Disney VIP ToursThis week Disney have introduced two new VIP Tour Experiences at Walt Disney World that are aimed at offering guests a line free passage to attractions that suite their family’s preferences.
As Disney step up their program of introducing special ‘hard ticket events’ and VIP experiences, they appear to be looking after everyone by giving free Fastpass+ services to regular park guests, but also offering pricey, yet realistic upgrades to those that have the means to pay a chunk extra.
The VIP Tour formula seems to suit everyone, by not penalising regular park guests.
In the past, the only real way to tour the parks by privileged access was by the private VIP Tours, which were charged by the hour and swiftly racked up huge costs for groups.
Perhaps the stories of certain guests abusing the old Guest Assistance Card have prompted Disney to devise a more affordable route for families to tour the parks without line waits, but for now, even though we aren’t wealthy enough to test this new service out, we think that it is a step in the right direction for Disney.

The Ultimate Day of Thrills Details

One VIP Tour is named “The Ultimate Day of Thrills‘ and pretty much offers exactly that!
Guests armed with regular park admission can book the ‘Ultimate Day of Thrills’ experience in advance for an adventurous sum of $299 per person.
For that additional charge, guests can enjoy privileged access to the fastest and most adventurous rides in the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
The 7 hour tour does not take guests to Epcot, so Test Track will have to be savoured on another day!
With table service lunch provided, and an expert guide alongside, with courtesy backstage transport between the parks, guests can enjoy a seamless day of thrills in the parks.

The Ultimate Day For Young Families Details

Again, the price per person is $299 (also a regular park pass is required) and this provides 7 hours of privileged park access without line waits, table service lunch and back stage transportation between parks.
