I did this tour back in 2008.
I have a review on it somewhere on MB. I will go search for it.
My main disappointment in the tour was that for Disney dorks like us, the information they shared was not new. I knew everything they told me in the first half of the tour about Walt Disney and the design behind Magic Kingdom in comparison to Disneyland (such as the story of the cowboy in Tomorrowland at DL - reason for the Utilidors, significance of the names on the Main Street Windows, central hub in front of Cinderella’s Castle, etc.).
The cool part of the tour for me were the behind-the-scenes parts. I had been backstage at MK before with the marching band, but they took us to where the parade floats were stored and showed us the testing and what they were working on. They also took us “underground” to the utilidors, which I had never seen before. That was my favorite part.
Now, a lot of people don’t like seeing the utilidors because it ruins the magic for them. I appreciated seeing how the park worked, and it didn’t ruin any magic for me, but enhanced it. So beware if you don’t like knowing that there is a man inside Goofy or that Cinderella isn’t really a platinum blonde. :laugh:
Here’s a recap from my June 2008 TR:
