It’s a tradition over at ABC. Its hit sit-coms all eventually visit either Walt Disney World or Disneyland. This season ABC’s critically acclaimed hit series “black-ish” will film on location at the Orlando parks. In the episode, titled “VIP,” Dre decides to take his entire family on the magical, first-class vacation experience he was never able to have as a kid.
“I’m excited to return to Walt Disney World, this time to film with my TV family of ‘black-ish’ in hopes of creating some of the same lasting memories I shared with my very own family when we visited the resort,” said two-time Emmy nominee Anthony Anderson, executive producer and star of “black-ish.”
“VIP” will feature the Johnson family visiting all four parks at Walt Disney World Resort: Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Jim Rash guest stars as Cody, the VIP tour guide that Dre hires to ensure his family has the most magical experience possible.
“black-ish” stars Anthony Anderson as Andre “Dre” Johnson, Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow Johnson, Laurence Fishburne as Pops, Yara Shahidi as Zoey Johnson, Marcus Scribner as Andre Johnson, Jr., Miles Brown as Jack Johnson, Marsai Martin as Diane Johnson, Jenifer Lewis as Ruby, Peter Mackenzie as Mr. Stevens.
“black-ish” was created by Kenya Barris and is executive produced by Barris, Jonathan Groff, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland, E. Brian Dobbins and Corey Nickerson. The series is produced by ABC Studios.
The episode is set to film this month and will air in the fall, so keep your eyes open if you’re heading out the parks. Who knows, you might show up in the background of one of the shots.
