<< Introduction >>
Is it hot enough for you?
Pull up a chair in front of the A/C with your favorite summer
beverage and take a break. Your lawn can wait a few more minutes. We have
lots to tell you about in this issue. Most importantly, we want to introduce you to a special
little boy, Sam, who needs your help. He is fighting T-cell ALL Leukemia and
needs a bone marrow transplant.
Also in this issue Casey fills us in on what's going on in Disney World, Carol keeps us
up-to-date with the site and Ray takes a break from his Disneyland
adventures for some bytes and pieces. One more thing; if you've seen a
strange being scurrying around the INTERCOT hallways late at night, don't
worry it's only JohnY. He's been busy stocking the INTERCOT Store with new
merchandise, as well as lowering the prices on current items. Now let's get
on with the details.
<< Final Day To Help
Sam - June 15 >>
INTERCOT Pixie Dust Chain of support is legendary and has helped comfort
many a member over the years. Now, we have a member who needs more Pixie
Dust than INTERCOT has ever had to muster before. Little Sam Wood (he just
turned 2) is fighting T-cell ALL Leukemia and needs a bone marrow
transplant. His family needs assistance in covering the post-transplant
expenses. Now thru June 15th, we're looking to you, the INTERCOT
Community to help Sam. As a thank you for members that do contribute,
INTERCOT has obtained a limited supply of special wristbands. They’re gold
and bear the phrase “INTERCOT.COM – PIXIE DUST FOR SAM”. Please consider
giving to this worthy cause.

<< Disney World Events with DisneyWizard >>
With June brought about the closures of two long-time attractions, and the
extension of one long-time movie celebration. INTERCOTees had much to say
about each event, although mostly unanimous in voice.
- Ice Station Cool closed -
After what began as a wild rumor it seems that Epcot’s Ice Station Cool will
indeed close for an extended period. Permanently or simply for a rehab is
still in the air but it has been closed recently. INTERCOTees are all abuzz
with this information.
“This is one of those little attractions that I think are great. It's one of
those things that I like to tell people about because most visitor don't
even know it's there.” -Spindrift
“We were planning in inducting our four friends to the ‘Beverly’ club and
take a pic of the event. What a big, big bummer.” -Fluffatu
“Why would they do this in the summer time?” –i’m grumpy
- Tarzan Rocks to close -
After a long period of crazy rumors Tarzan Rocks, the live show in Animal
Kingdom, will be closing in early 2006. Supposedly the closure will allow
time to enclose the building to eliminate noise in the surrounding area and
to add more shelter from the hot sun. Currently the new show to replace it
is only supported by rumors.
“I wasn't crazy about the show, but I know a certain 5 year old who will be
quite disappointed to learn the show will not be there in October.” –Noah’s
“No tears here either. I have seen it three times and never warmed to it.
It's not his fault but when Tarzan is lowered down his vine I feel like I'm
at a Chippendales' revue.” –Beast25
“I'm glad this show is going, it was way to LOUD!” –riding_big_thunder
- Star Wars Weekends extended -
The infamous Star Wars weekends at the Disney-MGM Studios theme park have
been extended by two more weekends. The remaining dates for the weekends are
June 17-19 & June 24-26, completing its run at the end of June after a total
of 6 weekends. The current guests expected to attend include Amy Allen, Matt
Wood, Jake Lloyd, and Warren Fu.
“It's a surprise trip for my kids, so [my son] will be so psyched!” –Maleficent’s
“We've made it the last 2 years and were going to barely miss it this time
around. My son will be thrilled!” –Disneydol
Happy June Everyone!

Oops! You have just accidentally posted your trip report in Dining instead
of the Trip Report board. You realize it but you don’t know how to correct
the error. There are two main ways to take care of this. Which one you
choose to use depends on your ability to edit your posts.
If you’re not too confident in being able to manipulate posts, contact a
moderator of the forum that you accidentally placed your post in. What
they’ll do is move your thread into the proper forum and if you like, delete
the misplaced thread.
You don’t have to contact a moderator though. If you want to handle this
yourself, you can. What you’ll need to do is click the “Edit” tab (the
tablet and pencil). Now you’ll need to highlight the entire text of your
post, then right click the highlighted text and click “Copy”. You can either
delete the post now, or if you want to do it the “safe” way, use your “Back”
button and go to the forum that you want your post to be in. If your post
isn’t a reply to a current topic, click “New Topic”. While in the text
window, right click and then click “paste”. This should place the text of
your original post into the window. If you wanted your post to be a reply to
an existing thread, find the intended thread, click “Reply” and do the same
thing as mentioned above to paste your text into the text window. Once
you’ve posted your post onto the boards, then you can return to your
original post, click “Edit”, click the “Delete Post” box (upper left corner
of the edit window), then click the “Edit Post” tab at the bottom of the
window. This will delete your original post.
Now your mistake is history and your post is where you want it to be. That
wasn’t so hard was it?
