Hmmm, then I wonder if that will still be in place for our trip next year. I'll have to keep an eye out over the next year to see what they say.

[QUOTE=joeyandangiesmom;45084591]Wanted to add....Disney added "Lion King" and a behind the stage tour on the second day (after lunch at Herrod's) instead of an evening on your own...QUOTE]

Uh oh, I soooo wanted to see the Lion King that we have booked it for our free night!! (My 8 year old was in an amateur production of it here) I did ask a moderator if there was anyway to arrange a backstage pass and the answer then was no. We are going July 16-23, 2012. I wonder if I should try and get a refund? Who would I ask at ABD to confirm this beofre I start changing things?

The number for the ABD concierge team is 1-877-728-7282. They may be able to confirm what's being planned for the trip.

Did you purchase tickets already? Usually theatre tickets are non-refundable. As I said, our may trip did not include the Lion King, which we were happy about, since we preferred les miz.

We did pay for tickets already (quite a lot!!) and I'm sure they're not refundable. Thank you so much for the concierge phone number, I'll call them tomorrow and confirm the plans before I make any decisions. Ugh!! (although I really want to see the show and I would be thrilled to see back stage!)

Thanks so much for that concierge number Jen! I called and apparently they only added it for one trip in June. Phew! Although I'm sad not to see the backstage tour, I'm relieved not to have spent all that money on tickets for nothing. Now I can go back to planning and being excited....

Great news. That would have been a lot of money to see the same show in the same week! ;-)

Have a fabulous trip! I've had 3 trips where I didn't know anyone going in, but the groups really gel quite quickly on ABDs! I'm sure you *will* meet scads of great folks!

Have a marvelous trip, and be sure & come back & tell us all about it.

Safe Travels!

Congrats, AJMlovesRLM! I took this trip last year, and it's wonderful! I've never heard of anyone doing anything like an FE on ABD trips, but there's no reason you couldn't! (Well, except there's no Fish to Extend at your hotels... ).

We just booked the week before you AJMlovesRLM! We'll arrive 5/31 thru 6/7, but booked another night to visit DLP. We've never been to England, so we're really looking forward to the trip. This will be our second ABD, did the Viva Italia Signature last year, our best family vacation ever. We will arrive early on 5/31, so we will have a full day to explore. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I was thinking about the London eye, then a boat down the Thames to London Bridge, visit the Borough (sp?) market, etc. Maybe have lunch in a gastropub some where? For our free night, we want to catch a show. Looking forward to meeting any fellow travelers. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
