Beth, you rock!! You are a goddess!! Thank you sooooooo much for taking the time to: A) search for and find that TOTP thread from 2008 in the first place, and B) post all those pictures here for us! (They were basically going to waste sitting in an old thread, so this is a way to get them new recognition.) How awesome! It really helps to have them here in the Halloween at DL super thread, where people can get a clear idea of what kinds of stuff happens at the TOTP and what it looks like at night, what kinds of costumes people wore, the candy etc. We hit the mother lode today with your pictures and the ones that you dug up!! They are an excellent representation of Halloweentime at DLR!!

Seeing all the little details in the pictures and noticing some things I overlooked makes me realize that I have got to have some alone time the next time I am at DLR (which will, hopefully, be during Halloweentime). When I am busy with people the whole day, it can be tough to concentrate on taking as many pictures as I would like to take and I miss a lot of things. Only when I am by myself for a while do I really get on a solid roll with the pictures.

Thanks again!

ETA: Uh-oh! My reply here bumped me to Page 13, and the pictures Beth posted are not visible here. So everybody scroll back one page to see all the great stuff that MommaU4 just contributed to this thread!!

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!!!
Those photos are fantastic, aren't they?

Let me see what I can find for you. If I recall, I think it was HydroGuy that posted threads with info from MiceAge about the new Toy Story games coming in June and also the update on when World of Color is supposed to begin. I will try to find those HydroGuy threads for you and post the links here (it may take me a while, but hang in there!).

PattyO'Green - It didn't take me as much time as I thought. It turns out the World of Color thread started by HydroGuy was right on the first page of this forum, and it only took a minute to find the Toy Story thread by HydroGuy!!

My pleasure. I can post about Halloween all day long.

We do need a thread for everything Halloweentime, including everyone's dates and maybe even costumes. It's so fun to plan along with other DISers.

Wow, ya'll turned up some great photos last week while I was off practicing my espanol in Mexico!

Thanks for sharing a whole 'nother slice of the TOTP. I think I would be like a PP -- too busy checking out everyone's costumes to see much of what Disney put up!

Yes, Beth came through with some great pictures for us - not only her own, but also the ones from the TOTP thread 2 years ago! Those were all a really valuable contribution to this thread!!

Welcome to the Little Halloween at DL Super Thread That Could! Hopefully we can get some other DIS-ers to share their fantastic Halloweentime pictures with us here as well. It is definitely more difficult to find people who have lots of Halloweentime photos to post than it is to find Christmastime photos - but I have faith that we will get more contributions soon. Stay tuned!! And be sure to post some of your Halloweentime pictures for us in this thread when you return!!

Wow all the pictures are amazing! I have some DVC points left and might have to take a trip in October to see all the fun Halloween decorations and the TOT party. Since the dates aren't released yet and looking at last year days, I should be safe to book a trip with a Wed, Thurs and Fri to make sure we can get tickets? It also sounds like mid October may be the least busiest? I will have the whole month of October off so dates and days really don't matter. I just don't want to go during the peakiest time since we have a toodler! What would you suggest for a good time in October? We usually go to DL in Feb, May and Sept the least busiest times!

I go every October usually always starting on the monday of the third week of the month since there's nothing going on that week; no fall break, no gay days...just a normal week. It's never busy during the week, weekends starting Friday are insane though

I agree with iKristin. And I think you are right - going to DLR right in that mid-October time frame (after Columbus Day) would be good, and make sure to include as many mid-week days as possible. Wed. - Fri. should be good. The weekends will be more crowded. It was busier on the day I went last year in October than it was on the Halloweentime weekends I went in 2008 or 2007. So I can only imagine this year will be the same or even busier, considering World of Color is coming soon and Toy Story Midway Mania is getting new games.

Thanks for joining us here in this thread. I am anxious to see more photos from people!! So anyone out there who may be lurking, please come forward and share your DLR Halloweentime pictures!! I will have to go back to my photos and see if there is anything I could scrape up to post. I think I covered everything that I had, but I will check again. (Note to self: take many, many, many more photos next time!!) I also thought of a couple of other DIS-ers I could ask to contribute, so I will do that.
