Question!

Hi Guys! My family will also be there from Halloween until Sunday, it's our 2nd trip to FW. We tried to get a golf cart from Kenny at Tee Time but he is all out. All of the other golf cart rental off site companies (which are 40-50% cheaper than FW) have told me they can rent to us but we need a car with a hitch to meet them about a mile away, which we don't have. A golf cart for us is a must and I'd hate to shell out 240 to FW for 4 days. Any other places that you know of that can deliver to the campsite besides TeeTime?

We will be at the fort 10/26 - 10/29. Are all the halloween activities (trick or treat, golf cart parade, etc...) done only on Halloween the 31st?

There may be a few Halloween related activities but the trick or treat and golf cart parade are usually always on the 31st

Help, Us too!

We will be at the Fort for Halloween this year! This is out first BIG trip with our travel trailer (we are pulling over 15 hours with a 2 and 4 year old!!!) Can anyone give me some guidance of how to get around for trick or treating in the fort, will will probably be in the 1600-1900 loop section. I have called Disney several times with no answers... Any help would be wonderful!!! Do we go to all loops or will that be too crazy?

There are several loops close by. I'd just walk and remember to bring a flashlight. I imagine you'll have all those little hands can carry.

All I know for certain is the golf cart parade is the 31st at 6pm. They usually have sign-up at the Bike Barn that day.

We went for the first time when our children were 5. We got WAAAY more candy than they were used to at home! We walked from loop to loop and they had a fantastic time. From your location I would hit all 4 loops that are there together, then if your crowd is up to it I would head towards the 1400 loop (it is a double and the next one closer to the water from your location) and then the 400/500 and 300 loops (those 3 are very close together). 100/200 are right on the water and just a short walk beyond 300 on the sidewalk. You could keep going towards 700, 800, etc. but by then you might have had enough candy! You'll be able to cover ground more quickly if you have a golf cart, our first year we walked but since then we have had a cart. But if you don't have a cart no worries, our kids do a lot of walking on the loops anyway due to the foot traffic, we just hop on the cart to go from loop to loop.

Look for a post on this thread or elsewhere on the board as to the location of the Halloween train campsite, it is really cool and our kids love to watch it and get candy from the train!

Have a fantastic trip, maybe we'll see ya there!

That's what I get for calling the FW front desk this past Sunday and asking a direct question. The frightfully perky girl who answered the phone also gave me different times for the site judging. I LOL at myself. Happy to have the record set straight.

Photofreak posted the full schedule for the 30th and 31st in a separate thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3011907
