I went on this trip with some misgivings, as my only other experience with this type of tour was a winter Tauck Family Bridges tour of Italy, that was not a good experience. Well, I am SO glad I went, as my daughter and I had a marvelous time. Disney did an amazing job of organizing this trip - I still can't believe how much they managed to fit into essentially 8 days. I also can't believe how much fun it all was! The guides were tremendous. First of all, unlike Tauck (where we traveled with one tour manager), here we had two guides with us the entire time - one a licensed guide in Greece (i.e., a native, very knowledgeable about the country and able to really take us through the historical and archaeological sites) and the other an American who has been guiding in Greece for years. The interaction between the guides was very warm, as was their way of relating to the guests. This was a complete contrast with Tauck. Here people really got to know each other, the young people had a great time with each other, and, of course, Greece itself is just magnificent. I will certainly travel with Disney again!

Stride Review

Family friendly and culturally immersive travel from the imaginative minds at Disney.

What Makes Adventures by Disney Stand Out?

Adventures by Disney

A majority of tour companies cater to young adults and 50+ travelers. Very few are dedicated specifically to families, and those that are often have a minimum age of 12 - with rare exceptions. Adventures by Disney is a perfect option for parents with young children seeking exciting, educational, and culturally rich vacations, with an high level of comfort.

These tours are not heavy on the Disney characters or films either, so if you’re dreading an all-Disney all-the-time experience, rest easy. These trips are active, often with an outdoor component, and introduce young minds to the world through interactive cultural presentations, up-close wildlife experiences, and other fun surprises.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Adventures by Disney?

It goes without saying that these trips are geared toward young families. You and your young ones will enjoy a trip with Adventures by Disney if learning through travel is a high priority, and a certain amount of physical activity is ok.

Adventures by Disney trips are on the higher end when it comes to price per person. But it’s important to note that almost everything is included - freeing you up to enjoy the trip with no stress about where the next activity should be, or finding a restaurant that is suitable for your families needs.

On most trips with Adventures by Disney the minimum age requirement is 4 years old.

Top Destinations

Select Central America and South America tours are available as well as limited tour options in Australia, China, South Africa, and Japan.

Adventures by Disney Travel Style

Most Adventures by Disney tours feature varying degrees of physical activity. Some are more active than others, but you should expect to be outside, enjoying nature in some capacity during your trip. Whether this means a day of kayaking trip along the Gold Coast, a hike through a magical European forest, or cycling along rivers and lakes your trip will provide plenty of time in the fresh air.

All admissions to exhibits, tours, and activities are included in your package. Adventures by Disney is very focused on making sure your trip is hassle free. All transportation and accommodation during the tour are also taken care of.
