DWDads are not regular watchers of “the View” on ABC, but this week we have had a good reason for tuning in. All week, November 18-22, ABC’s “the View” has been broadcasting LIVE at 11am eastern or 10am central/pacific from The Disneyland Resort with a variety of guests and entertainers in order to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 85th birthday (November 18). Although all of the programming on “the View” was in some way linked to ABC/Disney this week, the espisode I am looking forward to seeing most, is on Friday, November 22nd.
Fri., Nov. 22: Kurt Russell, who had a 10 year contract in the 1970s with the Walt Disney Company, takes Barbara Walters on a magical walk in Walt Disney’s footsteps as they take a “step in time” into the past and tour never-before-seen places including Disney’s private apartment and a private club. Music sensation Pitbull appears. Singer and co-host Demi Lovato performs. The hosts bid farewell to the Disneyland Resort during a magical finale celebration.
Since the show hasn’t aired, I can only assume Barbara will document the highlights of a tour that is offered daily at Disneyland called “A Walk in Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps”. This 3½-hour guided tour covers the life of Walt Disney and how his vision became reality. Basically, this tour tells you stories about the man behind the magic and you will learn some behind-the-scenes secrets to the theme of the various lands, and special touches by the Imagineers and Walt himself. This show might give you a taste of what that tour has to offer or it may leave you wanting the to experience it on your own. So if you want to book this tour as part of your Disneyland vacation or you would like a quote please contact us.
