FREDERICK, MD, August 14, 2010 -- AllEars.Net, recognized as one of the Internet's most accurate and reliable unofficial Disney websites, announced today that it is preparing to launch several initiatives in advance of its 15th anniversary celebration, which begins in January 2011.
According to Deb Wills, president of RYI Enterprises, LLC, which publishes AllEars.Net and its companion weekly electronic newsletter AllEars®, the popular website wants not only to acknowledge its success but also its loyal readers from around the world.
"Since its inception in 1996, AllEars.Net has grown to a site that receives 10 million page views per month," says Wills, "and the newsletter now reaches more than 126,000 subscribers around the world each week. Our readers have been an integral part of our success, and we want to acknowledge that by celebrating with them in a big way."
One way AllEars.Net plans to mark its anniversary year is by holding meet-and-greets at various Disney locations, including Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and on the Disney Wonder's inaugural cruise to Alaska in May 2011, to live up to their motto, "Sharing the Magic Worldwide."
To cap off the year-long schedule of celebratory get-togethers, Wills announced today that she will host a special AllEars® group cruise on the newest Disney Cruise Line ship, the Disney Fantasy, which sets sail in 2012.
"Disney has not released the sailing dates for the Fantasy yet, but that isn't stopping us from planning a great trip sailing with our friends on this new ship," Wills says. "Readers should keep their eyes open for a major announcement about this exciting cruise in the next several months." For more information and updates visit http://allears.net/DCLFantasy
Along with these gatherings, the team at AllEars.Net has been working on many exciting offerings and site enhancements. In the coming months, look for the following:
-- Collectible AllEars® Trading Cards: These two-sided high gloss cards measure 2 3/4" by 3 1/4" and feature different aspects of favorite Disney vacation destinations. Eight cards have already been released and two additional cards will be available this month: one an exclusive card for the Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet taking place this weekend in Seattle, and the other featuring the Monorail, the Highway in the Sky, a Limited Edition of 200. Learn more about these cards here: http://allears.net/btp/tcards/tradingcards.htm
-- A new site search engine that brings back more relevant results quickly. Readers can test the new search engine here: http://allears.net/search.htm
-- A contemporary, fresh look to the landing page, which consolidates information from Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line and more
To tie all of this together, AllEars.Net will be launching a special "15 Years with AllEars" anniversary logo, chosen by the readers.
"We have three possible logos, but we'd like to get our readers' input," explains Wills. "We'll be running a poll to let the readers choose what the anniversary logo should be, starting August 23, and running through September 12."

This is just the beginning of a year chock full of surprises, meet-ups, and more. Watch for additional details on the plans for AllEars.Net's 15th anniversary celebration in the coming months.
"For the past 15 years, the goal of our website and newsletter has been to provide information and tools that help make the sometimes stressful Disney trip-planning experience as easy and pleasurable as possible," says Wills. "We feel honored that so many have welcomed us into their homes and let us provide them with this service for so long. We're looking forward to celebrating the past 15 years, and are eager to continue helping people make happy Disney memories for the next 15 and beyond."
