If you are a true Disneyland fan, taking a Disneyland tour should definitely be on your Disney Bucket List! Most guests aren’t aware that tours of the park even exist. As of right now, there are 4 tours offered at Disneyland, though some are seasonal. Let’s take a look at these tours and ways you can go behind the scenes at Disneyland!
Walk in Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps
The Walk in Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps tour is the only tour being offered right now at Disneyland park. This tour gives guests a historical look at the life and achievements of Walt Disney and an opportunity to learn what inspired him to create Disneyland. It lasts roughly 3.5 hours and includes a catered lunch, collectible pin, tour button, and a visit to Walt Disney’s apartment above the Main Street Firehouse.
Your guide might also take you on some attractions. When I took the tour, we got to experience 3 attractions in the park. The tour of Walt’s apartment is what makes this tour all the more worth it in my opinion! The guides offer to take photos of you in the apartment to capture the memory. As of Feb 20, 2020, this tour cost $105 per person plus tax.
The Grand Circle Tour
The Grand Circle Tour is not operating right now but is scheduled to return Spring 2020. During this tour, guests will discover Walt Disney’s passion for trains, and learn about how trains impacted his dreams-from animation to theme parks. This is a 2-hour tour and offers an exclusive donut, coffee and cocoa reception, limited edition Lilly Belle Ticket, tour credential, and exclusive Disneyland Railroad map. Guests get to ride in the special Lilly Belle train car, which is named after Walt’s wife, Lillian. This tour is a bucket-list must if you are a Disney and/or train fan! Pricing is not available for this tour right now.
