  • Adventures By Disney: Backstage Magic Tour - Blogs and Trip Reports

    The very first ABD: Backstage Magic tour took place a week and a half ago (April 22-27). I know some MiceChatters were interested in the tour and I thought a couple folks here even made reservations. Anyway, over 30 people were part of the inaugural tour and not surprisingly, several trip reports are now online--mostly in the guests' own blog sites or other message boards.

    Based on the blogs I've read, the online daily itinerary and description of the tour is pretty much followed to the letter. The main diversion from the itinerary (for this group at least) was a tour of Walt Disney's Barn in Griffith Park. Since the Carolwood Foundation's volunteers staff the Barn, it's only open on a few select days.

    The VIP tour portion of DL and DCA sound fairly standard...at least in VIP tour terms. A tour of Walt's Apartment would definitely be the highlight for me. Seeing the Indy ride vehicles up close backstage sounds pretty cool. Then visiting the Roundhouse and Circle D Ranch would probably overload my Disney geek-meter.

    If you're interested in reading more...grab a cup of coffee (as Al would say) and get comfortable. Here are the reports/blogs that I've found so far.

    Tracey and Scott's Trip Report - http://www.wileenet.com/DisneyTripRe...agic/index.htm
    A very detailed report with good photos. Note: the actual ABD tour started on April 22. They arrived in L.A. early and did a pre-tour DL visit as well.

    Barbara Nefer's Blog - http://barbnefer.blogspot.com/
    Another very detailed and lengthy report, although there are only a couple of photos so far. She posted that she had to pry the camera from her husband today to download their photos, so hopefully more photos will appear soon.

    StitchKingdom Blog - http://stitchkingdom.com/blog/ (still in progress)
    This tour member has quite a few photos. A close cousin or lookalike of Dan-tasmic's Stitch 2.0 makes an appearance. Note: like Tracey and Scott, this guy arrived in the L.A. area before the start of the ABD tour and did a lot of other backstage-like activities on his own, e.g. the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

    There's at least one more site/blog with a trip report, but I've lost the link. If I find it again, I'll post the link. Happy reading!

              I've been wanting to do this since I first heard about it. Thanks for aggregating a few reports for us!

              Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                      No need to rub it in.

                      (No, I'm not actually mad at you, but I really do wish I could enjoy the same sort of circumstances at the moment. )

                        Are you confusing Coheteboy with Dan-Tasmic!??

                        I have seen both of them at the same time, so I know they're two different people.
