    Question The Backlot Tour

    Hello,
    Do any of you Disney experts know what happened to all of the houses and sets that were on the Backlot tour, also what year they were taken out? I went in 1998 when I was 6 and they were there and I loved it, but in 2007, there were none on the tour, it was rubbish!
    Also, does anyone know what houses and sets were on the tour?

    Thankyou in advance!

    I remember the houses, the one that they always talked about was from "The Golden Girls". There was also a walk through warehouse where you could see props from a lot of movies. And there was a interactive where kids could be chosen to "ride" a bumble bee as in Honey I Shrink The Kids. And Finally there was an interactive with Bette Midler from one of her Disney Movies. I think they may still so the Boat in the Storm interactive, but I haven't been in a couple of years. I also remember going by the buildings where costumes were made.

    Residential Street was also really nice when the Osborne Family Lights were there.

    They were removed around 2001 to make room for the construction if the Lights Motors Action amphitheater.

    The backlot tour is a fraction of its old self. It really should be renamed especially since DHS hasn't been an operating studio in many years.

    I heard the "Backlot Express Tour" on WDW Today as a new title. Also, I seem to recall the film with Bette Midler was "The Lottery". I remember it being quite funny.
