Hello all, been reading the boards the last few days and it's full of lots of fantastic information for a first timer so well done! I'm currently planning a US trip with a close friend of mine, we're coming over from Australia and it'll be my first time in the US, Disney, Universal..everywhere over there so I am veeeeeery excited!! The main reason we were coming over was for a cruise on the Imagination but I really didn't want to go alllllll that way for a 3 day cruise so we added in WDW and Universal to our trip and now I am jumping around excited to meet Donald Duck as he is my favourite as well as Mickey & Minnie! Our trip will be from Oct 23rd - Nov 4th and since we'll be over there for Halloween we've decided (or rather *I* decided ) we have to do the Halloween event.. 2 nights if the dates permit us too which was a ok with my partner as she likes candy so hopefully we can get tickets..does anyone know the general month when they are usually announced/released? The wait for October is going to kill me I think, I am super excited!
