“Good Experience - wish there was more for the cost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

My husband and I very much enjoyed the tour. We learned a lot about how some of our favorite shows were filmed and the costume museum was a highlight with a whole floor dedicated to Harry Potter. We toured a room full of cars from famous movies like the Great Gatsby and Batman. The only thing that was disappointing was we were only allowed on one sound stage for a new show Mama. Being that it is brand new and I have never seen it I didn't have the same excitement as if we were able to tour a well known show. It would have been better if we got to see two or three different stages since that is where the magic happens. Aside from that, it is definitely worth it if you want a learning experience. Parking was easy in a Warner Brothers lot across the street for $7-8 and there was no time limit. The whole tour lasted two hours.

“Studio Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We enjoyed this studio attraction very much because of the knowledge and personality of our tour guide. The Warner Brothers studio was much cleaner than we anticipated. The Museum was a hit also.

“Fun, but less organic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We went to the WB studios tour after Paramount, and I should forewarn that we took the VIP tour at Paramount (which is a 4 hour tour) and the regular tour at WB (which is called VIP but is 2 hours, with a longer 4 hour option available). While the WB tour was fun and we saw the actor from the Mentalist walking around, all in all we enjoyed the Paramount tour a little more. I'm still not sure if it was because of the different setup, which is possible (4 hour instead of 2 hour) or if it is truly just planned a little more cleanly.

The WB tour was very planned and sequential. We got on a trolly and listened as the guide explained things. We got off a few times and saw some really cool stuff (the batman tumbler and the superman costume for instance) but couldn't touch them. It felt much more staged than paramount, which was fine but just not quite as fun as the tour we had done earlier that morning.

“Warner Bros Studio Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Went on the 2.5 hour tour. It was great. My daughter saw where PLL was taped. If you go the right time of year, you might get to see a taping. Sat on the "Friends" set. Lots of fun and interesting stuff.
