5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

As I, m disabled I hired a electric buggy. This made it so much easier to get about. As a v.i.p. holder there was no waiting in line to get on the rides. The bus tour around the back lots were superb especially the old cowboy sets. It was great that you got to stay on the bus for some rides. All the other rides were also wheelchair friendly so I didn't miss out on anything. I got scared. I screamed and I had a whale of a time. I went on everything including flying with harry potter and sitting in the front row of the soak area in waterworld. I would do it all again. Such a thrilling day. Not bad for a 72 year old disabled lady. Well worth the money. Lovely free breakfast and a wonderful lunch. I advise you to buy a V.I.P. ticket.

You guys, listen to the reviews on here. There is simply no other way to do the park. The free valet parking, the delicious breakfast, the INCREDIBLE lunch over looking all of LA, the ability to cut every line and efficiently work your way through the park, the private studio tour with access to things that the public doesn't see, it's all worth the money. AND once your tour is over, you get to keep your VIP pass and stay the entire rest of the day jumping to the front of lines. We stayed for the entire day going on ride after ride and felt like kings. I'd definitely recommend this. And Aurora was a fabulous guide who really helped the entire day run smoothly :

This was worth buying the VIP ticket. Excellent service and great staff. No queues and booked this the second day of the Harry Potter Opening Day. I must say it was my favorite ride.
