cooler. Grab yourself a warm cup of coffee or cocoa, get comfortable, and
enjoy this latest issue of the INTERCOT Insider. Casey and Carol will catch

<< Disney World Events with DisneyWizard >>
Winter is upon us and Walt Disney World is preparing for the holidays. For
the month of November, though, not too many events are exciting guests in
Orlando. Check out the small list taking place this month.
Coverage Begins Tomorrow!
The amusement industry’s largest convention will be taking place this
November, and INTERCOT will be there to cover it. Featuring over one million
square feet of new exhibits and attractions, the IAAPA is certainly an
exciting and groundbreaking event. Look for updates and photos at INTERCOT
beginning November 17th. Click below for previous coverage and photos.
Turtle Talk and Opportunity City to arrive at Epcot
An interactive Crush the turtle, of Finding Nemo, is coming to the Living
Seas. Crush will be able to carry on a conversation with guests at this new
unofficial interactive attraction. Also in Epcot, Opportunity City will
debut in Innoventions East. This new exhibit will be based around Disney’s
online Hotshot Business.
Remember to check out the News and Rumors forum for more updates, rumors,
and events taking place. Be sure to post your $.02 so we can include your

Happy November, Everyone.
Recipes Menus & Photos – Oh my! We have added over a hundred new
Menus to Info
Central – making it easier for you to plan your meals OR to make some of
your favorite items right in your very own kitchen. Enjoy! We’d like to ask
for your help in continuing to update our menu and recipe information. If
you dine at Walt Disney World and obtain a new recipe or menu consider
sharing it with your fellow INTERCOTees. You can mail them to me at:
you for your support and a special thanks goes out to Ron and Jeanne for
their participation in our menu crusade.
You will also notice that more photos are slowly being added to our Beyond
Disney section of Info Central and our Disney Resort pages. We could also
use your help here. If you have recent resort photos (particularly room
shots) and you’d like to share them with us you can email them to me via the
address I posted above. Also - if you have visited one of the surrounding
theme parks "beyond Disney" we'd love some of those photos too. Thanks for
making our community the best! We could not do it without all of you.
Speaking of Info Central;
we have added a few new pages.
and the Happiest Celebration
on Earth. Check them out when you get a chance and broaden your INTERCOT
horizons. There is so much more beyond the message boards. I promise you
will not get lost if you go into a different area. The various tabs are very
user friendly and easy to navigate. You can make it back to the forums with
one little click. ;)
The Country Bear Jamboree and the Land Pavilion have been
added to the current rehab list. The bears will be on “vacation” from
November 15 - 20, 2004, while the Disney staff converts their “home” for the
Christmas version of their show. The Land Pavilion will be closed from
January 2 through March 31, 2005 as Disney prepares the pavilion for the
Park Hours and Events are currently posted through January. Visit Info
Central to fine-tune your vacation plans.
Park Hours &
Happy Planning! See you all next month!

Are you a
follower of “The Apprentice” and have to share your comments on who The
Donald fired this week? Or are you a devoted fan of “Survivor” and have to
celebrate or vent about who got voted off? Then INTERCOT has a forum where
you and other fans of these and other shows can share your opinions, it’s
the “Movies, TV, Music and Musicals” forum. Some of the other shows that
have a following are “Desperate Housewives”, “The Amazing Race”, and “Lost”.
The only thing we ask in these threads is to keep all discussion on a
particular show in one thread rather than starting a new thread with each
This forum is also the place to check out Melanears’ weekly thread “Disney
Related TV” where you can check to see when and where Disney movies are on
TV; or maybe you’re wondering whether Samantha Brown will be visiting any of
the Disney resorts on The Travel Channel. If you’re wonder at all if there
is a show anywhere on TV to get your Disney fix, this thread is a must to
check out…it sure beats digging through the TV Guide.
Are you excited about an upcoming concert or movie? This forum is the place
for you. This is also the forum to post information about upcoming DVD/Video
releases. Basically, if it has anything to do with entertainment, whether
it’s Disney related or not, this is the forum to post it. You don’t just
have to be posting information. If you have an entertainment related
question, this forum is the place to get an answer from our knowledgeable

means Halloween and we had many discussions about it in the Water Cooler,
from what are you or your kids going as to how you decorated your house. I
hope that all of our INTERCOTees had a safe and fun holiday!
Speaking of Halloween, if you think that Peeps are only for Easter, think
again! Always a popular topic among INTERCOTees, alittle figment of your
imagination introduced us to the new Halloween Peeps filled with chocolate.
Thanks Max! Yum!
Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox on their World Series championship! We
had numerous topics in the Water Cooler throughout the month and from the
perspective of a non-sports fan it was interesting to see how it all turned
We were lucky in October because it meant that we got to attend five of
Jamie’s Friday parties! They included Oktoberfest, Thank Goodness for
Friends Festival, Fall Festival and the Baseball Ball and the INTERCOT
Halloween Party. Stop on by next Friday and see what Jamie has cooked up for
Need a laugh? We can thank RAIDER for posting Church Bulletin Typing Errors.
For example: “Don't let worry kill you off - let the Church help.”, “Next
Thursday there will be tryouts for the choir. They need all the help they
can get.” “Please place your donation in the envelope along with the
deceased person you want remembered.” “Potluck supper Sunday at 5:00 PM -
prayer and medication to follow.” And my personal favorite: “The Associate
Minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign slogan last Sunday: "I
Upped My Pledge – Up Yours."” Thanks RAIDER for sharing those with us!
Remember last month we were hit with the sad news that harlowandthemermaid’s
little Sam was diagnosed with leukemia. Well, we received some excellent
news this month from Mel: Sam is technically in remission and will still
have to undergo two years of treatments, but we are thrilled with this new
turn of events! We will continue to keep little Sam in our thoughts and
prayers and send loads more pixie dust his way for a full recovery!
