    Hi Bernie tks for your help.Do you think we will be able to make it to Les Chefs deFrance at 12 if we take the tour? Do you get to go on any of the rides with this tour like with the keys to tour?Could you also recommend another tour also budget friendly?

    Hi Denise!

    Thank you for sending me this question directly.  I really appreciate it.  Making a 12:00 Advance Dining Reservation will be close in my opinion, but it really depends on the actual tour guide that you get.  You could always leave early, but my suggestion would be to change the ADR to a slightly later time or to a different day even.  We got a 20% off discount at Nine Dragons when I went on the tour and the discount was only available at Nine Dragons.

    On the tour I went on, the only attraction we actually experienced was Soarin'.  We first went on the attraction and then later went backstage to talk about it a little bit.

    For other budget friendly tours, you should consider the following:
    • The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour
    • Behind the Seeds at Epcot
    • Gardens of the World
    • Wild by Design

    My absolute favorite backstage tour is Backstage Magic.  However, it is relatively expensive and not budget friendly.  It is, on the other hand, one of the best tours at Walt Disney World and is similar to Keys to the Kingdom, but goes into more depth.  I haven't heard anybody ever say they didn't enjoy the tour.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
