View Full Version : Where are you staying in Oct?

08-27-2005, 04:26 PM
We are going for a quick long w/e in Oct to attend MNSSHP, and was wondering if we made the best choise~
We are booked in Port Orleans French Quarter. Not very convient to MK & the party, but we are staying at WL for a week in Dec so the budget is a bit tight.

Which is your favorite resort for the fall and why?

08-27-2005, 04:35 PM
POFQ is my very favorite moderate! We are going in October and will be staying at OKW, our first trip since buying DVC! We can't wait! :goodvibes

08-27-2005, 04:43 PM
We're staying 3 nights at the Poly, then 6 at VWL in October. It doesn't really matter which resort you choose, you'll still have a great time at MNSSHP. If you're there in December, MVMCP is just as much fun.

08-27-2005, 04:45 PM
be at POP OCT 11 thru 18 and have MNSSHP for the OCT13

08-27-2005, 04:47 PM
Our favorite resort is the Dolphin, but since the discounts aren't as good this year, and we plan to go to WDW at least one weekend per month in October, November, and December, we are staying at the POP in October and November during the Food and Wine Festival. We may splurge and stay at the Dolphin in December for DH's birthday, as we did last year!

We do love the POP, though, and are thrilled to be staying anywhere onsite.

08-27-2005, 04:49 PM
Poly - We'll be there 10/23 - 10/30. I like Poly any time but in the fall I like the idea that you can see the fireworks from MNSSHP even if you don't go. :flower:

08-27-2005, 04:52 PM
I'll be at POFQ Oct. 15-18 and BC Oct. 18-23. MNSSHP on 10/20, Sweet Sundays on 10/16, and Lunch & Learn on 10/22.

08-27-2005, 04:54 PM

08-27-2005, 04:59 PM
POFQ Oct.20-24 I have recently fallen in love with this moderate resort, I was a WL devotee for the past 11 years, but it's been increasingly hard to get a good rate (at least for me) and I refuse to pay over $200.00 a night to sleep anywhere! You can't beat the WL for the convenience but POFQ is not all that far away either! I am still trying to get WL for Dec. but so far no luck in less I would like the honeymoon suite...........oh well I wasn't able to get POFQ for the dates in Dec. either so am stuck with CSR but will keep trying I just don't want to be left out of a room or offsite.

08-27-2005, 05:13 PM
We are staying at CR and going the last weekend of October. We chose there because it is close to the MK and we only have 5 days and 2 small children.

Have fun!! :)

08-27-2005, 05:14 PM
:confused3 I am not a trouble maker,I love disney and we go every year.I don't get to come in here hardly at all,so I am not 'hip' to all of the abbreviated initials used in these threads.Why does everybody use so many initials instead of just typing out the words?It really doesn't take that much longer to type them out.The more you type,the faster and better you get at it.It makes it so confusing to try to read these threads when just about every other word or two is done in nothing but initials.Some of us would like to come in here from time to time just to catch up on current happenings at disney;but too many initials kinda takes the excitement out of reading the threads.
Yeah,I know that there are gonna be some of you that will bash me for writing this,but hey,maybe some of us out here in cyberworld,would like to read this stuff and not take so much time trying to figure out what yall are saying.Think about it. :grouphug:

I am 55 years old and travel several times a year. I often stay at 4 star hotels.
So the deluxe resorts do not have anything special for me.
All Star is like being in the heart of the Magic and that is where I want to be.

We will be at my favorit resort --All Star Music October 3 thru Ocyober 11.
We are going to MNSSHP on the 7th.

It is quieter because more couples stay there. stop.

I have visited WDW more than a dozen times with the 1st time in Oct. 1971. It was brand new. I've stayed at FW, Disney Inn, a few the of Hotels on hotel Blvd., CBR and the towers at the Contemporary. I got to see the MK from my balcony at the Contemporary and I'm happy I got to experience it once. I just prefer the All Star Resorts.
The theaming is pure Disney.
My last 4 visits have been at The All Stars and this fall when we take dd,dsil, and our grandson age 3 we are staying at the All Stars Music. I thought about AKL and even though we can well afford AKL I just wanted Alex to experience the Disney Magic :wizard: at the All Stars on his first visit.
Where else can one find Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse at the pool?
Have a great time at Disney!

It's A Happy Day

We are at the Animal Kingdom Lodge from the 5th - 9th Oct before we head south for the coast.
DH didn't really want to do Disney again this year so I had to meet him half way with only 4 days. Believe me I have crammed so much stuff in that he will have wished we had 7 days - that'll teach him :rotfl2:
We are doing MNSSHP on the 7th.
Hope you all have a great time :wave:

09-12-2005, 05:07 PM
Thanks everyone!
I think I will quit bugging my TA and keep what we have then! ;)

We have stayed at Dixie Landings in the past...just a boat ride to DTD. Sure you will enjoy it.

We are staying at the Yacht Club.. second time around there. We consider Beach Club our home, but wanted a little quieter spot this time.

We will be staying at POR. October 20 - 30. MNNSHP on the 23rd. Have stayed at the French Quarter before. It is very nice. We like it becasue it is a smaller hotel with less walking to the pool, eating and buses.

Made last minute reservations this year and were not able to get into POFQ...all booked up.

Have a great time!! :goodvibes

We are staying at OKW Oct.15-20 and then Vero Beach for two nights. Our favorite hands down is BCV and being close to Epcot but did not have enough vacation club points to do that this trip so will save up next year. Can't wait to see my 2 year old's face when he gets to Disney World. He has been there 3 times already but does not remember it.

09-13-2005, 10:50 PM
We will be at ASMO 9/30-10/6.Just me an hubby.We wanted Music, our favorite ,but it was booked.We have stayed at all of the Mod's and all three allstars.Hubby likes allstar Music and Movies better than the mod's. He say's it's like he is in the parks all the time.Grandkids like the slides on the pools at the mod's,even though we have an in ground pool /with slide at home.We have never stayed at the Deluxe and I don't think I would even if I had the extra money because we spend all our time in the parks.Only 17 more days.Can,t wait.

09-14-2005, 12:05 AM
ASMO Oct 3-7
We stay in values b/c we are NEVER in the room, except to sleep, and can't see spending so much more for that, plus the kids love the theming of ASMO.

09-14-2005, 02:56 PM
We will be going to Food and Wine, so we opted for a moderate fairly close at which we had never stayed. Since we have stayed at all of them Coronado was our ultimate choice. Can't wait, only 3 weeks and 2 days!

09-14-2005, 02:59 PM
But I don't care, I'm going to WDW for the 1st time ever!! :cool1: :cool1:

Offsite was by far the cheapest, since we are splitting it 3 ways, my total cost for a 5 br, 3 ba private pool home for the week was $325.00!! Some day, when I'm completely debt free (even house) hopefully we will go back & do it the completely magical way, to stay on site!!

Shelly - have fun everyone! :wizard:
