2010 it was HOT. So just watch the weather and plan accordingly.

Also it will be hurricane season so that adds an element of surprise to the equation.
Ok, I would like to get the 2006 weather please!!

Thanks for your input, that's why a PTR makes so much sense, you actually get lots of good advice from other posters!

I just hope the hurricanes stay where they belong: out on the open sea!!

I must confess: I forgot about October being more in the hurrican season than November when we changed our dates...

great, and thorough update on your travel. Awesome savvy traveler move there getting better seats when you saw the aircraft change! Suh-weet!

Still loving me some Lufthansa food. Best in the industry. They also serve a nice breakfast.

That's pretty amazing that your flights arrive within 5 minutes of one another! WOW! That's danged convenient!
I hope to get started with DLP during the weekend... I think what I will do is put pics together into albums thematically and then post a short intro here with a link to the slideshow. You really don't need to know how FP works at DLP and what we did in which order. I guess this way it becomes more of a picture book of or DLP trip.

I agree, Lufthansa manages to server some really tasty stuff even in economy. I would love to fly business or first class with them, just imagine how good that food would be...

New Ticker!!

I finally got around to make a new ticker for our trip! We liked the style of the DLP one so much that we kept it - just got different pictures from previous trips. A big thanks to Brook who provided the wonderful Boardwalk picture!!

And I am very pround that this is not only a custom ticker, but I also finally mastered the art to make it a direct link to this PTR!!

Love the new ticker ladies!!!

How exciting we get to start following along on the new plans so quickly! I used to live on the coast of North Carolina and it seems that September was the most abundant time for hurricanes. October seems to make for a busy Atlantic at times, but so many of those storms seem to turn and head north earlier or actually make a U-turn while still well out to sea!

If you girls haven't thought about attending one of the party nights yet, I highly recommend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. The parade and fireworks are so completely different, and just the party atmosphere is so much fun. I have gone 3 times-kids dressed up the 2 times they were with. One year we dressed as a family as the Peter Pan crew. We had fun that year, but I found I preferred to just wear a Halloween shirt. Pick a Tues or Thurs evening to do it, because the Sun or Friday ones are much busier with locals.
That is why I love October--Halloween party and Food/Wine Festival. And the weather is wonderful, too.

October is my favorite time of the year to attend Disney World, providing the "free dining" program is not occurring.

The weather is great (most of the time) and the crowds are light in comparison to most months. You can swim most days without being too hot or too cold. Halloween decorations are out which adds to the festival atmosphere. True it is hurricane season but it is rare that inland Florida has any real issues with hurricanes.

Sorry I did not mean to post that and run.

Like everyone said you should be fine but I did want to "put it out there" just in case you didn't know. I am going the beginning of Oct and out of all my October trips I have never been interrupted by a hurricane.

If sever weather does come, being on Disney property is probably the best case scenario. I hear they take good care of the guests and make sure you are safe and have entertainment even if you can't get to a park.

Ooooh, love your new ticker Magdalene. And you're only two weeks from ADR's? Lucky!!

As far as Oct. weather goes, we've only been once which was in 2010, the last week of October. It was fairly humid but sunny and gorgeous every single day! Come on, there's no way you're going to get stuck with another deluge like you did last January!

Plus, all of the MK was decorated for Halloween! It was so pretty, the fall colors look so lovely there. Are you planning to do the MNSSHP then? We absolutely loved it. Being there after hours when the park is closed to regular guests made us feel like vips!

Waiting patiently (or at least trying to appear so) for the DLP report. I hope it was a wonderful trip for you and Katharina.

Thanks for the reassurance about October weather! I think we aren't too worried about it. I just would hate it to have really cold weather (frost at night) again, but I hope that this won't happen in October!

Wow, V&A! I am kind of intrigued by that place, but I am not sure that I want to spend that much money on a meal... But I have read many wonderful reviews! I am sure you will love it if you decide to go.

That's interesting! I hope your theory will work for us. When I was in New England in early October 2008 we got some nasty weather thanks to a system which came up that way. Not pleasant, but still something we could live with. But this fits into your theory I would guess.

Ah, the Queen of Suspense!!! Nice job Katharina![/QUOTE]

I never realized that she liked to do that until we started to write our reports... Funny how you can learn something new about someone you have known for so long through posting a trip report!

Kate, thanks for another good October weather review!! I have heard from quite a few people who love that season at WDW. I am especially looking forward to swimming weather!

And so far it looks like no additional free dining for October I think. Which works great for me, even though I am sorry for those who are still hoping for a good discount to come around. That's why I love my DVC points, no more of that waiting game wether Disney will release some discounts at some point.

Don't worry, I always took it just as an informative post not meant to scare us! And it is always best to know about things that might be a problem.

I remember reports of when the last big hurricane hit WDW and how good they were in taking care of people. Also, I heard that the WDW resorts are really safe to be in case of a hurricane. I think the biggest issue for us might be that our flight could be cancelled/delayed do to planes not being able to land at MCO. So for this reason it is good that we booked with the airline where we can communicate in our own language and which has their main hub here in Germany. I am sure in case of a cancellation they would be able to get us to the US somehow and then send us on with a domestic flight through one of their Star Alliance partners.
