It was just announced that Netflix has renewed Fuller House for a 5th season. The only downside for fans is that this will be the final season for the spin-off hit. However, the show has the benefit of knowing it is their final season which means they can wrap everything up nicely. Fans of Full House will remember that the show never had a true final episode since they did not know season eight would be the end.
How to Get Tickets to a Fuller House Taping
Is it true that you can get free tickets to a taping of Fuller House? You got it, dude! Fuller House tapes at Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank, California. You can get Fuller House tickets through a company called audiences unlimited. Tickets for shows are posted Monday through Friday between 8 am and 8:30 am pst. Fuller House tickets tend to run out within 1 to 20 minutes of being released. Seriously, sometimes tickets are gone within 60 seconds. And since this is going to be the final season expect the tickets to go insanely quick. Tickets are posted thirty days before the show is set to tape.
Here’s some helpful information that I have learned from getting Fuller House tickets myself. When you go to the website click on the 30-day schedule. Then click on any show to pull up an order form. The order form is the one you want to keep refreshing on your screen between 8 am to 8:30 am. On occasion, tickets will be posted late so don’t freak out if 8:30 comes and still no tickets are posted. Sometimes the tickets don’t get put up until 9 am. When the tickets finally become available in the dropbox this is the quickest way to get them.
For popular shows like Fuller House saving a couple of seconds can make it possible to get tickets for your whole party. Please note that you can only request one ticket at a time. If you do not have the contact information for all members of your group put your own address and email in the boxes. I have since learned that it is not required to provide your contact information but I would encourage you to do so because if taping times change you will be notified.
It is best to know ahead of time who you plan to bring with you because you will need to put their name on the ticket. However, in the faq section of the audiences unlimited website it does say that you can email them about changing the name. Just make sure to reach out to them about changing a name more than 24 hours before your taping date. Once your request has been processed you will see your ticket for the taping. If you are on your computer go ahead and print it out. If you are over 18 years of age they will want to see a valid photo id when you check-in.
Parking is free at the address listed on the tickets. The waiting area has benches, restrooms, and vending machines. You will be waiting inside the parking structure so you won’t be out in the sun. Update: if they are checking people in for a taping of Ellen, you will have to wait in the sun until they leave. If possible I highly encourage bringing snacks and something to entertain yourself. For the 6/21 taping, they loaded Ellen’s Game of Games audience into the benches. For a few hours, they had the Fuller House audience lined up in the parking garage before moving us outside. There was never any seats. If you can bring foldable chairs that you can later stash back in your car that would be a good idea.
If you arrive early enough and are feeling hungry I highly recommend the nearby Smokehouse Restaurant or the Dog Haus. Both are within walking distance of the parking structure.
How early should you plan on being there?
It is completely up to you but the tickets state that having a ticket does not guarantee that you will get in. You are admitted on a first come first serve basis. Invited guests of the cast are let into the taping first followed by general ticket holders and then the standby ticket holders if there are still available seats. The earlier you get there the better chance of you have of making sure that you get in. On 6/21 I arrived by 11:30 am and was number 32 in line. It was hard to tell how many people got in behind me due to all the VIPs.
Not everyone made it into the taping. Just remember that you are not guaranteed to get in and it is a first come first served set up with general tickets. Occasionally, they won’t let you park for Fuller House until 10 am. If that happens and you arrive earlier you can always move your car.
As the tapings get more and more popular fewer fans are able to get in. At some tapings, less than 10 fans were let in due to how big the VIP lists were. If you are unable to get into the taping the ticketing company will try to get you tickets to a future taping. However, if you are not local that doesn’t do much to help you. If you are traveling from far away for the taping I would encourage you to arrive as early as you can to help increase your odds of getting in.
If you don’t want to get there that early you can always try to win priority tickets from the Audiences Unlimited twitter account. My friends and I have had a lot of luck with this. However, even though the contest implies that the tickets are priority, they are considered the same as general tickets so they do not guarantee that you will make it into the taping. Be sure to arrive early to increase your chances of getting in. All that winning these tickets means is that you don’t have to request the tickets from the website.
Meeting the Cast Before A Taping
Since it is the final season the cast seems to be meeting more fans than usual. At least twice this season Jodie, Andrea, and Candace have come over to the parking garage to welcome the fans and give out hugs and photos. Please note that they are not always available to do this. It is wise to not expect it but be aware that it could happen. I was able to hug Andrea when the surprised us and made it on her vlog and instagram! They are truly such an amazing cast.

What To Expect at a Fuller House Taping
Unfortunately, cell phones and cameras are not allowed inside the taping. It is strongly encouraged by the audiences unlimited team for you to leave your phone in your car. However, for those who do not drive to the taping, they will hold on to your phone and id for you during the taping. They search your bags twice and make you walk through two metal detectors so there is no way to try to sneak one in.
For some reason they no longer allow fans to bring Full House or Fuller House DVDs or cast pictures inside the soundstage to try and get autographs. I was able to get two autographs but only on plain notebook paper. Always try & come prepared with something for them to sign and make sure to have a sharpie or a pen. Once the taping ends make your way to the front row to try and meet the cast. Please note that it is not always possible to meet the cast after the tapings but of course is always exciting when it happens.
Speaking of coming prepared it can get cold on sound stages since they want to try to keep the actors and equipment cool from the hot lights so it is recommended that you bring a jacket. Also, bring snacks because you will get hungry even if you eat a big meal beforehand. They do give you half a sandwich and a small water bottle which is better than nothing but still isn’t filling.
How long do the tapings last?
5 hours is pretty standard though one episode I watched last for seven hours. You are expected to stay the entire time so please don’t go to the taping if you have other plans that same night. The audience warm-up guy talks throughout the taping when they aren’t filming to keep everyone entertained. He can be really annoying but he gives out gift cards and sometimes autographed items so it can be worth it to listen to him.
I went to two tapings during the first season of Fuller House. The very first taping I went to had to be rescheduled so if you plan on flying in for the taping please know there is a chance it can be rescheduled. It was around 3:00 pm when I finally got to take a seat in the soundstage and I could hardly believe that I was about to watch a taping of Fuller House. I grew up watching Full House and it has been my favorite show for so many years and I would have never imagined that I would get the chance to come and see the first taping of its spin-off show.
If you get to go to a Fuller House taping I hope it is a dream come true like it was for me. If you have any questions about the taping or getting tickets please ask them below and I will answer as quickly as possible.
Interested in visiting the replica of the Tanner home on the Warner Bros Lot? Or curious to see the backlots where they’ve filmed scenes for the show? Consider taking the Warner Bros Studio tour.
