For my money, Modern Family is still one of the best shows on TV today. With its outstanding cast, witty scripts and relatable situations, it breathes new life into the standard sitcom format.
What’s more, this cast genuinely seems to have fun together. Sure, you can put on a quality show even with actors who loathe each other off-camera, but when you’re part of a company that just clicks, the results are that much better – and the experience becomes a joyful part of your workday life.
Yesterday found the whole clan taping at Disneyland, where the park celebrated Leap Day by staying open 24 hours. Knowing the Dunphys, Pritchetts and Tucker-Pritchetts, it’s a safe bet that their visit to the Happiest Place on Earth will be anything but dull. They’ll be lucky if they get through the day without getting bounced out by Mickey himself.
Not only did professional photogs get some great shots of Sofia Vergara, Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and the rest of the cast, but Julie Bowen also shared some of her own candids on Twitter – further proof that this Family is a close-knit one on and off screen.
Look at how the cast spent their magical day!
