I'm going with my 2 DD's who are 13 and 8 from September 30th- October 6th. I can't wait. I have taken my dd's separately to DLR for their 7th b-days but never together so it will be exciting for us. My mother who as never been to Disneyland will also be joining us. This is even more exciting because she is going to fall in love with DLR!!! We are staying at the Disneyland Hotel and planning to do the Halloween party one night. Along with all the other fun stuff DLR has like Character Breakfasts, World of Color and all the parades. We are going to do one day at Universal Studios because we have never ever been there and figured it would be a good time to go and see it!!

I can't wait to see DLR all decorated for Halloween. I have been at Christmas time and it was magical then so I can only imagine the Halloween with be just as magical!!

We are in talks about planning an October trip with two other couples who also happen to be going to DL this month but at different times. Very excited since I will also be going in the end of June with my family!

Gay days is usually during the first week of October, so I always avoid that week due to crowds. Columbus day is Monday the 8th of October so that's the three day weekend to avoid as well

Gay Days are Oct 5-7 and Columbus day the 8th.

I've never been bothered by noticaeable crowds in WDW by GD but not sure effects in DL since it's so much smaller.

It tends to affect the crowds at DL quite a bit, last time I went during it was SUPER busy

We are planning a trip for this October as well! We had to cancel our trip last year due to an illness in the family but all is heading in the right direction now so we are really looking forward to this trip! It's been a long year....can't wait to get back to our Happy Place! We will be there from the 13th-20th.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is Gay Days?? I see that it happens to fall on the last day of our trip to DLR. I just want to know what it is.

Thanks.

I am planing a surprise trip for my whole family even the hubby! I chose the last week of October. I found a great rate at the DI&S across the street! I am going to open a separate bank account to start saving! Hopefully I can make it happen this year! I had to cancel our first Fall attempt last year!

Joining the group :)

Hoping to make our first DL trip this coming October! I've been to DW 20x, but I'm really excited to get to visit DL for the first time!

We're right now in the process of picking a vacation for this fall, and unless DH can come up with a better idea (doubtful!) we'll be headed down Oct 21st-25th.
Planning on staying at HoJo

Booked our trip Oct 11-15 we can not wait!! It will be our first trip to DLR pretty much our first family vacation ever. Staying at PPH our family loves Halloween and really want to see what DLR has to offer. Hopefully it will be some what warm but being as we're from Michigan 60 degrees is warm.

We are looking at going Oct 7 to the 13, however I have heard that week can be busy with schools out in arizona, so maybe going Oct 14 to the 20th would be better.

Either way, we are going in Oct.
