Warner Bros. Tour: Gilmore Girls,Friends,Fuller House, Big Bang Theory

Warner Bros. Tour: Gilmore Girls,Friends,Fuller House, Big Bang Theory 




When we were in California we wanted to do something other than Disney one day. We decided to do I think it was 4 or 5 hour WB Tour. I would suggest getting there early because traffic is brutal! This was our last day in CA & we were flying the red eye home. We barely made our tour! At the beginning of the tour you sit in a mini theatre & watch a video. You will then be split into groups with your personal tour guide. I REALLY regret not watching Gilmore Girls before this tour. I would have appreciated it more. :) 


The vehicles they drive you in

I remember the first stop was said to have filmed a lot of Luke's Diner scenes but not all of them. They also drove us passed the lake that Luke pushes Jessie in but I didn't take a picture. SORRY! 






I believe this is the first house they used for Gilmore Girls. 




This is where they film Fuller House or parts of it! :) WE got to see the Fuller House babies when we walked passed their studio when going to Conan but no cameras were allowed out on the walk over or inside Conan studio.



This building was shot many times as the hospital for E.R.




You should recognize this area! It is where they have filmed Hart of Dixie, Gilmore Girls, & many other TV shows. They did show us The Gilmore Girls Antique store & Luke's Diner but I only had a few minutes to take pictures. There was SO much to see just in this small area. We got to go into one of the stores & they are very compact & empty & told us how the prop team does amazing job to make it look like a full functioning store. 




I was VERY excited to go here! Attention all FRIENDS fans! This is the house where they filmed the flashbacks like the one where Ross was going to be Rachel's last minute Prom Date. It was actual a decent sized nice house.

At the very end of the tour you get to see the super cute cafe & you get to sit in the Friend's area!!! 







We actually learned something cool here. The house above was actually the house they used to film Emily & Richard Gilmore's House & to save time on the other side out front was Lorelai & Rory's newer bigger house. This pic is actually in the back yard! 



Above is Patty's Dance Studio from Gilmore Girls! It was also used for one of the Clydesdales Budweiser commercials.



The theatre above was used on Friends & is still used today for the Big Bang Theory. Remember the Indiana Jones episode where everyone chases Sheldon? This is it! Unfortunately Big Bang was filming on a closed set on our day there but they let you on set if no one is there! All in all we loved this tour. This is Part 1 of 3 series. There were 2 more parts to this tour & I'm excited to share those with you soon!

Disney's Pecos Bill Cafe at Magic Kingdom Review

Disney Pecos Bill Cafe at Magic Kingdom Review 





I have to be honest I was a little afraid to try this place. The last time I was here was in 2000. You can find Pecos Bill at Magic Kingdom Park in Frontierland. The menu has since been completely overhauled into a Chipotle basically. I wasn't very hungry when we stopped for lunch so I just ordered off of the kid's menu. It was very crowded but the line went by fast and we were lucky enough to find a seat right away. 










Marsh chose beef nachos and was impressed with the fresh fixin's bar and fresh guacamole. 

I wasn't that hungry & don't care for Mexican food so chose the Mac & cheese kid's meal. :) It was WAY better than my expectations were. I also got a bottle of water, grapes, & carrots included in that price! My cheapest meal our whole trip! 






My husband surprised me & ordered mini churros as well. 



I personally didn't care for the churros & I thought the chocolate sauce was gross but my husband loved them? :)

I would go here again in a heartbeat! That mac & cheese is a HUGE selling point to me! It wasn't to little but not too much either! My husband said this is one of his fave Disney fast food places now!

Walt Disney Hometown Main Street USA

Walt Disney Hometown Main Street USA 


I was lucky enough to visit Marceline this past fall. I have always dreamed of visiting Walt's hometown & it WAS a dream come true! ;) Marceline is exactly two hours from Kansas City. If you ever visit the Walt Disney Hometown Museum they will give you a map to all of the local things to do in town. This is a TINY town reminded me of Mayberry. The only places to eat at were Sonic, a sandwich shop, & one other restaurant on the actual Main street. The diner that used to be on Main Street was sadly out of business.

We parked at the closest end so we could enjoy walking around. We probably took an hour to hour & half walking around Main Street. We first walked up to a few "antique stores" but it was a facade like you would see on Main Street at WDW or Disneyland?! I was VERY disappointed that they were not real working stores. A lot of the store fronts were like that sadly or had nothing in them at all. Here is a pic of the "antique store."



They actually had a lot of cute Disney collectibles that I wanted to buy! 

We ate at the only ice cream shop in town besides Sonic & it was a great little shop. I will publish a separate review soon! 

As we were walking by I wanted my picture with the iconic Main Street USA Mickey Mouse sign they have there. After my husband took my picture a lady working at the bank right next to it came outside & offered to take a picture of us both! That is one thing I can say about Marceline is that EVERYONE is so proud of Walt & loves telling their stories about him. I didn't sense that anyone was bitter or annoyed with the Disney presence in town or the tourists. Everyone was so helpful & amazing!



We learned on our Walt Disney Hometown Museum Tour that Walt was a young boy & witnessed  the Coca Cola sign being painted on the Zurcher's building! This was his inspiration for Coke Corner at Disneyland. As the years went by the building became apartments and were lost in a fire in 2002. The fire exposed the old Coca cola painted sign that the building had been missing for YEARS! In November 2015 Corporate Coca Cola company sent a painter to come out to Marceline to recreate the sign! They estimate the original was painted in 1906 the same year that Walt moved there! I love hearing stories like these!

There is an old theatre on Main Street but I will blog in detail about that on another day. ;) 


One of the stores was a radio station with a guy talking live radio. He waved to us as we walked by. :)  We seemed to be the only tourists that day but everyone was so nice & warm to us! Back in DC you do NOT find that very often! 


This was yet another empty store front

They have a train & caboose on Main Street as well. You can actually climb on the Caboose. 



There was a hardware store, toy store, & a few consignment stores but that was about it besides the ice cream shop. I highly recommend a visit here if you can swing by!

Disney's Anandapur Ice Cream Truck Review...

Disney's Anandapur Ice Cream Truck Review



You can find the Anandpur Ice Cream truck at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park in Asia. The line was long but went by fast. It was unusually busy the day we came to the park PLUS hot!


My husband & I both decided on a cone. He chose vanilla while I got chocolate. There is nothing better on a hot day than this! We were going to a big dinner that night so didn't want to fill up on lunch so this was our lunch. ;) 


I always have to get soft serve somewhere while at Disney & this hit the spot. It isn't overly amazing but it got the job done. ;)
