There are web exclusives on the destination America website. We are such suckers aren't we? Oh well. Honey and I watched the cruises and two park specials on Monday. Made all the better since he had taken me to a total of 4 wdw days, 7 days on a Carnival and 3 days on the Dream. Otherwise I might have gotten cranky...

Twinkie n I are hoping for next yr!

And I woke up and immediately turned on the DVR to watch it again.

Most definitely booking myself a solo cruise to start Winter Break when we're on board!! (Though I'm sure I'll be splurging and getting at least an outside view...Magic Portholes or no, I just am afraid I'd be claustrophobic in an inside cabin!!

Yep another geek and misty eyed person reporting in

We really enjoyed it and it does bring back happy memories for us. My DH (who truly loves the DCL cruising more than anything) also commented when they announce the names, "that's his favorite part because you know you have arrived and it's about to begin".

I took my Mom on the Fantasy as a "treat" in December and she fell in love too. I'm also doing a girls cruise in September on the Dream with two girlfriends (one has never cruised and the other has only cruised Carnival) and I'm so excited to show them how special it is. One friend is actually coming over next week to watch the show with me so she can check it out.

Glad there is "help" for all of us!

(Me), (DH), (DS)
WDW: 11/2008 (MVMCP), 9-10/2009 (MNSSHP, F&W, Pirates Pal Cruise & Pirates League), 4/2010 (Flower & Garden Festival & Jedi Training), 10/2010 (MNSSHP & F&W), 6/2011 (SWW & Universal Studios), 11/2011 Girls Trip (MVMCP & Osborne Lights), 6/2012 and 11/2012 (Osborne Lights), and WDW/MNSSHP 10/2013. Next: 10/2015 WDW/MNSSHP/F&W
DCL (Platinum): 6/2012 (KSC & Dream), 8/2012 Dream, 12/2012 Fantasy (Mom & I), 6/2013 Wonder(Alaska), 9/2013 Dream (girls cruise) & 12/2013 Dream (girls cruise), 1/2014 Magic, 4/2014 Fantasy, 9/2014 Dream (Mom and I), & 12/2014 Wonder Next: 6/2015 (Magic-Europe), & 3/2016 Magic/WDW.

We really enjoyed it! It added to our excitement because we cruise again this week! It was fun seeing Christiaan again - he was a fun CD on our Alaska cruise.

Called Disney Cruise Lines: Behind the Scenes (I believe) and it is on Destination America. I didn't know that I got the channel and I missed the first showing, but it turns out we DO get it and when it was repeated last night we taped it. I'm going to watch it with the kids tonight!!

Yeah, watched both on Monday and Friday plus have it DVRd to watch again and again and again.

One of the reasons I come here almost every day is so I can be with my "own kind" and know that I'm not a freak.
