However, the best part of seeing him was the fact that he had this huge posse (most of whom were even more tattooed and pierced than he is) including his teenage son. Despite the fact that his dad is a celebrity (and pretty hip imho) Guy could NOT convince his son to go on the ride with him. It was one of those funny father/son moments and it was refreshing to see that even celebrities are just dad (or mom) to their kids.
You know, I always hear about people seeing Guy at DLR - even aside from this taping weekend last year - but I never hear about who he is with, other than his young son. So I am glad you mentioned this, that he travels with a huge, tattoed, pierced posse!!! I always had this image that people are seeing him just leisurely strolling through DCA, with young'un in tow and no one bothering him. So he is getting a little bit of 'plaid treatment.'

Why did his teenage son not want to go on TSMM? Could you hear the conversation? Did he just think it was lame or only for kids? He doesn't know what he is missing! He should have gotten on that ride because it is soooo much fun, and there are other people waiting 40 minutes to ride it (like yours truly, just a couple of weeks ago)!

His son wanted to ride, just not with his dad. Remember, when you are a teen or tween, it's not cool to be with your dad--even if your dad is cool! So, one of the other guys that was with him rode with Guy and his son rode with someone else.

From what I have seen and heard, Guy is in the parks a lot and really enjoys being there, but he travels with a group and always has a VIP guide with him.

Meanwhile, my husband literally ran into Keegan Gerhard from food network this past spring during the F&W fest. We had just finished eating dinner at WCT and Keegan was coming down the steps from the upper part (where the other restaurant used to be) and the two of them nearly collided. We said hi, but didn't ask for pics and/or autographs, although we watched as a few other people came up to him and he was very accomodating.

Oh, okay, I get it! Yes, when you are a tween or teen, it is not cool to be seen with any parent, anywhere, at any time!! They will only embarrass you! At least he didn't miss out on the great ride, though! But it IS very amusing that his seemingly hip, fun and cool dad is too uncool to ride with!

I know exactly which steps you are talking about by WCT, where your husband and Keegan almost ran into each other, and I have seen one or two people nearly collide. It would be fun to almost run into a celebrity, though!

There are lots of them, but these are some of the better ones I have seen:

Disney's Best Kept Secret - Travel Channel

Unwrapped - Walt Disney World Resort - Food Network

Disney: On a Dime - Travel Channel

Season of Disney: Disney Splurge! - Travel Channel

Samantha Brown's Disney Favs - Travel Channel (features some DLR-footage and info)

Behind the Bash - Disney's Anniversary Blowout - Food Network

Holidays at Walt Disney Resort (features all the food decorations and displays around WDW) - Food Network - Hosted by Raven Symone

Disney Holiday Magic/Samantha Brown - Travel Channel (features footage and mentions of DLR-holiday attractions/events, but is mainly WDW-based)

Undiscovered Walt Disney World - Travel Channel

Ultimate Walt Disney World - Travel Channel

Fan's Guide: Walt Disney World - Travel Channel

Disney's Animal Kingdom - Travel Channel

Disney Cruise Line - Travel Channel

Walt Disney World Resort - Travel Channel

Disneyland Resort: Behind the Magic (I think it was Behind the Magic; it might have been Behind the Scenes!) - Travel Channel


Into the Fire - Disneyland - Food Network (all about dining at DLR)


Great Hotels - Samantha Brown - Disney's Grand Californian Hotel - Travel Channel


__________________________________________________ ______

Samantha Brown did a whole series called "Great Hotels" for Travel Channel, and aside from the one episode which featured the Grand Californian, several other episodes featured WDW hotels such as Animal Kingdom Lodge, Grand Floridian, Yacht and Beach Club, etc.

Also, there have been various shows about Disney weddings & celebrations at WDW on the Travel Channel, Food Network and on the WE network. Many of the Food Network's Food Network Challenge shows focus on making various Disney cakes. One whole episode of Dinner: Impossible was filmed around WDW>


If anyone knows of any other Disney-related shows (especially DLR-specific) we can add to this list, please post!!
Thank you Sherry!!!!

Another one was Modern Marvels Disney World on the History Channel. They sell the DVD at the parks but you can find the entire program in 10 or so parts on youtube

Thank you for bumping this! You read my mind! I was just thinking the same thing when I checked the menu in my cable guide and saw the show listed. I got so excited! I hit the Record button right away so I won't risk forgetting to do it later. It is set! I can't wait!
