Australia

Do I need vaccinations to travel to this country?
If you are coming from the U.S., you do not need any special vaccinations to travel to Australia.

Are transfers included if I arrive or depart from different locations or at different times from the itinerary?
No. Transfers are only included from the specified arrival/departure airports and hotels. For Australia, transfers are included from the Cairns International Airport (CNS) in Cairns, N. Queensland to the Sea Temple Resort & Spa on your arrival day. On your departure day, transfers are available from your hotel to the Hobart International Airport (HBA).

Are tips included?
Adventures by Disney has taken care of certain tips and gratuities for all included meals and activities such as tips for porters, housekeepers, drivers, activity providers, local experts, and dining room staff for included meals.

On Your Own Dining Gratuities: When eating at a restaurant, a gratuity is usually included in the bill. If you feel you have received exceptional service, you may leave an additional gratuity. Many choose to simply "round up."

Adventure Guide Gratuities: Gratuities for your Adventures Guides are not included. If you feel that your Adventure Guides have provided excellent service, we suggest the following discretionary gratuity: Per Guest/Per Adventure guide/Per Day - $7-$9 USD.

For example, on a 12-day adventure:
•  A Guest would tip each Adventure Guide $84-$108 USD.
•  A family of 4 would tip $336-$432 for one Adventure Guide. For 2 Guides, that would be a total of: $672-$864 USD.

Adventure Guides accept local currency, U.S. dollars, travelers' checks, and pre-paid Visa and Master Card Gift Cards. Note: If the gift card states Valid Only in the United States on the front or back of the card, your issuer has issued a Domestic Use Only card. Therefore, the card will not be accepted at locations outside of the United States. Please take this into consideration if traveling abroad with local Adventure Guides.

We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, we may marginally exceed the stated group maximum size if necessary to accommodate a family. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods, some activities may be disrupted or unavailable. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the land package price. We reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, such as if there are too few Guests, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.

What ages are appropriate for this adventure?
While we welcome children ages 4 and up at the time of travel to discover the stories of the world with us, we recommend that children be at least 7 years old at the time of travel on our Australia: Sydney, Ayers Rock, Tasmania & Great Barrier Reef trip. This is based on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, time zone differences in the destination, duration of the vacation, extended hours of daily activity programming, number of internal transports between experiences, potential for extreme temperatures in the summer months, and amount of physical activity (e.g., walking, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, biking, zip-lining, kayaking) involved. Because each child is different, call a Vacationista to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.

How strenuous are the activities?
This is an active trip with most activities being easy to moderate. Some of the hiking opportunities include a 30-minute walk through the rainforest and hiking around parts of the base of Ayer's Rock and the Mala Gorge at the Olgas. These hikes are all on unpaved trails and uneven terrain with minimal uphill. Temperatures may be hot, particularly in the desert, so be prepared with cool clothes, hats and water. You will also have the opportunity to swim, snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, ride a bike through Sydney (minimal traffic), zip-line in Tasmania, sea-kayak on Coles Bay and explore diverse areas by foot. While nearly all of the trip's featured activities are gentle if examined separately, the full range of activities requires a moderate amount of stamina in order to get the most of your vacation.

Some meals on this trip are served buffet style while others offer a limited-choice menu. Given the nature of group travel, we regret that á la carte menu choices are not available. Child-friendly choices are available at all meals. Menu items are subject to change due to the availability and seasonality of foods.

Banks charge at least 3% commission for the service. Credit cards or debit cards are widely accepted in hotels, restaurants and department stores but many merchants charge 3% or more per transaction. Cash is still the medium for local shops and small markets.

Are tips included?
Adventures by Disney has taken care of certain tips and gratuities for all included meals and activities such as tips for porters, housekeepers, drivers, activity providers, local experts, and dining room staff for included meals.

"On Your Own" Dining Gratuities: Tipping is unexpected but enormously appreciated. Be sure to leave a small tip at temples and pagodas, many of which have contribution boxes, especially when a monk takes time to show you around.

Adventure Guide Gratuities: Gratuities for your Adventures Guides are not included. If you feel that your Adventure Guides have provided excellent service, we suggest each Guest provide a discretionary gratuity of $7 to $9 USD each day per Adventure Guide.

For example, on a 12-day adventure:
•  A Guest would tip each Adventure Guide $84-$108 USD.
•  A family of 4 would tip $336-$432 for one Adventure Guide. For 2 Guides, that would be a total of: $672-$864 USD.

Adventure Guides accept local currency, U.S. dollars, travelers' checks, and pre-paid Visa and Master Card Gift Cards.

Are tips included?
Adventures by Disney has taken care of certain tips and gratuities for all included meals and activities such as tips for porters, housekeepers, drivers, activity providers, local experts, and dining room staff for included meals.

"On Your Own" Dining Gratuities: Tipping is not part of Chinese culture. To offer a tip might even be considered impolite. Consult your Adventure Guides if you have any questions.

Adventure Guide Gratuities: Gratuities for your Adventures Guides are not included. If you feel that your Adventure Guides have provided excellent service, we suggest each Guest provide a discretionary gratuity of $7 to $9 USD each day per Adventure Guide.

For example, on a 12-day adventure:
•  A Guest would tip each Adventure Guide $84-$108 USD.
•  A family of 4 would tip $336-$432 for one Adventure Guide. For 2 Guides, that would be a total of: $672-$864 USD.

Adventure Guides accept local currency, U.S. dollars, travelers' checks, and pre-paid Visa and Master Card Gift Cards. Note: If the gift card states Valid Only in the United States on the front or back of the card, your issuer has issued a Domestic Use Only card. Therefore, the card will not be accepted at locations outside of the United States. Please take this into consideration if traveling abroad with local Adventure Guides.

Are transfers included if I arrive or depart from different locations or at different times from the itinerary?
No. Transfers are only included from the specified arrival/departure airports and hotels.

Otherwise, no vaccinations are required for U.S. citizens, though you should consult your doctor for recommendations.

Egypt

Do I need vaccinations to travel to this country?
If you are coming from the U.S., you are advised to consult the Center for Disease Control website. Your doctor or health-care provider will determine what you will need, depending on factors such as your health and immunization history, areas of the country you will be visiting, and planned activities.

Are tips included?
Adventures by Disney has taken care of certain tips and gratuities for all included meals and activities such as tips for porters, housekeepers, drivers, activity providers, local experts, and dining room staff for included meals.

"On Your Own" Dining Gratuities: Known as "baksheesh," tipping in Egypt is widely expected and must be done discreetly. Ask your Adventure Guides for advice regarding tipping at restaurants and other places.

Adventure Guide Gratuities: Gratuities for your Adventures Guides are not included. If you feel that your Adventure Guides have provided excellent service, we suggest the following discretionary gratuity: Per Guest/Per Adventure Guide/Per Day - $7-$9 USD.

•  For a family of 4 for a 10-day adventure: $280-$360 USD per Adventure Guide. For 2 Guides, this is a total of:$560-$720 USD.

Adventure Guides accept local currency, U.S. dollars, travelers' checks, and pre-paid Visa and Master Card Gift Cards. Note: If the gift card states Valid Only in the United States on the front or back of the card, your issuer has issued a Domestic Use Only card. Therefore, the card will not be accepted at locations outside of the United States. Please take this into consideration if traveling abroad with local Adventure Guides.

Is this itinerary appropriate for travelers with special needs?
Please note that this vacation includes activities that present certain challenges to Guests with special needs. Access to the Tamr Henna ship is by a narrow gangway. Guests must be able to individually ascend and descend steep stairs in order to participate in this trip. Neither Adventures by Disney nor its suppliers may physically lift or assist Guests onto transportation vehicles. It is strongly recommended that persons requiring assistance be accompanied by a companion who is capable of and solely responsible for providing assistance. Contact your Vacationista to discuss your needs. Many of the ancient sights in Egypt have limited to no wheelchair accessibility, and the ship that we will be traveling on is not wheelchair accessible.

How is security addressed?
Tourism is an important pillar in the Egyptian economy, therefore the Egyptian government has taken steps to provide organized groups with a safe experience and travelers will notice a police presence and additional security measures throughout the country.

Security Escorts: One of the unique features of this particular trip is the customary armed security escort that the Egyptian government provides to organized groups, and our group is no exception. Each day as the group departs the hotel, a security escort will accompany our group to the various locations on the itinerary. These escorts do not participate with the group activities. They are simply there to promote a safe environment for everyone's enjoyment.

Hotel Security: In addition, the hotels featured on this itinerary take security very seriously and have security teams that search vehicles entering the hotel grounds. You may also be interested to know that airport-style security screening equipment is used at the entrances of the hotels.

Additional Background Information: Due to the large police presence, the U. S. Embassy reminds U.S. Citizens of the Egyptian Government prohibition on photographing police and security activities which are considered sensitive national security elements.

All coaches have security officers. Normal security is a transport police officer. On trains with a lot of tourists, there will also be a general security police officer from the tourist police. Tourist policemen will be in uniform; however, security police do not necessarily wear a uniform. All carry some type of weapon.

For more information related to travel in Egypt, please visit the U.S. Department of State website.

Do I need a passport, visa or other documents?
If you are a U. S. citizen, you will need a valid passport to enter and depart Egypt. It must be valid six months beyond your intended stay and have 1 to 2 blank pages remaining. Guests must also provide evidence of return or onward travel. Allow yourself sufficient time to have your application processed if you are applying for a new passport or renewing an expired passport. Guests 17 years of age or younger may be required to show additional documentation when traveling with a single parent. Visit the U.S. Department of State website for more details.

If you are a U.S. citizen, when you arrive in Egypt, we will facilitate getting your visa.

If you are not a U. S. citizen, please check with the Egyptian Embassy or Consulate for information on documentation requirements.

What types of meals are served on this Adventures by Disney Trip?
Typically, breakfast is served buffet style. Some lunches and dinners are also served buffet style, while others offer a limited-choice menu. Dinners and lunches are balanced meals, usually including fish, meat and pasta or rice entrées; soup and vegetables; and desserts and fruit, along with a chance to try Egyptian specialties. You will have the opportunity to sample assortments of Mediterranean appetizers with traditional sauces (mezze) that together can be a meal in themselves. While the menus have been planned to give you a taste of typical Egyptian cuisine, they are always complemented with limited American fare. Given the nature of group travel, we regret that á la carte menu choices are not available. Child-friendly choices are available at all meals. Menu items are subject to change due to the availability and seasonality of foods. If you have any questions or concerns about dining at any time during your vacation, your Adventure Guides will be happy to assist you.

What is the language and currency of this destination?
Language: The primary language spoken in Egypt is Egyptian Arabic. The official language of Egypt is Standard Arabic, used as the primary written language in media. You may also hear Bedouin Arabic spoken in some areas, especially in the Sinai Peninsula. In the Upper Nile Valley, where Aswan is located, you may also hear Nubian languages: Nobiin and Kenuzi-Dongola. English, French and German are popular second languages in more educated circles.

Currency: The unit of monetary currency is the Egyptian pound or gineih (LE). In large cities such as Cairo, ATM machines are available and dispense money in Egyptian pounds. ATMs often accept major credit cards and debit cards (Make sure to bring a Personal Identification Number or PIN so you can use it). Since ATMs may be scarce in some regions, Guests should be sure to bring credit cards, accepted by more upscale establishments and tourist destinations, especially in Cairo. Many merchants add a fee of 3% to 5%, regardless of the type of card used. Many smaller establishments only accept cash, so you may want to carry some cash as well, depending on your outing that day. For cash, carry mostly $1, $5, and $10 bills, and make sure they are in good condition. Traveler's checks can be cashed at banks, but are not widely accepted at shops or restaurants. Your Adventure Guides can help you with any currency issues or language barriers you may have.

How will our group travel between destinations?
On this adventure, your group will travel by motor coach, airplane and ship.

What is the climate like?
Egypt is a country with year-round sunshine. A desert climate, temperatures can vary widely, with seasonable warmth during the day and cool nights. In March, April and May, warm winds can blow across the country, carrying sand and causing a rise in temperature. Egypt has two seasons: summer from May to October, and winter from November to April.

Days are long during their summer, with about 12 hours of sunshine: Temperatures vary widely from day to night: In Cairo and Sharm el Shiekh, daytime temperatures range from the mid 90s°F (30s°C) to nights in the high 70s°F (20s°C). Inland and further south, in Aswan, temperatures can climb over 100°F (37°C) during the day, dropping down to the high 70s°F (20s°C) at night. Temperatures can drop to the upper 50s°F (10°C), so a light jacket is advised. Generally, there's no rainfall in summer, so an umbrella is best used as a parasol!

Winters are generally mild, with 7 to 8 hours of sunshine a day. Cairo is temperate, with daytime temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s°F (18 - 24°C), and dropping to the 40s°F (4°C) at night. Aswan and Sharm el Sheik can get warmer during the day, in the 70s° (20s°C), with nights in the 50s° and 60s°F (10 - 20s°C). Evenings and nights can be cool, so bring warm clothes and a compact umbrella in case of rain.

What if Adventures by Disney cancels the adventure prior to departure?
We will make every reasonable effort to operate the vacations as advertised; however, we reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, we may marginally exceed the stated group maximum size if necessary to accommodate a family. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods, some activities may be disrupted or unavailable. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the land package price. We reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, such as if there are too few Guests, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.

Is alcohol included with meals?
Alcoholic beverages are typically not included with your scheduled meals; however, you may purchase them at your own expense.

What airport do I fly into and out of?
Cairo International Airport (CAI).

What ages are appropriate for this adventure?
Due to restrictions with this adventure, children must be at least 6 years old at the time of travel on our trip. The minimum recommended age is 8 years old. This is based on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, time zone differences in the destination, duration of the vacation, extended hours of daily activity programming, number of internal transports between experiences, potential for extreme temperatures, and amount of physical activity (e.g., snorkeling, walking on uneven surfaces, up and down stairs, and cobblestone sidewalks). Because each child is different, call a Vacationista to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.

How strenuous are the activities?
The activity level for this journey is moderate, but the hot weather, particularly in summer, can make any activity seem more strenuous. This is an active journey that includes walking on uneven surfaces, up and down irregular stairs and on cobblestone streets. Activities include: snorkeling, hiking, exploring, museum walking and cooking. Tourists are no longer allowed to climb the pyramids, but simply touring the area can be an active exercise, aided by sure-footedness. While nearly all of the trip's featured activities are gentle if enjoyed separately, the full range of activities requires a moderate amount of stamina in order to get the most out of your vacation.


South Africa

How strenuous are the activities?
This is an active trip with all activities being easy, and you may always choose to opt in or out as you wish. There are swimming pools at all three hotels, however none are heated. There may be up to two hours of casual walking during a full day of activity in Cape Town and along the Garden Route. There is a short, easy bike ride in the Winelands area on Day 4. Game viewing on Days 7-10 is enjoyed while riding in 4x4 vehicles. While nearly all of the trip's featured activities are gentle if enjoyed separately, the full range of activities requires a moderate amount of stamina in order to get the most of your vacation.

What ages are appropriate for this adventure?
We recommend that children be at least 8 years old at the time of travel on our South Africa trip. This is based on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, time zone differences in the destination, duration of the vacation, extended hours of daily activity programming, number of internal transports between experiences, potential for extreme temperatures in the summer months, and amount of physical activity involved. Last but not least, the game viewing at Kapama for the final three days of the trip involves close encounters with large wild animals such as lions, leopards, buffalo, hippos and rhinoceroses. This requires a level of maturity to understand that sitting still and staying quiet is essential for fully enjoying this unique experience. Therefore, children should be a minimum of 6 years old for the game drives. Because each child is different, please call a Vacationista to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.

What airport do I fly into and out of?
You will fly into Cape Town International Airport (CPT). International flights into Cape Town generally arrive midday if the flight is routed through a European gateway such as London or Frankfurt. Flights departing East Coast gateways such as Atlanta, Dulles or New York typically arrive in the evening hours in Cape Town. Some flights departing the USA may include a changeover in Johannesburg en route to Cape Town. Regardless of your flight's arrival time you will be met at the Cape Town airport and transferred to your hotel.

On the final day of the adventure, an early afternoon flight will bring you from Hoedspruit to O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg for your return flight home. To ensure a comfortable connection in Johannesburg, your evening flight should not be scheduled any time prior to 6PM.

Is alcohol included with meals?
Alcoholic beverages are typically not included with your scheduled meals. However, you may purchase them at your own expense.

What is the climate like?
Since South Africa is situated in the southern hemisphere, its seasons are the reverse of those in North America, with midwinter in June and July and midsummer in December and January. In general the country enjoys a sunny climate all year round. Cape Town and the southernmost part of the Western Cape have a mild, changeable winter— the time most rainfall occurs, and a warm to hot summer. The winters in the interior regions of the country, including the Kapama Game Reserve, are mostly dry and cool, and often chilly at night. Early morning and evening game drives can be quite chilly and adequate warm clothing is required. Many guests find that a wool stretch cap combined with a scarf and gloves combined with cool weather layers is sufficient to remain comfortable. The game drive vehicles are equipped with wool blankets for covering legs and torsos. Summers are hot with more frequent rain.

Can you accommodate special dietary needs?
Adventures by Disney will make a reasonable effort to accommodate some special dietary needs at no additional charge. Unfortunately, we may not be able to accommodate all special dietary needs requested. Please contact a Vacationista in advance of your departure to advise us of your needs.

Costa Rica

Adventures by Disney will make a reasonable effort to accommodate some special dietary needs at no additional charge. Unfortunately, we may not be able to accommodate all special dietary needs requested. Please contact a Vacationista in advance of your departure to advise us of your needs.

What is the climate like?
The Ecuadorian highlands, including Quito, have a much cooler climate than the rest of the country. Although temperatures vary with altitude, the average summer temperature in Quito is about 61°F (16°C) and tends to be on the chilly side at night. The central valley is generally spring-like all year, with temperatures reaching no higher than 66°F (19°C).

In the coastal regions and Galápagos islands, the climate is pleasant any time of the year and can be defined as having two seasons: From June to November: a dry and cool season (temperature oscillates around 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the day) where the mist—a type of rain—is not a rare phenomenon. It is the best season of the year to see the marine birds nesting. From December to May: the hot and humid season (with average temperatures of 82 degrees Fahrenheit) where the tropical heat is modified by winds from the Pacific. This season is especially favorable for watching marine tortoises.

The sea temperature averages 65 to 75°F (18 - 24°C), making swimming ideal in the afternoon. Wetsuits are available aboard the ship when needed.

What if Adventures by Disney cancels the adventure prior to departure?
We will make every reasonable effort to operate the vacations as advertised; however, we reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, we may marginally exceed the stated group maximum size if necessary to accommodate a family. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods, some activities may be disrupted or unavailable. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the land package price. We reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, such as if there are too few Guests, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.

Is alcohol included with meals?
Alcoholic beverages are typically not included with your scheduled meals; however, you may purchase them at your own expense.

What ages are appropriate for this adventure?
Due to restrictions with the Galapagos Islands portion of this adventure, children must be at least 6 years old at the time of travel on our Ecuador and Galapagos Islands trip. The minimum recommended age is 8 years old. This is based on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, time zone differences in the destination, duration of the vacation, high altitude at the destination, extended hours of daily activity programming, number of internal transports between experiences, potential for extreme temperatures, and amount of physical activity (e.g., snorkeling, walking on uneven surfaces, up and down stairs, and cobblestone sidewalks). Because each child is different, call a Vacationista to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.

How strenuous are the activities?
This is an active journey that includes walking on uneven surfaces, up and down irregular stairs and on cobblestone streets. Activities include snorkeling and hiking. Bear in mind that half of the trip is at altitudes between 8,000 - 12,000 feet (2,438 - 3,658 meters) above sea level. While nearly all of the trip's featured activities are gentle if enjoyed separately, the full range of activities requires a moderate amount of stamina in order to get the most out of your vacation.

Currency
The monetary currency in Peru is the Nuevo Sol, though many businesses accept American dollars. In cities, ATM machines are available to obtain cash in the local currency, and credit or debit cards are usually accepted. ATMs are scarce in the Sacred Valley, so guests should be sure to obtain some local currency upon arrival in Lima -- the airport has convenient exchange booths in the baggage claim area. On Day 2, you will not have an opportunity to visit an ATM in Lima as you will fly directly to Cusco in the morning. No ATMs are available in the Sacred Valley and ATMs/ banks are not available until Day 6 in Cusco.

How will our group travel between destinations?

•  Lima (sea level)
     •     June - October average temperatures: Highs in the mid to high 60s, lows in the high 50s to low 60s.

Should I be concerned about altitude?
Most of this adventure takes place at altitudes ranging from 8,000 feet above sea level to 11,200 feet above sea level. Cusco is located at about 11,200 feet above sea level. Because the adventure starts in the lower Sacred Valley (9,200 ft) and Machu Picchu (8,000 ft), you have a chance to get slightly acclimated before you reach the higher elevation of Cusco.

Altitude does affect some people. Individuals may initially experience some shortness of breath and heart pounding. Other symptoms include: headaches, loss of appetite, nausea and feeling weak and dizzy. Generally, the effects of altitude sickness are mitigated by drinking lots of water, resting periodically, avoiding alcohol and eating lightly. We strongly encourage you to consult with your physician to determine if this adventure is appropriate for you and whether prescription medications to prevent altitude sickness might benefit you.

Is alcohol included with meals?
Alcoholic beverages are typically not included with your scheduled meals. However, you may purchase them at your own expense.

What airport do I fly into and out of?
We will pick you up at the Lima International Airport (LIM) on your arrival day. You may arrive at any time on the arrival day and we will meet you at the airport accordingly. At the end of your adventure, we will transfer you back to the Lima International Airport (LIM). In order to enjoy the farewell lunch and festivities, your flight should not leave earlier than 7:00 p.m. on Day 8 or you may choose to depart the hotel anytime up until hotel check-out time on Day 9.

What ages are appropriate for this adventure?
While we welcome children ages 4 and up at the time of travel to discover the stories of the world with us, we recommend that children be at least 8 years old at the time of travel on our Peru trip. This is based on several factors, such as flight time and jet lag, time zone differences in the destination, duration of the vacation, high altitude at the destination, extended hours of daily activity programming, number of internal transports between experiences, potential for extreme temperatures in the summer months, and amount of physical activity (e.g., walking on uneven surfaces, up and down stairs, and cobblestone sidewalks) involved. Because each child is different, call a Vacationista to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.

How strenuous are the activities?
This is a very active journey that includes walking through Inca ruins, on uneven surfaces, up and down irregular stairs and on cobblestone streets. Rafting on the Urubamba River (Class 2) is considered gentle. Bear in mind that most of the trip is at altitudes between 8,000 – 11,000 feet above sea level. The itinerary has been created purposely with the highest altitude (Cusco) towards the end of the adventure. While nearly all of the trip's featured activities are gentle if examined separately, the full range of activities requires a moderate to high amount of stamina in order to get the most of your vacation.

On Your Own Dining Gratuities: When eating at a restaurant, a gratuity or "service charge" is usually included in the bill, but if you are unsure, don't hesitate to ask your server. If you feel you have received exceptional service, you may leave an additional gratuity. Many choose to simply "round up."

Adventure Guide Gratuities: Gratuities for your Adventures Guides are not included. If you feel that your Adventure Guides have provided excellent service, we suggest the following discretionary gratuity: Per Guest/Per Adventure Guide/Per Day - $7-$9 USD.

For example, on a 9-day adventure:

•  A family of 4 would tip $252-$324 for one Adventure Guide. For 2 Guides, that would be a total of: $508-$648 USD.

Adventure Guides accept local currency, U.S. dollars, travelers' checks, and pre-paid Visa and Master Card Gift Cards. Note: If the gift card states Valid Only in the United States on the front or back of the card, your issuer has issued a Domestic Use Only card. Therefore, the card will not be accepted at locations outside of the United States. Please take this into consideration if traveling abroad with local Adventure Guides.

What if Adventures by Disney cancels the adventure prior to departure?
We will make every reasonable effort to operate the vacations as advertised; however, we reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, we may marginally exceed the stated group maximum size if necessary to accommodate a family. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods, some activities may be disrupted or unavailable. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the land package price. We reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, such as if there are too few Guests, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.


England and France

How strenuous are the activities?

Because each child is different, call a Vacationista to discuss whether this is the right trip for your little ones.

Dinners and lunches may include: fish, meat, and pasta or rice entrées; vegetables and salad; and desserts and fruit. Some included meals on this trip are served buffet style while others offer a limited-choice menu. Given the nature of group travel, we regret that á la carte menu choices may not always be available. Children-friendly choices are provided at all meals. Menu items are subject to change due to the availability and seasonality of foods. In order to allow you and your family time to enjoy meals by yourselves, there are a few meals that are not included in the itinerary.

If you have any questions or concerns about dining at any time during your vacation, your Adventure Guides will be happy to assist you.

What is the language and currency of this destination?
The primary language spoken in Italy is Italian and the official unit of monetary currency is the Euro. ATM machines in Italy are known as "Bancomats" and are readily available in the large cities and even in small towns. Most reputable establishments will accept major credit cards, and those that do will post the logos in their front windows. In major Italian cities and tourist areas credit cards are accepted, and are preferable to carrying large amounts of cash since they can be replaced if lost or stolen. Overall, your Adventure Guide can assist you with any currency issues or language barriers you may have.

How will our group travel between destinations?
On this adventure, your group will travel by luxury motor coach and public ferry between the mainland and the island of Capri. You will also travel by private boat and ITALO high-speed train (first class).

What ages are appropriate for this adventure?
While we welcome children ages 4 and up at the time of travel on our Alaska trip, we recommend that children be at least 6 years old at the time of travel.

If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.

Note: If the gift card states Valid Only in the United States on the front or back of the card, your issuer has issued a Domestic Use Only card. Therefore, the card will not be accepted at locations outside of the United States. Please take this into consideration if traveling abroad with local Adventure Guides.

What if Adventures by Disney cancels the adventure prior to departure?
We will make every reasonable effort to operate the vacations as advertised; however, we reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, we may marginally exceed the stated group maximum size if necessary to accommodate a family. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods, some activities may be disrupted or unavailable. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the land package price. We reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, such as if there are too few Guests, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your trip prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your land package price and Plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement.

Can Adventures by Disney help reserve an extra night before or after the adventure dates?
If you wish, we can reserve an extra night either before or after most adventures at the first and last hotel included in your adventure, subject to availability. If available, this allows you to stay in the same room as on your adventure. For early arrivals or extended stays purchased through Adventures by Disney Travel Services, a transfer from/to the specified airports for the adventure will be provided; however, transfers are provided only for extended stays purchased through us. Please refer to the destination-specific FAQs and Trip Tips for each itinerary or contact a Vacationista for more information and exact availability on your adventure's departure date. Our special rates for these additional nights are subject to availability and are only available if booked through Adventures by Disney Travel Services in conjunction with a land package and cannot be combined with any other offer.

What if I need to cancel my reservation?
Cancellations can be made by telephone or in writing. The time of cancellation will be the date upon which Adventures by Disney Travel Services receives notice from you. If you fail to execute and return the Adventure Travel Agreement to us no later than 14 calendar days after booking, it will be deemed a cancellation by you. We strongly advise that you not make any non-cancelable commitments within 14 calendar days after booking. If you make changes to the vacation commencement date or chosen vacation, it will be deemed a cancellation by you. If you cancel, amounts paid, minus cancellation fees and nonrefundable amounts, will be promptly refunded. Regardless of when you book, your deposit of US$300 is refundable for 14 calendar days after original booking. You must notify us if you decide to cancel within this 14 calendar day period. If you cancel after this period, the following cancellation fees, calculated in calendar days prior to vacation start date, and irrespective of resale by us:

90 days or more: US$300 per person; 60-89 days: 25% of the land package price; 30-59 days: 50% of the land package price; 0-29 days: 100% of the land package price. No refunds will be made in the event of interruption or cancellation by you after the vacation start date.

The cancellation terms above apply only to the land package price and exclude, among other things, cancellation charges from air carriers. It is strongly recommended that you purchase the Adventures by Disney Vacation Protection Plan as a precaution. Please ask a Vacationista for details.

We will make every reasonable effort to operate the vacations as advertised; however, we reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. We further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides to one, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached.

Is trip cancellation insurance available?
Generally speaking, the Vacation Protection Plan ("Plan") provides insurance coverage for trip cancellation and interruption, baggage protection and delay, travel accidents and delay, and emergency medical and dental services and associated transportation. You may elect to purchase the Plan at the time of booking (provided that your vacation has been paid for in full) or at any time prior to the commencement of your vacation. If you purchase and pay for the Plan in full within 14 calendar days of making your reservation, certain pre-existing medical conditions may also be covered; however, if you purchase and pay in full for the Plan more than 14 calendar days after making your reservation, pre-existing medical conditions will not be covered. Conditions and restrictions apply. Please contact a Vacationista for more information. The Plan is non-transferable. Premiums are non-refundable.

Can a Vacationista book my flight?
Air transportation can be purchased from Adventures by Disney to and from your home airport in accordance with the scheduled vacation dates and to coordinate with your adventure itinerary. As an added benefit, some flights offered through us do not need to be paid for immediately, unlike most published fares. Please note that our Vacationistas can only take domestic US flight reservations. Contact a Vacationistas for details. Canadian consumers should book through their local travel agent.

I prefer to book my flights on my own. Are there any guidelines I need to be aware of?
Yes. Before reserving your flights, please refer to your reservation confirmation or the Adventures by Disney website for flight guidelines. Adventures by Disney is not responsible for airline change fees, extra fees incurred or for missed activities due to flights which are booked outside of the established guidelines. If you did not purchase air travel through us, you are solely responsible for notifying us of flight changes affecting your arrival or we will not be able to meet you at the specified arrival airport. Please contact a Vacationista prior to purchasing your airline tickets if you have any questions.

Is there a minimum age for travelers?
Please refer to the other destination-specific FAQs for eligibility ages for each itinerary, as well as recommended minimum ages which are based on several factors; however, some activities within a vacation may have weight/height restrictions and/or different minimum ages than our overall minimum eligibility age or recommended minimum age. Please contact a Vacationista for details. All children under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who is 18 years or older in the same room. Adventures identified as 'Adult Only' are restricted to Guests 18 years and older.

Do I need to know the language native to the destination?
While it is a nice gesture to greet local people in their native language, it is not essential as our Adventure Guides and/or local experts will normally be able to assist you. All adventures are conducted in English.

Are Adventures by Disney vacations appropriate for Guests with disabilities?
Certain activities on select itineraries will present challenges that may not be suitable for Guests with disabilities or special needs. Many adventures involve considerable walking, and depending on the destination, may include walking on uneven sidewalks and streets, narrow passages, and steep stairs and inclines. Adventures by Disney strongly recommends that Guests requiring assistance be accompanied by a companion who is capable of, and totally responsible for, providing assistance. Neither Adventures by Disney nor our Suppliers may physically lift or assist Guests onto transportation vehicles or otherwise. Please contact a Vacationista to discuss your specific needs.

Are there luggage restrictions?
Our recommendation? Pack lightly. Many guests find they pack too many clothes and personal items. Each guest is restricted to one checked bag and, one personal item plus one small bag per ticketed person, as specified by your air carrier. With frequent security changes, we recommend that you check with your air carrier as well as the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) website www.tsa.gov for current restrictions

What documentation will I receive in advance of my vacation?
•A reservation confirmation packet will be mailed shortly after you book your Adventures by Disney vacation.
•An acknowledgement upon receipt of your final payment.
•Final travel planning documents will be mailed approximately 45 days before your trip start date. These documents will include the detailed itinerary of your vacation, as well as information to help you prepare for your vacation.

What can I expect the hotel rooms on my adventure to be like?
Hotel rooms vary from country to country as well as from hotel to hotel within an adventure. Most hotel rooms outside of the United States tend to be smaller than the U.S. standard. In many locations, amenities such as irons and ironing boards, coffee makers, and alarm clocks are either not allowed due to local laws or are simply not standard. Air conditioning systems in international hotels rooms are generally not as robust as those in the U.S. While we seek to choose hotels that will feel the most familiar to you, this is not always possible. Standard rooms in most European hotels are comprised of two standard-sized double beds (or a king upon request); queen-sized beds are generally not available. In many European hotels, local codes prohibit four-person occupancy in one standard-size room. We regret that it is not possible to upgrade accommodations included in the land package. Please call a Vacationista for detailed information or see "Note on accommodations" in the Rates & Dates section for each itinerary.

Are passports, visas, or other documentation required for international travel?
Depending on your country of origin and your vacation destination, passports and/or visas may be required with at least 6 months validity after the end of your trip.

You can apply for a passport and visa through CIBT, Inc., a third party travel document company servicing the travel industry (not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company). Click here for more information or call CIBT at (800) 406-1523. Be sure to mention Adventures by Disney, account #55134, for special pricing options.

It is your sole responsibility to be sure you have the correct documentation for all travel. Allow sufficient time to have your application processed if you are applying for a new passport or renewing an expired passport. U.S. citizens refer to www.state.gov or the applicable foreign consulate for further details.

Do I need special documentation to travel with Children?
Some countries on Adventures by Disney vacations have specific entry requirements for children under 17 who are traveling internationally without both parents. Usually, a notarized letter, signed by the parent or parents not traveling with the child and stating the child's name, adult guardian's name, itinerary, dates of travel, and flight information, is required. To ensure smooth travel, Adventures by Disney requires all travelers to comply with the regulations for the country you are visiting. This information is available from each country's consulate. Adventures by Disney is not responsible for the disruption of travel caused by improper documentation for any travelers, including children traveling without both parents. For specific documentation requirements, U.S. residents, consult www.state.gov or the applicable foreign consulate. Non-U.S. citizens, please check with your consulate. Please also see the destination-specific FAQs or contact a Vacationista for more information.

Do I need vaccinations to travel internationally?
In general, U.S. citizens traveling from the United States do not require vaccinations to travel to any of Adventures by Disney destinations. For the Adventures by Disney vacation to China and Germany, for U.S. citizens arriving from an area that might be infected with Yellow Fever, an International Certificate of Vaccination for Yellow Fever is required within 5 days -- otherwise no vaccinations are required for U.S. citizens. If you are not a U.S. citizen, please check your local requirements for vaccinations for travel.

If you extend your vacation on any of our adventures, you are advised to consult www.cdc.gov or your physician for vaccinations or other medical precautions.

Can you accommodate special dietary needs?
Adventures by Disney will make a reasonable effort to accommodate some special dietary needs at no additional charge. Unfortunately, we may not be able to accommodate all special dietary needs requested. Please contact a Vacationista in advance of your departure to advise us of your needs.

Are there age, height, weight or other restrictions for certain activities?
Yes, certain activities (for example, horseback-riding and ziplining) have an age, height, weight or other restrictions. In many of these instances, an alternate activity will be provided.
