Whether you’re searching for a romantic couple’s getaway, an unforgettable girls’ trip or an all-adult family vacation with something everyone will enjoy, Adventures by Disney is creating more ways for your group to add a touch of sophistication and a dash of pixie dust to your next adventure.
As part of our amazing lineup of guided group vacations coming in 2020, we’re adding more adult-exclusive departures than ever before with adult-only dates for more than 30 incredible destinations and tours, including land-based adventures and European river cruises. What’s more, Adventures by Disney has developed brand-new experiences just for adults for many of these itineraries, further tailoring these trips for our grown-up guests.
With so many incredible options to choose from, it might be difficult to decide which itinerary is right for you. To help get you started, I’ve highlighted some of my favorite new adult-only programming below… Do any of these sound like you?
For the History Buff: Egypt
Egypt is a history lover’s paradise, and our guests are going to be completely immersed in the rich stories and alluring mysteries of this ancient land when we launch our Egypt vacation next year. In addition to visiting famous pyramids, fascinating temples and even King Tutankhamen’s tomb, the adult-only itinerary offers an extra special treat — an exclusive VIP tour of the conservation rooms at the brand-new Grand Egyptian Museum! This privately guided activity delivers up-close encounters with some of the unpreserved and uncovered ancient artifacts kept in the museum’s private rooms. How cool is that?!
For the Nature Enthusiast: Iceland
If you love the outdoors, Iceland is the perfect trip for you. This itinerary is chock full of stunning views — waterfalls, volcanoes, hot springs, you name it! — and outdoor excursions such as glacier hiking, river rafting and more. On top of all that, select adult-exclusive Iceland departures will include a chance to see one of the most beautiful natural wonders of the world during a new private nighttime excursion in search of the Northern Lights! This upgraded itinerary also features enhanced dining experiences just for adults (which should help you refuel after all that adventuring outdoors!).
For the Unique Experience Seeker: Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos
If unique cultural experiences are your thing, search no further than our Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos trip, where Adventures by Disney is going above and beyond in 2020. We’ve added a breathtaking new experience on the adult-only itinerary: An invitation to attend a special ancestral ceremony hosted by a senior village shaman, followed by food and drink prepared by the healer’s family. This once-in-a-lifetime event complements the comprehensive roster of immersive experiences on this trip, and additional new adult programming includes hands-on culinary activities like mango carving and coffee tasting.
For the Theater Lover: China
Did you know the color of a performer’s mask in traditional Chinese theater represents their character’s emotions? In 2020, the Adventures by Disney adult-exclusive China itinerary will take you behind-the-scenes at the Sichuan “face-changing” opera to observe the intricate makeup techniques used by performers when getting stage-ready. This is just one of many unique ways you’ll experience the traditions and history of China during this 12-day vacation that transports you to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and more. The 2020 adult-exclusive itinerary also features a new tuk-tuk foodie tour of Chengdu and a private archeologist guide at the Terracotta Museum in Xi’an.
For the Home Chef: Costa Rica
Home cooks of every skill level will love discovering the secret to making the perfect ceviche, a traditional South American dish, during a private cooking lesson in Costa Rica. During this new adult-only experience for 2020, guests will learn how to make delicious local recipes and enjoy a selection of artisanal beers. And that’ll be just one of countless indulgences during this vacation, which also includes a privately guided chocolate tour, a dip in the local hot springs and a VIP catamaran excursion. Sign me up!
