...which most of you know is the publication distributed to annual passholders.

A couple of interesting tidbits...

I received a seperate insert with 4 cards that I can distribute to friends/family who will then receive 10% off the purchase of a Annual Pass, so if anyone would like one, send me a pm :wink: (In the interest of full disclosure, if you use the card, I receive a $25 g/c for the World of Disney store :yes: )
There are two upcoming AP speaker events, both on the topic of special effects and fireworks. The one being held in the MK on June 20 will feature Steven Davison, the creator of "Wishes". He will speak about his creative concept of Wishes, and how his vision has been adapted for Halloween and Holidays. AP guests will also have Q&A time, PLUS the opportunity to view Wishes from a special reserved location.
There will be another "Early Bird AP Sale" at the World of Disney shop in DTD on June 6 at 6:30am (bring your coffee!!)
There was a blurb regarding the "new look" of DTD, including a description of the upcoming restaurant "Paradise 37" a new high-energy waterfront restaurant and bar that features North, Central and South American cuisine, PLUS A BAR WITH FIFTY KINDS OF TEQUILA!! Paradise 37 is scheduled to open in late May.


And finally,the "Sounds Like Summer Concert Series" at EPCOT will be held June 15th through August 9th with three shows nightly (5:15, 6:30 and 7:45) and will include the following (my apologies if this has already been posted elsewhere):

Thanks Becca! It was really decent of you to post all that info!

Now, can you tell me please why I've not received MY Mickey Monitor yet? :lol: :D

I've seen the construction area for the new restaurant. It looks like it's going to be a big place.

PI needs some life desperately. Perhaps this high energy restaurant will inject some energy into the forlorn island that was once a hopping place. :sigh:

We'll have to wait and see!

I have never had it, the worm scares me :eek: Willing to give it a try for the purposes of resarch for the boards though :D

One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, FLOOR!

Issy, I shall check the fine print and post an update on expiration date/use in the UK, etc.

If it can help you, it's yours! We actually have 8 of them in total because Jon also got a set, so we have plenty to share!

Ms. Tink, I have *NO* idea why they've not sent you your MM yet! We received ours yesterday. Perhaps it is being delivered by Mickey himself? :wink:

I hope they rejuvenate DTD a bit as well, it's so sad and forlorn to see it the way it is currently. :sorry:

Mickey Monitor is more a colourful newsletter than a magazine. Postage to UK probably is prohibitive. Wouldn't it be nice if they developed an online version for international AP holders--or any AP holders who prefer that method of distribution? :yes:
