Mine came USPS. It was too big to fit in the mailbox so they left it by the front door.

We got one too. Actually two packages of the same thing. We complained and complained and then finally got the Greece package months ago. My husband recently signed us up for the insiders again separately and now we got these packages in the first bunch. Woo hoo

Right there with you. I think they totally forget us.

I received my nice surprise in the mail today. Very nice. We've only been on one trip, but we are getting them. I wonder if they take into account all disney vacations in targeting who gets them?

I thought this was kind of random. We are leaving on our fifth adventure in July. Months ago, we got the box of goodies relating to Greece. (Ironically, it arrived the day we booked that trip. Booked in the morning and box delivered in the afternoon. That was a little Disney magic). We received the France box last week--a book on Normandy and a box of pastels. Anyway, there must be some thought behind what they send and when they send it, but it doesn't make me want to run out and book another trip this year. For anyone who didn't receive the box, it's not that big of a deal IMHO.

I'm checking in to acknowledge receipt of my Insiders gift. I wonder if it's taking this long for others to receive theirs, or if Bobo's just special.

We did get our box a couple of weeks ago--it was fun, and actually did cause us to look more closely at the France trip. We are awaiting the 2013 schedule--rumor has it something will be announced by ABD after May 22!

I got mine, too! It's cool, and the letter has me looking at that trip, also (but if I'm going to Europe in 2013, it's going to be Greece, so maybe another time...

And Bobo912 *is* special!!!

We received our package yesterday. I was surprised since I had to call about the last one. It did spark some interest in the France trip.

Awww, thanks. As far as ABD goes, I more of a squeaky wheel. I didn't get the first package and I called to complain. Communication has been much better since then.

I received this one yesterday too. However, since I never got the first package from months ago, I thought maybe this one was it really, really late! Otherwise, I would have posted on here about it.

I absolutely love this gift b/c I will be using it in my classroom. If you received it and won't use it, donate to the school!

We got ours yesterday afternoon. Ironically, I had called ABD yesterday morning to pay our balance on our August 4 Esprit de France trip and mentioned that we had not received the Insiders gift. The rep explained that they go out in waves and that we would definitely receive one. Who knew Disney could work their magic so quickly. It only made us more excited to go.

We got one as well - and I must say, it sent me to the ABD website to read the itinerary & now I'm trying to figure out a way to get myself to France! I've always been easily bought with gifts
