ABC's daytime morning and talk shows went to Disneyland/Disney World so many times, it is almost obligatory. I did enjoy it when Regis & Kathie Lee and later Kelly Ripa traveled to Orlando or Anaheim. It was terrific. Of course, who can forget the ultimate Vacation movie at Wally World (Six Flags Magic Mountain). This was iconic.
Disney specials weren't what they used to be. There is no more Disney hour on Sunday.
My memory isn't so good with the sitcoms. I recalled The Roseanne Show went to Disney World. It wasn't that great.

Published: May 24, 2014 at 10:33 AMI'm a huge fan of The Brady Bunch Kings Island episode. It has become a theme park classic in its own right, and the footage they shot there is really the best document we have of what the park looked like at that time. It's hard to know now what other TV show will conjure that type of nostalgia 30 years down the road, but I know it won't be a morning talk show. For example, I love watching the old episodes of "The Wonderful World of Disney" where Walt basically promotes upcoming attractions at his park. I have a hard time believing that the vapid musings of "Good Morning America" will be of any interest down the road.
