Topic of the Week: Things to Do What Disney tour(s) have you done? What did you like best about it & would you recommend it to others?

This a great question , we always want to do one and can never decide which , thanks for asking:) - tracsant  1478.4 #2 4:39AM
Haven't done any tours yet unfortunately. Tiffany, you are compiling so much info on these "topics" I predict you're going to have a fabulous vacation in 50 days! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 4:53AM
Wife and I did the keys to the kingdom tour in 2007. It was Fantastic!!! However it is my understanding the tour no longer goes in the utilidors, but I would check into that. Going into the utilidors was the best part of the tour!!! - toogrumpy  141.8 #60 5:11AM
That would be a shame if they don't go in the utilidor anymore. We did that tour as well and enjoyed seeing it. It was like a maze down there. Very interesting! - goofygal  11004.0 #7 6:11AM
Oh no. The Utilidor was so cool! - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 6:11AM
Don't know if it qualifies, but we did The Pirates and Pals Firework Voyage in September of 2010.  It was WELL worth the $$ and time.  It was so magical and far beyond what we expected.  I would love to do it again in the future and highly recommend that everyone do it!! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 5:12AM
I second this!! We LOVED Pirates and Pals!! I think I was more excited about the "mystery" guest at the end than Jonah!! Haha - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 5:56AM
We've done "Walk in Walt's Footsteps" here at DL. Also "Keys to the Kingdom" st WDW. Basically the same tour, history of the park, window signage, lunch, souvenir pin. Both great tours and value. Also did 7 hour "Backstage Magic" and the Segway Tour at Epcot. I would recommend Keys tour at WDW as best value. - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 5:41AM
The Segwey tour was really fun. Because we took the first tour of the day, we were the only ones - so the guide took us all over the plac, including inside some of the stores in the World Showcase. It was fun going up and down the aisles looking at stuff. - goofygal  11004.0 #7 5:53AM
The new Segway tour at Epcot, Keep Moving Forward, sounds really good too! http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/08/keep-moving-forward-epcot-segway-tour-breakfast-debuts-september-17/?CMP=SOC-WDWFY12Q2FBDM0346 - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 4:14PM
Well I've only done one tour but we've done it twice. It's the behind the seeds tour. It's really fun getting to see all the plants up close and even some that you don't even see during the land ride, it's about 45 minutes to a hour and on the tour you get to release ladybugs (sometimes its just the little kids sometimes it's the whole group), feed the fish and sample cucumbers that they grew - nodell111  166.4 #54 6:00AM
It was announced recently that they are going to add something new to the Walk in Walt's Footsteps Tour at DL. Starting Sep 9th the tour will include a visit to Walt's apartment above the firehouse. WOW! - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 6:15AM
Wow, that is really cool! Maybe I'll have to do this tour again on my next visit! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 4:12PM
I have done A Walk in Walt's Footsteps at DL, Behind the Seeds twice, and Backstage Magic. The photos above are from A Walk in Walt's Footsteps in 2005 (that's the lobby of Club 33 in the top left). I would recommend them all, but especially Backstage Magic! The laundry facilities were A-mazing (no, really), we got to see the Utilidors & Christmas warehouse, and my favorite part was visiting the maintenance shops (since that's the group I work with at home). Backstage Magic is the ultimate! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 4:08PM
Oh yeah! I forgot about the Christmas warehouse. And the costume dept! How I would love someone to make my clothes! - goofygal  11004.0 #7 8:55PM
We went on one at DL and we got to go in the lobby of Club 33.that in itself was worth it! - ally  509.0 #17 5:25PM
I've done A Walk in Walt's Footsteps, and Halloween Haunts in DL and Backstage Magic in DW. All were great tours! - Sandy  245.8 #1403 6:29PM
Haven't done any tours yet:-( One of these days hopefully! All of the tours that everyone described all sound fantastic...thank u for this post! - mickeynme  177.5 #52 7:38PM
We've done a few but hands down our favorite was the Segway tour @ Wilderness Lodge, Ya just gotta try it !! - Nacman  156.4 #58 9:02PM
It actually starts @ wilderness camp grounds - Nacman  156.4 #58 9:06PM
