    This was a nice tour, but it wasn’t what I expected, especially in terms of learning about Disney. I thought we would go into more than one theater to learn about the history. We only went into the New Amsterdam theater. It was a lot of standing in front of the locked theaters and learning about our guide’s experience on Broadway. Again, it was enjoyable, but not what I expected.

Loved this tour!

My 11 year old theater loving daughter and I did this tour. Very informative and fun. Our guide was smart and funny and entertained us with games the whole way around. Being able to walk on the Aladdin stage and try on costumes was best part for my theater junkie. Perfect morning!!

Our tour guide was Chris Triebel. He was very entertaining and knew what he was talking about. As for the tour, it was amazing seeing all the theatres and learning the history behind them. Broadway isn't open yet, but this tour is the next best thing.

This tour is fantastic.

The tour was great. Our tour guide Eloise was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. I highly recommend this tour. This tour was special because of the behind the scenes access. Five stars. Bravo!
