We will be at POR, Oct. 4-12, fun fun! I am hoping for FD, but I wouldn't worry about there not being a discount at all. If they offered 30% room discount to summer months I think October will at least see that too.

I'm at POR Oct 7-13. Sounds like that's a popular week! As it is our trip is not quite in our price range (we usually stay value but decided to splurge for our Disneymoon) so a discount would be fantastic! If not, we will just have to keep saving up.

We did the same thing! We were planning on driving, but got an amazing deal on airfare. However, they only fly a few days per week. Excited for more time and not driving, but stressed about added cost.

We are going to POR from October 5-12. Hoping for at least 30% off if not free dining. Wish they would announce soon!

It looks like we are all going to be quite the crowd over at POR!!! We will be there from Oct 6-13, staying in a RR. So excited! We are hoping for free dining too, but our plans won't change if nothing comes.

Our dates are 10/2-10/7 at AofA LM room. I hope I posted this right.

Thankfully, I think BOG is starting to lighten up, because pretty much everyone I've seen (including myself) has been successful getting an ADR. Ours is for 6:20 on a MNSSHP night (that we are not attending the party).

Finished up all my ADRs this AM, got everything I wanted (except BOG) at the exact times I wanted.

Now I just need to decide should I book for our dates, Oct 19-26 or wait for a discount. If there is only RO for that week can I had the tickets and DDP? Going with my sis who has little kids and almost all our ADRs are characters meals so it's will be worth it I think even if we have to pay for it.

Do you other October folks already have a hotel ressie made?
Thanks.

Did you get a BOG, just not the exact time? Or couldn't you get one at all? Ours was 20 min later than we had wanted, but I figured that was pretty good. We are booked with a room/ticket package, but will add dining if it is free. (Actually, we probably will add dining anyway because it works well for us to have everything paid for ahead of time.) My understanding is that you can change your package to add things at any time. The only sticky part might be taking something off at the last minute.

No BOG at all, but will keep checking. Could only make ADRs each day for 180 so maybe that made it more difficult to get that one. Also looks like MNSSHP is scheduled 4 or 6 nights we are there and I assume that limits reservations after 7PM those nights? If we can't get and ADR for BOG will try at lunch time.
We have 3 girls age 2-8 and got CRT lunch which we REALLY wanted for them.

We have our room reservations made but holding off on tickets and dining until we know what's going on with discounts.
