Yesterday’s taping of the Ellen DeGeneres Show at Universal Orlando was a good time, even if you didn’t have seats–like us! The weather was beautiful, the crowd was really into it, and even though Universal CityWalk was packed I didn’t feel like it was out of control.
From what I could tell everything went as planned. The only piece of news for me was that the audience switched out between show tapings. Many Universal Orlando multi-episode tapings use the same audience throughout the entire day of production. However, I suppose with the Ellen DeGeneres show is a bit different because it’s outside, and because it’s a one-time shot for the whole year.
As a non-ticket holder, there was very little of the actual show we could see in person. We only caught brief glimpses of Ellen in person. But there were jumbo-trons set up around CityWalk for viewing the show as it taped.
On the other hand, without a ticket we were still able to get in a very good position for the concerts back on the plaza stage. (If you want to see a map of the layout, click here–the Ellen Degeneres Show main stage is the “Universal CityWalk lagoon stage” and the concerts took place on the “Universal CityWalk concert stage” on the map.)
I also want to quickly point out that other than parking if you had a car, this entire event was free. We were entertained for hours, and all we spent was about 10 bucks for lunch and water.
Anyway, enough of me describing the event. If you want to read more details about the actual production, check out Dewayne Bevil’s post on the Theme Park Rangers blog. Or, you can view my original “upcoming events” post about the Ellen DeGeneres Show by clicking here. Now’s let’s get to my media.
