    Looking into a behind the scene tour. Any advice or suggestions. Thinking either the steam trains or the keys to the kingdom. We have never done any before.

    Hi Lewis,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Over the past few years, I have been able to experience some of the Walt Disney World tours. For guests who return to Walt Disney World again and again, I find these to be a wonderful way to add to your experience at Walt Disney World. You gain a new perspective on Walt Disney World.

    The tours that you have chosen should be wonderful. I recently experienced Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour. For someone who has visited Magic Kingdom many times, this was a wonderful way to learn more about Walt Disney World, and we got to visit the Utilidors! Though I have not experienced it myself, Disney's The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour looks quite interesting, especially if you have someone very interested in trains in your group.

    One consideration for choosing a tour is the time involved. Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour is five hours long, and Disney's Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour is three hours long. While I think that these are great investments of time, consider if all members of your party will think so as well. One tour that is only an hour and is fun and informative is the Behind the Seeds Tour in The Land Pavilion at Epcot.

    I suggest that you read the "Know Before You Go" section of the webpage on any tour that you are considering. This has important information about the tour, including minimum age required to go on a specific tour.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Lewis! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
