This year marks the 100th anniversary of the National Parks Service. While many are commemorating this milestone by flocking to our national parks during the summertime, these natural playgrounds are equally bewitching during the winter months. Imagine exploring a snow-covered Yellowstone National Park, following animal footprints during a snowshoe expedition, setting off on a sleigh ride and toasting marshmallows over a warm fire. You can do all this, and more, on the Adventures by Disney Winter in Wyoming Long Weekend vacation.

I can’t imagine anything more picturesque than setting off on a dog sled tour through the majestic Wyoming scenery. Freshly fallen snow creates an almost dreamlike backdrop for visiting West Thumb Geyser Basin, watching Old Faithful erupt or marveling at frozen waterfalls. Explore the region with a naturalist as you look for bison, elk, otters, bald eagles and more. To warm up on a chilly winter night you’ll also enjoy dinner inside a teepee.

New trip dates were recently added for early 2017, departing on Jan. 14 and Feb. 12. Both dates fall during holiday weekends, making this 4-night adventure the perfect long weekend getaway for your family. Make it your New Years resolution to get in touch with nature on the Adventures by Disney Winter in Wyoming vacation!
