We've gone in October too.
It's not usually that busy and is cooler than summer, so a great time to go.

Hello Connie! Welcome

Your daughter has amazing hair. I love the color. Glad your trip is in Oct it will be cooler than going in May. May temps can reach 90 + and add the humidity to that YUCK..

Please feel free to ask us and questions.

Hope all goes well for your Daughter.

Thank you for your thoughts and wishes i do have a couple of questions lol
I live in montreal canada i was wondering what the weather is like in florida the month of october?
Since we are going to mnsshp i was reading that they do give you a bag but i am wondering if its big enough,we cannot trick or treat this year cause amanda will have her scheduled treatment,so we will make the most out of mnsshp so i wanted to know if i should bring bigger ones?

I am so sorry Amanda is dealing with all this. Please tell her we think she is amazing and beautiful!

The bags you get are plenty big enough. You can trick or treat as much as you want. The lines appear long but they move really fast. Find a place for the parade really early. We planned an hour ahead and all the good spots were gone.

Weather in Oct is great. It's warm without being sweltering like it is in Sept. I hope you all have a fantastic time.

Give Kids the World is an AMAZING place!!! I've only ever seen the outside in person, but most Wish families go there and have posted pictures in their trip reports. Absolutely AMAZING!

There is another place that some organizations use. I think we've had one or two Wish families stay there, so I don't know much about it. (or what it's called)

Yay!! Hopefully it will stay away this time. I'll keep you guys in my prayers to say healthy and safe for your wishes trip. October weather varries from hot to rainy to cold. There really is no way to predict it this far out. Se've had had 2 tropical storms already and I'm hoping this is not a sign of the hurricane season to come. Make sure you pack a couple of shorts, long pants, and light jackets just in case. Have a great trip and keep us updated.
