Just booked yesterday
Grand Californian October 25-November 3
We went to DLR for the first time in 2012 and fell in love with the original. Went back to WDW for a vacation and a a few day trips the last couple of years, and it’s just not the same as DL. We cannot wait to get back there! Keep us posted!
Ahhhh you’re welcome!!! Sounds fun!I hope you get there! I have never been to a halloween party so wherever it is it will be new to us! Too bad we have to wait sooooo long for all the dets!
Two parties lucky you! Mother son trip sounds really sweet, have fun planning!
Okay I understand now...it will be interesting to see what happens. We also aren’t really interested in the treat lines, pretty much the shorter lines and people watching.
Yay!!! Happy planning!!
We are looking forward to the two parties. My son is giving me the two tickets instead of gifts throughout the year. We have been planning this trip since we got home July 2017. Hubby went with us that time. We decided to do Halloween time because he has never seen it decorated for Halloween. He did go as a baby. None of us have done the parties. I have been during October though, but no parties. I just found out one of my friends and hairstylist will be there too. We will meet up for lunch one of the days there. October can't come soon enough.
Is there any reason to think there would be a substantial difference between the first two weeks in October (9/30-10/3 vs. 10/7-10/10)? I'm sure the crowd levels are uncharted territory at this point with SWGE, but I'm curious if there's anything else going on those weeks that I should be aware of. Thanks!
Fall breaks are usually the 2nd week or so in October, before or after Columbus Day. So the 7th-10th are busier than the end of Sept to the 3rd typicallly.
We love October at DL!
Currently booked for the weekend 10/18-10/20 at VGC, but I have every single weekend waitlisted now, we'll see what the waitlist gods say. Haha
10/7 - 10/11 for us. Staying across the street at the Fairfield. One MNSSHP party and a lot of Galaxy's Edge time for us.
So excited! We just booked Disneyland Hotel (a childhood dream come true!) for Oct 19 -25. Hoping to do a Halloween Party! This will be a post-cruise stay. The cruise is a Halloween on the High Seas! Vacation of a lifetime! ....did I say SO EXCITED!!!
This thread shows school breaks and other events etc https://www.disboards.com/threads/2...-school-breaks-and-dlr.3708938/#post-60251200
That's very helpful. Thanks!
We will be going as we do every year. Believe it or not, no plan yet. Ive looked at hotels but a lot of them don't have rates available yet. Also, southwest flights aren't available yet either. We usually go the weekends of Oct 18th as that works with my work schedule and am going to try to go to two Halloween parties this year but we will see about that...lol. So looking forward to the Halloween time season at DL.
Hello all- we are planning a big family trip 10/30 thru 11/3. There are currently 9 of us on board for this trip with another 2 possibly joining. I have reservations at Staybridge suites but may be changing that as I keep looking for deals on suites. We are excited because his trip will be:
My 50th birthday 11/1
Dapper Day 11/3
and the first trip for our granddaughter will be 1 by that time
We have not been in the park for a Halloween party since 2010 so we are hoping to grab tickets for the 10/31 party. If not we will just enjoy the festivities of bring in the parks. Very excited!
Oh my goodness! Sounds like it!
Big family trips are always fun! Have fun planning!
Already made a change- we changed our reservations from the Staybridge suites to the Paradise Pier. Decided we wanted to get a bit more of the Disney Magic on this trip.
Oh wow! We loved our stay at PP! We stayed there on our first trip to Disneyland!
