If you’ve ever wondered how our Magic Kingdom chefs create the incredible food and beverage offerings throughout the park, then this new VIP tour is for you! Get ready to step behind the counter for this one-of-a-kind backstage tour that includes VIP tastings of our most popular menu items.
During the tour, you’ll discover how food memories are made as you taste your way through the kitchens of Magic Kingdom Park. After taking the tour myself, I personally LOVED getting to sample the Mickey-shaped cinnamon rolls and we even tried the Grey Stuff from Be Our Guest Restaurant – it was DEFINITELY delicious! Along the way, you’ll hear stories from some of our dedicated chefs and cast members, as well as your very own VIP Tour Guides, who all help bring our creative and delicious meals to life. From sharing the rich history of Disney Parks food to giving you an insider’s look at the creation of new menu items, our cast will immerse you in the culinary magic of Disney!
The tour also includes exclusive and unprecedented access to a few of our backstage kitchens and working areas that have never before been seen by guests. This behind-the-scenes look will allow you interact with the creative experts and experience first-hand everything that goes into the production of serving millions of guests each year.
And don’t forget to bring your appetite! Throughout the experience, there will be specially curated tastings of our most beloved snacks at Magic Kingdom Park, including savory and sweet items. You’ll even get a peek into the future and help create the next generation of Disney Parks food with a sampling of an item that’s still in development. How cool is that?
And remember, many of our menus and offerings change seasonally, so you never know what you might get to experience as we’re always looking for new ways to tell our culinary story. A number of exciting updates – including a new backstage experience – are now on the menu!
