    They closed off big sections for the filming of "Modern Family" on one of the most busiest days. Also they don't want modern people to be seen in the park that takes place during the 60's.

      Yeah I guess having people with Iphone 5's in the background of a movie that takes place in the 60s wont really work to well. :lol:

          At the end of the movie there will probably be a sentence on the screen noting that he died a year or two later in 1966 from lung cancer. This film will save
          more lives than deaths caused by Jenny McCarthy and Tom Cruise combined. Have any of you thought of Walt Disney when you were deciding whether or not to smoke? I did and then I didn't smoke.

          Yeah, that's off track about Cruise and McCarthy, but if one person is saved because he or she received a vaccine or medication to fight depression, it will have been worth being a little obnoxious.)

              Plus Disney is keeping tight wraps on Tom Hanks as Mr. Disney and don't want anything leaked until the movie comes out. So don't except him to come out and greet people. From what I hear all filming locations are near the backstage area so they can sneak Tom Hanks in and out.
              Thanks, Basil! You may have saved some Tom Hanks and/or Walt Disney fans a disappointing trip to Disneyland, though being at Disneyland would be unbeatable consolation.

              I hope that Tom Hanks will walk around the park after shooting is done on the second day and pose for photos, especially in Frontierland and on Main Street. Posing with fans in front of the castle could cause a Walt-mania mob scene and it doesn't have the cast members'-only backstage areas that are all over Main Street if the crowds get too big.

              Photos of Hanks as Disney could be worth literally millions of dollars of free publicity for this movie if the photos were picked up by magazines. I really hope that Hanks and Disney's marketers are smart enough to do this. With all the excitement over that actor in a Superman costume or as Ann H. as Catwoman, I bet there is some free publicity planned. He doesn't have to look exactly like Walt, he just has to radiate genius and an unequalled bond with America's great middle class. If Hanks just spent a couple hours freaking people out at Disneyland he'd have enough funny anecdotes for the entire press tour of this film. (Can you tell that I enjoyed an entertainment marketing class I took at USC?)

              How creepy and cool would it be if he waved out from a window above the fire station? The might get some hits on Youtube.

              It would be interesting (for me) to see a photo of Hanks as Walt framed in some Main Street store, or maybe among that collection of celebrities at Disneyland at the Disneyland Hotel. The two-time Oscar winner would fit right in.

              The Disney gallery could have an exhibit of the art involved in this movie before and soon after the movie opens, maybe with making of videos that could be included on the DVD/Blue Ray release.

              Just curious, does anyone besides the great Mr. Wiggins read my long posts?

                I will also say that Carnation Cafe, other areas of Main Street, and some areas of Fantasyland will be blocked off for filming.

                    Well, two of us at any rate.

                    Maybe "Walt" could climb into the Haunted Mansion and surprise guests with a warning about smoking and lung cancer? On the other hand, we already saw that SNL sketch with Hanks in the haunted ride and I suspect we all know how THAT'S going to turn out!

                    ...but yeah, peeking out of the firehouse window. Wow. That's be a great shot. I'd set that as desktop wallpaper.

                              So they chose to film this on Nov. 7 & 8.
                              Election day and the following day when the results are studied quietly by Americans and their press.

                                The movie probably could get away with Carnation Cafe, but Fantaslyand looks nothing like it did in Walt's day. How are they going to get away with that?

                                  Might just be filming around Small World/Matterhorn/Alice in Wonderland area

                                    All those rides have changes since 1961. What about safety rails at Alice, Small World is having its holiday overlay installed, and the Matterhorn has its new bobsleds. Well maybe they could digitally cut out some of some of it and keep the camera out of the way of the track. We'll have to wait and see I suppose.

                                      The truth of the matter is that the majority of people watching this movie won't even notice or care whether or not the places he's shown are authentically 1961. It would be nice if they chose the places that still remain mostly true to how they appeared in 1961, but if they want to show him in front of Dumbo or the teacups (classic, instantly recognizable Disney park icons), they're going to do it, history be damned. I doubt they'll even bother to digitally alter them.

                                          They probably won't bother changing relatively minor aspects of certain things like the Matterhorn bobsleds. Even in That Thing You Do IIRC the bobsleds were at their 1990s configuration.

                                          However I don't see them filming too much in Fantasyland itself. For example Pinocchio wasn't even open in Walt's day, and the facades of everything else just didn't exist back then.
