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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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 still haven't been on the new Soarin' ride. We need to plan a trip so we can take in all the newer attractions. Guess I will have to live vicariously through you a while longer!

I'll keep sharing and sending that you can make a trip sooner rather than later.

NEXT: Day 12

Saturday, May 12

Today starts in Florida and ends in Kentucky, always a little surreal. Our plan is to be up early and completely packed in order to check our bags at Resort Airline Check to drop off our luggage. Then we値l check our carry-on bags with Bell Services before heading on to the bus stop for a ride to Animal Kingdom. This shouldn稚 be a problem because I start packing little by little a few days before the trip is to end.

Animal Kingdom opens at 8:00 today for Extra Magic Hours, but I doubt we値l be there right at 8:00 since we値l be checking our bags. We have coordinated our FastPasses with Linda and Pete so that we値l get to ride all three together. WooHoo! First up is Kilimanjaro Safari, so I値l have one last visit with my giraffes before heading home. Our window is 9:00 10:00. I知 hoping an early time will mean more animal interactions.

From Africa we値l all head to Pandora for our final ride on Flight of Passage with a time of 10:10 11:10. It will be so exciting to ride this along with friends. Then we are off to Asia where Luke can ride Expedition Everest back to back using my FastPass since this is not one I can do. We値l have time for lunch while here and we致e thrown around several ideas, including Satu値i Canteen (our new favorite) of Flame Tree BBQ (our old favorite). We値l see where we wind up when May 12 arrives.

We are guessing Disney痴 Magical Express will be scheduled for around 3:00 PM, so we値l head to the bus stops around 2:00 to catch a ride back to the resort. We値l need time to gather up our bags from Bell Services and say goodbye to Kidani Village until October. You know we値l be back to Sanaa. Once DME arrives we値l board and soon be passing out of the magical bubble and back into the real world.

I知 sure we値l get a light dinner somewhere at the airport before our flight takes off at 6:05. About an hour and forty-five minutes later if our flight is on time, we値l land in Nashville. There we値l pick up our luggage from baggage claim, call for our shuttle, and soon return to our car. Then we池e on the road for another two and half hours. Hopefully, we値l arrive home around 10:00, exhausted from another wonderful trip to our happy place. The laundry and unpacking can wait until tomorrow. And a few days later, the trip report will begin.

Spring/Fitness Update: Wednesday, April 18 I volunteer on Wednesday afternoon, so if we want to walk, we try to get out no later than 11:00. The temperature was supposed to reach the upper 70s, but not until later afternoon, but it was at least in the mid 60s when we were ready to walk. We stopped to talk to a neighbor who also loves Disney plus other US travel, which kept us from making a full 5K, but we did walk 2.94 miles/over 4K.

Today, Thursday, April 19 Every time we致e gotten a day in the 70s, the next day struggles to get into the 50s. We decided since we could delay our walk until late afternoon, we would run to Target for our monthly + travel needs. When we finished shopping, it was noon, and that lead us to McDonald痴 for lunch. By the time we got home it was nearing 50 degrees so while I unpacked everything Luke got ready to mow the yard. As I unpacked I checked through all our travel toiletries to be sure we had gotten almost everything. A few items were not available at Target so we値l make a trip across town to Meijer this weekend. My work unpacking didn稚 take too long, so I was able to do some scrapbooking, too. After Luke finished the lawn work, we took a shorter walk of 2 miles and the temperature was now 55. Chilly, but not too bad.

Sounds like a great last day with some nice PP+s. Always tough on the last day to get everything set into your schedule with not the time you'd like. But seems it's well set with some great plans with Linda and Pete! Even better as finishing off with FOP and not a better way to finish off your trip! Glad you have it all planned with airline check in etc so you can enjoy so much before going home!

You really did luck out with Flight of Passage Fastpasses for this trip! I'm sure there are a lot of people reading this feeling very envious of you.

You're doing great with the walking. I'm sure you're probably Disney ready with a while to go yet...

The last day is always a little sad but I'm so glad that we get to spend it together. So excited about riding FOP with you both!!! We have a late flight at 8:35 pm so we'll stay in the park until about 5:30. We might decide to go to Epcot in the afternoon to have one last look at the F&G Festival. It's still been quite chilly in NJ with the winds which has made me quite lazy about getting out to walk. Hopefully this coming week will bring some warmer temps and I'll get these legs moving.

Now if it all goes as planned we will get in a last bit of fun before heading home.

We did get very lucky with Luke being able to score 3 FOP FastPasses this trip. It does help that we have three AK days planned duirng our trip. I think we will get to walk every day between now and May 1 so that should really help.

We have flowers coming back up and it has been so weird to see them in snow. We also have a lot of blooming trees, so I guess we're not doing too badly.

We're going to have a blast on FOP. Hope this coming week brings you much better weather. Ours is still supposed to be cooler than normal, but the highs at least will be in the 60s.

NEXT: Photo Challenge

Some of you who follow my posts on Facebook know that since last fall I have been doing monthly photo challenges to practice and improve my photography skills. I intend to continue these daily photos while on our trip. I don稚 plan the photos ahead of time, but over the course of the day I look for inspiration from my surroundings. Disney World is going to offer me lots and lots of inspiration.

Here痴 the list:

5/1 Travel Day and Animal Kingdom Self- Portrait (This should be easy as we usually take two or three selfies on our way down.)

5/2 Magic Kingdom On the Wall (This one I may have a plan for as I致e recently learned about the purple wall, and Disney has even upgraded it over the past few weeks.)

5/3 Epcot Black & White

5/4 Hollywood Studios -- Delicious (I see a food photo in my future as we値l be dining at Beaches & Cream. Maybe I can remember during each sit down meal this trip to take some photos or maybe not.)

5/5 Animal Kingdom My View Today (Remember this is the day of our tour, A Path Less Traveled. I知 going to have an awesome view to record.)

5/6 Magic Kingdom Fur or Feathers (This one might have been easier on an AK day, but hopefully, I will see some critter during this day.)

5/7 Epcot Words (I知 going to have to think on this one. Any suggestions for words in Epcot?)

5/8 Animal Kingdom Favorite Color (I actually like three colors: lime green, yellow, and orange. Wonder if I could find something here with all three.)

5/9 Hollywood Studios Broken (Sounds a little sad to be looking for something broken in Disney World.)

5/10 Magic Kingdom Something I Created (This one has me a little puzzled. It should be interesting to figure out that day. Again any suggestions?)

5/11 Epcot Someone I Love (This one should be easy since Luke will be with me.)

5/12 Animal Kingdom Mother Nature (Perfect! We値l be in Animal Kingdom with all sorts of nature surrounding us.)

In case you are curious, my first photo back home will be Kitchen, not too difficult. Sunday, May 13 is Mother痴 Day and I won稚 mind not having too much of a challenge for this Photo Challenge.

Spring/Fitness Update: Friday, April 20 The day started sunny, but chilly in the 40s. By a little after noon, it was 59 degrees, and we embarked on a 5K walk. WooHoo! I forgot to mention that the other day on our walk, we spotted a raccoon. Of course, the minute the raccoon spotted us, he hightailed it into the woods, a great distance from us. Today we walked a new subdivision that is connected to ours and discovered a fenced field with seven horses. Cool! I love seeing animals, and soon I値l be seeing some animals right off my balcony.

Saturday, April 21 Currently at 3:00 PM CDT, it is a lovely 71 degrees. The sun is shining, truly a magnificent day. We headed out at about 11:00 to fill up both cars with gas. We have a trip to make tomorrow in order to celebrate Luke痴 aunt痴 birthday. We also had 80 cents off per gallon of gas with our Kroger rewards points. Yeah! Then we parked near the start of a portion of the Green Belt and walked our 5K. When we started out the temperature had just reached 60 so we were in short sleeves and athletic pants, but I probably would have been fine in shorts as it warmed up over the hour we were walking.

The photo challenge sounds like a lot of fun. For the "words" in Epcot, you could take pictures of the signs for the attractions, restaurants, etc.

The photo challenge sounds like it will be fun for you and a bit of self competition. Glad you're finally getting some nice weather. Nice here in CT today sunny in low 60's.
