Can't decide if staying off site is going to be a pain at WDW.
I would love to know more about the deluxe villas (specifically the $$).

We had a 2-bedroom condo at Wyndham Bonnet Creek. If that's one of the places you're considering, I'll be happy to answer any questions that you may have! It's offsite, but still within Disney property (close to POP and CBR).

What is YES? I've seen some things about it but nothing about what it is.

I'm planning for a short trip in October 2013 because I've been wanting to go to MNSSHP! We will be there in almost 4 months to the day so I'm trying to focus on that trip for now. I will say that I am very excited about going during the fall

In a nutshell, your child takes a half-day educational "field trip" in one of the Disney parks. As a result, the child, his siblings and parents receive deeply discounted park tickets for the duration of the stay (up to 8 days).

Yea!! I need a Disney fix...

Joining in!! I'm planning for our 2nd Disney trip to be in October 2013. So happy to have found a planning thread. I know it's a LONG way off, but I'm going through withdrawal.

It will be me and my son, who will be 6 at that time. We had an amazing first WDW trip at the end of Feb 2012. We are hooked and cannot wait to return!!

Thinking probably the 3rd or 4th week of October, whichever one fall break from school lands. We'll definitely stay on property because I want to take advantage of ME and EMH. The new Art of Animation standard rooms would be cool, will have to check into those. Or I'd love to try for Wilderness Lodge, just not sure I can swing it this time.

I plan on MNSSHP for sure and DS has already requested breakfast with Stitch the next time we go. I may do some looking into the YES program to see what that is all about.

Anyone who has been there in October before: is it still warm enough to devote a day to one of the waterparks??

Make sure you also join us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/353374061381487/. Just request an invite and I will get to you as quickly as possible.

We were there last October (2011). Most days it was more then warm enough to hit a water park. There were some cool mornings due to a storm front that came through, but even those days had decent day time temps.

Welcome to the October 2013 "club". We will teach you the secret handshake later.

Can anyone tell me when or if there is a least crowded time in October to go?

OH MAN! I'm SO GLAD I found you guys!! Currently planning a trip for October 6-12, 2013. It will be the very first trip for DH, me and our 2 boys without any other family! Oldest DS will be almost 14 and youngest DS will be 9 - perfect ages! DH thinks I'm crazy for starting to plan this far out, but I'm obsessed with Disney! LOL As you all can relate apparently!

We LOVE October. We've been in July, October, November, December and January - but October is by far our favorite - smaller crowds and still warm! We'll be doing MNSSHP again - got to start our matching costumes this summer so they're sewn in time for next year. And the BEST PART.......we normally stay value - but this time....POLY BABY!!!! Can't wait!!

I'm submitting a friend request to our facebook page!! Thanks!!

I'm planning for October 2013! It's not official yet...but I think I can talk my DBF into it. He thinks I'm crazy for planning this far in advance, but he hasn't been in 10+ years so he doesn't quite understand. Plus, if it does happen, it'll be the first time I'll be going without my family and it will be the first time staying on site!
...AND the very first time I went to Disney World was in October 2003...so this will be like a 10 year anniversary for me! OH and it will be the first time I can drink in WDW (I'll be 21 babyyy!)
So I'm really hoping I can take this trip!

I'm planning on staying at AoA in the Little Mermaid room...(he's not completely thrilled with the idea. Tehe)
