Disney-owned tour operator Adventures by Disney has added cruises on France's Seine River to its 2019 lineup and Southern California land tours this year.

The land tour can be an add-on for Disney cruises out of San Diego.

Since it launched river cruises in partnership with AmaWaterways in 2016, Adventures by Disney has been steadily growing. It will offer 21 departures on three European rivers (Danube, Rhine and Seine) in 2019.

The 10-day Seine package starts with two days in Paris followed by eight days cruising the river. The itinerary will include guided Paris tours, regional wine and cheese sampling, a hands-on demonstration for making macarons, a visit to artist Claude Monet's house and gardens in Giverny, a hands-on painting workshop, a visit to the Normandy American Cemetery, and active excursions involving biking, canoeing, horseback riding and hiking.

Guests on Disney's Seine cruises will learn how to make macarons.

There will be two summer departures for families and two epicurean-themed sailings in the fall exclusively for adults.

Adventures by Disney will offer a mix of family and adults-only departures of their Danube and Rhine cruises in 2019. There will be eight summer Rhine sailings in 2019 for families and two adults-exclusive epicurean sailings during the fall. There will be five family Danube departures during the summer, a family holiday-themed sailing in December and an adults Oktoberfest-themed sailing in September along the Danube.

The four-day Southern California itinerary includes tours of the Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering, VIP experiences at Disneyland Resort, a visit to Walt Disney's Disneyland apartment, and a look at props and costumes from Disney films at the Disney Archives.

The package is available on select dates this spring and fall.
