Growing up, I can remember when The Disney Channel was one you had to subscribe to, if you wanted it. And in 1989, my family finally got the package that included it. I can remember coming home from school and hurriedly trying to get my homework done (how ever much I may have actually had when I was in 3rd grade) by 4:30pm, so I didn't miss the show. While I don't remember all of the songs, skits, and serials they showed, I do remember "Teen Angel" where Jason Priestley (from 90210) played a guardian angel, named Buzz, assigned to help Dennis navigate through some teenage stuff, so he can get in to Heaven. I also remember joining "The Club", which was the official fan club of The All New Mickey Mouse Club. Though I have no idea where any of the membership kit is now.
It was around this time that my family had the chance to go to Disney World. MGM had recently opened and TANMMC was being filmed there. I remember going on the back lot tour, hoping to catch a glimpse of the show being filmed. Also hoping to run in to any cast members, especially Tiffini or Brandy, haha. I also remember hounding my parents to find out which of the stores in MGM Studios sold. The answer was unfortunately, none. I did end up with a TANMMC t shirt though.
