Yoo Hoo and hello again, everyone!
Something's not quite right here, folks. It's November - which means November sweeps, the time where networks bring out lots of exciting stuff, yet there aren't a whole lot of new shows about the Disney parks coming out. Please note that I said there were only a few new shows, not none -- "Great Hotels" is premiering a new show on the Grand Californian this week, and the Travel Channel will be re-broadcasting their new show on the Disneyland Resort soon, so Disneyland fans, set your VCRs and PVRs! Here's what's coming up. (As always, all times are PST and all shows are on the Travel Channel unless otherwise noted.)
