INTERCOT – Walt Disney World: Inside and Out Celebrates Fifth Anniversary


Six-Week-Long "5 Years of Magic" Celebration, Special Events, Merchandise Spotlight Anniversary


Urbana, Maryland  — October 12, 2002— Urbana, Maryland based Levelbest Communications (http://www.levelbest.com) today announced the 5th Anniversary of its flagship website INTERCOT - Walt Disney World: Inside & Out (http://www.intercot.com). 


Drawing upon his love for Disney World and a desire to experiment with web design, founder John Yaglenski opened the site on October 12, 1997.  Five years later, the website has grown exponentially, covering all aspects of the Walt Disney World Resort from the Magic Kingdom to water parks and nightlife.  "It's been a magical journey these last five years,” says Yaglenski, INTERCOT Chairman and Chief Imagination Officer.  “Who would have thought a website that began as an experiment in web development five years ago would grow into one of the largest travel guides for Walt Disney World on the Internet.” 


As part of a six week long celebration entitled "5 Years of Magic", INTERCOT has a number of special events planned to help spotlight the anniversary. 

  • INTERCOT 5 Years Of Magic Online Scavenger Hunt

  • Release of a new limited edition pin

  • Release of special INTERCOT apparel

Contest rules, prizes and restrictions will be posted on the Website shortly.


INTERCOT is a highly interactive site that appeals to both the first time vacationer as well as the seasoned veteran.  Drawing upon decades of cumulative trips to the Walt Disney World resort and the surrounding area, INTERCOT boasts thousands of pages of content detailing important information a well-informed traveler needs to know in order to fully enjoy a trip to the Central Florida resort.  INTERCOT also offers Disney-themed web cards, an interactive vacation planner, and a monthly newsletter.


“Relationships are the key in this business,” says Gary O’Brien, President of INTERCOT.  “When people feel safe and comfortable, they are more likely to return.”  INTERCOT features one of the Internet’s most popular and active Disney discussion boards.  “What makes me especially proud,” adds Yaglenski, “is the great community of people that have made INTERCOT part of their daily lives.  Sometimes, it's amazing to step back and look at the thousands of guests who have met new people & made lifelong friends over their love of Disney.  For many it's more than just a destination on the World Wide Web; it's a second home."
