Learn about the magic of filmmaking!
Did you know that you can tour the Warner Bros Studio? You can and it’s amazing! This tour is a must do for any fans of filmmaking. We opted for the Studio Tour Plus which got us breakfast, lunch and extra time with our tour guide (plus getting to go into some areas of the studio that the regular tour does not get to go to). The tour starts with a walk through of a brief history and information about Warner Bros. Then there’s a short movie about Warner Bros in this nice theater room. Next, it was off to the tour itself!
Lights, Camera, Action!
We got around the lot primarily by a big golf cart that our tour guide drove around the lot. We did have plenty of opportunities to get out and get to walk on the lot. It was cool to see all the places where filmmaking magic happens! They even had a set still up from Casablanca! It’s especially amazing how a small place can translate so something so big with a little movie magic.
We also got to go inside some of the soundstages, it was really interesting to how the sets are set up. However, we weren’t allowed to take pictures inside but I did take a picture of the Friends stage (we didn’t get to go into that one though).
Also, we got to go in the prop warehouse where I saw 3 of the lamps from A Christmas Story. They probably had 3 because they are fra-gil-e.
Let’s go to Central Perk
After touring the studio, we got to visit Central Perk from Friends! This is where we got to have lunch and sit among recreated sets from Friends. It felt like we were really there! It was so neat to get to not only see it but also get to eat at it. I even had a Central Perk cupcake! Next to Central Perk was another exhibit with different parts of filmmaking, we enjoyed watching a short demonstration on sound. It’s amazing how many different aspects go into sound for just one scene. After lunch, we took a short golf cart ride to the fountain from Friends which was so cool!
Immerse yourself in the Movies
The last part of the tour was an awesome area where there were props and photo ops. We saw some photo areas from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast. In addition, we got sorted into Harry Potter Houses. It was the perfect ending to the tour. The tour emptied out to the Warner Bros Studio Store where they had all sorts of goodies from everything Warner Bros!
Also, I got to hold an actual Oscar! It was so heavy!
