    If I buy the 7 hr Backstage Magic Tour do I still need to buy a park ticket to stay in EPCOT or the Majic Kingdom after the tour is over?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dennis! 

    The Backstage Magic tour is a great way to spend the day if you're a major Disney fan who wants to see how all the magic is brought to life. The tour is seven hours long and you'll get the chance to see some amazing things like backstage looks at restaurants and major nighttime spectaculars, and even a glimpse at where the costumes are made for performers all around the Theme Parks! You'll also get the chance to visit some of the secret hidden passageways around Magic Kingdom Park that help keep everything running smoothly and seamlessly, so get ready for the experience of a lifetime. Theme Park tickets are not required in order to participate in Backstage Magic and they are not included with the tour, so if you want to spend the rest of the day at Epcot or Magic Kingdom Park when you're finished you'll need to have separate admission.

    If you don't want to purchase a full day's admission, this would be a great opportunity to spend some time at Disney Springs! On a day where I don't have a Theme Park ticket, I love exploring the shops and checking out what's new at World of Disney. Disney Springs is also home to some of my favorite food, like the New England Lobster Roll from The BOATHOUSE or the Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef from Morimoto Asia that is cooked right at your table, so make sure to stop by to grab something to eat, do a little shoping, and take in some live entertainment.

    Have a magical day, Dennis!
