AbD Germany or Ireland?

We had a spectacular time on our City of Knights and Lights Adventure last year. Our first trip to Europe and we were thrilled with the Adventures by Disney experience! This year we would like to take another trip. My pick was Amalfi Coast, but DH and DD19 want Germany or Ireland. Those of you who have taken these trips - which would YOU pick? Thanks for the feedback! :-)

I have been on the Ireland Abd and have Germany on my Bucket list. Ireland was awesome and i am sure rhe Germany one is equally as good. I would figure out when you want to go and see what trips work out best fo you and go from there because I honestly dont think you can have a "bad" experience with Abd no matter what rip you take

I have done both of these trips and loved each one but I think Germany was my favorite as it was my first ABD and it was in the fall which was a delightful time to visit with lower crowds and beautfiful fall colors and we had a small group of 21 travelers (5 little girls). We did one pre and one post stay which I would recommend but if I could only done one I would make it the prestay as Munich is too big city for me. You will enjoy either trip or the Amalfi coast-I loved that area of Italy as well.

We were in Germany last year, although not with ABD. We wanted ABD, but decided to save the money and copy their Germany itinerary (for the most part). It was amazing! I can't even imagine how much more amazing it would be with ABD.

I am normally not a fan of big cities (I live outside Toronto and avoid it as much as possible) but I found Munich to be quiet and really easy to get around. You can also take other really great day trips from there.

We couldn't decide either so my DD and I are doing both ABD trips this summer. ABD Germany on June 21 followed by ABD Ireland on July 2nd. I'll let you know when we get back what our opinion is.

:-). That sounds like a great summer! We are actually going this year, just have to decide which one! Leaning toward Germany, but will depend on schedules.
