At Walt Disney World, there are a number of exciting behind-the-scenes tours that give you exclusive access to areas of the park that are usually closed to guests. You’ll be treated like a VIP and be able to enjoy a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as you discover some of Disney’s best kept secrets. Transform your holiday into something unforgettable with one of these incredible Walt Disney World tours:
Disney’s Family Magic Tour:
This is one of the more affordable Walt Disney World tours. The fun filled adventure is perfect for families and will make your Disney experience even more special! The villainous Captain Hook has stolen items belonging to your favourite Disney characters, and Mickey needs your help to get them back. If you’re up for the challenge, get ready to embark on an interactive scavenger hunt that will take you across the Magic Kingdom in search of the stolen items. Answer questions and solve clues to find out where they might be, but don’t worry if you’re stuck, you’ll get some help along the way from a familiar face! One of the best parts of this great value tour is the opportunity to skip the queue and search for a clue on-board one of the park’s rides!
Park: The Magic Kingdom
This is the ultimate Walt Disney World tour for any dedicated Disney fan, where you’ll get to go behind-the-scenes and discover things you didn’t even know existed! For example, did you know that the Magic Kingdom is built above ground level to make room for secret underground tunnels used by the cast members? Well, in this 7-hour tour, you’ll be taken “backstage” to witness exactly how the magic is brought to life. Walk through the secret tunnels, visit all four parks and learn extraordinary inside knowledge from your expert tour guide. One of the highlights though, is the chance to visit the costume department, where you can see the seamstresses hard at work creating spectacular outfits for your favourite characters. Considering Mickey has over 150 different costumes, that’s a lot of work!
Price: $255 - $269
