When guests sail on an Adventures by Disney Danube River Cruise vacation, they’ll visit eight cities and towns in four European countries. Today I’ll share with you one of the ports I’m most excited about – Budapest, Hungary.


Here you’ll take in the striking scenery and architecture on a panoramic city tour that will have you “oohing” and “ahhing” from the moment you step off the ship.

Relax on a scenic carriage ride, see the famous “csikosok” (Hungarian cowboys), and delight in an entertaining horse show at Lazar Equestrian Park while surrounded by picturesque views. If you’re in the mood for some friendly competition, challenge your friends and family in a goulash-making contest, complete with live music by traditional Hungarian folklore musicians.


Taste and discover the flavor and cultural of Budapest as you explore Great Market Hall. From smelling (and yes, also sampling) the fresh baked pastries and sweets to browsing some of the local hand-made crafts, this market will have you stocking up on souvenirs and devouring tasty treats.


As night falls, be dazzled by the radiant buildings of Budapest as they light up the night on your Illuminations Cruise. You’ll toast to an unforgettable evening as you cruise along the Danube River, enjoying the incredible architecture that surrounds you.

Budapest is just one stop on a 7-night/8-day European River Cruise vacation with Adventures by Disney. Stay tuned as I continue to share other exciting adventures from this vacation!


  • This one is going straight to the top of my bucket list! My grandma took me to Budapest, Hungary when I was 14 and she took me to the house where she grew up. It was amazing that she knew people who lived there still! What an unbelievable experience it would be to see “her” city with an Adventures by Disney River Cruise! Very exciting!
