    Is there a tour on WDW property that you would love to do? A tour that at the moment doesn't exist.

    Maybe it's a behind the scenes tour of some sort, or a tour of the resorts, or maybe a look at the hidden areas/rooms of the castle.

    What would you like to learn about?

    oooo now that IS a good one

    I'd love to see the technology behind all the parks. The computers, the ride tech., the monorail stuff, the parade technology as well as their own smartcity phone exchange stuff and so on I believe at one time, backstage magic showed people the parade from behind the scenes but the last few times we've done it, they brought us back onstage for the parade (booooo).

    So I'd like a high tech tour please

    I'd love a complete tour of all the kitchens of WDW. I know there are main kitchens, then there are individual restaurant kitchens. I'd love a tour of them all!

    We saw some behind the scenes of Mickey's Jammin Jungle Parade the time we were on Mickey's float. Interesting

    I'd like a tour backstage of the animal enclosures - all of them.
    Would like a tour of all of the resorts too as we never get to see much of them staying offsite - grounds/rooms/restaurants etc

    To be honest, I like keeping the magic for all of it!

    Awesome question!

    As a city planner, I think I'd like to visit the Reedy Creek offices and see original plats and surveys of the property. I'm totally interested in the infrastructure and layout of the whole property. I'd also like to see Walt's concepts versus what was actually built.

    I think they've gotten way off track from what Walt originally envisioned (in my opinion). If you view old models of Epcot, or watch Walt's special on Epcot, you'll see a total departure. The newest unveiling of the million dollar mansions being sold on the property, for example, I think would send Walt rolling in his grave! Also I think this is a gross waste of property, unless Disney is leasing the land, where homeowners would only own the home but Disney would retain the land (like a mobile home park or a condo). Why would Disney sell property? I don't particularly understand Celebration, either, although it's been touted as a much respected "traditional neighborhood development".

    Wow. I got off on a tangent...

    Instead of a tour I would like to do a sleepover in one of the parks, maybe a sleepover on Tom Sawyers Island or in one of the pavillions at the world showcase. Of course it have to include a bunch of friends and cold beverages.

    I like Keith's idea of a high tech tour!

    But, of course I would!


    And +1 on Gwennies comments about the new development!
