Adventure Travel From… Disney?

Ok, so I finally figured a way to get my kid sister to join me on my next adventure travel experience. I’ll just book it through the Disney Adventures site. It seems the House the Mouse Built has decided that it’s time to jump into the adventure travel game, and they’re now booking guided excursions to such places as Coast Rica, Peru, Australia, and many more, including some right here in the States.

Some of the options for their adventure vacations include visiting the ruins of Machu Picchu (by train of course, no Inca Trail here), cultural excursions to China and Shanghai, or spending the night in an actual castle in the Irish countryside. Closer to home, you can raft the Colorado River in Moab, Utah, visit the Grand Canyon, or take a trip to the Grand Tetons of Wyoming, Disney style. Which is to say, you’ll probably be paying way too much money and be obligated to wear Mickey Ears where ever you go.

The Adventures By Disney website has all the info you need, including an Ask The Adventure Guide section for all of your questions, an explanation of the Disney Difference, and of course it wouldn’t be Disney without the Disney Adventure Store.

All joking aside, I have to admit that I love visiting Disney World. The place is a complete blast and really is a lot of fun for kids of all ages. However, when I think of my next “adventure”, Disney is not the company that comes to mind. Still, I’m sure they’ll find a willing audience, and I have no doubt that their trips will have a certain magic to them. As for the rest of us, that overland bus trip from London to Sydney that I mentioned earlier is still more our speed. Oh, and if you want to get in on the group discount, you’d better get to the comments section quick! The bus is filling up! 😉

Thanks GoBlog!

  1. Ah, yes O Big Brother, you can take me if it’s Disney. I’ll gladly wear my ears. And of course, if it’s Disney…it’s “safe” for the kids to go too. The wimp in me might actually join you if the Mouse comes too.

  2. I think they should contact us and send us on a Review trip–what do you think Kraig? I would sell-out, put on the little mousey ears and scurry where ever they told me if it was free…lol

    If not, I think I will stay with my Primitive Camping..better on the pocketbook and a lot more memmories.

  3. Oh! Yeah, if Disney want’s to send any of us on a trip, I’m happy to go and write up a nice review. I’m not cheap, but I can be bought! 😉

  4. They are offering itineraries similar to my trip to Peru last year and my trip to Costa Rica next month. The standard adventure travel fare for these destinations.

    Only difference is they are charging 3x to 4x more than other adventure travel companies like GAP Adventures.

    Granted GAP isn’t a luxury outfit, but my trip to Peru was by no means barebones and was 1/3 the price of a similar trip with Disney Adventures.

  5. Yeah, pretty much what I got out of it too. It’s the same with the trips from National Geographic. They offer a trip that is almost exactly the same as my trip to Egypt a few years back, but they charge something like $5000 more, without airfare.

    Sometimes you’re paying for the name of the travel agency.

  6. Well, most of the themes from Disney cruises are for family oriented themes. If you are going to travel alone, I don't think that there are a lot of activities for you. You can try other cruise lines as they have specials such as singles or groups cruise. You can have a lot of activities there such as casinos and parties and more.
