Adventures by Disney - 2014 New Vacations Announcement

I know you have heard of Walt Disney World or Disneyland. And many of you know all about the Disney Cruise Lines, but how familiar are you with Adventures by Disney?

Adventures by Disney is the branch of the Disney family tree that takes you and your family exploring other cultures. They specially design these VIP experiences so everyone in your family has an incredible experience. They offer special itineraries for multi-generational families, teenagers and even offer some Adults Only tours for those of us who never outgrow the Disney magic.  In 2014, they have made some great changes to their travel line up: 

New Itinerary: “Austria, Germany, and Czech Republic” 
Prague, Cesky Krumlov, Berchtesgaden, Salzburg, Vienna – The journey begins in Prague and Cesky Krumlov, where parents and children alike will make their very own marionettes with local craftsmen and embark on a picturesque walking tour of the city’s most historical landmarks. In Germany, soak in the scenic Bavarian Alps and visit the Ice Cave of Eishole before slipping into a village bakery to make pretzels. Guests take in the sights and sounds of Salzburg with a tour of Hellbrunn Castle and a performance from Duo Mozart Violinists. As the trip concludes in Vienna, families partake in private Quadrille lessons, learning the timeless art of waltzing from those who know it best. Finally, Guests will enjoy a private dinner at an emperor’s pavilion in the Vienna Zoo.

Enhanced Itinerary: “Viva Italia” 

Rome, Florence, Venice, Tuscany – This enhanced itinerary is perfect for families looking to explore the splendor of one of Europe’s most iconic destinations, with newly added VIP experiences. The journey begins in Rome with a private experience at the Colosseum and a rare after-hours visit to the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel and a stop in Tuscany to learn the art of pasta in a private cooking class. Become immersed in the city with a step back in time to the wonders of the Renaissance on a special tour of the secret passages of the Palazzo Vecchio. Finally, unmask the mysteries of Venice with Carnevale, a mask-making activity and a detective game at the Doge’s Palace.

Special Teen-Focused Departures in 2014:

• Peru: Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco & Lima – This South American adventure will now include authentic experiences for teens including taking a spin at salsa dancing with the locals and horseback riding through the rugged  landscape. The tales of ancient civilizations will come alive during a bonfire and stargazing.
