    Hi - we are not staying on property but will want to book a private tour. Are we able to do that? Thx

    Hi Judith,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! I sometimes stay off-site while enjoying every magical moment at Walt Disney World Resort, so I’m happy to assist you in making magic of your own!

    You will be glad to know that you do not have to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel to book a Disney Private VIP Tour or any of the other Enchanting Extras Collection tours or events. You can book a tour beginning 60 days in advance of your desired date, even staying off-site. Now, Guests at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel have the added benefit of scheduling events and dining for their entire stay beginning 60 days from their date of check-in, so resort hotel Guests have an advantage in booking those hard-to-get reservations. My advice for off-site Guests is to be flexible with your dates.

    Judith, I confirmed with a Cast Member that if you are staying in one of the off-site hotels listed under More Great Accommodations under the Places to Stay tab on the website, the VIP Guide should be able to pick you up from your hotel. When you call to book your reservation, please let the Cast Member know where you are staying to confirm this information. 

    Before the date of your visit, a member of the Disney Private VIP Tour team should contact you to discuss the pickup location and time, as well as any other plans you are hoping to include in your tour. So, start dreaming now about what to include in your magical day! Remember that each member of your party will need valid theme park admission, which is not included in the tour price.

    It looks like you are visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth when the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is typically offered! It is a perfect time to plan a full day strolling through the topiaries and enjoying the small bites and beverages at the Outdoor Kitchens. 

    As you plan your epic vacation, please let us know if you have more questions. We are here to help!

    Wishing you magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
