    The new channels will include the following:

    • AMC
    • Bravo
    • Discovery
    • Food Network
    • Fox News
    • History Channel
    • HGTV
    • National Geographic
    • SyFy
    • TBS
    • TLC
    • TNT
    • Travel Channel
    • TV Land



    The dates for the upgrades are:

    Date

    When we went, we just kept it on the Disney Parks channel that comes on- I guess we were so excited, that's all we wanted to know about. And we were usually not in the room that much.

    I've only ever stayed on site once, and we hardly watched any TV and if we had the Disney Parks Channel on and Stacey (I think that's her name) came on we used to hit the mute button
