It’s a great way to see the world with the Disney touch!
Adventures by Disney describes it as providing guests with “culturally immersive, once-in-a-lifetime experiences,”. Each trip comes along with an Adventure Guide who will provide guests with experiences that are authentic and give them a chance to learn all about the culture of the destination.
Guests are also given insider access to tours and other opportunities that are not available to the public. Think of it as your “FastPass+” to adventure! By the way, I certainly hope those come back real soon!
