    Anyone been to Switzerland?

    The hubby and I are considering going on the northern Italy/Switzerland Disney Adventures trip next year. Has anyone been on this trip and have any feedback?

    Thanks

    Re: Anyone been to Switzerland?

    I haven't been on the Disney trip, but I can tell you that Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.

    An Adventure by Disney to Switzerland would be a really safe, fun, and informative way to visit the area. When I went, I didn't really have time to plan anything in advance. I didn't know where to eat, what to see, etc. I just sort of stumbled around. It wasn't until I got back and people asked me if I saw certain things that I realized how many obvious things I missed.

    But is was still pretty amazing to see the real Matterhorn.

    I have not been on this trip but it looks amazing, and is one of the few ABD trips that has zip lining----that would be so cool to zip line in the Alps!

    Yeah that was a selling point for us too. I suppose there won't be any CM's dressed as Mickey Mouse scaling the top of the mountain at the real Matterhorn will there? Too bad...

    Your flight to Switzerland would need to be arranged by yourself and would not be included in the Disney portion of the ABD total. However this gives you the flexibility to search for the best airfare and times that would suit your needs.

    Well Switzerland is my other option destination to consider this summer (I hope there's sun when I got there).

    If heaven's not all it's cracked up to be, take me back to Switzerland.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I haven't been but I want to. Also, just some information, the tour in question, Alpine Magic, is being offered for the first time next year so no one has done this tour.

    Lauterbrunnen is near the top of global travel wish list. Though when visiting places like that I prefer a non-Disney experience.
