Welcome to the ABD Forum, fleaflour! This looks to be a really popular trip. I'm amazed at how many DISers have signed up for it! Can't wait to hear all the reports!

Are any of you stopping by England or Ireland before the trip? If so, where are you planning to stay and what are you doing? just curious....

We're on the June 30th trip, and are planning a few days in England beforehand.

I think we'll head straight to Edinburgh, since we travel to London pretty frequently. But that could change depending on flights!

We're (me, DH, DD 14) planning on three nights, we think, in London beforehand. Not exactly sure on how many nights, but DD is a total anglophile and wants to see more of London. We spent one short day there after our Germany ABD last year. We hope to stay at one of the Hyatts, probably the Andaz Liverpool Street (on points).

DD wants to see the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, etc. I think we'll end up taking the train up to Edinburgh. It's a long way off, but that's our plan as of this week!

Any chance on you taking DD on ABD Cities of Knights and Lights tour next year?! ;-). If she wants to see those places, nothing beats the fabulous tours given at those locations by the "blue badge guides" that Disney uses! Sarah's tour of Westminster was beyond amazing and Stephen's insights to the Tower of London were so interesting!

Our current plan is to spend 3 nights in Edinburgh before the trip, but (same with CaliforniaGirl09), that could change depending on flights. We are hoping to use our United miles, so if it ends up that flying into London is more feasible than flying into Edinburgh, we might end up doing that. Getting close to when I can book flights.

I wish! We'd talked about it, but we're planning to go only to Paris in 2014. While we're there, we also might try to go back to Mainz, where we stayed for one night before our Germany ABD. Never say never, though. We've been on an ABD every summer since 2009 so it might be a challenge for me to get through May 2013 without booking another tour. And if an Israel or Japan itinerary is added, all bets are off.

We are also arriving a couple of days early but in Edinburgh not England since we are planning to do Knights & Lights with ABD in 2014.

We'll likely spend a couple days sightseeing in London (and follow an itinerary similar to the ABD Knights and Lights tour....but on our own). And we'll also spend a couple days visiting some cousins in England as well.

I think it might be fun to show up in Edinburgh a day early and relax and enjoy the hotel a little before the tour begins.

I leave on Oct. 4th

I am not doing ABD. While at Disney 5 years ago, I met a family form Scotland. We started with e-mail, letters and phone calls. They have been back here since and I spent a week with them at WDW. I am now going over to stay with them for 9 days. Nothing like local guides. I am very excited, and will report back as to what we did. I have never been out of the US before, except on a cruise, so sorta scared. I go from MSP to Amsterdam, then on to Edinburgh. Wish me luck.

I am torn between a pre-trip to Italy or Ireland or more days in Scotland. At least we all have time to decide

Hi everybody!

We are less than a year out for our trip. WOO HOO! We got our air travel secured already. DH and I managed to rack up enough miles to book round trip in First Class I am so excited! This will be a first. Anytime we've flown anywhere it has always been coach.

I went online to check out the seats on our flight and they are the kind that can lie flat. Way cool, I will be able to sleep Here's a pic!

I can't wait until next August!!!!!!
