    Finally able to start finalizing a trip date between late October to mid December. When's the best time to go in that period? I've heard holloween is amazing. Also, does anyone know what availability is like right now? Can't wait!

    Unfortunately everything I've read recently indicates the resort is completely sold out for Halloween.

    FYI we were able to get in on the tail end of Halloween week (first weekend of November) via a referral despite the site saying sold out. In addition, friends of ours were able to get in last week for that weekend via the Temptation wait list process so it isn’t impossible.

    Check out the Temptation November 2017 group on Facebook. There are a few people offering referrals with the dates you are looking for.

    I'm just giving you a hard time. I'm sure you'll have a great time whenever you go. We wouldn't object to seeing you live if you end up at the end of November :p.

    I've read some recent trip reports that have highlighted some issues with the resort. Is anyone else considering delaying so that renovations can be properly completed before going?

    We are going at the very end of November, as you know, and we are hopeful to see some reports that show significant progress between now and then. If the reports aren't pointed in the right direction, we have discussed going to a sister resort this time.

    So we went for the opening and are going back nov 2-5 so that should tell you enough.

    If it doesn’t then let’s put it this way... if you really go for the party and the vibe and aren’t too worried about the value (sure I care about the value but I am not going to let it ruin my vacation just because I am paying more for something that was awesome ore reno and is still awesome post reno) then you can overlook the issues... leaking roofs, hit or miss ac, etc.

    I mean I would go there every weekend to experience the fun TTR delivers if I could like this...
    :)
