The experience offers 75 exclusive seats aboard the private Boeing 757 – and the only listed trip, scheduled for July 2023, is now fully booked. The experience was scheduled to open for public booking on June 28, 2022 – but these spots have already been picked up by previous Adventures by Disney and Golden Oak VIP customers during a presale on June 20, 2022.

This means that all 75 places have been filled, in just about 5 days.

The only shot you would have now to participate in this luxurious experience (provided you already have the time and the funds), is to call Disney and join the waitlist.

Departing from Los Angeles and Disneyland Resort in California, the private plane will take off from San Francisco to travel around the world to Disney’s international theme parks (Tokyo Disney Resort, Shanghai Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland and Disneyland Paris) before landing in Orlando, Florida, ending at Walt Disney World Resort.

This begs the question – along with the elimination of free FastPass systems with one park ticket around the world and the implementation of paid Lightning Lane, Genie+ and Premier Access – if this is the direction in which the Walt is heading. Disney Company pricing terms for their theme park experiences.

There has been a significant increase in prices for Disney products around the world, from tickets to merchandise to resort stays, the House of Mouse has encouraged even greater spending by guests. But with Disney parks revenue of $1 billion, visitor spending up 40%, and international resorts like Tokyo also leaning into a more valuable guest experience, costs could rise further.

Is the trend of one-of-a-kind, ultra-luxurious and exclusive theme park experiences being marketed only to those who can afford them, something we’ll see more of from Disney in the future?
