  • Can I extend my vacation beyond the Adventures by Disney itinerary?Expanded

    Yes, you may stay in Prague before or Vienna after our itinerary.

Please contact a Vacationista for further information

  • How will our group travel between destinations?Expanded

    Your group will travel by motor coach between destinations in Czech Republic and Austria.

  • How strenuous are the activities?Expanded

    Though the majority of the trip's featured activities are not strenuous if you participate on an individual basis, engaging in the full range of scheduled events does require a moderate level of stamina in order to appreciate everything your vacation offers.

    The most physically demanding activity is the ice cave excursion, which includes:
    •  30-minute uphill walk
    •  30-minute downhill walk
    •  Climbing and descending a total of 1,400 stairs within the ice cave itself

    If Guests do not wish to participate in the ice cave tour, they can relax at the scheduled lunch location. However, this still entails a 30-minute uphill walk.

    While most of the trip occurs at about 1,000 feet above sea level, the altitude at the ice cave is approximately 5,433 feet (1,656 meters) above sea level.

    (PLEASE NOTE: This itinerary does require Guests to walk approximately 1-3 miles per day.)

  • What ages are appropriate for this adventure?Expanded

    While we welcome children ages 4 and up on our Austria and Czech Republic trip, we recommend that children be at least 6 years old at the time of travel. This is based on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, time zone differences in the destination, duration of the vacation, extended hours of daily activity programming, number of internal transports between experiences, potential for extreme temperatures in the summer months (and cold temperatures while inside the ice cave), and amount of physical activity (e.g., walking, stair climbing, and hiking). Because each child is different, call a Vacationista to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.

  • What types of meals are served on this Adventures by Disney Trip?Expanded

    Typically, breakfast is served each morning in buffet style and offers a variety of dishes. Dinners and lunches usually include fish, meat, and pasta or rice entrées; vegetables and salad; and desserts and fruit. Some included meals on this trip are served buffet style while others offer a limited-choice menu. Given the nature of group travel, we regret that á la carte menu choices may not always be available. Children-friendly choices are available at all meals. Menu items are subject to change due to the availability and seasonality of foods. In order to allow you and your family time to enjoy meals by yourselves, there are a few meals that are not included in the itinerary. These meals have been planned in locations where you have many dining options available. If you have any questions or concerns about dining at any time during your vacation, your Adventure Guides will be happy to assist you.

  • Is alcohol included with meals?Expanded

    Alcoholic beverages are typically not included with your scheduled meals. However, you may purchase them at your own expense.

  • Can you accommodate special dietary needs?Expanded

    Adventures by Disney will make a reasonable effort to accommodate some special dietary needs at no additional charge. Unfortunately, we may not be able to accommodate all special dietary needs requested. Please contact a Vacationista in advance of your departure to advise us of your needs.

  • Is this itinerary appropriate for travelers with special needs?Expanded

    Please note that this vacation includes activities that present certain challenges to Guests with special needs. It is strongly recommended that persons requiring assistance be accompanied by a companion who is capable of, and solely responsible for, providing assistance. Neither Adventures by Disney nor its suppliers may physically lift or assist Guests onto transportation vehicles. Contact a Vacationista to discuss your needs.

  • What if Adventures by Disney cancels the adventure prior to departure?Expanded

    We will make every reasonable effort to operate the vacations as advertised; however, we reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, we may marginally exceed the stated group maximum size if necessary to accommodate a family. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods, some activities may be disrupted or unavailable. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the land package price. We reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, such as if there are too few Guests, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.
