To say our family loves Disney World is an understatement. But for as many times as we’ve been to Walt Disney World, there are several experiences I haven’t done but would love to do one day. Part of the reason I haven’t done these experiences are lack of time and often the cost. It’s no secret that visiting WDW is quite expensive. It’s also a very large resort with so much to do and usually time is extremely limited as we are usually only there for a week. From the parks, Disney Springs and the many beautiful Disney resorts, the activities are endless. Even with the time and money restraints, hopefully one day I will be able to experience some key Disney dining adventures and wonderful tours that look absolutely fabulous. The first three on my list to do are the following:
Behind the Seeds Tour: at the “The Land” Pavilion in Epcot.
This is a walking tour of the greenhouses, hydroponics and fish farm you see while riding “Living with the Land” boat tour. This tour is fairly reasonably priced at $25.00 per person in addition to your park ticket, it seems they run about every 45 minutes between 10:30 and 4:30. This is one of the tours that I just haven’t taken the time to do yet. I’m so intrigued by the unique plantings and vertical growth designs that you see while on the boat tour. These greenhouses also provide food for some of the Disney restaurants. I would really enjoy this tour!
- Highway in the Sky Dine Around: This is a Disney style progressive dinner. The evening starts with appetizers at the Contemperary Resort. You then board the monorail and travel to the Polynesian Resort for more unique appetizers. Once finished at the Polynesian, the guests travel to the Grand Floridian for artisinal cheeses or charcuterie offerings as well as the main entree at Citricos. The evening finishes up back at the Contemporary for coffee and desserts as well as a private area to view the “Happily Ever After” fireworks show at Magic Kingdom.
Doesn’t this sound fun? Drinks are included in the evening but the pricetag is quite steep at $170 per person. One day I do hope to do this with my husband…one day…
3. Disney’s Yuletide Fantasy: I REALLY want to do this one… Christmas and Disney AND going backstage? Yes, please. This is a 3 1/2 hour tour of the behind the scenes Holiday decor and what it takes to get the park ready for a magical Christmas at Walt Disney World. The tour starts in Epcot where guests board a bus and travel to different warehouse locations where the massive array of Disney holiday decor is stored. The last stop is usually a place to get a tasty treat and the tour concludes with each guest receiving a special Yuletide Fantasy souvenier. This tour is $139.00 per person and each participant must be at least 12 years old.
If you’ve ever done any of these three events, please let me know how your experience was!
