They lost me at Turkey Leg. Never had one, never will!!

Actually, it does sound like a very interesting tour. I look forward to reading reviews from people who've done it. I'm sure pictures are forbidden, though, especially of stuff in development.

Am I missing something? Maybe at Epcot or DS, or some resorts

What restaurants would anyone truly get excited to go behind the scenes at MK? Cosmic Ray's? 😂

Ok ok, if they give backstage access to Club 33 Kitchen, maybe that could be enticing. I'm guessing there's about 0.1% chance of that being on the tour.

Plus, it's not just the food the kitchens serve but how they prepare meals for hundreds of people that can be interested. Let's face it, you are inside a theme park getting food (at least at TS locations) that is WAY above theme park quality in a timely and well presented matter. The choreography and organization that Disney has to do to make things happen seamlessly is fascinating.

There are also the kitchens where the cart food is prepared - churros, turkey legs, etc. It's just another way to see behind the scenes, and in this instance, focusing on an area guests really love and many websites are dedicated to: Disney dining.

The kitchen tours on cruise ships are always popular.

I think Disney really overlooks how some younger kids are foodies these days. That's always been a complaint about V&A.

My bad. I'm probably impacting his bonus with this comment...

Cheers.
