Obrins At WDW October 2002

This was our first trip to Disney World during the Halloween season.  Debbie has joked that we our goal is to be there every season of the year.  We've been there in the midst of the summer, and in late and early spring, and even around the Christmas Holiday, but this was our first October trip.  We were there for during the second half of October.  We weren't there for Halloween, but did attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and that was quite an experience!  We also made it over to Universal Studios for their Halloween Horror Nights.  Overall, it was something special to be in this magical place when there is a little extra eerie magic in the air.  I have always gotten a big kick out of Halloween, and this trip was a chance to really indulge.  Nearly perfect weather and fairly light crowds, made for a wonderful week of slightly spooky fun.

It was just the three of us (Debbie, Nick and Joe) on this trip.   It was the first time we had a one bedroom at Old Key West.  These accomodations were amazing, and I'll be ranting about those.

There is a link below to each of the ten days of our trip report, plus a "day 0" which provides a better introduction.  There is also a first times list, which lists the things we did for the very first time on this trip, and has some retrospective on what the whole trip was like.  Throughout the nine pages, there are photos and a link to a Quicktime movie here and there.

Have fun, and hope this helps you with a little "Disney fix" until your next trip.
