W’re looking at a handful of shows that shot episodes either there or at its successor, Disney World.
2015 was a huge year for Disney fans, as Walt Disney’s very first theme park opened 60 years ago. Disneyland was a huge success, and that success went on to spawn even more theme parks around the globe. Today there are a total of 12, soon to be 13, parks in the U.S., China, Japan and Europe.
A lot of TV shows have taken their characters to a Disney theme park over the past 60 years, and although most of them actually went to Walt Disney World, we’re including all of them because without Disneyland none of the others would be here today!
Which of these shows did you watch?
The plot: The Tanner family went on a vacation to Walt Disney World because Uncle Jesse actually got a gig with his band to play at the theme park. In the episode Michelle manages to pull the sword from the stone and is selected as the “Princess of the Day,” which definitely ended up going to her head.
‘Boy Meets World’
The plot: In this visit, Topanga was the only one who actually won a trip to Disney World because she won a science competition. But since Corey wanted to win her back he takes Shawn with him to go and convince Topanga to be with him, which led to the iconic kiss in front of the EPCOT fountain.
‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’
The plot: Quite possibly our favorite ’90s trip to Disney World, Sabrina and her science class go on a field trip to the Florida parks. Specifically, she goes to Animal Kingdom which had just opened that year. Of course, Sabrina’s magic causes a ruckus and she’s forced to search the park for the plants she needs for a potion to fix the commotion.
The plot: Just a few months before Corey and Shawn went to Disney World, the entire cast of Rosanne took a vacation there. The trip gave them problems because Roseanne’s family isn’t exactly a fully functional, happy group.
The most recent TV show to go to Disney, the cast of Modern Family actually went to Disneyland instead of Disney World. In the episode Dylan is desperately trying to get Haley back, much like Corey was trying to get Topanga back in Disney World. In Modern Family, Dylan tried blending in, joining the ranks of the Dapper Dans as well as the costumed characters in the park.
