We just went to Germany in the spring, and while we didn't go with ABD, we did do a lot of the same things, so I would be happy to try and answer questions if you have any.

Neuschwanstein and Rothenburg were amazing, and I am sure it will be even better with Disney taking you there

Thanks. We are starting to get in the vacation mood, now that school is over for the year and I anticipate having some questions.

One thing I have been thinking about is whether to add a global chip to my cell phone and pay the fees or to purchase a pre-loaded phone when we get there. A friend of mine said that buying a phone there may be cheaper. Did you have to deal with this?

We turned our phones off as soon as we left Toronto, and didn't turn them on till we go home, so I am no help there! All of our hotels had free wireless internet (and we brought a tablet), so we used that to stay in touch.

We will be going to Germany"Once upon a Fairytale" in early July and the weather forcast show warm during the day a cold at night. Do we need a warm coat for the evening? looks like summer and winter clothes are needed.Any suggestions? We are use to South Florida weather so 50s is winter for us.

We were there in spring, and found it to be much colder than home (and we live in Canada, not Florida!). I think it will always be cooler in South Germany (Bavaria) because of the mountains. Neuschwanstein in particular is pretty high up, so there was a lot of snow when we were there in April, even though there was no snow in Munich.

I would suggest wearing layers, that is what we did in spring and that worked well.

Welcome to the DISBoards, and the ABD Forum, richflour! Be sure & tell us all about your trip!

From what I've heard about this trip, I think your daughter will love it!

Does Disney only offer trips to the south of Germany?

I mean if anyone of you is in North Rhine-Westphalia, just contact me, I will give you some information about some nice places.

If you have other questions about Germany just feel free to contact me!

Prost.

Adventures by Disney currently only has one Germany itinerary, which goes to Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Waldeck, Rothenburg and Munich. Where is that in relation to North Rhine-Westphalia? Thanks for your offer of help; I'm sure folks doing extra traveling while in Germany will appreciate that.

Frankfurt is not far away from my hometown. Waldeck is also not too far away, but there is no Autobahn to the Eder-sea, so it is a very complicated journey

North Rhine Westphalia = Cologne, Dortmund, Essen, Düsseldorf and so on

We are pretty excited we booked our "once upon a fairytale" adventure today! we were also told that there are already a few children close to dd age on our tour!

Normally I'd say let the planning begin....but I guess unlike other vacations most of the planning is already done.....hmmm so then let the countdown begin!
