View Full Version : The Biggest Thank You of All

You know, having been there and experienced just how fantastic the 10th anniversary celebration was, it occurred to me that we've thank John, we've thanked Ellen and the other organizers, we've thanked each other, we've thanked Disney ... heck I think we've even thanked people who weren't there.

But I haven't seen anyone thank our absolutely amazing sponsors (http://www.intercot.com/news/advertising/sponsors.asp)!! I don't think anyone who attended realizes just how much they all contributed to help make our experience what it was.

From the folks at Official Ticket Center (http://www.officialticketcenter.com/cgi-bin/store/commerce.cgi?product=tickets&refer=TC21LBC) who provided the popular light-up lanyards.

To the Radisson Resort Orlando (http://Radisson Resort Orlando.guestselectresorts.com/?pid=INTERCOTG), who picked up the tab for lots of the goodies we had.

And All Star Vacation Homes (http://www.intercot.com/resorts/nearby/allstar/default.asp) who arranged and paid for the oh-so-amazing private meet-n-greet with Mickey in the VIP section of Norway.

To Stan Kelley at Stan Kelley Photography (http://www.flmemories.com/) for taking that INCREDIBLE group picture of us and going to all that trouble to tag it, just so we'd know who everyone was.

And of course, last but most certainly not least, the WONDERFUL folks at Magical Journeys (http://www.yourmagicaljourneys.com/) who sponsored the Illuminations Meet and helped make it affordable for all of us to attend.

And I gotta give a personal shout out to my girl Karen at MJT, with whom I was fortunate enough to get to hang out for a bit, and who personally has made so many of my own Disney vacations memorable! I just hope Jennifer has forgiven me ...

So listen ... these are the folks who make it happen around here. Without them, I can flat out assure you, INTERCOT would have to shut its doors. Anytime you need any of the services these folks provide in the Orlando area, think about that.

When you use our sponsors, you're supporting the community that is so important to you. As much as we all like to think INTERCOT runs on pixie dust, it really takes a whole lot of cold, hard cash and these are the folks providing it.

Thanks again to ALL our sponsors ... we all appreciate everything you do for us to help keep our favorite place on the 'Net up and available to us. :thumbsup:

Very well put, Ian. I think we did overlook our sponsors, many of whom were very generous with goodies for us :)

(I'd also like to put a thanks out there to the guys/gals @ Happy Limo, who made our trip back to the airport so extra special... thanks so much for the unexpected upgrade!! :cloud9:)

Hey I did mention the sponsors in my recap! ;) But truly, I completely agree, they deserve a big THANKS for helping put on such a fantastic event!! I hope everyone will pop over to their sites and think about using their services, whatever they may be!

They are a big part of keeping this site running and we appreciate having them. :thumbsup: It was also a real pleasure to get to meet some of them in person, especially Stan and the Magical Journeys ladies. :) (Don't mean to leave anyone out though!) Thanks for attending guys!! Hope we can do it again real soon! :mickey:

I'd also like to mention that the fact that they sponsor INTERCOT is not the sole reason to make use of these folks' services.

Every one of INTERCOT's sponsors is selected because they provide a high quality, consistent service to our membership.

Don't take my word for it ... ask around. You won't find any shortage of folks here who will tell you all about them. Read trip reports where people continually reference how awesome they are ... go check out the group photo that Stan took of us at the Illuminations meet and see what amazing things he can do with a camera.

That's the best thing about our sponsors. It's a win-win for everyone. You end up doing business with some of the most reliable, reputable businesses there are, all the while helping INTERCOT grow and thrive.

What more could you ask for?? :thumbsup:

Don't worry, I forgive you! :) I wasn't mad to begin with. Everyone tells me I look younger than I actually am - so I guess I am used to it!

I had fun, thanks to everyone involved! It was nice to meet some of my mom's clients and everyone else too :D

I want to add my thanks to the wonderful Intercot sponsors as well. Stan and Wendy, it was so good to meet you both especially! Our sponsors and Intercot staff made this trip so memorable for me. Thank you all!

WOW I am one of the people who didn't go and also didn't realize what the intercot sponsors did do for you who did go.

Looks like we have some great sponsors we will have to use and keep using to help pay back all the work they did. :thumbsup::number1::thanks:

Would have been in here earlier but arrived home very late and was faced with major catch up and a death in the family.

Big HIGE Thank YOU to all the Intercot Sponsors, John and all the great moderators for a wonderful weekend!! :thumbsup: It was a fabulous opportunity to put faces to names after conversing for years on this very special message board filled with FANTASTIC people. The surprises were unbelievable and greatly appreciated!

Thank You ALL!!!! :rocks:
