    Are you sure you are thinking of Stacey and not Erin from the 2005 planning DVD? I think Erin looks a lot like Joanie. Stacey...not so much.

    I also agree Northern Disney Girl's family were the luckiest people in the park that day

    <3 Stacey

    Turning on the tv and watching the "must sees" is a "must do" for me every Disney trip

    Stacey should be the Top Must See at Disney :happytv:

    ITA!!

    I loved the original top 7. Yes, she was peppy, but I'm sure she was directed that way, and it did work to get us excited. I doubt that she was really that hyper in real life, at least all the time.

    Likewise, I think on the new one, she seems to be heavily directed,or told exactly what to do, how to stand, etc. The way she walks is so awkward. I don't blame her because she was so natural and smooth on the old one. So I'm thinking they are letting her be herself less, and it doesn't look nearly as good.

    Also I liked the old script (or ad-libs) much better. It may have been silly but at least peolpe had fun quoting her/speaking along with her. Now it's a boring script with 101 ways to use the phrase "must do. "

    That is possible. But I still think Stacey looks like her too.

    Stacey Aswad and Erin Moran (Joanie) both are female and they have dark hair so yeah, I guess they look alike.:rotfl2:

    The show is really boring and repeats all the same junk we've seen 1000 times and already know about. I don't waste more the 30 seconds watching it in the hotel room anymore. It's like a sad running joke, that they won't get new hosts and change the show...

    My favorite was Krissa Mooney, from several years ago. She was very peppy, etc., but the content wasn't as annoying and repetitive as it is now with Stacey.

    I did run across Krissa once, while she was filming something at Beach Club, and my family was staying there. She was dressed in a black evening dress (I think maybe she'd been over at Boardwalk or at Yachtman's Steakhouse). She was a knock out. :thumbsup2

    I still miss Tip for Today too..... I have never been a big fan or either Krissa or Stacey. Even less so with the "new" Stacey. I don't think she's dowdy, but she does seem really stiff. At least in her more annoying days, she was enthusiastic.

    It's time for some new WDW TV stuff.

    Well, maybe we're in the minority here, but we love Stacey in all the versions. She is lovely and exciting and makes it official that we are in Disney. :thumbsup2

    FWIW, someone on the comments for that YouTube video of the Must-Dos said that they've now updated the show(as of 10/14) with new info and new music. No word if Stacey is looking less dowdy.

    Stacey's my girl.princess::lovestruc

    We saw a documentary a few years ago called "Finding Kraftland," and had a chance to go to a special screening with the filmmakers and Stacey (who is in it). We also got a nice little gift packet that had an autographed pic of her. That documentary, along with seeing her first-hand, cast her in a much perkier and fun light than the current loop they're running on WDW TV.

    Her energy before must have been on some insane level then, because we just got back from our trip last week, we watched Stacey's Must Dos almost every day, and her enthusiasm was fabulous!

    I was just watching the youtube link to the must dos, and then the top 7 links on youtube as well, and they've used some of the footage from the top 7 show in the current must dos show. Like her pink tankini and adorable pigtail braids; the PERFECT blend of modesty and hotness.

    We adored her!

    (we like Erin from the '05 planning video as well, yay for her that she's getting on real TV shows now!, and hubby likes the woman from the DVC specials from a couple years ago (not DeeVeeCee LOL). disney casting is amazing!)

    We love Stacey! Last trip seriously, that was the ONLY thing that ever played on our tv during our 8-night stay. Son is autistic and for some reason was hell bent on keeping ONLY that channel on... we all fell asleep every night to it.
    And constantly find ourselves quoting from it.... my daughter mostly, saying things like "he kinda looks like my Uncle Phil".... or sorry mickey, sorry mickey, sorry mickey..... of "it's a small world... classic"... it goes on and on around here!
    That "sorry Mickey" where she's bouncing the Mickey ball - my daughter loves that, and loves balls for some odd reason, and is going to be so excited when she opens up Christmas Day one of those Mickey balls!

    The footage of stacy in the parks is fun - but where they just have her talking standing there, yeah, pretty boring, too serious.

    You are a very kind parent!

    Every single time we were near one of those kiosks, my son was being a pain in the patootie. There was no chance I was buying him a ball at any of those moments! And then we were just too tired at the end to play "distract the 6 year old" to buy him one on the sly. Poor poor kid.


    Oh! And she totally sold me on one of those safari Mickey hats...but they are only in kid size! I don't have a big head, but it was just big enough that they didn't fit. UGH! I was so disappointed.


    "Sorry Mickey! Sorry Mickey! Sorry Mickey!"

    "You're gonna get wettttttttttttt!"

    I'm another one who liked the Top 7 so much more than the current Must Do's! Top 7 had so much more energy, wish they'd bring it (or something like it) back!

    Wow. I'm glad so many people actually enjoyed Stacey. I couldn't change the channel fast enough. She is really annoying to me and figured she would be to most people. At least she is enjoying to some!

    I want the next version of Must Dos to feature Stacey wearing Crocs and mowing down guests on an ECV steering it with one hand and holding a Turkey Leg in the other.
