Can someone tell me about Making of the Dream or Art of the Theme Show Tour?

Anyone been to Making of the Dream or Art of the Theme Show Tour? I'm trying very hard this cruise to not over-schedule, but at the same time my 80+ year old mom will be with us and this sounds like it might interest her.

We did Art of the Theme on our honeymoon and it was fascinating. My in-laws did it this year on the WBPC and also thought it was great. The guide will go into great detail about how the ship was designed and decorated, and I found it enhanced my experience of and appreciation for the ship herself. The tour is also adults only, so it's a nice break from the kids. If she's okay with a lot of walking, I say go for it!

Good point about the walking! She likes to take her time on stairs and she'd be mortified if she thought she was holding up the rest of the group.

My mom (79) and I did the Fantasy Art of the Theme tour this past August. I have knee troubles sometimes, but no issues. I think at one point we had the choice of elevator or stairs, but it was down, so not an issue.
We learned a lot, and if I were to cruise again, I'd take DH. Got to see inside Remy and Palo, too.

I did it on the fall Hawaii cruise. We had the option of elevator or stairs. Due to issues with my back I chose the elevator. I didn't feel like anyone was waiting for me to catch up. BTW- Dave Smith, the gentleman that writes the books on Disney, did the tour with my group.
