I find it interesting that the new tour is open to age 12 and up, while the old tour was for 16 and up. Interested to see what the detailed changes are and how exactly it has become more kid friendly (or perhaps less in depth/intellectual).

I wonder why they didn't go with Backstage Tails?

I guess the value of this tour varies on what a person is interested in. While I love DAK and seeing the animals that make up the park, I wouldn't pay $90/person to see the facilities, housing and nutrition center. To me, that's priced way too high to even consider. To some, maybe it's worth it.

Meh - you can see almost all of that from on stage though.

I'm not sure about most reasonably priced... I think the Behind the Seeds tour will forever hold that distinction.

Most reasonably priced tour - seems fun
