HONORABLE MENTION:  Disney Parks Around the World – a Private Jet Adventure

There’s an argument to be made that the newest Adventures by Disney Trip, “Disney Parks Around the World” might be the most ambitious Adventures by Disney vacation ever.  But will it be the “best”?  That’s hard to say.

If you’re a Disney fan through and through, then it’s hard to argue with the concept of being whisked via private jet to every single Disney park around the world and getting special VIP treatment at each.  On the other hand, if you’re more interested in exploring the truly authentic and original culture of the people of the world, this trip may be a little light on that when compared other traditional AbD offerings.

And, if we’re being fully honest, the $110,000 price tag puts it out of reach for all but the most affluent travelers.
