Moab, UT and Arches National Park are still in the mix for the 2008 Adventures by Disney travel plans. Early on Sept. 4th they announced the complete listing of destinations available for the new, adding a few new exciting places. As stated from their release:

"Adventures by Disney takes guests on awe-inspiring travels throughout the U.S. and around the world - with a style that is immersive, authentic and distinctly Disney," said Ed Baklor, senior vice president, Adventures by Disney. "Building on the phenomenal success of 12 itineraries in 2007, our guests will be thrilled with the exhilarating special experiences we have created for them in 2008."

A few of the new additions include:

-- Sacred Valleys and Incan Cities - Peru: Lima, Sacred Valley,
Machu Picchu, Cusco
-- Flavors of France - Provence, Paris
-- Backstage Magic - Hollywood, Disneyland
-- Coasting the Golden State - San Francisco, Cambria, Santa Barbara,
Los Angeles
-- Grande Espana - Madrid, Seville, Barcelona
-- Once Upon A Fairy Tale - Germany: Heidleberg, Trendelburg, Rothenburg,
-- Enchanted China - Beijing, Chengdu, Guilin, Shanghai, Hong Kong
-- Discovery Down Under - N. Queensland, Great Barrier Reef, Ayers Rock,

If the returning Southwest Vacations, Southern Utah has a great presence:

-- Southwest Splendors - Sedona, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Moab, Arches

Its good to see that notable vacation providers such as Adventures by Disney have begun to pick up Southern Utah on the map. It really is a family friendly place for vacationers and sightseeing.

Although, with the influx of travelers year over year (Moab Adventure Center has seen around a 15% increase in visitors since 2006) some of the Southern Utah towns (Moab) will need to adjust to higher volumes of tourists and economy demands. It will be interesting to see how the community adjusts to big ticket items coming to visit.
