    I am thinking about doing the Keys to the Magic Tour at my next visit in March. Can you tell me a little more about this tour and if it is worth it? Or are there other tours that you suggest? Also, how far in advance do you need reservations?

    Hi Mallory,

    I believe that you are referring to the Keys to the Kingdom Tour.  I have heard wonderful reports about nearly every tour that Walt Disney World offers.  Especially for guests who visit often and are looking for something new and different, these tours are great.  I also think that they tend to be a very good deal.  There is so much information and typically a fairly low cast member to guest ratio.  The Keys to the Kingdom focuses on the Magic Kingdom.  There is an even more extensive tour, the Backstage Magic, which lasts for seven hours and visits all four Walt Disney World theme parks.  Both of these experiences are quite in-depth.

    There are a couple of other special experiences at Walt Disney World that I really like.  For a good first tour, you might consider the Behind the Seeds Tour at Epcot.  This tour is only about an hour long, is quite inexpensive, and takes you on a tour of the greenhouses at The Land Pavilion.  Another adventure that I really enjoyed recently was the Wild Africa Trek at Disney's Animal Kingdom, where you are able to see Kilimanjaro Safaris from a whole new perspective, including crossing rope bridges while harnessed to an overhead track and having snacks on a special elevated pavilion on the savanna.

    For any of these tours, I would suggest that you book as soon as you know that you would like to go.  You can book any of them by calling 407-WDW-TOUR (407-939-8687).  Have a great time planning your trip Mallory, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
