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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

Frozen Ever After...still tough to get FP?

We're headed to WDW in October. Are FPs for Frozen Ever After still tough to get, or have they evened out a bit?

They were still rather tough in September. I could not get one until 5:00 on most days, and that was just over 60 days out.

Still easier than Flights of Passage in Pandora!

How did you get your FP's before 60 days?

Okay, that makes more sense. I was thinking you found a way to get FP's before your 60 days out (can you tell it's a Monday?)

We got them in May, early in the morning on one of our Epcot days, about 9:30ish. We ate breakfast at Akershus at 8:00, visited Anna and Elsa in the Sommerhaus, and then hit the FP for FEA. I did book at 60 days out.

Yes! I only get 30 days out and my first one is in 3 weeks in the evening.

Something you might want to try, splitting your party in half or try single FPs and see if you can get overlapping times. My friend and I do this as we are not linked. We can even get FPs while we are in the parking lot for most attractions. It takes a bit of going back in to the app and refreshing as the times change every few seconds. My husband and I used this technique when our friends came down for a vacation. They had a FP for their group for something and I tried searching for 2 in the park and could get nothing, but when I tried single FPs both DH and I could get overlapping times with their group. We all got to ride at the same time. I've had good success with it.

DH just got one for it a few minutes ago for our trip the first week of October. Trying at 10:30 ET is somewhat after FP window opening time.

So, it may not be that hard to get mid-week rather than on a weekend unless your trip is near Halloween perhaps.

I also had success getting one during the first week of Oct yesterday. I didn't do my FPs until like 3 in the afternoon and was able to get a decently early Frozen (noon) and also get Flight of Passage!

I don't know how, but I managed to get one for March 6, but I did reserve it a few weeks ago. I expected it to be sold out and was pleasantly surprised. However, I did not get one for Flight of Passage and won't be standing in that long line.

well..easily got my FP for 3:20. Arrived there last Wed. and the attraction was closed due to malfunction/breakdown, etc. Tried going back later in evening during extra magic hours and it was still closed down. They told us we could use the FP for any time at any other FP attraction. We went over to Soarin but didn't need a FP as the line wasn't that bad. Anyhow, I guess Frozen wasn't in the cards again this year (could't get a FP last year). Oh well.
