Interesting! I just checked, and I got a second one today! I requested one; I wonder if they automatically sent to folks who had booked before?

But that's OK! It gives me a second one to cut up so I can post my vacation plans on my message board in my cubicle! (After the Scotland pages get taken down in a couple of months!)

Yes, they send to Insiders automatically. We are getting ready for our mother-daughter WDW trip, leaving next Tuesday, and Aulani in August, AND WDW in January, but it can't hurt to start thinking about NEXT summer!!! "SingingMom" ....Sent from my iPad using DISBoards

It's interesting that the brochure mentions the maximum group size is 45 guests. I guess enough people must have asked that question....

i recieved it today, I haven't looked at it but I was under the impression, with the exception of backstage magic the max group was 40. I have done 5 of them and the largest group including the 2 guides was 35.

I was under the same impression, but it looks like 45 is the new maximum... it's on Page 12.

Just got my ABD catalog yesterday. It's beautiful. It sounds like if trips will do 45 that they want to fill up a bus which I can understand but prefer the groups of 25 or less.

The max originally was 40. A couple of years ago, they bumped it up to 44. I guess it's officially 45 now.

Trips can and have gone with less, but the max was never below 40 to my knowledge. (I think the Wyoming trip is an exception to that, because of the capacity of the Brooks Lake Lodge, but I could be wrong about that.)

I actually inquired about this for a client right at 2015 release time. For Germany, I was told 44-45, for SE Asia, I was told no more than 35. Called last week about NYC & SF, was was told 38-40 for NYC, and 30-35 for SF.

Thanks, dizneekrazee!

I also asked ABD, and was told "It is generally 40. But can vary. Some places like China and Southeast Asia are 36. Wyoming is 36. Winter Wyoming is 24." But a few trips do go at the max. My guess is they just want the option to put that many people on a trip if they need to (say there are 38 people on a trip, and a family of 4 wants to book. Rather than turning them down, and the trip going 2 short, they go with 42.) But that's just me guessing.
