    We are wanting to go on one of the many backstage tours the next time we visit the Magic Kingdom, but, we have a 9 year old (G), and she is too young to go on the tour with us. Are there any activities that she can enjoy while we are touring?

    Hi, Lee! The various WDW Tours are great. My husband and I have taken a few ourselves, and they made us more enchanted with the parks than we were before! Yet, most are reserved for those guests over the age of 16 -- not only for the information made privy but for safety reasons as well. There is a great tour of the Magic Kingdom suited for the entire family called Disney's Family Magic Tour.

    As far as taking a tour without your daughter, I'm not sure that any of the Kids Programs are going to line up with the early-morning schedules of the tours unless you hire a sitter from Kid's Nite Out to come to your resort room or to accompany your daughter for a morning activity. You can call 407-WDW-TOUR to inquire about the schedules of the tours and 407-WDW-DINE to check into the Pirate Adventures offered at select Disney resorts which are usually held from 9:30-11:30 a.m. That may be your only option of a kids' morning activity, and you would still need someone to watch her before the pirate excursion since you'll probably need to be in a park before 8 a.m.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
