Yoo Hoo and hello again, everyone!
Looking forward to that summer vacation trip to the Disney parks but still got a lot of days to go until the day you leave?
Well, I can't speed up the clock for you, but at least I can point you to some great shows about the parks to tide you over until you go. For those of you that missed the recent Travel Channel shows on the Disney parks, get your VCRs ready - they're being shown again! We also have some sitcoms taking palce at WDW and classic shows on TDC featuring Disneyland and some favorite Disney attractions. Let's have a look. (As always, all times are PDT and all shows are on The Disney Channel unless otherwise noted.)
