Will the weather be more summerlike or fall? What to do we do in our free time? Is it worth a side trip to Pisa and will Disney set that up for us? We received a letter from Adventures stating the hotel in Venice has been changed from Luna Baglioni to the Hilton Molino Stucky. They did not give a reason for the change. I hope the location is still good as it seems we will now need a boat launch into Venice. We would like to hear from anyone else who has booked this trip or any suggestions from anyone who has already taken it.
Hello, pandw, and Welcome to the ABD Forum!! We have a lot of people here who have taken this trip (it's a very popular itinerary!) so hopefully you'll get lots of answers to your questions.

My husband and I and his parents did the VIVA italia tour a summer ago, and it was everything you would expect from Disney. The guides were beyond knowledgeable and helpful. The bags were always where they should be without your touching them, the trains, motor coaches were of the highest quality and always early. Meals were always ready when they were supposed to be. The local guides were perfect and entertaining and engaging. There are always Disney surprises. And when you enter high volume exhibits such as the Colloseum, Vatican museum, or michelangelo museum, younkers by all the tourists in line, and all the otherntour groups in line. Don't knowmhow they do it, but it is the best vacation. The guides have maps and they circle restaurants you would like, when you are touring a city, they make suggestions fornwhen you have free time on where to shop, eat, photo ops, other museums. And there are always maps for everyone. We did not have children with us, and there are severL times there are special dinners, movies, games, events for the kids and the adults have time alone. At the Medici estate, we had the options of going back to the estate from Florence after a guided tour, or sightseeing on our own in Florence and buzzing back later. We stayed and went to another museum, vizier the gardens, got beautiful photos, many went up the ribs of the Duomo, and everyone ate lots of gelato!

Just 1 year ago DH and I were living our Viva Italia Adventure. It was truly magical and would travel with them in a heartbeat.

Congratulations. You'll love it!

we did this trip with our two daughters (21 &16) and had a wonderful time. All the adjectives you hear about this trip are true and the hotels they have chosen are out of this world. Just do a quick search on Tripadvisor prices you will realize the value of these hotels. Best trip we ever did. One of our group said it so well, " It is like taking a trip with your Dad and Mom", truly that is how well, you are taken care of.

Has anyone brought a 5 year old on a ABD

Would like to take a Disney Italy trip this summer but not sure a 5 year old will keep up. We have a 13 and 10 year old too. Any thoughts? Would cruise be better?
