Win a Cruise with Disney Channel Stars




Introducing the 1st Disney Summer at Sea Sweepstakes!

Stars from Disney Channel shows will be on board eight different 3- and 4-night sailings this summer, giving fans the opportunity to experience live performances, interview and autograph sessions and newly-created onboard entertainment.

The summer promotion is presented by Kodak, and "select video-blog reporters onboard the ship" will use Kodak cameras to post video updates on the promotion Web site during their cruises. Fares for the Disney Channel Summer at Sea cruises start at $679 per person for a Category 12 (inside) stateroom. Fare is based on double occupancy, and taxes & fees are not included.

If you have a High School Musical-mad pre-teen but the cost of a 4-night cruise is a little out of your budget, you can enter the Disney Channel Summer at Sea Sweepstakes. Eight families will each win a trip on one of the eight Disney Channel Summer at Sea cruises (four winners will receive 3-night cruises and four winners will receive 4-night cruises). Winners also receive a special meet-and-greet opportunity with the Disney Channel stars on that voyage, and a prize package of Kodak equipment, including a Kodak Zi6 video camera.

Disney Channel orders up third season of Wizards of Waverly Place



Disney Channel's "Wizards of Waverly Place," starring Selena Gomez, has been renewed for a third season. The hit comedy about three siblings with magical abilities will also be turned into a Disney Channel original movie, set to debut in August. "Wizards of Waverly Place," which debuted in 2007, also stars David Henrie, Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals Barrera and David DeLuise.

In its third season, it's business as usual for the Russo family when Alex's best friend comes to live with them, Justin suffers from a serious case of senioritis and Max buckles down in his magic in an effort to become the sole heir of the family's powers.

"Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie" will follow the Russos on a vacation to the Caribbean, where Alex accidentally casts a spell that can reverse the fate of their parents' first meeting, putting her and her brothers' existence in jeopardy.
