Per Micah, Josh’s family may the difficult decision to shut down the easyWDW site and forum in mid-July.
There’s much willingness to help recreate his community (see the comments), but we need a leader…
Follow yourfirstvisit.net on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest!!
Hoping to reconnect as well. I took a break for a few weeks and just saw the site was down 🙁
Tried to visit easywdw today and it’s gone. Now my heart is broken all over again. Why does losing access to a “Disney World information page”, written by someone I never met, make me weep uncontrollably?
Thank you so much Dave!
Thanks, Dave, for serving as a place for all of us to try to find each other. You and Micah are both much appreciated.
Came home from a WDW visit to find Josh’s Blog & Forum gone. I was so not ready…..& hopeful it can be restored.
I’m glad to find you guys here! I was searching just like the rest of you when I figured out the site was down. I feel such a loss, all of that wise and clever content and the wonderful community.
I’m still here, too. I know how much work a forum is, but I hope one shows up for us all. I can volunteer to help moderate. I can offer a bit of money if needed.
Heard from Micah, updated page to reflect. BTW Micah’s page is here: http://www.mouseperks.com/easywdw.html
I do not. Hopefully he comes here soon and sees this.
Come back from a non Disney vacation and see the forums are down for good. Hoping we get something up and running soon. Has anyone started a new one? I am willing to help if I can.
Not that I know…but I have not heard from Micah, and foolishly don’t have the link on this to his site–do you?
I miss you guys already! And Josh. . .): Leaving for WDW in 9 days. It will not be the same. I am crying again for someone I never even met.
I am stalking easywdw and every day I get the same sad message. I hope we can all find a place to talk…I will miss So many of you! Cathy
Looks like Easywdw is “off air”. So so sad all that valuable content has disappeared forever, hard to believe :((((((
I am getting the same errors. I fear EasyWDW may be over for good. Hopefully we can find a new home somewhere together. I’m saddened if my trip reports are lost forever. I’m also glad I scoured Josh’s F&W posts from last year to cobble together some advice for this year.
Uh oh. I’ve tried to reach the forum the past couple days, keep getting a “currently unavailable” error message. :o( Same with the blog.
Same here. I hope the forums can find a new home!
Is the blog and forum down forever now? I am getting “Page could not be loaded” for both.
Thanks so much for doing this Dave!
