Undercover Disney

We have taken the “Keys to the Kingdom”  tour at the Magic Kingdom which was very cool.  Doing some research today, Disney has a tour that is even BETTER than that one.  The tour covers three parks; Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios.  From the Walt Disney World website:

Discover some of the secrets behind the magic of Walt Disney World Resort! Get an in-depth look at the creative and technical operations used behind the scenes to bring innovative special effects, world-class entertainment and elaborate attractions to life.

At Epcot, we’ll reveal some of the exquisite details that make The American Adventure one of our most popular attractions. You’ll see Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom theme park in a whole new light after your guide leads you through a hidden world—the legendary underground “Utilidor” tunnel system.

From artistic accents to eye-catching designs, nearly everything that surrounds you at Walt Disney World Resort is created and maintained by the artisans of Central Shops whose masterpieces transport you to Fantasyland and beyond. Take a break with a family-style lunch at the Whispering Canyon Café inside Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Then, see how horticulture and landscape design play a starring role in creating an endless variety of uniquely themed environments at the Walt Disney World Nursery & Tree Farm.

Head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park and see how Walt Disney Imagineers combined cutting-edge design with breakthrough technology to create the thrilling Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Here, as in every corner of Walt Disney World Resort, wardrobe is an integral part of the magic, so you’ll learn how the Creative Costuming team outfits the performers in Disney parades and shows. Finally, wrap up a most wonderful day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park with an up-close look at Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade.

The tour covers everything you ever wanted to know about Walt Disney World.  I’m especially intrigued by the visit to the Nursery & Tree Farm and Creative Costuming.  It’s a bit pricey at $229 per person, but you are getting a bang for your buck.  It’s going on my list!

Has anyone does this your?  Would love your feedback!

    I have done this tour and it is pretty amazing! It takes about 7 hours of your day and there is a lot of walking, but it was worth every penny. There were so many great parts – The American Adventure, Creative Costuming, the Utilidors, lunch at Whispering Canyon, and so much more.

    I think you mean the keys to the kingdom tour is the one you have taken, the backstage magic tour is the one where you visit three of the parks

  3. Sounds like fun; albeit pricey. 😉
