Knowledgeable but too much outside time

Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. However, when reading the details of the tour, you failed to mention that most of the time would be spent outdoors when we thought it would take place in the theatres. It was extremely cold which made it very unpleasant and difficult to enjoy.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your guide, though sorry to hear that the cold prevented you from fully savoring the whole of your tour! Before venturing into Disney's New Amsterdam Theater, we like to set the stage with a walking tour covering the history and landmarks of New York City's most famous theater district. We apologize for any lack of clarity that lead to you being unprepared for the weather! Thank you for sharing your experience with us; we appreciate your feedback and will take your comments into consideration as we move forward into the future!

THE BEST EXPERIENCE FOR DISNEY THEATER FANS

Absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who loves theater history, who loves New York Broadway experiences and who loves Disney! The tour guide was amazing and an aspiring Broadway star! Enjoyed all of the history and fun facts. The backstage tour of the New Amsterdam was amazing, the ghost stories, and my teens actually put their phones down and got excited about trying on the Disney costumes.

Thank you for your review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us exploring Broadway and its history. What better way to immerse yourself in the scene than by trying on the costumes with props? We are excited that your family enjoyed your time with us and hope that the rest of your visit to New York City was just as fabulous.

This was a great way to learn more about the history of Broadway and hear some behind the scenes information. Our guide was aspiring actress Eloise, whose Australian accent made her comments especially enchanting. Be sure you hang in there for behind the scenes experience at the Amsterdam Theater where you learn the history of the theater and why Disney became a partner in the renovation. The grand finale is some time in the wardrobe room where you can try on some of the costumes used in the various Disney productions. Only caution, is this is primarily a walking tour, so individuals with limited mobility might find it difficult; children under 8 years might not enjoy the early part of the tour. Overall highly recommend!

Thank you so much for your kind feedback! We appreciate your recommendation as well as your detailed account of the tour! We hope that the rest of your visit to New York is just as wonderful and that the history you learned on the first part of your walk enhanced your appreciation of Broadway at large.

The tour guide was excellent but I was disappointed in the content of the tour. Our 13 year old grand-daughters and daughter were with us. I feel there was too much focus on the history of Broadway in general. It could have been encapsulated in a 15 minute talk. The interesting info like the cost of advertising ( Schubert Alley) could have been shared while we walked by instead of stopping. The gamd of questions was time consuming but unnecessary. We took the tour to see Beyond the magic and yet we spent the least amount of time doing that. We spent a little less than one hour in the actual Amsterdam Theater seeing the stage and then a limited supply of costumes......and the was the best part! Wondering why a quick stop to walk across the stage of Lion King or Frozen was not included?

We LOVED Disney Broadway Behind-the-Scenes! Ric was our tour guide and a true Broadway actor / insider. He gave us a fun and informative walking tour with lots of insider information. The New Amsterdam theater was beautiful, the Disney guides were great and we had so much fun taking photos with the Disney Broadway props and costumes! FUN! FUN! FUN! Do this one!

Our tour guide was a budding Broadway actor and she was wonderful! Lots of energy and lots of great information. The tour includes time on the stage of the New Amsterdam theater where you can see the set pieces ready to come on stage - from all sides! Trying on the costumes and headpieces from The Lion King, Frozen and Little Mermaid was so much fun - lots of great photo ops.

Corey was our guide & was ver knowledgeable. He provided lots of history as well as fun trivia as we made our way around The theatre district. Also made a visit to Sardis which is important to Broadway. Last stop was Amsterdam where we got to actual be onstage. We got to see where/how the magic happens. Final part was actually experiencing some of the costumes from Disney productiond.

Phenomenal Tour with Cory West !!!! Theater and story telling as well as trivia was so much fun for all of us. The theater is just beautiful. It was an energetic tour easily walked by our 67 year old grandmother . Cory makes you feel so part of it all. It was the highlight of our trip outside of our Frozen show. We saw 4 shows , and had 3 tours and this was simply the favorite for all of us. It may have been the enthusiasm or the friendliness of Cory enough interaction without talking too much. He is a wonderful representative of your company. He was sincere and not phony . The tour itself at the New Amsterdam Theater with costumes to try and pictures was so fun for everyone Just wish there was a little more time for photo ops..with 24 people and so few costumes some had to wait for others to be finished before could take a picture and again it was a short amount of time and everyone was rushed. Thanks Cory !

My best friend and I had such a great time on this tour! I've been to the city many times and learned so much from our tour guide Colin! Standing on a broadway stage was for sure a highlight as well has trying on the costumes and props from many Disney broadway shows.

I booked this tour for a friend and me when we were visiting NYC because I love all things Disney and musicals. Our guide Colin was phenomenal!!! We had no problem tracking him down at the meeting spot and we had a small group so it made it nice and intimate. Colin had a great deal of knowledge of the history of Broadway (even some thiings I didn't know) and was able to share his own personal knowledge and stories from working on Broadway. He made the whole tour very enjoyable. We loved getting on stage at the Amsterdam theatre and trying on the costumes from Disney shows. I will and have already highly recommended this tour to others. You will learn a lot and have fun at the same time. Thank you Colin!!! *I promise Colin did not pay me for this review, nor are we besties, but I'm sure if I lived in New York we would be. Ha ha!*

I absolutely loved this tour! The tour guide was so nice and funny and really made everyone feel included. I loved how it included a lot of background history on various Broadway theaters as well as the hands on aspect at the end. It was very cool to be able to see behind the scenes of Aladdin and see all the props from the previous shows.
