The Alhambra gets 3 million visitors a year and is the most visited monument in Spain. I suggest buying tickets 3 months ahead of your trip. Read Buying Alhambra Tickets Online.

If you today start a 'dummy' booking for mid-week first week of Oct, you will find that many of the timeslots are already completely sold out for then (especially morning slots). Book now or your planning may become seriously constrained.

It is always a good idea to buy those Alhambra tickets well ahead of time using Ticketmaster. They have a large allocation of tickets and act as the official sales outlet online.

Of course there are other ways you can obtain tickets and one is to queue up at the main ticket entrance early on the day of visit. But frankly this is not at all satisfactory becasue of the unknown factors of obtaining ticket on the day and all the other nonsense.

In early October you will have good weather so could book either morning or afternoon sessions with suitable time slot for the Nasrid entrance. So if you have a reasonably precise idea of the time you will be in Granada then I would look at those day/s now just to see what the situation is. The Ticketmaster site allows you to see the numbers of tickets available and at what time.
