Oh my gosh!!

I totally forgot that we did the Pirates and Pals Fireworks tour many years ago although it may have been called something else!!


All of those tours sound amazing!! I find that the more we go to WDW, the more we are interested in these!!

I sure hope more people respond as I would love to get some more ideas!!

I've only done tours at DLR:

Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps
Halloween tour (I forget what it's called)

And I did Cruzin' through California Segway tour THREE times--loved it! I was so sad when it was discontinued.

We've done a few - I had to go through the Disney website to find them and even then, I know there will be others I've missed:
Behind the Seeds
Caring for Giants
Gardens of the World
Keys to the Kingdom
Magic Behind our Steam Trains (Mark only)
UnDISCOVERED Future World
Wilderness Back Trail Adventure
World Showcase: DestiNations Discovered
Yuletide Fantasy

We've also done some that are no longer offered:
Epcot Segway tour (two different ones)
I know there was another tour at Epcot we did a couple of years ago that we loved and they stopped it a few weeks later, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called

I did the Undiscovered Future World several years ago. The guide was great and it really helped me appreciate Epcot.

I am thinking about doing the Savor the Savanna tour in November. You say you wouldn't do it again, does this mean you don't think it's worth it? What is your opinion on it? Would it be better to just book dinner at Sanaa or Jiko and see the animals that way? Is Wild Africa Trek or Caring for the Giants better?

Oh my goodness!! We thought this tour was terrific!! I highly recommend it!! It is totally unique and you really do get to go out on the Savanna!! I am so grateful that we got to do it. I only meant that it was a one time deal for us.

I don't want to spoil it for you but if you would like some details, feel free to PM me!!

Seriously do it!! The parting gift alone is worth the price!!

At Walt Disney World, my family has done Behind the Seeds several times and Family Magic once (when both kids were around the target age). My husband and I did a World Showcase tour around 2000 (probably similar to the current DestiNations Discovered), and my husband did the Epcot Segway tour many years ago. My daughter and I did Lunch with an Imagineer in 2012.

At Disneyland, I have done A Walk in Waltís Footsteps twice (once with each kid).

My daughter will turn 16 next year, and has already announced we need to go back to WDW shortly thereafter so she (and the rest of us) can do Keys to the Kingdom.
