Not this year but we have been the last two years and it is really lovely.
We did the Mickey not so scary Halloween party and that was great fun.

Some of the Halloween decorations on the houses are really worth seeing.

  I am still amazed by the pumkins filling the area outside the church in Celebration, strange how a Pagan festival is embrraced by the church?

We are in Florida at the moment, leaving to come home tomorrow, went on the Hogwarts train a little disappointing, a lot of money has been spent on developing it, The Seven dwarfs mine ride is great, had to wait 70 mins, but the best of the Best is the New Transformers ride it is FANTASTIC

We didn't manage the seven dwarves train as the queues were still too long - but thought the Hogwarts train was ok, did you go on the new Harry Porter ride (cant remember its name but its Gringott's vault)

No Fozzie, afraid not, we went to Bush Gardens and walked along St Pete's beach in the sunset, very romantic on our last full day so we didn,t do Islands of Adventure even though we had tickets for everything, My Daughters fault he he Our feet are paying for that, although its a great pedicure walking on the beach Just got back in England after a lovely holiday, time for a good cup of tea

You have to ride it both ways (it's a different journey experience each way).  The best part is just before you board the train from Kings Cross (Universal going to IoA) where you can see the people in front of you in the queue walking through the platform wall.  A very cool effect which a lot of people miss

Transformers is good but the 1 hour wait is crazy although we saw that for the old Unicorn ride this time

We did ride it both ways Chris, Look at the faces of the people getting off the train, it tells a story
Val,

 I think the hype of the train leads to being a bit undrwhelmed with it. That said, we're Brits so don't find trolleys loaded with trunks or "3rd class" carridges to be a novelty. One of the Americans in front of us in the queue was excited just to see the glass roof of the station like it was some sort of cathedral!

I think it's because we probably take it all for granted being here in the UK. I was amazed when I was travelling up to York by train to find the queue of people at Kings Cross Station waiting to be photographed going thru the wall on platform 9 3/4 :-) I haven't done the ride in Florida yet. I will next time, even though I'm not a HP fan. However, having seen some of the advertising for it I think it will be popular with fans and American guests who perhaps don't get to see the kind of old buildings/history we take for granted on our doorsteps here.
