    Press releases in the last few days now list the opening date for Saving Mr. Banks as 12/20/13.

    Would have been fun to see it in El Capitan....

    Hmmmm I think it's just moved further up the list! :goodvibes

    We saw Alice in Wonderland on our last BSM at the El Cap and it was wonderful! Maybe they'll have something else playing that'll be great too. You never know! :thumbsup2

    I reeeaaaalllly want to. When I brought it up I was given the you must be kidding look, so I'm thinking no. . . for now. :laughing:

    Great advice! These "vacations" really take a lot out of you. I remember on our other BSM everybody was getting together to close MK and I could only make it through Space Mt. before I was just totally done for the night. Lesson learned! I'm saving some energy for the parks this time! :woohoo:

    Didn't they have the premiere for Lone Ranger at CA the week before the official opening date. Maybe we'll luck into something like that for Saving Mr. Banks...

    If you book the extra night at the hotel through ABD then they will provide the transportation. If you book the extra night on your own then you will have to arrange your own transportation.

    Kevin should be able to help you with this.

    Kevin can correct me if I get this wrong, but if you book your extra pre or post stay at Lowes Hotel or Grand California through ABD, then the ABD transportation to the airport is available.

    If you use other plans or booking for your pre and post, then you are on your own for that part.

    Last BSM we did we rented a car for a few days and then met the ABD transfer at LAX the day of the start of our adventure as we returned our rental car. Post adventure we stayed one night at GC through ABD and ABD returned us to LAX the day after the adventure ended.

    I know its not ever promised, or even mentioned in most trip reports but i was hoping for a stop in Club 33....just read the refurb is going to start Oct 1st with a full shutdown of the place for an extended period of time....Womp, womp. I know i can't complain because it was never a certainty but I'm still bummed.:sad2:

    This is a total bummer! But, what can you do? Last time I was there the whole stupid lake was walled up so I'm pretty stoked to see Fantasmic! this time. I always try to tell myself I'm leaving something undone for next time. So you'll just have to go on another BSM! ;) Believe me, you'll want to! I think Kevin is starting a program where you just give him your credit card to hold on to so he can get you on trips faster. What I need is a monthly debit plan like I have for insurance and the electric bill and other "needs"!

    Christy, I loved seeing your pretty self go by in Dustin's video! Can't wait to hug necks!

    New app I found called 2013 Photo A Day Disneyland Resort to bring a bit of magic into my life before the trip. It's 1.99 in the Apple store, which seems fairly reasonable. I'm hoping it'll help me come up with some new shot ideas. Though, to be fair, this guy is leagues better than I am. Still, something to aspire to and I love getting the new photo everyday.

    Just had my birthday last Monday (40! Whoop!) and the whole family came down and hung out at a beach house on Tybee Island we rented for a week. It was so awesome! Bonus, no one killed anyone else! Jeri and my mom banded together on a gift idea and got me a Disney Chamilia bead bracelet!!!!! I lurvs it so much!!! Best. Husband. And. Mom. Gift. EVER!!! :cheer2:

    Hope everyone else is having a great summer and staying cool! See y'all soon!! Okay, soon-ish but still sooner than it was! :grouphug:

    I agree, Lauren! Kevin just needs to start taking a monthly payment from me even if I don't have a trip planned...but that being said, I think I've been planning or paying for an ABD trip since the first one I took in 2010.

    It was great to see the video of our June trip! Dustin did a great job. I can't to experience the trip with you guys!

    The summer has been good. I'm looking forward to some cooler weather though.

    First...Happy Birthday!

    Second...I think we need direct deposit....like with a 401K. Just take the money off the top before you even see it. Let me work on the "deferred taxes". That might be an issue.:scratchin

    fast question for anyone that might know....the DL passes we get from ABD, are they 3 day or 4 day? We are going down a few days ahead of time and staying a day and a half after the ABD ends, so we will need to buy a pass for some of that time...just trying to figure out if i need a pass for that friday and that saturday, or if friday is covered by what we get with ABD.

    It's a 4 day pass. You shouldn't have to worry about Friday.

    okay so i just came across this place and wow does it look interesting!! And its right around the corner from the hotel! Has anyone been here before? Is it all hype, or pretty cool with different candy that's not so easy to find?
