  • Thank You For 5 Wonderful Years of MiceChat

    UPDATED: The Los Angeles Examiner just posted an amazing story about our Anniversary Celebration. Check it out: http://tinyurl.com/y8zweqe

    Our big anniversary weekend has come and gone. It was amazing from beginning to end. Meets, events, contests, meals, socializing, a game show, singing like the birdies, making friends, and having a wonderful time with hundreds of fellow Disney fans.



    The real mice behind the magic!

    Each of you reading this holds a very special role in the success of MiceChat and a very dear place in our hearts. The casual readers provide us with the bulk of our traffic. The registered members provide the 35,000 points of view which make the site so interesting. The Moderators maintain the civil balance which helps make MiceChat welcoming and unique. The bloggers and writers for MiceAge and MiceChat provide the voice and identity of the site. Our advertisers and MiceChat Gold members provide the financial support to keep us online. It is a complex system, but somehow it all comes together in a way that can only be described as . . . MAGIC!

    Today, MiceChat boasts nearly 35,000 registered members. We have hundreds of thousands of unique monthly visitors and serve millions and millions of pages each and every month. It is mind boggling that we have come so far in just 5 short years.

    For all those who have followed us for any length of time these past 5 years, it is YOU who have helped make us what we are today. You are the passionate individuals who so willingly express your opinions, news, photos, dreams, ideas, and aspirations with our millions of annual visitors. Along the way, we have been witness to numerous proposals, marriages, babies, friendships, special events, and a countless number of meets in the parks.

    These past 5 years have been nothing short of amazing. I can't imagine spending my life with a better group of people. Each and every time I log on to MiceChat, I feel like I've returned home. I can only hope that you feel the same.

    My heartfelt thanks to Al Lutz, Monorail man, Indiana Jenn, Momma Mouseketeer, our wonderful staff, moderators, columnists, bloggers, readers, members, sponsors, supporters, media partners, and to Fishbulb (who has allowed me to put MiceChat above our personal life on so many occasions).

    Happy Anniversary EVERYONE! Thank you for an amazing ride these past 5 years. I promise that the best is yet to come!

    With Warmest Thanks and Gratitude,

    Dusty and the MiceChat Crew
    PS - If you loved the MiceChat 5 year anniversary weekend - Please help me thank the Howard Johnson Anaheim Resort and Disney's Character Warehouse (who provided most of our prizes) - without whom we could not have produced this epic 3 day event. THANK YOU for your support!

            Glad to hear about everyone's wonderful time over the weekend. Looking forward to hearing more reports and seeing LOTS more pictures.

            I've only been on here a few short months and it already has that comfy feeling of home. That's why I became a gold member, to be able to support the site. I think it has wonderful info on it for anything Disney. To me it's very resourceful.

            Thanks Dusty & crew for all your hard work that makes this site what it is.

                        Dusty: I posted a brief thanks to you all elsewhere, but it was so great, worth doing it twice.

                        I can't imagine the amount of work and time you all put in to this site and arranging something like that. We're so lucky to have everyone connected with this.

                            We have lots of help. This year, we were VERY lucky to have Indiana Jenn plan the HoJo party for us and work with our sponsors Howard Johnson Anaheim Resort and Disney's Character Warehouse for prizes, party rooms, etc. Monorail Man produced the really fun game show for the Hearthstone Lounge meet. Fishbulb did all of the graphic design, print work, and eye spy. Momma Mouseketeer planned the Tiki Room event and was a fabulous hostess at our HoJo party. Our special events crew helped plan all of the meets. It was an amazing group of people who put this event together! And this is just a mini effort compared to our Gumball Rally.

                              Wow, that looked like fun! I wish illness hadn't kept us away. I look forward to reading everyone's reports and seeing all the pictues. The Tiki Room one is amazing.

                              Here's hoping for another 5 wonderful years, then another 5, then.... you get my drift!

                              Congrats to all.
