The schedule is as follows:

Saturday, March 21st

(5:00-7:00 PM ET/PT) THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG Set in the great city of New Orleans, "The Princess and the Frog" is a modern twist on a classic tale about Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), a beautiful girl who is accidentally turned into a frog and Prince Naveen (Bruno Campos), a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again. With the help of trumpet-playing alligator Louis (Michael-Leon Wooley), Ray (Jim Cummings), the Cajun firefly, and Mama Odie (Jenifer Lewis), the old blind priestess, Naveen and Tiana are in a race against time to break the spell and fulfill their dreams. "The Princess and the Frog" repeats on Sunday, March 22nd at 3:00PM ET/PT.

(7:00PM -8:45 PM ET/PT) THE LITTLE MERMAID Ariel (Jodi Benson) is a fun-loving and mischievous mermaid enchanted with all things human. Disregarding her father's order to stay away from the world above the sea, she swims to the surface and, in a raging storm, rescues the prince of her dreams. Determined to be human, she strikes a bargain with the devious sea witch, Ursula (Pat Carroll), and trades her fins and beautiful voice for legs. With her best friend, the adorable and chatty Flounder (Jason Marin) and reluctant chaperone Sebastian (Samuel E. Wright), the hilarious, reggae-singing Caribbean crab, at her side, Ariel must win Prince Eric's love (Christopher Daniel Barnes) and save her father's kingdom, all in a heart-pounding race against time! "The Little Mermaid" repeats on Sunday, March 22nd at 5:00PM ET/PT.

(8:45-10:30 PM ET/PT) SLEEPING BEAUTY The ABC Family premiere of "Sleeping Beauty" tells the story of Princess Aurora (Mary Costa) and the evil curse placed on her by vengeful fairy Maleficent (Eleanor Audley). According to the prophecy, Aurora will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a deep slumber on her 16th birthday, from which only the kiss of her true love can awaken her. Three doting fairies - Flora (Verna Felton ), Fauna (Barbara Jo Allen) and Merryweather (Barbara Luddy) - whisk Aurora away to raise her deep in the forest where Maleficent cannot find her. One day while riding in the woods, Prince Phillip (Bill Shirley) meets Aurora, now known as Briar Rose, and the two fall in love. But when Rose learns from the fairies that she is a princess and must return to the castle immediately to fulfill her royal duties, she is devastated at the thought of leaving Philip. Once back at the castle, Maleficent fulfills her curse, putting Princess Aurora in a deep sleep. The prince rushes to the castle to rescue Aurora, but first must battle Maleficent, who assumes the form of a fierce, fire-spouting dragon. "Sleeping Beauty" repeats on Sunday, March 22nd at 6:45pm ET/PT.

(10:30PM - 12:15AM ET/PT) CINDERELLA Walt Disney's "Cinderella" has captivated audiences for generations with its spellbinding story, memorable music, spectacular animation and unforgettable characters. With a wave of her wand and a touch of "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" Cinderella (Ilene Woods) is off to the Royal ball when her Fairy Godmother (Verna Felton) transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella's (Ilene Woods) rags into a gorgeous gown. But Cinderella's enchanted evening must end when the spell is broken at midnight. It will take the help of her daring animal friends Jaq (James MacDonald) and Gus (also James MacDonald) and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending. Cinderella's magic teaches everyone that dreams really do come true. "Cinderella" repeats on Sunday, March 22nd at 8:30PM ET/PT.

(12:15AM - 2AM ET/PT) POCAHONTAS Free-spirited Pocahontas (Irene Bedard) and her woodland pals, Meeko (John Kassir) and Flit (Frank Welker), are surprised when they discover the first English settlers on the shores of their village. With the guidance and wisdom of her beloved Grandmother Willow (Linda Hunt) and the friendship of the courageous Captain John Smith (Mel Gibson), Pocahontas must find a way to bridge the divide between the two vastly different cultures. "Pocohantas" repeats on Sunday, March 22nd at 10:15PM ET/PT.
