Marceline to Main St (MK) tour?

Has anyone done this tour or do you know of anyone who has?  I was all excited about trying to book this since Sara hit the minimum age of 12.  I've had difficulty booking, though; I've been calling since Oct but it's not on the schedule to be booked while we're there.  I was hoping that it would become available once the "real" Easter hours were announced (which they finally were!).  However, while I was waiting, I had read the very few reviews for this tour and it was mentioned that part of the tour takes you on or behind the Haunted Mansion.  Clara will NOT do the tour if that is the case.  I still don't even know if it will be available during our trip dates but I was wondering if anyone else had heard about the HM being a part of this tour?  Thanks!

Thanks for checking Kim :) I actually posted a question on the Disney Mom's Panel (and they answered!) but she too couldn't find any reviews which mentioned specific attractions. She suggested we go for it and we could always opt out and wait for our tour group if we had to ride/go thru the HM. Well, of course, I called to see if it was available yet and it looks like it's all booked for the time we're there. It's only offered 3 days per week, once a day and for a max of 20 guests so it must be hard to come by. Maybe we'll try for it another time. Thanks again!

I poked around on the TA site and this all that there was:

Walt Disney: Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour
(8:15 am - Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays - 2.5 to 3 hrs)
Explore how events in Walt Disney's life helped shape the Walt Disney World Resort and the attractions within it. As one of Walt's final visions, the Magic Kingdom Park shares many similarities and likenesses to the storyline of his life. By using the park as a walking timeline, guests will discover how the events in Walt's life helped develop his understanding and view of the world around him, and inspired him to create some of the most wonderful and cherished stories and attractions in our theme parks. During this 2.5 to 3 hour walking tour, guests will also get an insider look into the operation and design of some of the most beloved attractions in the Magic Kingdom Park.

No mention of WHICH attractions they give you the "insider look" at.
