    Great..yeah we are supposed to meet there in the morning. I thought it will be very convinient to stay at the same hotel before the tour

    Yeah its so great that the tour is now going ahead on that date. I’m actually arriving on the 3rd I’m looking for somewhere to stay for the first couple of days then staying the day before at the Kyoto. I’m staying four extra days after the tour ends in New York before flying home. The first night after the tour I’m staying at the Sheraton Brooklyn but then I have to find somewhere else. The best part about the whole thing is that the second day of the tour is my 31st birthday!! Can’t wait to meet you all we’re gonna have sooo much fun!!! :-)

    I’m sooo excited that I’m achieving my dream that I’m driving my family and work mates mad. :-) I’ve paid for my flights and paid the deposit for the tour. I now just have to pay off the rest and my travel insurance. What about the extra things on the tour are you guys are planning on doing any of them?

    Oh yay Im relieved to hear its definite departure. I get to LA on the 3rd also. Am thinking of doing Disneyland on the 4th as I want to do Universal on one of the tour free days. I can’t decide between the two so I figure I’ll do both. I also have 5 nights in new York on the end. I want to see a show in Vegas. I have been looking into Criss Angel. Would anyone else be interested in that? Rumor is you have to buy that well in advance as they sell out quickly. If any of you are on Facebook too let me know and we can be friends! I wish time would speed up to
    September…

    That sounds like fun!! I’m not much of a gambler so was planning on seeing a show in vegas or getting married lol. I’m planning on doing Universal too I’m also planning on going to Paramount Pictures on the 4th or 5th depending on my jetlag. I looked on the website and the Paramount tour is either $50 for a basic 2 hour tour or the VIP tour which looks more fun is $125. How much is Criss Angel?
    Cause I’m planning on getting a tattoo in New York after the tour for my birthday and to remember the trip so I have to have enough money for that.
    I’m on Facebook and would love to befriend any of you so we can become friends and get psyched together.
    My name is Karen Beavis I’m from Dapto NSW if that helps.

    thats funny I was told by my travel agent we could only stay an extra night either side of the tour after that you have to pay the normal price.

    Hi guys
    Looked up the Criss Angel show for those of us who want to see it. The tickets are $250 for good seats so if we want to go we should decide on a date and all go together.

    Whoah where did you look that up? On the MGM Grand site that I was looking at where the tickets were, the highest price was $180 for a tickets. I’d be happy to even go c or b tickets if people didn’t want to pay that much. Link below to the booking site. The thing is how do we all book and pay together so that we can sit together? https://reservations.mgmmirage.com/bookingengine.aspx?pid=LUX&host=ticketing&code=HomeBE2012

    I looked it up on the Criss Angel in Las Vegas site. The $250 though is for the good seats for the higher up seats it gets cheaper. I’m happy to go with whatever too. Maybe we should all decide on which day we want to go since we’ll be in Vegas for 2 days then buy the tickets all together once we know who wants to go
