    The Studio Tour was good, but only 1 hour. The park was opened for 12 hours! We left for 4 hours in the middle of the day to do Hollywood Boulevard (for our sins) and then returned for the evening.

    I literally didn't even spend the full day in the park! I have to say, this will change once all the new additions are opened.

    maybe it’s doing the VIP tour that made the big difference to me then, that was more like 2-3 hours as it’s taken at slower pace and stops to allow photos off the tram.

    we did fill the rest of the day fine with the shows and stuff, but the repetition of rides from Florida was an issue.

    Dare I ask the price of the VIP tour? We paid $120 for admission (£90) alone...! :D

    i think it was about $250 when we did it.

    But included valet parking, light breakfast, bottled water during the tour, buffet lunch, reserved seating for Waterworld and a behind the scenes bit. Rides with the tour guide who could hold bags and take photos and then once the guide left you could use the express entrance on all rides for the rest of the day.
    But the main benefit is the longer tour (including the prop warehouse) and the opportunity to get off the tram for photos.
