Visit our ticketing site and click to purchase your desired digital meet & greet. Depending on the event, there could be options for one-on-one digital meet & greets as well as digital meet & greets between you and multiple guests.

4. Join Your Meet and Greet
Before your meet & greet time, pull up your confirmation email and click on “View Your Order Online“ to be brought to a confirmation webpage. When you scroll down to the “Your Order“ section, you will see a rectangle containing the meet & greet details. There will be a link there for you to click and gain access to the meet & greet.
Please note: Multiple fans have purchased digital meet & greets for the same day. This means that your meet & greet may not start at exactly the time on your ticket and you will wait in the lobby until your turn (This is a great time to grab a snack or take a bathroom break!). Not to worry – we have allowed enough time within these sessions for you to get the full experience and if you are not at your computer when we come to you, we will place you back in the waiting room.
5. Show Time
When your meet & greet starts, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and chat!
- Pick a quiet location to avoid distractions.
- Think of questions you want to ask ahead of time and write them down.
- Try to ask questions that have short answers.
- Be patient – remember there are others in line and that you’ll have to wait your turn.
- Express frustration with the process in the chat with the celebrity. They do their best to be accommodating of all fans.
- Ask inappropriate questions or do anything makes the other party feel uncomfortable in any way.
- Take pictures or recordings of the meet and greet. All celebrities feel differently about selfies and we ask that you respect their personal wishes. Allowances or restrictions will be specified on your ticket.
- If a celebrity allows selfies, ALWAYS ask before taking the photo.
6. Other Important Info
There will be a timer in the chat so you will know when your session time is coming to an end. Your session will be recorded and shared with you as a keepsake, but please let the admins know if you would prefer not to have the session recorded. If persons under 18 are present during a live session, they must be accompanied at all times by an adult. No profanity. No nudity.
A recording of the session will be available on the original confirmation page 3-5 business days after the meet & greet for you to view and download.
