    Thinking of booking a VIP tour for our next trip. We will have our dachshund and one of our party will need to go back to the campground to walk her at least once or twice. Is it possible for a member of the tour to leave and comeback or do we have to stay

    Welcome to planDisney, Cierra! I'm thrilled to chat with you about enjoying the theme parks at Walt Disney World in a new and exciting way. 

    Cierra, as a repeat guest, I love trying out different experiences from the Enchanting Extras Collection and of course, the Private VIP Tour is the most customizable of all tour experiences! You and your traveling party can choose which parks you'd like to visit, which attractions you'd like to prioritize, and even what time you'd like your tour to begin!

    Now, in chatting with some friends who have taken the Private VIP Tour, no two groups have exactly the same day! This means that should one of your group members need to devote some time to your dachshund, the other members of the group can continue on with the experience. I have heard tales where the VIP Tour Guide devotes a few hours to a portion of the group who would like to experience thrill rides while a few other members just enjoy the ambiance of the park from a bench in the shade. Please note that with this flexibility there are still parameters to which you would need to adhere. For example, this tour accommodates up to 10 guests. So, even if the person walking your dog is only joining for a portion of the day, they would still be counted as part of the 10.

    Cierra, when you book your Private VIP Tour, there is some pre-planning, so you will have the chance to talk this through with a Cast Member prior to the day. 

    I hope this helps as you're thinking about your upcoming vacation. If you have any additional questions, I hope you'll come on back to planDisney. My fellow panelists and I love to channel our inner Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast when he exclaims, "Why, we only live to serve!"
