    This should really appeal to the families with tweens and younger children.

    Uh -- yeah. I may skip this one and go over to the parks for a while instead. Can't say that I've ever seen this show. Can't say I want to.

    Besides, if they held a Q & A with the Disney Channel people, I'd be far too tempted to ask why they can't show us "Vault Disney" again.

    LOL, it might actually be a good opportunity for you to let them know what you would like to see.

    They have obviously found their niche in the very competitive cable market with the 'tween' market. However, like you, I miss the old days of the Disney Channel.

    I saw the title to the thread and was really hoping they were going to post something about putting the older short cartoons or the old Disney Afternoon cartoons back on the Disney channel!

    Me too!
    In fact, this one is my favorite.
    I'm guessing it's one of your faves as well, FantasticDuck.

    Re: Disney Channel Announces Big Plans For D23 Expo

    Oh wow, thanks for that clip! I've heard the song in the Donald 50th birthday parade, but didn't know it also was used in video like this. Also, I've heard the regular "Non-Donald" version of the song on the Mickey Mouse Splashdance album.

    I know we can't go back to the way things were, and the Disney channel will probably not add old programming back on the air. However, I sure wish they'd create a "Vault Disney" channel for adults and kids who like the classic stuff...

    Oh, and as for Wizards of Waverly Place. I tried giving the show a chance, because I thought it was a cute concept. Maybe it's just me, but I really don't like the main character, Alex. She's almost always a jerk to her family, and does mean-spirited things. She just doesn't seem very likeable...

    I'm thrilled by this announcement! I thought the entire D23 expo was going to be full of all these awesome events with not enough time to see everything I want to! Great to know that there will be some stuff that I will miss that I won't care when I miss them!

    Here's how out of the loop I am, I had never even heard of the Wizards of Waverly Place before today. Yet it is the number one show for tweens and pre-tweens.

    I am feeling so old!

    I suppose there were shows that I watched at that age that my parents had never heard of as well.

    I Thought that too! But they should have a whole new channel for stuff like that. I'll watch it!

    If Cartoon Network can make a go of Adult Swim why can't the Disney Channel do the same. Thank goodness I taped a bunch of those Vault Disney shows. The best.

    O yes! I used to stand in front of my parents TV and VCR with my finger on the "record" button waiting for a Donald cartoon to come on so I could tape it! I'm such a nerd

    You mean Hanna Montana is no longer #1?

    *shock, horror*

    Maybe there is a god of some sorts after all... maybe... first Miley and the Jonas Brothers need to be vaporized, then I'd really believe.

    Re: Disney Channel Announces Big Plans For D23 Expo

    I think it's great that the Expo really is including ALL Disney fans. I think a lot of us forget that there is a whole new generation of Disney fans that have been introduced to the company through the modern version of Disney Channel. For that generation, this is exactly what they expect to see at D23 Expo. It seems like nobody is being left out.
