New England Memories
New England Pin Set
The New England itinerary is brand new to Adventures by Disney this season and we are thrilled to be among the very firsts guests to experience the trip! Our adventure promises a journey into the very fabric of America as we explore the picturesque country farms and quaint villages that dot the pastoral landscapes punctuated with meandering rivers and scenic mountains. It is our hope that our adventures through New England will evoke a true sense of Americana and provide a lifetime of memories and experiences that our family will treasure.
Arrive in Burlington VT
Upon arrival at Burlington, we were met by an Adventures by Disney representative to assist with our luggage and drive us to the Hilton Burlington.
We are excited to call the beautiful Hilton Burlington home for the next few nights. Located just a block away from from Waterfront Park and a few minutes walk to Church Street Marketplace , we can’t wait to start exploring!
For families, two rooms is the same price as one so we always go with two for the extra space, extra bathroom and easier sleeping arrangements. Both rooms are identical at this resort.
We received a welcome letter from our guides – Liz and Tiffany – and can’t wait to meet them tomorrow!
The view of Lake Champlain from our rooms is breathtaking.
The Farmhouse Tap & Grill Dinner & Church Street Marketplace
We enjoyed an amazing dinner at Farmhouse Tap & Grill to kick off our culinary adventure. I promised the guys lots of cheese, ice cream and beer on this leg of the trip and we got that kicked off right away. :-)
The Farmhouse was absolutely delicious – everything was so fresh and we enjoyed trying each others meals. We started with cheese and Honey is already in love with the Von Trapp beers. Whit and I shared the turkey burger and mac & cheese, John opted for the pot roast and Honey did the pork burger with cheddar ale soup.
After dinner we took in the charming Church Street Marketplace, that was alive with happy guests and sparkling with twinkle lights.
It was the perfect start to a new adventure!

If you’re ready to learn more, I’d LOVE to talk your ear off about YOUR adventure! :-) My job is to handle all of the details so you can enjoy the anticipation of your trip without the stress and time commitment of “figuring everything out”. I am one of very few travel advisors that personally travels with Adventures by Disney – having taken THREE different trips in just 5 years – and can guide you every step of the way. On top of that, family vacations are expensive and my experience and attention to detail make it possible to get the most out of your vacation dollars. Best of all, booking through me does not cost one cent more than doing it on your own.
