If you have done a backstage tour, which one did you do, did you enjoy it and how long was it?
I have to bear in mind that I can't walk for hours on end, stairs, steep slopes and uneven or narrow walkways are all a problem.
The only one that we have done was the Keys to the Kingdom Tour at the MK a few years ago which we really enjoyed.
From memory it lasted around 4 hours or so at the end of which was lunch laid on at one of the restaurants in Liberty Square.
There is a bit of walking involved, but no more really than if you were to do your normal thing at the park. They do frequently stop for a rest along the way where things are explained to you.
Again from memory, the only steps involved was when we went out through a secret door at the back of one of the shops along Main Street to access the "behind the scenes" area and entrance to the utilidors.
I`m sure that you and Chris would enjoy the experience and you would be able to cope with it ok Wendy.
I think I've done them all, unless they've added more since I last looked.Originally Posted by Wendy, post: 301030
For brilliant value, the keys to the kingdom tour is brilliant. It's about half a day and is a walking tour but I should say, they walked pretty fast. Indeed a few members of our group had trouble keeping up. We saw a load of things at the magic kingdom as well as the utilidors etc.
My favourite though has to be backstage magic.
It's an all day tour including most of the parks and some of the resorts as well. You get to see a lot more, lunch is included and you're driven around in a disney coach which saves walking everywhere
Ive done keys to the kingdom and although i really loved it my mum found it really hard work. i dont recall us sitting down at all apart from at lunch and she really struggled. near the end of the tour they put a video on about when the park was being built but we all had to stand for it, it was a killer - personally wendy id look into another one if i were you, although it sounds like it depends on the cm you get doing it its not a risk i think you should take
We did the Behind the Seeds tour at The Land in Epcot Wendy. It is a one hour walking tour which was definitely long enough for me. It was a very informative walk through the area with plants, fish and alligators. We enjoyed it a lot. It is $18 each and although we booked well in advance, you can sign up on the day in the Land Pavilion just before the entrance to Soarin'
