I know...don't you hate having to consider other people's feelings on a trip? It's so inconvenient! Just kidding! That's actually very nice of you to be thinking of what your boyfriend would or wouldn't like when it will be your special day, and I am sure he will appreciate it!

Cool! I am glad our little Halloween superthread is starting to pick up some steam and that people are noticing it. And thanks to the "panel" (as PHXscuba so appropriatetly labeled it a while back) that continues to share their photos with us and answer questions. Hopefully we will get some more folks posting photos of all things Halloweentime at DLR - there is still lots to be seen in the way of TOTP pictures, food items, other merchandise beyond what I posted photos of a couple of pages back, displays, etc. It seems like when one person posts photos, that inspires other people to post. So everyone keep 'em coming!

I figure it is a good idea to try to keep this thread as active as possible because, chances are, many people will be just starting to plan their Halloweentime/Fall trips around now.

So it looks like I may, possibly, be getting a Halloween trip after all, Sherry! It's not definite yet, my dad can't plan things out that far in advance, but he's expressed interest in doing a father/daughter trip this October. I'm thinking it would probably be in our best interest to go (if we do) the last weekend of September, but we'll see. I'm a little nervous because if it was up to him we would plan the week before we go and then I would think we wouldn't have much as far as options in hotels.

I'm going to be paying a close eye to this thread. I love seeing everything!

Since we decided to splurge and upgrade to DAPs, we will be making a trip in either late September or October to see the Halloween theming. I am very excited!

Thanks for the info..

Thanks for the info for TOT and the link to what happened last year. So does DCA have a different entrance then DLR? As we are buying a 5 day hopper pass then we could buy TOT tickets for a different day so not to waste one of our 5 days? We are planning this trip around my husbands school schedule so excited to kow there will be some added things happening!! Keep all the other little tidbits of info coming!!

Yes, DCA has a separate entrance.

And you don't need a park ticket for the party, so you can use your 5 day ticket and then do TOTP on a sixth night. You won't be having access to DCA before the party will start though, I think this is different than WDW.

Both Vala and I posted photos earlier in this thread (particularly Pages 1, 2 and 3) with Villains and other characters (both in the parks and at the TOTP), and some of those include Vala's great photos of the characters dressed in their Halloween costumes! Be sure to check them out!

Cool! Yay! I hope it comes through! (Crossing my fingers) Yes, even if you have to miss the TOTP (because that always starts one week after Halloweentime begins), you will see get to see 99% of all the Halloweentime fun on that first weekend. Your dad will just have to realize that he has a very responsible daughter who knows how to coordinate a trip and who needs to make plans somewhat in advance, and if you wait until the last minute you will run out of hotel options! I mean, people do cancel at the last minute - it happens - and so hotel rooms sometimes open up, but you don't want to be stressed in the week leading up to the trip about where you will be staying.

I'll be curious to see if you like Halloweentime as much as the holiday season or any other time of year, or more, less, etc. I think you were at DLR for the holidays before, right? The Christmas/holiday season, I think, will always be my favorite time to be at DLR because it is just so magical all throughout the Resort, but Halloweentime is my second favorite time. It is not magical and as extensive in the same way as Christmastime, but it's really really cool. And this year DLR will probably add even more things to the Halloween festivities...so I hope it works out for you to go!!

Yes, my photos should cover pretty much everything about characters in Halloween costumes.

The list of characters in Halloween costumes as we've seen them is as follows:

DLR: Mickey as vampire (or whatever the pinkish tuxedo is supposed to be), Minnie as witch, Pluto as vampire (only sign is a violet dog collar), Goofy as skeleton, Donald as pumpkin (seen only in 2009) and Chip & Dale as cop and robber (seen only in 2008).

DCA (the candy corn farmer attire is something we only saw during Halloween season, so I will count it in too): Chip & Dale, Mickey, Minnie and Goofy - I think I have posted pictures of all.

During the Halloween parties Mickey and Minnie will appear in orange versions of their costumes at their photo stop, and it 2008 we saw Donald dancing in farmer attire on Sunshine Plaza.

Great info - love the years included. What about villains? I noticed that Captian Hook, Cruella, Snow Witch and Queen of Hearts seem to have been out in 2009. Any others?

Maleficent was out briefly at the Villains photo spot in Fantasyland (which is where my 2009 photos with Captain Hook and Queen of Hearts were taken, as you can see). Jafar was also at that spot for a while, and I think the Wicked Queen from Snow White was there for a bit too. I didn't see them in 2009, but I think some of the Villains in my 2008 Halloweentime photos - Don Karnage and Ratcliffe - may have been roaming around at the TOTP. Jack Sparrow was at the TOTP in 2008, and they brought him back in 2009 for the TOTP only. I think I heard that the Evil Stepsisters from Cinderella were out again at the TOTP last year, and they were definitely there in 2008.

I don't think there is a tremendous difference from one year to the next in the characters that appear - I even remember seeing Goofy in his skeleton outfit back in 2007 - but I think maybe they might change after several years. So whoever is there in 2007, for example, may not be exactly who is there in 2013. But from 2008 to 2009 to 2010, it will probably be mostly the same bunch.

You are counting Jack Sparrow as a villain, Sherry?

Great. And I managed to miss it during 5 days. I did hang out in Town Square for hours hoping to catch them again, and they kept appearing without costumes.

2008 had the Hyperion Theatre closed, so the villains did hang out in that area in DCA, and some were wandering DLR throughout the day. 2009 they had their own photo stop near It's a Small World and we never saw a villain apart from there and the party.

2008: Brer Bear and Brer Fox near Splash Mountain (I heard that they were still there last year), Cruella and Queen of Hearts all over the place, Hook at Town Square, Snow White's Evil Queen near Animation Academy and at Hyperion Theatre.

Hyperion Theatre also had: Ratcliffe (Pocahontas), Frollo (Hunchback of Notre Dame), Snow White's Old Hag, Queen of Hearts, Don Karnage and Prince John.

The Villains Stop at the party had the Evil Queen switching with Lady Tremaine and the Stepsisters. Cruella and QOH were roaming around the party, I think we saw Bowler Hat Guy from Meet the Robinsons too.

2009: QOH, Cruella, Jafar, Old Hag, Hook and Evil Queen were at the Villains Photo Stop. This was the week before Halloween, and the Photopass Photographer I spoke to said we met everyone who was out this week.

For the party Lady Tremaine and the Stepsisters were switching with Cruella at the Villains Photo stop. The Evil Queen was switching with Snow White at a special photo stop near Animation Academy, but I guess this was a special one for the Snow White Anniversary and I am not sure if this will be back.

During the party we saw Ratcliffe, Queen of Hearts and Bowler Hat Guy roaming Bug's Land. There may have been more villains there, but that place wasn't very well lit and because I was on an ECV I didn't venture too much there.
