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!

Interesting, not sure I believe in it all, I guess you could say I'm a pessimist - I guess I just need more "magic" in my life!!

(either that or its about time he paid for some of the advertising that is all over the board for TGM every day anyway...)

Wow! Thanks for making TGM an official sponsor and getting his info out. I've been a TGM subscriber since 2004 and very happy with all of his info. If you love WDW and like to plan then TGM is a good fit.
