Wheel of Fortune Coming to Walt Disney World

For those of you out there who watch Wheel of Fortune you are in for exciting news.  The popular, televised game show, Wheel of Fortune, is where hosts, Pat Sajak and Vanna White, award contestants with money and prizes based on how well they can complete words and phrases based on guessing what letters they think are in the word.  We are so excited to learn that Wheel of Fortune is about to return to Walt Disney World for filming.  The show typically comes to Walt Disney World every year and does a themed Walt Disney World week where the words, phrases and even many of the prizes are all related to Disney and Walt Disney World.

We have confirmed that the show will be filming at Epcot in World Disney World from October 10th – 20th.  The Wheel of Fortune crew will use the same stage that The Chew used for their filming that is going on this week at Epcot.  The stage is located in World Showcase Plaza, the area between World Showcase and Future World.  Guests are typically able to attend the taping, but tickets are already completely gone for the taping attendance.

The theme for this year’s Walt Disney World Wheel of Fortune event is “35th Anniversary at Walt Disney World”.  The show is expected to air the following weeks:

  • November 13th, 2017
  • February 12th, 2018
  • April 30th, 2018

Who will be at the park for the taping?  Was anyone lucky enough to get tickets?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
