I am a local Californian and by chance came across an ad for the WB Studio tour while staying at a hotel. Our son loves anything to do with movies so for his birthday we gave him a visit to the WB studio. I only booked the morning of our visit. I don't necessarily recommend this but wanted to inform you it can be a last minute decision. We arrived about 15 minutes before departure although they recommend 30 minutes. Once again I would go with their suggestion so you are not rushed. Thankfully it was a quiet Sunday morning. I was a bit concerned we wouldn't see much action because it was the weekend. Our tour guide informed us although we would not see any filming we were able to experience the entire tour uninterrupted. During the week this is not always the case so weekends are actually a great time to visit. Allow at least 3 hours for your visit. The studio tour is two hours and then they drop you off at Studio 48 where you get to learn more in depth about the script to screen process. At Studio 48 there is a gift shop and cafe. Be aware there will be options for add on expenses as well. Overall the WB Studio Tour was very enjoyable and informative. I highly recommend it to anyone that is fascinated by the tv/movie industry.
We took the deluxe tour on April 12th, 7 of us from jersey and there were a few from Australia on the tour with us. Our tour guide Thom was THE BEST! He was so knowledgable, so very nice! We are 4 adults and 3 thirteen year olds, I can't decide who liked it more!!! We got to visit stage sets indoors and out, prop warehouse...the lunch was delicious!! There were even some producers/writers of tv shows eating lunch near us, kind of a thrill! Thom was very good at pointing out the particular things that were important to the specific people in our group. We were so lucky to get him as our guide! We asked a lot of questions and he kindly and patiently answered each and every one of them! Sitting on the Friends couch and doing the Friends experience was definitely a huge highlight of our trip! Honestly we enjoyed it so much to days later we went back for the two hour tour it was just wary well done
We decided to take the regular tour. It is well worth the money. The tour guide polledl our group for our interests and then tailored our tour for us to see those things while also giving us a great sense of the whole studio and interesting history/facts. Helped me understand more how TV shows and movies are filmed. Lots of hands on and clear instructions when it is not!

We did the regular tour, not the VIP and though it seemed a bit expensive at first we found it to be well worth it and we're really glad we went. This is a real working studio, NOT a theme park! We saw both sound stages and lots where popular shows have been made for generations.
