Penguins and Antarctica with Adventures by Disney! Experience the Seventh Continent with Film Producer Roy Conli

Adventures by Disney Penguins and Antartica with Roy Conli

Adventures by Disney is known for delighting guests with incredible and unique travel experiences around the world. So I’m thrilled to share some really cool news (pun intended) about an upcoming trip. 

Roy Conli, a Disney Animation Studios Academy Award winner and a producer on Disneynature’s “Penguins” feature film, is joining our upcoming expedition cruise to Antarctica & Patagonia

This trip with Roy is available only through Adventures by Disney and is a can’t-miss adventure for anyone who has dreamed about visiting this destination. Imagine experiencing Antarctica and penguins not only in person and with guidance from our expert naturalists, but also through the lens of an award-winning Disney producer! Roy will inspire guests with his onboard special lecture on “Penguins.” 

This amazing journey begins in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires where upon arrival at the hotel, guests are greeted by the Disney-trained Adventure Guides who magically take care of all the details throughout the trip. Next, the group travels to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in South America, before boarding the ship and setting sail to Antarctica. Immediately, magnificent panoramic views are seen from vantage points on deck, through the expansive windows as well as up-close when stepping onto the famed continent. Days are carefully planned to respect the environment while adventurers enjoy Zodiac cruises or kayaking through ice caps and past glaciers, hiking, observing penguins, whales, seals and other wildlife, marveling at the bird life flying above and learning from expert naturalists every step of the way.  

When I heard Roy was joining this departure, I rewatched Disneynature’s “Penguins” on Disney+, and I’m so glad I did. The cinematography is stunning both on land and below the surface of the ocean. “Penguins” is a family-friendly film and a delight for fans of these cuties (and who isn’t?). The story follows an Adelie penguin named Steve, who like millions of his fellow males in Antarctica, is on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family.  

Not only was Roy a producer on “Penguins,” he has produced and worked on favorite Disney films such as “Big Hero 6,” for which he won the Academy Award®, “Tangled,” “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” “Hercules,” “Tarzan,” “Treasure Planet” and “Strange World.” He also was a producer on Disneynature’s “Born in China,” “Dolphin Reef” and “Elephant.”  

As with all Adventures by Disney trips, Adventure Guides bring the destination to life through the magic of storytelling and immersive, entertaining activities for everyone, including hosting special gatherings just for the kids, aka “Junior Adventurers.” Expert naturalists lead the way on-land and through onboard sessions, teaching us about Antarctica’s natural splendor.
