Very disappointed in this tour. Learned very little. Nothing justifies the cost of the tour. The lunch at Wilderness Lodge was the highlight of the day. The most interesting stop was one of the laundry facilities.

This is a long tour with much technical behind-the-scenes information. I believe the minimum age is 16 which is about right. Anything younger and you'd have instant boredom. With the 7 hour tour, you get to visit each park and see various aspects of the...More

A true way to appreciate the real 'magic' that makes Disney. So many details missed until you are shown them. The backstage elements are great and the tour guides were really knowledgable with anecdotal information to supplement as we went around.

Lets start with the positive. Our tour guides were very sweet. I am certain they do not plan the tour, but show you around a pre-planned tour determined by Disney. Now for the tour itself... what a complete waste of $250/pp. There really was no...More
