    Have anybody done a VIP Tour? Was it worth it?

    Hi Luana!

    My family has enjoyed many VIP tours and we actually have plans to book another one this fall. It is always hard to state whether spending someone else's money is worth it as we all look at things so differently in regards to worth.

    The VIP tours are very popular with families who like to put the hands of planning to someone else. When you book a tour you will be assigned an experienced VIP guide who will plan your time according to your wishes. You can enjoy one park and do everything there with your guide or you can plan multiple parks where your guide will transport you between them. I have found that the Magic Kingdom is a great place to use a guide if you have younger children since it is hard to just pick three FastPasses from the long list of attractions that use them. With the VIP guide you will be able to get in the FastPass lines and cut down the wait times.

    If you choose to do more then one park you will then pick and choose which attractions you can get in during your tour time. Some guests prefer just to do the thrill rides while others just pick their own favorites.

    By booking a VIP Tour you will have access to all FastPass attractions and can do them all or just a few but you are not limited to three as all other guests have. Many times special show seating is arranged at such places as the Lion King Show in the Animal Kingdom park. You can request VIP seating for parades and fireworks and night shows too. They will also assist you in getting dining reservations for that day.

    This fall we will hit every park by starting early when the first park opens. We will then end in Epcot with dinner followed by the first evening of the Candlelight Processional. It will be a long day but we have so much we want to do and this is a great way to get it all accomplished. I do recommend the tours if your budget says yes!
