Authored by: Jennifer Marx on 03/21/2014

Since PassPorter's first edition way back in 1999, we've been publishing tips, photos, and reviews from readers. In 2000, we added our popular message boards as a way for people to share their experiences online. Over the years we've added more and more ways for YOU to be seen and heard -- articles in our newsletter, magical memories in our books, photos in our photo archive and the glossy photo section at the back of the book. More recently with the advent of smartphones and tablets (and wifi), I've added timely reviews from readers who are in the parks to that list, too! Community is at the heart of what makes PassPorter so wonderful! Here is a comprehensive list of the ways you can co... Keep reading ...

It was only recently that I finally got to see the absolutely amazing Frozen at the cinema. In my defense, we don't go to the cinema that often, and in fairness, it did come out over here in the UK a lot later than in the States.

As I sat there, completely enchanted by the wonderful world I found myself immersed in, I couldn't help but think of all the opportunities this film opens up for Disney. More ...

New Blog Entry: Frozen Sisters Anna and Elsa Moving to Magic Kingdom on April 20!
Authored by: Jennifer Marx on 03/14/2014

Photo illustrating Anna-Elsa-Magic-Kingdom
I'm pleased to discover today that the popular sisters from Disney's "Frozen" are moving! Many PassPorter members have reported VERY long lines at the Norway Pavilion, so this is a very welcome change. Anna and Elsa will be at the lovely Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland which has FastPass+, so this should really cut down on wait times. The sisters move in April 20, 2014 and should be available during the day, departing in the early evening to make way for other princesses. If this princess encounter is important to you or your little ones, be sure to get your FastPass+ reservations made quickly, as I predict this will be a hot ticket. Of course, if you don't want to wait in ANY... Keep reading ...

Q: What do our readers like best about PassPorter?

"I love the fold out maps! Also, the itinerary pages. "
-- comment submitted by Karen Litwin (2014-03-26 22:03:07)

"It has complete reviews of every WDW hotel, restaurant and attraction. It's colorful and fun to look at. It considers all of the reviewed items from different points of view, like little kids, big kids, seniors, couples, etc. Overall, I love this book. It describes everything in WDW without becoming too wordy or over-detailed."
-- comment submitted by Tracy Bratlie (2014-03-15 21:03:41)
