If You Can Dream It... We Can Do It!

You shared your wish list for this new edition... and we listened carefully! PassPorter 2000 is as good as it is because of you!

Below is a partial list of each reader wish we were able to make come true with PassPorter 2000. Thank you to each and every one of you who sent in feedback and suggestions!


PassPorter in General:

Your Wish Our Change
Change PassPorter's cover so it is "the first book you pick up" off the shelf (contributed by B.R.) We added a bright yellow sunburst to the book spine so it will jump off the shelf at the bookstore and make it easier for our readers and future readers to spot!
Make it easier to turn pages around the spiral binding (contributed by various readers) We hired a binding consultant to help us improve our binding. We succeeded by changing our paper type and drilling style! It is much easier now.
Make PassPorter "a smaller size to carry around" (contributed by G.B.); make PassPorter "smaller but fatter" (contributed by M.L.) We narrowed the width of PassPorter by 1/2". This may not seem like a huge change, but it now fits in waist packs better, and generally feels more compact. PassPorter is a bit thicker, but not too much more.
Make PassPorter "more comfortable to hold onto for long periods of time" (contributed by C.H.) We think our new, reinforced cover and trimmer size will help with this.
Make PassPorter's cover "the same width as the pages" (contributed by S.F.) We made the PassPockets the same size as the text, and then reduced the cover by 1/2" to fit!
Make PassPorter's cover "harder" (contributed by L.S.) PassPorter 2000's new cover sports a reinforced cover which is made of thicker, sturdier material.
Offer PassPorter in a "three-ring binder so I can add and remove pages" (contributed by many, many readers) plus add "a place to carry a pen" (contributed by N.K.) We are creating a deluxe version of PassPorter in a stylish organizer that sports lots of pockets, a pen holder, and a three-ring binder! Watch for an announcement soon!
Add a "Trip Occasion" line to the inside front cover (contributed by N.F.) We added a "Celebration" line to the bookplate on the inside front cover, and we added a special flap that you can fold around your pages and write your vacation celebration and trip dates for identification.


Planning Your Adventure and Getting There (and Back!):

Your Wish Our Change
Add "some calendars in it so when making reservations you have current dates to look at" (contributed by T.W.) We added planning calendars for the years 2000 and 2001.
Add a "timetable that shows how far in advance to make resort reservations, dinner reservations, and show reservations" (contributed by C.O.) We added a timeline/deadline chart for your own important dates.
Add "a listing of Web sites" (contributed by S.K.) We added a list of 70 Disney- and travel-related sites.
Add "readers/vacationers tips" (contributed by Janine Robinson and B.S.) We've included readers' tips in every chapter!

Add "fold-out maps" (contributed by M.R.); "bigger maps of parks" (contributed by L.T.); "bigger maps that fold in and out" (contributed by A.G.) We added four big, detailed fold-out maps of the four major parks!
Add "more insider tips on various WDW attractions" (contributed by P.D.) We added more tips, trivia, and historical background to the attraction descriptions.
Make it easier "to cross reference attractions to map and narrative" (contributed by G.L.) Thanks to our bigger maps, we were able to print attraction names right on the maps, plus map coordinates to help you locate the attractions from the descriptions.
