Jewels of Southeast Asia, here we come!

I was excited from the time I saw the announcement, and the itinerary looked awesome. So we are all set for 2013!
Anyone else?

We really want to do it for the Jan 2014 trip! We are just worried about commiting to something that is so far away, and we are not used to traveling with a tour group (and paying so much more to do so!). But this trip looks fantastic, and if I am going to do a tour, I think this is one area of the world where it would be more benefital to have guides!

We want the DU discount, so we have a week to decide

We are in for SE Asia too! Disneyphx - which date are you on? We are on the July 8 departure. Only 410 days to go. Maybe a little early for a countdown??

Oh, not a problem! I could me misunderstanding the email too...who knows! I emailed back that I was going to take a week to decide, and I got an email back saying it is booking up so fast, since it is a new destination! Now the pressure is on to make a decision!

Our travel party is just me and DH. We don't have any children, but love having children along on the trip. We have done two ABD's and can't wiat for this trip!! I tried checking out airfare last night too, but I guess we have to wait to figure that out. We are also considering if we want to take a few days before or after to visit another destination that is not included on the trip. That may depend on how we can work the flights. Planning for the trip is part of the fun and we have plenty of time to work out the details!

Congrats on your booking! I think this looks fantastic - especially the fact you get a good chunk of free time in different places. I'm hoping for 2014 for this since I've spent the last day pricing out Peru for 2013

We left Vietnam in '75 (Operation Frequent Wind) too many people I know did not make it back, I just can't see doing a tour there. Sorry to be the party pooper, just my opinion.

No worries--plenty of other options for you! Probably folks who don't want to travel to Germany, or China, or see Normandy for the same reasons. Travel doesn't fit all--it is a very personal experience!

This is very true. I have never even considered the Germany trip, as I just can't envision having a good time there. But I know lots of people love that trip. Everybody's reasons for going or not going are going to be different

Fortunately, as you say, there are tons of other places ABD goes to!
