Anyone else see the irony of ANZACs heading nearly 10,000 miles to go see Air Supply play?

air supply, I saw them on foxtel the other night flicking Channels. I couldn't turn it off it was seriously car crash stuff. cheesy corny and way over produced and scripted.there's a good reason why the only play in the states, no one in Australia would see them. well no self respecting bloke!!!!!!


now hide in corner wearing flame retardant suit while the ladies light the flamethrower!!!

Lol. Like I said, I'm shameless. Epcot, Food and Wine Festival, and some free 80's music thrown in for good measure - what's not to like.

I would probably also go watch Starship if I wasn't at MNSSHP that night. I've had "We built this City" stuck in my head all morning.

Oh, we leave on the 13th so will see it in the morning, yay. But as we are looking at extending, then we will definitely see it! Won't be there for a party but it will be nice to see the decorations! We haven't been to DL for Halloween before, only WDW. Thanks for sharing. WAMUMOF4! Yay

Yeah, dates for the party are a bit different than what I thought they'd be. Fortunately, we are there on the 30th though (our first night at GCH), so will try to get tickets for that night. Does anyone know when tickets go on sale and do they get snapped up quickly?

I am not sure the Halloween super thread said they go on sale to AP holders and DVC members first and that it should be any time between now and June 10 Hopefully they will announce it soon!

We miss the first party...we fly out on the 30th . Luckily we didn't tell the kids about it. At least we'll get to see DL in all it's Halloween splendour.

That's a shame whilst we haven't been to a DL party yet we loved the one at WDW maybe you will get to do one next time and the park is amazing in its Halloween finery

We booked and paid for an OGT rate today for the cruise really wanted a VGT but with the falling $ I wasn't prepared to risk it any longer it's all beginning to feel a bit more real now

Congrats to all the Sep/Oct travellers for locking in plans in this falling AUD environment!

I agree. The kiwi dollar is the dropping also and it's so hard to know what to do.

On Saturday, I prepaid my cruise gratuities and put enough OBC onto my account to cover my drinks for the cruise. It'll be the lowest exchange rate I've encountered since I started booking this holiday about 8 months ago, but I'm worried it'll just keep getting worse.

On the good side, many of us are now under the 4 month mark. It's definitely starting to feel like we're on the downward slide.
