Another popular package at Walt Disney World is the Ultimate Day of Thrills VIP Tour. Lunch is included in this seven-hour swing through top attractions — minus the lines — at Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios®.

If seven hours is too much of a time investment for you, Disney has many shorter tours to choose from. For instance, running four hours each, the Ultimate Disney Classics VIP Tour will take you through eight of Magic Kingdom Park’s most iconic rides, while the Ultimate Nights of Adventure VIP Tour at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park includes instant access to that park’s top attractions (including those at Pandora — The World of Avatar) and VIP seating for the Rivers of Light nighttime spectacular.

At Epcot, The UnDISCOVERed Future World is a four-hour walking tour of the theme park with a focus on Walt Disney’s vision. And clocking in at 2.5 hours, the Epcot Seas Adventures — Aqua Tour invites you to snorkel at The Seas With Nemo & Friends Pavilion.

Walt Disney World Resort offers several other VIP experiences and tours in Orlando. However, keep in mind that these special events carry an additional cost and do not include regular admission to the featured theme parks.

Everything from the VIP Experience above is included, plus dinner at one of Universal Orlando’s award-winning restaurants and a My Universal Photos™ 3-Day Photo Package. Both VIP Experiences last between five and seven hours and require regular park admission.

Universal Orlando Resort’s Halloween Horror Nights event scares up its own exclusive tour opportunities. First, the Behind the Screams: Unmasking the Horror Tour is a daytime, lights-on look into how Universal Orlando’s Art & Design team transforms the biggest names in horror into haunted houses. Guests can choose from either a 3-House or 6-House tour and the experience holds up to 15 guests and will include multiple parties in the same group. Theme park and/or Halloween Horror Nights event admission is not included and not required to participate in the tour.

For guests looking for the true blood-red carpet experience, the Halloween Horror Nights R.I.P. Tour provides priority access to all haunted houses and select attractions, reserved seating at select show(s), a pre-tour reception and more. Halloween Horror Nights event admission is required and must be valid for the same calendar day as the R.I.P. Tour ticket.

WARNING: HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS EVENT MAY BE TOO INTENSE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13. NO COSTUMES OR MASKS ALLOWED.

For even more quality time with SeaWorld’s denizens of the deep, book an Elite VIP Tour or Ultimate VIP Tour. Lasting six and eight hours, respectively, these packages include everything from the Private VIP Tour while adding additional signature shows and dining upgrades. All three VIP Tours require regular park admission.

If you come to SeaWorld more for the creatures than the rides, consider the park’s Animal Experiences — affordably priced add-ons to regular admission that will get you face-to-face with the park’s amazing residents without committing to a guided tour. And if you’ve ever wanted to swim with dolphins, the Trainer for a Day Program at SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove® will pair you with two of the majestic creatures, plus a behind-the-scenes tour and other extras.
