The pictures are amazing, and I envy you got to see so much "culture" stuff in the museum, and in London.

(not to mention the shows).

Kidzania looks neat, but as someone without kiddos I think it wouldn't be a stop for me. . but great that Kristen has a good time, and the concept is very cool.

my biggest take-away (ha!) from the report was this:

Image


after so many years of hearing comments from friends/relatives/comics about how "awful" the food is in the UK? this looks so damn good. I'll have to go look up the menu at this place, just to see what I'm missing!

can't wait to see the next update.

edit: oooo. . I looked it up, and they have opened a restaurant in Boston, and one in Manhattan!!! (still far away from Texas, but a closer trip than to London). . on my bucket list!

Great pictures. Loved the look of Kidzania, that will be on the bucket list for sure!

Was it hotter in London than in Florida!? We aren't as good at "heatwaves" in the UK!!

Currently it is really hot in Europe. Out here in Frankfurt/Germany they predict 41c for today and that is hot for Euro standards.
I really like the concept of Kidzania, now I just need a kid,lol

I absolutely LOVE the KidZania concept...it's so cool.

The adult version is essentially all the one off experiences you can already do. For example, in Vegas you can drive an exotic car (or NASCAR car at the speedway), fly in a trainer fighter jet, fly in actual boeing flight simulators, shoot just about every weapon imaginable, crush a car with a tank, play with heavy construction equipment....

We have done Disney theme park vacations in every location they offer, we've done Disney Cruises, but this is the first time doing an "Adventures by Disney" vacation! What is "Adventures by Disney?" They offer various tours around the world, but with that high level of Disney quality! You can get more info here: https://www.adventuresbydisney.com/

This vacation we are doing is the Danube River Cruise and we will stop at various places in Germany, Austria, Solvakia, and Hungary! For a trip like this one, Disney works with a river cruise operator and charters out the ship, adds some "Disney flair" to it, and all your guides have that Disney quality you are used to from the parks, in fact, some of them even come from the theme parks!

Let's get this trip started, shall we?

Day one was embarkation day, which really just got us familiar with the ship and the itinerary...

Image
Image
We have just checked in! Our next Disney Adventure starts soon!

Image
Image
Image
We have just boarded our ship! Time to kick off this Adventures By Disney Danube River Cruise!

Image
Image
Image
Image
As soon as you board the ship, everything looks and sounds "Disney!" (Yes, the ship is playing Disney music!)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Here's a quick look at the Stateroom! Yes, it's fantastic and yes, it comes with an iMac!

Image
For "included" ship WiFi, those speeds are not bad at all!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Here is the upper deck of the "Amaviola" ship we are on. It's really nice!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Our current view!

Image
A rose, is a rose, is a rose! The "welcome aboard" orientation on the Amaviola!



Image
Image
Image
Initial dinner on the Amaviola Riverboat! Check out the menus!

Image
Image
Image
Dinner was great! We met our Adventures By Disney guides! This is going to be an AWESOME vacation!

Image
How's THAT for a view??? Embarkation day was a success! The real adventure starts tomorrow!

Click HERE for Part Three of this report!

Oh yes, be sure to POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!
(we took the time to write the report, the least you could do is say something nice about it!) :p

That cruise looks fantastic. I always wanted to do a Disney Cruise or something similar. I will have to take a look at the website soon to see the costs of an adventure at Disney standards but hopefully there could be something more in my price range than the actual cruise ships.

almost wish you'd stopped by Alton Towers to ride The Smiler while in the U.K. just to see the fanboys lose their minds again. ;)

I was always kind of curious how "Disney-fied" the Adventures trips are compared to something like a Disney Cruise, so I'm curious to see how it goes. So far, it's looking really good!
