So - Is it going to be the same hotel for the whole trip?

It is Daniel - we'll be releasing more details in the coming weeks.

Finally - a shout out to Eluc: you are on the trip but at the moment your email inbox is bouncing all inbound traffic. If you could PM me with an alternative email address, that'd be great. Thanks!

I wish I had registered for this trip, this is one of my must do destinations. The program you guys put together looks incredible! :)

Can you advise please? For those participants arriving early, is it possible to join the group on Saturday morning at Legoland, down the street from our hotel, or will we need to return to the airport to join up?

Also, what is the dress "code" at the parks? Are shorts acceptable (above the knee) for both men and women?

You do see people wearing shorts in Dubai so you can get away with them. However, it is frowned upon; I would suggest that it's better form to wear extremely light full length trousers while there.

Shorts are not permitted in the shopping mall in Sharjah (where Adventureland is) so you will need to wear long trousers for that day.

Hi coasteraddict,

Everyone will need to meet at the airport (DXB) on the morning of the Saturday 18th (circa 8pm) to kick the trip off.

Legoland may not be our first stop ;)

As I've said in the main Trip Goers forum, there's lots of work going on at the moment on the trip pack; everyone will receive this around a month before departure, and it will contain all the info you need :)

Indeed, sorry - everyone needs to be at DXB for around 8am on the Saturday; we'll confirm timings soon.

This early start at DXB was advertised back in July last year when we put the trip invite out...

Lutz, what times are your flights...?

Hi, it's hard to follow, why don't everyone use the private topic for organizing and other ?
