A little "Insider Information" about ABD and ABD/DCL

I have a little "Insider Information" from ABD (the person who told me said it was totally fine to share!).

First, it looks like the 2015 ABD itineraries will be coming out in late May again. (I think this was reported by DisneyKevin a little while back. I don't think it's any secret, but I did have it confirmed today).

The new info is in regards to the new cruise itineraries that DCL just announced, and ABD/DCL add-ons.

Quote:
Adventures by Disney will be offering pre-packages in Copenhagen and London, as well as embedded packages on the 7 and 12 night Baltic sailings. The ABD/DCL pre-packages and embedded packages will go on sale around June 18th.
My source also added:
Quote:
I can tease one thing here: our embedded packages will be ABBA-solutely awesome.
I'll be interested to see the itineraries. I might be interested in one of these in 2015! (Except I know DCL will be horrendously expensive for a solo traveler. Conundrums, conundrums!)

Thanks for the info. Will wait to see if they offer Copenhagen pre with the 11 night cruise.

OMG - you made my day!!

I just booked a 12 day Baltic cruise for July 2015, and depending on the ABD, I may downgrade my room a little to have the $$ to spend on the ABD. I just hope they don't make it so ridiculously expensive that it prices me out...

Interesting Tobi. I'll be watching for a post-TA package in Copenhagen.

Yay! I'm so excited. I figured they would add the packages, but am so glad that it's been "confirmed". I'm on the 7 night Baltic and we absolutely plan to add on ABD.

Thanks, SayHello for getting and posting this info. We just booked the 7/10/15 12-night Baltics and were hoping for an ABD add-on! I'm not sure I want to think about the cost since we are also doing the Norway/Iceland cruise as a B2B with the Baltics, but I know the ABD add-on will be very tempting. Can't wait to see details on June 18. The ABBA museum is in Stockholm, by the way.

Thanks so much for the info, SayHello! You must have been listening to Calfan and I talk, LOL. We both just booked B2B 11-night Norway/Iceland and the 12-Night Baltics. We'd heard speculation of no ABD for Norway/Iceland because it's a one time itinerary, but we were hopeful about the Baltics portion. So excited. Now I need to start saving my pennies . . . or rather, my gold pieces I'm sure it's not going to be cheap.

We're on the July 10th! And ditto from me. I suspect it will be in the same range as the 12 night Venice/Med from 2014 though, which was in the $3200 range?

This is great news! This matches exactly with what I had heard. I too am on a B2B with the Iceland trip and would love to join an ABD add-on for the Baltics. We did the Med Magic ABD add-on for our Med with Greece cruise in 2013. It was a FANTASTIC experience!

Nuts, I was hoping Norway had the embedded ABD also. Copenhagen pre would be nice though, too.
