Both the Daily Mail and the Mirror have gotten a sneak peak at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour and along with including some new images of the tour, their articles describe what fans can expect. Both articles describe the experience of getting to ride on a broomstick in front of a green screen. The articles give insight into what the souvenirs will cost (£2.95 for butterbeer, £24.95 for a house scarf, £24.95 for a broomstick) and the Mirror gives us a look at what the souvenir shop at the end of the tour will look like.

As for the Tour itself, the Mirror gives a play by play on how the Tour is laid out so if you're keen on remaining unspoiled do not read.

You can read the Daily Mail article here and the Mirror article here. The Warner Bros. Studio Tour will open on March 31st.

Been there and it is amazing butter beer is better than in Florida and I have got 72 photos of my own including right outside Quality Quidditch Supplies where in the first film harry hears other youngsters say “wow it’s the fastest model yet” the cupboard under the stairs, the doors into the great hall then inside the great hall where there are many of the main cast costumes then the tower bedroom you get the idea. There are so many items displayed and I suppose each will bring back different memories to the individual visitor and you can spend as long or as short a time as you like at each, oh and I bought a giant mug with marauders map motif that costs £9.95.

Hey trumpfman sounds really cool! I’m going on the 31st and I’m so excited. Just one question: did they sell copies of “Page to Screen” in the gift shop? I know you can buy it online (and probably for a lot less money) but I kind of wanted to have my copy from the studio itself.

I did not see any copies of “Page to Screen” the only literature on sale that I saw were the official guide books and the novels in hardback as well as the venues own photographs, as you go around the attractions you need to look out for the embossing points for paper articles, as I said above you can spend as long as you want at each part of the tour but only ONE time around. When I bought the mug the staff told me that they did not have the full range of merchandise in the shop that will be available when you go although they were well stocked with clothing. I hope you have a really great time.

Thanks Trumpfan. Now that you mention the guide book, it kind of makes sense that they wouldn’t sell Page to Screen as it would be competition to it. Perhaps they will get it in stock, but now I kind of doubt it.
What do you mean by Embossing Points?

Thank for the great tips, trumpfman. I didn’t know, you could only go round once. Not sure what you mean by ‘embossing points’ either. Something decorative? I guess I’ll see it in April, because I’ve booked my tickets \o/

PS I definitely want to try the butterbeer.

Tarana: You’ll enojoy the butterbeer I’m sure. I had it at the Wizarding World. If they have the option, get the frozen one, its much better. Not sure if they will have it like the do in WWOHP because the climate is not hot like in Florida!

Someone should bottle Butterbeer & sell it in stores!

Thanks, Lookatme_Always. I will keep that in mind.
I’d love to go to Florida as well, one day, but because I live in Europe, England is much closer by.

@Won_Two: Maybe, they will.

Btw, there is this candy in the Netherlands, made of butter and caramel, I think (called a ‘boterbabbelaar’). I’ve always imagined butterbeer tastes kind of like that (but in liquid form obviously). I wonder if I’m right.
