Adventures by Disney ~ The Stories of Our World

Machu Picchu with Adventures by Disney
Machu Picchu with Adventures by Disney

When I tell people that I've traveled to Peru with “Adventures by Disney”, many look at me quizzically and ask, “What’s that? I’ve never heard of it!” or even “So Disney has a theme park in Peru?” What is Adventures by Disney? It is phenomenal adventures that can take you across the globe to where stories actually begin. And who better to tell you the stories of the world than Disney? A company that has been telling us stories for as long as we can remember through books, movies, Broadway plays, and now through travel around the world! And the answer is no, Disney does not have a theme park in Peru.

Most of us have travel destinations on our “bucket list”. Places that we ache to visit at some point in our lives. Many have experienced just a small taste of adventure during their past vacations and find themselves hungry for more. And I think it's fair to say that everyone wants to have new experiences and see new places, surrounded by the ones we love.

If you have ever traveled to the Disney theme parks or on Disney Cruise Line, you’re familiar with the excellent level of service they provide. So you can just imagine the service they offer when taking you to places like Germany, Ireland, Australia, and China. With the assistance of some of the best guides in the business as well as local experts, you will see and do amazing things! You'll be immersed in the culture of the destination you visit through it's people and their customs. You will explore the natural beauty of the land around you. And you'll get to try exhilarating experiences that will take your breath away! Whitewater rafting in Peru, take a safari in Africa, snorkel alongside sea turtles in the Galapagos Islands, explore ancient ruins in Cambodia, zipline through the rainforests of Costa Rica, and learn Flamenco dancing in Spain. Junior Adventurers will make pizza in Italy or go on a scavenger hunt inside the Louvre in Paris.

I can honestly tell you that the Adventures by Disney vacations I’ve taken so far have truly been the most amazing trips I have ever done. With every detail taken care of. Doing things I could never have done on my own. My needs met before I knew there was something I needed. And that’s saying something coming from a travel agent who spends her days covering all the details!

Let me help you explore the world and put you in the hands of the company that you already know and trust to bring stories to life. Make your own Adventures by Disney memories!

The Adventure Guide: A Different Breed of Guide

Most of the time when you ask a tour company what sets their business apart from all the other tour companies out there, their standard answer is always, “It’s our people.” Fair enough. But if that’s everyone’s answer then I have a hard time swallowing it. Because in my experience, it doesn’t...Read more.

Attention to detail
Laurie has had attention to every detail of our traveling, things that I never would have thought of Laurie has covered!! She has helped us before, during and after our vacations. We have had experiences we have contacted her for while traveling such as illness that she was able to make phone calls on the home front taking the worry out of details for us. After working with her over the past few years, she knows what things we like to do and puts together travel plans for us that we would not think of!
Thanks Laurie for your professional and fun planning!

Trip of a lifetime
Very thorough. Our trip was seamless! We added 2 days in Vancouver prior to our cruise. Laurie orchestrated a terrific day trip to Victoria. In addition, our hotel was exemplary! We added extra time in Anchorage prior to flying home- Laurie again organized a great hotel and rental car. She willingly helped with solidifying day trips throughout our cruise and land tour. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We will definitely will use Laurie and Travel Leaders to plan our 50th wedding anniversary trip in 2020 to Europe!

Disney Magic!
Laurie was VERY knowledgeable about our Disney World trip. Our first meeting with her we were clueless but laid out what we wanted and she did the work with finding us a great resort and setting up transportation. She explained the park options and explained the dining plans so we could pick what best fit our needs/wants. Also gave us alot of suggestions and explained fast passes and dinner reservations. Something we knew nothing about. We took it upon ourselves to book fast passes and then I had asked Laurie to look them over and she gave suggestions on that. We met with her a couple of times to ease our worries and took it step by step with the planning. We had 10 people on the trip 4 flying from a different state and that was no hassle at all. She was quick to respond to emails. Overall very pleased with the service and knowledge we recieved. I plan to head to Disney World again with my family of four, and I would definitely use Laurie again to do the arrangements.
