Hello again, everyone -- happy holidays!
Well, folks, if you need to get your Christmas shopping done or you live near one of the parks and want to admire the decorations, this week would be a pretty good time to do it -- which is my way of saying that there's not much new on about the parks this week; everybody at the Travel Channel and the other TV networks figures we're Disneyed out, I guess. (Is there such a thing? I really doubt it!) A few old favorites will be on, though, so it's not you're going to have to go cold turkey or anything. (Is it just me or is anyone else so full from Thanksgiving dinner that they don't even want to say the word "turkey"? Bleah.) Anyway, here's what's coming up. As always, all times are PST and all shows are on the Travel Channel unless otherwise noted.)
