I totally agree that there doesn't seem to be any 'slow' times like there used to be. When I was younger, we would go mid-October and it was perfect and SO quiet. Now with so many added events, F&W, MNSSHP, free dining, etc -- I don't feel like there is ever a quiet time with slow wait times.
I just want to be able to go on Toy Story Midway Mania a bunch of times in a row! :lol:

Totally agree, October used to be AWESOME. We went last year during fall break, and I was astounded, dismayed, and downright shocked at how packed the parks were. My girlfriend and her mother-in-law and family are all going down on Saturday for a week. She didn't know where they're staying, probably off-site, etc. I was dismayed at the lack of pre-planning she did, but she's not the type to really look at a trip like this and plan things out. At any rate, I did warn her that Epcot will be great because of F&W but also crowded because of it. And don't get me started on ADR's. Egad. :)

November should be a great time for everything except the possibility of a wayward tropical storm or hurricane spoiling your trip. But the odds of that are pretty low so I wouldn't let it determine anything. And there's a good chance you'll be able to score a reduced room rate or free dining. If not, look into renting DVC points. There's a thread about it somewhere...

We actually have been going around the same time for the past couple year (late October/early November) and have found the crowds to still be quite busy and the weather to be quite nice. With that, this year we were able to get free dining while staying at the Wilderness Lodge. Very excited about staying there (never have) as well as the free dining. I still can't get over how much money it saves. And esp with F&W, using our snack credits there will be wonderful.
With how much food you get in the quick service meals, we almost always split those because it is more than enough food. I'm just hoping we can do a couple walk up table service restaurants, as I haven't made as many rezzies as I would have liked.
We also have rented DVC points and found that to be a great deal as well. Minus the fact that you cant' get free dining if it is offered.

We too were told October was the best month to go....Boy was it ever busy. LOL....but thats ok... We were at Disney. Even the fast pass for Toy Story Mania was out at 11:30 in the morning... Holy Cow :shock: :x :shock: I belive that you hit the nail on the head about all the promotions going on at different times of the year. It kind of fills in the slow times.
