Thanks for the info.  I'm super familiar with Disneyland, the park should be pretty empty and it will be just me.  I think I'll hit DCA when it opens at 10am, ride Tower and Screamin' at least one more time each, then leave by noon to head to the studio (like I said, I already have the pass so no worries about it being so short).  That should get me there in plenty of time to match your schedule.

Thanks again!

I had a guaranteed ticket when I went in March, so I spent the morning doing stuff like the Walk of Fame and the WB tour.  I think I headed over to the studio around 3:00-3:30ish.  The other factor about when you arrive is your position in line among the other guaranteed ticket holders.  Where you are in line affects where you sit.  I think they fill up the audience front to back, but starting on the left side of the audience.  There's no way to guarantee where you'll end up, but that's just an FYI, if that sort of thing matters.

I don't think any of the seats is necessarily bad, because whatever you can't see directly will be up on the monitors.

Have fun!

Ok... I thought tickets for 2/2/2016 was not supposed to be up until tomorrow morning? Apparently they're up already... I just checked and now they're gone.

And it says "THIS TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE ADMISSION TO THE STUDIO. TICKET HOLDERS ARE ADMITTED ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS AS SPACE ALLOWS." in my email, does it mean it's not a guaranteed ticket?

Also does it mean at tomorrow morning there will be tickets for 917?

No it's still a guaranteed ticket.

That just means that if you show up late and they give your seat away to a standby ticketholder, you can't just wave your ticket and kick someone out to get your seat back. If you follow the rules on the ticket, you are basically guaranteed entry. They just have to cover their butts if something goes wrong, they don't want to make any promises and have people get angry. It is a guaranteed ticket in terms of guaranteed versus standby, but they just mean don't show up at 6 pm and claim you're guaranteed a seat.

I'm not sure why tickets went up this early. Today would be 30 days before, so it should go up on Monday since they don't count weekends. Maybe they're doing that now? Does anyone know what time/day they went up, was it today (Sunday)? If so, maybe they're doing a strict 30 days before the taping and not bothering with weekdays anymore.

Thank you so much for the info.

I went on the website by accident today and was very surprised to see there were tickets for 2/2. The tickets were gone immediately after I submitted my order though.

Also could you help me with one more question? I noticed that they don't have facilities provided to hold or store our personal properties. The problem is that I don't have a car so I really need my cellphone to book a taxi or uber to go home when the taping ends. Am I gonna be shut outside the studio directly if I have a phone with me or do they sort of "collect" things like cellphones beforehand and give them back to us afterwards?

Hello I'm new here. I have a question. How many tickets are you allowed to order for one taping?

Welcome to the boards! When ordering tickets for BBT, you can only order one ticket at a time (bummer I know!) you have to put in the information for each person in your party separately.

Question for you awesome prior-attendees:  the hotel I'm staying at is almost an hour away from the studio.  If I wanted to go somewhere just after the taping to do a quick taping report write-up or get on chat with you guys, do you have any suggestions for a good, close restaurant where I could get wi-fi and a snack while I do so?

Hi all, I'm in NZ and I'm about to book tickets for flights to LA specifically to come to a BBT taping. I'm planning on booking for October 23-27 to attend a (probable) taping on the 25th.

Is it likely that that date will be a non taping day? I can book other times in October, but I need I book them now to get the best prices.

Does anyone know of any reason why they might not tape October 25th?

2/9 seats are up. But I can't get through. It said "timeout error" everytime I tried to submit my order...

-------------------------------

Now they're gone...

I had the same problem. No ticket for me.

When I tried to get tickets for tomorrow's taping I was getting the same error, but when I sent an email to Audiences Unlimited they said my name was on their guaranteed list. Why don't you try sending them an e-mail too?

It's up again! I got in this time. If you want you can try again.

I missed it even though I've been refreshing, but another very nice person submitted for me, so I'll see you there! Happy 200!

So I have a question...If the ticket doesn't show "standby" when I order them, it is a guranteed ticket, right?

yes. Technically you can still get bumped for a VIP, but I've only ever heard of it happening once.
