Seems like the forecast always shows about the same when I plan a cruise, then voila, it gets better and the weather is great! Praying for that to happen for this trip...

Thanks to all that continue to post on this thread! It is Awesome!!!
Don't let the forecast scare you. We have been having some rain almost every day. It rains for a short time, cools things off a bit, and dries up quickly. Chances are you won't even know it rained.

Keep in mind it can rain for a little bit each day in FL, but they are never sure when it's coming so they have to show rain. Last year, our trip in the fall showed rain every single day. It rained once but the forecast never changed. I think you'll be ok

Just booked my trip for Nov 29-Dec 4th for my third time at POP, with Free Dining! I'm very excited, and can't wait to see AoA completed, as when I was there in February it was still being constructed.

does anyone have the movie schedule for October yet? We will be arriving Oct 12th and leaving the 15th but we are only going to park for MNSSHP. We just thought we would make a weekend out of it since we only live about 3 hours south of there.Looking for some other things to keep the kids occupied on friday night also all day saturday and sat night and morning of sunday (go to MNSSHP sunday night so EXCITED!!!!). This is also my kids first trip to POP we stayed at ASMU about 1 1/2 ago. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Not sure about the movies, but I would definitely hit Downtown Disney during your trip. It has that Disney feel without being in an actual park.

So looking forward to staying there again next year and doing so without the kids. It's going to be so AWESOME!
We had 5 in August and booked connecting rooms ... it was great having the extra room ....we had FD promotion ...you will love POP, having the refurb and the AoA to visit as well!!

Yes!! For the first time in 7 years!! We are so excited. They guys have their costumes, but I don't.

I wanted to book Pop for Fri-Tues, but the rate for Saturday and Sunday was over $100, even with passholder rate (we paid $66 2 weeks ago)?? So I booked the new passholder offer for just Sun-Tues at $75!!! We'll be driving back and forth from home the other days to experience the F&W Festival and Franken Weenie Weekend at DTD.

Movie schedule should be posted around 10/2 .. so in plenty of time to know your choices ... Agree with smitch425 .... go to DTD ...often times there is entertainment the kids might enjoy... Saturday perhaps swim, resort hop, check out the grounds, have a bite to eat and check out the pin trading boards (we love pin trading!!)

Fort wilderness have the campfire with Chip N' Dale, it's free, and you can bring or buy smores there .... not sure but they might offer a haunted hayride ... perhaps check out the Wilderness FAQ thread, it's got a great hostess who will be able to give you the scoop!!

Check out AoA Sunday so you are not doing a lot of running around on your Halloween party day ...you can eat lunch at AoA come back and get ready to hit the park at 4pm!!

Thanks for the great info!!!! Yes Sunday I was thinking we would stroll over to AOA and check it out. Have and early lunch there and then head back to room so my 2 year old can nap seeing how we will be in park late... How about the Boardwalk anything to do there with young kids. All my years of going to Disney I have never been to there.

At night there are street performers. I don't know what time they come out. Perhaps someone on the Boardwalk thread can help you. We've seen performers swallow a sword, juggle, do magic tricks, etc.

A really fun family show is at POR at the River Roost, Bob Jackson aka Yeehaw Bob puts on a great show. It's very interactive so the kids do not get board and the whole audience ends up getting sucked into the performance. He is a genius at audience participation!! I think he performs Wed to Saturday, but you'd have to check on that.
