Ooo! Thanks for the info!

And so sorry about your Dad.

It's now official : the tour will be offered until the end of 2013!

I'll call them to make my reservation later this month then!

Can someone give details on this tour (like time frames?)

This one-day guided adventure begins at 8:30 a.m., when you'll depart Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. From there, you'll embark on a tour of the following sites:

The Hollywood & Highland Center or Grauman's Chinese Theater (based on tour date)
Visit the Dolby® TheatreSM at the Hollywood & Highland Center (home of the Academy Awards®), OR Grauman's Chinese Theatre, best known for its extensive collection of celebrity footprints and handprints. Both are located on vibrant Hollywood Boulevard.

Hollywood's Famed Sunset Strip
Catch a glimpse of such famous spots as Chateau Marmont and Whisky a Go Go.

Beverly Hills' Famed Rodeo Drive
See Beverly Hills' world-famous shopping destination, known for its haute couture boutiques.

Farmers Market & The Grove
Immerse yourself in the original Farmers Market at Third & Fairfax where you'll enjoy great shopping and an amazing array of restaurants – all in an authentic atmosphere which offers family fun, and frequent star spotting! And just a short trolley ride away is the fabulous open-air shopping center, The Grove.

The Walt Disney Studios
Enjoy an exclusive tour of The Walt Disney Studios — which is both a working studio AND the headquarters of The Walt Disney Company — followed by a special reception in Legends Plaza, where Disney's many gifted animators, Imagineers, songwriters, actors and business leaders have been honored. This is truly an exclusive experience that's only available to the public on the rarest of occasions!

Your tour returns to Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at approximately 7:00 p.m.


My husband seems to think that there is a lot of driving and maybe not a lot to see and do. Can anyone comments?

It's LA....there's always driving.

The Sunset Strip and Beverly Hills are actually just areas you will pass through on the way to the Farmers Market. During this period, our bus driver took over the microphone and gave a history filled tour of the area.

I saw the information on the main page of wdwinfo!

I suppose it means that the tour will be offered until the end of 2013, but the actual dates will be out only a few months at a time...

Just to let you know that we called last Friday and we were able to book our tour for October 2012. We were told by the cast member that all dates until Fall 2013 are now out for reservation!

My DH called today and booked us on a trip in mid-March 2013.

I am looking forward to reading more details on this.
