    I have been tossing up a surprise trip to Tokyo Disney and Hong Kong Disney for Rickys Birthday! URG that's a difficult quest in itself because i don't know where to start and there isn't a quarter of the information on the internet that there is for Disneyland and WDW.

    Well i now know I am going to get about a 2k bonus from work in September so Im very tempted now that Free dining should be coming out in Oct/Nov/Dec to maybe book a trip to WDW and a 3 day cruise as a surprise instead.

    Anyone help me and tell me what to do! :confused3

    Its all so Hard!!

    Lauren - How long do you want to go away for? If it is a shorter period, I'd be tempted to look at HK or Japan.

    AussieWendy wrote a TR for Japan and I've just completed one for HK. They might help.

    I'd personally go to WDW in a shot.....but have you considered 10 days in Paris as an alternative?


    (I'm not being much help, am I?)

    1 week in Hong Kong would be fantastic if you plan to see more than the small Disney there. Maybe Wendy will stop by with her views on Japan.

    well - I spent 4 days at TDL and then you could spend the rest of the time in Tokyo. Jetstar probably has the cheapest flights to Japan, and the food is no more expensive than Australia - esp. if you eat lots of noodles and okonomyaki! Hotels will be more expensive and the exchange rate with Japan is not as good as the Euro and the US.

    I did look at the expedia ie flights were still there Karen but they dont seem to be :( its ok they still have flights for just over $1000 at the moment and I can handle that!

    Do you think Ricky will kill me if i book it and dont tell him until his birthday on the 16th october that we are going to wdw the week after :rotfl2:

    WDW definitely but Jetstar are having a sale to Japan at the moment as well just wondering if you are surprising him how would he book his holidays with work?
    Forget the Jetstar sale the dates are only till the end of July
