Yoo Hoo and hello again, everyone!

Pulled a few all-nighters getting your taxes done and need to relax? {You DID get your taxes done, didn't you? :) }

I've got just the thing for you - several shows featuring the Disney theme parks will be airing in the next few weeks.

We've got four shows featuring WDW, one featuring Disneyland (and another featuring a film segment shown at Disneyland) - we've even got a  show that tells a little about Walt's fascination with trains, which led to the creation of the Disney parks. Anyway you look at it, we've got some shows coming up to put a smile back on your face (and maybe give you some ideas about what to do with your tax refund besides). Here's what's coming up. (All times listed are PDT {did everybody reset their VCR clocks?} and all shows are on The Disney Channel unless otherwise noted.)

A. Shows About Disney Theme Parks and Resorts

Tuesday, April 16, 2:00 a.m.:
Walt Disney Presents -"Disneyland, the Park & Pecos Bill"
A 1957 look at how the Magic Kingdom came about, including Walt taking us on an aerial tour of the Park and featuring an appearance by the Mouseketeers. This episode also features Roy Rogers singing "Blue Shadows on the Trail" and the story of Pecos Bill.

Saturday, April 27, 2:00 a.m.:
Walt Disney Presents - "The Mouseketeers at Walt Disney World"
Members of the New Mickey Mouse Club (Poster's note: That's the 1977 MMC, not the 80's one with Britney and Christina!) travel to Florida to perform and explore the Vacation Kingdom. Featuring Jo Anne Worley, Ronnie Schell, and Dennis Underwood.

Sunday, April 28, 2:00 a.m.:
Walt Disney Presents - "Magic Highway U.S.A."
A show about the past, present (circa 1958) and future (also circa 1958 - more than a few predictions were off) of America's highways. Disneyland fans will recognize the segment on the future of highways from the pre-show area of "Rocket Rods" as well as what became known later on as the "Disneyland Monorail Song" on the soundtrack.

Tuesday, April 30, 8:30 a.m., Travel Channel:
Great Hotels - "Disney's Grand Floridian."
Host Samantha Brown shows us the premier hotel of the Walt Disney World resort and spends a little time at the Magic Kingdom.

B. Shows with Segments About Disney Theme Parks (and things that led to them)

Thursday, April 18, 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., The Learning Channel:  
"Super Structures: Reach For The Sky"
Investigates the creative forces behind great structures. Includes a segment on Walt Disney World, focusing on Epcot's Spaceship Earth, and an interview with architect Frank Gehry.

Thursday, April 25, 2:00 a.m.:
Walt Disney Presents - "Behind The Scenes With Fess Parker"
Actor Fess Parker takes us behind the scenes of the filming of the movie "The Great Locomotive Chase."  Includes a segment where Walt discusses his love of trains, a fascination that led him the creation of the Disney theme parks.

C.  Shows Taking Place At Disney Theme Parks

Thursday, April 18, 5:00 p.m.:
Boy Meets World - "The Happiest Show on Earth"
Cory heads to Walt Disney World with the hopes of winning back Topanga, but she thinks he has other plans.

And that's all we have, folks! Everybody have a good next couple of weeks, and I'll talk to you again soon.
