thinking about Disneyland in October. Can be flexible with dates & will be taking the kids out of school (ages 8 & 12). I know to avoid Columbus day weekend which is Oct 11-14. From other posts know the Utah Ed days is Oct 17/18 & Gay days Oct 4-6. So I have it narrowed down to 2 weeks. What are your thoughts on Oct. 7-11 or Oct 21-25th weeks for being busy & crowds? We are going October for lower crowds & want to experience Disney during Halloween. The boys have never been to California or Disneyland & don't want to spend the day standing in line to get on things :)
Also would be interested in people's opinions on their favorite hotel(s) within walking distance to Disneyland, preferably with free breakfast and a pool. Thanks!
