Yes, these weeks are typically really busy because of school breaks. I expect that they'll be very busy this year as well, especially Columbus Day week. But the good news is that it won't be typical Disney busy due to capacity restrictions, so there's that...I know for us 10/12-10/23 is fall break... our school calendar didn't really change at all.
As much as I would have loved the walk on ride days we saw in the summer, I cant imagine walking around outside for fun in Orlando heat/ humidity in the summer months. My family was upset about the Halloween party being cancelled are really excited about the trick or treating and haunted houses that were announced at Universal this week, so we have a new plan taking shape after a couple of days at Disney.Yes, these weeks are typically really busy because of school breaks.

We were there in July and again in August and, despite what you may have seen and heard, it really wasn't walk on rides. I mean, the wait times were really great for a lot of things but it wasn't just like you could walk on any ride you wanted whenever you wanted -- so don't feel bad that you missed out on anything because IT WAS REALLY HOT!

WELCOME!! This is us too! We haven't told anyone besides my two friends who travel like we do and have been on trains, planes and automobiles since C19.Joining this thread! We leave in 15 days for a quick- "not telling anyone we are going because we don't want to hear it trip".. Getting a little nervous about the ride wait times edging up since Labor Day. Anyone else? Just changed my Brown Derby lunch ressie to a Dinner so we can walk out of the 'empty' park after dinner - after 7 pm.. new experience for us.
We are your people, and we fully understand! I'm in the same boat, that I cannot believe that a little October trip worked out for us. I'm so flippin' excited too - for you - for me - for everyone on this thread!I'm so flipping excited I don't know what to do. I'm super excited. But I had to come and express my excitement to my DIS fam because my friends and family think I'm wacko for going to Disney as an adult. LOL!! But ya'll UNDERSTAND!! 38 DAYS UNTIL DISNEY!!
I know! right!!??Is it me or is Disney starting to air a lot of commercials?!?!? I was watching the Hallmark channel and started seeing numerous commercials. Tonight I'm watching ESPN and guess what? I'm seeing Disney commercials. Please stop airing commercials until after I return from my vacation. Thank you. You may now go back to your regularly scheduled program.
I hope you will let us know how the Edison is. We have a ressie there the following Sunday night. i haven't seen any reviews of it since reopening.I'm a little concerned as well. I haven't purchased my park tickets yet. I don't know why. SMH! I'm trying to decide if I'm going to make this a resort only visit and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinners at OKW and Disney Springs. Or if I'm going to take the plunge and go to the parks. And I'm laughing at myself because now I understand just resort visits when for years I didn't "get" just resort people. LOL! Like momma always said, "Never say never". LOL!! I'm 90% sure we'll go to the parks. Heck, I'm the cruiser who had a day stop at Coco Beach and paid out the wazoo to go to Disney for the day thru the cruise line. LOL!!
My plans including parks are below. Let me know your thoughts. I found dinner or lunches for everyday because last year when we went to DS for dinner/lunch we couldn't get in anywhere without a 2+ hour wait. So I said if nothing else we will have some place to eat every day. LOL! And I'm also aware OKW, Olivia's cafe is supposed to be pretty tasty. So I'm sure we'll dine there as well.
10/17 Saturday: late afternoon arrival day to OKW, dinner at Maria & Enzos
Sunday: AK, dinner Edison
Monday: Epcot, dinner Ragland Road (I couldn't find time anywhere else. After eating through the world we might cancel this reservation.)
Tuesday: MK, Dinner Morimoto Asia
Wednesday: DHS, Dinner Boathouse
Thursday: Free day probably AK AM to ride FOP just one more time. Late lunch Wine Bar George
Friday: Free day, early lunch 11am Chef Art Smith, close the day out by visiting MK one last time to see the castle and walk Main street.
Saturday: Departure day
Not costumes, but DS14 actually wants to resurrect our Halloween shirts that we wore in 2016 and 2019! I kind of couldn't believe it when he said he wanted to wear them. So if you see Mom & Max please say hello! (I don't know why the photo is wonky, I am not good at attachments!) Please post costume pics, it's all part of the fun!!!So who is planning to wear a costume to magic kingdom? I finished my outfit today.
