Members-Only Soarin Tour Comes to Florida

Go behind the scenes at Epcot with a free members-only tour of Soarin' Around the World!

Earlier this year, a new member-exclusive event debuted at Disney California Adventure, allowing owners to get a backstage look at Soarin' Around the World.  Now this unique experience has made its way to the east coast.  

Offered most Wednesday mornings, this brief walking tour gives members a look inside the popular attraction. The roughly one hour experience concludes with the tour group taking a ride on Soarin' with no wait.  

The tour is part of Disney Vacation Club's Membership Magic program.  Eligible owners can contact DVC Member Services beginning November 18, 2016 in order to register.  Theme park admission is required and all participants must be age 16 or older.  Tours will begin this month with no announced ending date.  Capacity is limited.

Thanks for the heads-up on this tour! We are returning to Walt Disney World in late March 2017 and I hope this tour will be offered during that time.

We'll be Soarin' in March! We just got off the phone from talking to Member Services and were able to book the Member-Only Soarin' tour for March 29.

At first, the MS cast member wasn't aware that the Soarin' tour was being offered at Walt Disney World. He put us on hold for a couple minutes while he checked. The CM found all the particulars for the tour and had no problems getting us two seats on the flight.

The DVC Member website has all the details about the tour. It starts November 30 and is offered on Wednesdays at 8:00 AM. Members have to register ahead of time and are given a confirmation number for their reservation. On the day of the tour, we were advised to have our DVC member ID cards and confirmation number.

The tour is free to DVC Members. It is considered a "Member Magic" perk, so DVC members whose only points are subject to the April 4, 2016, restrictions are not eligible.

When we made this reservation for our trip in March, the cast member said we could take up to 3 guests.

I think we got lucky. The website now says that bookings will begin on November 18.

We called as soon as Member Services opened this morning. I suspect that the Cast Members had not yet been briefed about the new tour and that the computer systems hadn't been programmed to block bookings until November 18. I think we just got lucky because we called so early before everything was properly set up.

I can understand why Disney might want to delay reservations until the 18th. The tour has been announced on the website and through sites like the DVCNews, so people are just now finding out about it. By waiting a week until the 18th to take reservations, it gives more people time to decide whether there want to do the tour and, more importantly, an equal chance to get reservations.
