Full Day Touring Guide

So you've decided to go to the Studios for the day and want the best way to do it? This is your guide to doing so. Planning a day, whether you use this guide or any at all, requires some sort of itinerary. If you don't, you're going to find yourself standing around, staring at a map and trying to see what doesn't have a 90 minute wait and everyone will agree to. This touring guide assumes you, and everyone in your party, is willing to experience everything in the park. People are finnicky so you should use this as a guide, and not as a commando raid guide. It's best to use this to just give you an idea of when to experience everything.
