Good morning! This day in Disney history, July 13th, 1925: Walt Disney marries Lillian Marie Bounds at Lewiston's Espiscopal Church of the Nativity in Lewiston, Idaho.

Since Lillian's father is deceased, her Uncle who is chief of the Lewiston Fire Department gives her away. Reverend D.J.W. Somerville performs the ceremony and Lillian's sisters, Hazel Sewell and Sydney Bounds, are the witnesses.

The Newlyweds met at work when Lillian moved to LA in 1923. She was hired at Walt Disney Studios as a inker of animated cels and secretary. Walt and Lillian had two children, Diane Marie Disney and Sharon Mae Disney who was adopted.

Below is a photo from July 13, 1955, just four days before the official opening of Disneyland. A 30th anniversary party for the two love birds was held at the Golden horseshoe. Three hundred guests were invited. A few of the guests in attendance, Spencer Tracy, Gary Cooper, and Cary Grant. Guests were chauffeured down main street U.S.A in horse-drawn surreys down to Frontierland where they boarded the Mark Twain and sipped on mint julieps. Next, they were treated to the very first, but unofficial, performance of the Golden Horseshoe Revue.

Today would have been their 88th wedding anniversary! :)

In 1957 (supposedly) The petrified tree stump was installed in Frontierland near the ROA. (although I have found a few sites that waiver on the exact date)
Originally purchased in 1956 as a 31st anniversary gift for Lillian, it was reported that she was quoted as saying it was "too big for the mantle." ::giggles:: Unsure what to do with it, she donated it to the park.

I'm guessing it was really Walt that wanted the tree for himself. ;)
The original tree was from the Pike Petrified forest in Colorado and was estimated to be 200' tall.

The plaque in front of the tree reads:

"PETRIFIED TREE 
FROM THE
 PIKE PETRIFIED FOREST, COLORADO
 THIS SECTION WEIGHS FIVE TONS AND MEASURES 7 1/2 FEET
IN DIAMETER. THE ORIGINAL TREE, ESTIMATED TO HAVE
 BEEN 200 FEET TALL, WAS PART OF A SUB-TROPICAL FOREST
55 TO 70 MILLION YEARS AGO IN WHAT IS NOW COLORADO.
 SCIENTISTS BELIEVE IT TO BE OF THE REDWOOD OF SEQUOIA
 SPECIES. DURING SOME PRE HISTORIC ERA A CATACLYSMIC 
UPHEAVAL CAUSED SILICA LADEN WATER TO OVER SPREAD
 THE LIVING FOREST. WOOD CELLS WERE CHANGED DURING THE
 COURSE OF TIME TO SANDSTONE. OPALS WERE FORMED
 WITHIN THE TREE TRUNK ITSELF. PRESENTED TO DISNEYLAND
 BY 
MRS. WALT DISNEY
 SEPTEMBER, 1957"

Again, I'm unsure why the plaque says September, perhaps someone here knows? Perhaps it is the day it was officially presented to Lillian in the park? Still very interesting on this special day for Walt and Lillian.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks, as always for reading!

Wow what a time it must have been. Great place to celebrate 30 years. I'm guessing you are right about the tree, Walt probably liked it so much he was sure Lillian would too. I would also speculate the plaque reads September due to Lillian taking a few months to figure the best way to get "rid of it" without offending Walt. Thank you Duchess. - GrumpyPirateDad  1938.8 #92 1:15PM
I don't know many women who could appreciate a petrified tree...I'm thinking it may have been a sort of gag gift. Teehee. Thank YOU Sir! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 3:42PM
I love this post...always great info, Duchess! 👍👏 - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #616 1:18PM

Thanks for this! The petrified tree is so cool. - missariel33  2115.6 #76 2:27PM
If I were a prehistoric tree, I would've wanted to be petrified so that I could spend the rest of my days at Disneyland. I ask people to take a picture of the stump at sunset and they cannot find it. - Midasgold  633.3 #332 3:19PM

When I went on the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour our guide said there had been some sort of gem stone in the tree. If I remember correctly the gems were opals, and that was the real gift. - meowmixx619  302.5 #934 12:42AM

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 www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. 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 May 9, 2016 5:42PM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105817 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6429.8 #20 8:10PM
