dh and I were talking about this it seems like a long flight for a short time, so we were considering some either before or after time also. I was thinking before because there are a few things in Frankfurt that are of interest to us.
We are taking a day in New York (as we are coming from the West Coast) and then arriving in Frankfurt a full day early. We are staying an additional day at the end in Munich. We are then traveling to Dublin to arrive a day early for our ABD Emerald Isle tour.
Due to how expensive the flight is, I thought we'd better make it worth our while.
Other DISer's have suggested arriving at least one day prior to the ABD, so I took their advice.

We haven't booked our flights yet, but I see the logic to getting in a day or so earlier. It had occurred to me that our daughter may not handle the jetlag as well as the adults might...or at least be able to suck it up like we would.

Also in checking flight costs it seems its about $200pp less expensive. I think I would prefer to spend that extra money for the day of rest and relaxation leading up to our adventure.

Hi!
Does anyone know if a specific thread has been started for the date above? Or a FB page?
Do they do anything like an FE on ABD trips like on cruises?
Is anyone else on the 6/30 trip?

This will be our first ABD

It will be DH Mike DS (11) Julian and myself Steph on the trip!

I AM SO EXCITED and can't wait to meet everyone on the trip!

Steph

Hi!
How were you able to find out that there are other children close to your DD age on the tour?
I am dying to know if there will be any other boys my son's age on our upcoming trip.
Thanks
Steph

Call ABD with your reservation number and they can tell you the numbers of people as well as number of kids and their ages. We are going this summer on an ABD trip and already there are 15 kids with a nice mix aorund my daughter's age.

When we booked with DU he was able to pass that info along to us. As suggested though I would expect ABD would also be able to tell you.

After deliberation and discussion with my daughter, we've decided to take a day trip to Austria after our ABD tour. Anyone have suggestions on how to visit Salzburg for the day? Any good tours? Thanks in advance.

You might want to check out the thread for the DIS Exclusive Germany trip. Some of the folks there are discussing checking out Salzburg, also.

Called ABD today and found out that our trip is almost sold out and that there are several kids around my son's age on the trip and about 13 to 15 kids on the trip so far.
