Bashed on FB for planning ahead...

We are planning a trip the week of Halloween to WDW and Sea World. I had posted a question on the Sea World Orlando FB page asking if there was anything special going on ON Halloween. Based on their 2012 Spooktacular dates, the parties are only on the weekends of Sept & Oct but nothing specific mentioned about actual Halloween. Someone commented on my post...

Seriously! It's not even May and you are making plans for Halloween? Hey, SeaWorld, is there anything special going on for New Year's Eve? I am just trying to plan ahead....LOL


She is from Orlando so obviously does not have the issues with PLANNING for a WDW vacation as the rest of us but her comment really honked me off!

Ignore them!! Hopefully Seaworld will appreciate a guest inquiring about future plans and answer you. Let the haters hate. I say good for you for researching, planning ahead inquiring so you do not miss something you really want to see

I agree that the comment is really annoying. It really isn't that far away when you have to plan things like travel and getting money together for tickets to special events.

I begin planning about 1 year prior to a vacation. Don't sweat their comments, never hurts to plan ahead!

I always wonder why people take the time to post rude comments like the one you received.

Wow, wonder what they'd say about DW and I? Our next WDW trip isn't until the summer of 2015 and we've already been planning for a few months. I guess I'll have to tell we have to stop and what until it gets alot closer.

I mean really! How rude. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Hope you eventually get your Sea World question answered.

Ditto! Nothing nice, move on! I just stuck up for someone a minute ago on another post because I can't stand when people give totally unneeded rude comments to people just trying to help out! There is no reason to be rude when all of us are here for the same reason-to plan a Disney trip!! Ugh...

Since you could see her location, did you remind her that many, many people have to plan for months to get time off, to get good flights, etc etc? Maybe it could be a wakeup call for her to put her head in the mind of people who don't live in Orlando.

And wondering if they have anything for NYE is a good question; hopefully they'll answer her.


Maybe someday she'll plan a trip to Chicago, or to Seattle or Europe, and she'll realize that you do actually want to know what might be going on, before making nonrefundable plans.

They do it because they are sad pathetic people that have nothing better to do than hide behind their computers and try to make people they don't know as miserable as they are.

I hope you we finally able to get your question answered.

She's just jealous since she will have no good plans for Halloween or New Years.

WHA?? Planning for my vacations is what gets me through LIFE!

To counter-act the nastiness of that poster, here's some info. We live in San Antonio and had annual passes to the Sea World here last year. Not sure if Orlando will do something similar but I would think so. They have a Halloween event that they do all the weekends in October and a few in September (like you found out) as well as on Halloween itself. There are H-themed shows and trick-or-treating during the day and the the "scary" stuff opens around 4pm and goes until the park closes (here that was around 10pm but it might be later in Orlando). We didn't stay for the scary stuff b/c my kids are young but it looked cool. They also have bands that play spooky music on spooky stages. All together, it was a fun experience and my DD's got TONS of candy (not like the few pieces they hand out at MNSSHP...just sayin...)

Hope this helps! Don't let the negativity get you down!
