BCV owner since 2002. Bought on our 1st Anniversary cruise. Also own at SSR.

I do love the resort, but also love the other resorts, so it is very hard to stay there everytime.

When my DH and I went on our first trip to BCV in June it was so hot. I was finally able to convince DH that we should go in Oct. Here in Colorado my kids follow a modified calendar for school and have two weeks off for a fall break. I was thinking - cheaper points, cooler weather, and way less crowds. I was able to book BCV at the 11 month mark for our 12 day trip. Now I keep reading about Food & Wine Festival and how busy it will be. And DH who is on a huge fitness kick and doesn't drink wine says - he only wants to go to Epcot one day of our 10 park days !! Oh yeah and btw he also is telling me he doesn't want me to pay for Mickey's not so scary Halloween Party because he doesn't care if it has a special parade !! Will someone please help me calm down
How are the crowds at Food and Wine Festival at Epcot and other Parks? Weather ? Has anyone paid for the MNSSHP and felt it is something we couldn't skip doing once ? October is unchartered territory for me, freaking me out a little bit now.

Turtle31, October is one of my favorite months at WDW. The weather is usually warm but not humid. Perfect for parks and swimming. Evenings can cool off as you would expect.

Most parks aren't bad at all except for Columbus Day weekend. Epcot on weekends is the exception as it can be jammed. Evenings at Epcot are also busier as locals pop into F&W I think.

We haven't done the party so no help there.

We'll be there this October as well.

jade1, loving your photos as always.

F&W can be busy especially weekends like the PP mentioned. What we have done is start in WorldShowcase right at 11 and just keep on snacking. Takes a while before the booths get busy.

I love MNSSHP sadly we are missing it this year since they moved it to a late Sept start. If your DH doesn't want to go than just go without him.

October is a great time to go. I think your hubby will actually like the F&WF. It really is quite festive. Weekends are a bit more crowded as locals do go the the festival, so go during the week if you can. Have a great time.

BCV ROCKS

Going in May (can't come fast enough) for a boys only trip with 4 and 3 year old. Then go back in Aug (week before school starts) with my 7 yr old daughter. Then family vacation in November and adults only trip with our good friends in Feb. Hmmmmmmmmmm can you get sick of BCV? Well I'm willing to try and see if it is possible
