Resort News: Changes to Walt Disney World Resorts Television Lineup

I think every resort television on property should look like this one. 


Great news for anyone who enjoys going back to their on-site resort after some fun at the parks but has always been disappointed by the limited number of television stations available. The cable television selection on property is about to be upgraded in a big way. Taking place in a staggered rollout beginning March 13, 2012, and expected to be completed by May 8, 2012, the new television lineup will feature channels including Fox News, Bravo, AMC, TBS, TNT, Travel Channel, Discovery, HGTV, TLC, History Channel, Food Network, TV Land, SyFy and National Geographic.

The rollout schedule is as follows:

March 13: Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts
March 15: Disney’s Old Key West Resort
March 20: Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
March 22: Disney’s Pop Century Resort
April 3:    Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
April 5:    Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
April 10:  Disney’s All-Star Resorts
April 12:  Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
April 17:  Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts
April 19:  Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
April 24:  Disney’s Contemporary Resort
April 26:  Disney’s Polynesian Resort
May 1:    Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
May 3:    Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort
May 8:    Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
I know I shouldn’t be so excited about this, but I’m a television junkie, and we do spend a fair amount of time just relaxing in the room. Up until now, I’ve gotten so bored with the selection, I’ve even gone so far as to watch the sales presentations for Disney Vacation Club and Adventures by Disney in other languages.  Plus, I think this is one thing that a lot of off-site properties had that Disney resorts didn’t, so it’s good to see Disney taking steps to fix that. 

How about you? Do you watch television while at Disney World, or are you only in the room to shower and  sleep?

  1. I do watch a little bit of tv while at WDW, not a lot because by the end of the day I have had enough noise! Getting better channels is great, since the previous listing of channels was sucky.

  2. So true! One can only watch so much STacy. Unless of course one is a very lonely Disney nerd.

  3. I seriously want a tv like that!
