    Last minute trip checking in late 5/31 and out 6/3 at AKL with just DH. 1st time w/o kids in a long time. DVC members w/ AP, not big eaters. Considering tours. Suggestions?


    I LOVE Disney tours! I just returned from a girls' trip & we took the Backstage Magic Tour. Its awesome! This 7 hr tour gives you a behind the scenes look at all 4 theme parks including the utilidors at MK. We toured the nursery & saw where the WDW gardeners bring to life the incredible topiaries you see throughout WDW. It was super cool to see where parade vehicles, signs & other things are made. Lunch at Whispering Canyon Cafe was super yummy! This tour starts & ends at Epcot. Theme park admission is not required nor included.

    If a 7 hr tour is too long, you may enjoy the Keys to the Kingdom Tour at MK which lasts ~ 4.5 hrs. Theme park admission is not included but is required. You also get to see the utilidors on this tour which explores the stories behind the creation & growth of MK. Hear the intriguing story of Walt Disney & learn how his innovative ideas & revolutionary visions brought MK to life.
    If you are a true Disney history fan & the two above tours are too long or not enough, check out Inspiration: Through Walt's Eyes. During this 3 hr tour, your guides share stories that reveal how Walt Disney was inspired to pursue his dreams & how his desire to succeed influenced those around him.

    For a list of the tours currently offered & descriptions of all tours available, click here. You can book up to 180 days before your visit. Minimum age to take the tours is 16 & a gov issued photo ID is required.
    To check for availability & to book, call 407-WDW-TOUR. If you have a Disney Visa Rewards Card you can save 20% on the price - mention it when booking.

    You'll love watching the magic come to life! My space is limited but please let me know if you have any further questions. Wishing you many magical memories :-)
