Disney continues to expand how you can experience the Disney magic when traveling beyond the parks. First, Adventures by Disney revealed today an all-new 10-day, 9-night Seine river cruise vacation that will combine two days exploring Paris on land, followed by eight days of cruising to picturesque French destinations such as Normandy, Conflans, Vernon and more. Culinary stories are woven throughout the adventure, including a gourmet food tasting tour, regional wine and cheese sampling and hands-on macaron making demonstration. Two Summer 2019 departures will serve up a wide array of enchanting activities for families, while two Fall 2019 epicurean sailings will be held exclusively for adults, offering enhanced food and wine themed experiences both on and off the ship.

Adventures by Disney is also continuing their popular Rhine and Danube river sailings, which allow guests to explore the heart of Europe. Epicurean sailings along the Rhine River in Fall 2018 and 2019 serve up extraordinary food and beverage experiences both on and off the ship. Culinary adventures also abound on adult-exclusive Oktoberfest themed sailings on the Danube River.

For guests looking to explore the story behind Disney stories, today Adventures by Disney launched a new four-day, three-night Southern California land tour that can be booked as a stand-alone vacation, or in conjunction with 2018 Disney Cruise Line sailings departing from the port of San Diego. This guided group vacation allows travelers to revel in a behind-the-scenes look at places where Disney magic is made, including rare private tours of The Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering, VIP experiences at Disneyland Resort, an exclusive visit to Walt Disney’s Disneyland apartment, a sneak peek at props and costumes from beloved Disney films at the Disney Archives, and more.

This new Southern California Short Escape package joins an existing lineup of enriching Adventures by Disney Short Escapes in New York City, Barcelona and Copenhagen.
