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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

Another ADR, maybe a World of Color and/or Fantasmic dining packages, and Flights

This is the first morning in months that I have risen before Luke. For some months now he has been getting up sometime between 5:00 and 6:00, earlier than when he got up for work. But he slept today until 8:30. So I quietly headed to the living room around 7:30 to make another reservation. Today I was booking Carthay Circle, which happens to be one of the World of Color dining package restaurants. Therefore, like Wine Country Trattoria and Blue Bayou, my only option, at least right now, was for lunch. I got the latest lunch slot available at 3:00 PM. I will keep checking to see when dinner ressie open up and probably change it at that time. This reservation is for three because Heather (ilovedisney247) will be joining us for dinner or late lunch (if I canít get it later). This is the only one of my choices that Luke wasnít sure about, but he didnít have another option for it, so Iím hoping he likes it. Tomorrow should be my last day to make ADRs, but Iíll still be working on those two dinner packages until Iím successful.

Flights:

After we drove down successfully to Orlando in December last year, Luke and I both kept tossing around the idea of driving down in May. The deciding factor came when we realized that if we did not fly in May, and thereby saved our Southwest reward points, our flights to California would be quite a bit more affordable. Luke researched the flights on SWA both leaving from Nashville, TN, and Louisville, KY. We had already planned for our arrival and departure days to be non-park days, so that gave us some leeway in times to fly. To get the most out of our points, we ended up choosing to fly out of Louisville like we did last October. The flights from there have layovers, but are so much cheaper than the nonstop flights from Nashville that we decided the savings was worth it. Now Luke had to do some interesting math to get the points to work for us. First, he had more points than I did, so he needed to transfer some of his points to my account. Because of that transfer, he had to book his flights there and back and mine there on one order. Then he had to book my flight home separately once the transfer went through, which I remember was a day or two later. For a short time, I thought I might be moving to California. When all was said and done, our out-of-pocket expense was just over $200. Not bad for round trip flights from Kentucky to California.

NEXT: Last ADR of the Trip

It worked out nicely for you to use the SW rewards points for your flights! $200 OOP expense is awesome!

Saving our points by driving really did save us a lot of money.

I had no idea the GC would be so hard to book! Good to know as early October is the time I'd like to go to DL too.
That is excellent airfare!
Good luck with those dining packages. And great that you'll see Heather too. And I realized we'll be on DCL while you're in Cali!

Great with the planning and especially the flights, with a bit of work as you saved quite a bit! Seems like some other great ADRs and other stuff. But then again, I'm not that familiar with the DLR eateries as I have yet to visit there, but hope to eventually! I guess, I just need to set my mind to it and do it, but worried a bit as it may not live up to my WDW standards as far as dining and hotels! Don;t know much about either. The GC seems great but pricey and don't know how good the other DL hotels are!

Score on the flights! We, too, used RR points. I had a bunch of points and got 3 RT flights for just about $150

Sounds like your dining plans are coming together. Don't forget to use your DVC discount. We found that we were able to apply it most places, both TS and QS. Many more than WDW!

I guess you're like me! I'd much rather take the fun, magical bus than the boring blue Super Shuttle, that I could take in Any City, USA. And to answer your question, yes, you can take it back to the airport. When you book, they will schedule a return pickup based on your flight time, and then you just meet them in front of the GC at the appointed time.

Like you, I'd been saving my SWA points for my trip, but Delta had a great fare sale in February, and I was able to book cheap, direct flights with them. Southwest also had cheap fares then, but I would've had to change planes in both directions, so I took the Delta deal, and I used my SWA points for a trip to WDW in November!

Good job on using the RR points. We just love the availability to use our for our trips to WDW. It looks like tings are shaping up and I hope that the package deals come out soon. I'm such a planner that would be killing me as I am sure it is you too!

We hadn't realized how quickly GC would book up either, so Luke initially was casual in his approach. I hadn't paid close attention to dates to realize we'd be vacation at the same time though on opposite ends of the country.

There is no way Luke and I could stay at GC without using DVC points. Of course, that is a big reason we purchased DVC to stay deluxe.

Luke had found the DVC discount info online and I'm making a note on my ADR sheet of all the ones that have the discount. We'll have to remember to check each time we do CS, too.
