In Loving Memory of Ellen Dominguez

INTERCOT has lost one of it's family members today. It's with great sadness we are reporting the passing of Moderator Ellen Dominguez - ElenitaB on the boards. (To right; Ellen's favorite photo at WDW with her son Ben.)

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Sometimes You Have to Get Ugly to Be Pretty

Nothing like a fresh episode of the INTERCOT Insider Podcast to put some holiday cheer on your face.  Unfortunately, this isn't our holiday episode (that's #45 coming soon) and we were REALLY CRANKY for this one. Like - had some bad egg nog cranky.  Anyway, we discuss twinkle lights, swatch, bathrooms, cupcakes, customer service, the birthplace of aviation and oh - some Disney stuff. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the splendor of the wildest ride on the podcast circuit!
