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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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 Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique "type" makeovers coming to DHS

Frozen 'Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique'-type experience coming to Frozen Summer Fun at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Abby wouldn't want this done (she's too old anyway I believe) but I know others out there may be quite interested in having this done. I have to work the next couple of days but if I "hear" more, I'll post it.

I'm sure this will be very, very popular... I can just how tough it's going to be to get bookings for this already....

I think for every 5 year old Frozen fan in HS there are 5 teen girls singing "Let it Go" at the top of their lungs. I wonder if this will be open to all ages ....

Our DD would love this!! Going to have to keep my eyes open for when they announce it officially. I just wish there was a meet & greet/photo op with Anna & Elsa there.

Anxiously waiting to hear more details about this, we leave in a few days and will be at DHS during what could be considered "mid-July". Might even cancel BBB for this, so if anyone hears any info, please share here. We're hoping this is similar to what they have at Downtown Disney in Disneyland, as the prices seem reasonable while offering a unique experience.

Thanks!

I'm posting to tag along as we'll be there in late September and would love this as well since we are missing Frozen Summer Fun by a few weeks.

Saw this today & remembered you had started this thread Darlene so I thought I would post this update for you & everyone else with little Frozen lovers.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...+Parks+Blog%29

The prices are a little steep but it is for 1 child & up to 6 accompanying adults so maybe it is justified. What is your opinions? I think despite the price this is going to be super popular. Reservations are available beginning tomorrow.

This is the first opportunity I've had to get online today. I know I promised to put any new info I found but since you found it first, I'm glad you thought to put it here - thank you so much for doing that.

We leave tomorrow but I'm kind of glad we missed it after seeing the pricing. We did BBB for less and that still seems like the better experience to me. It will no doubt be popular, however, and I'd be shocked if this didn't continue beyond September, much like the show did last year.

No problem Darlene - I was killing time waiting for JB to want to get out of bed. He has a small fever so I didn't want to push him.

I'm bummed that it's not going past Sept 7, but I do think that BBB and the Mermaid/Pirate makeover is a better deal IMO.
