Central & South America – Costa Rica

Mariela F.

It was everything and more! We had an amazing time and made some of the best memories as a family. Water rafting, zip lining, river cruising, thermal baths. We enjoyed some of the most beautiful views of the Arenal Volcano.
During our catamaran adventure, we even had a group of 8 dolphins jumping out of the water around us. We were immerse in the Costa Rica culture from the moment we landed. The hotels were great and the transportation flawless. Our guides made a huge difference, taking care of every single detail and showing us the best of Costa Rica. Good times. We can't wait to do it all over again in another destination with the ABD team.

North America – Disneyland® Resort and Southern California

David C.

Adventures by Disney provided nothing but magic for our trip. Our Vacationista Natasha helped us book and answer any questions prior to our trip. Our travel guides
Alyssa, Dean and Clare became our fairy god parents for that week. They gave us nothing but pixie dust throughout our adventure. We went into some really restricted areas where no other guest can go to and really felt like VIP's. The biggest magic they gave me was the opportunity for an amazing proposal inside the Millennium Falcon. I was in constant communication with our guides to make sure everything they helped me plan, happened without her knowing. We "randomly" met up with our guides while we were taking pictures at the Falcon and invited them to go on Smuggler's Run with us. While in the holding area of the ship, Alyssa offered to take our pictures while Dean was recording everything. I shouted "Wait! I have a thermal detonator." and then I asked her to be my forever copilot. She said "Of course!" The cast members there were kind enough to give us extra time to take photos inside the cockpit and helped make the whole experience one to remember.

Europe – Italy & Amalfi Coast

Megan G.

Planning a trip for my family of 5 has never been easy, so I decided on a whim to book an ABD trip after seeing someone post their trip on social media. One of the best decisions I have made!
Never could I have organized and facilitated the amount of amazing places we visited nor properly vet the stunning accommodations for the trip. Our impeccable local guides, Paolo (Sorrento) and Samuele (Florence), won us over immediately, but our trip managers, Robyn and Mara; flawless. We seamlessly went from Capri to Amalfi to Positano, swimming amongst yachts in the blue Mediterranean. Our every need and want was catered to with smiles and professionalism. Our family bonded with Robyn and Mara, they truly cared about the well being of every person on the tour. Pompeii to Florence/Tuscany on the high speed train speeding past dozens of full bloom sunflower fields, was like nothing my children had ever experienced. We didn't wait in a single line or make a single reservation, even for dinner, our guides took care of that too! Because of ABD stellar ability to hire top notch employees and put together an unmatched itinerary, we decided that we will be booking another ABD for 2023!

Africa & Asia Pacific – Japan

Terrie P.

The rickshaw ride really sets the tone and was a fantastic way to kick off our trip. Taiko drumming was what I was most looking forward to
doing and it did not disappoint. The dinner with the maiko was wonderful. She was delightful and so kind to answer our questions and share what it is like to train to be a geisha.

I did not expect to feel so immersed in the culture as I did on this trip. This isn’t my first Adventures by Disney rodeo and I know to expect some cultural experiences…but this was different. I don’t know how to explain it or why I felt this was somehow unique. I felt more immersed in the country and with the people and less like an outsider looking in. It was just so wonderful to experience Japan this way. I think that, above all, was the biggest surprise for me.

Last but certainly not least, the icing on a truly fabulous cake…James and Tomomi, our Adventure Guides, are both treasures! They made the entire trip truly come alive for everyone!

Before joining Adventures By Disney for their Southeast Asia trip, I knew little about Vietnam, its history, or its people. On the first full day of the trip, we took
a boat ride on the Mekong River that gave us the you're not in Wisconsin anymore experience that we were hoping for. We visited a floating village, our daughter made some local rice-based candy, my wife and I bought a great piece of art from a local artist, and we all saw what I think was real life in Vietnam. In the attached photo, some locals let us watch them fish and were happy to show us their catch afterwards. That day was unique, enjoyable, comfortable, educational, and offered something different for every age group. I think it exemplified why we love Adventures By Disney.
