This was my first time to visit Graceland. We purchased Platnum ticket which got us into all attractions. After purchasing the ticket there was about an hour wait so it gave us time to visit the attractions on that side of the street (Airplanes,Cars, etc.). The line looks very long when waiting to go to Graceland but it moves very quickly. They take your picture before boarding the bus so be prepared to spend 30 dollars for the pictures and about that for your platnum ticket. As you board the bus they give you earphones and a radio. This is a guided tour using this devise. I was skeptical at first but I grew to really enjoy being able to go through Graceland and my own pace. As the group stalls you can pause the recorder and then restart when you get to the area. You will not go upstairs where Elvis passed. That is out of respect that it is closed off to the public. Many trophy rooms. After the tour was over we waited maybe 5 minutes and a bus was there to take us back. They had complementary umbrellas for those areas were it was not covered. No flash photography or video is allowed. Just remember to take your time and read what you want. There is a tour coming in right behind you but that does not mean you have to be rushed. Your recorder will pause everytime you leave one facilty into another. It also allows you to punch in codes that can tell you more than the simple guided tour. FYI: Each attraction exits into a gift shop.
