Next year's dates are posted but I don't see any new trips. In fact several are missing from the web site (null pages), such as the Czech Republic and Austria, Spain and Provence and Paris.
They may be just in the process of changing over new data.

Looks like there are no signature trips either. I am inclined to think these trips are not being offered but I'll guess we'll see if the website is updated today. I am kind of disappointed that there are no new trips (yet).

Just got off the phone with ABD and ABD is not offering early booking rates anymore. The agent said that Disney thinks their tour prices are correct without having to offer any incentives. Even the $100 returning ABD member (per person) discount is not being offered.

No new trips, two of the trips I was most interested in cancelled (Paris/Provence and Spain), and no early booking discount or repeat traveler discount....hm. Guess I won't be booking any ABD trips for 2010.

They must not be achieving a pre-determined profit margin so they are cutting where ever possible without jeopardizing quality.

Sadly I won't be either but not because of Disney ... just skipping a year and doing something different.

Nothing New

15 minute count down to nothing new. Like I said a month ago...bye bye Austria, Spain and France. No EBR or repeat customer discounts. Signature for Viva only. SO you either take what I say to heart or ignore it and get the OFFICIAL word in 15 minutes. Several new gateways TBA in October. Again nothing special. Air is being booked through a consolidator and being marked up an additional $15 per person over what you can buy it yourself for online. Now that is a real deal!

Rate confusion

I'm confused about the difference between the listed rates per trip date, and the "Regular Rates" range posted above that. For instance, for Alaska, the adult rate "Regular rate" is: Adult $3,479 - $4,269 . But the lowest listed price in the date section for an adult is $3599. Could that be an early booking discount somehow? (I'm still hopeful...)
Maybe I'm reading it wrong, or they still have to update the website, but I'd be surprised if they posted it incorrectly initially.

Last year the signature trips weren't uploaded to the website until about a week after the regular trips were so they may still be offered.

So in response to the economy, they RAISE prices??? I can understand cutting out less popular trips, but cutting the early booking discount with a price increase? Viva Italia last year was 3399 with my EBD, the same trip this year is 4049 without a discount. It will be interesting to see what Tauck does. Provence/Paris was my choice for 2012, maybe they'll reinstate trips depending on the economy in two years, but the prices won't go down and I doubt they'll reinstate the early booking discount.
