Important Notes:

  • When you arrive at the Grand Ballroom at the Sheraton, stop by the registration counter to pick up your wristband for the tour, drink tickets and name badges. Drink tickets will only be used at Sound Stage 29 and will not be needed during the Happy Hour at the Sheraton.
  • Trams for the private tour of Universal’s famous back lot will begin boarding at 5:30pm at the ballroom circle at the Sheraton Universal Hotel. All drinks from the happy hour will need to be finished before boarding the trams.
  • 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).
  • The trams for the studio tour will be the only access to the park/reception from the hotel. If you are planning to go to Universal during the day before our reception, you will be able to get to Sound Stage 29 for our reception. The Sound Stage is located near the Transformers ride and the reception will start at 7:00pm.
  • Dinner & drinks will be served at Sound Stage 29! The following menu options will be available for dinner:
    • Sliced New York Steak with Gremolata
    • Grilled Salmon on a bed of Tomato Fondue
