Format

On an Adventures by Disney vacation, guests are taken on expeditions that often feature activities designed for families and kids (or 'Junior Adventurers').

Two Disney-trained Adventure Guides (Cast Members) look after a group of no more than 44 guests on an Adventure, and are described as being 'part concierge, guide and storyteller'.

History

Adventures by Disney's first operating season was in summer of 2005 and featured just two destinations (Wyoming and Hawaii – both in the USA). As of 2015, Adventures by Disney travels to more than 25 destinations throughout Asia, Africa, Central America, South America, Europe, and North America.

Destinations

In 2015, Adventures by Disney expanded its destinations to span six continents.[1]

Also in 2015, Adventures by Disney introduced several shorter four- and five-day "Long Weekend" itineraries in New York City, Nashville, San Francisco and Wyoming. [2]

River cruises

On April 13, 2015, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts announced that Adventures by Disney will have river cruise vacations. AmaWaterways will host the river cruises while Adventures by Disney will guide and storytell with the group. Danube River cruises are expected to start in 2016.[3] [4] [5]
