Deluxe Package holders will indulge in classic Southern comfort food in the Presley Motors and Cycles exhibits and then participate in a fun scavenger hunt through the exhibits after-hours and win prizes.

Graceland was once part of a 500-acre farm that was owned by the S.E. Toof family. The land had been part of the family for generations and was named after one of the female relatives, Grace. In 1939, Grace's niece and her husband built the mansion, which became well-known to the locals of Memphis. In the spring of 1957, when Elvis Presley was 22, he purchased the home and grounds for just over $100,000. Although Elvis had various homes in the Los Angeles area and spent a great deal of time on the road with his concerts, Graceland was always home base – a constant in the life of Elvis Presley.
