    I love the Panel! I have heard that the Wilderness Lodge, Grand Floridian, and Yacht Club do tours. What kind of tours do they do, and is it only for those resort guests or is it far all WDW resort guest? Where can I find times that the tours are available

    Hi Monica!

    The tour of the Wilderness Lodge is a must-do in my opinion! A ranger will take you through the various floors of the lodges and describe the different Native American and American Northwest influences on the lodge's architecture. Time permitting, you may also visit the villas to get a glimpse of the lobby architecture there and the trains which Walt loved so much. This tour is offered most mornings.

    Animal Kingdom Lodge also offers tours, including a culinary tour of Boma: Flavors of Africa and Jiko: The Cooking Place. This tour is quite fun too and is usually offered in the afternoons on most days.

    These tours are free and open to anyone who'd like to join in. The best way to find out when they are offered is to stop by that resort's lobby concierge and ask for a calendar of events (since times do vary with the season).

    I've looked though the calendars that I have for Grand Floridian and Yacht Club and did not find any tours listed. Sorry I couldn't help with those resorts!
