Imagine you're in a new country far from home. Managing the details of your vacation includes so many details - especially a trip to a foreign country. Hotels, transportation, money, activities, dining.....and then throw in your children, parents, or even grandparents? Different languages, cultural differences, and currency changes have your head spinning. Things can get stressful REALLY fast.
But that's why I love Adventures by Disney and I know you will, too. Everything is perfectly planned for you and expert guides are with you each step of the way; it's a completely stress-free and exciting way to experience new places.
Adventure by Disney (ABD) tours come packed with the 'Disney Difference' that elevates your vacation above and beyond the average global travel experience. Read on to discover what makes Adventures by Disney such a special experience for your entire family.
1. Adventures by Disney offers adventures like no other.
With Adventure in the name, you know exactly what you're in for, and Disney does not disappoint. ABD offers over 30 itineraries that are land-based, at sea, river cruises, and shorter weekend-long getaways. From a historical tour of New England, all the way to the pyramids of Egypt - there is truly something that will fulfill your wanderlust.
Iconic bucket-list experiences such as trips to classic European cities, historical sites, an African safari, expeditions to the Great Wall of China, exploring highlights in America's national parks, and much more are included in the itineraries, as well as options for kids-sized and adults-only tours. Your kids will have their own private Disney tour guide teaching them how to make a traditional Venetian mask while the adults sneak away with their own guide for a private wine and cheese tasting.
2. Adventures by Disney Guides
Become part of the story with two Disney Adventure Guides for each group. The guides are there to ensure every detail of the trip is attended to, and work as a link between you and the cultural surroundings.
A highly sought after position, the Adventure Guides are cast members who are the best of the best - hand-picked out of thousands of applicants. Their role is part concierge, part photographer, part camp counselor - they ensure your family feels comfortable in new environments and are there every step of the way.
In addition to the two Adventure Guides, Disney also teams with local experts in each city you visit. These local experts provide your group the inside details of the customs, traditions, and daily life of the people, places, and sites you'll be visiting to experience a truly authentic and memorable experience.
3. Insider Access, VIP Perks, & Cultural Immersion
You get a "backstage pass" to the world! Because Disney is, well, DISNEY, they can provide access to extraordinary activities, locations, and behind-the-scenes sites that very few will ever have the pleasure to experience.
A private VIP Vatican Museum tour
An exclusive dinner at the Vienna Zoo
Go backstage of "Good Morning America" on the Times Square tour
Private dinner at Edinburgh Castle
+ More exclusive surprises!
4. Outstanding Accommodations and Dining
You won't need to spend hours researching hotels (and then fretting that you can't truly trust people on the internet). Rest assured that Disney will only choose incredible properties that you will feel comfortable, safe, and inspired in after a day adventuring.
In addition, ABD goes above and beyond setting up extra-special dining experiences such as:
exploring a Vietnamese market with a local chef, then go back to his kitchen to learn how to prepare a tasty traditional dish
pasta tasting in Italy
enjoy a lunch buffet while experiencing the sites and sounds while cruising Nile River in Egypt
there's even a new adventure dedicated to dining: the Rhine Food & Wine River Cruise, which lets you eat and drink your way through classic Europe with demonstrations, workshops, and tastings that focus on the culinary traditions of each of the four countries that guests will visit.
5. Adventures - Done For You!
The best part? There's no need to spend countless hours that you already don't have researching, putting everything together, piecing out every detail into your itinerary. Between myself, working on your behalf before your trip as your travel advisor, and Disney handling everything during your travels - you're covered! You literally just pack, go, and enjoy!
Adventures by Disney is a mostly all-inclusive experience. All hotel accommodations, transportation during travel, tickets, and tours are included in your price. Most food is also included, although not all. ABD leaves ample time for you to also explore on your own if you wish to do so - and grab a bit to eat!
