Dec 15, 2011 9:30 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
Today we remember Walt Disney, who passed away 45 years ago at 9:30am, after leaving us with a place and an idea he loved. Lillian Disney was quoted one time as saying, "He practically lived there," in regards to Walt's love for Disneyland. One employee said she would occasionally see Walt standing the window of his Fire Station apartment - crying, because he was moved by the achievement. He overcame so much to bring us Disneyland, so we dedicate this day to honoring Walt by posting about how his dream has affected our lives. Feel free to start your own post in tribute to Walt Disney.

Thanks for this post. Is it too much to say that Walt Disney could be one of the most influential people, ever? His work has touched so many people in so many different ways. Thanks, Walt, for bringing is all so much joy! - mrsdanaalvarez  281.1 #1020 9:43AM
I remember when I was 4, my dad and mom took me and my sister to DL. That was in 1976, a long time ago, my mom was/ is huge Walt Disney fan and I think she was grooming me into a fan. We use to watch The Wonderful World Of Disney on ABC back in the 70s and she made me become a Mousekateer too. Now I'm in my late 30 and a father of two wonderful children who and I'm proud to say are Disneyland fans too. It's funny how all this started with a dream. - stevencato  208.4 #1866 1:46PM
Thanks for the post admin! And thank you Walt for having such an awesome and magical imagination... I like many others will be forever grateful to you for giving us the best gift ever, "the happiest place on earth!" - disneymomma1  325.8 #745 11:18AM
Thank you Walt! And thank you Admin for the post! - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #451 12:55PM
I'm glad Walt Disney shared his imagination to the world. Every time I go to Disneyland I feel so relaxed. Thank you Walt Disney! - EpicMickey  13.4 #8898 2:04PM
Thanks Walt! I've learned a lot from you in my life: think big, don't be afraid to fail, quality counts, pay attention to detail, hire talented people and let them do their job, don't think outside the box - get rid of the box entirely! The list goes on and on. - pharaoh  275.6 #1077 4:43PM
My finest memory of Disney would be future. Remember a man dressed I'm this suit with power pack. He would jet up to the sky like a rocket. The way Mr. Walt Disney brought things to us from all over the world like It's A Small World,amazing to know as you were a kid that there were kids all over the world with different cultures. He's ideas, dreams, hopes lives on forever. God Bless this man for a Wonderful place on earth!!! - soco45  118.7 #3215 5:03PM

Walt redefined impossible as possible with a cool name for those uber creative folks "imagineers" - thank you for the magic✨ - Plumiegirl  9813.4 #7 9:25PM
I was 9 when Walt passed away in 1966, which means that I had already been a confirmed Disney kid for 6 years!  I still remember seeing the headlines and pictures of Mickey crying and being confused by it all.  My parents tried to explain it to me, but I can remember feeling so sad and scared that "Disney" was gone.  My parents were so awesome - they took me on a special trip to Disneyland the next weekend so I could see that everything was still there -  and most importantly, that Mickey was alive and well!   - msdizmaui  697.0 #269 9:33PM
In 1959, Disneyland was 4 years old, and I was 6. My parents took me to Disneyland for the first time. It was unbelievable, magical. I still remember flying around on Peter Pan looking down on London. Amazing. But before the trip ever happened, we would watch Walt on TV. I felt like I knew him. It wasn't a TV show, it was Walt with a fun story to tell. And Disneyland wasn't a theme park, it was his special place to have fun, and everyone was invited. Years later, when my son was young, it was a given that we would go to Walt's magic kingdom to celebrate my son's birthday. And now, even more years later, when he comes home to visit, we try to run up and have a day at what is truly, the happiest place on Earth. Despite all the countless visits I've had, I never grow tired of Disneyland. I'm sure there are millions of people who have similar stories of how much fun their families have had over the years. What a profound gift that Walt left the world. Thank you Walt for bringing your vision to life. - 50sKid  305.0 #859 11:00PM
Thanks for this post Admin! Without Walt we wouldn't have a place to share with our families and loved ones. A place where magic can be seen and felt. And without this place there wouldn't have been MW thanks to you. A place where so many friendships have come from and this magic can be shared with everyone. 😊 - LBChica  2391.0 #59 9:35AM

When I was a child I was enthralled by the idea of an immagineer.  The idea of thinking outside of the accepted norms and looking at ways to improve the wold around me has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and Disney was a large part of that.  Thank you, Walt Disney! - Chris_E  25.6 #6265 10:55AM
Dear Walt, Thank you. :)

Wonderful post! I never forget to give a silent nod and a heartfelt "thank you" when I look up at candle in window of Walt's apartment over the fire station. I do it every time without fail. I have to pay tribute to the man who gave us all the single most wonderful place in the world! Thank you, thank you Uncle Walt! - Timmysmom  234.6 #1523 3:41PM
I have always been the kind of person who loved imagination, and all of the wonderful magical things it can do. To me, Walt Disney was and remains the pioneer of proving the power of what one person can create with little more than a dream. He's a hero to so many, and it's beautiful that even after leaving the world behind, his imagination continues to inspire. - tinkerdoll  178.9 #2246 4:39PM
His dream has influenced so many people and brought joy to lives of millions of people. Truly an amazing person. Thanks for your greatness Walt. - OneRareRose  141.4 #2827 5:11PM

We have seen Walt Disney's dreams through our eyes as children in 1955 and as it is now and pray that we will continue to do so for many more years to come. Thank you Walt for making dreams come true for so many of us. - SeñorBuzz&Jessie  68.5 #4141 7:16PM
Walt Disney has had such a large impact on the world. He challenged the laws of possibility and did the impossible. His imagination has left a huge imprint on the Imagination of the people of the world. We owe him so much! He was a true visionary! - Nesabell  157.7 #2576 7:30PM

Thank you for bringing me and my friends so much happiness Walt! - Tom  10152.6 #5 9:12PM
Walt Disney was one of a kind. The amazing imagination of this man still boggles my mind. I feel so blessed to be an Ap holder and feel like Disneyland is like my backyard. I never take it for granted when I'm there and the feeling i get is just like it was the very first time I set foot on main street. My dad was one of the first children at Disneyland because my grandpa worked on all the electrical as the park was being built. A very fond memory for him and for me too! Thank you Walt!!  - aladdinfan  13.0 #9085 10:16PM
I love you Walt! If it wasnt for him none of us would have such a wonderful cheerful place to celebrate accomplishments or to go and make memories with family or friends :) he will live on forever what a great man! - DLandDoll  99.8 #3555 10:21PM
When I was four years old, I was hospitalized for almost two weeks with juvenile diabetes. Everyone in the department was at least sixty, so all the nurses and other patients spoiled me a little. I remember one elderly gentleman had his daughter go and buy me a copy of little mermaid, and some of the nurses bought me Ariel pajamas. I wore them every day and must have watched the movie two dozen times. It's funny how uncle Walt can make you look back on a dark time in your life and still make you smile. - LittleAprilShowers  565.3 #350 12:26AM

@@@Admin I booked with get away today and am staying at the HoJo in December.  Does MW still give the 100 credits or do I have to book with the hotel directly? - dsnylvr1975  24.6 #6396 5:02PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web

unFORECAST for the week of Nov 23, 2015
It's going to be packed this week! The Disneyland Resort has doubled fireworks, Fantasmic!, parades, World of Color and more. EXPECT LARGE CROWDS throughout the weekend. Here's a guide that outlines early closures for attractions affected by double fireworks/parades. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 80s (approx 80% capacity). Important note when comparing last year's Crowd Index: we've seen larger crowds on average this year due to the 60th Celebration activities. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Nov 23, 2015 6:18PM

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  587.3 #336 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7403 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  415.4 #517 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/ there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  164.8 #2471 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  248.9 #1342 5:04PM
