Planning to visit Disney sometime soon? Before you hit the road, you’d better hit up Destination America. The cable network is planning an entire week of programming dedicated to the happiest and most magical places on Earth.

Destination America’s “Disney Week” will air from Monday, April 29 through Friday, May 3, 2013.

The week will kick off on April 29 with Walt Disney World: Behind the Scenes at 8:00 p.m. (EST/PST). This one-hour special will feature a behind-the-scenes peek at Disney’s four theme parks, two water parks, and endless visitor accommodations.

Right after that, Disney Cruise Line: Behind the Magic will make its world premiere at 9:00 p.m. This will give viewers a guided tour of classic vessels like the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, as well as a peek at the two newest additions to the fleet, the Disney Fantasy and the Disney Dream.

Disneyland Resort: Behind the Scenes will trace the attraction’s history on Tuesday, April 30 at 8:00 p.m., with Florida getting the spotlight in Ultimate Walt Disney World on Wednesday, May 1 at 8:00 p.m.

The last of the original programming will air on Thursday, May 2 at 8:00 p.m., with Undiscovered Disney Parks dissecting all of Disney’s lesser-known sites and attractions. The week will then wrap up with an encore of the Disney Cruise Line special on Friday.

Destination America is one of the many networks under the umbrella of the Discovery Channel Network. It features all sorts of weird and wonderful places–in case you’re looking for a new place to call home (or at least a vacation spot).
