Sometimes a Disney traveler may be looking for an alternative to a typical Disney theme park vacation, but may have a hard time actually breaking away from their usual Walt Disney World vacation.

So if you're looking to expand your Disney travel horizons, see how each of these five exceptional places are well worth considering for your next vacation.

Five Disney-Inspired Destinations with Not a Theme Park in Sight

Here are the five travel destinations that we cover in Episode 9 of our Disney travel podcast (in no particular order):
  1. Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii
    Home of Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Combine a Hawaiian vacation with a touch of Disney magic to satisfy both the Disney traveler and non-Disney traveler alike.
  2. Nice, France
    A favorite destination for Walt Disney and a big part of the inspiration for Disney's Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World. We suggest a stay at Hotel Le Negresco.
  3. Coronado Island, San Diego, California
    Stay at the picturesque and historic Hotel Del Coronado, a beautiful beach front resort and the inspiration for Disney's Grand Floridian Resort.
  4. Vero Beach, Florida
    Many Walt Disney World travelers are unaware that Disney has a laid-back beach front resort in Florida!
  5. San Francisco, California
    A top travel destination in its own right, but did you know that San Francisco is also home to the Walt Disney Family Museum?
