    This is the place to rant, I've read so many post about horrible trips with family members, this past oct my mom went with DD and I and we had a blast and in march we are going again but this time my dads coming along and should be a blast again, but overall a Disney trip should be fun, you pay enough money for it not to be fun, so if there's something that is keeping your family from Disney fun, gotta do what ya gotta do

    They all went with us last year as well. It was a great trip, but there was no fussing because a friend gave us their points to use and everything switched over nicely to a OKW 2BR. The only drawback was we ended up going in July instead of Oct. That and the sleeper sofas are NOT comfy. The kids were good, my neice only complained once or twice! (She's used to getting everything exactly as she wants it) My youngest didn't really have any meltdowns (sensory and anxiety issues) We just kept him away from all characters and planned mid-day down time. The car ride back was my least favorite part because they all (exp my Mom) rode in my van. No van this year. So 2 cars will be a good thing, too. I'm just all stressed out about the room situation right now.

    We are going for five nights in mid to late October. I thought October 17 - 22 but that may change a bit depending on my daughter's school schedule. Why can't they release them sooner!!!

    We plan to celebrate my daughter's 8th birthday at Disney. This will be her second trip, the first was December of 2011 and my 5th. I don't know who is more excited me or my daughter.:banana::banana::banana:

    I am sure this has been asked a TON of times, but I am an obsessive planner and am really struggling over something... We have never been to MNSSHP... My kids will be 12 and 11 when we are there in OCT and since we are staying at Bonnet Creek, our budget would open up a little room for us to go to the party... Is it really worth it if they are not really into the trick or treating? Both of them have stated that they are not "into" waiting in line for characters on this trip (although Mickey is happening for Mommy!). Neither of them really like candy, so that is not a big draw. My daughter LOVES Halloween, so I think she will enjoy it, but my son isn't really into dressing up anymore either...

    Sorry for rambling on.

    Hey! Oct. 8-15 here, and OKW as well. Maybe we will meet at some point...I'll be with 13 to 18 other family members/friends! (It might be easier to look for the crazy lady ripping her hair out while drinking with both hands at the Gurgling Suitcase... :rotfl2: )

    Looks like we are going October 26- Nov 2. Things could change. Sometimes my DH wants to add a cruise. I would like to have a Villans Birthday. We have decided POFQ, but we can't book until next month.

    Do your kids like parades and fireworks? We love the Boo to You Parade and Hallowishes. They also have the Villain mix and Mingle show at the castle. I know you said that your kids weren't into meeting characters, but at the party you have the opportunity to meet some of the villains who are never out. The lines for the rides are also really low unless you are going on on near Halloween. (We've only been in the beginning of Oct.)

    Actually, I think the Villains alone would make it worth it for my daughter! She is very into them! The parade wouldn't really interest them, but the fireworks would be fun! And with the lines being lower, that is a nice PLUS!

    Thanks for the response. :)

    We have decided to go this year :yay: Not sure what week, either 10/12-19 or 10/26-11/2. If we go 10/26-11/2 we will spend our anniversary (11/1) there.

    Any idea when the MNSSH dates will be announced...if they haven't been announced already.

    Can't wait to really start planning this :yay:

    I think MNSSHP dates won't be released until after April - my TA mentioned that they won't be out until after my 180 day mark (for ADR's) which is in April.

    You could look at last years schedule for MNSSHP dates. I think they usually have parties on Sundays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
