Some great things coming to ABD...

Hi Folks,

I was invited to California to meet with ABD and share ideas regarding some new things planned.

While I'm not yet able to share the details, I think you will excited about them.

I'm sure that none of you will be surprised to learn that the folks from ABD are very familiar with these discussion boards.

We have also been invited to take a "hard hat" preview tour of Aulani this coming Monday.

We will have details, photos and interviews to share.

I've started a trip report on the Dis Unplugged Board. You can get early details here:

If you would like to be among the first to hear about the great things happening with ABD....please write to me at Kevin@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com.

When I'm able to share the information, I'll send you an email.

Thanks,
Kevin

Looking forward to your hard hat report. I've driven over to Aulani and taken the DVC tour but haven't been inside the main part of the hotel. I've got ressies for the grand opening and can't wait until next month.

We had an amazing meeting with ABD and details are still being finalized.

Some of the stuff discussed will be very cool.

When I am able to share the information, I will.

There is little use sharing mis-information.

Thanks.

Any Idea when you will be able to share - we head off for ADB number 3 in two weeks time, but have been looking at Tauck Bridges for 2012.
They have 2012 dates and prices already listed and some dates fully booked.
I have heard that this years locations and details dont get released until the end of August this year... and as Hawaii isn't top of my list yet.. I wonder if its worth waiting?

Thanks

I'm not sure of a release date as of yet.

It's my understanding that contracts are still being signed.

It's also my understanding that ABD may be making some positive changes to certain things.

I'm sorry I'm not able to be more helpful in your decision making.

I'm reading some announcements will be made Aug 19th during D23. Now I don't know if that means nothing until that time or the "special" announcement regarding some positive changes.

We also wished to book another ABD (Southwest Splendors) but they will not release the dates and we have to plan our vacations so far in advance that we booked a Tauck Bridges tour for next year. I do wish that ABD would compete on time line like other family tour groups.
