Tours Available at Disneyland
Tours Available at Disneyland
At this time there are four tours available at Disneyland year round and two special holiday tours. I’ve never been on any of them and truly look forward to when I do. Still, I suggest anyone who can afford the tour do one if they can. It will add to the fun and everyone I’ve ever talked to that has gone on any of the tours has loved them.
I am most interested in the A Walk in Walt’s Footsteps and Cultivating the Magic tours! I am planning on going on them sometime in the next year.
Here is a list of all the tours they have at Disneyland (there are no tours for DCA except for fourth grade California History classes).
1. A Walk in Walt’s Footsteps
2. Welcome to the Disneyland Resort
3. Discover the Magic
4. Cultivating the Magic
You can also get a VIP Tour Guide that will show you around for a select amount of time. They will customize the tour to your ride interests and get you on a selected number of rides of your choice without a wait while telling you the history and interesting facts of the park.
