High-Ho ROUND-UP, AWAY! We have lots of Disney and theme park news and discussions to share with you this week. There was high drama, literally, at Disney California Adventure when a flying carpet flipped over, bringing the Aladdin show to a safe, but scary, stop. There's some Moonlight Madness at Disneyland, a discussion about Avatar coming to Walt Disney World, and fantastic trip reports. Things take a creepy turn as we get the first word on Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights. All this, plus a Disneyland update from Al along with a brand new MiceChatter video from Sarah, and even an opportunity to save $50 on your next hotel stay. - CakvalaSC

Gay Days Disneyland will be happening the first weekend in October, it has long been a tradition for MiceChatters of every age and persuasion to attend and hold our own meets in the middle of a sea of red shirts. This year, we've been asked to hold another of our famous Eye Spy visual scavenger hunts on Sunday the 2nd of October. It's an adventure which is wholesome and fun for the whole family and we invite you to join this free event. In addition, MiceChat will be holding meets on both Saturday October 1st and Sunday October 2nd at Disneyland.

SIP and NIBBLE AROUND EPCOT'S WORLD SHOWCASE
Saturday October 22nd - EPCOT - Orlando, Florida
And if all those wonderful events above weren't enough, we are continuing our annual Sip and Nibble event at Epcot's Food and Wine Festival this year. We'll gather at the FESTIVAL WELCOME CENTER (located in Future World East) at 10:30 a.m. and take a leisurely stroll around World Showcase, sampling the food and wine offerings along the way. Each of us will have a lanyard with a marker attached so we can record our progress. Those who desire to partake of the adult beverages will also sport a small glass on a lanyard to conveniently share "sips" along the way. After all, with 30 stops in this year's Food and Wine festival, there is just no way you'd be able to finish a whole drink at every stop (or could you?). Please vote in this poll to let us know if you are able to attend.

If you didn’t join us for the Halloween Haunt last week, don’t fret – you can still get a Universal ticket today if you hurry! This is something you won’t want to miss. This week we have some really good ideas and an interesting topic for debate: Should Disneyland close a few days every week? As always, please keep posting your rumors and ideas because they might just make next week’s ‘spooktacular’ Round-up! AAAAAAAAH! (Sorry, Fishbulb scared me!) -Demigod-
Tim Burton Land (or whatever you’d call it)
MiceChat member GothicManor feels that Tim Burton’s movies would have more of a connection to Disney than Avatar does, and offers the idea for a new land based on Burton’s films.
