People from all over the world travel to Disney Parks to experience the best in family entertainment and customer service. But did you know that you can travel the world with Disney? Adventures by Disney (ABD) is the best way to travel to points near and far with your family. Whether you want to camp in Montana, experience a safari in South Africa, see castles in Europe, or snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, Adventures by Disney can take you there on a hassle-free, almost all-inclusive luxury vacation. Here are my top 5 reasons to travel with Adventures by Disney!
Premium travel worldwide:
No matter which destination you choose, Adventures by Disney has selected the highest quality accomodations for you and your family. The Disney name ensures that the hotels will provide great rooms, connecting rooms when available for families, and top notch service.
Each ABD is led by TWO Adventure Guides. One guide is a Disney Cast Member (Adventure Guides are one of the most competitive positions with Disney!). The other guide is hand-picked guide from the local area. The two guides travel with the group to provide unforgettable service. They take care of everything small and large including luggage transfers, coins for bathrooms when needed, and the unexpected. For example, the guides helped us find cold medicine when we could not read the labels in a foreign country.
In addition to your two adventure guides, ABD brings in local experts to each stop of your tour and provides opportunities to spend time with locals in unique ways. For example, in Germany we spent time in a small pretzel shop visiting with the owner and hand rolling and baking pretzels. In Prague, we spent time making marionettes with local artisans which provided an appreciation for the complexity and beauty of these pieces during our private viewing of a marionette showing in Vienna.
The Adventures by Disney “paddle of power” opens doors that no other tour company can open. On our Central Europe trip, others could only walk by and take exterior photos of the iconic gazebo from the Sound of Music movie on display at Hellbrunn Castle while our group spent time inside the gazebo taking fun photos recreating scenes from the movie. In Vienna, our group was given the rare opportunity at the Spanish Riding School to visit the famous Lipizzan mares and their colts in their stables.
Unless you are taking an Adventures by Disney trip that visits Disneyland or Walt Disney World (and talk about insider access!), you won’t see Mickey Mouse or other characters. ABD creates Disney Magic in other ways that are unique to each trip. You will receive specially designed pins delivered in special ways that will be mementos of the experiences on your adventure. Pixie dust flies unexpectedly, and I won’t spoil those surprises! But the best magic is the unforgettable family bonding that comes from experiencing the world with your family without stress or worry.
