Room With A View: Costa Rican Volcanoes With Adventures by Disney

posted on August 3rd, 2015 by Amanda Adler, Public Relations Manager


What sort of view do you want on your dream vacation? Rolling hills, epic mountains, serene lakes, lush vegetation, bustling cityscapes; whichever you prefer you can find it with Adventures by Disney. While I have a hard time picking my favorite, I can’t help but be intrigued by this volcano view, found on the Adventures by Disney Costa Rica trip.

This view of Arenal volcano is visible just outside your window at the Hotel Arenal Fortuna, which serves as the home base for two nights of this Costa Rican adventure. Not only will you enjoy this spectacular sight, you’ll also take flight on a zip line excursion through the rainforest, soak in relaxing hot springs, set off on a white water rafting adventure and more.

And if you’re the type who enjoys basking in a relaxing ocean view the Adventures by Disney Costa Rica vacation offers that too. You can soak in some sea breezes in Guanacaste, on the western coast of the country, and enjoy beach time, a private catamaran excursion, mojito making and other activities perfect for simply unwinding.

What is your dreamiest vacation view?

VIDEO – Visiting Ice Palace Boutique at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Frozen Summer Fun

A few weeks ago I shared details about the recently opened Ice Palace Boutique at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a wintry salon where guests ages 3-12 can undergo a magical transformation, as they prepare for Coronation day during Frozen Summer Fun. In honor of National Sister’s Day yesterday, August 2, I thought it would be a perfect time to check out the “Frozen” fun with fellow teammate Katie Thompson.

Here are a few additional images I captured during our visit. The cupcakes in the Ice Palace Café were delicious!

The Ice Palace Boutique will only be offered during Frozen Summer Fun at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which continues through September 7, 2015.

Reservations can be made in advance and are highly recommended. To book your appointment, please call 407-827-7400. Guests under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian permission to call. The location may be able to accommodate guests without reservations on a limited, first-come, first-serve basis each day.
