Adventures by Disney, the high-end family vacation tour company
run by the world's most famous mouse, will be heading to southeast
Asia in 2013.
The tour will include stops in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, three
of the hottest new vacation spots in the world.
Adventures by Disney Vice President Josh D'Amaro announced the
new itinerary on Sunday during a media event aboard Disney's newest
cruise ship, the Disney Fantasy. The 4,000-passenger ship will be
running seven-day cruises from Port Canaveral, Fla., to the eastern
and western Caribbean.
Adventures by Disney does on land what the company's cruise
ships do by sea: Offers a terrific family vacation experience that
allows parents to return home feeling like they had a vacation
As the family vacation planner, it's a rare thing for me to come
home feeling like I gotren a break too. But when my kids and I were
invited to join an Adventures by Disney trip to Italy a couple of
years ago, that was exactly how I felt. I didn't even have to take
the photos-the two Disney tour guides did that for us, along with
making sure all of the vacation details were handled. That included
making sure our luggage magically appeared in our rooms at the next
destination, that we never had to wait in line to see a site, even
that the microphones and ear buds used by our local tour guides
Adventures by Disney is a "premium" vacation and comes at a
premium price. But sometimes spending a little more is worth
