Information For Attending A Big Bang Theory Taping

Hmmmmmmm, we may have to talk.  Nograv was there for a week, a couple of years ago.  We found a couple of hours and met at Downtown Disney...er Disney Springs is what it's called now.  It's about an hour and a half drive, that I'm more than willing to make, if we can find the time.   :shy:

Might be tricky. Don't fly in until after 5:30 pm on 20th and catching an 11 am flight out to New Orleans on 27th. Disney, universal and Kennedy dominate in between. If you don't mind a night drive, could meet up the first night - not that I've mentioned it to Mrs Itwas yet

I'm still waiting to find out my rehearsal schedule. Should get an updated one in the next two days.

I'm sorry, the 20th (the entire week for that matter) isn't good.  Were running the show every night, as our show opens on the 25th.  I really hate missing chances like this.  Anyway, hope you have a great time with your trip.

I'm on the 11 am STUDIO tour. Should I go straight to line up after tour ( I have GUARANTEEDs) or will I have time to get a quick lunch? Is the queue mainly hopeful standbys or are there just as many Guaranteeds lining up early to get a best possible central seat?

My recommendation is to get in line right away. Or one of you can get in line while the other grabs some lunch to go and brings it to the line. The tour is typically 3+ hours, which gets you out at about 2pm. It'll take you a good 20 minutes to walk to the line, which puts you there around 2:30. Every week is different, but I know the last taping I went to, I got in line around 1:30 and nearly everyone in front of me was guaranteed, not many standby. The thing is, you'll probably get in even if you show up around 3:30 or 4, but you're cutting it close to when standbys will start to take your place if AU staff don't see you there. If you can get your lunch to go and eat it in line, that's your safest bet.

@fitzsimmons, were you at the March 7 taping? There weren't many standbys in line that day.

Pretty much. I got a ticket for the finale last season and later received an email saying I was taken off the attendee list due to repeat attendance.

Oh wow, so they're really enforcing their 2 tapings per season limit? Interesting. I don't remember you going to a S10 taping though so I guess you should be fine?? *fingers crossed*

I haven't been to a taping since January 2016. So well over a year. No email yet so I guess i'm safe ;) 

Its been ok not having BBT tapings actually! It's nice to take a break and do some other things. Instead I went to several Muse gigs around Europe and Comic-con!.

Speaking of Muse gigs, did you ever see my link, with a Muse drum track?

I got standby tickets! This is a season finale however. Do you think I'll still get in with standby?

This is my first time trying. Thanks!
