<< Introduction >>
After all the predictions for yet another crazy hurricane season, the folks
on the east and gulf coasts have had a well-deserved easy time of it this
year. Let's hope the season finishes just as quietly as it started, and our
fall getaways to Walt Disney World can continue as planned. What a great
time of year to visit!
This issue covers our exciting participation in Mousefest 2006, Walt Disney
World happenings and events, "what's new?" on the boards with Jason, and we
go "off topic" with Jane. Without further adieu, let's begin!
<< Special Event!

Previews for Nemo's Undersea Adventure
Walt Disney World Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members are
invited to be among the first to experience Nemo's Undersea Adventure, at
Epcot's The Seas, on October 13-15, 2006. Guests will travel across a beach
and under the sea, where they'll board clamobiles and join Mr. Ray's class
on a field trip, in this new ride through attraction, from the Disney/Pixar
blockbuster film Finding Nemo. Each DVC member who presents their Vacation
Club ID during this special preview event may bring as many as three guests.
Annual Passholders must show their pass, a photo ID and may also bring up to
three guests. Admission to Epcot is required.
While I'm dissapointed with the name change, I suppose it will be more
important that the attraction be quality. It sounds pretty good to me. -
Good news, at least the pavillion was revamped. Can't wait to see it! –

Across the Boards with Figment! >>
Welcome Back to Across the
Boards. So what’s new with you? -- a common question among friends and one
easily answered. Asking a discussion board this same question might seem a
bit more daunting. Don’t worry though; in this edition of Across the Boards
we look at exactly how to just do that.
If you are looking for recent posts made on the discussion board, your hunt
is just a single mouse click away. On the blue menu bar at the top of the
main forums page, there is the option “New Posts” in the middle of the bar.
Clicking on this option will take you t a listing of all the most recent
posts, by threads. The threads are listed in chronological order from top to
bottom. In case the content of the thread is not clear from the title, the
far left column of this list states which forum the thread resides in; which
should help add a little more clarity.
Looking for something more specific? No problem, you can do that too. Let’s
narrow our hunt down to a specific forum. Choose a forum that you are
interested in finding recent posts in. Then choose the “Search this Forum”
button on the far right hand of the tool bar, from the drop down menu select
“Advanced Search”. On the Search page change the “any date” input (in the
Find Posts From field) to “Your Last Visit”. Also input a general key word
on the topic you are interested in seeing new posts on. For example,
“tickets”, “Dinging Plan”, “Crowds” ect. Once you have completed this click
the Search Button. Keep in mind that there may not be any new posts on this
topic in that forum since your last visit, but if there are this method
should find them.
Until next time, happy browsing around the boards and see ya real soon!
Off Topic with ChipDale >>
As summer winds down,
we’re all trying to squeeze in that last picnic, ballgame, vacation or
family outing before the school year starts. So sit back, enjoy that last
glass of lemonade and catch up on the Water Cooler happenings for August.
Do you remember the 80’s? Big hair, crunchy bangs, spraying AquaNet & Rave
until the can was dry? New member jenweaver reminded many INTERCOTees of
their “do’s” 20 years ago. Tynkerbelle referred to her hair as “mall hair”,
Googlie Bear sported a “croissant”, tinkerbelle75 had “cobra” bangs and
WDWacky even admitted to a mullet! So whether you shellacked your hair or
not, I am guessing that the thread brought back a lot of memories!
Jamie’s Friday parties for August included Let’s Go Nuts for Chips and Dales
Party, the Ain’t it Kool to have Kool-Aid End of Summer Party, the Pretty
Pathetic Poetry Party, and the Pet Pluto the Precious Little Pet Party. It
wouldn’t be Friday without Jamie’s party to kick off the weekend. Come join
us this week!
August means back to school and the “Back to School Blues” means different
things for different people. For teachers, like mickeys_princess_mom,
BronxTigger TooGoofy, BelleKP, TikiGoddess, and JennyAnne it means wearing
shoes and stocking again, the end of the slower paced, lazy summer days, and
of course limited INTERCOT time! For parents like princessgirls it’s
bittersweet seeing their youngest leaving the nest. For students, like pink
and chrisb26 it’s exciting looking forward to seeing friends again and the
end of summer boredom. I hope all of our INTERCOTees, whether teacher,
parent or student have a successful school year!
Special congratulations to Weswerx on becoming an uncle again, to drummerboy
on his 30th wedding anniversary and to Septbride2002 on the birth of
daughter Chloe Grace on June 30th!
For those of you who may be looking for the weekly Diet Club, the club name
has been changed to the “Healthy Living Club”. Tune in every Monday to post
your progress, get tips on diet and exercise, and lend support to your
fellow INTERCOTees in their quests for a more healthy lifestyle.
