Of course the weather can vary from year to year; but when we've visited in mid-October, it was beautiful. We spent time at the pool every day.

There is no way anyone can predict what the weather will be like since the temps in October vary a great deal. The average high- low 80s but the highs can range from the 60s to the 90s. What it is like one year has nothing to do with what it is like any other year so having someone tell you: it was in the 90s when we were thete is really not going to be a help to you. In 1996 the high was 97. In 1994 the high was 66! Although the chances are good the weather is going to be pleasant you still have to check a weather site just before leaving to see if you are going to hit a cool or hot spell.

Chances are good it will pleasant- but no guarantees! I have been able to swim in November. But you can hit some cool, windy and/or cloudy days. Even on cool days you may be able to sunbathe even if you can't swim.

Went during that week 2 years in a row and both times the weather was pool weather. However, once in a while, there was a cool breeze, which made getting out of the water quite chilling. Also, I just about froze in the casinos. Bring a sweater for sure. The warmest pool hours during that time will be 11am to 5pm.

Usually go the last week of September/first week of October and everything is usually great. However last year, it was cooler and windier not exactly great pool weather. Also be aware that MGM (and probably other properties also) close some of their pools for the season on October 1. I was very disappointed last year that the Lazy River Poll was closed for the season.

We just got back from a week at Paris and the pool was nice but the water was freezing. Even though it got very hot at the pool the water was too cold to stay in very long.

On October 11th you have a greater chance of it being too hot to use the pool than too cool. You can expect mid-80's to low 90's. Of course during your week there may be one or 2 cooler days. BTW: We go every year in October (last year twice) and I don't ever remember a day in the 60's, but I may have missed the one day 14 years ago, lol.

However gnd is right. The lazy river at MGM will probably be closed. For some reason they don't open it until May and close it before October. So we don't normally stay there in April or October, as the river is a major attraction for us. If it matters to you both Monte Carlo and Mandalay Bay usually have there rivers in use during your dates.

Don't worry and have a great trip.
