The Main Street Mouse Has A MAGICAL Announcement!

TMSM BIllboard (2)

Attention Main Streeters! We have an announcement to make! Have I peeked your interest yet? I sure hope so!!

TMSM has been a labor of love for me and my cohorts for the past 4 years. For those of you who have been around for awhile, you know the ups and downs we have had, the good times, the struggles, but we have pushed through thanks to our devoted fans, or as I call you all, our Disney Family. The support you all have given TMSM has been nothing short of MAGICAL, and it’s because of all of you that our Disney dreams have become a reality. TMSM has grown by leaps and bounds, and the sky is the limit as to what we can do! So, where do we go from here? What’s next? Well……

After much consideration, preparation, soul searching and prayers, I’m very pleased to announce that The Main Street Mouse is moving to Florida! Yes, that’s right, our new home base will be near Walt Disney World! I feel that it’s essential for the growth of TMSM for me to be down where the Magic happens, so I can be there first hand to give you all the latest and greatest, with my own personal opinion involved (like usual) as well. If you read my personal blogs, or my “ramblings” as I call them, then you know I speak from the heart and love to share my thoughts and experiences with you all. The response I’ve gotten from you has been amazing, so much so that you make me cry a LOT when you comment and tell me that these stories mean a lot to you. I get choked up because our readers are so important to me, and I’m extremely grateful for every one of you. I’m humbled an honored that you choose to follow what we do every day. I’m scared about the move, yet excited at all of the possibilities that can come from it. So, what does this mean for you, our beloved Main Streeters?

Once my family and I are down in FL, we plan to FINALLY give the fans what they have been wanting for so long, MEET UPS! I can’t WAIT to meet some of you in person, it’s been a long time coming! So be sure to watch for TMSM Get Together announcements coming soon. Second, I plan to really get into the mix at WDW and give you all the most updated information that I can find. I know that once I’m down there, it will be easy to get inspired and I’ll be able to take current pictures, give you the latest scoop on attractions, food, resorts, etc. We have so much in the works for you all, and I’m so excited to be able to give our members more! Another thing about the move….. I plan to take you all with me! How you ask? By starting a “Moving to Main Street” blog series on the relocation and all it entails. I’m nervous, a bit scared, but hopeful that things will go smooth. If I keep you all in the loop, and write down what’s going on, then I think it will be easier for me to be brave enough to do this, and do it well. Your support has given me the extra push I’ve needed on numerous occasions, and I’m definitely going to need you now! This is going to be exciting!

In conclusion, the next month will be a BUSY one for my household. We have a whole house to pack up, things to get in order, and still keep TMSM up and running in the mean time. I’m blessed and lucky that I have a wonderful Admin Staff behind me who will be helping with the site and FB pages while I’m packing and preparing my family for our cross country adventure. My family and I (Scott -TMSM Avenger, and Monsters Inc – Andrew & Aidan) thank you for the support you’ve given TMSM over the past four years. It’s because of YOU that we are able to make the transition down to Florida. I promise to not disappoint, and bring you the very best that I can, it is going to be so much easier to do that being down in Florida. I can’t wait to share all of the fun things with you that we have coming! Thank you all so much…. Hang in there, it’s going to be a wild ride, but so worth it! I finally get to say it….. WE’RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD! Love, hugs, and blessings to all of you! ~Michele

    We moved to Florida to be closer to Disney as well. The best decision we ever made!!! Good Luck!

    Congratulations! I follow this blog and I’m a member of Fan Nation. My husband and I are seriously considering moving to Florida after our youngest graduates next year. I’m greatly looking forward to reading about your experience doing so. I think it will give us some idea of what to expect. While our DD’s will be 22 & 18 next year we still have to consider my husband finding employment and possibly myself (I’m currently a stay at home mom), getting new doctors, finding a new vet for our dog, finding a new place to live, etc.

    I wish you every success on this new journey!!!

    I am so happy for you!! I work with the US military…so know how stressful it is to move. You are strong, though, and you can do this. Your enthusiasm will help you manage it all. Looking forward to hearing all about it (and feeling just a bit jealous!) 🙂

    Michelle, I think that is awesome!! I wish I was able to move to the Orlando area with my daughter, so that we could go to WDW any time we want, but at this time, it is not an option. So, I look forward to reading all about your move and all that you will have to offer once you are settled there. Congrats and good luck!
