When it comes to making New Year’s resolutions I like to set goals that are obtainable (and don’t leave me feeling guilty about that unused gym membership come March). One goal I set every year is to take my family to see someplace we’ve never visited before. And my favorite way to do this is with Adventures by Disney.
With more than 30 destinations on six continents, the options available through Adventures by Disney are vast. But here are a few of my suggestions on where you should resolve to travel this year.
Take in the Beauty of America During the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service
The grandeur and majesty of Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Arches, Glacier, Denali and other U.S. National Parks are waiting to be explored. And with Adventures by Disney, you can see all of these and more, all during the Centennial of The National Parks Service.
Visit Lucasfilm, the home of Star Wars
Feel the power of the Force with a trip to Lucasfilm in the Historic Presidio of San Francisco to see rare Star Wars memorabilia, including life-size replicas of Darth Vader and Boba Fett. To cap off this experience, you’ll enjoy a private visit to the Premier Theater and view highlights from many celebrated movies.
Plan a European Vacation
This one is pretty broad, but the dollar to Euro exchange rate is hot right now, making it the perfect time to plan a trip to Europe. With Adventures by Disney you explore the Sistine Chapel after hours on the Italy vacation, see the Christmas Markets on a Holiday Danube River Cruise, celebrate Oktoberfest on an autumn Germany vacation, or choose from vacations in Spain, Scotland, Norway, Ireland and more.
Celebrate the Disneyland Diamond Celebration, and Get a Sneak Peek at What’s to Come
On the Southern California vacation you’ll go where few have gone before. Enjoy a rare behind-the-magic private tour of Walt Disney Studios, enjoy exclusive access to Walt Disney Imagineering, see Walt Disney’s Disneyland apartment and more, plus enjoy the magic of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration through September 5.
Cross Some Must-Sees Off Your Bucket List
If you’re like me you have a list of locales you’re eager to visit “someday.” Why not make 2016 the year you cross some of those places off your must-see list? Hike Machu Picchu on the Peru vacation, go on a South African safari, or knock three items off your bucket list by traveling through the Amazon, snorkel in the Galapagos Islands and stand on the equator on the Ecuador: Amazon and Galapagos Islands vacation.
The world is waiting to be explored! Where do you most want to visit in 2016?
