What’s a fun Walt Disney World tour option that won’t break the bank or eat up an entire day?
There are some really great tour options that don’t receive a lot of fanfare in Disney circles. Although there are some really amazing, high dollar tours that may tempt the pocketbook there are also more budget friendly options as well. These tours can be a great way to get some behind the scenes insight, make amazing trip memories and still have you back in time for your Space Mountain FastPass+ and dinner at the Crystal Palace. Two stand outs for me are the “Behind the Seeds” tour at Epcot and the “Caring for Giants” experience at Animal Kingdom.
If you are a fan of Epcot’s “Living with the Land” attraction then the “Behind the Seeds” tour is a must do for you and your family. Great for kids of all ages, this modestly priced ($25 pp), hour long tour will take you behind the scenes of the amazing agriculture of WDW. You will visit greenhouses & fish farms, release plant protecting ladybugs, see crops from all over the world, learn the latest growing techniques and take home a handout for growing your own garden. Strap on your walking shoes, there is a lot of walking throughout your 60 minute tour, but it’s an experience you won’t forget. More info HERE
“Caring for Giants” at Animal Kingdom is another budget friendly family tour offered. Guests must be at least 4 years of age or older to participate and the cost is $30 per person. On this guided adventure you will meet animal specialists who care for the African elephant herds of Animal Kingdom each day. You will also have a great vantage point of these beautiful, gentle giants from just 80-100 feet away. This is an hour long tour full of beauty, conservation education and wildlife preservation and will be something your family talks about for years to come. More info HERE
