    Thanks for that info. I had never heard of that as a DVC benefit. I'm sure several people here will be interested to hear how this all works out for you. Please let us know!

    We adopted our daughter from Russia when she was four. She's now fourteen and we'd love to take her and our boys back to Russia, but it is NOT an easy place to visit as tourists. We'd love a Russian tour. I'd think with the tremendous amount of Russian adoptions by Americans over the last 15 years, it would be a popular trip....

    When is "release day"? I am looking to book an ABD Germany trip for honeymoon in 2014 and would like to book as soon as I can to avoid any price increases. When you are paying for a wedding I try to save money whereever I can!

    If you listen to the most recent DIS podcast (3/26/13 News,Housekeeping Rapidfire at the 39:15 mark), Kevin "annouced" / confirmed what I wrote above that... DVC members "guaranteed to get the lowest price" on ABD trips!

    We just came off the Fantasy on Saturday and went to the ABD presentation and spoke with the representative at the booth. He was adamant that cash ressies made by DVC members always get the opening day price even if prices have gone up. He made this statement several times. We are strongly considering our first ABD for next year waiting for dates to come out.

    We would also love a Russia trip with 2 kiddos adopted from Russia. Would be so much easier to take them back "Disney style" than to do it on our own.

    Russia would be a great ABD destination. DCL did a two day stop in Russia on our 2010 Baltic cruise so they have some experience in the country. Even with two full days and White nights in Russia, I felt that there was a lot that we missed. I would definately consider that trip for 2014 or 2015.

    I suspect there will be some new things for DVC members. On past trips I've never heard the guides mention DVC or ask the guests if they are DVC members, but they brought it up several times on our recent trip.

    The feedback survey question lists the same destinations as last year, I think. Our guide mentioned that he thought the Yosemite trip would return someday. They still have Spain, Czech Republic and some other destinations that were once offered, but discontinued, so maybe those will come back someday too. Mostly they ask about places they already offer trips to. Here's the question

    If you were to travel with Adventures by Disney® in the future, what destination(s) would you be most interested in?
    (Please check all that apply.)

    Arizona & Utah

    I guess the DVC thing would be paying the same cost even if you book when the price has gone up. They are currently offering a New York exclusive ABD for DVC members as well.

    I was told by the ABD guide/rep on the Fantasy 2 weeks ago that the release date would be June 1st. He seemed pretty certain. He also hinted that ABD was hiring quite a few people that speak Portuguese. Russia would be a great destination too, though.

    Hmmm. I don't think they've ever offered the Olympic Peninsula or Brice & Zion before. Have those always been on the survey?
