take a peek. Our Webmaster, JohnY, has been busy redesigning the entire
site. It looks marvelous thus far. Pardon our dust as we continue to make

Welcome September! The off-season is here and unfortunately rides are
closing for refurbishments rapidly. However there are a few new attractions
opening, and some rumors about those that are even newer.
-Haunted Mansion movie sets in Disney-MGM Studios Opening in early
Many of the movie sets from Disney's new movie, The Haunted Mansion, will be
available to view at Disney-MGM Studios. Guests will have the opportunity to
look at the mansion's ballroom set, pipe organ, grand staircase, fireplace,
"I heard about this and can't wait to see it!" --doombuggy
"Between Mission: Space, Mickey's Philharmagic, the Dreams fireworks show
and now this, I am getting really psyched to go in October!" --Aurora
"Sounds like it will be great." --Joe, Sue and Joey
-Mickey's Philharmagic Opening soon-
Annual passholder dates for previews of Mickey's Philharmagic have been
unofficially announced. They will take place on Saturday, September 20th and
Sunday, September 21st. The grand opening has been unofficially announced as
September 30th. Until then, random guest previews have already begun, so if
you are one of the lucky few to be in the right place at the right time, be
sure to stop by INTERCOT and write a review.
"I like the sound of the grand opening date!" --Munch "Now I wish I had an
-More Stitch rumors-
More rumors have surfaced pertaining to the closing of Alien Encounter for a
makeover to add Stitch from Lilo and Stitch. Currently the rumor states that
the attraction will close on October 15th for a "short" rehab. All that has
been said, however, is that the theme will change and not the actual show.
"While I welcome the inclusion of Stitch into Tomorrowland, I am upset that
Alien Encounter will be departing." -SmartOne
"It sounds good to me. I'll have another ride I can go to." --dutchess18
"Does anybody have any idea how much of a mess Tomorrowland is going to be
in January with Alien Encounter AND Space Mountain closed?" --Admiral Ackbar

changed throughout the site. We're working hard to do this as we go along.

Dude.... Where's my post?
What happened to that wonderful post about the latest Alien Encounter rumor
that you submitted this morning? Well, if JPL is doing his job and taking
care of the INTERCOT animals and dpamac has restocked the miniature monkeys'
mini-banana supply, it's unlikely that the boards ate your post. Maybe you
forgot where you posted it--it's possible. So...how do you find it? Near the
top of the boards under "Intercot Boards" is a "Search" link. This will take
you to the board search engine.
In the search box type in the title or what is was about. You can specify to
search only in subject line or the entire message. Please note that this
type of search will only search in individual boards, so if you don't find
it in one board, you'll have to conduct another search in each board you
want to search in.
In the event that a moderator had to move your thread, you would have been
notified via your email that we have on file (the address used to sign up to
INTERCOT) to where your thread had been moved. If your post or thread had to
be deleted, you would have been notified either by email or private message
by a moderator as to why the action was taken.
If you still can't find the post or thread, feel free to contact any
moderator in the forum you think you posted it in. If the moderator you
contact doesn't know, he/she will be able to find out for you.

I can't believe that another month has passed us by!! I don't know about you
guys, but I've been super busy!! I might be crazy, but I'm looking forward
to fall and winter in hopes that things might slow down a bit.
Here's what has been happening around INTERCOT during all the madness..
In August we welcomed Frankie (pjbs35a) back to the moderating staff after
some time off because his life got too busy (you too, Frankie??) Welcome
back to him!! We all had the opportunity to get a glimpse of the Red Planet
this month. It's the closest that Mars and Earth have been in about 60,000
years, and won't be happening again until 2287. I know that I won't still be
around then, so I'm glad that I got the chance now. A couple of nasty
computer viruses hit this month.. I hope that those of you that were hit,
had minimal trouble recovering. The Northeast was hit with a pretty severe
blackout that plunged many states and parts of Canada into darkness. A few
days of that, and when power is restored, you realize how much we rely on it
for our day to day living. The Northwest has been plagued with little to no
rain this summer fueling fires in Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.
Hardest hit was the BC town of Kelowna, where our own Moderator, Patricia
lives. After being evacuated from her home, she was able to return, and we
are glad that it suffered no damage. Some of her friends however, were not
so lucky, and we keep them in our thoughts. WDWacky started a thread in the
Water Cooler if you'd like to help with the rebuilding effort in Kelowna.
Pepsi Vanilla was unveiled this month, but has not received as much press as
when Coke released their Vanilla creation. goin2Disney must be starting to
plan early for Halloween when they asked the question "What are you going to
be for Halloween?" I think that it reminded a lot of people that time is
short, and we should start planning. I know it did for me!!
We had some birthdays this month, but don't we always?? ;) Happy wishes went
out to: ShelbyAD, disneydeb, ElenitaB, DisneyFreak2002, Brendansmom, Wishing
Star, Disney-4-Me, angel8783, Dopeysfriend, Beach Club Babe, Jennib,
ChesireLisa, Pongo, Hammer, twistedmickey, bywheel, Iago, mono, Lizzy,
goudaman40, Piglet822, Tynkerbelle, Marker, DisneyDog, Cinderella7299,
Fantasmic, cjdive, FROGO823, TiggerMania, mickeyd, Lindsey, Buzz Fanatic,
Disney Addiction, Roland, and TiggerGuy. Hope you all celebrated in style!!
We have some posting milestones to celebrate this month as well, and our
kudos go to: ChipDale -- 27K, PolyGirl40 -- 20K, Dizneyana -- 18K, TiggerRPh
-- 16K, WDWacky -- 14K, Melanears -- 8K, pjbs35a -- 7K, Disney-4-Me -- 4K,
C&H -- 2K, and GoofysCowgirl -- 1K. Keep up the good work!!
That about does it for me.. Let's hope that next month is a little less
hectic for all of us!! Until then, I now return you to the real topic.
