I am hoping the prices dont go up too terribly next year because I have my heart set on going to Ireland/Scotland in 2014. I am leaning more towards Ireland because i've read some reports and it sounds AMAZING!

My DD 12yo (at time of the trip), and I will be on the 7/13/2013 trip. I can't wait. She has talked about going to Ireland since she was 5, and now I think she is old enough to appreciate it

I also posted this on HollyH's thread, then I found this one.

We were scheduled for our first ABD to Egypt but that was canceled this week so we are rescheduling for ABD Germany (June 21 - 29) followed by this trip to Ireland (July 2 - 9). It will be myself and my DD who will be turning 15 on July 1st. I figured that since we're paying for such an expensive flight we should make it worth our while. Planning to arrive 2 days early on June 30th so we won't be traveling on DD's birthday. Any suggestions for a teenagers birthday in Dublin?

We having been booking flights and making plans for a pre-trip ABD trip to London so it's starting to seem real.

We are going to go to the Harry Potter Studios and to see Wicked along with seeing some other London sights before flying from London to Dublin.

Oh and this is our 1st ABD trip.

KMC,

You are on the 7/2 trip, too, right? It is going to be such fun. A trip to London beforehand sounds terrific. Doing pre nights is the way to go. It gets rid of any stress about "getting there."

Yes, we are on the 7/2 trip as well! I was just telling my DS there will be a 5 year old boy on the trip. My DS turns 14 in May but he is good with young kids.

We wanted to arrive at least a couple days early to get acclimated to the time before the ABD starts. At first we were thinking of going to Dublin directly for a couple days early but then I read about the Harry Potter Studios! My son and I are big HP fans, so we decided London would be a good starting point.

We look forward to meeting you and the others on our trip! I called ABD about a month ago and they said it's 72% full, so no chance that it will be cancelled due to not enough people booked.

So far there are 8 kids on the 7/2-9 trip, their ages are: 5, 6, 12, 13, 13, 14, 15, 16. Yeah! I had my travel agent check.

Of course that's subject to change but I am glad we have a nice big group. We had lots of kids on the trip last year. My DS was by far the youngest but they all got along really well and traveled in a pack. They treated DS like a mascot and he LOVED the attention. He's looking forward to having another great group of kids this summer.
