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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

Love the video podcast, but still disappointed my celebration was not included. I have submitted it two weeks running now. I know you are in WDW but am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,
PJ

That was awesome! TOTALLY loved it, hopefully you can do more of them!!

However, I daresay you left out two of my personal faves: Spaceship Earth and Gran Fiesta Tour.

Not to say that Captain EO isn't AMAZING!! I don't hardly remember ever seeing it when I was small in 1991. I saw it last October and was totally blown away by just how cool it was! So like you, Jennifer, I really enjoyed it more the second time around! I daresay I enjoyed EO far more than Honey I Shrunk the Audience. And when I was down last October, they didn't have the Fuzzballs yet, Belle. So, if I make it back down while EO is still there (hoping beyond hope that they aren't going to EVER bring back Honey I Shrunk The Audience), I'll be able to pick up Fuzzballs and the Captain EO rainbow T-shirt (which I thought was very cool).

I especially was intrigued by the Kim Possible thingie (I may spend a whole afternoon at Epcot just doing THAT at the different pavilions, as well as sneaking in trips to Mitsukoshi & Maelstrom) and Impressions de France (never ever seen it to my memory, I may have slept through it when I was 5, LOL).

I think on my next trip down (hopefully sooner rather than later) I may have to have a full day to do everything I like and would like to try in Epcot (actually, I've never been to Sunshine Seasons for lunch, only been for dinner, so it sounds intriguing, and I may have to do that, especially since apparently that's THE time to do Soarin'. And hopefully I get to catch SSE at a time when there's no line at all again.

And thanks for the tip on the unobstructed Illuminations view, although I've seen it exactly a hundred million times already (plus, I can sneak in one last trip on SSE during Illuminations).

While I'm celebrating something today (my 25th birthday on the 25th of March), I don't much care for making known just how *old* I am. I'm crazy like that.

Fantastic, fantastic stuff this week! Keep up the good work (and I'd love to see more videos!).

BTW, I just listened today to the latest episode of The Original Theme Park Podcast (ding), CoasterRadio.com, which Carrie Hayward was on this week! I say that because i recognized Carrie's voice in the final portion of the video, where both Jennifer AND Sara are on video, still trying to shake off the effects of the Grand Marnier slushie, which I may have to try when I am down there again, hopefully with something a bit more substantial than just crpes.

I LOOOOOOOVED it! Please please please do more whenever you get the chance! It was SO much fun to watch! I finally got to see the faces of Passporter Moms after listening for months! And, with the exception of MS and the UK pavilion, I had never seen the stuff you mentioned so thanks for showing those things

Thanks for the quick reply, Sara. That video on Jennifer's iPhone 4 was just wonderful. It looked too good to have been filmed with a phone. Too bad about the bag it looks so neat and handy like a big passporter pouch. It looks like you both had a great time at the Social Media Moms Convention.

What a great quick tour around Epcot. We're doing lot's of Kim Possible this next trip even though I've never watched the show. It's a great way to delve into each country. Love the video of the Impression de France. I have the music on my mp3 player. It puts me to sleep every time.
