Saving Mr. Banks was made nearly entirely in Los Angeles. Only the scenes outside of Mrs. Travers' London home were filmed on location in London, outside the actual home she lived in. All of her interiors were built on stage in Santa Clarita, CA.
Both the Goff House and Agricultural Fair in 1906 Australia were filmed in Simi Valley, California.
Disney's office, hallways, and rehearsal room were built and filmed on stages in Santa Clarita, CA. The exteriors around the Disney lot were filmed on the actual Disney Studio lot in Burbank, CA. Thankfully, most of the original architecture remains largely preserved in its original form and color. Any newer architecture inappropriate to our time period we blocked from view with greens, or merely pointed the camera away from.
Disney's Archive Department assisted us with countless reference photos of the time period we needed. A replica of Disney's Office was on display at the Reagan Library, and served as wonderful inspiration and reference.
