I listen to that podcast and have several friends that will be attending that event. Sadly, I can't because of work. I have a fabulous job that I work only from October thru the first week of December. It's the perfect job for me now that I'm retired from working full time. So I'm going the last week of September. I'll see a few people from various forums but I think I'll miss any PP's.

I have no idea what Mousetacular is - it does not seem to have a community or book or podcast associated with it? It looks like it may just be a group put together by a travel agency. So for those who are looking at it as a replacement to or being similar to MouseFest, make sure you understand that this event has no affiliation with PassPorter or apparently any other community.
i think i heard or read somewhere (probably here from other folks) that while mousefest is no longer, or at least on hold for the time being, that OTHER disney websites, etc WILL be holding gatherings. am i mistaken? i am seeing a very interesting trend in the questions/ responses to all this december stuff. in fact, i asked a question about mousefest and now my thread has been "retired". what i am seeing here is not a good thing either. i am planning on going the first part of december as it looks like there will be some fun activities similar to those i have experienced in the past with mousefest. seems a few people on here have ties to certain travel agencies and there is a bit of disagreement about what is going on in december. some of us just want info and seem to be in the middle of some sort of battle. just sayin.
There are a variety of events being held in WDW in early December. Most are associated with communties or podcasts. And while these groups do have travel agencies associated with them (only a travel agency can create a group booking at WDW with discounted room rates), you do not have to book through the agency to attend although there may be perks associated with doing so. Similar to Decade of Dreams.
So there is the WDWToday event which a bunch of community leaders will be attending (including people from AllEars, WDWToday, etc.) as well as other events. I'm simply not familiar with Mousetacular and cannot determine which if any community they are affiliated with. That's all. It doesn't make it good or bad, it just means that it is not an official PassPorter meet. But I'm sure if you are planning to be there attending other events, you would be welcome to attend theirs as well. It sounds like a bunch of PassPorters will be down there at the same time so even though there is no "official" PassPorter gathering, there should be plenty of unofficial meets!
