    Washington DC 2020 - FAQs

    Hi Joe, I'm still accepting waitlist applications with a deposit of $250 per family (not per person). Here are the terms: The deposit will be applied to your total if you go on the trip. If I offer you spots for this trip and you don’t go, you’ll lose your deposit. If I cancel the trip due to COVID-19, you’ll get your deposit back. If no spots become available for your family, you’ll get your deposit back. I'm currently weeding out waitlist families who aren't able (or don't want to) go if offered spots, so it's a good time to get on the waiting list if you're definitely certain you'll go if offered spots. To get on the waiting list, submit a registration: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/washington-dc/ Warmly, Dianna

    Washington DC 2020 - FAQs

    Hi Dianna! Are you still taking people on the waiting list for this trip? We had a trip to DC planned originally for last week, and now we're trying to figure out another time.

    It varies by policy, and most of the time "any reason" isn't really any reason, so read policies carefully if and when you decide to buy. Warmly, Dianna

    I haven't bought my trip insurance yet either. I am waiting to see what happens I guess. At what point do you need to purchase to get the cancel for any reason rider Cressie?

    We're rescheduling this trip for September 2020 due to COVI9-19. If all looks clear this summer, I may reopen registration so more families can join us. Warmly, Dianna

    Hi Cressie, Again, I recommend waiting to see how things play out. If Disney opens late in the summer or into fall, there may be very low crowds through the rest of the year until attendance rebounds. It may be the best time to go. Warmly, Dianna

    to clarify....we have not bought our trip insurance yet but paid for our tickets in January.

    Dianna, Re: your statement above.....I think we all know that Disney will likely be closed much longer than the current two weeks. With that in mind, I'm thinking our trip dates have the possibility of being incredibly busy and not ideal. Do you think given everything that is going on, they will rethink their no-refund policy? If they don't open until summer (maybe late summer!), that could make the fall insane.....And I don't think trip insurance will let you cancel because crowds will be crazy (too late for the cancel for any reason rider). Thanks, Cressa

    Dave, if you're asking due to COVID-19, I recommend waiting until closer to our trip dates and we'll see how things are going. I'll probably have more flexibility with refunds if the park is affected then like it is now. Warmly, Dianna

    Is it possible to buy this 3rd party trip insurance against the non-refundable portion of the trip in Nov 2020? Looks like park tickets and special programs?

    Hi Jessica, we're flying into Siem Reap, Cambodia, and out of Hanoi, Vietnam. Warmly, Dianna

    Vietnam & Angkor Wat 2021 - FAQs

    Where do we fly into and out of. Trying to see how much airfare would be on top of what is included in the trip.
  18. Here is the trip description and registration link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/vietnam-and-angkor-wat/ Is the price quoted per family, or per person? The price is per person. Are spots still available for this trip? How do I get on the waiting list? I'll post updates on my website (link above) regarding the status of the trip. If it's full and I'm still accepting waitlist registrations, please submit a registration form as you normally would. A $250 per-person non-refundable deposit will be required to confirm your spots on the waiting list. (I'll send you an email with payment information after I receive your registration.) If spots come available, your deposit will be applied to your total. If spots don't come available by August 15, 2020, your deposit will be refunded in full. If you decide not to go after being offered spots, your deposit will not be refunded. So make sure you really do want to go before registering for my waiting list. Can we opt out of the hotel, specific tours, etc.? This is a package deal, so you won't receive a refund if you opt out of any hotel, site, or tour on this trip. Can you tell us what hotels we'll be using? What's our day-to-day itinerary? Things may change as we get closer to our travel dates, so I have to wait to share hotel information, itinerary, etc. I've chosen hotels that I think would be a good fit for our group, and I've upgraded where possible. However, I've never personally been to these hotels, and standards in Vietnam and Cambodia may not be the same as they are here. Our rooms may be smaller, service may not be as good, etc. That said, I think we'll be pleased with most (hopefully all) of them. Does your website list everything we're doing? My website lists most of what we're doing, but I may be able to add things here and there. The itinerary is subject to change, regardless. How is this trip different from your other trips? I plan and operate most of my trips, but am partnering with an outside company for our Vietnam & Angkor Wat trip. I don't have complete control over the details, but have customized the trip as much as possible to enhance the experience for our group. I have a larger family and have very young children. Can we all share one room? The hotels we're using allows up to three people per room. If you have more than three people in your party, you'll have multiple rooms, and at least one adult must sleep in each room. This trip is limited to ages 8 and up. I have a baby, toddler, preschooler - do they count in the price? This trip is limited to ages 8 and up, and everyone counts in the price. Should people with mobility issues go on this trip? This is the first time we've done the trip, so I can't speak from personal experience. Based on my research, however, I don't recommend this trip for anyone with mobility problems or for anyone who uses a wheelchair. Have any other questions? Please reply in this thread and I'll answer and add it to the list!

    Welcome! Come on in!

    Hi Molly, We hope the Coronavirus won't impact any of our trips. I haven't had to cancel a trip yet, and hope we won't have to. Warmly, Dianna

    Welcome! Come on in!

    I am very interested in our family joining you guys on a trip or two this year. But I am really curious what everyone is thinking about this coronavirus scare. Will you cancel the trip if it is bad?
  21. I think this is the description for the photography: Guided by a professional from the Disney Fine Art Photography team and a Disney facilitator, participants will discover photographic tools and elements that will enhance their photo storytelling.
  22. Here's one for the CEL portion: In this field study, students have the opportunity to step back in time and discover some of the historical background of Walt Disney’s animation and the techniques used by the celebrated Ink & Paint artists to create the great Disney animated classics.
  23. Here's one for Drawing a Disney Character: In this learning adventure, participants discover how basic geometric shapes combine to create iconic Disney characters who evoke a myriad of emotions. Guided by a Disney artist, students use artist-quality materials to illustrate their very own Disney character. Along the way, they’ll add some basic techniques and tricks to their repertoire of core art skills—which will help give their future drawings a professional edge!
  24. Hello there, Are there descriptions for the Animation & Drawing a Disney character and Animation & Photography? I have looked I just can't find anything. Thank you JulieAnne

    Travel Insurance

    For trip insurance, I recommend going to https://www.insuremytrip.com/ to research and compare the different policies. Look for ones that insure children free to see if they're a better price. Insurance that covers emergencies/problems (medical, lost luggage, or whatever) during trips can usually be purchased close to travel dates, but check the different policies to make certain of the purchase deadline. Triple check to see what they cover and what proof is required (doctor’s letter, etc.). Narrow it down to 3 policies, then call the different companies with any questions you have before making a final decision. Warmly, Dianna
