Checking Out The View From Disney Studios
UPDATE: Tickets are no longer available for the Walt Disney Studios tapings, but see here for a related contest.
The LA Times is reporting that The View will be broadcasting from the Disney Studios in Burbank, CA the week of March 9.
The inspiration for the location came from executive producer Bill Geddie who accompanied Barbara Walters when she was honored with a Disney Legends Award. The article cites Geddie as being enamored by the Disney Studio’s Legends Plaza (see image on left) which faces the seven dwarfs adorning the Michael D. Eisner building and holds replicas of the famous Disney statues Partners and Sharing the Magic in addition to a giant sculpture of the Disney Legends award itself. Plaques containing the names of Disney Legends cover the plaza’s columns.
Along with scheduled guests such as Miley Cyrus, Sally Field, Jimmy Kimmel, Eva Longoria Parker and Jay Leno, the show also plans to make full use of its host and explore the facilities and history of the studios, particularly in way of animation (the Walt Disney Animation Studios are actually in a complex across the road from the Studios). For ticket information, see this page on ABC.com.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Studios within the past year, so look for additional photos and information to come soon.
