Will we have to wait in a long line to see the characters?

The experience is designed to minimize wait times. This includes dividing ticketholders into pre-determined groups to go on stage at specific times. When not on stage, off-stage activities allow for convenient viewing of the continuing on-stage experience of other groups. Due to the interactive nature of the experience, a short wait time may occur periodically.

Where does the meet & greet experience take place?

The meet & greets take place in the same venue as the main show—both on stage and at floor level.

How long is the meet & greet experience?

The meet & greet including time on stage visiting Sesame Street and off-stage activities is approximately 30 minutes.

How long will the entire experience last if we attend both the meet & greet and the actual show?

The combined times of the meet & greet, the 30-minute break between the end of the meet & greet and the beginning of the main show, and the main show is 150 minutes. The main show includes a 15-minute intermission between Acts I and II

How much earlier before the show do I need to arrive?

Doors into the venue open for the meet & greet 60 mins (1 hr ) prior to the time of the main show. We suggest arriving early to allow time for parking and walking to/entering the venue without feeling hurried.

Will latecomers be admitted?

Though we strongly encourage ticketholders to arrive early or on time, Latecomers will be admitted, however, they may not have time to fully enjoy all activities.​

​​​​​​What do I do in between the meet & greet experience and the actual show? Can we get to our seats, buy food, etc.?

There will be 30 minutes between the end of the meet & greets and the beginning of the main show. During that time, you are free to use the restrooms, buy food and merchandise and access your seats. Remember to bring your tickets with you if you leave the meet & greet so you can be re-admitted.

Is there ADA access available for the meet & greet?

Please contact Feld Customer Service to determine whether there is ADA assistance for the pre-show experience in your venue. By phone, call (800) 844-3545, or email [email protected].

How many spots are available for the meet & greet opportunity?

To ensure the best time for all families attending, only 100 tickets will be sold to each meet & greet experience. This includes adults and children

I do not see an option to buy tickets to the meet & greet prior to the main show on the day/time I want to purchase tickets – does this mean the meet & greet is sold-out?

When the meet & greet is not offered prior to the main showtime, either the limited number of tickets has sold out or a meet & greet is not scheduled to occur before the main show on that particular day/time

Do I need a show ticket in order to purchase a meet & greet ticket?

Yes, you must first purchase a main show ticket for each guest before you can purchase a meet & greet ticket.

What if only some people from my party are interested in attending the meet & greet?

Your entire party is not required to buy a meet & greet ticket if only some want to attend. However, all children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult during the meet & greet.

Do I have to buy meet & greet tickets at the same time as when I buy tickets to the main show or can I decide later?

The highly exclusive nature of the meet & greet is certain to sell out much sooner than the main show. Although purchasing main show tickets is a requirement to purchase tickets to the meet & greet, purchasing meet & greet tickets when main show tickets are purchased is not required. However, there are no guarantee tickets to the meet & greet will be available at a later time if not purchased with main show tickets when they are available.

Can I buy tickets to the meet & greet on-site, at the venue’s box office?

In the event tickets remain for the meet & greet, tickets can be purchased at the venue’s box office. However, if the meet & greet is sold out, tickets will not be available to purchase at the venue’s box office.
