Please join me in welcoming TourGuideMiKE as our newest DIS Corporate Sponsor

Hi everyone:

I'm pleased to announce that TourGuideMiKE.com is the new corporate sponsor of our theme parks board. Many of our visitors have already utilized the automated vacation planning services that TGM offers - and have given it rave reviews. It was those reviews, coupled with Mike Hewell's (the MiKE in TourGuideMiKE) encyclopedia-like knowledge of Disney that made this an obvious fit for our site. But beyond Mike's knowledge of Disney, I was most impressed by his passion. When I met with Mike a few weeks ago, I realized I recognized him. In a previous life, Mike was a VIP tour guide with Magic Kingdom Guest Services, and he used to conduct the Keys the Kingdom Tour. I took the tour with Mike in December, 1996 and was moved by the amount of emotion he infused into his tour. So moved, that 10 years later, I still remember it. I may not remember every word he said on that tour, but his passion was imprinted in my memory. I've met a lot of Disney fans and a lot of people with a passion for Disney, and I can honestly say there are not that many I remember this well.

So, please join me in welcoming TourGuideMiKE.com to the DIS as an official corporate sponsor - and please spread the word!

Welcome TourGuide Mike! We used his service for our August trip last year and will be signing up again for this year's vacation. A great help when travelling with 3 little ones under 5!

Congrats on the new sponsor!!

So, is it bad that while I wasn't all that impressed w/ TGM, I do love the color scheme, so I'm going to make it my default?
