickets and regular dining plan)
St Petersburg hotel (America's best Inn)
Travel insurance

Only the 2 lots of car hire to go, still shopping around for that one. I'm pleased with the deals i've got so far, though I won't deny that this trip is turning out pricier than we perhaps intended (always happens!) We'll be OK to afford it but there's always that initial 'HOW much?!' moment when you tot everything up! (Boston and New York ain't cheap cities and it's easy to forget how much tax can add on to a room price..) With that said all our meals in Disney plus breakfast in New York and Boston will be paid for in advance so that's a big saving for the ol' food budget and overall this hol should even out to what we paid for California last year. It all feels real now and i'm soo excited

A great trip in the making.
We are there about the same time as you and we are looking forward to both universal and disney halloween nights, having never done either.

With about a month to go until I can make my ADRs these are the choices so far:

50's Primetime dinner (definite, ate at HBD last time and wished we were eating here instead..!)
Whispering Canyon Cafe dinner (almost certain, we both have no issue with the antics of here or 50s but just wondering if both in one week would be a bit much. The menu looks good though and i'd love to visit WL)
Le Cellier dinner (definite, couldn't fit it in last time)
Boma dinner (definite, ate their last time and it's Steve's favourite restaurant in the world... Not just the Disney one either!)
Ohana breakfast (almost, another one we couldn't fit in last time though Steve wants Boma instead... Hmm!)
Flying Fish Cafe dinner (almost certain, debating over this or Narcoosees... Any opinions?)

We plan to eat at Beaches and Cream aswell but will be doing this OOP. Obviously it can't be booked but as 2 adults we have no issue with waiting. Not planning on the kitchen sink but the no way jose looks amazing!

DH and I LOVED the sundaes from here!

we created our own, but we could have easily eaten all of the ones on the menu and more!

Bit of a change: We've now decided against the last 2 nights in St Petersburg and will be staying 9 nights at CSR instead of 7 and we'll now be in a water view room instead of a standard. Main reasons being it's a bit of trek back to the airport (close to 2 hours and i'm a worrier!) and also I think i'd be gutted to leave WDW before our holiday ended and see the signs for it on our way back (Steve isn't so convinced about that one but 2 nights extra Disney dining was enough incentive for him anyway!) We still plan to drive to the beach one day, probably just somewhere in the middle of our 9 nights to have a chilled day Think I need to modify my ticker! I'm thinking Boma breakfast and maybe Coral Reef for our 2 extra TS credits but not 100% yet.

OK I have to update! I've been throwing around and rejecting various ideas for our MNSSHP costumes but last night I came up with 'the one' We're going to be Charlie Brown and Lucy from Peanuts I can easily make the blue dress and i'll hopefully be able to find some saddle shoes on eBay or somewhere and I can make Steve a shirt to wear with some black shorts. Thinking of getting Snoopy and Woodstock plushes as accessories, though they might be a pain to carry round... Decisions decisions!

I've also booked this tour for New York, mmm pizza!!

Also, since we never got the chance to go on a whale watching cruise in Monterey last year i've decided to book one for Cape Cod, just deciding on which company at the moment

Great plans so far!!! Sounds an AWESOME trip!!

Jack (my fiance) will be very jealous of you visiting that comic store! He is a HUGE comic fan, and loved all the comic book stores in LA!

Maybe we'll see you there!

Whispering Canyon is a good choice and we love the food there - but be aware they have toned everything down quite a lot due to some complaints (at least thats what our server told us last time we were there and disappointed that it was quieter than we remember)
This was back in Feb though - so if someone has been recently they may have something to add.
