Unfortunately yes, you'll just have to stay on top of it. If you're a regular on here though, you'll see it here before anywhere else. I always check the offers on DL's website about once a week when it's closer. For October, they likely won't come out until mid-summer at least, possibly August. You'll need to be on top of it like that because if it's out awhile and they don't have deals for the accomodations you booked (despite you already having a room reserved), they will not give you the deal. If they had say 1000 discounts to give on standard room ressies for the time frame of dates and you miss the window, you won't get a change.

I just booked my flights!! Eeek! They were $200 less than I have seen before so I booked them.

I was hesitating on booking them because at the moment, I am going through my first union contract negotiations at work. There has been whispers of possibly going on strike.....

Travel insurance doesn't cover strikes (unless I lose my job which is extremely unlikely) so if we do go on strike, I will lose the cost of the flights

Everyone think good thoughts that I won't go on strike!!

I've heard of park hopping but hotel hopping takes it to a whole new level.

Yay, I know! But we couldn't decide which resort to stay in for our first and probably only on property stay so I figured we may as well go for it and try both!

Hojo for the first night is just cuz it's cheap and its our driving day so we won't be there until after dinner time anyways and I didn't want to spend a ton of money for a hotel night we won't really get to fully enjoy.

We just decided on Oct. 5 - 12 at GCH! My DP groaned when I admitted I wanted to take our son to see Carsland this year (our last two trips were Disney) but she came around and is even excited. I can't wait for HM holiday! And I'm even a little excited to be there for Gay Days.

Do you know if it is any more crowded then because of Gay Days? We'll be there the 5th through the 8th, and I couldn't care less that we'll be there during Gay days except that I hate crowds! I understand that weekends are more crowded at DLR anyway, especially long holiday weekends, and I'm just trying to prepare myself. DS & I go to WDW in February for a reason!

We are going in October for a few days and for the Mickey Halloween party. This will be our first time going in the fall. Still booking our July trip so no dates set yet. Does anyone know when the halloween tickets will be selling?

I believe based on History, they'll be on sale for AP holders come May and I think someone said June or July for non AP holders. I'll look around to confirm.
