and Residents of Golden Oak on Sept. 18, 2018. Bookings open for all other guests on Sept. 20, 2018. Read on to discover all that’s in store on these exciting itineraries …
Best of Boston – Past and Present
On the new four-day, three-night Short Escape itinerary in Boston, travelers will discover treasured American history and spirited contemporary culture.
Guests will be immersed in the city’s legendary stories during privately guided tours along the Freedom Trail and the Old North Church—where many famous moments of the American Revolution took place—and a special after-hours visit to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum that concludes with a private dinner steeped in the city’s storied roots. Other family-friendly excursions and activities include rowing along the Charles River, biking the city on a private adventure, exploring the grounds of Harvard Yard, and indulging in a delicious buffet of seafood, chicken, corn-on-the-cob and more at a private New England clambake on Thompson Island.
The new Boston Short Escape is available on select dates in May through October 2019.
Bucket List Getaway in London
Guests will revel in the royal treatment with VIP experiences in one of the world’s most iconic cities during the new three-day, two-night Short Escape in London, which can be booked as a stand-alone vacation or as a pre-cruise add-on to Disney Cruise Line sailings out of nearby Dover, England.
The itinerary is filled with exceptional experiences, including a once-in-a-lifetime, private viewing of the royal Crown Jewels led by the Tower of London’s Jewel House Warden; a private, high-speed thrill ride in a rib boat along the River Thames; and a privately guided tour of Westminster Abbey, the revered site of royal coronations and weddings. Families will also witness the time-honored tradition of the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.
The new London Short Escape is available on select dates in July, August and September 2019.
City Highlights and Outdoor Recreation in Vancouver
Active adventures and culinary delights await on the new three-day, two-night Short Escape itinerary in Vancouver, which can be booked as a stand-alone vacation or as the perfect complement to a Disney Cruise Line Alaska voyage.
Guests will discover unparalleled views of the city’s lush natural surroundings during exciting outdoor activities like ziplining and gondola rides at Grouse Mountain, a privately guided tour at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, and a morning bike ride through Stanley Park. They’ll get a taste of the city’s thriving culinary scene during a “foodie” walking tour of Granville Island’s famous Public Market, and there’s even a special scavenger hunt expedition just for Junior Adventurers while adults unwind with beer and wine flights at a local tasting room.
The trip also features early morning access to Grouse Mountain’s resident grizzly bear habitat, where guests can observe bears up-close, learn from a local bear expert and enjoy a private breakfast with amazing views. Other highlights include photo-worthy encounters with lively lumberjacks, birds of prey and towering totem poles.
The new Vancouver Short Escape is available on select dates in May through September 2019.
