Though there are plenty of choices when it comes to VIP tours, there's only one that allows foodies to get an up close look at all the best on the menu at the Magic Kingdom, you'll want to book the Taste of Magic Kingdom VIP Tour.

For $99 guests can grab bites of iconic Magic Kingdom snacks, hear stories from chefs and cast members, and even get an insider’s look at the creation of new menu items. The tour also includes exclusive and unprecedented access to backstage kitchens and working areas that have never before been seen by guests. VIP Tour guests can also help Disney culinary artists create the next generation of Magic Kingdom park food by sampling an item that is still in development.

This experience is currently offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and is 3 hours long. In addition, guests must be at least 16 years of age to participate in this experience, making this one tour that is not a good fit for families with young children.
