Disney expands its guided tours

When I go on vacation, I don't want to be bogged down in details, paperwork, and hassles. But vacations often mean just that—dealing with airport transfers, museum tickets, baggage handling, and language barriers.

Luckily, the folks at Disney want to handle the logistics for you, and during the last few years they've been slowly broadening the range of guided tours offered under the Adventures by Disney brand. Naturally, Disney specializes in family vacations where aspects of the trip are tailored to entertain guests of all ages. While the adults are off enjoying a wine tasting, for example, the "Junior Adventurers" can indulge in a pizza party.

Disney has recently broadened its itinerary to include 23 destinations/experiences. In addition to returning favorites like Cities of Knights and Lights (London and Paris) and Discovery Down Under (Australia), they've added Taming the Last Frontier (Alaska: Fairbanks, Denali National Park, and Kenai Peninsula) and Gateway to the Galapagos (Ecuador and Galapagos Islands).

Want to stay local? There's Beantown & The Big Apple, where you travel to Boston, Newport, and New York City. In the mood for something more exotic? How does Safari to South Africa sound: you'll experience Capetown, The Garden Route, and Kapama Game Reserve.

Prices per person for the trips start at $2,129 (Spirit of America, 8 days/7 nights), and climb to $4,399 (Safari to South Africa, 12 days/11 nights). Each trip includes accommodations, transportation within your adventure, luggage service, most meals, gratuities, taxes, and the services of two Adventure guides—not to mention that indescribable Disney magic.

Details for each adventure—as well as prices and booking information—can be found at adventuresbydisney.com. [UPDATE: We also discussed the program in our April issue.]

Have you been on any of the Adventures by Disney trips? Did it live up to your expectations?
