“Undiscovered Future World Tour -- not my favorite WDW tour”

The UnDISCOVERed Future World
Ranked #43 of 105 Tours in Orlando
Attraction details
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a 4+ hour, 5 mile walking tour of public and behind the scene areas of EPCOT Future World. Disney Visa card holders receive a 20% discount on the price of the tour. Although EPCOT generally does not open until 9:00 most days, tour guests may enter the park early through the far left turnstiles at the main EPCOT entrance--your name will be on a list of people allowed to enter the park early that day so you may check in at Guest Relations INSIDE the park near Spaceship Earth 15 minutes prior to the tour (8:45).

This tour spends a lot of time standing in front of various EPCOT attractions, listening to a tour guide narrate details about the development and execution of the attractions. Some of the behind-the-scene areas of the park you will visit include: the VIP lounge at The Living Seas, the HP Lounge at Mission Space, the garage at Test Track and the Park laundry and marina areas.

If you enjoy Soarin', you will be pleased to be moved to the front of the queue for front row seats on this popular ride--better than a FastPass. Guests who prefer to pass on the ride, wait in a behind the scenes area. The tour ends in China where you will receive a collectible pin and be told your name is on the list for the VIP Illumniations viewing area in Italy later the same day.

If you have been on any of the other behind the scenes tours that include EPCOT (like the Segway or Backstage tours, or the holiday and garden tours), most of this tour will be redundant. Due to the amount of walking and standing, you want to wear comfortable walking shoes (some walking will be on uneven dirt paths) and know you will be spending hours on your feet. Midway through the tour you will have a rest break (at The Land), but the tour may be taxing for young children or others who can not walk and stand for long periods.

This 4-hour tour of Epcot's Future World includes visits to private areas at The Seas and Mission:Space, along with backstage visits at Imagination, Universe of Energy and the wardrobe, shops and barge staging areas for Illuminations. A trip into the pyramids of the Imagination pavillion gives you a rare chance to view the park from an area no longer open to the public. You will also get to see how all the 3-D glasses used at Disney World are cleaned and sanitized daily.

This tour also includes a ride on Soarin', where you don't have to stand in line OR have a FastPass. Participants of this tour are also invited to view Illuminations later that evening from a special locaton within World Showcase. Guests who take the tour will also receive a limited edition pin and our group was offered a 20% discount for lunch at the Nine Dragons Restaurant in World Showcase.

This tour provides lots of great information about Epcot. Our tour guide, Harvey was very friendly,and quite informative. Although some of the information he provided was a little more myth and legend than factual. I recommend this tour for Epcot fans (like myself) who want to see more of the magic.
