Daily Itinerary

New York City from Ellis IlandDay 1

As Thanksgiving ushers in the Christmas season, you’ll be in the middle of it all as you check-in to New York’s best address located directly on Times Square. 5 nights – Marriott Marquis (D)

Rockefeller Center, New YorkDay 2

Disney on Broadway’s Behind the Magic tour is set in the historic New Amsterdam Theatre,
original home of the Ziegfeld Follies, on famed 42nd Street. After this behind-the- scenes experience,
head to Rockefeller Center for lunch and to see the sites there from the iconic Channel Gardens, Saks
Fifth Avenue (and their stunning holiday window displays) and of course St. Patrick’s Cathedral. An
afternoon drive Uptown will encircle Central Park and include stops at Strawberry Fields and Lincoln
Center. The evening is yours to explore. (L)

New York subway entranceDay 3

Travel like a real New Yorker – by subway – Downtown for lunch featuring syndicated theatre
critic Peter Filichia to learn what’s hot and what’s not on the Great White Way. The afternoon focuses
on the past and present of the World Trade Center where you’ll visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum and
take in the breathtaking view from One World Observatory located high atop 1776-foot- tall Freedom
Tower. Tonight is your first taste of Broadway. (L)

Statue of Liberty, New YorkDay 4

Join your Tour Director for a morning adventure to Liberty and Ellis Islands by subway and ferry.
The afternoon is yours for personal exploration. If you prefer not to join us for the Ellis/Liberty
excursion, you can have the entire day free. How about a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art or
shopping on famed Fifth Avenue? The family-style Italian dinner at Carmine’s is a New York tradition,
followed by Choose Your Own Show which means exactly what it says. You pick the show and we get
the tickets – a Sports Leisure exclusive. (D)

Thanksgiving Day ParadeDay 5

It’s the exciting Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Join the anxious throngs on the streets or
watch on television in the comfort (and warmth!) of your room. The parade route is along 6th Avenue
only one block from the hotel. In the afternoon, journey to Radio City Music Hall for the Rockettes
Christmas Spectacular
. A Thanksgiving dinner cruise follows aboard the elegant glass-roofed
Bateaux New York featuring excellent food, live music and great sightseeing as the stars come out
