So what are Adventures by Disney Escapes, where are the destinations, how much do they cost, and are Adventures by Disney Escapes worth it? Keep reading to find out!

What are Adventures by Disney Escapes?

Adventures by Disney’s primary travel category is Land Adventures, which are trips that range in length from 6 to 12 days. Adventures by Disney Escapes, on the other hand, are a subset of Land Adventures and typically last from 2 to 5 days. Adventures by Disney Escapes can be a stand-alone trip or paired with your land or cruise vacation as a pre or post-trip add-on.

Adventures by Disney Escapes currently offers nine destinations across three continents: North America, Europe, and South America.

Unlike the longer Land Adventures vacations, the 2- to 5-day timeframe of Adventures by Disney Escapes makes them an excellent option for families with limited vacation time or who don’t have the budget for a long trip. Additionally, they are a popular way of adding several more days to an accompanying Adventures by Disney Land Adventure, Adventure by Disney River Cruise, or a Disney Cruise Line reservation.

What is included in the price of Adventures by Disney Escapes?

The cost of Adventures by Disney Escapes typically covers your accommodations, transportation during the trip, activities, admission to paid venues on the itinerary, and most of your meals.  The flights to and from the tour are usually not included.

As mentioned above, Adventures by Disney Escapes are 2 to 5 days long, so the vacation cost is lower than the standard 6 to 12-day Adventures by Disney itinerary.
