    Question "That Thing You Do!" "Marvin's Room" and other films at Disney Parks

    Marvin's Room was on HBO the other night (it has a long sequence at WDW in Orlando.) It got me wondering what other films have been shot at Disney parks.

    I know That Thing You Do! had a scene at DL featuring the Matterhorn.

    Can anyone think of any other mainstream films (not promtional specials or TV shows) that had scenes at a Disney park?

    Here is IMDB's listing of things filmed on location at Disneyland:
    http://www.imdb.com/List?endings=on&...ifornia,%20USA

    It includes all the promo stuff too and probably is complete but at least it's a start.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Awesome! I didn't even know you could search "filming locations" on IMDB. I think I will have to find 40 Pounds of Trouble (1962). It's a Tony Curtis film that aparantly spends a significant amount of time at Disneyland.

    Although not really filmed at Disneyland or even called Disneyland in the movie "Escape from L.A." Had what was supposed to be DL after an earthquake makes the Los Angeles area an island that gets turned into a Penal Colony. It's a really bad resemblance of the park.

    40 Pounds of Trouble is a so-so film. It has a wacky chase through the park if I remember it correctly...

    I believe some of the chase was through the old Nature's Wonderland attraction, the geyser area.

    Also, there was a Sandy Duncan comedy special showcasing the Haunted Mansion. I know there was another made for tv show that had to deal with the Haunted Mansion, or using it as a back drop.

    I can't remeber or think of any other films, or I would have seen them.

    Another note: Not that many television shows (mostly sitcoms I'm talking) head to Disneyland, they all head to WDW (Full House, Family Matters, Roseanne, etc).

    The only things from Disneyland with TV I remember seeing was the re-opening of Tomorrowland (1998) with Alex Trebek ( I think..) and also a concert by Bewitched, girl band that was Ireland's answer to the Spice Girls.
