GET READY! This Tuesday night you'll witness the groundbreaking release of this guy -- yes, your favorite goat will be recreating the "Goat Effect" for your viewing pleasure. He's a little nervous (and dizzy), since he hasn't seen many of you for what seems like an eternity, but he hopes that his animate More...
Morning from Sacramento, Disney Lovers. Just thought I'd stop by and have some fun. Question of the day: "Which Fantasmic show is better?" Enter #1- DLR, CA or #2- DHS, FL. Have fun and this should be interesting. H.A.G.D!
My husband pre-ordered Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix as a gift for Mother's Day. I have to tell you, I am beyond EXCITED for this release! I do have KH1 and KH2 on PS2... I'm hoping the glitches and gameplay are improved for the PS3 platform! Had to share!
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 read more about Walts love for trains

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