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 The software our forums run on is just too out-of-date and it poses a significant security risk.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

I really enjoyed hearing about some of the signature dining experiences. We have not done any of these yet due to budget but are anxious to try California Grill on our next triop. I don't know where to send my celebrations but DH and I will be at WDW Dec 4-13 and will be celebrating our 6th anniversary and it will be our very first Disney Christmas. We will also be going to the MVMCP for the first time on Dec 7th. Yeah!!

DDP Deluxe vs AP-TIW

Thank You for sharing the Signature Dining with DDP Deluxe.

I wonder if using AP-TIW on same itinerary would show savings as well?
I ask because AP-TIW basically 'pays the tip',
whereas you ordered 'most expensive' to maximize 'savings'.

The wife and I used AP-DDE years ago for long "30yr Anniversary" trip,
maximizing Fine Dining, and DDP was Not an option for Campground.
Now there seems to be, not only DDP for Campground, but DDP for AP???
We wish to Celebrate milestone, still preferring Table to Counter
but not so much for Fine Dining now, more fighting off type 2 diabetes.

Le-Cellier going Signature? ... When? Business Casual Dress, Lunch+Dinner?
note: Wife and I had a bit of friendly banter on boats from campground to GFL
dressed Formal for early sitting at V&A. ie: Gilligan's Island millionaire couple.
When I said it was Dress For Dinner Day at MK, I got a few worried looks :-).

Off topic, but intrinsic, how often does the AP resort discount offered on
Ft. Wilderness Campground, not cabins? AAA seems to be only reliable discount.

Thank You very much,
tj

Thank you for trying to fix it! *sadface* However, I still can't get the last few minutes. It still seems to die at the same point as it did before.

I'm having th same problem as others have reported can you try resubmitting it to iTunes with a deferent name like just adding the word repost to the file and episode number to make iTunes think it's a new podcast.

No luck for me either I even tried deleting my subscription on iTunes and resubscribing, and no luck, it just won't download the last few mins. Here's hoping the old " I'm going to say it's not working, then as soon as I post that it's not work, it will be working" trick.

It's really weird -- when I listen to the version I uploaded again, I could hear all of it. Hmmm. I'm making the audio file again. Here's hoping the third time's the charm!
