Thanks for Playing with Adventures by Disney

We want to thank everyone who participated on our Adventures by Disney, “Where do you think we’re going next?” destination teaser game on Facebook. It’s clear that many of you are quite savvy and easily figured out the answer to our clues. Bravo! For those who might be wondering, our clues were created to share some of the special sights and activities you’ll enjoy on our new “Greek Odyssey” adventure.

Here’s a quick rundown …

Clue #1: Kayak to an ancient fortress which once withstood an attack from the Pirate Barbarossa …
On the historic island of Spinalonga sits a 16th century Venetian-built fortress that proved impenetrable, even to the relentless pirate, Barbarossa. You will have a blast on the kayak excursion to visit this remarkable place in Crete.

Clue #2: Stomp into the fun and take a sip of this sweet dessert …
The island of Santorini rose from volcanic eruptions to yield a knack for fine winemaking. From this, a special dessert wine was born known as Vinsanto. On a visit to the Volcan Winery, Junior Adventurers will stomp their own grapes while adults get a “taste” in the craft of winemaking.

Clue #3: Be carried away by old-world charm with Jack, a new found friend …
A donkey, also known as a Jack, is a traditional transportation of Greece and a fun way to visit charming villages on your trip.

Clue #4: Learn the art of “pickling” for this national cheese …
Feta, the Greek national cheese, is made through a special process called “pickling.” On this vacation, you will learn the fine art of cheese-making.

Clue #5: Race through the games of history and celebrate on sparkling white marble steps …
Engage in sporting activities on your visit to Panathinaiko Stadium, the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games and be cheered by your fellow adventurers as you take a victory walk on the white marble steps after a friendly game.

Clue #6: Dine under a cloud of silvery green leaves from these primitive trees …
Olive trees are among the oldest known cultivated trees in the world and of course, a specialty of Greece. So what better way to celebrate than to take pleasure in a memorable farewell dinner in an olive grove?

Clue #7: Stand among pillars of antiquity and live the myths in this former treasury …
As a Greek temple, the Parthenon was utilized as a treasury. Learn the rich history and myths as you explore this iconic structure on the Acropolis.
