Was hoping to go in March, but that's not happening. So September is my next target month. Fingers crossed for mid-month. Hopefully it'll be me and nDH (non-Disney Husband), but it may end up being just me. I'm not super into solo visits, but I NEED to get to DL in 2020.

    Congrats on your first trip! I hope you have a wonderful time! I'm hoping the same thing and wish to return to the resort again in September, but only time will tell at this point.

    So excited to go in September. We are staying at the 4 Points Sheraton (yay for Marriott points!) from Sept 27-Oct 2. It’s going to be me, dh, 4 kids and my mom. My dh has been to DL during Halloween time with his family when he was younger. But for the rest of us it is a first during Halloween time. We aren’t planning to do a party, but I’m so excited to see all the decorations and such.

    Last time we were at Disney was June 2018 and there have been a lot of changes since then. Can’t wait to see and experience all those changes.

    I keep hearing how busy Halloween time is though. So just a little nervous about that.

    I am really excited to hopefully see the Halloween decorations too if they are up early September. I've been at WDW a few times in the fall, but eager for a change up.

    Trying to do some 'planning. Sept is going to be a 'squeeze' for those of us who are sort of trying to avoid crowds yet are hoping that HM will have reopened from the overlay closure.

    Labor Day Sept 6 Monday.
    The CHOC walk anniversary 13th Sunday.
    Based on 2019, I'm speculating that the Halloween parties will start 15th Tuesday.

    After the parties start it'll be "Nelly bar the door" for crowds.

    This is one of my main concerns about visiting DLR for the first time. I would love to see HM and keeping my fingers crossed it'll be open after Labor Day WE depending on when the parties are!

    We are coming from Australia - me, husband, three boys 14, 9 and 7. The last time we all came was 2014, although husband and I have been twice since then. Our youngest was only 11 months old last time so he is super excited to see all the things that he only knows from the photos lol We've been watching lots of You Tube videos, which kinda takes the magic away but the two youngest have sensory needs so I need them to be familiar with the rides, and know what to expect to minimise any freaking out.

    We are staying at the Residence Inn Convention Centre and are only coming for a week - arrive 6 September and leave 16 September. We've got 5 day one park passes with MP and we are going to spend the weekend in LA (science centre, La Brea Tar Pits Saturday and Dodgers on Sunday).

    I think we will miss the bigger crowds of late September, but the trade off is we will miss the start of Halloween decorations, which is a bit sad.

    192 days to go!!!

    I'm just going by my own recollection, but I seem to remember that HMH opens around the 2nd Friday in Sept, which would be the 11th. The last time I was there in Sept, it opened on the 14th (2nd Friday) and we were there the following week and the parties started the week after (week of the 23rd). They've started offering the parties earlier nowadays, so I think the 11th is a good guess. At any rate, I can't imagine it'll be any later than the 11th.

    This gives me so much hope! Thank you! :woohoo:
