    Anyone gotten at 2018 pre-trip package yet? After receiving 3 of the same last year, curious what the new ones might consist of :)

    Hmm. So they are clearly sticking with the not much approach. Kind of sad. I remember the old days when there were backpacks, hats, and all kinds of fun things.

    They used to send countdown calendars??? Didn't know. But that one wasn't included. I had someone on Etsy do a custom design for me :) I have one for DCL, WDW and DLR too.

    Yes, they included countdown calendars. They weren't fancy at all, just a one page cartoony thing (different for each itinerary) that showed a little over a month prior to your trip, and you could X down the days. Every few days, it would have a small picture of some activity you were getting closer to each day. I used to put them up in my cubicle at work, and X out each day. I *loved* that! I never understood why they got rid of them. It probably cost them 5 cents to make, if that.

    Can you let me know where you got yours?? I'd LOVE to get one!

    Sayhello

    Thanks! Looking forward to it! I've hear all good things. I'm hoping we get Dusty and James for our trip. What is your next ABD trip?

    Oh how fun! Who knows why. I'm still hoping they decide to sell merchandise online again. Sure, this the link to the store I went to on Etsy. I just sent her a PM and asked if she could do a custom one for me that said Adventures by Disney.

    Wait? You got your package TWO MONTHS ahead of time?? What is the world coming to! :) You are going to LOVE China!!

    Thanks! Did you have to provide her with the lettering, or did she just use a generic Disney font?

    Sayhello

    Me too...just spent way too much time on Etsy :rolleyes1

    Thanks for the link...I think I must have this...hopefully she can add DCL for me!

    Yup! I think that is the soonest I've received a pre trip package. No, I didn't need to provide her with anything. I just asked if she could make it say Adventures by Disney instead of just Disney.


    OK that made me totally LOL

    I know what you mean. I have been too, trying to put together a Dapper Day outfit. Glad there were Amex offers for Etsy :flower:

    I don't see why she wouldn't. Adding DCL seems easier than Adventures by Disney :D

    Our guides were Joe and Christian on the China ABD. We loved both of them!

    Our next ABD is Greece Adults Only in September. Still six months to go, but I would love a countdown calendar. Thanks for the link!

    What is the thing that looks like it is standing on its side between the countdown calendar and the small zip bag in your pic? It just occurred to me that we will be getting one of these for our BSM trip this summer.

    It's one of those small drawstring bags. I use them for dirty clothes or as shoe covers when packing.

    Have any June travelers gotten their boxes yet? I am impatiently waiting for mine to arrive for our June 17 trip.

    Our trip is June 7 and we haven’t gotten our box yet. I think it is still a little to early.

    Boo. ABD set my expectations high when the May travelers got their boxes 2 months early.
