Family Gets the Magic Kingdom to Themselves
Disney made history Wednesday as one lucky family got the Magic Kingdom all to themselves, the first dream fulfilled as Disney Parks launched "The Year of a Million Dreams." The Spanglers, from Randolph, Ohio, toured the park as VIPs for the day, escorted by their personal tour guide, having favorite attractions to themselves and being named grand marshals of the park’s parade. Over the next 15 months, Disney park guests will be awarded more than a million dreams, from a trip to Disney parks around the world to sleeping in Cinderella Castle.

As one of the 1500 cast members to welcome the first family today, I must say that the reaction from the family made it all worthwhile. – DisneyFanaticDargon

I know how I feel walking on Main Street the first day, not enough money in the world to buy the feeling those folks must have had on Main Street. - Scrod

Details & Press Coverage

<< Off Topic with ChipDale  >>

The leaves are starting to fall, the kids are back in school, and we have shorter daylight hours – looks like Fall is here! So, set the rake aside, grab a cup of cider and let’s see what happened in the Water Cooler in September.

Got a recipe to share? Need tips on how to make that special dish? Be sure to check out the monthly topic “Cooking with INTERCOT”. Post your own recipes or try one of your fellow INTERCOTee’s! So if you are looking for a good appetizer for that special party or just a nice meal for your family, don’t forget to check out the new monthly club (stickied at the top of page one).

Jamie’s Friday parties for September included the Annual Labor Day INTERCOT Bar-B-Que, the Grand Grandparents Day Gala, the White Chocolate Elephants on Parade party, and the Leaves Falling from the Trees Fall Festival. Thanks Jamie and Nigel for making our Fridays so much fun!

Shiver me timbers! Did ye know that September 19th be International Talk Like a Pirate Day? Brer Schultzy reminded us all to do our best pirate-speak and of course what INTERCOTee can pass up that challenge! Arggg! I hope all ye scurvy bilge rats had a ball talkin’ like yer s’posed to!

Special congratulations go out to viszla, weswerx, AFDisneyFam, lovewalt, Crow and Bethanymouse on your new jobs! Good luck to all you! More congratulations to Ms.Disney and goofball on your engagements! And best wishes to Jennifer_and_Chris on your pregnancy!

Speaking of pregnancy, did you know that we have a New Moms and Moms-to-Be Club in the Water Cooler? If it’s not on the first couple of pages, just do a quick Search in the forum and it will pop right up. There are plenty of moms willing to answer questions and show support for you expectant moms and you new moms!

Notice that in September we started a new monthly topic for all posting milestones? So if you have a milestone to celebrate (a new status like Cast Member etc., or a major milestone like 1,000’s etc.), post them in the monthly party. September milestones were reached by Melanears – 29,000 posts, pdrlkr – 8,000 posts, dlpmikki – 5,000 posts, Surfer Stitch – 3,000 posts, CanadianWDWFan – 2,500 posts, conorsmom2000 – 2,000 posts, Disneyor Bust – 1,500 posts, Meghan – 1,000 posts, Mousemates – 1,000 posts, disneydrmr – 1,000 posts, pogo – 800 posts, wdwgrl377 – 800 posts, Mmouse6937 – 500 posts, HndrdPrcnt – 500 posts, iheartmickey – 500 posts, Ms.Disney – 500 posts, BronxTigger – 500 posts, Tink&Goofy – Senior Cast Member, DisneyDude1977 – Senior Cast Member, and chrisb26 – 250 posts.
