Our friends at Adventures by Disney have just announced their 2019 slate of Short Escapes, and Disney Vacation Club Members have some special opportunities to add these quick trips to their travel plans.

The new Short Escapes with Adventures by Disney span from coast to coast and across the pond, guiding families through a few fun days in destinations ranging from New England to, well, actual England. The newly announced itineraries in Vancouver, Boston and London add to a Short Escapes slate that already included quick trips in Southern California, San Francisco, New York and more.

As part of Membership Magic, Disney Vacation Club Members looking to enjoy 2019 Short Escapes in San Francisco, New York or Boston may call Member Services to book their trips beginning Sept. 18, two days before these itineraries become available to the general public. As an added bonus, Members who call from Sept. 18-Nov. 16, 2018 to book San Francisco, New York or Boston Short Escapes departing anytime from Jan. 1-Dec. 10, 2019 will receive a complimentary, one-night hotel stay* to enjoy the night before their adventure begins.

Speaking of Adventures by Disney for Members in 2019, a limited number of Adventures by Disney packages remain available to Members sailing on the Oct. 5-12, 2019, Disney Vacation Club Member Cruise. These optional packages add exclusive experiences in New York City before the sailing (Oct. 3-4), and in Boston during the voyage’s first port stop (Oct. 7). Call Member Services to book your Member Cruise stateroom and/or Adventures by Disney Member Cruise package.
