  1. Here is the trip description and registration link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/washington-dc/ Is the price quoted per family, or per person? The prices are per family, not per person. Are spots still available? We're at our max, but I'm accepting waitlist registrations, please submit a registration form as you normally would. You'll have to pay a $250 per-family deposit to confirm your spots on the waiting list. (I'll send you an email with payment information after I receive your registration.) NOTE: It’s difficult to determine where families are on the waiting list. Not everyone on the list will follow through if offered spots, so even if there are 10 (or 100) families ahead of you, you may actually be the next family on the list. If spots come available, your deposit will be applied to your total. If spots don't come available by July 31, or I have to cancel the trip due to COVID-19, your deposit will be refunded in full. If you decide not to go after being offered spots, your deposit will not be refunded. Do you do "photo stops" or "fly-bys" on this tour? I plan to go inside (or get close to) each site listed in the description. For example, we'll go inside the White House, not just do a group photo from the outside, and we won't view the monuments from a bus window, but get up close and personal. I prefer to experience the places we visit rather than just crossing them off a list. This is contingent on getting government approval for tours (it's rare that we don't, and it's usually due to government shutdowns). If you're comparing different itineraries with long lists of sites you'll visit, ask which ones are photo stops and fly-bys, and which ones you'll actually spend time at and go inside. Are our tours guided? Some are guided, some are self-guided. I live in the area - can I join your group for the day? We have a limited number of tour spots, so they're reserved for my group. Can we opt out of the hotel, specific tours, etc.? This is a package deal, with required minimums to qualify for group discounts. You won't be able to opt out of the hotel. You can opt out of any tour on the itinerary, but you won't receive a refund for any missed tours/events. What hotel will we be using? What is our exact itinerary? I'll share hotel information, itinerary, etc., closer to our travel dates in case there are unexpected changes. All of the hotels I partner with are mid-range (for price and value), highly rated, family-friendly, in good areas of town, and near restaurants. Why do I need a cellphone for this trip? I use a mass text messaging system during the trip, so a cellphone with unlimited texting and a portable charger/power bank you can carry with you is required. I have a family of 5, 6, 7, (etc.) - can we all share one room? I have a baby, toddler, preschooler - do they count in the price? The hotel allows a maximum of four people per room due to fire codes. If you have more in your party, you'll have to get two (or more) rooms. This trip is limited to ages 5 and up. Should people with mobility issues go on this trip? Will we have buses? We won't have buses this time. Due to the heavy walking associated with this trip and logistical issues with using public transportation, I don't recommend this trip for anyone with mobility problems. What happens if I get sick, have health issues, or a death in the family? If it's before June 1, 2020 and I have a waiting list, I'll try to replace your family. If I can replace all of your spots, I'll refund everything but the $250-per-person cancellation fee. If it's June 1, 2020 or later, I won't be able to refund anything. Travel insurance is recommended. I have a family of 5 or 6 or 7 or 8. What's the price? Family of 5: combine the price for a family of 2 and a family of 3. Family of 6: double the price for a family of 3. Family of 7: combine the price for a party of 3 and a party of 4. Family of 8: double the price for a party of 4. And so on... Have any other questions? Please reply in this thread and I'll answer and add it to the list!

    Universal 2020 - FAQs

    What type of tickets will you offer? How much are they? We're offering two types of park-to-park (hopper) tickets: 2-day, 2-park ($166) 3-day, 3-park ($214) Do the tickets include tax, etc.? The price includes everything, except parking (currently $26 per car). There are no hidden charges. Are the tickets discounted? You're saving $148+ per 2-day, 2-park ticket, and $180+ per 3-day, 3-park ticket that includes Volcano Bay, comparing it to the online discounted price as of 12/8/19. (Your savings may be more if they increase prices during the year.) What dates are our tickets valid for? Tickets will be valid November 1-30. However, all park days must be used within 7 days. After you use it the first day, you'll have 6 days left to use the rest of the ticket. They'll expire after that and unused days won't be refunded. Do I have to register for the Disney trip, too? No, they're two separate trips, so you can register for one and not the other. I want to do Disney World *and* Universal. Do I need to register and pay for them at the same time? No, you can register for one now, and wait until later for the other one. Will you offer the behind-the-scenes tour (educational program) again? Yes, we're offering Universal's excellent Behind the Adventure tour this year. The cost is $27 per person. (NOTE: Attendance at an educational program isn't required to get the discounted Universal tickets.) Will you get discounts at a Universal hotel for our group? In order to streamline, I won't get group rooms at Universal in 2020. If we stay onsite at a Universal Resort, will we be able to get the Early Admission perks with these tickets? Early Admission is tied to your resort stay, so you'll get Early Admission through your hotel room key, even with our tickets. Enjoy! Universal Trip Description & Registration Link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/universal/ Have more questions? Post them in this thread and I'll answer as soon as possible.
  3. I'm having fun planning new adventures for us! To fit all of them in, I won't be able to do some trips as frequently. I won't do the spring Disney trip next year, for example, but I'll keep the fall trip. I'll try to announce dates as far in advance as possible so you can plan. What new trips do you want me to add to the lineup? Dianna

    Universal 2018 FAQs

    What dates are our tickets valid for? Tickets will be valid through the month of November. However, all park days must be used within 7 days. For example, if you use the first park day on Monday, November 12, you'll need to use remaining days by Sunday, November 18. What type of tickets will you offer? We're offering 2-day, 2-park, and 3-day, 3-park tickets this year. See my website for more information about each. (These are the only two ticket types I'm offering.) Are the tickets discounted? Yes, by $100+ to almost $200 per ticket, depending on the type of ticket, and whether you're comparing it to the online price or gate price. If you want the exact discount, go to Universal's website and compare their price with ours. Do I have to register for the Disney trip, too? No, Universal is no longer an add-on to our Disney trip - they're two separate trips, so you can register for one and not the other. I want to do Disney World *and* Universal. Do I need to register and pay for them at the same time? You'll register and pay for each trip separately, so you can register for one now, and wait until later to register for the other one. Will you offer the behind-the-scenes tour (educational program) again? Yes - I'll offer the Behind the Adventure tour on Monday, November 12, 8:00 am. It's an excellent tour, and I highly recommend it for middle to high school students. Younger students, around 9 and up, will enjoy it too, but may not be able to ride all the attractions that are featured. More details are available at my website. This tour is not required. It costs $27 per person (students and parents). Will you get discounts at a Universal hotel for our group? We don't have a group block at Universal this year, so stay wherever you prefer. Have more questions? Post them in this thread and I'll answer as details are finalized. Universal Trip & Registration Link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/universal/
