Is anyone else doing the Adventures By Disney Med Cruise add on for this trip? My daughter and I got the last two spots when we booked last week.

I just booked this cruise and the ABD add on. My daughter and I did the ABD Backstage Magic tour in LA/Disneyland this past summer. It was fantastic and it was one of the reasons that we are going on our second Disney Med cruise so that we can experience the ABD portion of the trip.

I didn't think it was worth the cost... I love ABD, but didn't think that the value was there for what was offered.... I thought that the signature level excursions that we did last time on the Med were more than adequate...

We'll be on the EBTA too as will several others here. We've never done an EBTA before but also love the sea days....for us it's not necessarily about the Ports, it's about being on a Disney ship !

Glad to have you...cya real soon!

I would take the images from the Flicker file. You can select the size you want in Flicker too. But I can also e-mail you an image with as large a resolution as you want. Or, any other photosharing file you want.

Hi there Med cruisers...I'm sure everyone's been doing alot of research/planning but I thought I'd share some links. These were discussed today in the Med Planning 2013 thread I started a while back. Hope this info helps out some folks.

***For anyone who is interested, the Colosseum has released the availability for the "Underground Tour" which allows you to tour the lower level of the Colosseum. We're super excited about this, since when I visited in 2006, this was not yet open to the public.

Tickets + tours are available to be booked here online (make sure you click Collect on site). With advance tix purchase you get to skip the lines. The tour offered by the Colosseum is alot cheaper than the private company options, and includes the combo entry ticket.

http://www.ticketclic.it/gb/HTML/musei/colosseo.cfm

***For anyone else looking, I found the Civitavecchia Port schedule here to determine how many other ships are in town on Rome day. This helped us decide whether or not to take the train back from S. Pietro (we opted not to since there are 4 ships in port on our Rome day):

http://ports.cruisett.com/schedule/I...ome/June_2013/

Nzdisneymom posted a link for trail open at Cinque Terre.

HTH!

Hi, I was looking at this the other but wasn't sure what time would be best to book. What if you miss your tour time? I am sure we would still be allowed to enter but not certain what time would be good. Also, guided or just tour? HHhhhmm, I will have to mull this over.

The link for port is not showing any ships in port for me, very strange. * Just managed to get it working.

Thanks for the links.

I guess it'd depend on what time you plan on getting to Rome. We chose the earliest time since we're doing the Vatican after the Colosseum.

We only booked the Underground Tour b/c that's the one that allows you access to the lower levels. If you're just looking for entrance tix, then you don't need to book a tour at all.

The very first time I went to the Colosseum we did not do a tour and it was fine. But this time we wanted some explanation

Thanks for the info. I am torn and just planing on taking things easy and not book excursions because I have mobility issues and am not sure if I would be up to too much walking. My boys said they would like to go to the Colosseum but they are only 7 & 9 and will be happy with anything. Plan on taking a few days there when the boys are a bit older, so not in too much of to see everything in one day. :-)
