    Have been to WDW many times but 1st time staying on site! I want to surprise my DH, DD19 & DS17 with something special, like a tour. Which one would you recommend?

    Hi Jacqueline,

    You and your family will absolutely love staying on Disney properly. The ease and convenience of being so close to the parks on top of al of the amazing resort properties and amenities had us hooked years ago,

    Disney World offers a number of absolutely fascinating and fun tours that I am sure you will all love. Some of the most popular ones includes the Around the World Segway Tour at Epcot, Wild by Design or Backstage Safari at Animal Kingdom and Dolphins in Depth, or for the certified scuba diver, DiveQuest at Epcot.

    My absolute favorite though, and a great way to learn more about Disney World, the Magic Kingdom and Walt himself is the Keys to the Kingdom at Magic Kingdom. The tour operates daily and takes approximately five hours, with lunch included. With the help of a Disney Cast Member, you will be escorted throughout Magic Kingdom for a look into the history of Walt's life, how Disney World cam to be and what helps keep it moving forward with the magic today. The tour even offers a brief chance to visit the treasured "underground city" otherwise known as the utilidors of Magic Kingdom. It is an perfect way to see what makes Magic Kingdom and Disney World such an amazing place and the attention that goes into every little detail. The tour is approximately $60 per person and separate park admission is required.

    Advance reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 407-WDW-TOUR or 407-939-8687. Additional information about this tour and all others can be found here.

    Hope you all have a magical time!
