* Any special plans, events, etc that you have planned

Your pre trip report should be posted here

Starting today (September 28, 2006) all pre trip reports will be posted here and if necessary moved to this subboard.

You can have 2 options upon returning from your trip

1. You can post your adventures on the pre trip report and we (the moderators) will move it to the main trip report board


2. You can start a new trip report and link your pre trip in your first post

Please read the Disboards.com Guidelines by clicking here http://www.wdwinfo.com/guidelines.htm

especially the following ones:


Profanity has no place on these boards. The boards are equipped with censoring software and will not permit messages containing inappropriate language to be posted. Profanity includes attempts to bypass the built in filter that these boards contain to avoid such words. Anyone found trying to bypass the filter will have their posting privileges revoked. Further, profanity includes suggestive or inappropriate photos. This is a family site, and other sites exist that contain more lenient guidelines regarding such matters.

** This includes in trying to get around the word filter - by trying to type the word with *** or any other symbols **


These boards are moderated in an effort to keep the discussions appropriate to the topic at hand. Those who feel they can not abide by these rules are welcome to read the posts on the board, and respond via email to the person who posted the message. Messages that are argumentative or sarcastic in nature will be deleted without discussion.

** This includes calling someone stupid, idoits, trash, or making fun of their trip report writing style **


These boards are not for exchanging personal messages with friends. For that, we suggest you use email or our Private Message system. If you have a personal comment for that person, please direct it to them via email or PM. If the use of the boards for personal messages continues, those messages will be deleted. Remember, if the message is not intended for EVERYONE, it does not belong on the boards!

** This includes secret / private code words that are just for a select few Disboard members. If not every member of the Dis boards doesn't and / or won't understand the word, inside joke, message etc., then it is not clearly intended for everyone and does not belong on the board (s) **


You are free to post a link to your web site on our discussion boards, provided that a) you are not offering a commercial service or for profit venture, b) you do not repeatedly and excessively post the same link over and over again on the forums within our site, and c) that you place a link back to the DIS on your site in an area easily found. From time to time you might wish to post links to other sites that contain information not found here on the DIS. While we encourage this, we ask that you please make sure the information is not already contained on our site (remember, the boards make up only 10% of our site).

** This includes all personal blogs etc **


For each forum on the DIS, a moderator(s) has been chosen to oversee a particular board. Moderators have the authority to delete or edit posts as needed, based on these guidelines. Moderators act with the full authority of the webmaster, and their decisions on all matters are final.

** this also includes mod bashing, poking fun at the moderators (here on this board or any other board on the Dis), questioning moderators actions, etc;, this also would be questioning a moderator (s) decision about one board on any other Dis board .**

All the moderators do this as a volunteers due to our love of Disney and we are all striving toward the goal of making this the best website about Disney.

Don't be afraid to use GoLynx, the public buses serving Orlando. Using the No. 50 gets you to Seaworld and I-Drive from the Ticket and Transportation Center and Downtown Disney. The No. 111 is a direct bus to the Florida Mall. It's cheap, reliable and punctual, and way cheaper than shuttles or taxis.

How do you add the date that you have made your most recent update on to your TR or PTR Title?

Just click on edit on the first post in your PTR. After that, click "Go Advanced" at the bottom and you'll come to another page and you'll see your PTR title in a separate text box and you just write it there (:

I'm sorry if this sounds stupid. But how do I add a link to my Pre-Trip report in my Signature?

Hi, I've been searching for an answer to this question and cannot seem to find it. I started a trip report for my last vacation but did not finish it. It is now closed (I'm guessing because I didn't update for so long). Is there any way for me to reopen it so I can finish? Thank you!

I'm trying to edit my PTR and I keep trying to add a link to my updates, but I can't seem to get the link to work. I followed the instructions at the top of the page and it seems that a link box pops up and it won't let me edit the name of the link.

I was hoping someone could move my PTR to TR. :) thank you!

Would a pre-DVC trip report go on this board? I know the DVC trip reports have a separate board and I'm not sure if the PTRs should be here or there for that 'subgenre'
