Thanks so much for the info on the app and book. I will definitely check it out!
I went on the Mediterranean cruise in 2010 and my 2 favs were Rome and the Cinque Terra (very small town Italy). Hoping maybe for Verona next year and take the train to different cities from there.

We loved it too. My 7-year old DS broke out into cackling laughter numerous times. The plot was actually a little different than I thought it would be based on the previews I had seen, but that is a positive as far as I am concerned. Definitely not the case that we had "seen" the whole movie by virtue of having seen the previews. We plan to buy it when it comes out on DVD so we can watch it again closer to our trip and whet our appetite even more.

Since I'm not planning most of this trip, I got to have something to plan!
Hi and to the group! I would have loved to go on the adult trip. I'm sure Deb's group will be great! I am glad I am going in August though Ooh the train sounds like fun too. I know what you mean about the planning

I am so glad to hear that the whole movie isn't shown in the previews. I hate it when they do that. We will be going on Friday ... can't wait!

So glad you guys liked it, too. I *totally* agree about the plot being different than expected (in a good way). It was very appropriate that I saw it with DD.

Just saw the movie tonight. LOVED IT and cannot wait for Scotland. And I was happy that there were surprises that I did not anticipate in the story of the movie. I too had seen all the trailers and wondered. May have to see it again

It's funny how we are all having the same reaction about being surprised by the story. I'm about to hop on the Fantasy for a cruise, so I think I'll be seeing it a few more times

Have a great time all! I have yet to be able to afford an ABD trip but maybe soon.

I did have a question, though, about ABD. Is it true that you get specific pins for the trip? Like for China - you get Mulan? So for Scotland, you might get Merida?

There are Collectable pins given to you for each day of an ABD. They are specific to the Theme of the Day for that specific trip. You can only get these pins on an ABD (unless someone parted with theirs on ebay or something, which I would NEVER do!) So, if there was a themed day in China that Mulan was appropriate for, they'd likely put her on the pin for that day. You get pins with all sorts of characters, like Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Belle, etc. I think they do tend to tie the pins to characters from related countries, etc, if they can. So, since the Scotland trip is so themed to Brave (at least for next year) I think it's likely you'd see a pin with Merida on it, and probably other characters from Brave.

Funny how sometimes it is the little things that just give you chills of excitement. Of course I am excited about the actual trip itself and all of the great places we are going to go and sites we will see, but I have to admit that seeing your post about the pins gave me a whole new tingle of excitement in anticipation of our first-ever ABD!

I was browsing the ABD site and it looks like they added several more dates to the trip. Plus a couple of the trips are overlapping now.

Oh, dear! I hope I didn't give away a surprise! But I guess it's all good if it adds to the excitement!

Wow! I guess ABD underestimated the popularity of this trip. I'm glad they were able to arrange extra departures! They have plenty of time to train extra Guides!

Well, obviously I don't know what surprises are in store for you specific to the Scotland trip , but you'll be getting an ABD duffel bag your first day, with a few little logo gifts in it. (The gifts seem to vary from trip to trip. I've gotten small binoculars, a water bottle, a cooldana, things like that). The duffle bag is really useful for carrying stuff onto the motorcoaches, especially on Hotel transfer days, when you likely won't see your suitcases until much later in the day, and want to bring a few things with you. And I know some people who used them for all those lovely souvenirs they bought along the way...

Me too I knew about the pins. I was on a Disney Cruise and attended an ABD presentation where they raffled off a set of pins that contained ALL of the pins for every adventure.

I had not thought of Merida and Brave pins specificlly for the ABD trip though so I am quite excited about the possibility!
