Walk in Walt's Footsteps Tour

We are visiting in June and this tour is high on our list to do. I know I can book 30 days out and there are only 15 people per tour, which isn't a lot. There are 4 of us in our party. So I was wondering if anyone has ever called to booked and not been able to because it was filled. We are limited to 2 days that we can do this and I'm afraid there is a possibility won't get in. Thanks.

We are taking this tour on Sunday 2/24. I called the morning of 1/24 and got in without issue. There are only two of us though. I recommend calling first thing in the morning 30 days out from when you want to book. Good luck!

Thanks Crystal for your input. Definitely will call as soon as it opens 30 days out. Do you know time that is?

Enjoy your upcoming tour. Post your thoughts when you come back. Would love to hear all about it.

We did this tour back in November and I booked right when the window opened (for 2 of us) we had a friend who booked a few days later without problem but it was just her. The tour was full when we checked in. I have heard that since the addition of Walts apartment in the possible tour stops enrollment has been up so I would not risk it by waiting.

Yes we are using our points and staying at the VGC. This is our 5th trip to DLR and I didn't realize there was a Disneyland Vacation Planning Team. I will look into that, thanks!

The whole reason I want to take the tour is just to be in Walt's Apartment. I get giddy just thinking of it.

Thanks for your input. I definitely would not wait to book, but since there are such a few allowed I was concerned it would sell out nearly immediately. Especially since I need 4 spots.

Are you staying at one of the Disneyland Hotels? If so, the Disneyland Vacation Planning Team can book this for you. We have had them book tours for us with no problems (although we are only 2 people but we were able to get the Holiday Time Tour on Christmas Day through them).

I can respond to the allergy question.I have celiac and therefore a gluten allergy.

I took the Christmas tour. I could not eat any of the snacks offered along the way. I was given an alternate snack at the end. It was supposed to be ready when everyone else was snacking, but it wasn't. Not a big deal to me at all. But they will definitely work with you.

As for being worried about not making the tour, I wouldn't be TOO concerned. Yes the tour is limited to a small group, but there was 3 groups doing the exact same tour at the same time as us. So really there was close to 50 people hanging around waiting to go.

Loved, loved, loved the tour. Will be doing one every time we go now. Even my 5 & 6 year olds loved it. And their grandmas were in heaven.
