    During the adventure, transportation is provided by a private motor coach.

  • What ages are appropriate for this adventure?Expanded

    While we welcome children ages 4 and up on our Montana and Alberta, Canada trip, we recommend that children be at least 8 years old at the time of travel. This recommendation is based on several factors, such as extended hours of daily activity programming, potential for extreme temperatures in the summer months and amount of physical activity (e.g., walking, hiking, biking, rafting). Because each child is different, call a Vacationista at (800) 543-0865 to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.

    While this adventure is not considered physically strenuous, most days will include at least 1 physically active outdoor activity. This adventure includes whitewater rafting (Class II - Class IV), with an alternative scenic float trip option (Class I - Class II). A gentle biking excursion and hike are also included. Guests should feel comfortable spending time exploring the outdoors. 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.

    Typically, breakfast is served each morning in buffet style and offers a variety of dishes. Dinners and lunches usually include fish or meat and pasta or rice entrees, with vegetables, salad, fruit and dessert. 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 if Adventures by Disney cancels the adventure prior to departure?Expanded

    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.
