  • Before boarding the trams, each guest will need to go through the metal detector. Be sure to pack light for the reception, or be aware that anything metal will need to be checked before boarding.
  • The trams will drop off at the Studio Tour depot in the park. From there, you may either walk across the park to the soundstage entrance (about a 5-10 minute walk), or take a shuttle directly to the soundstage (there may be a wait for the shuttles).
