Universal Studios Hollywood – Studio Backlot Tour

 

This summer I went out to Universal Studios Hollywood and had a wonderful time. Hands down my favorite experience there was the Universal Studios Backlot Tour. This studio tour is unique to Universal Studios Hollywood. It is something that you can’t find in Universal Studios Florida.

 

The experience of getting to go back stage and seeing the inner workings of this real studio backlot was an incredible experience. The amazing part of this attraction is that it is not simply an attraction – it is a real working studio backlot!

 

I am a movie buff and I love old Hollywood history so this tour was right up my ally! I loved seeing recognizable sets from many of my favorite movies and tv shows and hearing the facts that our guide had to share about the history of the studio.

 

Another great thing about the tour is that it’s never the same! It is a fluid environment where things on the back lot are changing minute to minute! So every time you ride you never know what you may happen to catch filming or who you might see!

 

I am already planning a visit back to Universal Studios Hollywood! I highly recommend visiting this park and when you go be sure to visit the back lot tour! Contact your Kingdom Magic Vacations travel Planner today to plan your next vacation!

 

 

Have You Experience that Magic of Walt Disney World Resort?

You feel it when you look at Cinderella Castle. You breathe it in when you climb into a Doombuggy in the Haunted Mansion. You are surrounded by it on an African Savanna at Animal Kingdom. It compels you to soar high above California at Epcot and enables you to rub elbow with the stars of Hollywood, past and present.

The Magic of Walt Disney World

That’s the magic of Walt Disney World. The magic that transforms adults into children and takes you, no matter what your age, to far off worlds of fantasy and wonder. And if you have ever been touched by that magic, you are changed forever.

There are so many things in our lives that are important and serious, but Disney World is something entirely different…it’s an escape, a fantasy, a magical place where dreams really do come true…a place where families can reconnect and adults and children alike can just play.

Family Vacation at Walt Disney World Resort

This is why all of us at Kingdom Magic Vacations have the best job in the world, we help families enjoy their time at this wonderful, magical place. And to share our love and passion with you. You can book your vacation with any company, but we think that it’s our agents, our incredible service, and our passion for Disney that separates us from the rest.

And we LOVE to hear your stories.  We enjoy hearing about your trips and how you experienced the magic.  And remember that Kingdom Magic is always there for you to help you experience the Magic of Walt Disney World.

If you haven’t been there in a while, it’s time to go back, and if you have never been…we think it will change you forever.

That’s the Magic of Walt Disney World.

A Unique Point of View: Red Car Trolley at Disney California Adventure Park

When I first saw the Red Car Trolley in Disney California Adventure park I knew it would be a great fit for this series. Our Broadcast Services team did an amazing job mounting four cameras in six different positions throughout the trolley as it traveled down Hollywood Blvd to Buena Vista Street and back again. The diagram below shows where each camera was placed to create this truly unique point-of-view video. Enjoy!
