School Days, School Days - Missing Out on Mouse Days...

Oh yes - the summer is almost ending and kids are going back to school in a couple of weeks. That means they leave the Vacation Kingdom for their hometowns whose tress will change color in a month or two...

*imagines kids their crying eyes out because they will miss Mickey and his pals*

...and their parents buy the dreaded bags of school supplies to better themselves in the cabin fever of their classrooms.

But there are positive spots starting from September (after Labor Day, of course) through the second day of November. Autumn, with the exception of Columbus Day weekend, is a wonderful time to do Disney. It's not too crowded and it's not too rainy. Also, this season has two events in the World: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (in the MK) and the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. In the former, feel free to dress in any costume you like, as long as it shows your face. (Wear something not too baggy to avoid ruining your guise - select rides are open in that event.) Enjoy a parade with your favorite characters, go trick-or-treating, and watch some spooky fireworks. Save your money, though - this event requires a separate ticket.

If religion prevents you from going to the Halloween hoopla or if it's too expensive, come on down to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, where you can sample wines and foods from a variety of countries. (Tip: make sure you have a designated driver on hand or use Disney transportation if you will sample the wines. Oh, and sample the foods after riding Mission: SPACE, Test Track, The Sum of All Thrills, and Soarin'.)

September 14, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30; October 1, 3, 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, 17, 19, 21, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29, 31; November 1
