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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

We spent a couple of hours there. We didn't rush through and just had a great time.

I agree. I was surprised we could actually touch them too.

That is so funny. And that's why I decided to watch all the movies before going to Infinity War. Claire had seen a couple of them and knew info on all, but we were so glad we watch them all before this movie. Now we want to watch them all again.

It was really big. I am glad we decided to visit this trip.

We all know that the day after Thanksgiving is for shopping…and where better to do it than NYC!

Aunt Mary decided to order a van to drive us over to Macy’s as a group. We told her not to but she insisted it was cheaper than taking taxis….I am pretty sure she is wrong (more like lying), but you just can’t argue with her.

We gathered in the hall to get ready to leave.

nyc199 by Jenseib, on Flickr

nyc236 by Jenseib, on Flickr

And we headed down and our party van was waiting.

nyc209 by Jenseib, on Flickr

Amanda was feeling sick again and Aunt Mary was staying with her till she decided if she was well enough to come.

nyc163 by Jenseib, on Flickr

nyc235 by Jenseib, on Flickr

Amanda felt a little better and Aunt Mary messaged us that they were on their way down.

nyc210 by Jenseib, on Flickr

nyc186 by Jenseib, on Flickr

And off we went. Really, Macy’s is not that far away and we could even walk to it if we wanted to. But this made Aunt Mary happy.

First thing we did was head to an area where you can pick up a discount visitor pass, only to find out that they had a better pass for this weekend for everyone. In reality, I wasn’t here to shop, so it didn’t matter to me.

macy45 by Jenseib, on Flickr

Then Abby wrote a letter to Santa.

nyc234 by Jenseib, on Flickr

I took various pictures while she worked on her letter.

macy46 by Jenseib, on Flickr

macy47 by Jenseib, on Flickr

macy3 by Jenseib, on Flickr

macy4 by Jenseib, on Flickr

macy5 by Jenseib, on Flickr

They were filming, but I couldn’t get close enough to see if it was the news or something else.

macy6 by Jenseib, on Flickr

macy7 by Jenseib, on Flickr

All finished

nyc164 by Jenseib, on Flickr

We then headed to see Santa. Last time we were able to schedule an appointment and basically got in the “fastpass” line for Santa. We had read it was going to be a little different this year, but we weren’t clear on it. So Gail checks us in and the tell us to get in line….the line wraps around and around and through all sorts of departments. Gail goes back and tells them no, we have an appointment. They tell her the appointment is to get in line….that’s it! The line we found out was going to be over 2 hours. We asked the kids….mainly Abby…if they wanted to wait or not. The 2 older said no, and Abby said she didn’t want to wait and would see him some other time…so they went and shopped around and I went outside to look at the window displays.

The theme was basically Christmas in New York.

Oh my goodness, that is crazy - an appointment to get in a two hour line! Thank goodness no-one wanted to do that. I do think you were brave heading into Macy's on Black Friday. I'd expect it to be crazy!

I'm not surprised that the line was 2 hours long on Black Friday but I'm glad the kids decided to visit with Santa another time. I got to see the windows decorated for Christmas a couple of times this past holiday and it was just so adorable! Glad you got to go shopping in style, thanks to Aunt Mary!

It was so dumb. Why would people do that? Of course others would join in line too without an appointment so I am not sure what the purpose was.

You know, I didn't feel like the stores were crazy crowded...yes crowded but I find it worse here at home.


Aunt Mary spoils all of us.

I then turned the corner to see the windows on the other side of the building. This one seems to have the same theme for several years, which is “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus”.

I moved on around the building and looked at other windows as well.

I then took some shots of the Empire State Building.

macy34 by Jenseib, on Flickr

More windows.

macy35 by Jenseib, on Flickr

macy37 by Jenseib, on Flickr

I decided to walk the complete circle around Macy’s and came across these parked along one street.

macy39 by Jenseib, on Flickr

Teeny Tiny Police cars. They cracked me up.

macy62 by Jenseib, on Flickr

And then across the street…this was in an upper window. You just KNOW someone did this on purpose.

macy63 by Jenseib, on Flickr

I went back inside then and eventually met up with the family. Some had left and others were shopping. While I waited for them all to come down I took a few pictures.

We moved on and did some shopping in nearby stores. Claire and Alexis had a few places they wanted to go to, but neither bought much.

I love all the beautifully decorated windows. I wish the still did that in Cleveland. It was so pretty when I was a child.
