I'm glad you clarified this about the Outlander series, because I thought it had something to do with the odd sci-fi movie from 2008 or the long running sci-fi book series... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outlanders

AH I see where that could get confusing I never read the sci-fi series or saw the movie. The Outlander series I'm addicted to is set in Scotland in 1743 just prior to the Jacobite Rising. Honestly, I never thought I would like that story based on the description of this book. But after having people tell me how good it is for the last 20 years I decided to finally read it. The author does such a beautiful job of storytelling that I feel like my mind has already seen Scotland. Now I want my eyes to see it too

DH and I are signed up for the 6/9 trip. We're thinking of potentially adding on a few days to go to Glasgow and Stirling as well. This will be our first ABD. We actually just got back from London and doing a Mediterranean Cruise and DH mentioned that he really wanted to visit Scotland (I went about 10 years ago and loved it). So when we saw the itinerary - we decided to go for it!

Whoo hoo! Congrats on signing up. It's an AMAZING itinerary, and you are going to love ABD. I think we are going to go to Edinburgh a couple days early and take the train to Stirling for the day (so we don't have to move around so much). I keep meaning to contact my TA about pre-nights. Has anyone done this yet?

Something just occurred to me. Did ABD tell you who the group is that you're traveling with? I imagine they're all communicating through whoever reserved the date, and I'd think you'd want to be included in that... I know when I went on the DIS exclusive Knights & Lights, we made a lot of plans for before & during the trip, and just got to know each other. It really added to the trip.

Welcome to ABD! You're going to love ABD, and the Scotland itinerary looks wonderful! Be sure & report back to us after you go!

Did you guys see the blog post by Deb Wills with www.allears.net today? That's who has the group block on the September trip.

Welcome to the Scotland meet thread! It looks like there are several of us coming in a few days early on our adventures.

Yes, I did! Too bad she's not going before we are. I would like to see her write up on the trip.

Just thought I'd mention here that if you are posting a website, you need to post the entire address. If you post the "dot net" thing, then the site's filters are being bypassed, and the DISboard policies don't allow that. (Some sites have been banned from the DISboards, and the only way you'd know is by posting the whole address). I've edited your post to show the entire address.

I was wondering if it was Deb Wills. She likes to take groups on new itineraries.

Did anyone else receive the offer from Disney Visa for 4 complimentary tickets to an advance screening of BRAVE? We are going to see it in San Francisco on June 18. I'm embarrassed to admit how excited I am to see this movie due to having booked this trip.

That is so cool. I have a Disney Visa and didn't get it, but as I mentioned I'm seeing it Sunday night (10th) at Pixar studios. I'm right there with you on excitement for this movie.

The Outlander day tour is actually in Inverness <CLICKY HERE> Diana has several links to Outlander tours on her web site <CLICKY HERE>

I am not doing the Outlander tour this trip. We are coming in early for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and whatever else we can squeeze in. I plan to do the Outlander tour in 2014. That's when we will be doing ABD London/Paris with my parents. My mom is hooked on the series now too. 2014will be her first and probably only time she goes to Europe so I promised to take her on a pre ABD Outlander tour.

Hope this helps
Thanks for the tip on the Outlander Tour-I put it in my favorite places for future reference. I want to go to Scotland in 2014 and hopefully w/ABD and would love to do this tour as a pre or post trip. I am just starting the 4th book in the Outlander series-all I want to do is read!! Would love to hear more on this trip if anyone adds it to their itinerary this year.

Saw a special screening of BRAVE last night at PIXAR, and it was amazing! Found out that we were the first group outside of PIXAR to see it, which was pretty cool. You guys are going to be so anxious to go on this trip when you see it. Visually stunning. Had a chance to talk to the director for a while, and he was excited to hear that I was doing the ABD Scotland trip. Many of the location inspirations for the film were taken from his honeymoon trip to Scotland years ago. Is it August 2013 yet?

So glad you liked it, and how cool to be able to chat with the director! So excited to see it and even more excited for our trip.

It will definitely get you in the mood for the trip! BTW, Calfan pointed out that the trip prices have gone up yet again! Some are nearly $1000 more than opening day. So glad we jumped quickly!
