    I've loved the utilidors every time I've been. You get to see much more on some tours but then the same tour with a different leader and much less is seen :/ so very dependent on which tour and who is leading it I think.

    It *definitely* doesn't spoil any magic although we have seen partially dressed characters on the odd occasion :) hence the adults only nature of the tour.

    It was fascinating how like a little city it was and interesting for me to discover that it isn't actually "underground" rather it's on the ground floor and the Magic Kingdom was built over it :)

    I really liked it although I'd have dearly loved to just be able to wander around by myself for a week or so

    I think Keys to the Kingdom was the first tour Donna and I did. It is a great tour and I highly recommend it.

    It was the first tour we did as well. The guide we had was on his last day working there so put a lot of extra effort in.

    First and only tour so far for me too, and it was great. I’d recommend booking it in advance, they have limited numbers per tour. The only thing that shocked me was the “staff pin bin” – literally just a massive bin full of basic pins that the cast members can take for their lanyard! We saw the area where they keep the parade floats, and saw half of the Toy Story characters without heads!!

    Oh, and the ‘smells’ too – I’d always wondered why CLOSED popcorn stands still smell so good…

    Other interesting bits that are probably widely known but I rarely see mentioned – there is only one visible clock in MK. They don’t want you to know what time it is so you stay there all day without realising it! And you’re never more than 25 feet away from a bin (or something like that) to encourage everyone to keep the park tidy. It obviously works well.

    A great tour, ours included a stop at the Dole Whip place – how I missed that on the first few trips I’ll never know!!

    Edited to add: You get a free "keys to the kingdom tour" pin too, that you can only get by going on this tour :)

    yep! :D

    In fact all the tours got to design their own pin as I understand it a few years back, so they all have really interesting ones now. They always joke that they watch ebay for a few days later just in case the pins pop up

    We've also done the KTTK tour and thought the utilidors were fascinating.
    The guide even took us through a costume department down there, but I don't know if that's always part of the tour.
    I highly recommend it!
