Hourly Rate:
Our VIP Private Guide service is $250 per hour for any time the Guide is of service for a party of up to 8 guests. We charge $490 per hour for 2 Private Guides for parties of 9 to 16 guests. Please contact us for more information.

Disney Ticket for Private Guide: Due to Disney temporarily suspending sales of 365-day annual passes at the Walt Disney World Orlando and Disneyland California Resorts, we MAY need to charge for whatever ticket is required for the Private Guide(s) to enter the park on your requested dates. Ticket prices vary by the day of the week, travel season, and seasonal specials. We can advise you of this cost before you reserve your VIP Tour if needed. This amount will be charged at the end of your VIP Tour on your final invoice. Note: If your Guide is able to use their Disney annual pass, which is our preference, you will not be charged anything extra.

Deposit: Regardless of which parks you visit on either coast, we request $500 per Private Guide for each reserved day as a deposit at the time of booking. This amount will be fully credited to your invoice at the end of your vacation. If your tour is cancelled outside of our standard 24-hour cancellation policy, you will be refunded in full or credited to a future vacation -- your choice.

Gratuity Guidance: Because the VIP Private Guide position is one of personal service, the appropriate "thank you" gift should be at least 20% of the total VIP Tour hours, or $50 per hour. Your invoice will have this portion left blank, and the amount filled in is respectfully your discretion.

Rate Information

We request that your VIP Private Guide be used a minimum of six consecutive hours per day. An exception is made if your family requests a split-day itinerary and if he or she is joining you for the second half (as long as it is a reasonable request). The total VIP Tour hours for this recommended daily plan is typically 6-8 hours depending on the theme park's hours of operation.

Your VIP Private Guide will be taking great care of everyone in your party all day. We trust that you will be a polite host in return and respect that they will be doing everything they can to ensure you have the best possible experience. He or she can be included with your dining plans when with you if you wish. However, they may need to work during these times to prepare for the rest of your day.

There is a cancellation fee of four VIP Tour Hours, whichever rate is applicable, plus an additional standard service gratuity of 20% for your Private Guide, should you cancel your VIP Tour with less than 24-hours notice. Our VIP Private Guides rely on their income, and canceling with no warning also hurts the other families that we have had to turn away. It is simply not the right thing to do and we are sure you agree. Note: As with everything in life, there will be exceptions made on a case by case basis. We are only after what is fair and appropriate for all involved.

Itinerary Planning: Michael's VIPs provides itinerary planning at no additional charge for the dates we are hosting you with our VIP Private Guide service as Michael considers it an important part of your VIP Tour experience. This includes Michael advising an optimal itinerary of parks, dining, special activities, and most importantly, rest. With your approval our office will then take care of every detail like tickets, park and dining reservations, transportation, and anything else required for a successful vacation!

Transportation: The fees for your transportation to and from the airport and/or parks are variable and depend on the service and mode of travel reserved: Black Car, van, stretch limousine, stretch SUV, etc. We know who is dependable with the best quality cars and drivers, and will gladly take care of this for you if desired. Your bill settlement will be between you and the company reserved, and they accept all of the normal means of payment. We can arrange anything, so please be sure to discuss this with your VIP Tour Coordinator. Note: We do not add any additional fees to what we are quoted, nor are we on a paid commission to any of these services.

If your VIP Private Guide drives a rented vehicle for your party, you are expected to pay the rental fee and any operational costs associated with it (i.e. fuel, tolls).
