Disney Private VIP Tours

Are Disney World’s VIP Tour Services Worth the Cost? 

Disney VIP tour sharing

In 1965, Walt Disney started something called the Disneyland Resort Ambassador Program. The idea was to personalize Disneyland’s in-park experience and make a trip to the park as truly memorable as possible. This program at California’s Disneyland served as a forerunner to Walt Disney World’s VIP Tour Services, a division of Disney which offers exclusive in-park experiences with a dedicated tour guide. These experiences are pricey, but they do give you special treatment, expedited services, and a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what makes Disney World so magical.

With that said, let’s first discuss the benefits of Disney Private VIP Tours and why they are considered the crème de la crème of Disney World experiences. Then we will examine how much Private VIP Tours cost and ways you can make VIP Tours more affordable. We will also give you a breakdown of the 4 other VIP Tours that Disney currently offers so as to help you decide if one of these may be a better fit for your family vacation.

And finally, once you decide that Disney VIP Tours are something you wish to participate in, then it’s time to contact the The Vacationeer (https://thevacationeer.com/private-vip-tours) to make your arrangements.

So let’s get started!

What are Disney World’s Private VIP Tours?

Cost of Disney Private VIP Tours

Disney VIP Tour Services offers several tours that are priced on a per person basis. These include The Ultimate Day of Thrills VIP Tour, Ultimate Disney Classics VIP Tour, Ultimate Nights of Adventure VIP Tours), and the Taste of Magic Kingdom Park VIP Tour. We will discuss these tours later.

Disney’s Private VIP Tours, on the other hand, are not priced on a per person basis. Instead, the cost of Private VIP Tours are based on an hourly rate for a group of up to 10 people.

Private VIP Tours Details

Here are some details of Private VIP Tours:

  • Depending on the season, tours will cost is between $425 and $750 per hour, per group (not per person)
  • A maximum allowance of 10 guests per Private VIP Tour
  • A minimum of 7 continuous hours is required per day
  • Valid admission is required for each theme park (not included as part of tour cost)
  • VIP Tour Services allows you to book up to 180 in advance (recommended)

While Disney’s Private VIP Tours are the ultimate way to spoil yourself at Disney World, they’re also an easy way to spend cash.

Cost-Effective: Share a Private Disney VIP Tour w/ Friends and Family

As we mentioned, Disney allows your group to include up to 10 guests. This is an important detail because the 10 guest allowance opens up a lot of possibilities. By sharing Disney VIP Tours with other interested couples and families, you could effectively reduce a $3000 or $5250 overall expense down to as low as $300-$525 per person.

Sounding good! But how do you go about forming a group of up to 10 people?

For safety concerns, Disney doesn’t allow Disney travel agencies  (or any other organization) to match you up with random people to form a group of 10. In this day-in-age, these types of policies makes sense because you never know who you will be matched up with!

That said, you can still form your own group – comprised of friends and family members – to reduce the cost per person.  So ask your friends, your aunt, your nephew, your favorite neighbor or co-worker. Who knows – they may just love the idea of taking a Private Disney VIP Tour with you…and saving money in the process! Even if you don’t come up with a full 10 people, you will still save a significant amount of money if you just add a few more friends and family members to your Private VIP Tour.
