  • MiceChat 4 Year Anniversary - LIVE

    The MiceChat Story:
    4 Years ago, I found a little fairy sprite trapped in a tree. She pleaded for me to set her free, and I did. As she flew off, she showered me in twinkling dust and told me that I should make a wish before the last sparkle faded away. I wished with all my heart for a way to unite all of my friends and create a magic place where we could be together whenever we wanted, wherever we were in the world. And the wish came true.

    Monorail Man, saw that vision too. He created a splendid home on the web for friends old and new. We struggled to create a place without too many rules but with just enough to keep the trolls, orcs, and evil sorcerers away. And we began to recruit the most amazing team of moderators, content writers, bloggers, and staff. A countless number of hours of work have gone into this site by dozens of volunteers. Their hard work is the bedrock upon which this community is built.

    But it is the members themselves who have made MiceChat the largest Disneyland Discussion board and one of the largest and fastest growing forum sites in the world. Today, nearly 28,000 of you call MiceChat Home. You have made close to 3 and a half MILLION posts in the past 4 years. It is astounding that so much can happen in such a short period of time.

    We began as a tiny niche of people crazy about Disney and Theme Parks. But MiceChat has grown far beyond a Theme Park community. Today, nearly half of our posts occur in the Lounges, Entertainment and Sports, and MiceChat gold sections. You have become a community unto yourselves - a virtual microcosm of society in our own little pocket of the Internet.

    And 4 years has been more than enough time for real life to happen on this virtual world. MiceChatters have met, fallen in love, gotten married, had babies. Thousands of you have made your closest personal friends on this site. You have formed support groups, clubs, shared interests, and helped each other in times of crisis. And this year, for the first time, we have joined as a group to morn the passing of some dear friends. We may chat in a virtual world, but we have formed very real bonds which will last a lifetime.

    It is only fitting that we take some time to celebrate our community, our friendship, and our 4 years of MiceChatting!

    Watch this thread for photos, information, news, and thoughts as the 4 year anniversary weekend unfolds beginning this evening. Whether you are able to join us in person or online, you are a vital part of this community. This is your celebration!

    To Al Lutz and his amazing team of writers, Monorail Man and the MiceChat Moderators and Administrators, Rixter, Darkbeer, Master Gracey and the MiceChat bloggers, Fishbulb, Sir Clinksalot and the News and Roundup Crews - THANK YOU for an AMAZING 4 year adventure. And to all of the many thousands of MiceChat members and millions of readers worldwide - Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!!!

    With thanks and appreciation,
    - Dusty and the MiceChat Crew

    First up, the Friday night MiceBash at the Howard Johnson Anaheim Resort!

    This was a special ticketed event. While space at the event is limited, we'll be sharing stories and photos from the event throughout the night here in this thread, and on twitter at Twitter / MiceChat

    As part of the celebration, Sir Clinksalot prepared several video slideshows showcasing 4 years of MiceChatting. Keep reading below.

      Kick off your journey through 4 years of MiceChat as our very own Dustysage sprinkles some pixie dust throughout MiceChat Land.

      (If you'd like to watch these videos in Higher Quality, click the arrow at the bottom of each video and click "HQ")

      ____________________________________________


      Next, the first Major Event in MiceChat's history, our 1-year Anniversary celebrated in January of 2006.
      Here you will find MiceChatters gathered at the Happiest Place on earth.
      See how much some of your friends have changed over the years, and some blasts from the past!!!!

      Think you can ride every attraction in Disneyland in one day???
      Charlie Arnold (Circarama) thinks you can, so he came up with the Gumball Rally.
      This is the original event that inspired 2 more Rally's and another one coming soon.
      Keep your eyes peeled for details soon.

      What's better than a bunch of MiceChatters taking over Disneyland???
      How about taking over an entire World.
      Follow the antics as the MiceChatters descend on Walt Disney World.

      __________________________________________


      MiceChat isn't all about amazing events. It's about people.
      And some of the best times had are just hanging out.
      Whether it's at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, The Movies or wherever. You never know where you might find us.
      Take a look Down To Earth at the MiceChat Universe.

      ____________________________________________


      If Disneyland can have 2 years of 2 million dreams, MiceChat can have 4 years of 4 million Queens!!! Right???
      Take a look back with us as we show you the events and love that is shared each year at Gay Days at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

      ____________________________________________


      How do you top off another year of the greatest Disney site on the web? Why have a party at Disneyland of course. It's our 2nd Anniversary in January of 2007.
      See why the annual MiceChat Anniversary is an event not to be missed.

      ____________________________________________


      Once again, let's take a look at the people of MiceChat. It's people are what make this place worth coming back to.
      M-I-C (See You Real Soon) K-E-Y (because we like you) M-O-U-S-E.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=Sh6IipX9_9Q
      ____________________________________________



      It's back and better than ever. Once again MiceChat descends on Walt Disney World for more fun.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=vgHg5hxCS2Q
      ____________________________________________



      Twice The Teams. Twice The Parks. Twice The Fun. That's right, it's Gumball Rally 2.
      In Gumball Rally 1 we proved you can ride every ride at Disneyland in one day.
      But can you ride every ride in both parks in one day? The world may never know.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=obVQb5VzZZ4
      ____________________________________________



      If one major event wasn't enough, how about a Gumball Rally on Saturday and an Anniversary event on Sunday!!!
      That's right, it's MiceChat's 3rd Anniversary weekend celebrated just last year.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=6y2fL_3tDGc
      ____________________________________________


      Finally, to end our journey through 4 years of MiceChat, we begin with the man who really started it all, Walt Disney.
      Without Walt, none of us would be on MiceChat and we can't help but thank him for that.
      And what better way to shove off towards 5 years of MiceChat than with a toast.

          Thanks for the update Rixter! Can't wait for more! (and for a better Internet connection to watch those vids!)
          Good morning, son
          In twenty years from now
          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
          And I can tell you 'bout today
          And how I picked you up and everything changed
          It was pain
          Sunny days and rain
          I knew you'd feel the same things...

              I want to add another thank you to those of you who sent in pictures last weekend.

              Originally we were hoping to get about 250 pictures, we ended up getting over 700. And while not all of them were used, most were. We tried to capture all of the major micechat events as well as those meets (such as the Northwest meets) that not everybody get's to see. I hope I accomplished that.
