Five Disney-Inspired Destinations with Not a Theme Park in Sight
Here are the five travel destinations that we cover in Episode 9 of our Disney travel podcast (in no particular order):
- Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii
Home of Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Combine a Hawaiian vacation with a touch of Disney magic to satisfy both the Disney traveler and non-Disney traveler alike.
- Nice, France
A favorite destination for Walt Disney and a big part of the inspiration for Disney's Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World. We suggest a stay at Hotel Le Negresco.
- Coronado Island, San Diego, California
Stay at the picturesque and historic Hotel Del Coronado, a beautiful beach front resort and the inspiration for Disney's Grand Floridian Resort.
- Vero Beach, Florida
Many Walt Disney World travelers are unaware that Disney has a laid-back beach front resort in Florida!
- San Francisco, California
A top travel destination in its own right, but did you know that San Francisco is also home to the Walt Disney Family Museum?
