    I will be visiting WDW in late September, my 7th visit, my wife's 2nd, no kids. I have never taken a tour and would like to do the Backstage Magic tour one day-would you suggest doing it at the beginning of our 7 day stay, or the end?


    Great question, and the answer is neither! I would not recommend that you do it at the start or end of your trip, but instead it in the middle of your visit. Here is why;

    • Always start your visit by letting the magic of the place sweep over you. Don't learn the secrets right away, but be immersed into the worlds that they have created for you.
    • Don't end your visit with the Backstage tour, as it is very cool AFTER taking the tour to visit the parks. It is neat to see how the secrets that you learned actually play out in theĀ parks!

    If doing it in the middle of the trip is not an option, and if I am torn to decide between the start and the end of the trip, I would recommend to do it at the end of the trip.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
