    Made my last payment on my camping site at Ft Wilderness yesterday, could have paid it all when I booked but for some reason I didn't. I was really hoping to add an extra day on the front side but it doesn't look like that is going to happen as the place seems to be booked solid.. Magic bands are done, dining reservations are done. Now I am doing routine maintenance and upgrades to the motorhome till the FP window opens.

    Hi! New here! I am visiting October 6-13 and staying off site at Liki Tiki Village. October 6 is my 40th Birthday (Epcot celebration!) and October 13 is my niece's 7th birthday (MK for her!). I'm so excited! We have ADRs done (Le Cellier, Be Our Guest, Tuskerhouse, 1900 Park Fare). This will be my third visit as an adult (May 2015 & May 2017), but first in October and first time to the Halloween party. Part of the group is adults and another part is my sister's family (4 kiddos; 6, 4, 2 and newborn). Would love to explore any and all tips anyone wants to throw my way! :)

    Staying at POP October 19-26. May go to MNSSHP on 10/21. Still trying to decide on that one. Still trying to get flights. Boy are they expensive :(. I am not sure if I have ever been to WDW in October. We usually go in September. Looking forward to see how the Skyliner works.

    Our arrival date is on a Sunday and I was hoping to add Saturday to our Ft Wilderness reservations but after looking 900 times it's not looking like it. I then thought we could drive all the way down and stay at the Shades of Green for one night, but they are booked solid. I guess I will just book a campsite in the local area.

    Re-coated the RV roof 2 weekends ago and washed it this past weekend. I get more and more excited as the days slowly tick by. Still a ton of stuff I want to do before our trip.

    Overall it’s a good plan, but some of your FPs won’t work due to tiering.
    Sept 27 - you won’t be able to get FP for both character spot and Frozen , both are Tier 1
    Sept 28 - picking all of those FP up at MK is doable, but will definitely take some work.
    Oct 1 - you won’t be able to get FP for both SDD and RnR, both are Tier 1. Same thing on Oct 4.

    I thought they changed RnR to Tier 2? Didn't know about the character spot being Tier 1. Thanks for the info. Definitely will pick frozen over that.

    Hi there! I will be traveling to WDW solo from Oct 19-26....and can not wait!! I'll be staying at POP which is an old friend. :hug: This trip is a gift to myself for doing so well in my first year of college....at the age of 46! I got the highest average in my program and I am so proud of myself I just had to celebrate! Coming from Niagara Falls, Canada and the exchange rate is pretty high right now, I wish I could afford a moderate. I had originally booked POFQ but I just couldn't justify the price plus an added 35% in exchange, so POP it is. But, as I said, we are old friends and I am very happy to see the renovated rooms. Looking forward to planning with you all!
