    SingingMom, sorry I just saw your question. I didn't do a trip report, but if you have any questions, I would tell you our experience. We did that one 4 years ago, and I think it has changed a little. My girls were 8 and 14 at the time of the trip and they still talk about it. :goodvibes

    I would love to do more with Adventures by Disney, but its so expensive (especially the airfare). We are hoping to do Scotland next year, but it all depends on how things go with finances this year. Plus we're also waiting to see if anything new comes out. lol

    Was just notified by my travel agent today that Disney has changed the Tuscany villa to Villa San Paulo. Looks fine, anyone know anything??

    Wow! The rooms look nice and cozy. The villa in Artmino used to be horse stables converted into hotel rooms. Let us know how the drive up to the new villa is. Many got sick with the winding road up and down the previous villa. :)

    Hi Lydsmom! It's our first ABD trip, too. Our daughter is our only as well -- I'm so glad there will be another girl close in age. Daughter is 6+ now, will be 7 in August (she's in 1st grade this year, 2nd grade in the fall). The three of us live just outside of DC. I look forward to meeting you.

    SayHello -- for the record Aug 11 trip: Skaminsk, wife, daughter (will be 7).

    We are a family of 3 -- dh, daughter 9 years and myself. It's our first trip to Europe and am looking at dates and possibilities. The post just previous caught my attention because we too would like our 9 year old daughter to have some fun with kids her age. We could do the same week in August. Did you book yet? A little hesitant, but ready, I think! :cheer2:

    Hi oLora
    Yes, we have just booked. Like you, we wondered if this would work out, but now that we are booked, I am starting to feel good about the decision. we did have a bit of a wait to find out if rooms were available. It seems as if the trip was getting pretty full. They also told me the ages of the other kdis, and it looks like several within the 8-11 year range. So if you are thinking about it, do it now! Good luck!

    Hi oLora,

    We booked as well. Our daughter may be the youngest on the trip (6 now, turning 7 in May), but she's mature and outgoing, so I hope the 9 year-olds will let her hang with them.

    Actually, with ABD's current policy, your trip is a "go" at 70 days. :) But congrats at 47 days to go! It's close! You should be getting your box soon!
