    I would like to plan a back of the house tour, but I’m not sure which one is the right one for our family. We are a family of four and my daughters are 17 and 16. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Lynn,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I have taken some tours at Walt Disney World, and I have found them to be both informative and entertaining. Let me share with you a couple of my favorites that I think your family will enjoy.

    At Magic Kingdom, consider Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour. This experience includes time both in the theme park and backstage, including a trip into the famous Utilidors beneath the theme park! At Epcot, look at World Showcase: DestiNations Discovered. On this tour, I learned about the pavilions of World Showcase, and was able to go backstage to get a unique perspective on some of the pavilions. Both of these tours are five hours long and include lunch, and I found the tour guides to be very knowledgeable and wonderful at answering guest questions.

    There are a couple of other unique experiences available. If you are looking for a shorter tour, consider Behind the Seeds at Epcot, where you get an up-close look at the greenhouses at the Land pavilion. Finally, one of my favorite special experiences at Walt Disney World is the Wild Africa Trek. On this adventure, you get to cross rope bridges and see the animals on Kilimanjaro Safaris from a different vantage point.

    Do explore the first link I provided with information on tours at Walt Disney World to see if there are others that appeal to your family, Lynn, and please let us know if you have any further questions!
