Thanks, I'm so excited! We go to WDW during Halloween time each year. (we moved from NC to WA two years ago) It never occurred to me to go to DL for Halloween fun! I was able to get the ET rate for Hojo.

Hi Sherry,
This thread has gotten me seriously addicted to going in Oct/11. How are the crowds the first couple days of the TOTP?? Am planning on going to DL the first week of Oct/11 and going to the TOTP towards the end of my stay (am going for 9 days for my sanity break). When I return home I'm going to have to cook a turkey dinner (CDN thanksgiving), so am counting on DH to buy all the supplies for the dinner, and if he doesn't its going to be an interesting dinner. Have a great day everyone!

Can you believe Halloween is less than 6 months away?

My DDs just got their dance costumes for their recital next month and DD8 said, "well, I guess this is what I'll be for Halloween!" She is a fairy with a blue dress, so maybe we can just make her the Blue Fairy if I add a wand!

Besides giving this a good BUMP, I also wanted to tell any DLR newbies NOT TO FRET over park hours not being posted for awhile longer. It will be end of the summer before we see hours posted. For a look at last year's park hours, check out this website's cache of last year's schedule. It should at least give you a rough idea of when Fantasmic will play (mostly weekends) and basic park hours for different times of the month. (DCA will probably be different with the World of Color show.)

It's even closer than that, my friend! It's less than 5 months away!! IF the expected September 24th date is, in fact, when Halloweentime begins, then that means it's only about 4 months and 3 weeks away, roughly!!!! Now think about how fast the last 4 months have passed. It was just January - the start of the new year and the new decade - four months ago, and here we are, already in May. So September/Halloweentime will be here in no time! And we should probably get the full agenda and list of Halloweentime attractions, etc. by late June or early July, I would think. Not much longer to wait at all!

Trish - I missed the TOTP last year, but I went on its opening night in 2008, and it was quite crowded. It was totally sold out. I think the first night always sells out pretty fast. But, its only as busy as the number of tickets sold, so it's not like the crowds keep growing through the night. Once it's sold out, it's sold out. It will be so exciting for you to go!!! I can't wait to see the photos - even if we have to wait until 2011 for them! I am sure they will be awesome!

I hope it will go by quickly! I just booked the HOJO earlier in the week for September 23-27th and adjusting my countodwn from the summer made me groan. I went from double digits back up to the triple digits! But if, sticking with the schedule of the past couple of years, it is the start of the Halloween season than the wait will be worth it. I'll be counting down the days every morning!

Too bad I can't actually go in October. The TOTP would be so amazing to do. But as long as I get to see the decorations, I think I'll survive.

I've renegotiated my Solo trip with DH (gave him an extra 4 days on his union training course in return for my trip this year), and if his boss clears the dates may be heading to DL this year instead. Will find out over the next couple of days if I can go this year. If I do the kids are going to be royally PO'D with me (picture a boiling pot of water with my 2 DS running around it with arrows pointed at my head). Hope DH boss makes up his mind before the screaming cheap airfares disappear that I found with Westjet. Have a great day! If I get it, will post when I've got the airfare and hotel locked in.

I think the TOTP tickets go on sale in July or August. Does anyone else out there know any differently?

You mean if you go this year instead of next year, you will still be going around Halloweentime? Well, hopefully the children won't hunt you down and tackle you, but you do have to take advantage of the cheap airfare if you can get it!!

Jazz - What will be interesting and unique is that you will be there for 'the transition.' If DLR sticks with their usual scheduling and doesn't pull a fast one on us, and Halloweentime begins (officially) on Friday, September 24th, you will be able to see the difference between what is up and around on the 23rd and then what has gone up overnight, ready for the 24th!! Of course, I expect that a lot of the stuff will already be up on 9/23, much like what happens in November when DLR preps for Christmas. Little things go up here and there during November, all the way to the holiday season start date. Probably most of it will be up - I'm sure all the seasonal food, window displays, store displays, etc., will be up by when you arrive on 9/23. But I wonder if any of the cool pumpkins will already be out on the 23rd - at the Round-Up or on Main Street. Will any of the Candy Corn already be up in DCA, or do the mysterious Disney elves all come out and work hard overnight to transform DLR into a Halloween wonderland?

I think dates were announced and tickets were available to AP holders and Disney Visa holders in mid may. Open to everyone in August.

ETA: I was right. Just checked last years MP updates and it was in the May 18 one!!!

If everything works out, I will definitely be keeping an eye out. It would be awesome to ahve some 'before' and 'after' photos. I remember a lot of the seasonal treats being out when I was there earlier in the month last year (yummy photos they made for). A co-worker of mine was there for the transition last year although the first full-day was also her last day in the Park. She totally wasn't even expecting it, and sought me out to tell me all about it when she got back. I'll have to ask her again what she remembers being out the days prior.
