As many of you are aware, several weeks ago we closed the WDWNT Network Community Forums to allow us to move forward and “keep up with the times”. This community and the world around it has changed greatly since we launched the forums over three years ago, and it was time to move on. In the battle for your precious time, forums were unnecessary with the existence of social media like Twitter & Facebook. In an effort to allow you to comment on the Walt Disney World news & information we post here on WDW News Today without having to then post your feeling in several other places, you can now leave comments on and share our posts through connectivity with a multitude of social media sites (Facebook, Twitter,DISQUS, Google, & Yahoo!). We hope this will make it easier for you to discuss Disney topics with fellow fans and connect with our community. (NOTE: The comment system can be accessed from a small link at the bottom of each post on the main page, but by clicking into each post, you can simply scroll to the bottom to find the comment area)
In addition, we have made several eliminations and additions to our site. The calendar of Walt Disney World events and the “Fantasyland Project Tracker” are history, but we have added links to our most popular news topics to the navigation bar. Right now, Star Tours II & the Fantasyland Expansion are the two hottest topics, so we have links that will send you right to a complete listing of every story we have had on that subject. We hope this will make it easier to track projects step-by-step and to not get lost searching for the topic in the sea of news we post on a regular basis.
So go ahead, try out the new comment system and let us know what you think of these changes below!
