    A Utility Coridor is an underground hallway to transport the four C's: Cast, Cash, Characters, and Crap. If you transport the C's underground it keeps them away from the guests and provides for better "show". Someone else will no doubt fill in the details.

    Oh yeah, it smells real bad too.

    I've done Dive Quest at Epcot. I'm not sure that you can all it a tour but you do get a little backstage info on the aquarium, and then you get to swim with the fishes and even a few sharks.

    Very fun, I would recomend it. You do have to be an open water certifed diver and its not cheep.

    I have to agree, I did the Segway tour a few years back and it was AWESOME! you also get a very rare segway pin at the end only available on the tour... yes its an 80$ pin but the tour is so much fun even if they only let you use the slow key.

    Its a two hour tour, first hour is how to ride and use the Segway safely, includes video and obsticle course. Then you literally ride all over the world showcase before its open. My favorite was zooming though the shops and alleys in Morroco and through the gardens in Japan.

    I'll second the Segway Epcot tour- it was a lot of fun. They basically pointed out the design elements of all the countries is WS and we rode the segways through all the different trails and stuff.

    Eh, you follow a guide around World Showcase before it opens, using some of the country's stuff as obstacle courses (the bridges in japan and china, zig-zagging through the pillars in Italy, etc) and all the while the guide gives out fun facts of the real countries and the epcot versions. it's fun, educational, AND entertaining!

    I did the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot. I liked it a lot for a small tour. Only takes an hour and it's only $12...just depends if you are into gardening or not
    I have about 90 pics posted on deepbluesea.smugmug.com with tour photo's

    I've done Backstage Magic and Yuletide Magic in the last few years, and highly recommend them (am doing Yuletide again this coming December). Both are done by Disney Institute staff.

    A few years back, did the World Showcase tour and really enjoyed that as well. I'm not sure if that's Disney Institute staff or not. That one made us realize we really wanted to spend more time just wandering World Showcase.

    Pizzapants, for the Segway tour, what was actually TALKED about on the tour, or was it just mostly riding around the park after the training?

    I did a behind the scenes tour of Haunted Mansion, only open to CM's though. It was AWESOME. Become a CM just so you can do this.

    Did the Keys to the Kingdom and I would give it a perfect 10! Just a great tour.

    I plan on the Steam Trains in November.

    That is what I went on, The Magic of Disney Steam Trains Tour. It's the only tour around an attraction and it isn't done by a Guest Relations Tour Guide, but a Magic Kingdom Train Conductor! That was nice since you really got the information from the person who knew the most about the Trains. On the tour you get to learn this history of the trains, go to roundhouse and see them all, ride around on the #1 train - Lillybelle and take photos with the train right in front of it, learn how the trains work with Disney's MaPo system (saftey), etc.

    I took the "Keys to the Kingdom" tour a few years back and "Backstage Magic" back in June. They were both great tours and I would recomend them both.

    KTTK is of course in the Magic Kingdom only and takes you into the famous Utilidors, which was the highlight for me.

    Backstage Magic started in Epcot, went to many other locations on the whole property that I never knew existed and ended up in the Magic Kingdom.

    I think I'd like to try the Steam Train tour next time.
