Disneyland, been there? Walt Disney World, done that? Disney Cruise line, so six weeks ago? Well then why not try Adventures by Disney and take a little of that Disney Magic you seem addicted to on the road.
Yes, the Magic Kingdom continues to expand, this time in the form of
guided vacation tour packages for families called Adventures by Disney.
Costa Rica is one in about a dozen international locales the tours
introduce to five to 10 families at a time; a total of 224 tours will
run this year. The all-inclusive packages have gold-slipper prices that
start at $1,769 per person. But they promise memory-making experiences
— think dining in the Eiffel Tower or watching a private gladiator
match in the Roman Coliseum — with two guides who are trained to be
not just informed experts on their regions, but entertainers as well.
trips’ orchestrated activities are sprinkled with unexpected
Disney-esque perks like gold achievement pins that delight the
generation raised on reward stickers. Even though the family tours are
still new, practically every aspect of the six-night package had been
carefully researched and planned. We hardly ever thought about our
luggage, what to do next — or if our kids were safe.
