I took the Keys to the Kingdom back stage tour. This is a five hour tour of the Magic Kingdom, which includes lunch. Wearing headsets, so you can hear the host and also so others who have not paid for the tour can not listen in. You get told about the history of Disney and things are pointed out that... More

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 parks. Some was more interesting than others but that's usually the way it is with... 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.

My girls since they were 5 years old never missed Backstage Disney! They are now age 9 and 8 and my teenagers always love the show! It is truly fun. The show is indeed for everyone! Can't go wrong to wait in a 30 minutes wait line! It's all worth it!

A wonderful experience to learn how the park works behind the scenes. This tour is designed to give a detailed background of things that most people just pass by. It helps someone understand what a showman and artist Walt and his imagineers truly are. If you have a passion to understand more about the work and the man this tour... More

When we were in Disney last year we wanted to take this trip but we didn't realize until later we were booked on the steam engine tour which was great so this year we definitely wanted to take this one. It was very interesting and neat to see what goes on behind the scenes. Both Julie and Brian were extremely... More

I went on the Backstage Disney tour with my 16 year old son. I went on the tour with my partner last year and enjoyed it enough to want to share it with my son this year. The minimum age for the tour is 16. (This requirement makes sense as the tour very quickly begins to pull back the curtains... More

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 behind the scenes, other than the fact that you entered from the "back side" of... More
