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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

Great pictures around the hotel! Breakfast looked decent.

I just knew a whole day of nothing would get to me, so I did some researching. Mom was onboard, but I think she really enjoyed it more than she thought she would.

We loved it too. Mom wants to take dad now to a tour in the future. I know he would love it too.

LOL! Next up...Godzilla! Just kidding. But they do get bigger as we go.

Glad to be your first! It wasn't even on my rador really till someone mentioned it. Then I remembered I had clients last year that told me they did it the day they got off the ship and enjoyed it and I started thinking more and more about it.

Something I did not know was that Holiday Park is home to the Gator Boys. There were a few signs advertising that. I do not watch the show, but my niece does…and loves it. I honestly can’t tell you much about the show, other than I have seen advertisements for it and I think they go around and rescue gators from areas they are not supposed to be in.





I took a lot of pictures while we waited, but in all honesty, we didn’t wait too long.



I laughed that this building has a no smoking sign on it, but about 6 feet away they had ashtrays out for people to smoke at.



Another gator…or perhaps the same one.





Our boat arrived and docked and we were told that everyone would get a picture before getting on. Some people told them they didn’t want one, but they said it was mandatory for everyone as it also gave a head count and visual for when the boat arrived back.

We smiled…never planning on getting the picture….but wouldn’t you know, it was actually a nice picture and mom bought it.



We then headed down to the dock to get on the boat.



Our Captain came around to talk to us and there was a foreign family there that just kept talking and it made it hard to hear them. Seriously? You can’t be quiet for a few minutes to get instructions? They also had sort of a brat kid with them. They had several kids, but one was annoying. As we floated along he has some drink and he kept slurping it up…and obviously there was nothing left, but he kept at it with his straw. That is one of the most annoying things to my mother….like nails on a chalk board….and I thought she was going to jump back 3 rows to whip that cup out of his hand. Others kept turning and looking at him too and glaring. Finally toward the end of the trip, with his mother not doing anything, his grandmother told him he was done and took the cup away from him.
Anyways….the captain gave some details of what would happen and NOT to stick your hands in the water what so ever! These are wild animals. He said he knew how to call them to come towards the boat, but they were not trained or friendly at all.

He also told us our boat had recently been fixed and he was going to get to test her out today and see how fast she would go.



These guys floated by as we were waiting to take off.





The captain talking to us.



And off we go.















It’s kind of hard to see, but there is a bird with his wings spread out in these trees.





Our captain told us the kind of bird it was, but I no longer remember, nor was the name familiar to me.



These are not lily pads. They are called Spatterdocks. I think they are in the lily family, but not lillypads.

I think he annoyed Mom much more than me.

I thought it was a nice photo too.

Very nice photo of you and your mom! Sorry you had the "brat" to contend with

When we went, we were closer to Miami and ended up choosing a private ride - it was not much more than the regular one - and I had seen a family with a TON of kids not so well behaved and that sealed the private deal for me Our boat was open on top - interesting that yours had a cover on it!

The bird is probably a cormorant. They dive for fish, and then spread their wings to dry.

Looking forward to the rest of your boat tour - our backyard in Florida is a swamp, so we regularly see gators and more.

I have heard others saying they have done an open top too. I guess there is good and bad to both, but it did keep the sun off our heads!

The first trail we took was going to be the longest and fastest one of the trip. I must say it was pretty darn cool. We would got straight and then swerve to the left or right but still gliding in the same directions…so at times we were going forward to the end but sideways.







A look back.





That was super cool!

We then floated around an island to look for an iguana.



We were also told not to touch the yellow flower of the spatterdock. I can’t remember if the flower was poisonous or the bug that lived inside, but he said we would be burning and itching before we got back if we touched it.



It was amazing how clear the water was too.



I had thought of the Everglades as swamp and as a swamp I think of muddy murky water. This was not the case. We were also told the Everglades is a river that is 50 miles wide and 100 miles long. That explains why my google searches came up with so many different options near and far away.

As we floated around the island where our captain thought the iguana would be we spotted these birds.



He told us that their spit would be dangerous and could make us paralyzed….it made me think of Jurassic Park.



They didn’t seem all too happy to see us either.



And then someone spotted the iguana. This was not actually the one we were looking for though. I believe this was the female.



She moved along the branch…..and then peed. How many of you can say you’ve taken a picture of an iguana peeing?





We kept on look for the male…I took a picture of the reeds.



There he is! Our captain was great about turning the boat around so each side could see things.



It’s hard to tell in pictures….but he was pretty darn big.





His girlfriend went to find him then.



And then we moved on again.

I spent many vacations in Ft. Lauderdale visiting family but I've never been to the Everglades. I have eaten at that restaurant, though. It's around the corner from my late in-laws house.
The hotel looks very nice and I can't wait to read more about the cruise.
