Forums Closed
As of January 1, 2019, we have closed our forums. This is a decision we did not come to lightly, but it is necessary. The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk. The server software itself must be updated, and it cannot be without removing the forums.

So it is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our long-running forums. They came online in 2000 and brought together so many wonderful Disney fans. We had friendships form, careers launch, couples marry, children born ... all because of this amazing community.

Thank you to each of you who were a part of this community. You made it possible.

And a very special thank you to our Guides (moderators), past and present, who kept our forums a happy place to be. You are the glue that held everything together, and we are forever grateful to you. Thank you aliceinwdw, Caldercup, MrsM, WillCAD, Fortissimo, GingerJ, HiddenMickey, CRCrazy, Eeyoresmom, disneyknut, disneydani, Cam22, chezp, WDWfan, Luvsun, KMB733, rescuesk, OhToodles!, Colexis Mom, lfredsbo, HiddenMickey, DrDolphin, DopeyGirl, duck addict, Disneybine, PixieMichele, Sandra Bostwick, Eeyore Tattoo, DyanKJ130, Suzy Q'Disney, LilMarcieMouse, AllisonG, Belle*, Chrissi, Brant, DawnDenise, Crystalloubear, Disneymom9092, FanOfMickey, Goofy4Goofy, GoofyMom, Home4us123, iamgrumpy, ilovedisney247, Jennifer2003, Jenny Pooh, KrisLuvsDisney, Ladyt, Laughaholic88, LauraBelle Hime, Lilianna, LizardCop, Loobyoxlip, lukeandbrooksmom, marisag, michnash, MickeyMAC, OffKilter_Lynn, PamelaK, Poor_Eeyore, ripkensnana, RobDVC, SHEANA1226, Shell of the South, snoozin, Statelady01, Tara O'Hara, tigger22, Tink and Co., Tinkerbelz, WDWJAMBA, wdwlovers, Wendyismyname, whoSEZ, WildforWD, and WvuGrrrl. You made the magic.

We want to personally thank Sara Varney, who coordinated our community for many years (among so many other things she did for us), and Cheryl Pendry, our Message Board Manager who helped train our Guides, and Ginger Jabour, who helped us with the PassPorter-specific forums and Live! Guides. Thank you for your time, energy, and enthusiasm​. You made it all happen.

There are other changes as well.

Why? Well, the world has changed. And change with it, we must. The lyrics to "We Go On" for IllumiNations say it best:

We go on to the joy and through the tears
We go on to discover new frontiers
Moving on with the current of the years.
We go on
Moving forward now as one
Moving on with a spirit born to run
Ever on with each rising sun.
To a new day, we go on.

It's time to move on and move forward.

PassPorter is a small business, and for many years it supported our family. But the world changed, print books took a backseat to the Internet, and for a long time now it has been unable to make ends meet. We've had to find new ways to support our family, which means new careers and less and less time available to devote to our first baby, PassPorter.

But eventually, we must move on and move forward. It is the right thing to do.

So we are retiring this newsletter, as we simply cannot keep up with it. Many thanks to Mouse Fan Travel who supported it all these years, to All Ears and MousePlanet who helped us with news, to our many article contributors, and -- most importantly -- to Sara Varney who edited our newsletter so wonderfully for years and years.

And we are no longer charging for the Live Guides. If you have a subscription, it's yours to keep for the lifetime of the Live Guides at no additional cost. The Live Guides will stay online, barring server issues and technical problems, for all of 2019.

That said, PassPorter is not going away. Most of the resources will remain online for as long as we can support them, and after that we will find ways to make whatever we can available. PassPorter means a great deal to us, and to many of you, and we will do our best to keep it alive in whatever way we can. Our server costs are high, and they'll need to come out of our pockets, so in the future you can expect some changes so we can bring those costs down.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your amazing support over the years. Without you, there's no way us little guys could have made something like this happen and given the "big guys" a run for their money. PassPorter was consistently the #3 guidebook after the Unofficial and Official guides, which was really unheard of for such a small company to do. We ROCKED it thanks to you and your support and love!

If you miss us, you can still find some of us online. Sara started a new blog at DisneyParkPrincess.com -- I strongly urge you to visit and get on her mailing list. She IS the Disney park princess and knows Disney backward and forward. And I am blogging as well at JenniferMaker.com, which is a little craft blog I started a couple of years ago to make ends meet. You can see and hear me in my craft show at https://www.youtube.com/c/jennifermaker . Many PassPorter readers and fans are on Facebook, in groups they formed like the PassPorter Trip Reports and PassPorter Crafting Challenge (if you join, just let them know you read about it in the newsletter). And some of our most devoted community members started a forum of their own at Pixie Dust Lane and all are invited over.

So we encourage you to stay in touch with us and your fellow community members wherever works best for you!

Best wishes for a wonderful and magical new year!

I was thinking the exact same thing! Even sometimes in the A boarding group people try to get in front of you, even though they have a higher boarding number. Great shots of landscape and Windsor Castle!

Mi think I posted my response to your previous post at the same time you were responding to someone else, so my post slipped by... I had a question about the Heathrow lounges if you get a chance.
Love the views of Windsor Castle again, but you're right, the last flight were a little better.
You didn't need any more bruises! Ouch!

The lounge in Heathrow looked quite nice and glad the two of you made good use of it with the food and drink offerings as well as the massages you got! The bar on the plane looks a bit odd and doesn't really show me much! Nice shots of Windsor on take off!

Oh boy, that really happens? We've only flown a few times with Southwest, but on those occasions, everyone's been so well behaved...

So cool to see Windsor Castle from the air. Thank goodness a sick pilot didn't delay you all too long.
I was relieved we were still able to get away on time, as when I heard that, I was thinking the worst.

I'm thinking about booking that for our flight home in August. Our flight out is 4:30 pm, and I believe we disembark at 8 am. We are looking at a car service that would take us from Southampton to Windsor Castle, and then on to Heathrow, but even with tat I think we'll have lots of extra time.
Firstly, so sorry I missed this.

Right, this was a lounge that anyone can book. There are two types of lounge at Heathrow, the first is the ones provided by the airlines for their first class/business class passengers. That's what we were in for our flight out to San Francisco, as we were flying Upper Class with Virgin Atlantic. I know British Airways have something similar and I think a lot of the other airlines either have their own or share with other airlines.

The other type is this kind of lounge where you can pay to go there. It cost us £30 (about $45) each, which I felt was good value, given that we'd have to pay for breakfast anyway, and we had somewhere quiet to wait and somewhere we could easily find power points to use the laptops etc.

You would need to know which terminal you're flying out of to make a booking. The other thing to know is that a lot of the lounges have a three hour maximum stay, at least that's what they say when you book. Frankly, how the heck they'd know if you spent more than three hours there, I do not know. It's not like they go around looking for you to throw you out, as far as I could see.

Hope that helps.

Wednesday 23 September – part four: what is it?

Soon we were heading into the clouds…



Now Mark was very taken with this…



Any ideas what it is?

Well, if you thought in the earlier photos that you didn’t see any form of a blind for the window, you’d be spot on. There isn’t. Instead you use this to darken the window. It’s very unique, but also a bit surreal, and takes a bit of getting used to.



The mood lighting in the cabin was very interesting, and it was very subtle whenever it changed colour. You could sort of work out that something had changed, but you weren’t quite sure what to begin with, if that makes sense?



There was also no rhyme or reason to it. While the crew were serving lunch, the lighting just changed, and even the stewardess jumped, and told us she still hadn’t been able to get used to it.

This was pretty much the view from our window, when we weren’t playing around with tinting it, for the majority of our journey:



Not long after take-off, we were brought first hot towels (and wow, these were hot, I couldn’t hold the darned things, they were so hot! ) and then a choice of drinks, before lunch was served. There were three choices for lunch, as there always are, and I was disappointed that there was no fish dish, but two meat choices and a vegetarian. Thankfully, the vegetarian one was one that I was very happy with. I went for the vegetable moussaka, a Greek classic with a twist – mixed roasted vegetables layered with aubergine (eggplant) slices, tomato and béchamel sauce and topped with cheese. To start off with, you had a mixed salad, made up of oranges and sultanas on fresh crisp leaves with a pomegranate and raspberry dressing. This was one of the best salads I’ve ever had in my life, it was that good. The flavours were superb and I absolutely adored the dressing. I wasn’t sure about it at first, but then I couldn’t get enough of it after a while. It was lovely, and I’m not normally a fan of dressings. I was disappointed to see that the dessert was apple Normandy cake with crème Anglaise, which of course I couldn’t have, so Mark had it. I did ask if they had anything else though…



Mark did toy with the idea of the chicken tikka, but the stewardess said it was a bit on the hot side, so he decided to play it safe and stuck with the cottage pie, rich minced beef with a parsley mashed potato top and green beans, although it did look a bit dry to me.



Once we’d finished our lunch and they were clearing everything away, the stewardess who said she’d try and find me another dessert told me that they were still looking, and if they found something, they’d bring it out to me. Well, she was as good as her word, because not long after, this turned up, a chocolate cheesecake with raspberry sauce, and it was delicious. Now that’s what I call service.



I thought the food was once again first class. It’s something Virgin Atlantic do really seem to have stepped up the quality on big time.

As for the entertainment, well with the new planes, we had the facility to play and pause movies, which is a big bonus, and to go back to the place you left it. It’s just as well as we did, as something happened about half an hour into the flight and the entire entertainment system had to be rebooted. Thankfully that only took about five minutes.

I settled down to watch the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, as I’d enjoyed the first one, and I felt I needed something that would make me laugh or smile at the least after the events of the last day. It certainly did that. There were some wonderful lines in it, and it didn’t feel like a second rate sequel in the least. I think I enjoyed it just as much as the first film, if not more. There is a line in it about “death by cow” and don’t worry, it doesn’t mean that any cows were hurt, otherwise I wouldn’t find that funny in the slightest, but this bit was very funny, and those cows get everywhere these days.

After that finished, I settled down to sleep for about an hour or so, although I don’t think I did sleep much in the end. The only point where I did, a song from one of Cirque du Soleil’s shows came on, and in my half asleep state, scared the living daylights out of me, as suddenly it sounded like someone was shouting at me. That is the only problem with putting your iPod on random, you never quite know what you’re going to get next…

When I woke up, we had about three hours to go, and I checked out their very neat sky map system, which you could have either on the monitor…



… or the handset…



That’s a very nice touch, as it means you can constantly keep an eye on where you are, while still watching a movie. On the last flight, it was a pain trying to flip between the two.

The next movie I watched was Danny Collins, which I really enjoyed. It was a great feel good movie, and just what I needed, something a little bit upbeat, again to cheer me up.

Eventually, we were coming in over land, although we still had three hours of the flight to go…



Next: “you need to put an egg timer on how long you’re spending with people”

It never ceases to amaze me the way people rush to board first, even on flights where you have allocated seats. And the thing that really amazes me is it is usually economy travellers, Now i can understand wanting to get to your first class seat and free champagne quickly but rushing to get to your 16" cattle class seat that you will be stuck in for 14 hours baffles me.

The last time I flew Emirates I was lucky enough to get a first class upgrade and there were 3 of us in the cabin. When they started boarding they were very clear they wanted first class only (boarding through a different door on a different level) and 100 people rushed down the shute and had to come back and go down the stairs to their boarding shute.

Was that Virgin Premium Economy the food looks good.

Mood lighting? It would put me in a very bad mood! The food sounds wonderful, though.

The food on your flight looked first class! I remember the days when the airlines would at least serve you a little sandwich on our flights. Now you get a beverage with no peanuts or pretzels! Glad that you had a couple movies that were uplifting to watch

First, thanks for the lounge info. I have a while to figure out my terminal I guess, since we don't fly home from London until August 28th!

Your meal looked delicious! Virgin Atlantic certainly seems to have most airlines beat on food.
Cool with the window tinting, but I think I could live without the weird lighting.

Wow the food looks and sounds delicious! But that lighting makes it look a weird color. The window tinting thing sounds fun. Kind of neat that you can still look out the window, just tinted. I like that idea!

That food did indeed look good, but I'm with the others on the mood lighting. That's just weird!

Oh gosh, I am so with you on that!

The last time I flew Emirates I was lucky enough to get a first class upgrade and there were 3 of us in the cabin. When they started boarding they were very clear they wanted first class only (boarding through a different door on a different level) and 100 people rushed down the shute and had to come back and go down the stairs to their boarding shute.
Wow!

Was that Virgin Premium Economy the food looks good.
It was, the food was excellent. I didn't taste the food on BA on the way back, but Mark wasn't very impressed.
