    I am looking at the iota site now and it is showing “coming soon” NOT sold out or join waitlist. What do you think that means?

  2. Eunice Vives says

    How is anyone getting on the waitlist when I have been checking this this website for weeks and all it says is Coming soon?

  3. Allan says

    I can’t get past the coming soon notice for tickets to the Disney World Tapings. Is there something I am missing?

  4. Sue says

    I am on the waitlist. When will the tickets be released? I hope they let us know soon because I have to request time off from work!

  5. Julie Leff says

    I’ve requested The Chew tickets, but have not heard yet. I would have to fly to Florida from Wisconsin to attend taping. Has anyone received confirmation of show tickets yet???

  6. Sue says

    I read this on the iota site

    If tickets are available for the show you requested, you will be contacted approximately one-two weeks prior to the show by email. Not all ticket requests can be honored, and we will contact you only if your ticket request has been approved. Please note that from time-to-time, last minute tickets may become available and we may contact you closer to the show date you requested.

    Hopefully we’ll hear something soon! Good luck : )
