Does anyone else find this a strange marriage? That being TGM ("don't tell anyone what you learned here") and DISboards ("share it with the world")?

Welcome TGM! I also love your site. So did you pick out these colors? Very nice.

Oh, I see them as two different animals - the DIS is like the town square, and TGM is like a private club. Both nice for the community, both have many of the same members, but the set-up is a little different. I, for one, am a fan of both.

Welcome, Tour Guide Mike!

I'm a repeat subscriber....looking forward to my April trip using your info!

For those who don't know about the website, read my thread here: I am now a Believer - Tour Guide Mike

All I can say is that it was worth the $18...even double that!

We hit EVERY ride on my itinerary that the kids wanted to for MK for the day by 2pm. This is with a 4 year old and a 3 year old (who has many issues with rides). We even hit Goofy's Barnstormer 3 times, and Mickey's Philharmagic twice! We were then able to head out of the park a little after 2pm, and relax for a while before having dinner at Epcot (Le Cellier) at 5:30pm. We looked at the ride wait times as were were leaving and many were 30 minutes and higher! We just hit all the right rides at the right times because of my research using TGM as well as tons of reading here, the Passporter, etc.

Congratulations Mike! Repeat subscriber here! I really enjoy Mike's information, but what I enjoy more is his writing style of his website and articles. It's plain to see that he LOVES Walt Disney World, and wants all of us to love it and enjoy it as much as he does.

I love TGM!! Used his advice for our May, 2005 trip and it was awesome!! I extended my subscription before we even left for the trip as I am also planning a trip for Dec., 2007. Well, my daughter in law called me one Sunday this past December and said she wanted to go see all the holiday decs and things and did I want to go with them? I said "Sure....when do you want to go? In 2006?" She said "No, we're leaving Tuesday!" Thank God for TGM!! I was printing out like crazy before we went and we had a blast!! Even going to MVMCP on a Friday evening we knew what to expect and it was wonderful!!
I'm still planning my Dec., 2007 trip....but just added my Dec., 2006 trip too!!
Gotta love TGM & the DIS!!!

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?
