Great news, Mike, glad you have you here as a sponsor. Having used your services several times, as well as meeting you at Mousefest, I can attest to your valuable service.

PS: I guess this means no more TGM threads moved over to the Community Board, LOL.

Welcome Tgm!!!

I'm happy to welcome TGM to the disboards. I have used hem for 3 or 4 trips already and can't imagine a trip to Disney without studying the site again. I'm beginning to think he should offer lifetime memberships.

Thanks, Mike, for becoming a sponsor. Last week I decided to give TGM a try for my Sept trip. The information is extensiive but I have a lot of time to pour over it.

Welcome, Mike.

Another cult memb..(ahem) fan of TGM's here!!

Let's just say that I used his service, and was very happy!! Although, this new sponsorship does scare me!! I mean, if everyone joins, it won't work anymore!!!

Warning to those new to TGM... you know you're already addicted to DIS... now, you'll be addited to TGM..... Seriously, I let my membership run out after my last trip because my kids have this annoying habit of wanting some of my time, and TGM was getting all of it!!!

You've been warned!!!

Hey Mike... With this crowd joining up, you'll get that dream car in no time!!

Here's Mike soon...

Good luck here

Well... TGM is not a RIDEMAX type site. Go to your express planner and your vacation club. After viewing the overview, go to my menu at http://www.tourguidemike.com/stephenscoolstuff/menu.asp

You can also PM me, post in the itinerary boards, or pm one of the other VC managers over there. We'll be glad to help.

I am planning a trip in June and was thinking about TGM as I had seen it mentioned on the boards before. I was going to do a search to find his website and then I saw his banner at the top of the board. It was like a sign that I should join, so I think I will.

I've been away from this area of the DIS boards for a few days and today noticed TGM is now a sponsor! I'm very pleased and encourage any of you who are not familiar with Mike's website to check it out.

I subscribed to TGM 3 years ago when I was planning our first trip to WDW in the summer of '04. Along with the DIS, I discovered many tips that helped facilitate the best possible experience. In fact, I just recently renewed my subscription since I'm planning another trip in '07.

I congratulate the DIS for securing Mike as a sponsor, TGM is a wonderful compliment to these boards, especially for those of us who obsessively plan and need all the info we can get our hands on.

I've been constantly clicking between TourGuideMike and the DIS for the past week, getting ready to leave tomorrow. I can't believe I didn't notice this sooner. Thanks Mike, for the sponsorship and for all the help from your site!

Lucky to say 'too many trips to count'. ,

Welcome, Mike!

I've been reading all these great posts about your service and decided to take the plunge today. WOW! I'm so glad that I did! I've already learned so much from your site, and there's a long way to go.

Many thanks!

We used TGM in December for our trip, and I just signed up again for our Christmas trip! Great advice and will REALLY need it to fight the crowds this year. Glad you are a sponsor now. Welcome!
