Texas/MidWest looks totally awesome. I hope the dates do not conflict with my school schedule. It's been 3 years since my last TPR trip and I'd love to go on another one next year.

I just looked it up. Early June depart and Late June arrive. BOS to TYO. If I went on multiple airlines, I can get it down to $1181.10. Non-stop on AA is $2012.10. These flights are coach. The cheapest first class seats cost around what Japan Airlines wants coach. Delta for $5158.58 and AA non-stop for $6521.10 (Other airlines have much better first class seats). Since it is a very long flight, I do think it is better to break it up into 1-stop on same airline so you are less likely to lose your luggage.

Yeah, $1200+fees sounds pretty good!

So 3K for the parks, 1.5K flight (fees, taxis, etc.), and since it is a month, I'm thinking $30 spending money a day for food/supplies/etc. So $900 for that and I'm thinking $600 as emergent cash.

So I think I will need a minimum of $6K for the trip.

Even if that's the case. The trips are so worth every dollar spent. The new hotness tour was the best theme park trip I've been on.

I have two questions:
1. Any chance Holiday World will make the Mid West Tour?

2. Also on the Texas/Mid West Tour, could you skip the Texas part of the tour and meet up with the group for rest of Mid west? (not that I don't want ERT on NTAG or iRON) If not, I'm still very interested in that whole tour.

I also wonder about Holiday World. Logistically, I am unsure where that would fit during the trip, but that would be awesome to make a stop there.

Japan!!! :lover:

Are the dates/time frames provisional? Or will the trips definitely run in the times that are specified on the questionnaire?

The reason I ask is that my best friend is getting married at the end of June, so it doesn't look like I'd be able to go. If not, I'll wait for the next time =)

Holy crap, Texas/Midwest trip. If I could, I would absolutely put my deposit down now for that.

Time to start saving!

Any chance the Schwarzkopf @ Isla San Marcos Parque Tematico, Could be added to the Mexico trip as an add on?


I don't think we would add the Aguascalientes area on to the Mexico Trip. We're trying to do some 'cheaper, shorter' International trips for our participants who have been asking for that as an option.

I think you'd be able to add on that area with a couple of people to the trip no problem and I'd be happy to help!

Taylor Finn wrote:Robb and Elissa, I really am interested in the Northern Japan trip, but I had a quick question concerning the price. On New Hotness, I remember one of you mentioning the price of Hotels on Disney property being very high.
1. Will we most likely be staying on property (I'm sure the hotels are fantastic).
2. Will there be an option for Quad occupany for the Disney portion? I assume it would be a stretch, but I figured I'd ask anyway.


The trip would most likely include a stay at a partner Disney hotel such as the Hilton Tokyo Bay. This is on property, but not an official hotel. (Think WDW Swan and Dolphin, but even closer to the action!)

If people were going to add on time at Disney (which we will be doing, and offer to help others) you could totally try and get some more people to crash in a room. Keep in mind this is Japan, and it will be very hard to find rooms with more than two beds. The official Disney hotels do have some three bed rooms, but they're very expensive.

This is just a basic questionnaire to get an idea of which trips you'd like to see offered. They could easily change in makeup before they're actually announced so we will not put airports on them. If you can't figure out a basic idea of what the airfare would be just post or email. It's not too hard to figure out rough ideas.

Of course. We always open up the private trip forums and have a thread dedicated to watching flight prices and meeting up so people don't have to travel alone if they don't want to.
