  • Guided Tour Changes

    I went on the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour about 10 days ago, and they said that the tour was going to change dramatically soon (by the end of March). They are adding Ipod's to the tour. I get the impression, that some of the tour will be in Walt's voice on the Ipod.

    Also we were told by our tour guide, Kristen, that they are about to add a Segway tour, where you are taken on those Segways into DCA before it opens in the morning and you do a tour about that park riding the Segways, it includes breakfast.

    It is modled after the "Around the World at Epcot" tour

    Yeah when I took it in september they tried using an Ipod as a test but it didn't work as well because it ran outta power lol. It was for the foreign people in the tour.

        Interesting! It'll be cool to see how they incorporate the technology... maybe historical sound clips?

          Adding the ipod's would be awesome! When I did the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour about a year ago, our tour guide also mentioned a rumor about a Segway tour in DCA, so at least the idea is still floating around. My tour guide also mentioned, just as a rumor though, that they were thinking about adding a nighttime tour where you're the last people to go on all the "scary" rides, such as HM and ToT, and I think a behind the scenes look at them too. However, I have no idea how concrete this information is, has anyone else heard anything similar?

            Our tour guide has been asked to be a guide on the new DCA Segway, and has already been trained on the units. I just can't remember when it was to start, I want to say later in the Spring, maybe even May.

            The Ipod's were slated to start very soon (maybe even already) she even said that we were one of the last tours slated for the traditional Walt's Footsteps.

                They actually already do this tour around Halloween time. Keep an eye open for it.

                        Regrettably this tour is no more, I believe it was called Myths and Legends. It didn't go out last Halloween season, but there has been talk of recreating and improving it. I've heard rave reviews about it from guests, though it was before my time at the Resort.

                        I believe the iPod updates to WIWF are slated to take place in May, but that's subject to change, as always. The guests will be given headsets and the Tour Guide will have an iPod (and a microphone!) that will be transmitted to the guests.

                        I'm not sure I want to ruin the surprises in store, but if you've taken the tour before, it's going to change in incredible ways. Stay tuned!

                            There was hints that the entire month of October may be much more Halloweenee. Apparently last October's attendance was way up and they are attributing it to a stepped up Halloween approach. The tour guide made references to what they are doing in Paris Disney as a model. Something about an incredible parade.
