    What do you think about the upgrade of the cable channels or aren’t you really in your room long enough to watch TV?

    When we went, we just kept it on the Disney Parks channel that comes on-:happybounce: 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 :lol: :lol:
