One if the amazing experiences during my DLR visit last month was the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour. The four of us had done this tour several years ago, but with the recent changes and addition of a visit to Walt's apartment, it was like a whole new tour! The top two photos are from Club 33. You still don't make it past the lobby, but they do allow for photo ops! The middle photos (of its a small world and DL's hub) show our tour guide, Esteban. It was clear that he loves his job! He told us stories that were not part of the script, but are shared among CMs. When he told us the story of when Walt died, he had to stop several times because he was so choked up it was hard to speak. The next day we even saw Esteban in the park with a friend on his day off! But, the highlight of the tour was the visit to Walt's apartment (bottom photos). Anyone who loves this park knows that Walt had a private apartment located over the Fire Station on Main Street. Since Walt died, the lamp in the window has been kept on in his honor. But, until now, Guests were not allowed inside. As you can see, the furnishings were chosen by Lillian. There was a kitchenette and bathroom straight out of the 60's! We weren't allowed to take photos, but the CMs do take a group photo for you. It was an amazing experience & I would recommend this tour to any of you!
Nancy and I have done many tours on both coasts. This is my favorite tour. And all that more special getting to share it with some friends. It was an amazing gift we'll never forget. Thank you all. - jacdanfan  5896.4 #8 11:22PM
How cool!! I would love to do that! - txdisneymomma  76.7 #68 12:43AM
When we went on the tour in 2012, we didn't go to Walt's apartment. That is so cool! Do you have more photos? I'd love to see them. - ally  503.8 #10 1:18AM
Thank you so much for sharing! I would really love to do this one day when we visit DL. - mmddgp  355.2 #18 5:12AM

that's amazing, how important it is to know deeply the thoughts of walt. I'm happy for you, this shows the love that can be felt for disney :)) - Hbrunelli  92.8 #61 8:47AM
Very cool...the pics are great - dxcmama  221.3 #30 9:03AM
Very fun! Great pics too!*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #34 9:05AM
That's amazing, Tiffany, thanks for sharing!! I hope to experience it when we go. Question for you DL regulars, is this something the hubs and I could do while the kids are left in their child care facility? Anyone have experience with leaving kids there? I'm always so nervous about leaving my kids with people I don't know, but this would be so special to do with just the two of us for our 10yr anniversary. - mrsincredible  732.6 #5 9:30AM
That sounds amazing! I have always wanted to do a tour! So hopefully one day it will happen :) - lakerck  164.5 #43 12:50PM
How amazing, that route is one thing would love to do! - ccmom  183.6 #38 1:44PM
Glad you guys had a great time! This was our first tour and we loved it! Wonderful pics! - Andrea84  601.1 #7 3:30PM
