I think you are right. I'm guessing 100, 200, 300 and 700, 800, 900 are the busiest for ToT. Anyone agree or have other thoughts?

And I agree about the kids, too!

I agree about the well behaved children. They were all adorable.

I think some parents mentioned some loops being so crowded and the golf carts being so backed up, they just went to other loops.

We will be in a premium site but I have not listed any special requests yet. Any suggestions?

Hi Everyone!

I posted a question on the restaurant board asking about Trails End and ended up getting so many great comments on both the restaurant and the fun activities at FW that I decided to come on over to this board and look around.

We are not staying at FW but can we walk around and look at the Halloween decorations when we stop at TE for dinner? My teens would love to see the mini train and blow ups. We would not come for the trick or treating and Halloween activities for campers, just would like to know if non-campers are allowed to wander around and look.

Are you coming to the Fort this Halloween CDNCruiser? You gave such rave reviews that you convinced us fellow Doverites to go for the first time last Halloween but you weren't there ... lol
We loved it sooooo much, we are coming back again this year and bringing our friends!!

Of course! You might even want to try and catch the wagon ride if it is not full. If we are at our site and it is not during the trick or treating, I would be glad to take you for a little looping on the golf cart to check out the decorations.

We went for the Christmas decorations last year - look for an upcoming blog on AllEars.

But yes, we'll be there for Halloween this year! Oct 22nd to Nov 5th. We hope to get the 700 loop.

See you there!

Will we see Trick or Treaters at the Cabins?

Hi,

We have been to the cabins twice in October, but this is our first time for Halloween. My kids are going nuts! Will we see many trick or treaters at the cabins? I want to send down candy before we leave, so any advise would be nice.

Best Regards,

Stephen

Woo hoo! We are booked for the 26th through the 3rd. Got @ three workable days to get the golf cart back together as it is in @ 10 pieces right now. Pulling out the Halloween decorations and looking forward to an enjoyable time with the family. Can't speak for the traffic at the cabins, but I know the loops get a little nuts. Have fun.
