I love river cruises as they are so relaxing. And you have luck with the weather. Somehow I missed what the route is, Passau to Budapest or further? I have a house on the dunabe river close to Belgrade, I should check if it is still standing,lol.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Good morning from the town of Passau, Germany! First official day of our Adventures By Disney Danube River Cruise!

Image
When vacationing with Disney you are never far away from "characters!"

Image

Image
Image
Getting a tour of the adorable German town of Passau! It's just like being at Epcot@

This is the plague house! "Bring out your dead!"

Elissa has never seen an organ that big before!!!

Image
We are about to make little marzipan pigs! The sample is on the left. Mine will probably end up looking more like the square block! lol

Image
Image
We are attempting to make marzipan pigs! No promises that they will actually LOOK like pigs! lol

Image
Here is our family of slightly deformed, mostly dysfunctional marzipan pigs!

Image
Kristen had such a great time exploring Passau with the guides from Adventures By Disney!

Image
Image
Image
There has been no shortage of great food so far!

Image
Current view from our stateroom...

We're on a coach to our next excursion! What's on TV? Mickey Mouse of course! This is Adventures By Disney after all! (View is awesome too!)

Image
Currently a couple hundred feet above the trees in Austria! What an amazing view!

Image
Image
Image
Image
This "tree tops" park in Austria is fantastic! Great views and fun activities!

Image
This place is a giant maze of paths, tree houses, and look-out towers higher above the trees in Austria!

Image
Image
Image
Image
This place also has an awesome "never in America" ropes course & playground!



Image
We had a really great time exploring the tree tops in Austria today with Adventures By Disney!

Great report so far! The food looks wonderful and it seems like each day is jam packed with neat activities. One day I think I will try to go on one of these trips. Obviously, you pay a premium when you do Disney anything, but do you think the value is still strong for what you're paying? I know it's early in the trip.

Just kinda of curious but what's the general mix of people on this Adventures by Disney cruise vacation? Families with children, couples, younger, older? Mostly Americans, or is it a good mix of people from Europe, Asia etc?

I am pretty sure it is mostly Americans. I never heard of Disney Adventure Cruises and I worked for Viking Cruises on pretty much the same trip. I could be wrong, but living in Europe, I never heard about this. I would do it in a split second though

Have a look: https://www.adventuresbydisney.com

It's a higher end product, but I think the extra money is well worth it!

It's mostly Americans, some Europeans, almost all families with kids, but a total mix on younger and older kids. No little little kids since the minimum age for this tour was four, but all ages from about 5 to 15.

It's also, and just being honest here, a higher-end clientele. And that doesn't mean people who are pretentious or obnoxious, not st all, in fact it's very much a positive. I've found the group to be in general more polite and courteous. Usually by the end of day one on any RCCL cruise I'm ready to murder at least a half dozen people I've run into, but so far so good with this group. And honestly, I'll pay a premium to be around people that don't annoy me.

^Yeah that's mostly what I thought I just wasn't sure if the higher end product maybe attracted more couples than families but it is a Disney.

Looks like a great trip, I'd totally consider spending the extra money to travel with Disney for a trip like this especially if I were taking my kids, but we've got a few more years for that haha.
