We’ll start our day with a breakfast buffet before setting out on one of three adventures – the choice is yours!
OPTION 1: Enjoy a full day on Catalina Island, a picture-perfect paradise and a world apart from the hustle and bustle of the mainland just twenty-two miles away. The air is refreshing, the water is clear, the community is casual and friendly, and there’s not one traffic light on the whole island. From the city of Avalon to the rustic village of Two Harbors, experience the island at your leisure. Explore the rugged back country where the bison roam, enjoy unique dining experiences, conquer the rush of thrilling adventures, relax on the sand with the gentle rhythm of the ocean, or do some shopping in the eclectic selection of stores. We’ll give you a map and directions to show you all the possibilities!
OPTION 2: Head to Hollywood and the famed Warner Brothers for a studio tour that brings you closer than ever to the entertainment you know and love. Get ready to experience one of the busiest movie studios in LA as you explore the iconic backlots, DC Universe: The Exhibit, and original Batmobiles. Plus, you will view one of the many sound stages where today's hottest TV shows and movies are made. With actual filming happening all around you, no two Warner Brothers tours are ever alike! For the grand finale of your studio tour experience you will visit Stage 48: Script to Screen. This interactive soundstage explores key phases of the entertainment production process. From the Central Perk set to riding a broomstick like Harry Potter during a green screen experience, this self-guided portion of the tour offers a truly immersive look at how the magic of Hollywood is made. Following the tour, we'll take you around some of the famous drives of Hollywood before returning to the hotel.
OPTION 3: Get ready for a full day of exploring one of the best theme parks in LA – Universal Studios. You'll find a full day of action-packed entertainment all in one place: thrilling theme park rides and shows, a working movie studio, and Los Angeles' best shops, restaurants and cinemas at CityWalk. Universal Studios Hollywood is a unique experience that's fun for any age. You will have the day to explore on your own. This option requires an additional $40 for basic admission. Other areas of the park require additional fees but we will give you all the details before you set out on your adventure!
Upon everyone’s return to the hotel, we’ll freshen up for a special evening spent celebrating the new year with elegant dining, dancing to a live band, and the fun of a Monte Carlo-style casino. There will be hats, party favors, a drawing for exciting prizes and a champagne toast to ring in 2019!
