For the past 7 years, Disney fans from around the world who frequent the Usenet newsgroup Rec.Arts.Disney.Parks (RADP) have had periodic, informal get-togethers at Walt Disney World and also in their own locales to get to know one another "in real life." This has included an ever-growing annual holiday gathering in Orlando. Many other Disney fans who have connected through other Disney-related websites and message boards have also gathered at Walt Disney World, and other locations, to share their love of the Most Magical Place on Earth.

But imagine if you can a gathering that encompasses ALL these groups... a gathering that unites the enormous family of Disney enthusiasts from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all over the country, from all over the globe! Imagine all of these people convening at Walt Disney World for a short Disney cruise, followed by several days of fun and merriment, special meals, events, and an all-round spirit of Mickey Mania!

Now you've imagined MouseFest 2003!

And guess what?

That's right -- Everyone is invited!
In general, there are no limits on who can join our events, and no age requirements! (Of course, certain events do require tickets or deposits, may have capacity restrictions, or may not be of interest to young children.)

It may sound like an ambitious project, but we believe it's a worthwhile one! Just who all, you might be wondering, is "WE"?

All Ears Net Founder Deb Wills, PassPorter authors Jennifer Watson and Dave Marx, What Would Walt Do? Founders Allison and Tom Keaney, Rebekah and Chris Mahnken from and many others, have decided to attempt to pull all these diverse groups together to co-celebrate the holiday season and our love of things Disney at our very favorite Laughing Place!


11/30-12/4/03 -- Cruise aboard the Disney Wonder

12/4-12/8/03 -- Gather at a variety of Walt Disney World locations!

12/6/03 -- The MEGA-MOUSE MEET! The true spirit of MouseFest 2003 will reign, as WDW guidebook authors, Disney website founders, and members of several Disney Internet fan communities come together at one Big Meet and Greet!

The entire event list of Mousefest 2003 spans more than a week: from November 30 through December 8, 2003. But there's no obligation to spend the whole week MouseFesting. Come for just the cruise portion. Or just join in for a dinner or a get-together here and there. Whatever suits your schedule!


SCHEDULE OF EVENTS -- Complimentary pocket guides with listings of all the meets will be available while supplies last at many of the Mousefest 2003 meets. These handy guides are once again being made available through the courtesy of our friends at PassPorter. They also have a downloadable PDF file with all meet listings available for free on their web site. See Thank you Jennifer and Dave!

Starting with the 4-night cruise on the Disney Wonder, MouseFest promises to present a host of diverse activities -- you're sure to find something to appeal to you! Take a look at the following pages to get an idea of what we have in store:
