Did the KttK tour with Buzz this month so you can see what he posted earlier in this thread.
Last Sept I did the Magic Behind the Steam Trains Tour. This was an excellent experience. This is a very early tour so you may have to take a taxi to the Contemporary Resort and walk over the Magic Kingdom to get there by the 7:45am gathering time.
The neat part about this tour is you’re the very first people into the park for the day (even before dining entrance opens). Incorporated into the tour is a lot of history about Walt and of course the four steam locomotives themselves. You get lots of neat facts and this is a fairly interactive tour. Some guests get to make certain hand signals, flip the track switches and make the “All… board…” calls. You get a backstage tour of the train barn and get to ride the train to the front to greet the first guests of the day at the train station.
This tour also gives you a commemorative pin you can only get by taking the tour. This is all in all a great tour. I do have a love of trains and obviously a passion for Disney, so that may play into it, but I think any Disney lover would gain some new knowledge about Walt that they’d appreciate even without a love for trains. Happy Touring! :mickey:
Also, don’t forget if you have a Disney Visa Rewards card, Annual Pass or are a DVC member you may be eligable for tour discouts. (The Disney Visa card seems to have the best discount about about 20% compared to 10% for the AP & DVC.)
