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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

If you haven't done the Cirq, I would recommend the show as a nice add on.

Carriage ride is on the list and will stay there for now at least. I know we won't be able to do everything on the list.
I'd love to see the Cirque show, so that's going on as well. I'll add the Character in Flight balloon too.

We did just that on our 10th anniversary...10 nights at the Poly with the boys. It was actually our first trip with all 5 of us (Jason's first). We did the Wishes cruise. At the time it was a grand gathering and our parents (and my nephew) joined us for the second half of our trip so we qualified. That was a highlight and we loved it!!

Hmmm...I'd say definitely Poly if you can swing that. I know BC is my fave but with all the changes and the view of Wishes from the beach with a pina colada and no kids is great!

And of course wear the pins every day!!

I will definitely be trying for the Poly with GF as a runner up. AKL will be booked at 11 months - just in case. I'd love to do one of the fireworks cruises too.
I think the photo shoot will happen if the photographer is still around! So very excited about that!

So many of us planning anniversary trips!!

I think that you have a great list started. And I didn't know there was a hot air balloon ride at DTD. I'm going to have to look in to that, as well as check prices for Cirque.

I hope everyone has a wonderful anniversary trip!

P.S. Our sons came with us on our previous anniversary trips, but they're adults now, so this time it will be just DH and I.

I'm starting early on my wish list - already know the boys can't do the pirate cruise while we do tea - pirate cruises are in the morning, tea is in the afternoon, BUT they both said they would do the tea - chocolate milk sold them I think.

A few ideas

A couple's massage
Doing a progressive meal along all the monorail stops
Try the new land to sea car/boat tour at Disney Springs
Do a VIP tour at one of the parks
Dancing whenever you stop to watch a musical performance
Kiss in front of the castle during the "Kiss Goodnight"

Ok, so I love Animal Kingdom Lodge and villas...so I would choose there. However, even if you don't stay there, I would recommend dining there for that *nice* dinner. We LOVE Jiko and Sanaa. Jiko is a wonderful couples dinner...Sanaa maybe with the kids (or without) since it has such wonderful Savannah views.

Enjoy! Love your bucket list!!!

Thank you! We love AKL and it's our DVC home. We love Sanaa too, but haven't tried Jiko yet.
