When I hear adults object to a Disney vacation because they think the parks are for children only, I get sad. Not only do I think the world would be a better place if we spent more time embracing our inner child… but Disney is so much more than a playground for the young and young at heart.
For those who want their vacations to be mind-growing in addition to mind-blowing, there are Adventures by Disney — where you’ll travel the world with the Disney perspective and see what most ordinary tourists will never experience.
For example, on Ireland Family Adventure, you’ll go sheep herding in Shannon, take jig lessons in Killarney, and tour cathedrals in Dublin. Or, on Australia Family Adventure you’ll plunge into the largest coral reef system on earth, ride camels through the desert to watch the sun set on Ayers Rock, and feel the rush of adrenaline as you zoom around famed Sydney Harbour on a high-speed boat. These are adventures you’ve got to hike, bike and swim to believe.
Take it from me, on Wyoming Family Adventure I experienced a Wyoming I never even knew existed. I mean, who knew that Yellowstone National Park is the site of a “super volcano?”
With destinations all around the globe, you’ll experience the world’s authentic wonders come to life. And that’s way more than kid’s stuff! If you’d like to travel with Alan and me to some of the Adventures by Disney travels we’ve taken, check our multi-media trip reports.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m an adult who will still visit the Disney parks as often as I can to immerse myself in the creative wonder and magic of Disney – but isn’t it fun to think about the magic of Disney in Peru’s Macchu Picchu or Ecuador’s Galapagos islands? Recently, Disney announced they’d be building Avatar-land in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Now that’s an “Adventures by Disney” I am EAGER to experience!
