Films and Shows Filmed at Walt Disney World



The reboot of the Mickey Mouse Club from the 80’s-90’s was recorded in front of a live-studio audience at Disney’s MGM Studios. From Justin Timberlake to Britney Spears, there was no shortage of future superstars on the cast!


This live-action tv show was taped at Disney’s MGM Studios and ran from March 1992 to 1995. The show centred around characters based from the Alice in Wonderland world, but with a rollerblading White Rabbit…it was definitely a time-warp!


I still remember the episodes filmed at Walt Disney World, especially the one which had the kids become princesses in the Magic Kingdom for a day. Step back in time and see what’s changed between now and then…because “You Got it Dude!”


When Cory Matthews needed to win back Topanga, the best way to do that was to create little magic at Disney World! The scenes that stuck out included the dolphin interactions at The Living Seas pavilion and the dinner scene at The Coral Reef Restaurant, but the cast basically had the full run of the entire resort!

WAIT?! How can an animated movie be featured here? Well it’s actually a fun story! Lilo & Stich, Brother Bear, and Mulan were all produced at the animation studios at the former Disney’s MGM Studios. #FunFacts


It’s almost like each scene is a glimpse of the opening of Disney’s MGM Studios. From Vern’s house being on Residential Street, which was actually featured on the Studios Backlot Tour (prior to demolition in 2002) to many other filming locations…like the Orlando International Airport, this was a feature film that is set in a specific time and it’s awesome to go back. Just ignore the 38% rating on Rotten Tomatoes;)


Hulk Hogan…need I say more?


Starring George Clooney, this science-fiction mystery adventure film was actually filmed all over the place, including British Columbia and California, but some of the coolest scenes came from the Magic Kingdom. Let’s not really discuss the budget, because it made $209 million worldwide…against a total production & marketing cost of $330 million!

There are always new productions filming on property, so I’ll do my best to update this article as they come!
