ABC/Rick Rowell(ANAHEIM, Calif.) — All this week, ABC’s The View is broadcasting from “The Happiest Place on Earth,” Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.
Barbara Walters has been having fun during her first visit to Disneyland — more fun that she’s had at some of the places where her distinguished journalism career has taken her.
She tells ABC News Radio, “I have been to Tibet, and now I have been here to Disneyland. It does make you happy to go on the rides and to eat all of that impossible food, I’ve just had a wonderful time. It isn’t exactly Tibet.”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg has an emotional attachment to Disneyland.
She explains, “It was a place when I was a little kid my mom always wanted to take us to. And she always said ‘I’m going to take you kids.’ And it turned out that I took her. And that kind of blew her away, and sort of got very emotional, and then when she passed she wanted us to bring her here, for her memorial, and that’s what we did.”
Sherri Shepherd says staging the show at an amusement park is not without its challenges. She recalls she had an issue with the teleprompter on Monday because it was behind Goldberg’s hair.
She laughs, “Whoopi says ‘Sherri, do you want to tell us about Small World?’ and I was like, ‘I do?'”
The View will welcome Tim Allen and guest co-host Demi Lovato at Disneyland on Wednesday.
