    This is an active trip with lots of walking which can be very physical, especially in the summer heat.

  • What is the basis for your suggested minimum age for this trip?Expanded

    While we welcome children ages 4 and up, for our Spain trip, we recommend that children be at least 6 years old at the time of travel. This is based on several factors, such as flight time, jet lag, time zone differences between destinations, vacation duration, extended hours of daily activity programming and the amount of physical activity (e.g., walking) involved. Because each child is different, call a Vacationista at (800) 543-0865 at (800) 543-0865^ to discuss whether this is the right trip for your little ones.

  • What types of meals are served on this Adventures by Disney Trip?Expanded

    Typically, breakfast is buffet-style. Dinners and lunches usually include fish, meat and pasta or rice entrées; vegetables and salad; and desserts and fruit. Some meals on the trip are served buffet-style while others offer a limited-choice menu. Child-friendly choices are available at all meals. Given the nature of group travel, we regret that à la carte menu choices may not always be available. Menu items are subject to change due to the availability and seasonality of foods.

    In order to offer you and your family a bit of time to enjoy meals amongst yourselves, your itinerary includes "on your own" time. These open blocks have been planned in towns or cities where plenty of dining options are available. If you have any questions or concerns about dining at any time during your vacation, your Adventure Guides will be happy to assist you.

  • Is alcohol included with meals?Expanded

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

  • What if Adventures by Disney cancels the adventure prior to departure?Expanded

    We will make every reasonable effort to operate 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's 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 rebook you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline rebooking 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.
