2014 ABD Itineraries. We have a Release date!

Hi, some others mentioned this in another thread, but I wanted to put this where everyone will notice it.

I just got an Adventure Insiders package. There's a letter included that says:

Quote:
Hello [Sayhello] Family,

Because you are Adventure Insiders, we want you to be among the first to know about our new itineraries and additions for 2014.

First, we're making some changes to our incredible Italy vacation that we think your family will be especially excited about. We're also adding special departures that include teen-focused activities on our Arizona & Utah, Peru and Costa Rica vacations.

We are also thrilled about a completely new adventure, and as a little hint, we've included a special gift you can sing your heart out to.
Note: the special gift is a Blu-Ray/DVD of "The Sound of Music".

Quote:
Save the Date - May 22. As Adventure Insiders, you'll be able to book any of these exciting new itineraries a day before the general public. Additional details will also be available that day at AdventuresByDisney.com/2014. Make sure to call us ... or contact your Travel Agent for the best selection of available departure dates.

Come on! Let's adventure together again!

Sincerely,
Ken Potrock,
Senior Vice President, Adventures by Disney.
So it looks like the new itineraries will be announced May 22, and can be booked by Adventure Insiders on May 22, and the general public on May 23. There's no list of any sort of Adventure Insiders perks.

Sayhello

Are "Adventures Insiders" a club you can sign up for after your first ABD ? My fiance and I are anxiously awaiting the release dates so we can book our first ABD to Germany for our Honeymoon!

Yep. At least the Return Address is Lake Buena Vista, FL

Yes it is. After your first ABD, you can sign up here:

https://www.adventuresbydisney.com/adventure-insiders/

I'm going to call ABD and verify that that's still correct, because I don't see a link to this page on the ABD website.

ETA: I spoke to ABD, and they said to go ahead and use the website to sign up if you qualify. You might not get the current gift, but you can sign up (as long as you've already taken an ABD). They weren't aware yet of the early booking date for Adventure Insiders (gotta love it!) so I won't guarantee there won't be any issues if you try to book on the 22nd. But it's certainly worth a try!

Some of my clients in California got it today, so they're coming! I've been on five AbD trips, but somehow I keep getting "dropped" from the Insider list and I've never gotten anything at all. My boys all do, however. Odd, but I keep signing back up again in hope that it'll stick this time.

I LOVED Austria when we did that one in 2008. I'm hoping that a lot of what we did is included -- it was a great itinerary!

I have no AbD this year. I'm going on an Alaska cruise in July, and a riverboat cruise (r/t Venice) in August. Add in my son's wedding in L.A. in November, one trip to Disneyland, another to WDW, and yet another to L.A. for the wedding shower, and I think I'm overdoing it even for me. I'm looking forward to reading everyone's trip reports for this year!

I originally had a sad face after my "no AbD" comment above. Then I read what I wrote and said, "What the heck do you have to be sad about?" LOL

Wow! You *do* have quite the year coming up! Have you been to Alaska before? I do love it!

I didn't do an ABD last year. It was hard, but I got through it!

A couple of years ago, I hosted 135 people on Holland America for an Alaska inside passage cruise. I LOVED it, even though it was exhausting. This year, I only have 32, and I have help (I was alone last time!) so I'm expecting to love it even more.

I'm looking forward more to the wedding, though! It's on a backlot of a movie studio in Manhattan Beach (right outside of LAX). It's a New York Street, and the wedding is 50s/60s/Madmen themed. Two of my three kids work in the industry, so it's fitting. Now to lose that 30 pounds...

Sorry to hijack this thread with my travels! Back to AbD...

Hi Y'all, Its been a while since I posted but I lurk occasionally. I always love when ABD releases itineraries! We are way overdue for another ABD. Hoping the Montana Alberta trip will be offered again. We thought we would do it for 2013 but it looks like we will go for it in 2014. As always SayHello is always on the ball
