    AFV Taping at MK

    Hi!

    I recently was lucky enough to be one of the 1200 "extras" for a taping of America's Funniest Home Videos at the Magic Kingdom. Best part was they brought us in three hours early and we got to play for free till taping time. Air date is May 19th- look for me- I will be one of the hundreds of dots behind Tom Bergerons right shoulder on Main Street! LOL!

    Anyway, a full report and link to a photo album is on my blog at http://iJud.blogspot.com It is a couple of entries down.
    [just corrected mistyped URL!]

    Further down is an earlier report on the Disneyana meet at Celebration also with a link to an album with more pics!

    Enjoy!

    Hi Jiminy,

    LOL! That was quick! But such is the life of the cricket, eh? You always were my favorite on WWoD!

    We did many takes of each show segment (B-oring!) and I have no idea what one they will use, but there is one at the opening, if they use *that* take, where over Toms right shoulder (viewers left) you may see a white dot waving back and forth- if so, that is my hat! So, maybe...

    Kinda like

    Hi "AP" Vixen,

    "Welcome Jud!"

    Thank you!

    "Awesome report. Sounded like lots of fun. Great pics too."

    Again, thank you. Both events were a lot of fun. I don't know how many of you have met Lou, but he is just the kind of person you would want to be an expert on Disney- very nice fellow!

    Photography has always been a bit of a hobby of mine and after 100+ visits to WDW, having pretty much memorized every ride, my main interest has become shooting there: it is a photographers paradise! In one of those albums linked through the blog is an album called "Day at Disney" I think and it has a couple of rather unique and fascinating shots. But on the night of the AFV taping *the* shot was the castle- first time I have seen it all done up in the 50th selebration layout and against the black night sky it was very magnificiant!

    Thanks for looking!



    Jud
