I've been putting off writing this post, even though Mom and I took the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour at Disneyland back in September. The thing is, it's a great tour, very in depth, and that means there's a lot to write about, a lot of pictures to include, and tons of fun details to impart. I needed a whole few hours to set aside for this, and today I'm making the time, so if you're ready to read about this tour, I'm ready to tell you everything you've ever wanted to know, and then some.

WALK IN WALT'S DISNEYLAND FOOTSTEPS GUIDED TOUR
First off, you're going to see this tour called by a lot of different names. When I was Googling it before we went, I got a little confused because I wasn't sure if there was more than one tour by a slightly different name, or if people were talking about the same tour.
So, if you see it called anything like this:
walking in walt's footsteps disneyland
walk in walt’s footsteps disneyland
a walk in walt's footsteps tour
disneyland walk in walt's footsteps tour
disneyland walk with walt tour
disneyland walk with walt
walk in walt's disneyland footsteps guided tour
You're in the right place. This is all the same tour, and it has only one official name.
It's actually called Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps.
No matter what you're calling it, the tour is the same. It's the only one offered at Disneyland that has a name even remotely similar, and since there are so few tours offered at Disneyland, it's not hard to find.
It can, however, be hard to book, so let's talk about that first.

BOOKING A WALK IN WALT'S DISNEYLAND FOOTSTEPS GUIDED TOUR
You aren't able to book online, which is true of most Disney tours, so you will need to call and book over the phone.
If you have a travel agent that is handling your booking, you can also give them a call and they can book it for you.
I like booking things on my own, so I just made a quick call to Disney and spoke with one of their super helpful cast members.
You cannot book the tour more than 30 days out (or at least you couldn't when I booked it), so I would recommend putting a note in your calendar and booking it the moment you are able to. It is offered all week long, and they might add more times during the holiday season (which is around the time I'm writing this), but when we went it was only offered at 9:30 a.m. during the weekdays we'd be at Disneyland.
I called before the 30 day mark and was told that I'd have to wait to book. Instead of calling back at the 30 day mark, I put it off and got around to it a few days later.
By the time I booked there was only one time slot left, at 9:30 a.m. on the day before we went back home, and there were only two slots left. We were very lucky to get a spot, to say the least.
So, the tour fills up fast, don't wait to book it.
Now, let's talk cost.

WALK IN WALT'S DISNEYLAND FOOTSTEPS GUIDED TOUR PRICE
I am writing this in November of 2019, so I want you to be aware that the prices can definitely change. I recommend heading over to the Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps page on the Disneyland site and verify there. You may have to call if the current price isn't displayed.
Here is the information for the Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps guided tour 2019 cost:
When we went, the cost was $99 per person, which we thought was a fantastic price, especially after we finished the tour. That said, you can pay even less, if you fall into one of these three categories.
Getting discounts on the Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps price.
*You can get discounts on the tour if you have a Disneyland annual pass. You must have a Disneyland, not a Disney World, annual pass. You can have both, but the Disney World AP does not give you discounts at Disneyland.
If you are a Disneyland AP holder, you will get an additional 15% off the tour, so be sure to mention it when you book, though the Cast Member will likely ask.
*You can also get that 15% off if you are a DVC member, or if you are a Disney Visa holder.
Park admission is NOT included in the tour cost. You must already have Disneyland park tickets if you are going to participate. Be sure they are Disneyland tickets or park hopper tickets, as you will not be given entry if you are holding only California Adventure tickets.
Let's talk about what to expect on the tour as far as walking, hearing, eating, etc.
You will be given a confirmation number when you book, but you will not receive an email. Be sure to write down the confirmation number so you can give it to the Cast Member at Tour Gardens when you check in.
