For the ultimate VIP treatment, you can consider a VIP tour package.

Walt Disney World offers a number of VIP tours:

With all VIP tours, normal park admission tickets, including Magic Your Way Park Hopper if you intend to visit more than one park, are required along with photo ID.

The original “We Make Wishes Come True” tour allows a party of up to ten guests to tailor a tour to their exact requirements and wishes.

In June 2014, Disney introduced two new VIP guided tours that visit specific attractions and encompass three of the four theme parks; namely Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The “The Ultimate Day of Thrills” is aimed at thrill seekers and the “The Ultimate Day for Young Families” at families with young children and there is one tour guide for every ten guests to provide that personal experience.

During the walking tour you get front-of-line access to some of the star attractions as well as lunch at a table service restaurant.

Note that the actual rides on the day may vary due to operational reasons and timing and transportation between parks is provided by Disney.
