[QUOTE=LittleMissMagic;1118271]The pros are that you get to see the “backstage” areas of Disney that you wouldn’t otherwise see. They take you backstage where they house the parade floats, and they also take you underground in the utilidors.
The cons for me were that most of the information we were told, any die-hard Disney fan would already know. The guide doesn’t really give you any information that you can’t find online or read in a book. If you really want to learn about how the Magic Kingdom operates, you might be better off watching Modern Marvels: Walt Disney World. This tour is for either the Disney newbie who is curious about how the World works or the Disney enthusiast who really wants to see the utilidors.
The other possible downside is that seeing everything backstage ruins the magic for you, and you can never see Disney in the same way. This happens to some people and is why others don’t have any interest in taking the tour. However, I’m assuming that since you eagerly signed up, this isn’t going to be a problem.
Lunch is provided at Columbia Harbour House. Being a get-your-money’s-worth girl, I intentionally ordered the most expensive thing on the menu (think it was a tuna or a chicken salad sandwich). You also get to keep your nametag and “key” to the kingdom - cool souvenir for a Disney-lover.[/QUOTE]
It sounds great, We are looking foward to it.
