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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

The spa is very beautiful and love the lighting and especially those stone chairs! I hope the other two enjoy it as much as Mark and especially as you do always! I love that makeshift awning across the shopping promenade as so well done!

The hot stone chairs look so calming. Bummer thought that the steam room wasn't really steamy.

Anne and Sara had been before and absolutely loved it and so did Sean. It seems to have that effect on everyone - remember how much Jan loved it when she came with us last year?

That was a bit of a shame and I don't think it would've taken much to overcome that - just put it on a bit earlier?

Saturday 16 June – part three: relaxing in the rooftop pool

You re-join us at the Bath Thermae Spa. After sampling the steam room, I headed into the aromatic steam room next and had it to myself for quite a while, which was lovely. I loved the fact I could feel the steam clearing out my sinuses, one of the greatest things about using a steam room. Anne and Sara joined me and it was around this point that we had two maintenance guys come in to try and fix the speaker in the steam room. Now this was bad enough, but they kept the door open, which I understand, as they were in normal clothes, but it defeated the whole point of having a steam room, as all you could feel was the cold air rushing in from outside. It was a real pain.



We then headed into the infrared sauna. It didn’t feel that warm, but trust me, it did still pack a punch, as after a few minutes, I could really feel my back heating up dramatically.



Having done everything in there, we made our way up to the rooftop pool, which everyone who comes to the spa generally loves. Sean was no exception. It was nicely full in here – a fair few people, but not overcrowded. We spent probably a good half hour or so in here, just floating around and enjoying the bubbles that erupt every so often. It was just very relaxing.




While we were in there, we noticed a helicopter hovering over somewhere in Bath, but we couldn’t work it out. I did ask the two lifeguards, but they had no idea either. Goodness knows what was going on there.

Eventually we dragged ourselves out of the pool and thankfully the air temperature wasn’t too bad when we got out of the water. Sometimes, in the winter months, you literally get out and freeze. It wasn’t overly warm, but it was Ok.

We took the elevator down to the bottom floor, so we could go in the indoor Minerva pool.



This was very pleasant to begin with, but like everything else here, it started to get more and more crowded, the later it got. We floated around the lazy pool a few times, but when I saw a hen party of about a dozen women coming down, that was it for me. I headed out and the others joined me a few minutes later.

We decided to go and have a final session in the wellness suite, but what a change from first thing this morning. There was now a queue for the hot stone chairs and I dread to think how long they were all waiting, as I’m sure people weren’t budging from that room quickly!

I noticed people standing in the steam room and the aromatic steam room just about had enough seating for everyone. I spent some more time in there, then I used some of the showers they have here. You can either have an overhead one or ones from the side and I went for the side ones, which were very nice, but seemed to end just as you were getting into them, if you know what I mean?

Eventually I went out on the balcony outside for a few minutes just to cool down and to admire the view below. I even saw a tour party down on the street and I could see things were being pointed out to them, including (no doubt!) the Bath Spa, as they were all staring up at it. I felt very special at that moment, the only person out on the balcony. It was as if it was my own!

We headed down to the showers and thankfully they’ve changed these. Now you shower in your swimming gear, as all the curtains have gone. It means they can have more showers, which is good, as we’ve always complained they don’t have enough here. They have dispensers for shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, so you don’t have to drag yours down from the changing room above. Another good move. I’m guessing they had complaints from guests about a) how long it took to wait for a shower and b) the fact that the towels were hard to keep up, shall we say, as you headed upstairs to the changing rooms. I always felt self conscious about that and kept saying the showers needed to be right next door to the changing area, not on a different floor.

We changed and headed out, with me stopping in the Spa shop on the way, as I’d seen teddy bears wearing a Bath Spa dressing gown, which appealed to me. What I didn’t know until Mark told me afterwards is that Sara wanted to get one for me. She’d already found out how much it was on the way in, but I beat her to it. Boy, did I feel bad when Mark told me that!

Next: did no-one else realise it was mixed?

Oh well, if you insist then...I hope you appreciate teddy is very camera shy and it took a lot of hard work to persuade him to pose!



And just in case you were wondering (and I was beginning to! ), the logo is on the back...

Well, I seem to remember discussion about Ireland - Bath is in the southwest of England, so it could fit in with that...

Every time you describe a spa day, I even feel calmer afterwards. Sounds so relaxing! That teddy bear is totally adorable.
