Thank you for your wonderful post! I think being there on opening day and seeing the castle for the first time would've been absolutely incredible!! And, knowing that Walt was there, on the resort. I definitely would have walked up to him, said hello, and asked for a photo. I probably would've been wearing a nice soft, lemon yellow dress and brought a cardigan for later. (Love how mid-century Tomorrowland is! Those chairs and shade providers๐Ÿ˜) thanks!๐Ÿ˜˜ - misschurro  7605.4 #12 10:02AM

One of the things that I love about MouseWait is the way we rally around longstanding members of our community in their time of need. DizneyGirl needs our help for her daughter Claire.

My heart overwhelms with joy, to be able to take part of this time of need and just to see the wonderful hearts that open up to give of our prayers, time, finances.

So the past two days that I was at Disney I noticed an increased presence of police officers and me and my sis in law felt like I needed to do something nice to pay it forward to let them know there are people who stand behind them. As they wear the black Mourning band around their badge. So we each bought 4 $5 Starbucks gift cards and handed them out to the ones I came across and thanked them fo  More...

Thank you for the kindness you have shown these deserving individuals. Last year I met a really nice Anaheim police officer. He was doing traffic duty for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon. He let me stand in the middle of Ball Road with him so I could take pictures. We talked at length. He told me about his family, etc. They are all Disneyland AP pass holders and he takes his sons to Disneyland regularly. Iโ€™ve seen him since then and wave to him and smile, he remembers. My late brother-in-law was a career police officer. He had many assignments including undercover, narcotics, most days difficult and dangerous. He also got a cool assignment one time to be part of Elvis Presleyโ€™s police guard while on tour. He spent some serious time with him and when it was over Elvis gave him a nice gift. Sometimes we forget that those that protect us are just like you and me with families and bills to pay, but their jobs are stressful and dangerous. Thank you to all who serve and protect. - jacdanfan  12350.1 #6 7:41AM
This is so true and such a great memory. I think our world was forever changed since 911 and I can remember it as though it was yesterday. It was a Wednesday and we walked into AAA as they were watching the broadcast and we flew out on Friday the 13th very Erie and scary but for some reason felt very safe. When we got to dw things were so different with the bag checks that changed the entrance to our magical place. Never noticed so many uniform officers in the parks befor this. I appreciate all that they do to keep us safe and do not get paid enough to do the job they do as do so many other service professions. It still amazes me how many complaints we hear as they are checking. This is such a great idea, I may have to borrow it๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ - mmddgp  1171.7 #7 5:33AM

This is such a thoughtful gesture! I sometimes stop and speak to the officers just past bag check. They are always so happy and friendly. I may have to do this when visiting on Saturday. Thanks for doing this and posting about it!   - grumpypapa  7429.2 #13 7:21AM

STICKERS: will be gifted by RAK entry time order. Please help me gift by: Use MouseWait name for sticker as shown in Store, it makes it easier for me to search my collection. To save time you should probably look in the Store for a sticker you would like and then request. That will be quicker for you than trying to scroll thru my collection. I have duplicates for most stickers but not all. Also, please request 2 stickers, your first choice and your second choice, in that order. Hopefully I can gift your first choice.

 for this generous RAK. Please add me! I'll pick the 50s and a more business-y fact.  It cost $17 million and took 1 year to construct Disneyland. It cost $16 million and twice as long to build Thunder Mountain in 1979. It cost $17 million and took 1 year to build Splash Mountain in 1989. Pretty crazy! - RoyalCourtComposer  343.3 #731 8:40PM

Awesome RAK! Please add me. My favorite decade has to be the 90's because that was when I was in my childhood. Also, Disney released some of my favorite movies: The Lion King, Aladdin, and my personal favorite, Beauty and the Beast. Beauty and the Beast was the first animated film to be nominated for Best Picture (overall) at the Oscars, and not just best animated picture. Lastly, the 90's also saw the release of Pixar's first film, Toy Story! It just seemed like Disney raised it's game during this decade. - BAMBAM  706.2 #0 8:13PM
