Today i was able to check off the Dream Suite off my bucket list, well sort off I would still love to stay there lol. I was able to tour it and it was beautiful. Tour lasted about an hour and that was not nearly enough time to fully appreciate the beauty of it all. So many things i was unable to photograph. Due to time constraints we were rushed a bit in some areas. I hope to be able to see it aga More...
Ok, I think this is the last of my spam; thanks for putting up with it! lol I had such an amazing time during the Dream Suite tour, so grateful to have experienced it. These pics of the master bedroom are my faves, the special effects were breathtaking. #DreamSuite
A few more pics from yesterday... This painting is in the master bedroom. Sorry the top one is blurry, but as you can see it's waterfalls and greenery. When the lights dim after pressing the Goodnight Kiss button fiber optic stars appear on the ceiling and all of a sudden these mermaids appear in the painting. Disney magic at it's best ✨ #DreamSuite
This train is in the second bedroom and was above our heads. A button is pushed, the lights dim, and voila! The train starts moving. The horse in the fourth picture was bobbing it's head up & down and the ship in the last pic was also in motion. #DreamSuite
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

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