Yoo Hoo and hello again, everyone -- Happy Easter!

Before we get started, I wanted to give a belated congratulations to all the Academy Award winners from a few weeks back; it's nice to see Disney pick up a few more statues for it's collection!

(Knocking on door.)  Just a minute, folks. (Opens door.) Stitch! How's the surfing, buddy? Wait a minute...what's that in your hand? No, the other hand. An Oscar? Stitch, I know you're upset because you didn't win, but you can't keep that. Give that Oscar back to Mr. Miyazaki. Go on, now. They have
plenty of those at the Studio for you to play with -- just ask Dave Smith. 'Bye, now.

(Closes door.) He means well, folks...

Now, where were we? Oh, yeah -- We have some pretty good shows coming up this time around, including (fanfare please) a new show on the Travel Channel! Okay, it's about the Disney Cruise Line, but that's kind of like a floating Disney park, isn't it?
 :)  Some old favorites will also be airing on the Travel Channel, and a couple of shows featuring WDW will air on other channels, so we've got a lot to look forward to. Here's what's coming up. (All times are PDT; shows that are new to the listings are indicated by an asterisk{*} following the description.)

Take care, everyone.
