Family Magic Tour at Magic Kingdom
We did this tour last year and can really recommend it to families with children between 5 and 12 that enjoy Magic Kingdom.
The tour takes you on a one-of-a-kind interactive tour through Main St, Liberty Square, Tomorrowland and Fantasyland. During the 2 hours, you are taken through the park's themed lands in search of clues,rather like a treasure hunt.
The tour happens each day at10 a.m. and is approx $30 for adults and children plus your Magic Kingdom park admission.
We met at the building to the left of the courthouse and there was complimentary coffee and water. When we met our guide he told the children that we were going on a hunt for hidden Mickeys, then he was interrupted by a phone call from the Big Cheese himself, telling him that Capt. Hook's pirates were threatening to take over the Magic Kingdom and we had to help stop them. There followed over two hours of fun taking us through all the lands. At the end, we met Peter Pan and Wendy. There were only twelve in our group.
The guide then makes everyone take a broom or mop or polishing cloth because the park just isn't ready for the parade and so we will have to help. He then gets a call in the back and you can hear him talking. He comes out and tells us that he is very sorry, since we were so looking forward to cleaning, but he has to go out and assemble a team to take care of a bigger problem. Peter Pan has stolen Captain Hook's golden hook, and the angry pirate is threatening to change the parade into Captain Hook's Very Scary Pirate Parade if it wasn't returned.
The kids volunteer to be the team who helps him find it. Peter has left a map with nine clues. So we go out to the front of the building, introduce ourselves, tell where we are from and what our favourite character is, all get some pixie dust, throw it in the air with the
Pan yell, "Here we go!" and set out for the first place mentioned in the first clue.
This is at the Walt and Mickey statue. We then have to act out our favourite character before we can read the second clue!
Clue 2 takes us into Tomorrowland, near the Time Keeper.
Clue 3 was at the 3-ton granite ball in Tomorrowland.
Clue 4 we had to do all kinds of silly steps over to the Indy Speedway and into Cosmic Ray's. The kids have to hide down in front of Sonny Eclipse, pop up and scream "Hi Sonny!" and then run out.
Clue 5 gets us to the Wishing Well near the castle, where we all share our happy thoughts, and then we go to Clue #6 at the Cinderella Fountain.
Clue 7 is doing follow the leader to Adventureland. We had to sing Hakuna Matata to get to the Tikis and dance around to wake them up.
We passed Captain Hook and Smee at POC, shouted "Hook is a codfish!" until he came after us, and we warded him off by doing the Tick Tock crock motion with our arms.
Clue #8 was to gallop through Frontierland on a pretend horse, shouting howdy to folks and get to Liberty Square and find a lantern with Tink in a tree.
Clue 9 took us into the private glade (roped off) where we threw more Pixie Dust to call Peter and Wendy, who popped out from a path. Peter looks up to show us where he hid the hook, but it isn't there, and the children had to look for it.
We then got a photo opportunity with Peter and Wendy before going in through the Fastpass line to sit in the front row. We felt very important!
The tour finished with Peter and Wendy giving us Magical Moments Certificates with our family name and their autographs on them.
A great tour, I am so glad we did it.
