Good point. There are so few of us here, it might make sense to start out broader.

I *totally* agree about the DCL board. I spend way too much time over there I was joking with Calfan yesterday that I have definitely hit the "over-planning" stage for my next two cruises. Not to mention how much money these boards are costing me, LOL. I've booked two cruises and one ABD because of info on these boards

Totally agree - the boards have encouraged me to sign up for multiple cruises and ABD's, and frankly are part of the fun. I'm glad to know that Disney actually reads them too (courtesy of Sayhello's post).

Hey, all! I've been traveling home yesterday & part of today (**!) but I am home now. I think I like the idea of starting with the sticky, but now I'm torn about doing a link to a thread per trip or per destination. Or maybe both (a main thread for the destination, then anyone could add a link to a thread of their own for a specific departure). I want this to be what will be most useful for you guys!

I was thinking more about glasslipper's idea to have the thread by destination. If we did it this way, we could keep a "roll call" in one of the early posts with people on each trip. For example, if we had a "ABD Scotland 2013" meet thread, the first or second post would have a list of all the trips, and then someone on one of those trips would volunteer to update and keep track of the roll call by adding people's names to each trip as they joined (just like some of the cruise threads have). That way we would have the benefit of a wider group and still be able to keep track of who was on our particular trip.

So the first or second post of the thread would look like this:

Who's going? Roll call:
Mar 24, 2013 - Apr 1, 2013
Jun 9, 2013 - Jun 17, 2013
Jun 22, 2013 - Jun 30, 2013
Jun 30, 2013 - Jul 8, 2013 (MissSD)
Jul 22, 2013 - Jul 30, 2013
Aug 4, 2013 - Aug 12, 2013 (California Girl, DH, DD, DS; Calfan, DH, DD, DS; Calypso726, DH) etc.
Aug 18, 2013 - Aug 26, 2013
Sep 15, 2013 - Sep 23, 2013 - Adult Exclusive

What do you guys think? Would something like this work, Sayhello?

I like this idea best. That way more people can discuss the same itinerary even if they aren't on the exact same trip. I think if we got into specific dates most of those treads would be ghost towns.

I also like the idea of a sticky by destination rather than date. As noted above this forum is not nearly as busy as the DCL forum. It would be good to meet others on the boards doing the same trip just on different dates

That would be great! I also like the idea of sharing trip planning with everyone and getting to know any fellow travelers on our date. Excellent idea Glassslipper and California Girl!

I think this is an awesome Idea, not only for the reasons mentioned but there are members of this board that have traveled to the destinations previously that would be able to give pointers and tips for "on your own time" as well as for those who want to do extra days.

Sounds like your idea is the one to go with!

I'll get this set up in the next day or two, after I get all of the dates for all of the destinations.

Thanks for all the input, folks!

This sounds great to me also, I agree with all the above comments, and would love to see if anyone else has signed up for the same trip that we have.

I guess I did. I am so accustomed to being on cruise meet threads on the DIS it just seemed natural to start a Scotland 8/4 meet thread Thank you

The idea for having meet thread for everyone on all the dates of an idividual adventure seems much more appropriate for this board. I already knew I wanted to come in early and attend the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. If you hadn't mentioned the Real Mary King's Close underground tour I would have never thought to look into it. Ideas like those are things that everyone going to Scotland might benefit from.

We are planning to book for London/Paris in 2014. I will totally be lurking on their meet thread too.

Thank you Sayhello for the future meet sticky we will be getting
