We have a lot of magical fun have lined up for October. As always, feel free to join us for as much or as little of the following events as interest you! We will be visiting Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney Hollywood Studios, and of course the Magic Kingdom. We will also be going to the Universal Orlando Resort to experience the wonderful new Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley and Escape from Gringotts!

Just look at the crazy itinerary of events we have lined up for this totally awesome trip:

October 23 – Universal Orlando Resort

This year we kick off the fun with a trip to Universal Studios Orlando and Islands of Adventure. Here we will experience daytime thrills and nighttime chills.

The day will begin with a visit to Diagon Alley inside Universal Studios Orlando and a ride on the new, state-of-the-art attraction, Escape from Gringotts. Then we will journey on the Hogwarts Express into Islands of Adventure to experience Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. Along with all of the other world class attractions like The Amazing Spiderman and Men In Black, this promises to be a day you will never forget. Contact Fairy Godmother Travel for discount Universal Studios theme park admission.

Then, as the sun sets, the brave souls who remain will join us for the 24th annual Halloween Horror Nights.

This event is truly one of the very best Halloween events in the entire world. With maniacally clever haunted houses and beautifully designed movie quality sets, it truly is in a class by itself.

For those joining us for the day AND the nighttime activities, we’ll have dinner as Universal transitions from regular operation to Haunt. Be sure to contact [email protected] to reserve your spot for dinner and to find out where we will meet. If you’d like to join us for Halloween Horror Nights, you’ll need the front of line tickets (HHN Express Pass). Contact Fairy Godmother Travel for discount tickets

Sign up below to let us know if you plan to join us for the day, HHN or both. We’ll save a spot for you at our meal reservations. Please note that you will need a park hopper ticket for the day and a Universal Express pass for Halloween Horror Night to keep up with the group.

Sip and Nibble – October 24

Sip-and-Nibble-Logo-2013

Friday will be the always fun, often imitated, but never duplicated, Sip and Nibble at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. This is where we meet new and old friends, share food & drink, and try to make it through all the food and wine offerings. This year there are 25 separate kiosks featuring food and wine from continents and countries such as Africa, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hawai’i, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Patagonia, Poland, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Singapore, South Korea. There are also odd kiosks with really great food (the Cheese kiosk is really GOOD!), the most delicious vegetarian dishes and fantastic drinks (alcoholic and non) for you to enjoy. Lets take bets—will we make it past France this year? (Hint . . . we’ve never failed to finish yet!). It’s an absolutely amazing day of food, drink and friendship!!!

Last year we had an rollicking good time around the Seven Seas Lagoon. In fact, Disney Legend Bob Gurr joined us for our trip around the world.

The MiceChat Walt Disney World Gumball Rally returns October 26th in the “Walt Disney World Monorail Rally.” Teams of 2, 3, or 4, will race to see who can ride the most attractions in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot in one day. Players who have competed in the Disneyland version have raved, “It’s the most fun I have EVER had in the park!”

To win, you’ll need a good strategy, but even the most prepared teams will have to deal with with varied operating hours, closures, ride breakdowns, parades, and weather to visit a set of specific attractions in each of the two parks in this year’s event.

  1. Sounds fantastic! I can hardly wait until October!!!

  2. How do we sign up for teams for Gumball Rally if we are going to the WDW trip alone?

    If anyone who is going would like to have an extra team mate I’m available.

    • Think about posting to your Facebook page asking if anyone else wants to be on a team with you. There are a lot of people going, I’ll bet you find a team. :-)

    • I found my team members for the DL Gumball Rally on the MiceChat forums, you may want to try there :)

  3. Of course my evil step-sister would plan her wedding on the exact day of the WDW Gumball Rally :( But hopefully it’s around next year, and in the meantime I’ll just have to wait for the next DL rally.

  4. I think we can make it! :)
