|There's a fan site for every purpose and niche...|
TV Kirby maintains a fan site for upcoming TV shows about Disney theme parks and cruise line. His website has current TV listings, whereas it's been weeks since he posted on Disney Echo
If you always want to know what's on or about to come on, so you can program your VCR or DVR, bookmark the site and check it every week or so:
If you have satellite TV or with digital video recording options such as TiVo: Program your "Wish List" or similar search function for Disney. The shows TV Kirby lists, and different ones, will pop up. Be sure to regularly manage your To Do (upcoming shows to be recorded) to make sure these are what you truly want, weed out the ones you don't, and once recorded check the newly recorded list to also weed out the ones you've already viewed aka "reruns".
Happy Disney viewing!
Thank you to TV Kirby for performing such a dedicated service to Disney fans! It's very appreciated, thank you!
The last time TV Kirby posted about Disney Theme Park TV Shows was for the week of August 4, 2014.
We have long communicated, since 2011, in a Topic called "Disney Echo Returnees : Read This Topic" that Disney Echo was losing members, even the most dedicated members were opting for social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. In 2014 so few return, likely in response to the "Disney Echo Returnees : Read This Topic" info and suggestions that Disney Echo as formerly active members always knew it is dormant. The slow down was noticed in 2010-2011 so it's a process that isn't new and coincides with the popularity of social media sites.
For those of you who are too busy or too distracted or too non-technical to program a DVR or a TiVo to look for keywords that mean a show about that is coming up (On TiVo it's called Wish List, on DirecTV DVR it's called Search & Browse and you find that on the Menu button on your remote control) .....
Here is TV Kirby's website, where he is continuing to post Disney parks-themed TV show listings.
Bookmark this website and check it weekly, that is how often TV Kirby posts the information.
TV Kirby, we at Disney Echo want to gratefully thank you for your dedication and diligence and Disney fanship for years for Disney Echo members. Thank you for regularly posting your listings here.
Indeed our site and many of the Topics get clicked... you can tell by comparing in each Forum's Topic Index what Topics get how many looks, and each week there are several new ones for each Topic here. The sad reality aspect of it though is those clicks might be Disney fan guests or former members checking if there are new Disney theme park listings.... Or spammers attempting to log on and post links to porn, Viagra or Cialis websites, Dr. Oz weight loss products, thigh creams, scam websites, or people posing as folks from Facebook inviting you to Friend them and it's porn instead.
With the lack of activity on Disney Echo since 2011 we can call it "dormant" and increasingly outdated as of 2014. The true owner, Larry Gensch, doesn't want to take the site down however. Rich Koster, Site Admin, and I as his wife-assistant have pretty much stopped all actions to keep this site newsy, updated, relevant, useful, social.
If you want TV listings about Disney theme parks, the following are suggestions.
1. Regularly check TV Kirby's website, above. Weekly is good. Then if something is new and interesting, just tell your DVR or TiVo about it and arrange ahead of time to record it.
2. You can also find Disney TV listings by programming TiVo's Wish List with keyword "Disney" or DirecTV's "Search & Browse". Ask your cable system, satellite system, or TiVo customer service or owners manuals if you don't understand how your DVR or TiVo works. Searching this way the system will remember your search term, so you can always go back and keep checking for shows. On a DVR or TiVo you can find shows airing within the next two weeks.
3. There are a lot of online TV listings services. Your cable or satellite service provider has online listings at their website, and may have a "search" function to use keywords like Disney to find shows. TiVo also has an online listings service anyone can use even if you don't own a TiVo device. Just look for program listings, enter your zip code and provider (a cable TV system, satellite system) and a keyword like Disney. It also shows listings for the next two weeks. Other options include the website Zap2It and maybe TV Guide online, and more.
4. If you are savvy about sites such as iTunes, Netflix, Hulu and others where you watch TV shows online, then use keyword Disney or Disneyland or Walt Disney World or Disney Cruise Line and exact titles of attractions or movies and watch online that way.
Probably most straggling infrequent former members have heard and seen that Disney Echo is practically dormant now.
If you are only now finding this info out....
Click here and then go to final page for most recent update at "Disney Echo Returnees : Read this Topic". It explains our site's status, how it go this way, and offers sure-fire 100% reliable suggestions for getting Disney news, info, travel guidance, social community, pointers for where to find anything re: Disney. In this way the advice offered at this link is in fact Disney Echo continuing to sere it's members and guests.
Disney Echo is NOT being kept updated or maintained, it isn't newsy anymore, people have left the site. It should be considered dormant and dated. The true owner doesn't want to discontinue the site. Maybe someday the less logging on that happens by anybody maybe Larry Gensch will see the light and finally pull the plug on a website the former members don't utilize anymore.
Until then, and for the present: The various suggestions in this Topic and within "Disney Echo Returnees : Read This Topic" will help you greatly. So I urge guests and infrequently returning members to check it all out and bookmark what works best.
Thank you TV Kirby....
And to our members, guests, people wanting TV listings about Disney.... follow the suggestions offered above, definitely patronize TV Kirby's fan site, or learn how your TiVo and DVR work to find shows especially Disney ones.
