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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

WDW: Disney Plans to Add New Venue to Wide World of Sports Complex (02-01-2016 02:02 PM)

Disney Plans to Add New Venue to Wide World of Sports Complex

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Walt Disney World has filed plans with the South Florida Water Management District to build a new venue at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex with a 180,000 square foot footprint. The project will be on 10 acres on property that currently includes wetlands. Disney has filed for permission to develop on more wetland areas.

Interesting, especially the development on wetland areas. I didn't realise Disney had wetland areas left. I guess it's a reminder of just how much land they still have to develop.

There's a LOT more land left for WDW to expand into, Cheryl. I had no idea how much until your comment got me wondering.

Here's what I found--

"Disney World in Florida is the size of a large town. Its 40 square miles make it the equivalent of San Francisco. That breaks down to more than 25,000 acres, 25 percent of which is permanently set aside as wilderness preserve land. Less than 35 percent of Disney World's land has been developed so far. The adjacent town of Celebration, Florida, was built on land formerly owned by Disney."
http://traveltips.usatoday.com/disne...rida-2108.html

Less than 35 percent is currently in use??? That's almost impossible to envision. I do recall reading elsewhere once that there is enough undeveloped land owned by Disney to build about EIGHT more theme parks.

That's so mindboggling I can't begin to imagine Disney World being that much larger!

When we were there in December a cm at one man's dream was talking with us about the wetlands, he stated that walt had wetlands that are not to be developed and preserved for the animals. Therefore the cm said if they were to make any parks bigger they would have to purchase more wetlands first. We were happy walt thought about the animals and saving them. Otherwise all the land they own would probably be built up now.

Hi there. Yeah! There's a fluctuation in the crypto online gambling right now and they're increasing and decreasing in time right now they're low. I hope that I will be satisfied using cryptocurrency for withdrawing. Of course, I hope it will be a great investment when I will use cryptocurrency as a deposit method. But I will happy to hear your opinion and that you use it for gambling. Best of luck at the game and waiting for your feedback.

Hey Gerard was that your listener question that was read out on WDW Radio podcast? I think you had them stumped with the conversion from Fahrenheit to Celsius

Hallo. Ja! Es gibt eine Fluktuation in den Krypto Online Glücksspielen, und sie nehmen mit der Zeit zu und ab, sobald sie niedrig sind. Ich hoffe, dass ich mit cryptocurrency zum Abheben zufrieden bin. Natürlich hoffe ich, dass es eine großartige Investition ist, wenn ich die Kryptowährung als Einzahlungsmethode verwende. Aber ich werde mich freuen, Ihre Meinung zu hören und dass Sie sie zum Spielen yeti casino verwenden. Viel Glück beim Spiel und warten auf Ihr Feedback.
