While we were walking around the various towns along the Rhein and Mosel rivers in Germany one thought kept occuring to us. This is the best Disney ever! Everything looks so authentic, yet we never saw the cast member signs or anything that was obviously animatronic. The food was so much better than the usual Disney park restaurants and no matter how far we walked, I never could see Spaceship Earth.
In general, everyone kept to their accents and nearly everyone spoke German. The buildings were huge and didn't display the forced perspective that you usually see at Disney theme parks.
I don't know how they made the rivers appear so long! It seems like we drove for miles and miles and we would occasionally see the same boats but the scenery always was new. Truly a feat of imagineering excellence!
