Report finds $110,000 isn’t the true cost of a six-figure Disney vacation
Earlier this year, The Walt Disney Company announced an all-new adventure experience from Disney – a $110,000 private jet tour around the world, visiting every Disney park as well as other famous landmarks like the Taj Mahal and the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
And while $110,000 per guest might be expensive enough, the true price of the trip has come out.
Run by the president of Disney Signature Experiences, Thomas Mazloum, Adventures by Disney started in 2005 and has evolved over the years to include experiences spanning six continents. From a river cruise to an escape trip, a special adventure to a wild adventure to special games for adults, Adventures by Disney is the epitome of discerning travel.
So, in fact, the company’s latest Disney destination experience is sure to come at a hefty price tag of $109,995 per guest.

Disney parks around the world – a private jet adventure was announced earlier this year. For six figures, 75 guests will tour the world with an adventure guide on a private jet, visiting every Disney park – Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disney Resort, Shanghai Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland. The itinerary includes a total of 31 sites visited and 68 meals over 24 days.
In addition to visits to the Disney resort, travelers will also stay at the exclusive Summit Skywalker Ranch in San Francisco where they will participate in a tour of the Lucasfilm campus, a tour of the Taj Mahal, and a visit to the Pyramids of Giza. The list already continues the path of this special adventure trip, and for any Disney fanatic, this is the vacation of her dreams.
But, this magical ride, which sold out quickly, comes at a cost — and no, not its hefty six-figure price tag.
A debtor report found that Disney parks around the world – a private jet adventure will emit 6.2 tons of carbon per guest, 20 times more than the “poor”.
for every Watchman:
An analysis by the Clean Transportation, Transportation and Environment (T&E) group found that jet fuel burned to power the plane on its total flight of 19,600 miles (31,500 kilometres) would emit a total of 462 tons of carbon dioxide — or 6.2 tons per thrust. guest, which is more than most people in the world represent in an entire year.
T&E Director of Aviation, Joe Darden said:
“This Disney tour shows once again that no mode of transportation is more unfair than air travel. Only the privileged few can fly, blowing out their annual carbon footprint with just one vacation. And while the price tag may seem exorbitant, it doesn’t reflect adequately the true cost of pollution.”

According to the Climate Report, a Disney spokesperson said Disney has a “longstanding commitment to protecting the planet and delivering a positive environmental legacy for future generations”:
Disney will monitor and balance emissions from the tour with “investments in certified, high-quality natural climate solutions” that will “lead to proven emissions reductions.”
“Our investments in these projects also prioritize providing co-benefits such as preserving wildlife habitats, creating jobs, protecting water resources, and minimizing impacts from floods and soil erosion,” the spokesperson said.
The report also gives a stark reminder:
If the world were to achieve the goal of staying within 1.5°C of global warming, each person on Earth would need to emit only 2.3 tons of carbon dioxide on average.2 year by 2030.
So, as Disney’s world holiday adventure approaches next year, and global warming rises, a single vacation for 75 people will emit three times the target, per person, for 2030.
