October Happenings




Weather - Historical


Weather Underground does a great job pulling together displays and charts. For now we only have historical info to look at:

https://www.wunderground.com/calendar/us/fl/orlando/KORL/date/2018-11?cm_ven=localwx_calendar
Advance Dining Reservations and Fast Passes (ADR's and FP)

For those checking in Oct 1, 2019:
  • Advanced Dining Reservations can be booked on April 4, 2019
  • Fast Passes for onsite guests can be booked on August 2, 2019
  • Fast Passes for offsite guests can be booked on September 1, 2019
For dates other than 10/1, add (or subtract) the difference in days, or if your not into date math (who is?) here's a site to help calculate:

Club level guests (as of this writing) have the opportunity to purchase and schedule 3 additional fast passes which can be reserved up to 30 days ahead of the rest of the crowd. (Cost is $50/person per day, with a minimum purchase of 3 days.) Contact concierge for prices, restrictions and assistance.​

    Our DVC Angel just booked the first 7 days of a 9 day stay at Board Walk starting on Oct. 28, checking out Nov. 6. Next I look for a possible rental car then the South West flight, the planning is ALMOST as much fun as the actual getting there.

    Absolutely true! I love planning, although it can drive me nuts too :rotfl:

    I'll add your trip dates to the roll call.... it's all a work in progress.

    Just got the last day of 9 booked at Board Walk, Oct 28 - Nov 6. Already have a reservation at Sheraton Four Points for a Sleep n Fly at PHL, looking for a decent car rental, South West window won't open for quite a while but we're looking to book the first day the rates open. It's real now.

    I love that feeling.
    I need to get a countdown going for Oct for us, Dining reservations, FP reservations, I believe DVC folk even have a Midnight Magic event or two to look forward to.

    Thank you, I added this information. Seems so far off, but we know planning helps to eat up the time. Pun not intended. :D

    I hope I don't jinx myself by posting this, but we're booked October 26th-november 2nd. Split stay between the contemporary and yacht club.

    I'm on a quest to try all the resorts at least once and the contemporary is my last stop for the monorail resorts. We're going all out since we skipped disney this year. Plus we'll be celebrating our 5 year anniversary! We booked the tower theme park view room.

    Yacht club will be my husband's first time staying anywhere other than a MK resort! I guess I've spoiled him with his first 3 trips all being within a boat ride away from MK.

    In 2017 we did MNSSHP on Halloween, which was a nice treat but this time I think we're gonna do it earlier on our trip and spend Halloween elsewhere.

    I'm hoping to enjoy F&W more since we'll be so close and won't have to worry about switching monorails.

    I know my husband is excited at the thought of popping into epcot to get me my grand Marnier slush. He knows it makes me happy, which makes him happy. :lovestruc

    325 days!
