We could all use a cruise right now and where better to sail than the beautiful French Rhône River? But because times are tight and people are staying home, Disney has decided to treat us from the comfort of our own couches. Presenting: “Adventure at Home: Rhône River Cruise.”
First things first, you’ll want to get acquainted with the surroundings. Watch this virtual tour of destinations that guests find themselves exploring on this Disney Cruise, such as Lyon, Avignon, and Tournon. It will certainly whet your appetite for this delightful French vacation.
Next up on our cruise itinerary is a delightful game called ”Who is the Character?” The game is a classic cruise activity, typically hosted by an Adventure Guide, but here it is in a video format for at-home use. It’s an easy (but fun!) way to get the whole family playing together. The video shows French names of various Disney characters which participants then must guess the English names for. The person with the most correct guesses wins! But no fair if they’re already francophone!
No cruise down the Rhône would be complete without some delicious French food, so Disney chefs have shared a special recipe to make at home: Mickey Mouse French Macarons. They are much simpler to make than might be imagined, and of course, the recipe holds some helpful tips for those who may not be as comfortable with their baking skills! Click the link to try the recipe yourself.
For those who truly wish to be surrounded by the beauty of the French countryside, there remains one more perk to your Disney Cruise from home. Disney has shared a background for your laptop, phone, or conference call, of the hilltop village of Gordes. For personal use only, this gorgeous vista will instantly give users the feeling of being in a world of relaxation. It’s the closest thing we have to cruising from our living room couch!
While we all anxiously await the day we can take the Disney Rhône River Cruise for ourselves, we are excited to do the next best thing at home. Happy sailing!
