ABD Backstage Magic Trip April 13th - I'm SO There!

Didn't seem there was much enthusiam for this trip, but I went and read a trip report on the Adventures By Disney Board about it and it sounds TOTALLY AWESOME! I've been wanting to do this for awhile anyway and NOW it's a going to be a Podcast tour?!?! It's a dream come true!

Last week I did the Backstage Magic Tour at WDW and that was fantastic, I can't imagine multiplying it by 5 days, plus seeing DL for the 1st time (for me) AND with the Podcast and DIS'ers. I don't know if I'll be able to handle it. I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited.

I did the ABD tour this past December, and I thought it was a lot of fun.

The only drawback I see with having it as a group: Limited space.
I'm not sure what the capacity is, but I can't imagine it being more than 40 people, max.

I was SO getting excited for awhile there when I heard the date! We have been discussing a DLR trip and this tour ourselves for the future. I checked spring break's dates for the upcoming school year and....big shock here....ours is two weeks beforehand. -cry-

Ummmmmmmmmmm, did you LISTEN to the podcast Nikki???? Yes, I'm dying to see DLR, yes, the tour sounds totally AMAZING, yes, you get to stay in the Grand Californian hotel and go to Disneyland before it opens and watch Fantasmic from a VIP viewing spot....BUT did you not hear John say that he WILL be doing the Single Ladies Dance on this trip????? (we all have it on tape) so HELLO! Is an education really all that important??? Or hey, Leave the kids at home! They can fend for themselves!!!!

My heart practically skipped a beat in excitement when this was announced on the cruise! I don't know if it is feasible for me to go this time, but I can't wait to hear more details!

I'd love to go, but don't think I can swing both of those trips... Oh well, Cruising it is.

I can't do the date of the December cruise so thankfully I don't have to decide. I was really disappointed at first, but the ABD trip makes me feel a whole lot better. I just love, love, love the behind the scenes stuff and have been dying to get to DL.

Is that a real Woo hoo! or an understated golf style Woo Hoo?

I've read a trip report by Disneygrl on the ABD board that got me working on my counter ....... 331 Days to Go!!!

I'm pretty sure there will be a small, but special, appearance by the West Coast Team, too! Hopefully, we will get to pop by the hotel and let you visit with us.

PS - I feel for you Nikki - being a teacher and all....
