What's up with Disney and Magazines?

#1

Four years ago I signed the kids up for A Disney magazine and only a few months later I received a notice they were going to stop publishing it and that I should pick from a list of non-Disney mags to replace it. Ok, I did.

So last year I signed my 7 year old up for Disney’s Adventure magazine. Wow, pirates and everything! :pirate:

Today I get the notice, “Sorry you will receive ‘SI Kids’ instead”. :blow:

Bummer.:ohmy:

I would have prefered Disneyland’s daily park maps and schedules, than SI Kid. :confused:

Who do they have in charge of Disney magazine publications? George Costanza?:glare:

“Yeah, I’m a great quitter: it’s one of the few things I do well… I come from a long line of quitters. My father was a quitter, my grandfather was a quitter… I was raised to give up” - George Costanza

The school fundraiser (don’t get me going on THIS topic :ph34r: :glare: ) offered a combination Disney Adventure and SI Kids package. DS (sports nut) loves SI Kids so I thought it would be a fun option. We received the same notice . . . no more Disney Adventures. I was so disappointed!! They just extended the SI Kids an extra year or whatever the subscription time was. Which is fine, but I really wanted to read Disney Adventures. I mean, I really wanted DS to read Disney Adventures :blink: :happy: .

LOL… We were hoping to subscribe to Festivus Times!

OK, I’m better now. The President has announced an economic stimulus package that will send me to Disneyland.

See?? SEE??? As if further proof were necessary.

We truly are the Seinfeld of Disney forums…:laugh:

#8

Are there currently any Disney magazines in publication?

#9

The only magazines I know of are Backstage Pass (for AP holders) and Family Fun (which may be on newsstands, but may also be an exclusive-to-AP-holders thing). Last I knew, there were still a couple of comics being published, but that’s a whole different kettle of fish.

Hold the phone…no more disney adventurer’s??? well pooh…I liked getting that at the resort…you know for my DD:ph34r:

#11

Nope…when we stayed t WL for Thanksgiving, all they had was Family Fun!! It is okay but since my kids are old they do not have many articles that apply to them. I really miss my Disney Magazine. The online Insider is just not the same.

#12

So THAT’S why they’ve not been there the last few trips. :pinch:

I loved the Disney Mag, got it for years and I still miss it. It would give me that Disney fix that I needed.
