“Must Do Disney” Removed from Resort TV Lineup at Walt Disney World
UPDATE: Despite seemingly having been removed, “Must Do Disney” has been quietly moved to channel 73 under “Must Do Disney Sp”, which previously showed the Spanish dubbed version of the show. Guests looking for this beloved show can turn to channel 73 to see Stacey, but keep in mind that many of the offerings showed are temporarily unavailable due to current health and safety guidelines.
The fan-favorite resort channel, “Must Do Disney”, has been pulled from its home on channel four across Walt Disney World Resort room TVs. The 20-minute program, hosted by Stacey Aswad, famously takes viewers on a journey across “four theme parks, two water parks, and Disney Springs to bring you the must-do Disney attractions and entertainment at Walt Disney World that you, well, must do.”
Featuring clips and a guided tour by Aswad, viewers rode along to see the best of the resort. This is helpful to those who may not be up-to-date on Walt Disney World’s new offerings since their last visit.
Today, our staff found that the program has been pulled from the channel lineup, sometime in the last 30 days. A tweet from NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks player Robin Lopez showed the athlete watching “Must Do Disney” on July 10. Host Stacey Aswad responded on Twitter to the original tweet.
This week, the program was quietly removed from the rotation and replaced. In its place on channel four is “Company Clips,” a selection of advertisements, cartoons, music videos and other short-format offerings. Channel four is still labeled “Disney Must Do”, but it is playing the same program simultaneously found on channel 31, “Company Clips.”
No explanation is readily available as to why “Must Do Disney” was removed, although speculation suggests several possibilities. One is that it may have been a dated program in need of refresh. Another is that the program shows offerings which are unavailable due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. It would be therefore removed so as not to entice guests in the hotel to plan their day around an experience that is no longer offered. With no currently-available explanation as to its removal, there is also no indication of whether it may return eventually.
