    Hoping to make our first DL trip this coming October! I've been to DW 20x, but I'm really excited to get to visit DL for the first time!

    We're right now in the process of picking a vacation for this fall, and unless DH can come up with a better idea (doubtful!:rotfl:) we'll be headed down Oct 21st-25th.
    Planning on staying at HoJo :banana:

    Booked our trip Oct 11-15 we can not wait!! It will be our first trip to DLR pretty much our first family vacation ever. Staying at PPH our family loves Halloween and really want to see what DLR has to offer. Hopefully it will be some what warm but being as we're from Michigan 60 degrees is warm.

    We are looking at going Oct 7 to the 13, however I have heard that week can be busy with schools out in arizona, so maybe going Oct 14 to the 20th would be better.

    Either way, we are going in Oct. :cool1:

    I was originally planning to do a solo to Orlando but have recently decided to head back to Disneyland in October with my son. It will be our first Halloween trip to Disneyland :goodvibes

    We are planning a trip for the week of Halloween, 11 or 12 of us in all! We are waiting to see what kind of deals they will have for Disneyland Hotel. It will be most of our 3rd or 4th visit, but my aunt and cousin's first! Hoping to make it super magical! =)

    We are planning another Oct. trip! I really wanted to see the Christmas decorations, but Oct. just works better for us. We saw the Halloween decorations last year (and the last 2 times we were at WDW) so they are what we are most used to :lmao: I am unsure if we will do the party this year- we went last year and it was SOSO crowded- I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would, and didn't enjoy it as much as the party at WDW.

    So excited, though! I didn't think we were going to be able to go this year! Right now I think we are going to try a Hojo kids suite instead of staying onsite (unless an amazing onsite deal comes up for the fall)

    Count us in! Just booked airfare and hotel (Best Western Plus Park Place Inn).
    Mutiple visits to WDW, but the first to DLR.

    I guess I'll have to change my signature!

    Flights are booked! Heading west Oct 14th-19th! So excited I can't wait! Now just to book the hotel and buy park tickets. Hotel will be booked any day, but I'll wait on park tickets for awhile.
    Anyone know if DL typically raises park tickets in August like DW does?

    I'm just waiting to see if we get our date request for the One More Disney Day sweepstakes. If we do, then we will be there Oct 6-11th, with my lime green Mickey ears!

    Going Oct. 20 through Oct. 26th! Hooray! We went to DL for the first time last year and fell in love with it. WDW vets (46, 47 trips)...spent Christmas there.

    Got great SW airfare nonstop flights which sealed the deal for us.

    Hope to see some other lime green Mickey carriers during the week!

    Where is everyone staying? We're DVC'ers but probably not using points on this trip.

    Can't wait :banana::banana::banana:

    We are also planning our first Halloween trip for Oct. 14-20. Hoping to stay at the DLH. It will be our first splurge for an on site hotel. We're very excited! We've had three prior visits in the spring, so this will be a new experience. We love Halloween at our house and will definitely go to one of the parties. Just hoping that the rumors aren't true that both BTMRR and Indy will be in refurb while we're there. Regardless, we'll have fun. We always do!

    We got our itinerary back for the sweepstakes and were able to get the dates we requested. We will be there October 6-11, at the DLH.

    Oh, I hope those rumors are not true. I would have some very disappointed kiddos. :sad1:

    Just booked Hojo's Premium 2 Queen room for the 4th (my daughter's 19th birthday) through the 7th (they're completely booked the 3rd, so we'll probably stay somewhere in LA but further away for cheap and head to Anaheim super early) at the Retro Rate. I can't find anything cheaper (so far, I'm still checking) on Harbor. And, I'm apprehensive about not staying at PPH. We love it, especially the view of CA and WOC. So, I'm hoping the view of DL will make me feel a little more...in the magic. Anyhow, I'm so excited, I can't stand it. And, I think this might be the year for APs for us. A close friend got them for her and her daughter and I think my daughter and I will ask for them for our graduations (her HS, my AA).
