  1. Hey Phil,

    I am planning a trip to HP World in Orlando for my wife and daughter. I saw that you went in October which is the month they are wanting to go. How was the crowd issue? This seems to be the number one complaint about the park. Do you have any tips to help them have a more enjoyable experience?
    Thank you and have a great 2013!

    1. Hey Phil! (Great name by the way!)

      We have been goin to Disney for years. It’s not as crowded in Oct when we go around Columbus Day week. The parks can get crowded on weekends but not as bad as peak season. Most kids are in school in October. Just make sure there are no special events or school association events going on and you should be ok. Hit the parks early and head to the back of them first to get on those rides before the crowds make it there. If you can get fast passes get those for certain popular rides as soon as you enter the parks. Have patience as lines are always gonna be there.

      Thanks for reading my blog!

    1. Hey Victoria!

      I just saw it. Thanks so much for thinking of me! Now I’ll have to start making a list and setting up a post soon.

      While I drink my coffee! 😉

      1. The pleasure is always mine!
        I’ll drink to that with a pot of tea served in an elegant cup and saucer, and a platter of wafer-thin cucumber sandwiches on hand!
