The Real Golden Girls House

Millions of people vacationing in Florida's Walt Disney World who took Disney-MGM Studios' "Backlot Tour" in the 1990's thought they were looking at the actual house used in the Golden Girls credit sequence. But the house (like much of Disney's Florida property) was a fake.

The real house actually exists in Brentwood, California where it still stands to this day. Much like how the company tried to export Walt Disney's real Magic Kingdom to Florida, it built a fake house to make its studio guests believe they were in a real studio. While the real house in California remains standing, the fake Florida house was torn down in 2003.
