There are many ways to “plus” your Walt Disney World vacation. We’ve covered a few different options to add more magic to your stay like After Hours events, staying at a monorail resort. The ultimate way to make your vacation a truly unique experience is with one of the resorts VIP Tours. It’s a common misconception that Disney’s VIP Tours are only available to the rich and famous, but in reality, are open to all guests. These tours began with the Disneyland Resort Ambassador program created by Walt Disney to give guests an upgraded experience. These separately ticketed tours provide guests with a dedicated Disney tour guide who will lead groups throughout the resort providing unparalleled access to attractions, characters, and more. I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy a couple of VIP Tours at Walt Disney World and can’t recommend them enough for guests wanting to experience the resort in a new and exciting way.

Walt Disney World VIP Tours

Private VIP Tours

Guests wishing to create their own itinerary to explore Walt Disney World can do so with a private VIP tour. Guests can provide their tour guide with a list of attractions and experiences that they’d like to do, and Disney VIP Tour Services will plan the most efficient and enjoyable way to get them done. Private VIP tours are available for up to 10 guests and you may pick your start time with a minimum duration of 7 hours.

Private tours begin with private vehicle pickup at your hotel. From there your tour guide will drive you to your desired locations. Guides then lead your group to your desired experiences giving priority access to attractions, reserved viewing areas for fireworks and parades, and more. You can visit one or multiple parks during your time. The VIP tour guides are some of the most knowledgeable and accommodating Cast Members at the resort and truly make the experience unforgettable. These guides will bend over backward to make your tour a success. They will grab your food while your group relaxes, or even push your stroller when your legs get tired. We’ve become fast friends with many of our tour guides and always look forward to seeing them in the parks.

Pricing for Private VIP Tours ranges from $425 to $750 per hour, per group, depending on the season. Valid park admission is required for each park that is included in the price of this tour. Parties larger than 10 Guests will require more than one VIP tour guide at the current rate. Please be aware that all party members(including infants) count toward the total number of guests in your group. A cancellation fee equal to 2 hours at the booked rate per tour will be charged if you do not provide at least 48-hour notice when canceling. Private tours can be booked by calling (407) 560-4033. Private tours can book up fast, so we recommend reserving your tour at 180 days prior to arrival.
