Welcome back, adventurers!

Here at Disney, we are celebrating World Princess Week! Did you know that Disney Princesses and their stories are inspired by different countries around the world? And at Adventures by Disney, we take you and your families to some of those incredible destinations. From France to Norway and all the way to China, let’s celebrate World Princess Week by exploring the beautiful places that our favorite Princesses – and Queens! – call home.

Guests on the Adventures by Disney Private Adventure to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia
1. Raya (Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia)

Our adventure begins in Southeast Asia, which inspired the land of Kumandra, home to newly announced Disney Princess Raya, from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Raya and the Last Dragon.” On an Adventures by Disney Private Adventure to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, guests experience the diverse stories and history that Southeast Asia has to offer, including a walking tour through Ancient Hoi An, a Tuk-Tuk excursion through Angkor Archaeological Park, and Tai Chi class.

Scotland
2. Merida (Scotland)

Next up is Scotland, where the brave and bold Merida lives! A trip to Scotland with Adventures by Disney is truly as magical as the kingdom of DunBroch, with visits to Edinburgh Castle, Loch Ness and Bogbain Farm. You can even channel your “inner Merida” and try out your archery skills on this adventure.

Guests on a Norway Land Adventure with Adventures by Disney
3. Elsa and Anna (Norway)

Now we journey to Norway, where Queens Elsa and Anna, from Disney Animation’s “Frozen” reign! Our Norway Land Adventure takes you on boat and biking journeys through the beautiful Norwegian fjords and glaciers, just like the scenery surrounding the sisters’ castle in Arendelle.

And if you’re looking for frozen fractals and icy surroundings to have your “Let it Go” moment, take a look at our expedition cruise itineraries to the Polar Regions: Antarctica & Patagonia and the Arctic!

France
4. Belle (France)

Whether it be a river cruise, private adventure or land adventure, there are many ways to experience France with Adventures by Disney! Discover the beauty of France, the home of Belle from Disney Animation’s “Beauty and the Beast,” during a private tour of The Louvre, walking and biking through the Garden of Versailles and dinner at the Eiffel Tower. And let’s not forget the little towns and quiet villages you’ll discover, including the town of Riquewihr which actually inspired the town in “Beauty and the Beast!” This is a stop on the Rhine River Cruise itinerary.

Mother and Daughter in Germany
5. Rapunzel (Germany)

Experience authentic German culture with an Adventures by Disney trip to a country where Rapunzel’s story originated! Let down your hair during this Germany Land Adventure and enjoy a Neuschwanstein Castle tour, medieval costume dress-up and a chocolate-making experience.

6. Aurora (France)

In addition to river cruises, private and land adventures, Adventures by Disney even takes you to France by way of Disneyland Paris! On a Disneyland Paris Vacation, guests will see the magnificent Sleeping Beauty Castle, home of Aurora, from Disney Animation’s “Sleeping Beauty” … and a dragon! The Disneyland Paris vacation also includes Disney Resort accommodations and premier access to attractions in the park.

Tai Chi at the Hotel of Modern Art and Sculpture Park
7. Mulan (China)

We end our royal tour in China, the home of Princess Mulan. Our China Land Adventure offers guests the opportunity to discover the beauty, history and wildlife of China. Guests will experience Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing and a few more extraordinary cities with some exciting stops along the way.

Comments

  • While I *ADORE* Scotland and the Scotland ABD I did in 2014, I think it’s ironic that the picture you use for that trip shows Eilean Donan Castle, which was removed from the Scotland itinerary several years ago. In fact, most of the areas that inspired “Brave” were removed from the trip. But it’s still an amazing place and a wonderful trip, and Merida is my favorite Princess.
