Hello again, everyone!
"Oh the weather outside is frightful/ But TV is so delightful./ Let's watch another theme park show./Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..." :)
Had enough of shopping? Heck, had enough of being out in the cold? Well, we've got some good shows about the parks coming up, including a new special from our old friend Samantha Brown; you're going to especially like the next couple of weeks if you're a fan of the Disney Cruise Line or you're trying to convince your loved ones to take a DCL cruise, because we have several airings of a couple of shows about the Mouse's cruise ships. Take some time out from the holiday madness, pull up a chair in front of the TV, and start dreaming of a Disney Christmas! Here's what's coming up. (As always, all times are PST and all shows are on the Travel Channel unless otherwise noted.)
