Disney describes a VIP Tour as a completely customizable and efficient way for groups of up to 10 Guests to enjoy a day at Walt Disney World. You get a tour guide that stays with you the entire day and they customize your theme park visit to your wants and needs.

Typically, you get picked up in a private vehicle and can experience “unparalleled hospitality, experience some of your favorite attractions alongside a VIP Tour Guide.” You can pick your start time, park hop, and enjoy insights from your VIP Tour Guide. Additionally, you can use FastPass+ an unlimited amount of times for most attractions which can really help cut down on wait times.

Even though FastPass+ is suspended at the Disney World theme parks right now, you can still cut the lines on your VIP tour as if you had unlimited FastPasses! For some people beating the Florida heat and not having to wait in line is totally worth the money.

With a seven-hour minimum and up to $750 an hour, you can see how the cost of this experience adds up. So, is it worth it?

I think you can enjoy a great day at any Walt Disney World theme park without paying for a VIP Tour. But it you have the extra cash and you want to do something really memorable, go for it!

The Tour Guides are very knowledgeable, and getting FastPass+ or skipping attraction lines through your tour guide is an amazing perk. Again, even without the FastPass+ option at Disney Parks right now, you can still get to the front of the line with a VIP Tour Guide, almost making purchasing one even more valuable!
