This tour exceeded all our expectations! Absolutely worth the money, as we went on one of the busiest days of the year and never waited for a single ride! Our tour guide was great value and we learnt so much of what goes on behind the scenes. We loved the buffet lunch and had an amazing day!

This tour was the best!!! It is awesome how much time we saved avoiding lines and actually visiting inside the studios where the actors were filmed. The food was excellent! It was an experience of a lifetime!
