Tour Tuesday: Backstage Magic

It's time for a new series here on the blog. I've been thinking lately about some of the tours that are offered at Walt Disney World, and it dawned on me... not many people know about the various tours they could experience while at Disney World. Yes, some are kind of pricey, but in doing my research I was surprised by how reasonable so many of them really were. So, meet me here for the next several Tuesdays, and I'll be happy to share some info on the tours with you!

Available weekdays at 9am this exciting 7-8 hour tour starts at Epcot and allows you the opportunity to see all four parks in one day and more!

Experience an insider's look at the daily operations at attractions in each of the parks to include a tour of the Magic Kingdom "Utilidor" tunnels, Creative Costuming, Centrals Shops (magical details around the Resort), Walt Disney World Nursery & Tree Farm, and some more surprises along the way.

You're going to get hungry with all this exploring, so a stop for lunch at the Whispering Canyon Café will do just right to hit the spot. And it's included in the price of the tour!

Not only will you leave this magical tour with a sense of history and "secrets" explained, you even get a special little something to take home to commemorate your experience.

Oh, and bottled water is provided throughout the tour!

The cost for this tour is $249-$255 per person, plus tax.

Now, for the Know Before You Go:
  • Park Admission Required: NO
  • Park Admission Included: NO
  • Age Requirements: 16 years and older
  • You must have a valid photo ID
  • Proper footwear is required (tennis shoes/athletic shoes)- no open-toed or open-heeled shoes allowed. (It's a lot of walking- think practical, comfortable shoes)
