“Wheel of Fortune” has always worked with Disney to showcase amazing Disney properties around the world. Several shows have been taped at Disneyland, Disney World, Aulani, on a Disney Cruise and even all the way to London and Ireland to take part in an Adventures by Disney vacation. It’s safe to say Pat Sajak and Vanna White are big fans of the Mouse just like us!
But… it’s “Wheel of Fortune’s” 35th Anniversary… and, Disney wanted to step it up a notch. And, so did Disney! Because, of all the places in the world the show could celebrate that milestone… they chose the Happiest. I’m so excited to share that beginning tonight, this week’s shows were filmed at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort!
Many broadcasts have been filmed at Disney over the years – but there’s never been one this big. Well over a year in the planning, over 175 members of the “Wheel” family, along with some extraordinary contestants, traveled across the country to join us for an amazing week of “Wheel” and Disney fun.
The holidays are officially underway, and we’re celebrating “Wheel”-style. In addition to some fantastic gameplay, you’re going to get a sneak peek into how we create Holiday Magic here at Walt Disney World – and, you’ll learn how you can Give the Gift of Disney this holiday season, as well. All of that, PLUS you’ll have a chance to win your very own Walt Disney World Vacation, and stay in a deluxe villa with the comforts of home at a Disney Vacation Club Resort – but you have to tune in to win!
Disney always loves to “lift the curtain” and a peek behind the scenes. In this article, you will see a few photos of when “Wheel of Fortune” filmed all over the Resort. Above is Pat discussing a set up at an early morning shoot at Pandora in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. At the top is Pat and Vanna on the spectacular set, accompanied by a couple of familiar friends. Also above is a fantastic shot of Pat and Vanna surrounded by some truly spectacular décor. (Who knows? Maybe this will be their Holiday card this year?)
The fun starts tonight… and lasts all week. Don’t forget to check your local listings for time and channel, so you don’t miss any of the fun.
Oh… one last thing. Don’t tell anyone… but this may not be the only week of “Wheel” you’ll be hearing about from Disney. There’s a LOT more “Wheel” fun ahead in 2018!
I think I’ll buy a vowel!
