Remember when the TV show Friends was all anyone could talk about in the 90s and early 2000s, and again recently when all 10 seasons became available on Netflix? Clearly, it’s a crowd-pleaser and a great way to connect with your family of millennials, teens and, well, friends.

 

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood can help you get even closer to the show with the Friends-loving friends in your life. Celebrate the holidays with a “friendsgiving” at the famous studio.

 

The holiday-themed event, Friendsgiving offers fans of all ages a one-of-a-kind Friends experience on the lot where it all began. Visit the “city” streets where friends Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Ross, Chandler and Joey frequented with fellow super fans.

 

The 90-minute tour includes Friends-centric everything, from the show’s iconic filming locations and backlot visits to Stage 24, also known as the Friends Stage. Guests will see the “Central Park” location where Rachel and Phoebe gave jogging the old college try — all while testing their knowledge of the show with trivia games.

 

What would a Friends tour be without a visit to Central Perk? Guests venture to the real coffee-shop set that hosted so many scenes between the famous friends, complete with the orange couch. Take a seat, take a picture and feel like one of the gang.

 

Get a look at the costumes and load up on your own merch. After all, it’s the holidays! At the end of the Friendsgiving tour (and any tour, for that matter) guests conclude in the gift shop of the WB Studio Store with exclusive Friends 25th Anniversary merchandise. Yes, it has been 25 years.

 

Just for this one special occasion, the iconic fountain from the show’s opening credits will be moved from the Warner Bros. Ranch facility to the main lot. Guests of the Friendsgiving tour can even grab an umbrella and recreate the show’s opening credits.

 

Friendsgiving keeps going with a holiday meal at the Studio’s Commissary Fine Dining room. Once where the cast typically dined during filming, the room will host fans for an executive chef-prepared, holiday-themed meal, including turkey, ham, vegan and gluten-free options, and all the holiday fixings. Sip holiday-themed drinks, included in the tour, with wine and beer available for purchase.

 

Tours are available during select days in November for $139 per person. Read more about ticket information and tour inclusions here.
