    Add me to the list that doesn't watch it now. I haven't watched it at all in about 4 years.

    Well, Cartoon Network is more fun anyway, I think. I mean, sure, I love Disney, but I'd rather watch something Hanna-Barbra than one of those annoying, jerky, forced recent attempts at making Mickey Mouse/Donald Duck/Goofy cartoons the way they did before 1960. Not that I watch a lot of cartoons anymore, but hypothetically speaking...

    Yeah, I'm with all of you who don't watch it now anyway, so no biggie for me to boycott.

    But then again, I'm so against pointless boycotts I may start watching it now just for the heck of it.

    I LOVE Playhouse Disney! They have some of the cutest shows and I would never DREAM of boycotting them! I trust their programming and feel that my son can watch without my having to worry. Although he pretty much watches only playhouse disney, so I never see the other programming they have except House of Mouse which I also love!

    As far as the commercials, I much prefer theirs to other networks where they promote video games and junk food and who knows what else that I prefer my son doesn't see. That is why my son only watches Disney Channel and PBS with the exception of Dora or Blue's Clues on occasion- but I am super careful to change it before commercials!

    disney channel is good in the mornings. playhouse disney has some cute shows without commercials. house of mouse is good, too, because it runs some of the older cartoons & showcases the fab 5. after 3:30/4:00, it's never on over here.

    unfortunately, my son likes toon disney. it's alright in the mornings, too, but jetix...i just don't get.

    I still want more theme park oriented content!!! Darn it...

    That is actually an excellent idea. In this day and age, everyone has multiple channels on the same network so it would make perfect sense. It would allow Disney to compete with Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon while still centering on their core Disney audience on another channel. The Disney Channel is a powerful asset to create theme park awareness and let people know what's going on in the parks. What better PR than to entertain people and inform them of your upcoming attractions at the same time. It would generate a lot of interest from higher-profit tourists because cable is national. It's pretty sad when Travel Channel is airing more content about Imagineers and Disney theme parks throughout the world than Disney themselves.

    I would LOVE to see a Vault Disney Channel with theme park specials thrown in to publicize their next big attraction. Even if they just spent an hour on one single ride explaining its history and design process it'd be so fascinating. It'd be cheap for Disney because not only is it in-house, they wouldn't have to design sets or animation. Why is this always the case for big corporations? People have to literally beg them to get something the public would salivate over. It's like these companies spend millions of dollars on "research" and focus groups when all they need to do is read a couple Internet blogs or message boards.

    Playhouse Disney plays McDonald's commercials all the time! In fact, the only commercial that I've ever seen on PD is the McDonald's commercial. We record JoJo's Circus and the Wiggles every day for my 2 year old, and every time I have to skip through the stupid McD's commercial. That's my one big problem with the Disney Channel -- that they allow McDonald's to advertise on shows that are aimed at toddlers and preschoolers. Advertising total junk food to such young children is just wrong, IMO.

    You are right, I forgot about the occasional McDonald's commercial. We have been watching more of PBS lately I guess, which also shows McD's commercials now that I think about it.

    But generally they never show food I don't think, not that it makes much difference. Isn't it usually just Ronald or kids or something?

    I guess that never bothered me because my son associates McD's with a playground since that is why we go there. During the winter we went there a couple times a week so he could play indoors with other kids.

    As much as I'd like to watch the shows on Disney in which I grew up with I can't help but, to think that things change according to the times. Although the new shows may be crap to those who grew up watching the classic black-and-white Mickey cartoons or Pooh's Corner in the 80's, it again may spark the interest of kids today. Change is inevitable and frankly, most people hate it. I mean, we're creatures of habit, can you blame us? So, as much as i'd like to say count me in, i'm afraid I'll have to decline the generous offer! :o

    On the Disney Channel UK, they show a classic every Saturday night at 7pm. I can remember watching at one point;
    - Cinderella
    - Sleeping Beauty
    - Pocahontas
    - Hercules
    - Beauty and the Beast
    - The Little Mermaid
    - Pinocchio
    - Bambi

    Plus some modern favourites

    - Toy Story
    - Bugs Life
    - Toy Story 2
    - Monsters Inc
    - Lilo and Stitch (thats a classic as well though isn't it)

    Brother Bear is coming soon, and to answer the theme park thing, I can remember watching a special about the Walt Disney Studios when it opened. They have popular bands in to play on their Studio Disney slot (2-5pm weekdays) and presenters are sent to the REAL Walt Disney Studios, the ABC studios, and WDW (Disneyland isn't very well known in the UK, it is often confused with Disneyland Paris) reguarly for specials. Honest.
