Hi October People!

I'm very excited! I just booked my airfare for Oct. 11 -14. Only three days in total, which is kind of crazy but I really wanted to do MNSSHP. I got a really great deal on airfare so I couldn't resist! I have no idea where I am staying yet, and I have never ever been to Florida in October. So, so excited!!!!!

Yay! Our trip is officially booked!

We're heading to WDW on October 30, staying for 8 nights at the Beach Club Villas. So excited! After that we're heading on a 3 night Bahamas cruise on the Disney Dream!

We'll be travelling with our yet-to-be-born baby, who will be 7 months old at the time, eep! So there's lots of planning to be done!

I'm so keen to start planning already... Any idea when the park opening hours for October will be released?

I wonder if I should just start by looking at last year's October hours...?

Maybe I should just wait and be patient.

We've never gone during Oct / Nov before... Is this ever a free dining period? Any rumours around yet?

We're booked for a family trip in July, but just decided to do a "girls only" trip with my BFF and our 10 year old daughters. Hopefully Columbus day weekend. No definite plans yet, but we're doing it!

I guess I'll get a season pass on my trip this July for myself, then my tickets will be paid for for my October trip and then when I go next March for a conference. I am getting a lot of Disney time this year without even trying. lol

Talking 3 Generations for trip #3!!!

Booked last week for my 3rd trip to WDW; this one being exclusively 3 generations of women. My mom (G'Ma), me (Mom), and my 6 yr old DD (Daughter). G'ma and DD went for their first trip in fall 2011 and DD hasn't stopped talking about how much she LOVED WDW since!! So, after a nasty divorce from DD's father, barely surviving being a full-time college student and working 2 part-time jobs.... Life is finally turning around for the better and so we are celebrating with -- another trip to WDW!!

Our plans are Oct 18-24th, staying at Caribbean Beach Resort with 7-day park hoppers. Also planning on taking in MNSSHP while there!!
We'll be flying too! DD's first time on a plane!!!!

We will be going October 27- November 2. This is our first family trip to WDW! We just can not wait, needless to say I have been thinking about it non-stop!! We will be staying at Art of Animation, in a standard Little Mermaid room, since it will only be DBf, DD (4) and me. It can't come soon enough

Glad to find a thread of people who can help me since I have never done this before!

We are going Oct 6 - 11th Staying at Pop, but may switch to POR if they announce free dining...

Very excited... trying some new things this trip!
MNSSHP (twice I'm thinking)
BOG - if we can get ressies
Pop - never stayed here before, last three trips have been POR

I think the kids will love Pop, but the price difference between Pop and POR is the same as upgrading FD from QS to TS, so if they do announce free dining, we are likely to move to POR.

Twice at MNSSHP? Is it that cool? (Haven't been).
We did Very Merry Christmas, which was fun, but spendy for a different parade/fireworks/and premade cookies.

Will definitely be booking MNSSHP for one night for sure. If for no other reason than to get the special Sorcerors card and see if there is a cool Stitch pin (which was sold out by the time I did Christmas)

My DD & I are booked at the AMR from Oct 30 to Nov 4. Our last two trips were dismal to say the least with the company we kept at the time. Knowing that Disney can be fun, and now that my DD is over 21, we decided to give it another try!! So excited to hit the F&WF, some of the lounges and also the MNNSHP, we LOVE Halloween!

Now our only question is whether or not we can get FD! We cant extend our stay but we can certainly upgrade to a moderate hotel!!
