Jason has been a lifelong fan of the Disney parks since his first visit at age 2. His biennial pilgrimages during his childhood accelerated into semi-annual visits by the year 2000, when he also Joined the Disney Vacation Club. Luckily, Jason’s bride-to-be was also a Disney fan, which allowed his infatuation with the Disney parks to continue, and ultimately culminated in their wedding at Disney's Wedding Pavilion in September 2003. Early in 2007, Jason began his involvement with the planning for what became Celebration 25, the unofficial fan gathering to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Epcot®. Soon thereafter, Jason met Tom Corless at a pin trading meet in New Jersey, and became part of the WDW News Today podcast starting with Episode 17. Jason has been involved with the WDWNT Network ever since, and can't seem to escape no matter how hard he tries.

  • Well done Disney World good call. Now can someone pleas explain to me what is happening with the international internship people from New Zealand especially my daughter Ramarie Toetoe and her friends from New Zealand my daughter is staying at vista way campus and has been seperate from her NZ friends who are in another campus. She last said that she was expected to continue working and that her and her American room mates were going to go to a Disney resort to stay the weekend. She is not sure who she needs to be communicating with. I wanted to fly her home back to NZ but I understood there were some serious consequences so because of this she has decided to hunker down rather than get out. Please help me to help her.

    • I’ve lived there and interned there , I can’t say don’t worry as a parent but if I were to be in a situation like this ,being there working for Disney would be my top places to be hunkered down.

    • This is not the place for that. Contact Disney.
      What do you think a bunch of theme park nerds are going to do for you?

  • Hopefully it is not as strong as the IP storm that has closed and totally destroyed most of Hollywood Studios the past few years
