    We are visiting WDW May 25-29 and staying at the Yacht club. We are going to take to key to the Kingdom Tour. Do we need to make reservations ahead or can we wait till we get there to sign up. We are unsure of what parks we are going to one each day

    This is an extremely popular tour that is often filled months in advance. If you want to take this tour, you really must call 407-WDW-TOUR now to reserve it.

    The Keys to the Kingdom tour lasts about five hours and is only available for guests ages 16 and older. On the tour, you are walked through many of the backstage areas at the Magic Kingdom. You are allowed to see the utilidor hallways underneath the park, parade staging areas, and learn about the how the park operates from a technical standpoint. The cast member guide will answer all your questions about how the park works and will share lots of Disney trivia and secrets with you. I went on the similar Backstage Magic tour a few months ago and found it beyond fascinating. It was a Disney geek's dream come true :-)  It's really the kind of thing that's worth planning other parts of your vacation around.
