I suspect there will be some new things for DVC members. On past trips I've never heard the guides mention DVC or ask the guests if they are DVC members, but they brought it up several times on our recent trip.

The feedback survey question lists the same destinations as last year, I think. Our guide mentioned that he thought the Yosemite trip would return someday. They still have Spain, Czech Republic and some other destinations that were once offered, but discontinued, so maybe those will come back someday too. Mostly they ask about places they already offer trips to. Here's the question

If you were to travel with Adventures by Disney® in the future, what destination(s) would you be most interested in?

I guess the DVC thing would be paying the same cost even if you book when the price has gone up. They are currently offering a New York exclusive ABD for DVC members as well.

I was told by the ABD guide/rep on the Fantasy 2 weeks ago that the release date would be June 1st. He seemed pretty certain. He also hinted that ABD was hiring quite a few people that speak Portuguese. Russia would be a great destination too, though.

Hmmm. I don't think they've ever offered the Olympic Peninsula or Brice & Zion before. Have those always been on the survey?

It's not on the survey, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Scotland wasn't on the 2011 survey, but it was the new trip in 2012.

The NYC DVC trip was a set cost for all members regardless when they booked or 160 points per person. There was no sliding amounts for this one. Supposedly (According to the ABD folks when they announced the trip) that if it was popular it would be back next year as a trip available to everyone.
