    Few questions about Backstage Magic (may apply to others ABD)

    1) Can you book flying in a day early before the ADB. Is transportation to the hotel provided if you arrive a day before your adventure start? Do you stay at the same hotel as your first day of adventure?

    2) Same question as above but departure instead of arriving?

    3) Do you have to book flying with the package in order to receive free transportation to/from airport?

    4) You may choose not to answer this one, but plays a big part in my decision with BM with you or a general BM. How many times have you offered BM and how many times did the group get to enjoy Club 33?

    ABD usually offers pre and post nights with most Adventures. This is true with BSM. Pre nights would be at the Loews Hotel. Post nights are at the Grand Californian.

    Transfers from and to the airport are included as long as you are under your ABD reservation. Should you book additional nights on your own, transfers are then, not included.

    You are not required to book airfare as part of he package. Airfare can be booked on your own or through ABD. It's completely up to you.

    We have had eight Dis Exclusive Backstage Magic Adventures and we've gone to Club 33 each time.....even prior to ABD offering it as part of the Adventure.

    Club 33 is not a guaranteed part of any Adventure, but ABD does their best to make this happen.

    I read how you pioneer the Club 33 event. I like your odds even though Club 33 is not guaranteed.

    To clarify, as long as I book the pre and post nights with the ABD reservation package, transfer is included. Even if I purchase airfare outside of ABD reservation.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Every ABD guest gets the transfers included, regardless of how your airfare is booked.

    As long as your pre and post nights are booked through ABD, transfers are included.

    Should you book pre or post nights on your own, then transfers are not included.

    That being said...I have had guests book pre-nights on their own, rent a car at the airport, return the car at the airport on the day the Adventure is actually to begin and then use ABD transfers to get to the hotel.

    Can't wait to hear more about the Europe trip. Hopefully the details work themselves out soon and you can tell us more about it!

    After seeing the new trips, I think I'll commit to Backstage Magic Dec 14-19.

    Can someone explain what the DIS exclusive trips are? Are they just run by Kevin and others or does it have special pricing or events? If there are special pricing and events can someone let me know what they are?

    Thanks

    I think I can explain this for you.

    Our Dis Exclusive Adventures are just that....they are Adventures exclusive to the Dis.

    I do not run the Adventures. They are regular ABD trips for which we have contracted all of the available space.

    The pricing for all of the current Dis Exclusive Adventures is listed in my first post.

    Because we take over the entire group, we usually get low pricing and we can guarantee that it will not increase.

    We always try to add something to our Dis Exclusive trips.

    We have had special guests such as Marty Sklar, Bob Gurr and Dave Smith speak to our groups. For the upcoming June Backstage Magic Adventure, we have Kevin Kidney and Jody Daly coming to view the Disneyland Parade (which they designed) and explain all of the hidden and no-so-hidden details.

    In the past, we have Jody Benson (the voice of The Little Mermaid) perform a private concert exclusively for our group. She performed many of the most famous Disney songs, in addition to telling stories of her interactions with the Disney Family.

    We have added optional tours for certain Adventures, which were offered to our guests free of charge. Activities have been upgraded.

    We are waiting for details to be finalized on our "custom" European Adventure for September 2014.

    We have also developed a group that loves traveling together. We have new people joining us all the time.

    Finally, these trips must be booked through Dreams Unlimited Trave and me. No one else can book them for you.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Nice value added. Maybe a little magic will be brought around Christmas for the Backstage Magic ABD. Isn't the Candlelight Processional held around that time.

    The February time frame is right around the Oscars. What, if any, aspects of the Hollywood portion of the itinerary do you believe will be impacted?

    We have previously done this Adventure at this time of year.

    We were there just prior to the Academy awards and there was a great deal of activity.

    Both sides of Hollywood Blvd had tall chain link fences erected. There were bleachers near the theater and we could see the large golden statues everywhere.

    While the fences were a bit of an eyesore....being there during the "set up" process was fun.

    It was great to go to the top of Hollywood and Highland and watch from above.

    I might be a little previous here, but will you be running any of these in 2015? I'm an early planner...

    So...how long after these dates will the Dis Exclusive trips be announced, specifically the Disneyland Back Stage one? Trying to wait patiently but very anxious to book...we missed out last year on the ones that we could go on and it won't be happening again! :)
