Ya they better let us know soon cause I'm going to be a VERY angry guest is that is the case. I've spent over 3 grand on this trip and then I don't even get to be there unless I spend even more money? I don't think that's right I'm a new AP holder so if the tickets are cheap enough I'll just buy them for those days but I'm still not gonna be happy about it...They just need to keep it at DCA.

This is to Belledozer and any other BCers (I have not figured how to put her quote in my message). I am from BC also and going down Sept 30-Oct 15th. We also got a great seat sale, saved about $600 all together. I look forward to experiencing Halloween at DL and DCA!

This uncertanity is driving me bonkers!!!!
Thank You!
I'll add my name to this "petition." Only been to WDW so the fact that I want to do a trip less than 6 months away to DLR and NOTHING is finalized driving me crazy

Not a good dancer but have some nice DIS moves to contribute to the information boogie!

You can add me to the list as well!

We've been to DL many, many times, but never with the Halloween decorations up and we've never seen the Nightmare Before Xmas overlay on the HM (the main reason to go). I've booked the last few days of Sept, but will cancel completely if the decor/ride is not up and running... (DD has a few days of school vacation that week, so I can't reschedule).

I really hope we find out soon -- I called yesterday and was told they may not announce it until July!!! Let's hope that CM was really, really wrong!!!

You guys are so cute, joining in on the DLR Halloweentime Information Boogie!! Belle Ella started a new dance craze! I have always been particularly fond of this creepy guy - - mainly because I can chuckle at his bizarre dancing style here on the DIS, but if I were ever to encounter a man who moved that strangely in real life, I would run far, far away!!

Anyway, I'll make him my dancing icon for Halloweentime Information Dance purposes only!
We want info!!!

So...while we are all waiting for that elusive Halloweentime information...does anyone have anymore DLR Halloweentime photos to share with us, just to tide us over?

I've never been to DL at Halloweentime before, and I was hoping some of you could answer a couple of questions for me...

When will it start???

Well, seriously, other than the start date and the plans to move it all to DL from DCA:

-- Are the ticketed parties worth the $$$? Can you tell me a little more about them?

-- Is there anything else "special" going on during that time???

TIA

3Minnies1Mickey - Yay!!! Pictures!! Your family is so adorable!!

Thank you so much for posting them!

I love love love that Halloween float, I think it is? It is a float, right? Or is it a platform of some kind? The one with the Pumpkin lollipop and swirly sticks on it! Whatever it is, we missed it in 2008. That is so cute. And your nighttime pictures came out way better than mine would have come out. That's why I had to use PhotoPass - at least I had a shot at getting decent night shots with their cameras!!

See, when we went in '08, the crowds around Halloween Minnie and Mickey were so enormous that we didn't even stop to get photos. No way my friend was patient enough for that. I am shocked she even waited for Jack Sparrow and for Woody. Seeing your photos, I know for sure I want pictures with Halloween Mickey and Minnie whenever I go to the TOTP again - this year or next!!!

I think the Halloweentime dates/agenda were released last year in July as well, but the TOTP tickets apparently went on sale before the Halloweentime schedule was announced, so Disney must have known the dates for the TOTP first, I assume. That leads me to believe they probably just had to finalize all the little details of Halloweentime so they could go forth with the date it began last year (which was 9/25, I think). This year, because everything is all topsy turvy with the WoC madness, they may be trying to figure out whether or not to start Halloweentime on 9/24, as we expect, OR they may do what they did in 2007 and start it even earlier.

I'd be very interested to hear what everyone who has done the TOTP really thinks of it as well. I have only been to the TOTP one time, in 2008. For me, because I don't have kids who want to go to the TOTP, I am only looking at it from my own perspective.

Honestly, I thought that the TOTP would be interesting or fun enough for me to do every other year, maybe. Possibly even every few years. I didn't feel it was something I necessarily needed to do each year if I had to miss it...meaning if money were no object at all, I would probably do the TOTP each year, no problem. But otherwise, when money is a concern, which is the case most of the time, I can stand to miss the TOTP every now and then.

When I went to the TOTP in '08, the tickets were $30-ish, I think. However, this year, seeing that it will be held in DL, most likely the prices will hike up quite a bit. On the one hand, I am intrigued by the idea of the TOTP being in DL (that is, only IF I plan to attend it this year). If I do NOT plan to attend the TOTP this year, then I am annoyed that my DL hours are cut short on Friday nights because I don't necessarily want to go over to DCA to deal with WoC just yet. It depends on what exactly DLR has in store for us for this year's TOTP and if it looks really exciting, but I am not sure if I will think it is worth whatever crazy amount of money they may want to charge for it. I'll have to play that by ear.

Hopefully you have had a chance to look at all the wonderful photos & links posted in this thread to get a really good idea of what things are happening at DLR for Halloweentime and the TOTP. I would imagine this year would be very much the same sort of thing, except now all the shift has moved over to DL and seemingly away from DCA, and there may be an extra thing or two thrown in (like maybe a new parade?).
