As of a month ago, SoG had that channel (==groan==)...

Here's a scan of the SOG TV Listings (from the SOG Jan 2008 Newsletter). You can watch the WDW Top 7 show on Channel 4. It runs on a loop with highlights of other Orlando attractions.

The reason I "groaned" was because I recall reading on this website that SoG not having that channel was a deal-breaker for some military familes staying on Disney (meaning they would stay at POP, or one of the values, instead).

Their rationale was this channel made them feel like they were on vacation.

Now that I've seen "Stacey" for myself a half dozen times, I can say "been there/done that/no more, please..."

They had some at the reception desk, along with other SOG pamphlets and info sheets (like the Bus Schedule posted above).

I hadn't seen the newsletters before. They didn't hand it out at check-in, it was just sitting on the desk. And when I went back a few times to get another copy, I couldn't find any more (I didn't bother asking because everyone was always busy). It was the last week of the month, so maybe they had run out.

Thanks for the tv info!

We have a rule when we go to WDW - we cannot watch "real" tv. (We really don't watch tv, it's on when we're getting ready or going to bed, etc). We're only allowed to have the Disney info channels on or the weather channel. No reality for us!

TBDave, thanks so much for scanning and posting the newsletter!

For some reason I am having trouble successfully accessing the last page (bus schedule). Is there any way you could repost just that one scan separately? I'm sorry to trouble you, but have tried numerous times to no avail.

With thanks!

I believe that they handed these to us when we checked in for our 2006 stay.
