Disney’s “Adventures at Home” Series Features Greece
Who’s ready to see the world from the comfort of your home? Adventures by Disney is offering “Adventures at Home” series on a virtual journey across the globe. And you won’t even need to pack your bags! In this at home itinerary, DisneyParksBlog features Greece. Let’s go!
Long ago, in the far away land of ancient Greece… If you recognize these words you are in for the virtual trip of a lifetime! During today’s Adventure at Home we are going to explore the land of powerful gods and extraordinary heroes, so get ready to say “OPA!” as we celebrate the magic of Greece with Adventures by Disney.
1.Did Someone Say Toga Party?
A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the accessories on his toga. You and your family can celebrate Greece with this historical attire that is easy to recreate at home. All you need is some bedsheets (preferably in a neutral color) and safety pins. If you want to go the distance, you can accessorize with fake gold chains (or real, no one is judging), jewelry, or amulets. A pair of sandals will complete the look.
2.Like Painting a Masterpiece, it’s a Work of Heart!
Time to call the Muses, legendary goddesses of the arts. Today’s family game is going to put your artistic abilities to the test as you draw items inspired by our Greece itinerary while your family guesses. Just print this game guide and get ready to play Adventures by Disney – Draw it! Greece Edition.
Our Greece itinerary features LOTS of culinary highlights but there is a flakey slice of cheesy magic that stands out. In the beautiful island of Crete, Adventurers learn to prepare a traditional pastry made with cheese, honey and filo dough, the Cretan Cheese Pie. Download the recipe here.
4.I Have Often Dreamed of a Far-Off Place
You’ll be the envy of friends, coworkers, classmates and family when you use these virtual backgrounds for your next video conference.
The first backdrop gives you a bird’s eye view of the breathtaking island of Santorini, where whitewashed villages envelop cliffs that tower above an underwater caldera.
Our second backdrop features the famous Acropolis, a testimony to the greatness of ancient Greece. Located on a flat rock overlooking Athens, this citadel is home to some of Greece’s most famous monuments, including the Parthenon. Right click on each image above to save the virtual backdrops.

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
