    Hi I was wondering the pros and cons of the keys to the kingdom tour vs the marciline tour? My husband and I are honeymooning this June and this is our first trip to Disney World! I am surprising my husband with a tour and want the best bang for our buck

    Greetings Kirstin and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Congratulations on your marriage and for your first trip to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Feel free to peruse the above website where you can compare resorts, Dining Plans, Theme Park ticket options, activities and much more before booking your Magic Your Way Vacation Package in the comfort of your home.

    I have experienced both Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour and Walt Disney: Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour and loved their unique offerings.

    "Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour" currently includes (subject to change) a souvenir 'key' which unlocks the doors behind the formation of "Magic Kingdom Park" and you'll walk in Walt Disney's footsteps throughout significant areas which led to the creation and vision of the continual evolvement of the park. Many backstage areas are visited as well as the ever-popular "Utilidors", the tunnels that allow inner workings of the park. You'll receive a special lunch at Columbia Harbor House. This tour is approximately 5-hours in length.

    "Walt Disney: Marceline to Magic Kingdom" is a shorter, 3-hour tour of the significant events in Walt Disney's life which inspired Magic Kingdom Park and the attractions within. This is also a walking tour with inside looks through the design and operation of Magic Kingdom Park's popular attractions.

    May I also suggest the Backstage Magic tour which is a much more detailed one-of-a-kind VIP experience.

    Best wishes,
