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  7492.9 #5 8:22PM
It was amazing getting to share it with you! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  932.5 #3 8:43PM
How cool!! I would love to do that! - txdisneymomma  87.8 #69 9:43PM
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  509.2 #11 10:18PM
I do have some more of the tour. I'll post some later! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  932.5 #3 4:23AM

Very fun! Great pics too!*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #41 6:05AM
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  921.3 #5 6:30AM
I wonder why they don't allow pics. Did they tell you why they don't? - mrsincredible  921.3 #5 6:43AM
Until late last year they didn't even allow Guests in the apartment. They were very careful to leave it the way Walt left it. His sandwich maker is even still sitting on the counter! It was very special to have an opportunity to see it, first hand. They had us leave our things on a coat rack by the door while cameras and cell phones went on the counter so THEY could take one photo of us with each. Disney is very protective of Walt's legacy! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  932.5 #3 6:55AM
That sounds amazing! I have always wanted to do a tour! So hopefully one day it will happen :) - lakerck  164.5 #49 9:50AM
