    Adventures by Disney

    Has anyone ever participated in an "Adventure by Disney"?

    If so, can you please share your experiences and opinions as we are considering trying one.
    Some questions I would particularly like to be addressed:

    1) Did you think it was suitable for a teenager and small children?

    2) Obviously it is priced higher than what it would cost to organize the trip by yourself, but did you think it was worth it?

    Thanks so much!

    Re: Adventures by Disney

    I suggest Adventures by Disney if you don't really want to spend the money on a travel agent, and if you have ever booked a package through one of the resorts and like the services it bought. My firend went to I believe France, and she thought it was great, and Disney really does take care of you.

    Thanks for the quick response Jeff!

    Can you give me some details also? What did it entail that made it worth the extra money? Was the tour guide helpful? How did it feel to be with other people on "your" vacation and did it seem too scheduled or did you have free time?

    Thanks so much for helping address my concerns!

    I'm not too sure with exacts, but she was a Cast Member and believe got a discount on her package. Here is a nice review http://jimhillmedia.com/blogs/scott_...9/21/5843.aspx that also may be helpfull. She did say it was worth the money and that is took allot of planning out of it, and she was able to just enjoy the sights.

    While working as a Jeep tour guide in Sedona Arizona, I've had the great fortune of being involved with Adventures by Disney. The CMs are great (Tiffany, Mike? You out there?), the guests are fantastic (mostly Disney fans and their families), and the itineraries are fun, educational and well planned.

    If you want a vacation with an extra bit of Disney Magic, you can't go wrong with Adventures by Disney.

    Tiffany is not on here, but I have known her since my days on the WFJC...

    I'll pass the praise along, I know she'll appreciate it.

    If you go to the website (I believe it's ABD.Disney.com) you can look through the day-to-day itinerary for any of the trips. It shows how many activities there are in a day, there are usually one or two nights where they do Disney movies for the kids while the adults can have adult time, one of the days where the kids go on a "junior adventure" while the adults do the things the kids wouldn't have fun at (my favorite of these is the Paris trip where the adults take a walking tour of the Louvre while the kids play junior art detective elsewhere in the museum.), and even which meals are provided in big groups vs. which meals are set up for you to go off on your own. The website is really top-class.

    We ordered the information from them a few months ago. You get a HUGE book describe day by day intineraries, much like the web site, with some great photos. It's something that we are interested in looking into in the next year or two.

    Hehe. I'm on the DVD that comes with that (for about 2 seconds). I'm the cowboy in the southwestern part.
