The trip was amazing, fabulous, incredible, fun, and every other positive word you can think of! Our guides were the best. The people in our group became good friends.

It was so cool to see so many behind the scenes places and get to go places that aren't open to the general public.

I don't want to spoil the surprises for anyone going on the trip, so I'll just say that it was the most special vacation we've ever taken!

Since our 1-day ABD got cancelled last month, we are now considering doing this full ABD trip. Are they still offering good deals for booking while on a cruise ship?

The deal (10% off) was, as far as I know, only being offered on the Fantasy, so you should be OK from that standpoint. But there have been a couple of reports that it was discontinued recently. Don't have any confirmation on that or not. When I was on the Fantasy, the ABD guide kind of said it was offered whenever they were able to have a Guide on the ship to do the bookings. I'd check with DCL to be sure.

Thanks! Here's hoping that I can get that extra discount!

Just got off the Fantasy last week and there were no ABD discounts being offered at that time.

My fiancé (will-be husband at the time) are doing BSM on Aug 4-9 as part of our Disneymoon! Our first ABD and my first time visiting Disneyland/LA. So excited!

Considering this adventure for 2014 - is the park ticket you get included valid throughout your departure day if you wanted to stay for the full day after parting ways at the final breakfast?

Thanks, that's good news! Thinking of adding an extra day on too (probably separate from the package) to do Universal for a day too...

Sounds like fun. You could stay in Hollywood/Universal City/Burbank area that last night since it's closer to Universal. Unless you're flying out of SNA, that's what I'd recommend.

ETA: Just realized you're in England. We'll be doing the ABD Scotland tour next month, stopping in London first because my daughter is the world's biggest anglophile. (Gets it from her mom!)

Keeping my fingers crossed that there will be space for us to go on the DIS Podcast BSM for July 6-11, 2014. I just signed up tonight through the link Kevin from DU sent out. This will be a great way to celebrate my DD's 16th birthday. Maybe it will become a tradition, since this year her birthday also happens to be during our Ireland ABD.

Yes, I think Universal City might be a good idea, as we're thinking maybe October so we could also do Halloween Horror Nights there (need to decide quite quickly now the DIS dates are out, although Oct isn't one of these!)

I'm the equivalent of you two being Anglophiles, but for the USA, although I'm not sure what the term is for that!!
