Discover the Magic Tour

The Discover the Magic tour is targeted for kids and anybody who is willing to relax and be silly with their kids. The three hour tour will remain entirely in publicly accessible parts of the park, offering no behind the scenes access, but will set the children on a quest to solve a mystery. Along the way they'll get some ice cream, meat plenty of characters, ride some rides, and do some playacting.

Access Information - Hide Section

  • Walking required: This tour is held entirely on foot and will require walking at least a couple miles.
Parenting Information - Hide Section
  • Age restrictions: There are no age restrictions for the tour and it is targeted for children as well as parents/adults looking to have fun with their children. The target age for the mystery parts of the tour are 4 to 9 so older children may find it boring.
  • Other issues: This tour includes a lot of character interactions but keep in mind that most of them are based on characters that happen to be in the park anyway. So the characters seen will vary from tour to tour and it would probably be best to not promise children getting to see any particular character.
