    Question Tour of Glendale Imagineering

    Has anyone been successful in getting a tour of the Glendale Imagineering campus? I would love to hear about success stories. In my attempts, I keep getting a polite "No", but others have said that I might be able to wrangle a tour if I was a member of certain groups. Possible?

    Ask that question without the freaky picture of you in a mask and you might get some response. haha

    D23 sells tickets to visit the Disney Studios and Archives to its members, you might be able to get one of those. Though you probably won't see any of the Imagineering buildings, mostly for legal and confidentiality reasons. Disney is highly protective of what it's developing, and it doesn't want outsiders getting wind (or pics or a recording of any sort) of what's going on.

    WDI? Not unless you know someone to get you a sign on, which I believe most employees of the Studio can do. But you'd need access to someone AT WDI for a true tour. And that's all I'm going to say on that.

    Cast Members can go any time they like. Buddy up to one and buy them a beer.

    Geographical reasons too. The former is located in Burbank and the latter is headquartered a city away in Glendale.

    I had heard that Imagineering is more retricted, and only certain cast members are able to give access.

    You may be right. I would have to double check. Maybe it depends on how much beer you are willing to buy?
