Itinerary

Disney on Broadway

For Broadway lovers and Disney fans, there’s no better experience than this new, exclusive access tour. Created in collaboration with Disney Theatrical Group, this tour takes you behind the magic at the New Amsterdam Theatre; entering when the theatre is closed for a special guided tour.

Spend a full hour with the in-house historian, learning about the history of this incredible building. You’ll have the place to yourself so you can visit the first floor and balcony levels, admiring the vast stage as your guide describes what goes into the creation and performance of a Broadway productions like Beauty & The Beast, Mary Poppins, Aladdin and The Lion King. You’ll hear stories of the goings-on behind the scenes and learn about the superstitions held by Broadway performers, including a few ghost stories!

The highlight of your experience is in the second part of your New Amsterdam tour. You’ll visit the Prop Studio, where you’ll find treasures untold, getting up close and personal with original props, costumes and set piece for many of your favorite Disney on Broadway musicals.

While we do spend a lot of time on the Disney element of our tour (you’ll hear audio recordings from shows and learn lots of fun Disney trivia), we don’t just stop there: This is a proper Broadway tour.

To ensure that you get a full picture of Broadway and that you have as much context as possible when you visit the New Amsterdam, you’ll take a guided tour of Broadway before your visit, stopping at landmark theaters where legendary shows drew huge crowds and global attention. For this section of your tour, you’ll travel with one of our Broadway Insiders, a team drawn from a bank of actors, crew members and even theater mangers, all of whom have first-hand experience of life behind the curtain.

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 of the legendary Ziegfeld Follies which kick started Broadway production as we know it, not to mention the careers of so many legendary performers. You’ll also visit Sardi’s to see the famous character portraits, learning about the on and off-screen shenanigans of Broadway’s biggest names.

With your Broadway Insider guide, you’ll see the most popular cast hangouts and identify the most important theatres — in both a historic sense and from a theatrical and musical standpoint. You’ll hear stories you’ll hardly be able to believe and get a grasp of just how colossal a Broadway production is; how much blood and sweat goes into every performance and how many people there are behind the scenes and in the wings each time the curtain rises.

We’ve chosen only the best guides to join our Broadway Insiders team and have drawn up the perfect route to showcase the very best of showbiz, combining the magic of Disney and the glamour of Broadway into one epic behind-the-magic adventure.

Tips:
End Point: Tour usually ends at the New Amsterdam Theatre but on some occasions, the Broadway tour may continue for a short time after theater visit, in which case the tour will end within easy walking distance of the theater.

Due to ongoing construction and preparations of the New Amsterdam Theatre for the premiere of Frozen on Broadway, from November, 20 2016 through January 2017, the costume room access will be replaced by an actual backstage experience. The backstage area of Broadway theatres has been off limits to public tours for decades, and hasn't been accessed by the public in the New Amsterdam in nearly a century. We ask that you strictly respect your tour guide's instructions while backstage to continue to allow us to offer this highly exclusive experience. Between January 2017 and July of 2018, the costume and prop access will be restored via a mobile cart brought into the orchestra section of the theatre.

    Memorable day

    Ben; was an incredible tour guide. Not only did he tour us around times square and broadway explaining the history and beginings of theatres in New York, but as he himself, was indeed an musical actor, he answered many questions about theat...re on a persoanl level. This is an insight you would rarely have an opportunity to hear about and was as interesting as the tour itself. We were then taken to the New Amsterdamn theatre whereby Aladin is currently playing and were given the history of the theatre and then allowed to the props departments, where we were allowed to touch, look, try on costumes and props from the most famous disney broadway productions such as 'the little mermaid and beauty and the beast'. Not something i'm sure you could experience anywhere else. This tour is an absolute must for theatre and / or disney lovers alike!! Highlight of my trip to NYC. Read full review

    I loved every minute of it with my families

    I took this tour with four granddaughters, ages 18, 16, 15, and 9. The teenagers and I loved every minute of it. Our guide was so knowledgeable, charming, and funny, he won us all over right from the start. I was not surprised to learn that..., in addition to being a performer, he is also a professor at one of the local colleges. All of the children ADORED trying on Mary Poppins clothes, getting into Ariel (the Little Mermaid's) bathtub, and posing with masks from the Lion King. Read full review
