    Anyone taken the Warner brothers and/or universal VIP tour?

    I'm talking about the one that's like 150 bucks. Can anyone tell me what they are both like? I can either have 3 days disneyland and 1 day universal for the tour and 1 day warner brothers for the tour...But if it isn't worth it I'll just do the better one and have 4 days in DL. What kinda stuff happens on these tours? Remember, I'm NOT talking about the general tour. I'm talking about the big, one time a day, expensive tour.

    Well, the regular WB tour is very much worth the price. So I'd think any mega expensive WB tour would be even more worth it!

    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Anyone taken the Warner brothers and/or universal VIP tour?

    I did the regular one, It's like $60??? not the VIP one. I've done the regular one a few times. You go the GG outside set - it's the town square w/the gazebo (last summer I went w/2 GG fans - they geeked out at the gazebo. It was so cute!) You walk around there and around other famous houses. We went on a holiday so no filming but we walked around where they were filming the Rent movie. And we went into the props warehouse and on the set of TV show - oh and what used to be the Friends coffeehouse (i sat on the couch!). The tour ends in the little museum - very cool and floor 2 is Harry Potter. (you can even be sorted by the sorting hat)

    But... I don't know what makes the VIP tour worth the extra $$ but I'd guess it really is worth it.

    You pass by the filming lot on any of the WB studio tours, and if they aren't filming in the square, then you can walk around and take pics of the place. Alot of people on the GG boards go to find out spoilers from the tour guides.

    Re: Anyone taken the Warner brothers and/or universal VIP tour?

    Yeah, we've been on the VIP Tour at both places (numerous times at USH).

    They each have their own pluses.

    I did an in-depth trip report w/pics after our last VIP experience in December at USH. Try doing a search.

    Our WB one was great too. We went into a "hot" set and another sound stage in which we found a used script laying on the floor. Our guide gave it to us! Cool keepsake.

    Try doing a search. You'll find plenty of info.

    Also, check out the "non-Disney" threads for more info on both Parks.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Anyone taken the Warner brothers and/or universal VIP tour?

    I've done the VIP at Universal several years ago. You basically
    take the same tour route as the regular tram, only they take you
    via a trolley. Since the VIP tour is very limited to the number ob
    people in each group, (mine was among the smallest, only 5 people
    total). The tour guide will give you the same basic info. But you
    can ask any questions, anywhere along the tour.

    Since it does follow the same route as the tram, (king kong, earthquake,
    jaws, etc) it certainly is a much more personal experience. Of course,
    since the route is subject to change, due to filming, certain areas in the
    backlot may be left out of the normal tour. However, since it is a more
    personal experience, the tour guide told us if we wanted to stop anywhere
    along the way, he would do so, a couple of times, so we could see the
    sets up close.

    Our group stopped at the infamous courthouse, and actually went up the
    steps and through the front door! Of course the back side showed it all
    to be just a facade ! Not a building at all. We also stopped in the area
    where the Psycho House is. At that time Jurassic Park 2 had just been
    filmed and there were extensive set in that whole area (dinosaur
    skeletons, set of "destructed" buildings from the movie) It was a lot
    of fun to walk around those areas that the tram normally drives right
    by.

    We did go on Back the Future as a Group. But that was the only
    attraction. When we finished the tour, our wristbands were good
    for the reserved seating sections of any of the shows, and good for
    front of the line passes for all the attractions (I rode the Jurassic
    Park ride several times in a row )

    Overall it was worth doing once, not so sure it would really be
    something I would want to do twice.

    I also have taken the Tour at Warner Bros. Definitely something
    worthwhile seeing!!! The tour is very much personal too. BUT
    don't expect anything like Earthquake or Jaws. This is a real working
    Studio, and UNLIKE Universal, you could very likely see some filming
    going on, whether it be inside one of the studios used for sitcoms, and
    such, to running into outdoor filming going on. I went on this tour at
    two different time. Once, they were doing filming of the Superman
    tv series outside on one of the street set, a we walked through an
    indoor set of some short lived sit com, but all the actors and actresses
    were there in rehersal. We also walked through some of the indoor
    sets from the Superman tv series. Another time, We were walking in
    one the the outdoor street set, and they blowing fake snow all over the
    front of one of the houses, and all the bushes and trees in the area
    (this was on a 70 plus degree day) shortly after, nearly the entire
    cast of "Sisters" were in the porch area of the house - all dressed in cold
    winter outfits. Our Golf cart of people also happen to drive by Drew
    Carey, and the Driver stopped and talked to Drew. He was very friendly
    to the whole group of us. We were also invited to watch a tapping of
    his show as part of the studio audience , later that evening.
    (unfortunately I already had previous plans for that same night)

    So, You just NEVER know what kind of surprises might occur on the WB
    tour. I was just on the 3 or 4 hour tour, but I understand a longer
    version has been made available.

    EDIT: Just to ADD, If you want to go on the WB tour, DEFINATELY
    CALL to make reservations as soon as you can! I don't think the
    tour operates all the time, and they are limited to a certain number
    of people.
