    Visiting WDW April 2017. We only have about 1 3/4 days for the parks. Looking into the VIP tours (the group of 10). Question 1.what time does it start? 2. where is lunch? 3. if a ride is closed, do they add a different one?

    Hi Amy! We have done the wonderful Disney VIP Tours in the past and have another booked for this Thanksgiving.

    For the private small group (up to ten guests including infants) you will need to be prepared to pay for the minimum of seven hours. You can start whenever you choose and can request to be picked up at your resort by your guide. He or she will then take you behind the parks to park in easy access spots to get in and out of attractions and parks without having to deal with the crowds. Each guest must have a park ticket and if you are going to more then one park you will need the park hopper option.

    Meals are at your discretion and you can include your guide or just break away for that time to regroup with your family. We make dining reservations in the park where we will be and include our guide as it is a nice way to relax and get to know them. You are always welcome to enjoy a quick service spot and the guide can assist you with ordering and carrying food to your table. The guides are there to make your day as magical as possible but food is not included in the small VIP tours.

    As I mentioned you have a minimum of seven hours to enjoy the personal services of the guide. If an attraction breaks down or is closed you will simply head to something else that interests you. There is not a specific itinerary but instead it is up to you to decide what you want to do and ride. Let your guide know when you are picked up what the plan will be and they will make it happen.

    You can enjoy one park or try to hit all of them or just a couple of them. Again this is your decision. When you call to reserve the guide services let them know what the basic plan is and if you will want to see parades as they have special seating for that.

    Enjoy your special day....with so little time it is a great way to see as much as possible.
