Disney Junior premiering 11 July 2011

So as I was saying here in this post, there's more to share and take note that Disney Junior is premiering on our shores on 11 July 2011.

What is Disney Junior all about? It's a 24-hour channel dedicated to young kids ages 2 - 7 years old and it's even for their parents and caregivers. It is a magical place filled with heart, featuring characters kids love, storytelling parents trust and the enduring quality entertainment that could only come from Disney.

It is actually a re-brand from the now known Playhouse Disney to Disney Junior!

Disney Junior will not only appeal to preschoolers 2 - 5 years old but also to older kids 6 -7 years old. Yay! for this as this means Cavan will still be enjoying Disney Junior and I'll be having less headache over the two boys fighting for the TV!! as both can watch Disney Junior together :)

The whole of Marmalade Bangsar was transformed to a typical Disney scene - kyoot!!

One of the attractive item found on the table filled with M&Ms snack! It is all "handmade" as the Disney crew printed from the Celebration Centre and made these.

Mummy bloggers that night were introduced to Disney Junior by Ms Nancy Kanter, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager who flew in from US specifically to give us a sneak peek into what's coming in Disney Junior.

So what's up the line of Disney Junior?

First, debuting alongside Disney Junior on 11 July 2011 is Jake and the Never Land Pirates. This animated series features a crew of pirates - leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby which follows them in their Never Land adventures as they work to outwit two infamous characters, the only Captain Hook and Smee from Disney's classic Peter Pan.

We were shown a snippet of it and I love the catchy tune it has. I'm very very sure both my boys will lurve this show!

New programs lined up includes Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! - an exciting series starring Dr. Seuss' beloved Cat in the Hat! If you're a Dr. Seuss fan, you'll be delighted with this.

The much loved shows shown currently on Playhouse Disney - Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Jungle Junction, Little Ensteins, Special Agent Oso, Word World will continue to play.

What I look forward to is the Disney Poetry Shorts. This showcases poems for children set to scenes from Disney classics. You never go wrong with a good poem!

After witnessing firsthand the new line ups, we were treated to yummilicious dinner which has wacky cute names to it!

We ended the night with a group photo and I'm delighted that I had a chance to attend this gathering and learn about Disney Junior. Disney characters always has a special place in my heart since I'm a kid till now :))

So don't forget to mark your calendars on 11 July 2011 and catch the Jake and the Never Land Pirates debuting on Disney Junior @ 1pm!
