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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

Disney Snob Does Cedar Point

I grew up and still live about 1 hours away from Cedar Point which is a major Amusement park in Ohio. One of the top rated parks in the world!
In my preteen years we started going. My Grandparents would camp there every summer, and my sister and I got to visit the park a few times. Of course they never took us till the twilight price kicked in and of course no big rides.
As I got older, I realized I liked the thrill rides and went several times in my teens and 20’s.

Then something happened….I got old!
I was in pain many times after riding rides and the height was really bothering me. The biggest Coaster I have conquered there is the Magnum. After that, the height just got too crazy for me. And now I look at the Magnum in fear!
Over the past few years, our trips have become less and less to the Point. When my older 2 children were little, my Daughter was a huge thrill fan, while my son hated it. I got a season pass one year and we went as often as possible, with my daughter just tall enough for a few of the rides. My older 2 are now 22 and almost 19. My son stays away from the place ,and my daughter goes with friends who enjoy the rides with her.
I am now a Mom all over again to a 6 year old. I believe this was her 4th trip. She went for the 1st time when she was 2 .
She had just been to HER first trip to Disney World a few months prior and LOVED it. We have now taken her a total of 4 times and she and I can’t get enough of it. Skip could take it or leave it, but goes because we love it so.

On that 1st trip to Cedar Point we pulled up and parked. We got out of the car and I plopped her in the stroller and started to the front. She took one look and asked “what is this place?” My husband replied “This is the Point!” And Claire responded by saying “I love the POINK!” So now we always refer to Cedar Point as the “Poink”.

The last 2 years we had not been able to get to the “Poink”. My husband had hip problems and was in too much pain to even walk much. In Oct of 2009 he had his hip replaced. He was still in pain for a long time after, and finally in Oct of 2010 the Dr realized that the new hip had never adhered. (after a huge run around and many Dr visits) So in Dec. 2010 he had it replaced again. It seems to be doing better this time around, and Skip decided it was time to head back for some fun…and also to celebrate his 50th birthday, which was May 12th.

On to the Cast.

First there is Skip ~ He’s my Husband.



And Me ~ Jen



This is the ONLY shot of me all day. Skip is the worlds worst photographer, so I don’t let him take any with my camera usually, plus he hates to as well. This picture was really bad. I had to do a lot of cropping and actually straighten it as well because it was really crooked. LOL!

And then there’s Claire ~ Our 6 year old



On to the trip.

We went May 21st. Skip had decided a few days ago that if things worked out well, we would head there that Sat.
I woke early and got a shower and things packed. I also threw the stroller in the trunk. I find that if we bring it along, 1 we have a spot to carry our junk in, and 2 that Claire can last longer. She doesn’t get so tired and then Mom and Dad can have a more pleasant day as well. I know some people think a 6 year old in a stroller is wrong, and that’s fine, but it works for me. I don’t want to hear about tired feet or asking to be carried at the end of the day.
I got Claire up and ready as well.
We are Dairy farmers, so Skip had to be up early to milk the cows and get the day going. Once everything was running smoothly he came in and showered as well.
I think we hit the road around 9:30ish.
We debated which route to take, and then decided to head to the turnpike. The airport exit is only about 10 minutes from our house.
We hopped on and Skip went on to tell me about watching my speed. I always drive. He just doesn’t care too, yet he is always critiquing my driving. He had told me that the speed limit was raised, but that they were now stricter. Somehow, in a short amount of time we kind of argued about the speed. I told him had always been 70 and he said no, it wasn’t…anyways in this argument I got it in my head that the speed limit was now 75! Not a good thing to do.
We were on the road for about 7 minutes….if that and we passed two State boys sitting along side the rode. They sit in this spot all the time. I was going around 75 ish. The car in front of me was obviously going at least that same speed. As we pass the troopers, the one car kind of lurched a bit. I thought he was going to pull out and hit me and I quickly braked a bit. Not a sudden stop, but it scared me. So then I kept going…at 75. The trooper pulled out and followed me. I got in the right lane when I could and the trooper stayed in the left. Skip then told me to slow down and I told him I was going 75 and that’s when we he reminded me that it was 70! Still others were going faster.
And next thing you know, the trooper pulled in behind me and flashed the lights. UGH!

I got a ticket for speeding…going 78 is what he said. I was beyond mad. First off, when the guy came to the window (on the passenger side) Skips first words were “I kept telling her to slow down”. I about threw him into oncoming traffic!
The guy took forever too. Claire was in the backseat complaining because we were losing precious time.
Finally he came back with the most expensive ticket I have ever seen. It’s been a LONG time since I have gotten a ticket, and I guess the “price” as gone up a LOT!

So back on the road, and now I HAVE to go exactly the speed limit. I can’t chance getting pulled over again. And of course there are people blowing by me, leaving me in complete dust…or even tailgating me!

I gave Skip the cold shoulder for most of the ride there. He even asked if I would be talking to him later in the day, or for just the ride…and I told him I hadn’t made up my mind yet! LOL!

We finally made it to the POINK! It was around 11:30ish.
We parked and made our way to buy tickets. Of course the line was super long. I am one who likes to prepurchase things, but Skip never wants to stop off and get them, so we wait….

I then finally pulled out the camera and took some shots!















We finally had our tickets bought and made our way to the next line to get in. It was long, but moved faster. BUT when we got up to the ticket taker she said we had to go over to the far left for stroller entry, so we did. Well, Claire and I did. Skip got in another line for some reason. LOL! I told him to get over with me and he did. Then we stood there while this ticket taker ignored us. There was no one in our line, but this is where we were told to go. She just kept taking the tickets of the ones in the line to our right, which was a non stroller line. After about 1 minute I just came out and asked her if this was where I go and she said yeah, hold on. I guess she is anti stroller entry! LOL! But she did take them finally. I don’t know if she thought we needed to wait a bit since there was no line on our side, but we HAD waited once already, and I didn’t have the patience to wait much longer.

OK!!!!! We are in! Off for some fun!

Wow what a start to the day, I think I would have been mad enough just to go back home and start another day.....
We too are new CP, but don't think we're going this year. Been Plat. Pass holders for the last few years. Live between both parks CP & KI.
Hope you had a better day than your morning was.
Where did they put the new Wind Seaker ride?

Windseeker wasn't running yet. I have read on another board hat they are having major techinical problems with it. It is over wher Motion Ocean used to be. And motion ocean, which is still being worked on, is not where Demon Drop used to be.
I haven't been to Kings Island in 12 yeas. I think Aug 1999 was my last trip there. It was fun. But I rode the Beast first thing that morning and it crunched my spine and I was in pain for the whol weekend. I had to make a trip to the chiropracter as soon as I got back and ever since then I am little more scared of the wild rides. LOL!
My day got better, but I was NOT happy with Mr State Trooper!

I've never been to Cedar Point although in my younger, more adventurous days I really wanted to get there. Now I'm afraid the age (the same as your DH) and weight have caught up to me too much to enjoy all those awesome thrill rides. Will love to read of your adventures!

He rode more than I did and he did a few of the smaller coasters. I just wasn't feeling very wild that day!

It's been a couple of years for me. And I swear everytime I go something has been moved. I can't tell you how many times the Ferris Wheel has moved.

Sorry about your ticket. I've wanted to go to Cedar Pt for years, but have never got around to it. It is probably the same distance from Kentucky to drive to The Plank as it is to Disney, so we always wind up in Disney. Maybe as the kids get a bit older we'll bite the bullet and head North instead!

I hope the rest of your day made up for the shaky beginning! I've never been to the "Poink" (love it!) but people always rave about the thrill rides there. I don't think I'd dare go on most of the rides, but it's always fun to take a vacation day close to home.

Oh, hi. You live in Swanton! I live in Sylvania.

I used to think I loved roller coasters, and I do if they're like the Gemini and the Corkscrew, but the Millennium and the other super-high roller coasters scare the heck out of me. I said the same thing to Brent about my new-found fear, "When did I get old?!"

I would choose Disney over Cedar Point too. But in my younger days I might not have.

It does.

It was a nice day trip. But it's not Disney.

How cool. I live North of Swant, so I'm even closer to you! LOL!
Yeah, the Gemini is more my cup of tea. I rode the Iron Dragon this time around and that was even thrilling. Skip even made a comment early on that he could tell he hadn't been "thrilled" in awhile because he stomach was getting all tickled on little stuff.

Sorry about the start to the day. I would have killed my DH if he'd made that comment to the trooper!
I can't remember if I went to King's Island or Cedar Point when I was in high school. We went there as a band trip and performed. I remember enjoying it - whichever one it was!

Yes, I was ready to kill him. He thinks he is so funny...I don't!
