VIP Studio Tour with Disney Legend Dave Smith

This spring, D23 is debuting a new experience sure to surprise and delight even the most frequent visitors to The Walt Disney Studios: the VIP Studio Tour.

You’ll visit new locations at The Walt Disney Studios on a working day, complete with the hustle and bustle of Disney staff, and movies and television shows in production! Plus, we’ll stop by locations not previously included on our tours. No two VIP tours are alike, and this very first one features lunch with Walt Disney Archives Founder and Disney Legend Dave Smith.

Your afternoon will also include an exclusive gift created just for you and, as always, time to shop at the Disney Studio Store.
