The Official WDW Tours Thread

WARNING: Some secrets of WDW that might ruin the magic of Disney might be revealed in some of this thread. Please proceed with caution!


In my VMKF's WDW Nerd thread, many of you seem interested in tours, so I thought I would make an official thread where we can all talk about the different tours that WDW offers/offered.

To kick this off I'm going to start with the Undiscovered Future World Tour!

This tour is around the $50-75 range is for those who are 16+. This tour usually lasts for around 4 hours but at times might go over those 4 hours depending on various things. It talks about the history of EPCOT, unknown facts about Walt Disney and his legacy, unknown facts about EPCOT, behinds the scenes of Guest Relations and Innoventions, The Seas With Nemo and Friends, going on SOARIN with practically no wait, behind the scenes of Universe of Energy where you can touch audio-animatronics, behinds the scenes of Mission: Space in their VIP lounge, and behind the scenes of other areas which I have already sworn not to tell and stuff. Also included was a special pin you can only get by going on this tour. I must say I have been on many tours and this is the only one I have repeated more than once, and actually 3 times. If there is one tour I recommend you doing even if you don't like EPCOT, I highly recommend this tour.


The next tour I'll be talking about is The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour. Until then.

That sounds like a really fun one. My mom and I are really set on doing a tour next trip (we've never done a tour before), and this one looks like a really good one. I told my mom about it, and she went, "Ooh, write that one down!"

I've also never been on a tour and that one sounds like the one I'd want to do

I love seeing the Behind the Seeds tour when I'm on the land haha

As promised here is my thoughts and experience with the Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour:

We actually did this one for my dad and it cost us about $40 (he loves trains a bit to much -_- xD lol). The tour began 30 minutes before they even let those who had breakfast reservations into the park. We were actually able to get pictures of Main Street with hardly no one but a manager or 2 there. From there we took one of the trains out towards the back where they keep the trains stored as well as the monorails. They showed as an up close view of the trains, where we even got to go up to where the engineer and fire master where (fire master keeps the wood burning at certain temperature and makes sure it doesn't get to hot). From there we headed on one of the train's going back into the Magic Kingdom, and were told about some history behind Walt and his love for trains. After the tour concluded we got a special pin as well and where done with the tour officialy.

Phew. The Keys to the Kingdom Tour? That is a tour I've been asked many people about. Since it was asked, my next tour report will be on officialy now: The Keys to the Kingdom Tour. I have been on it, and will tell all when I see you guys have talked more about these tours, and will talk within the week about it hopefully.

Really excited to hear about this tour. Again, I haven't been on any tours in Disney and I think it'd be so interesting to do one.

I went on a tour a couple years ago, but I don't recall the name. It started at the American Pavillion, where you are able to see the show behind the scenes. Then we went to Wilderness Lodge and ate lunch at Whispering Canyon. Next we went to a building near Magic Kingdom, where we saw staff members refurbishing ride cars. The building with the holiday decorations was also in the same lot, but we weren't allowed to go in. After that we went in the utilidor (tunnels underneath Magic Kingdom), which was really interesting. Then we went to Hollywood Studios, where we went to the building where they sew and design costumes for the characters(the one you see on the backlot tour). After this you are taken backstage at Tower of Terror and the tour pretty much ended there. You also get a free pin as well. I don't recall the name or the price, but it was definitely worth the money. You learn a great deal about the parks.

The tour that you had just described sounds like the Backstage Magic Tour if I am correct Etna.

My parents and I had been discussing Keys to the Kingdom for YEARS, but naturally there's the age limit of 16. This meant that as soon as I turned 16 in July, we did the tour that August - it was just brilliant. I was constantly in awe about everything that was said, right from the evacuation routes, to the parade technology, and backstage areas. Fantastic day.

I agree with you. The Keys to the Kingdom tour is simply phenomenal. But it doesn't quite measure up to the cheaper and (for me) more exciting Marceline to Magic Kingdom tour. At least now a days xD

Anyone care to choose which tour they want me to talk about next?
