Rode Pirates 13 times hahaha, love that ride and it's the perfect ride if you don't want to wait in line you can hop in line for that and it's usually only 5 minutes or so
You should definitely be fine then, with 8 days to play - even in the most crowded week in October, I think you could still get everything done in that amount of time.

Will you have a MM during your stay (I don't know if you are staying onsite, or if you are using Hoppers, as opposed to an AP)? If you have the MM, that is the absolute best time to get on Peter Pan.

You sound like a girl after my own heart - I would certainly ride POTC 13 times in a row if it were possible!! You're right - the line, even when it is long (and it was very, very long in December) moves so fast that you don't ever spend too much time standing in one place at all. That has to be one of the fastest-moving lines in DLR, even if it looks horrible. Even when we see there is a huge line, we well get in it anyway, because we know we will still be on the ride in 15 minutes, tops, and if there is little to no line, we will be on it in 5 minutes. I have never done 13 times in a row, but we did do, I think, 4 times in a row one night when fireworks were going on and no one was in the POTC line. Love that ride sooooo much!!

I have an AP so no MM for me. I had MM last year though but we used it to hit up Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy since we only got to ride it twice that trip

Time for some bumping action!

Someone else out there must have some more Halloweentime-related photos. Remember, they don't have to be perfect, frame-worthy photos, and they can be of anything Halloweentime at DLR-related, including seasonal food, merchandise, TOTP stuff, characters in costumes, special photo ops only available during Halloweentime, park decorations, special Halloweentime entertainment/shows/fireworks, window or store displays, DTD stuff, DLR hotel stuff, etc.

No pictures here because this October will be my first halloween trip! I'm really excited to begin planning... I've forced myself to wait until I get back from my trip in a few days though!

How exciting that this year will be your first Halloweentime trip!! And there will probably be even more things added to the festivities for 2010 so who knows what's in store?!! Well, the time will pass quickly for you - I mean, Halloweentime will begin in only 5 months at DLR, so it will fly by.

I remember when Halloweentime seemed sooooo far away last year...I had all the time in the world to try to get a trip together, I thought. And then, poof! All of a sudden it was here! Where did the time go? It will be here in the blink of an eye - and then you can add all of the wonderful pictures I know you will take to this thread when you come back too!

I think Halloween in general is becoming more and more popular.

I'll share what I have. Halloween is my favorite holiday. And I love Halloweentime at DL! These pics are some of the ones from a TR I did back in '08 if anyone wants to take a peek: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1988356

I'll just post anything Disney/Halloween related:





































It's fun to see different characters out at DL and during the Halloween party at DCA.




Our candy from the trick or treat party.











To be continued.......... (I've reached the image limit)

Pics continued.........





I love how the theming is carried out everywhere...... and I mean everywhere you look. From the horse's behind, to the napkins. They think of everything. LOL






























I saved the scariest pics for last.... The crowds that were there during Halloweentime!! lol
Actually, we were there a couple days, and it was only this bad as it got closer to the weekend. I think this was a Friday. It does seem to get worse each year though. But it's so fun, don't let that scare you off. Just plan carefully and anyone going during Halloweentime will have a blast!

Yay!! I got the e-mail alert thingy that told me someone had posted here and saw that it was Beth!! Yay, Beth!! Woo hoo! Funny, because I just thought of you in relation to Halloweentime the other day, when PHXscuba mentioned that maybe someone in the TR section of the board had some photos. I was trying to remember other older Halloween-specific threads from the last two years, so I could either integrate them into this super thread, or ask the OPs of those threads to post their photos here. Anyway, I remembered that you were managing the TOTP thread 2 years ago, and keeping up the list of who was going to attend the TOTP, on which nights and in which costumes. So I thought, "Hmmm...I wonder if Beth took any photos..." But then I totally forgot to mention it to you!!

And then yesterday, I was thinking, "Hmmm...someone has got to have some photos of the candy they got at the TOTP." So you read my mind, because here you are with a candy photo!!!

Anyway, those are such amazing pictures, Beth! We really needed another dose of color here. It is much easier to find folks to post in our Christmas super thread because people have more photos of the holidays to share than they do Halloweentime pictures. As always, whenever anyone posts a new round of pictures, I always see things I haven't seen before. There are quite a few details in your pictures that I overlooked or hadn't noticed.

Thanks so much for coming through with some gems for us - I am sure everyone who has been following along on this super thread really appreciates it!

ETA: We needed a simple photo of the pumpkin muffin with the Mickey pumpkin head stuck in it here in this thread, since that is one of the food staples of the Halloweentime season at DLR, and no one had posted one thus far. You came through for us!!

Glad you liked the pics.

I was thinking of that Trick or Treat party thread I had going back then, but I don't have the subscription to it anymore. I do recall there were some fun party pics and some really neat costume photos on there as well.

Hmmmm, I'll have to see if I can track it down, and see if any of those pics are still posted. (You know how photobucket stuff can get deleted)


Edited to add: I found the thread. http://www.disboards.com/showthread....or+treat+party
I'll have to see what pics are still left on there.

Here are some guests we saw. This year, Kelly (Daisuke on the boards) is going dressed up in some *** Play thingy.





This couple looks sooo cool!


Tigger was hilarious in Hollywood Backlot. He was acting very much the rascal during pics.

I could have stayed for a long time listening to these scarecrows. They were so funny, and entertained the crowds. Here they are taking the pic "with attitude."


Even Kelly took a pic with them


And the scarecrows were besides themselves when they saw this family approach. It was so funny.



Chip & Dale


Jasmine & Prince Ali went as themselves in a small, but cute parade.






The park is all purty


The princesses daringly (I say daringly because of all the villains around!) greeted young guests.









There were so many characters to greet the guests. We saw Wendy & Peter Pan when we were at Pacific Wharf playing games.


And here's Donald


I almost had more fun watching the people dressed up than the actual park.















CMs


Probably my favorite costume. Sooo cute!


-----

Note that Kelly took all the pics. I have a habit of saying that I took a pic, and she ... um... always proves to me that SHE took the pic! lol

And here's Princess Geri... I mean Lesley with two CMs. There were so many CMs dressed up - so cute, and I have to say their smiles were infectious. How could you not have a good time with them.




There were projections on many facades that just added to the atmosphere.




Lesley (Tink33), Cheryl (Toocherie), and Chris (Califgirl) ready for fun after a nice dinner at Storyteller Cafe.







Now this is just kind of weird. The girls pointed this out to me.... Innocent looking little cherubic statue




But when you look closely at it .... BUGS!




More atmosphere -- plus add all the music around -- so cool




Dancing the Hokey Pokey --- Princess style




Dancing in the streets -- they played a lot of fun music, & when they played High School Musical songs they handed out pom poms -- lol... Of course, we got some, too.













Lesley got really excited when she saw the pirate. She thought, "Now this is the kind of Treat we're talking about.!!"




Soon as Chris saw what was going on, she got right in the action!



That pirate really didn't have a chance!!


Here are some kids doing crafts.


Entrance to Pirate Wharf.




Dancing in the Hollywood Backlot -- It was funny watching Sully dance to Thriller.




And dancing on Sunshine Plaza. There were a couple of teenage girls with Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum outfits - they were so cute, and they danced the whole session. They were having fun.




Part of my loot. When we were on Pirates Wharf we were told to grab some loot, and then to go shake our booty -- lolol.

We went to the characters first and were able to do the villian line twice, and mickey & Minnie once in about 30 minutes. By the time we left the lines were at least 45 minutes long. The other characters we caught walking around.

We went to all the dance parties and had a great time dancing with the characters. They really got into it when the kids would dance.

We also rode Soarin and Monsters Inc.

We saw the parade and dd got to Dance with Woody. We also hit all of the trick or treat stands once.





Our candy haul:

We also went last night and had a blast! I was happy so many people knew who I was hahah! I was Jadis from Narnia and DH was a Renaissance Man.

We started a little late since we stopped in at Jazz Kitchen for dinner, but it seems to have worked for us. The line was not too bad to get in and we headed back towards the Pier we stopped at any candy station with a short line and then walked on CS, from there we went to TSMM which had a 10 minute line, when we finished the ride the line was at 30 minutes and held the rest of the night.

We got candy and I ate lots of carrots and apples, cause I am weird like that We rode Soarin which was supposed to be a short line but due to some issues we had a 20 minute wait.

We headed to Monsters, TOT, got lots more candy, more candy and more candy, went back to see one of my friends who is a CM, went on CS again, decided to skip TSMM because of the long lines, rode the Zephyr for DH, sadly MM was closed while we were in line.

We ran into Cruella who was nice enough to stop and take a picture with me. She is always my favorite! She asked if my fur was faux, I told her "Of course not it's seal", she told me "I was evil" and "I told her of course I am!" She played with me a bit more as DH pulled out the camera. I love the little girl in the back of the picture checking out the "Villians"

We saw some great costumes and just had a blast, even DH who was not sure about the whole thing! Though I wish there had been a few more villians though we got lucky and found them at end. I so hope to do it again next year!

Evil Queen, DH and I


Me after close at the Villians Display


Cruella and Jadis


And one of my favorite Family Costumes of the night


In case anyone is wondering we left with 11.5 pounds of Candy



I think that is the last of them from that thread. I remember I had tried to keep that thread updated with links on the front page, so rather than searching the entire thread, I went with whatever was in the links. Some were deleted of course after all this time, but it's neat to revisit those pics and see all the fun costumes!

We're thinking of going the last week of September. Just weekdays, no weekends. I hope for low crowds!

I saw mention of new games to TSM and World of Color opening. Can someone link me to a thread that talks about all of the new things coming to DCA and a list of the dates? I'm curious what will be happening when we're there.

Thanks!

And the photos are fantastic!!!
