Read on for a day-by-day look into all the magical memories guests can make on this trip!
Days 1-3: Los Angeles and Anaheim
On Day 1, you’ll head to the first stop on this world tour, the place where The Walt Disney Company’s theme park journey began: California. You’ll take a flight into one of the Southern California airports and be whisked away to the Grand Californian Hotel. Once your Adventure Guides have checked you in and you’ve freshened up in your room, you’ll get to enjoy a welcome dinner for the entire group at the Lincoln Theatre at Disneyland Park. To end the evening, you’ll have a reserved viewing spot for the Disneyland fireworks.
Day 2 begins with breakfast at the hotel before heading over to the Walt Disney Studios lot for a privately guided tour of the Walt Disney Archives, the Animation and Ink & Paint Buildings, Walt Disney’s Office Suite, and more. After eating lunch on the studio lot, you’ll continue exploring the rest of what the Walt Disney Studios has to offer for the remainder of the afternoon. You can even take the opportunity to purchase exclusive studio and Cast Member gear at the Studio Store. Lastly, you’ll indulge in dinner at Disneyland Resort before going to Disney California Adventure Park for desserts, champagne, and the World of Color spectacular.
You’ll start Day 3 bright and early with pre-open access to Disneyland Park and a private breakfast at The Golden Horseshoe. The rest of the day will be spent playing in the theme parks, with a VIP tour of Disneyland in the morning and Disney California Adventure after lunch. After exploring the parks, the day’s festivities will conclude with a private dinner in the former home of Starcade.
Days 4-5: San Francisco
Your first group flight of the trip will happen in the morning on Day 4. After one last breakfast at the Grand Californian Hotel, you’ll hop onto a private jet and head to San Francisco for some more Disney history and fun. After arriving, your first stop will be at the Walt Disney Family Museum for a private tour. You’ll enjoy lunch at the museum before visiting the Lucasfilm Campus for a VIP tour. Then, you’ll head to your home for the next two days: Summit Skywalker Ranch, which is reserved exclusively for you and the rest of the group. Once you’ve settled in and eaten dinner, you’ll be able to partake in a variety of activities, including games, movies, and even a tasting of wine selections from the ranch’s vineyards.
Day 5 will be spent enjoying all that Summit Skywalker Ranch has to offer. The resort is massive and there are many options available, so you’ll certainly find something fun and interesting to keep you busy! Throughout the day, you can choose to participate in a variety of activities. These may include working out in a yoga class, taking a nature hike, tasting more wines from the Skywalker Vineyards and Disney Family of Wines, exploring the gardens around the property, and even simply relaxing by the pool, with a break for lunch midday. In the evening after dinner, you’ll have the opportunity to show off your Disney and Star Wars knowledge with a trivia event!
Day 6: Oakland/Anchorage/Tokyo
After breakfast at Summit Skywalker Ranch on Day 6, you’ll pack up and board the jet at Oakland Airport for your first extended flight of the trip to Tokyo, Japan. The great thing about flying with Adventures by Disney is that there are extra measures taken to ensure you’re comfortable during your long journeys.
Because it’s such a long flight, you’ll be served some tasty snacks and a delicious lunch while your Adventure Guides lead everyone through some fun games and challenges to help pass the time.
The plane will make a short stop in Anchorage, Alaska before beginning the long flight over the ocean to Tokyo. You may want to take a nap during the trip, as the plane will cross over the International Date Line, and you’ll be sent back in time several hours before a half of a day of activities left to enjoy.
Days 7-9: Tokyo
Day 7 is really more like half a day due to the time change from California to Tokyo. When you arrive in Tokyo, Japan, you’ll make your way to Tokyo Disneyland, the second park of your trip. You’ll check into the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, where you’ll be staying for three nights. You and the group will then partake in a private dining experience at Sherwood Garden Restaurant inside the hotel. If you’re tired from the long flight, you may decide to head to your room and relax for the night. However, if you have a bit of energy left, you can head into either Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea for a couple hours before the parks close. We rank Tokyo DisneySea as one of our top Disney Parks around the world!
Day 8 is where the fun in Tokyo really begins. Once you’ve eaten breakfast at Sherwood Garden Restaurant, you and the group will experience a pre-park opening tour of Tokyo DisneySea hosted by the Disney Imagineers. Once the parks have opened, you can choose to explore both Tokyo DisneySea and Tokyo Disneyland with expedited access to the attractions so you can take in as much as possible. After eating lunch at a restaurant of your choice, you can continue to enjoy the parks along with reserved seating for Tokyo Disneyland’s afternoon parade. Dinner will be served at Magellan’s in Tokyo DisneySea, and to finish out the day, you’ll get reserved seating for Tokyo DisneySea’s nighttime spectacular.
Following breakfast on Day 9, you’ll have three different options to choose from for how you’d like to spend your final day in Tokyo. You can continue to spend time in the theme parks on your own with expedited access to the attractions, or you can choose between several full or half-day tours. The full-day excursion will take you to see beautiful temples and shrines throughout the southern city of Kamakura. If you decide you’d like to experience two half-day tours instead, you can spend time learning about local art, architecture, music, or nature. Both the full-day and half-day tours include lunch to keep your energy up. Then, to finish out your time in Tokyo, you and the rest of the group will have a private dinner in Tokyo Disneyland.
Days 10-11: Shanghai
On Day 10, you’ll eat breakfast and lunch on-the-go as you travel to your next stop and the third Disney park on this trip: Shanghai Disney Resort. Once you’ve arrived, there are a few activities you can choose to partake in for the afternoon. You can spend time in Shanghai Disneyland and enjoy expedited attraction access to soak in as much of the theme park as you can or you can select an experience that will show you Shanghai’s culture. Take in the city’s history through several different tour options, participate in a cooking class, or learn how to write Chinese calligraphy—the choice is up to you! In the evening, you can decide to get dinner and spend more time in Shanghai Disneyland or you can have dinner in the city before viewing an acrobatic performance at the Shanghai Circus World Circular Theater.

On Day 15, you have the opportunity to wake up before the sun to head to the Taj Mahal for some sunrise photos. If you’d rather sleep in a bit, you can have breakfast at the Bellevue Restaurant in the hotel before deciding what you’d like to do for the day. In the morning, you have the choice between taking tours of historic architecture, including the Taj Mahal, or relaxing at the hotel with yoga or lounging by the pool.
