DescriptionEnjoy an exclusive access tour of the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway, and experience the magic of Disney in New York City. Created in collaboration with the Disney Theatrical Group, the tour is a dream from Broadway and Disney fans alike. Spend 1 full hour with the in-house historian, learning the history of the incredible building. You’ll have the place to yourself so you can visit the 1st floor and balcony levels, admiring the vast stage as your guide describes what goes into the creation and performance of a Broadway production like “Beauty and The Beast,” “Mary Poppins,” “Aladdin,” and “The Lion King.” Hear stories of the goings-on behind the scenes, and learn about the superstitions held by Broadway performers - including a few ghost stories. Next, visit the Prop Studio to see original props, costumes, and set piece for many of your favorite Disney on Broadway musicals. Hear audio recordings from shows, and learn lots of fun Disney trivia. Please note, with preparations underway for 'Frozen' the musical, this room will be inaccessible from November 20, 2016. Instead, guests who take this tour between November 20 and January will, for the first time in a century, have a real backstage experience at this historic theater, walking onstage themselves. After January, guests will once again have access to props and costumes, this time in the orchestra pit of the theater.

Stop at landmark theatres where legendary shows drew huge crowds and global attention. Travel with one of the “Broadway Insiders,” drawn from a bank of actors, crew members, and theatre mangers. Discover the unlikely origins of Times Square, and hear the rags-to-riches tale of NYC’s theatre district, and how Disney was instrumental in changing the fate of a notorious red light district. Learn about the legendary Ziegfeld Follies that kick-started Broadway production as you know it; not to mention the careers of so many legendary performers. Visit Sardi’s to see the famous character portraits, learning about the on and off-screen shenanigans of Broadway’s biggest names.
