The rickshaw ride really sets the tone and was a fantastic way to kick off our trip. Taiko drumming was what I was most looking forward to
doing and it did not disappoint. The dinner with the maiko was wonderful. She was delightful and so kind to answer our questions and share what it is like to train to be a geisha.

I did not expect to feel so immersed in the culture as I did on this trip. This isn’t my first Adventures by Disney rodeo and I know to expect some cultural experiences…but this was different. I don’t know how to explain it or why I felt this was somehow unique. I felt more immersed in the country and with the people and less like an outsider looking in. It was just so wonderful to experience Japan this way. I think that, above all, was the biggest surprise for me.

Last but certainly not least, the icing on a truly fabulous cake…James and Tomomi, our Adventure Guides, are both treasures! They made the entire trip truly come alive for everyone!

This is one of our favorite trips we ever took with ABD. Everything was top notch. I am trying to write something special about each trip each day since we have been on 8 ABD. Our most memorable memory in Greece
was wine tasting in Santorini and stomping the grapes to make wine. Oh how much fun did our group have doing this. The space isn't that big but that didn't stop this group from wanting to all be together for the experience. First the kids went. They were singing, dancing, and posing for pictures as they stomped the grapes. We all pretended like we were Greeks and were dancing in that manner. With our hands up in the air, twirling around and around, clapping our hands, yelling out Ola. Ola we sang as we danced around in the grapes. This was such an amazing experience to do and again Disney magic made it happen.

Besides seeing the amazing sites and being completely thrilled by Disney taking care of every detail, one of our favorite memories
was meeting and feeding the llamas up close. Each of our daughters feed the llamas but we still laugh over having a llama sneak up behind our oldest daughter and 'steal' the food that she was holding behind her back so that the llama she was currently feeding wouldn't eat it. It was the ultimate llama ninja sneak attack!

Before joining Adventures By Disney for their Southeast Asia trip, I knew little about Vietnam, its history, or its people. On the first full day of the trip, we took
a boat ride on the Mekong River that gave us the you're not in Wisconsin anymore experience that we were hoping for. We visited a floating village, our daughter made some local rice-based candy, my wife and I bought a great piece of art from a local artist, and we all saw what I think was real life in Vietnam. In the attached photo, some locals let us watch them fish and were happy to show us their catch afterwards. That day was unique, enjoyable, comfortable, educational, and offered something different for every age group. I think it exemplified why we love Adventures By Disney.

The Colosseum is one of the top sites in Rome, for both tourists and Italians. We even saw a bride and groom taking photos in front of the Colosseum one night. Since it is one of the main attractions, I
wanted to see it. Luckily, a tour of the Colosseum was part of our Adventures by Disney Italy itinerary. As we got closer to the large structure, the density of people in the area increased. As we walked in, I saw an enormous line. The line was even longer than the line for Toy Story Mania in the summertime. The line was just to get into the main part of the colosseum but it snaked back and forth and around. We followed our adventure guides and were led to a separate area where we were led right in! I had not expected to use a FASTPASS while we were in Italy but that is essentially what our special entry was. I could not have imagined going with my family on our own to see the Colosseum and waiting hours in line. Disney knows how to run things the right way and get guests those special perks!

If we had to choose a favorite part of our Arizona/Utah adventure - not an easy task - it would probably be the Sedona and the red rock Enchantment Resort area. Being so close to the
red rocks, hiking back into the canyon and coming out on a clearing at the top of rocky path was incredible - the view was spectacular. And having breakfast overlooking the patio/pool area of the resort with rocks as a background was surreal. We didn't have to do anything to enjoy it - just being there drinking it in was a vacation in and of itself. The weather and high desert vistas loaded with that southwest color palette are something we did not want to leave. And our guides, Korey and Tiffany, could not have been more prepared, hospitable, and fun to make the entire trip something we won't forget!
