When I was growing up Boy Meets World was one of the shows that I loved to watch. The characters were relatable and the show didn’t shy away from dealing with important topics. I was pretty excited when I found out that there would be a show called Girl Meets World that would focus on Cory and Topanga’s daughter Riley Matthews. I was interested in learning how to get Girl Meets World tickets so that I could go to a taping and see some of my favorite Boy Meets World characters and find what the new show had to offer. However, I quickly learned just how popular these tickets were and how hard it would be to get a hold of some tickets.
How do you get Girl Meets World tickets? tvtickets.com releases tickets for shows like Girl Meets World and The Big Bang Theory. Tickets are released thirty days before an episode is set to be taped. Some shows will not run out of tickets until a few days before they tape or they don’t run out at all. But the popular shows will be filled up within minutes. If you are looking to get tickets to see a show you will want to make sure that you are on your computer before 8:00am-8:30am M-F PST. Some shows limit the number of tickets one person can get and this is the case for Girl Meets World. You can submit a new ticket request on behalf of other members of your group as long as you have their address and phone number because you will need to put that information in. My recommendation is to have the ticket order form up at 8:00am and just keep refreshing that every few minutes until the tickets are available.
When you go to a taping you need to stay until it is over so that you do not disrupt filming. Typically a taping beginning around 5:00pm will get out anywhere between 9:00-10:00pm on average. Sometimes it is earlier and sometimes it is later it depends on how things go. I would recommend that you bring snacks and if you want to bring snacks that come in wrappers take them out of the wrappers and put them into a ziplock bag. That way you won’t make any loud noises that would cause them to stop filming. When I was at the taping we were given a slice of pizza, a banana, and a water bottle. However, I have been to tapings where all we got was a fun size candy bar. In addition to coming prepared with food I would also encourage you to bring a jacket because sets get really hot due to all the lights so the air conditioner is typically very strong to help everything and everyone stay cool.
During the taping you will be expected to keep your phones in your pockets/purses because they do not want people tweeting about the episode or taking pictures of the set. If you don’t want to turn your phone off at least put it on silent so that you aren’t the reason that they have to call cut. You can get in a lot of trouble for that so make sure to behave. I have been to tapings where the cast does not interact with the fans after the taping and I have been to tapings where photos and autographs were given. Luckily Girl Meets World is a set where you have a great chance of getting several autographs and maybe even a picture or two. If you want autographs make sure to bring a sharpie and something for them to sign like maybe a season of Boy Meets World?
The episode that they shot when I was at the taping was the Christmas episode of the first season. It was around March to April when I went to the taping and the episode didn’t air until December so you get to see things way anyone else. Since the show had yet to be on air they played the pilot episode for us before the taping began. When the episode started Cory & Topanga were busying getting their apartment ready for the company that was coming for the holidays. Shawn Hunter, Mr. & Mrs. Matthews and Cory’s younger brother Josh all came to celebrate the holidays with them. If only Jack and Eric would have been there that day but it was still very cool to see some familiar faces from Boy Meets World. Being an audience member at a live taping is really cool because you get to see how the actors handle it when they forget a line or mess up. People on set are also listening to see how the audience responds to certain moments in the scene and they might realize that a joke isn’t working or something like that and decide to change the scene.
At the end of the taping the cast members were called out one by one to take a bow and then three of the child actors walked up to the audience area to sign autographs and Danielle and Ben came over to take pictures. Where you sit is raised up from the ground and unless you have a VIP pass you do not get to walk down on set. So if you want to try to get a picture or an autograph you need to make your way to the black bars which are in front of where you sit. And if you want a picture ask politely and hand your phone to the actors so that they can use it to take a selfie. I would have loved to have gotten a picture with Rider Strong who played Shawn Hunter but he did not come over for pictures. I hope this helps you should you decide to get tickets to a taping.
