Trip Planning

How do I get to know where you're going next during your trips? Is there a kind of calendar or live ticker?

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I think the best answer for this would probably be "Go on one."

I also seem to recall that they discourage "random meetups" with the trip groups. If you personally know someone on the trip, that can be a different story.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Q: Can we meet up with the trip? Maybe for just a day? or two?
A: TPR members are always welcome to meet up with the tour, however unless the day is officially opened up to non-tour participants, like as a TPR "bash" event, you would not be able to take part in any perks that we've organized. (Exclusive Ride Time, backstage tours, meals, etc). Those are ONLY for tour participants. We also recommend that if you do want to meet up with the tour that you either come with someone or know someone on the trip that you are meeting up with. People on the trips usually form their own groups, and while we don't mean to sound "clique-ish" or anything, it is hard for a complete stranger to a group to try to "hang out" when everyone has been traveling together for several days at a time. We will try to do meet-ups, or a "Bash" at some point on every trip so that locals in the area can come and hang out and take part in our ERT sessions, tours, etc.

Also, Robb & Elissa tend to be very busy on these trips. Keep in mind that these trips are actually "work" for Robb & Elissa and many times are having to help the park coordinate events on the fly (ERT sessions, backstage tours, lunches, evening activities, etc) and when they aren't "working" they do try to have a bit of a vacation themselves with their family, and that doesn't always allow time to meet up with people for the day. Not to sound rude or anything, but they are more than happy to meet up with members, take a ride or two, but don't expect that by coming to a park when a TPR tour is there that automatically means you'll be hanging out with Robb & Elissa for the entire afternoon.

We are just trying to set realistic expectations here.
