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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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!

That hunting group was a tad scary! I'm thinking that they needed an excuse for why their client wasn't going to get a bear. Lunch and your birthday cake both look so delicious!

Wow, that encounter with the hunting group was a bit scary. Great day otherwise, although I'm with you about stopping all the time to see the lichens.

Catching up again. I had to laugh at the glazed donut comment and the speech bubble. Kidnapping Marvin Martian, ha! Scary looking hunting party. Your close ups are great of the sea creatures! Who knew sea lettuce could be so pretty!

Nope - it didn't look like a fair fight to me either. Supposedly, they cannot shoot a bear from a boat. So, I'm not sure how they land and then get to the bear - hopefully not very often.

Yes, Roberta - permits were required. Sometimes, they limited the number of people who could go on shore in a given day, as well.

As for today's post, it was another enjoyable one. I laughed about Marvin (where was his trusty dog though?) Sorry about the hunters, to me their behavior says they're the ones who shouldn't have been there (but that's just my interpretation). Can't wait to read and see more.
It is a combination of what you see and what the camera sees, Darlene. I guess the hunters had a right to be there, it's just not my thing. We were glad to see them leaving later.

I agree - they were probably unhappy because they only had a few hours left, and no bears in sight!

The guides were so passionate about every bit of nature, it was hard to fault them, but it got a little tiring to stop every few minutes.

Thanks. It was weird seeing all the intertidal creatures so close - and easily - they were everywhere tucked in the rocks.

Friday, May 31st - Another Day, Another Glacier ...


It was hard to believe this was our last full cruising day for Week No. 2's adventure. Our destination was Dawes Glacier, at the end of Endicott Arm:





I didn't get up until later today - the Yoga Class was in full session, and I had to cut through it to get downstairs:





I did remember to check out today's menu:





And then, out to the bow to see where we were heading:










We couldn't see Dawes Glacier yet, but there were some ice bergs (or bergy bits) in the water. Nothing quite as dramatic as what we saw at the Sawyer Glaciers, but still interesting:










Lowering one of the skiffs, so they could go check out the area by the Glacier:





One of many waterfalls in the area:





It was raining slightly - and it was cold - when we set out on our Skiff Tour, but that only added to the atmosphere:





We weren't out long when we heard the thunder of something happening at the Glacier. This doesn't always mean you'll see calving, but in this case it did:










We saw lots of calving, and felt the waves. We cruised along the shoreline, looking at the rocks and waterfalls. Took this photo as we circled back around to the ship. It looks as though the ship is right next to the Glacier - it's about a half mile away from it:





A couple of close up views of the glacier face:










Our hour long skiff ride was over, and we reboarded the ship. Chris was waiting with hot chocolate:





A couple of healthy folks taking advantage of the view and getting their exercise, since there were no hikes today:





We had Cajun Pasta for lunch, but best of all was a delicious strawberry/rhubarb cobbler:





This guy was enjoying the view while warming up in the hot tub (you can see some calving action on the right side of the glacier):





We hung around the glacier until after 3pm - seems like a long time, but it was great because there was so much calving going on:










Ice perched in an odd place - possibly deposited on the rocks during one of the waves from a large calving:





One way to take a photo without getting wet (it did stop raining after lunch):





There was nowhere near as much ice here as there had been at Tracy Arm, but some large pieces remained. You may also have noticed that the different blue colors are nowhere near as dramatic here as they were at the Sawyer Glaciers. Most likely due to the weather conditions, and possibly the density of the ice we could see at the face of the glacier.





Showing where the glacial water meets the ocean:





A better view of the whole glacier as we start out of Endicott Arm:





A small 12-passenger boat - the Sea Wolf - we would see this boat often in the coming week.





Since this was our final day, that meant it was time for the Polar Plunge !!! Again, there were lots of crazy people jumping in the water. It was only 38 degrees (F) - 3 degrees C





They had to stop every few jumpers in order to move the floating ice bits out of the way:





Marvin had to be rescued!





The crazy Polar Plungers enjoying hot chocolate in the hot tub:





Everyone was in a good mood, and the last evening was enjoyable. Dinner was good:










After dinner, we enjoyed the slide presentation of the week prepared by the staff. One of the gals had asked Lou to also share some photos, so he prepared a short slide show from our photos. A few other guests shared some as well. I was glad to see Lou do this, because it's been a chore getting him back into photography. He still didn't do a lot on the trip, but he got some great photos, and has renewed his interest.


Up Next: It's raining, we must be in Juneau ...

I can't believe this is the last day already - it seemed to be zooming by! I'm still amazed by those who were brave/foolish enough to dive in... I guess at least getting a hot chocolate in the hot tub is some reward, but to be honest, I think that's all I'd have done!

This is a real POLAR plunge. The ones we see around here in western NC (usually in Feb) would be quite balmy by comparison. It is sad to see the changes in the size of the glaciers as the temp seems to be rising worldwide. Was the calving due to the melting or was it just due to the movement?

This week went so fast! The shots of the glacier are wonderful. What a lot of calving action! There really is nothing like that glacier-blue. Those plungers are crazy! They do look happy in the hot tub, though. I'm glad Lou got more into photography again and it was nice to have a chance to share your photos. Time to leave the ship again!

2nd week over already. That sure went fast!! Lost of calving going on. That would be my question too. was it because of the some kind of movement or the melting and how warm it has been everywhere? Do you have to pack and leave this time or just the same as last week?

The 2nd week did go by quickly. The polar plungers were crazy. I was surprised how many of the people who were on the first week repeated the plunge - they must have found it invigorating.

I think much of the calving we saw was due to movement. It hadn't really started to warm up a lot in the area yet. An interesting side note - when we were in the Arctic, we visited a museum where they showed remnants of an old mining town that had been "found" after a period of a glacier receding. So, while I don't doubt the phenomenon of Global Warming, you also have to wonder about geological cycles, and what is normal and abnormal.

Thanks, Laurie. Seeing all of the calving definitely made it an interesting day.

I touched on the calving up above - although the fact is, I don't know for sure. We did have to pack up this time
