Fortunately there is! D23 hold several events at the Studios open to all members throughout the year. They have "50 and Fabulous" screenings of 50th-anniversary films for $5 (the screenings simply take place in the Studio theater but do not tour the Studio), or "D23 Day at the Walt Disney Studios," which is $60 and has a two-hour tour. I would imagine that D23 Day is very similar (if not shorter) than the tour we had on Lights, Camera, Magic.
Info about 2013's D23 events: http://d23.disney.go.com/events/

Adventures by Disney also hosts "Backstage Magic," which is a very, very expanded version of the tour I experienced. It's 6 days, 5 nights, and includes trips to the El Capitan Theater, Jim Henson Studios, Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Imagineering (!), and Disneyland. The price is a bit meaty at around $3,000 per person. More info: http://www.adventuresbydisney.com/me...ornia_Trip.pdf

My guesses for why Lights, Camera, Magic is being discontinued is either that not enough people are booking it, or lots of people are booking it instead of the more expensive Backstage Magic. For us, we also wanted more time to spend in Disneyland being our first trip, so pair that with Backstage Magic being so pricey... and LCM's $200 option was a no-brainer. And unfortunately that might have been its fall.
