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  1845.8 #78 1:15PM

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  299.6 #855 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 week of June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here
