    Hi everyone, I am planning a trip at the end of Oct.2020 to DW for my step-daughters birthday(7yo). We have been during Christmas and it is amazing. Any suggestions of Hotels on the grounds and activities that are a must for this time of year? THANKS

    Boo to You, Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for stopping by with a great question.

    October is one of my favorite months to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. Magic Kingdom is decked out in fall decorations, and there are many fun offerings throughout the Theme Parks. My absolute favorite event is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This special ticket event is offered on select evenings in Magic Kingdom. This party allows the whole family to join in on the Halloween fun. With trick or treating, a special castle stage show, and awe-inspiring fireworks display, this is an event that is not to be missed! If you are feeling up to it, you can even dress up for the occasion! I highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance!

    During your vacation, you will be able to indulge in many delicious and unique dishes at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. There are over 30 different Global Marketplaces that offer endless selections of cuisine and beverages. During this event, there are special seminars, culinary demonstrations, and even a concert series! If you are a foodie like me, this event is not to be missed!

    One of my favorite Resort hotels is Disney’s Pop Century Resort. This Resort hotel transports you through time. The fads of the 1950s will surround you through the 1990s. Resort hotel rooms have been recently updated, and Disney Skyliner Transportation is ready to whisk you away on an adventure to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

    I hope that you enjoy visiting the Walt Disney World Resort as much as I do this fall! Please stop back and let us help you with more of your vacation planning questions!

    Have a magical time!
