  1. Sounds like a great trip. One question, Why do the buses return at 5:00 p.m.? It is the height of rush hour in Chicago…please consider a 5:45 p.m. return. You would still arrive at the same time, but not sit in traffic. It would give people more flexibility, for example, if you see a play @ 2:00 p.m.

  2. If the trip is during a weekday not many educators can go. It would be more useful if it is organized on a weekend.

  3. Is there an accommodation for a walker? Can my daughter (has authorized access to my account) and my grandson (age 16) join me?

    1. Thank you for your question, after you board the bus we can then fit the walker underneath if that works for you. Your daughter & grandson are welcome to join you if they’re free that day, it is $25 per person.

  4. We would love to be there after dark to walk through the streets to see all the Christmas lights. Leaving at 5:00 is too early and we don’t want to feel rushed. Maybe the bus can leave Racine later like 9:30am.

    1. Thank you Mari, I will share this as we plan for next year’s trip. We have locked in the timeline for this year with our staff & chartered buses.

    1. Hi Sarah! We do not have a date for 2018 yet, but we should shortly. We will post information about the event as soon as we know more.

  5. Do you have any info on the 2019 trip? I am saving a vacation day so that I can go this year. I am really looking forward to finally going!

    1. Thank you for your question Jeanie, as soon as we have a date finalized for this year I will reach out directly to let you know.
