California Adventure

Disney Park Tours – Beyond the Attractions

Disney Park tours are an amazing way to experience even more while on your family vacation.  Whether you are a Walt Disney history buff, enjoy behind the scenes access, or just want to experience something new, tours are a fun way to bring these to life.

In this week’s episode, I chat with my dad, Tom Wunder, about our 5 favorite tours….

  • Keys to the Kingdom Tour at Walt Disney World
  • Walk in Walt’s Footsteps at Disneyland Park
  • Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour at Walt Disney World
  • Grand Circle Tour learning about Walt’s love of trains at Disneyland.
  • VIP Tours at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Park

While Disney offers these and many other tours, there are over 100 other Enchanting Extras available to make your vacation experience even more magical.

I’ve added as many pics as I could, but please keep in mind that backstage and Walt’s apartment are off limits for general public pics.

Please enjoy my conversation with my dad.

Disney Dining for Foodies – and not so Foodies

Disney dining is such a huge part of the vacation experience, we felt it was necessary to give dining it’s own episode.  

This week, we invited Renee Burger, a trained chef as well as a Dream Designer with My Mickey Vacation Travel to discuss the elevated dining options at Walt Disney World® Resort.

Honestly, we could spend about 10 episodes on Disney dining, so today we are focusing on the “foodie” experiences…..those that would really speak to those that appreciate and have a fondness for the dining experience.

Renee brings a special perspective to the Disney dining experience as a professionally trained chef who also teaches the culinary arts to others.

In this episode we discuss the elevated experiences at Disney Springs, the resorts, and the parks.  We also spend time chatting about the ultimate foodie experience, the Epcot International Food and Wind Festival.

We hope you enjoy this episode, and please share your comments below about your favorite dining experience.
