An eclectic combination of 8-bit video games, salty chips, and Catalan wines. Sounds like the ingredients for a good Friday.
The Disney Vacation Club is a membership program for people who purchase real estate interest in a Disney Vacation Club Resort and build points based on the size of the real estate interest as well as vacations taken to Disney places. A new logo, featuring DIN of all things (nothing says Disney like German transportation signage), was introduced earlier this month. The Disney Parks blog has the story.
This coming February Disney is introducing a new channel and programming block, called Disney Junior, that will replace SOAPnet and Playhouse Disney, respectively. Playhouse Disney currently airs through the main Disney Channel and is aimed at the preschool range of kids, typically 2 – 5. Disney Junior will keep airing through the Disney Channel and expand its audience to include 7-year-olds and new content. Playhouse Disney also operates as a full channel in more than twenty markets overseas. SOAPnet is a channel about soap operas so… um, yeah, it makes perfect sense for people that watch soap operas to be rewarded with a new kids channel. (I’m guessing they don’t give away cable channels like toothpicks at a restaurant so Disney is probably using its cable real estate to reshuffle). Anyway, Disney Junior will carry favorites like Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso. Announced back in May of 2010, Disney Junior presented its new identity in late October of 2010.
