Adventures by Disney

Adventures by Disney, learn from our Adventure

We did it!  After a lot of planning we took an Adventures by Disney trip and yes it was Awesome.  We decided to do something unique and different so we booked the Danube Adventures by Disney River Cruise.

Here is our Adventures by Disney journey.

We have always wanted to take an Adventures by Disney (ABD) trip someplace unique.  The Adventures by Disney Danube River Cruise looked interesting and appealed to us.

First this Adventures by Disney trip is different from the others as you unpack once and your room travels with you.  Being on AmaWaterways AmaViola allowed us to unpack and spend our time seeing Europe instead of moving from hotel to hotel every day or so.  This type of Adventures by Disney was appealing to us.  Also with two kids we know food can be difficult at times.  We have been to Paris before and spent over $100 on lunch only to have the kids not eat it and later complain that they are hungry.  This can get frustrating and costly.  With the AmaWaterways river cruise as an Adventures by Disney the kids could get anything they wanted.  Breakfast had loads of options, lunch was always fantastic and dinner the kids could eat at their own buffet if they wanted.

This also brings be to another reason we booked an Adventures by Disney.  We knew there would be families on the vacation.  It would not be just Lisa and I in a car or on the metro with our kids, trying to figure out how two get from place to place.  Everything was taken care of with Adventures by Disney and not only that, our kids were entertained and not sitting in the back of a rental car bugging us to find out how much longer.  Our kids were with the Disney Adventure Guides, playing games, or hanging out with their new friends as we were on a bus ride to a castle, or farm.

The kids had a blast and so did we.  That’s something that made this trip so wonderful.

Is an Adventures by Disney worth the price?

We get the question often after returning from our Adventures by Disney River Cruise.  Is any vacation worth the price?  I think it’s about the value.  Sure you can backpack across Europe and stay in youth hostels and sleep on the train.  There are loads of ways to vacation and they all have advantage and disadvantages.  An Adventures by Disney vacation is not priced the same as touring Europe on your own.  But it’s about the value and Adventures by Disney offers a great deal of value for what you pay.

I only get a limited amount of time off each year and I like to make sure that everyone enjoys the vacation we plan.  Adventures by Disney met and far exceeded our expectations.  Would we book an Adventures by Disney again?  100% yes.  This was the best vacation we have ever done, and we are travel agents, so we travel a great deal.

Come Along on our Adventures by Disney

I put together a short film of our travels during our Adventures by Disney trip.  I wanted to make our Adventures by Disney River Cruise video short, fun and have a way to showcase some of the highlights from our river cruise.


I also did a short film showing our stateroom on AmaWaterways on the AmaViola.  We had two staterooms that were right next door to each other on the third floor deck on AmaViola.  The staterooms on AmaWaterways are very well appointed.  There is a Mac / TV in your room with free WIFI, a Mini Fridge with waters, USB ports by the bed to charge your and cellphones and USB devices.  The closet has two full sized umbrellas if needed, a safe, and lots of storage.  Even the bathroom on AmaWaterways is large for a river cruise bathroom.  The shower is a nice size with modern tile and shower head options.  We also had an indoor and outdoor balcony.  There are full size windows floor to ceiling, that you can view the river from, or slide the balcony door to sit outside and enjoy the view.
