Our tour included an overview of the Energy and Waves program including backstage access to Magic Kingdom’s Haunted Mansion ride, hands-on experiences with light reflection and a prism, and a backstage tour of the marching band area. We even had a surprise visit from Mickey and friends with photo opps! It’s very rare to find all of the Mickey Mouse crew in one spot, so that was a really special treat! We then explored Magic Kingdom on our own for a few hours, enjoying the theme park food and attractions. We had a really fun mother-son day!
