I've just booked my trip here today, and we're staying at sequoia too! We're going in february, actually flying out on the anniversary of Matty's illness, so it'll give me something to look forward to for that date! booking was a nightmare though, the holiday was fine, but they were unable to book transfers for us due to the wheelchair, I had to sit there for about 2 hours! Still, I think its cheaper to just get the train from the airport anyway. Can't wait! Hope your Children are excited - think I'm worse than mine! Big Grin

I don't know for sure but I do know that when my son was booked a holiday as a wish we got taken to a cordoned off part of the park and tn characters all came out to see us they closed it off for everyone else and only let us in it was amazing I have never seen him so happy it is normally such a shove for characters!! I know the charity has to book it directly with the park so I hope they book it for you!! On the 7th there is Mickeys not so scary halloween party which is an after hours event you have to buy tickets for it I am not sure how much they are as we have annual passports so get them for next to nothing but if you can afford it is SO worth it the park stays open until midnight and there are certain rides left on and extra shows and things galore. It really is worth doing if it is something you can afford. Halloween really is lovely and I hope it is this year too because there are A LOT of building works going on in the park as next year the park is 20 so they are planning a huge celebration from May onwards so they are repainting everything the castle is finished now but was scaffolding for months!! So there might be things closed at the moment the closures for October are...
