    Modern Family

    Does anyone know if the episode they filmed on February 29th going to air tomorrow night? The title is "The Last Walt" which makes me think it's the episode they filmed at Disneyland.

    Watched the show last night. It was OK, I'm not a regular viewer so take that FWIW. Highlights for me: seeing the Dappers Dans on their bike, recognized Frank & Eulus. On board ride footage of Dumbo & BTMR. And the inside of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, with a smattering of extras in the background.

    There is no corn dog cart in Fantasyland. And the giant Indy wait time sign cracked me up.

    Having the kid being in two different roles on the same shift? We won't even get started about him talking. I think that might be why they choose a rare character that I personally have never seen out and about in all my visits to break the no talking rule. It was a cute show with several glaring oops for those of us really familiar with the park. I love how he found her slippers at the BBB! Then putting his granddaughter in toddler heels to slow her down was really hilarious.

    I watched the show last night. I've seen it a couple of times but could never really get into it. The problem I had with the show is with camera angles. Modern Family is a show that has real actors performing a script. In general, the camera has to focus then actors performing their lines. If you stood where the camera is, just think of how much wider your field of view is. You take in so much more than the camera is able to show. So I constantly felt like my vision was being cut off. Now compare that to typical Disneyland Travel videos that are filmed from cranes and equipment that give you a much larger field of view. The park itself becomes the star. That being said, it was nice to see the old girl once again on network TV.

    DS and I watched it and couldn't stop pointing out the glaring oops (or oppses), LOL. Noticed the wait time sign right away, and the fact that they were using the fastpass line for IJ. Also that the people were coming out of the entrance queue for Splash. We definitely thought it the use of balloons in the hub scene was overkill and there was no way that kid could make it to Main Street and wait in the corn dog line in the amount of time shown

    But the best part of all was that DS and I were sitting in our PJs with our feet up wearing our huge Mickey plush slippers. When Jay pulled out those Minnie slippers for Gloria we both busted out laughing.
    Side note, I tried on the Minnie slippers and they are not nearly as comfy as the Mickey ones

    I love Modern Family but I've never felt any TV episode of a regular series did either DL or WDW justice when filmed there over the years.

    Loved the show. I love both Disney and Modern Family, so to see them together was marvelous. Even with the oopsies.

    Now in the Land of Lincoln!

    DW and I are avid watchers of the show and so we couldn't wait for the Disneyland episode. In the end we both thought it was one of the weaker episodes recently unfortunately. We thought there was so much potential but in the end I almost feel like Disney didn't want to mock themselves too much or something else in the writing but there were not really any moments (for us) that made us laugh hysterically like some other episodes. And I also felt the same way about all the oops. If it was Disney filming themselves, why the need to do all the mockups and stuff (like the HUGE wait sign for Indy?)

    The show is broadcast on ABC, but it's not produced by Disney. We were in the park the day they were filming, and they had standees of filming notices/releases in the various places they were shooting, and all the signs were from Twentieth Century Fox Television, who produce the show.
