    I'm planning my first trip in 25 years to WDW for 2013, Oct 20 to 27.

    party:

    After a family trip to California fell through for this October, I decided to plan a trip for me to the Happiest Place on Earth!! I'm so excited with Food & Wine and MNSSHP, October will be perfect time.

    I'm planning on Poly if I can get a great pin code/discount and save enough. But I'm been also checking out the BC, BW or POFQ.

    pixiedust: Here's hoping for great discounts and lots of brown bag lunches!!

    Hi, I've just started thinking about Oct 2013. Probably for my DS fall break which this year is the 3rd week, so I'm guessing around the same time. I'm going to wait a bit before booking so I can see if there is a discount or if I get a pin code and to make sure of the date.

    I might do this trip as a suprise for DS, I tried once before. I was going to wait until we got ther but he freaked out about getting on the plane. He was 3 then so this time I might work. LOL

    I'm going to hope over to facebook and join the group.

    Hey fellow Hoosier! I'm also planning for Oct 2013 during fall break for DS, which will most likely be 3rd week too. A surprise trip is a great idea! DS will be in 1st grade next year & I might be able to pull it off. Since, I'm always talking about going back, he wouldn't know the difference!

    :wizard: Here's hoping for a PIN code or discounts! :wizard:

    We will be there October 20-26. I would like to stay a few days longer but I don't know if my DH will approve lol. We have decided to stay at BWV by renting points. MIL, FIL, and SIL is going with us as well.

    We just returned from our first trip to WDW! It was fun, but way TOO HOT!!!! We missed a lot b/c we just couldn't stay in the parks all day. :faint:

    So....I am looking to plan a trip for October 2013 to miss some of the heat, what are the temps like in October? Are waterparks still a good idea? Any tips for October?

    My son told me last night he wanted to go back. So what did I start doing today?? Start working on a trip. I am looking at probably the first full week of October. We would probably arrive on the 4th and leave on the 12th. He normally gets fall break in October, so I am planning on it again for next year. If not, we will take him out of school for the week.

    I'm also planning a trip in October 2013. DS(6) and I were there Feb 2012 and on the ME back to the airport, we decided we would do Halloween 2013 instead of February again.

    It will be our first time going in October, I'm really excited about it, we both LOVE halloween!! :goodvibes We'll be celebrating DS's birthday there as well, he was born 10/24.

    Still unsure about the dates, trying to figure out when they'll offer free dining. From 2011 and 2012 it seems it's offered the first week in October and then the 3rd and 4th week.
    We might be going 3rd week, spend his actual birthday there.

    Either staying at AoA or POP. I really want to stay at AoA, but am not sure DS will like staying in a Little Mermaid room. Lol!

    Am about to send a request to the FB page!! :goodvibes

    AWESOME! I was going to start one if there wasn't an October thread already. I'm planning on a WDW/US split stay, either October 19th-26th or October 26th-November 2nd. 4 nights at WDW, 3 nights at Universal Orlando. We'll either stay at the Fort Wilderness Cabins or the Polynesian with deluxe dining, (because we'll eat at at least 2 signatures), and this time I am 100%, absolutely, renting a car. I'm so done with the WDW bus transportation.

    We are planning on going October 21st-28th:). We will be celebrating my daughter's 4th birthday there (it's October 22nd). We are staying at the Contemporary with a Magic Kingdom view and I cannot wait. Hoping for free dining or some kind of discount if not we may switch to one of the other monorail resorts if they are offering discounts. Tried to join the facebook group but dunno if I did it right.

    I am hoping we get to go next year. Working on finances now. I am also waiting on my sons school calendar for next year. They normally get a fall break in October. However, just as sure as I plan, I will plan the wrong week. :furious: Then I will have to change it, risk losing our resort, you know all that fun stuff. Here's hoping.:wizard:

    I hear ya! My kids have had the same week for fall break for years and we had plans to go this fall. The school calendar was updated May and they moved the fall break up a week. Luckily being that far in advance, there was still availability where I wanted to stay. We went ahead and changed the dates to the next year though. I'm hoping the week I have booked is the right week for next year! I'm less concerned about the resort and more concerned about YES tickets getting sold out or us getting tickets and then the school schedule changes again.

    Hi everyone!!!

    I've already sent my request to join the FB group! Whoot!!!

    My girls and I have a trip planned for Spring Break 2013, but as time goes on, it's looking more and more like we are going to postpone until October. So, I thought I would come over and check out the Oct thread! :thumbsup2

    We have been twice during October (2003 & 2008), and LOVED it!! The weather is amazing, the decorations are supreme... and we have to do MNSSHP!!!

    Anyways - super excited to be here! :wizard:

    Woo Hoo!!! You found us. pixiedust:

    Hoping for free dining for y'all.

    As for us...our dates might change a day. We originally thought we'd get there Oct 26 and leave Nov 2. Now it might be Oct 27 through Nov 3. My DD25 is flying in, but she won't fly in until Tuesday Oct 29, and leave Sunday Nov 3. And while we're staying offsite at Wyndham Bonnet Creek, she and her husband (they're getting married next May) want their own room, so they may go onsite, probably at a moderate, and hoping for CBR which is very close to WBC. Good chance, they may end up with free dining.

    Anyway, today or tomorrow (probably tomorrow), we'll be at the 13 month mark. :) And some of y'all are probably at the one year mark already.
