We are spending two nights in HK - not doing DL as we did that as part of our China ABD. Planning on seeing more pandas though!
And we are doing one pre-night in Saigon. Have you started exploring what you might do on the extra days? I keep meaning to look for some 'cool for kids' things to see.
Excited to see Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra and Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi on the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List!

We are also on the July 8 departure and pretty much planning the same "pre trip." We plan to do two (maybe 3) nights in Hong Kong and one in Saigon (probably through ABD) before the trip starts. I think we are going to do at least a half of day at Hong Kong Disney because we have never been and just starting to look into what else while we are there. The Vietnam pre day will most likely be a spa day and a quest to find an ice rink. A bit unusual, but I am a skating coach and love to check out the rinks everywhere I travel. We found an ice rink in Quito before our last ABD!

DH and I are thinking about the Jan 2014 departure. Hadn't even thought about extra nights--probably won't be able to add many since Dh has a limited amount of time off.

This will be our first ABD trip.

Looking forward to 6/24

We are on the 6/24 trip. Our girls will be 14 and 10. We did ABD trips to Ecuador / Galapagos (08/10) and Italy (08/11).

We are all really excited and looking forward to June!

Welcome to the DIS and the ABD Forum, ABD Whovians! I'm eagerly awaiting the reports on this trip once people start coming back from it!

I am really looking forward to the feedback on this trip, I am strongly considering it for 2014, and I think it would be the perfect way to explore these countries. Since it is new there really is not a lot of feedback on it, but given it is Disney I am sure it will be as close to perfect that you can get!

Does anyone know of any feedback on solo travel with ABD? I would love to go on this trip, but my DH not so much...

Do you have specific questions about solo travel with ABD? I'm leaving on my 5th Solo ABD in 3 weeks, and I'd be happy to answer any & all questions you have.

There is a single supplement added to the cost of the trip (usually about 40% of the per person double occupancy cost). I have never felt out of place traveling solo on an ABD, and find it a wonderful way to do solo travel, as, even though I'm traveling on my own, I am not *alone* (unless I want to be). I also feel much safer, knowing there's a bunch of people (and 2 Adventure Guides) expecting me to be at a particular place at a particular time, who would notice right away if something happened to me.

I book many solo travelers and they all report the same information.

It's perfect acceptable to do things on your own, but it's nice to have a group if you want to spend time with people.

Sayhello,

No not really, I know if I am going to travel solo Disney would be an amazing way to go. I just think this is the perfect way to go, my husband has no desire to go to South East Asia, but I do, and I think going with ABD is the perfect way to go. I am currently planning on booking another trip once the 2014 dates are available, but I am liking what I see on this one.

I totally agree with you. I do think ABD is the perfect way to go. Just be aware, ABD's are seriously addictive!

Is anyone familiar with visa on arrival in Vietnam? I know you need the approval letter before arrive there. But, I was just wondering if any one has received a visa by this method and if you would recommend it?

We obtained the visa-on-arrival when we went to Vietnam last year and it was very convenient. We used this company and I would recommend them for a hassle-free way to get your Vietnamese visa.

http://www.hotels-in-vietnam.com/vie...tnam-visa.html

When we landed in Hanoi, we went to the Visa-on-Arrival counter and gave them our passports and the Approval Letter (which we had printed from the email) and paid the Stamping Fee (in U.S. dollars). They processed our visas and we were on our way within 10 minutes.
