Adventures by Disney recently announced an exciting lineup of Long Weekend itineraries that allow your family to enjoy an unforgettable getaway together on a shorter timeframe. These trips take you to New York City, Wyoming, Nashville or the “City by the Bay,” San Francisco, which served as the inspiration for the fictional town of San Fransokyo (pictured below) from the Walt Disney Pictures film “Big Hero 6” (coming to theaters November 7).

BIG HERO 6

“Big Hero 6″ is an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax, a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada. When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends to help uncover the mystery.

On the Adventures by Disney Long Weekend vacation to San Francisco, you can explore the city that inspired “Big Hero 6″ filmmakers, while also enjoying visits to landmarks such as Muir Woods, a privately guided tour of the Walt Disney Family Museum, a special trip to Lucasfilm, wine tasting at Silverado Vineyards in Napa and so much more.
