BURBANK, Calif. – Disney is expanding its selection of guided tours for families with 12 itineraries for 2007.
Among the Adventures by Disney tours are trips to Wyoming, including whitewater rafting on the Snake River; the American Southwest; the mid-Atlantic, including a tour of Colonial Williamsburg; Costa Rica, including a zip-line tour of a rainforest; England and France; Ireland; Austria and the Czech Republic; and various destinations in Spain and Italy.
In London, the Disney tour promises a visit to Buckingham Palace and backstage access to the production of "Mary Poppins"; in Vienna, there is a private marionette show, and in Spain, a flamenco performance.
The trips also offer some separate activities for adults and children. In Tuscany, kids go on a gelato tour while adults go wine-tasting. At the Louvre Museum in Paris, while grown-ups learn about the history of the paintings, kids go on a scavenger hunt. There are opportunities for adults to dine alone while kids hang out together for dinner and a movie. And families can also break away from the group and go off on their own.
The weeklong trips are offered beginning March, April and May and are scheduled throughout the summer, with a few in the fall. Rates for the trips vary. For two adults with two children, 14 or younger, the cost for the family of four to share one room ranges from $8,000 to $12,000. Prices include accommodations, tours, activities, local transportation, and some meals, but do not include airfare.
