How do you cultivate educational experiences for your children?
Last week on my Disney cruise, I was pleased to meet several parents who viewed their trip as not just a vacation but also as a learning opportunity for their children. Whether it was an authentic cultural experience on a Port Adventure, or an educational craft in a youth club, these parents sought out how to expand their children’s knowledge and understanding of the world through a family vacation.
Not surprisingly, families are doing the same thing with Adventures by Disney trips. In this video, which was first shared on the Disney Post, Director of Trip Development Heather Killingbeck explains how Adventures by Disney creates immersive itineraries that engage, excite and educate families.
Do you agree with Heather’s perspective on travel? What are some of the ways you use real-world experiences to teach your children outside the classroom?
I couldn’t agree with you more on how travel can transform lives and is an educational opportunity for adults and children alike. I am a teacher and a mother of three. I’ve always tried to design our family vacations around learning experiences for the entire family. Exposure to a variety of cultures, history, and tradition makes the perfect vacation. I am glad Disney offers the Adventures by Disney vacations. I hope to take my family on one in the future!
