 Best Post of the Day 12-5-13
Good morning! This day in Disney history, December 5th, 1901: A legend was born, Walter Elias Disney!

Walter Elias Disney was born to Flora Call Disney, a German-American and Elias Disney, an Irish-Canadian, in the Hermosa section of Chicago, Illinois.

Mr. Disney was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He was the fourth born Disney son. He was named after his parents pastor and friend Walter Parr, a preacher at St. Paul Congregational Church. The pastor, in turn, will later name his son Elias, after Walt's father.
Most of Walt's childhood was spent on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he began drawing, painting and selling pictures to neighbors and family friends. In 1911, the family moved to Kansas City, where his love for trains really developed. His Uncle, Mike Martin, was a train Engineer who worked on the route between Fort Madison, Iowa, and Marceline. Walt would later work a summer job with the railroad, selling newspapers and snacks to the travelers.

To watch a short biography of Walts life:


Walt and Lillian Disney with unnamed friend, London, 1935.

Walt Disney in my opinion, is a wonderful example of the American dream! He represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, Walt Disney was a great man! He and his brother Roy co-founded Walt Disney Productions, which became one of the best-known motion-picture production companies in the world!  Disney was an innovative animator and created the cartoon characters we all love to watch today. :) He won 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime, and was the founder of the magical playgrounds that ties us all together, Disneyland and Disney World.  Had he been alive today he would be 112 years old! Happy birthday Walt! Thank you so much for believing in your dreams! You are a true inspiration.  

In honor of today, it would be fun if we all mentioned our favorite quote from Mr. Disney. I'll go first, I have many, but this one always sticks out:

"I've always been interested in the past and history and I think it's vital."
Walt Disney

Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!

Ha! Loved rhe short vids- the one of them on the small Lilly Belle makes them look like they are Giants πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. And that was also a great video of his life- sadly, his daughter who is narrating it, just passed. I don't know that I have a favorite quote of his, but I did look at a book of his quotes, at world of Disney, a few visits back, and was absolutely amazed at what a genius this man was and so wise. Happy birthday Walt. Thanks Duchess! 😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5647.8 #17 9:41AM
Teehee, Idk why but I had a feeling you'd like the train vid! He really WAS a genius! Thank YOU Churro! - Duchess_SMK  6163.0 #16 11:04AM
After being apart of his park for the last couple years, I've gained so much more appreciation of his passion and work and how inspirational he was to not just his own people, but to the world. He was innovative, he was trend setting, he was a smart business man and a dreamer. The world would be a lot different if he hadn't taken those risks of creating an entire movie made of cartoons, building a theme park from almost nothing and creating stories with lovable characters. Also, he was willing to try new things with technology and used them to the best of his advantage. Now after almost 40 years after he left us, its hard not to come in contact with something Disney-related where ever you are in the world and Mickey is still one of the most recognizable symbols and characters. I think his legacy and passion is still present in the parks and in the company, how it is always changing and exploring new ways to tell new stories. And I still get chills every time I hear his voice. Thank you and Happy Birthday Walt! - BaseballMickey_CM  7190.2 #8 10:35AM
πŸ‘‹ well said Sir! So blessed to work at such a magical place! What's your favorite Walt quote?  - Duchess_SMK  6163.0 #16 5:10PM

Wonderful post!!! My favorite Walt Disney quote is...  "You shoot, shoot, shoot all the film you need because if it’s not in the can, you will never have it." ❀️ - Boundin  614.8 #310 7:58PM
Thanks for this post!  I'm a big quote person, and this is my favorite from Walt Disney: "Children are people, and they should have to reach to learn about things, to understand things, just as adults have to reach if they want to grow in mental stature. Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows. Most things are good, and they are the strongest things; but there are evil things too, and you are not doing a child a favor by trying to shield him from reality. The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil, and that is what our pictures attempt to do."  πŸ˜Šβœ¨ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  601.0 #319 8:21PM

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 August 31, 2015
Look for light crowds this week until Labor Day weekend begins on Friday. Disneyland and California Adventure will close early for the second week in a row (DL 9pm, DCA 8pm). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 50s (approx 60% capacity) -- that means it was a very slow week. Even Labor Day last year (which fell on the 1st) averaged in the mid 70s, which is light for a holiday. Now that most schools are back in session, we should see lighter crowds at the Parks until Halloweentime begins! 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 Aug 31, 2015 9:23PM

summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4816.7 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.4 #10626 9:33AM

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.
