by Carrie with Children with 4 comments

Adventures by Disney announced two additional destinations today for the 2012 travel season – Greece and Northern France.  These guided tours allow families to discover new destinations – Disney style!

The Greek Odyssey adventures takes families through Athens, Crete and Santorini – discovering mythology and more at the Parthenon as well as a visit to the birthplace of the modern Olympics.  Kids can even experience stomping grapes as adults take part in a wine tasting adventure.  It sounds like an amazing trip to me!

In Crete, guests are immersed in mountain culture with lessons in cheese making, herding and Greek dancing

The Northern France adventure visits Château du Clos Lucé, da Vinci’s last known home as well as a visit to Monet’s Gardens to create your own artwork!  It doesn’t get much more inspiring than that when it comes to artwork!  The highlight of the trip to me?  A visit to the American cemetery in Omaha Beach commemorating the 1944 D-Day invasion.

    Greece is amazing and I’d love to go back again. I’ve heard so many amazing things about ABD trips. It’s definitely how I envision traveling the world with our children while they are younger.

      I would LOVE to go to Greece too! The food there must be amazing! I can’t even imagine how cool it would be to travel ABD style – once in a lifetime, I bet!

    How gorgeous! If I went abroad, it would definitely be with ABD. I would love to do it.

      I think it would be such an amazing experience, not just for adults but kids too! That’s very cool Heath spent time in Greece as a child. I bet he has great memories of it!
