I can't believe it has been 2 years to this day that I downloaded MW onto my phone and haven't parted since. Over these 2 years I've seen the good, the bad and yes I guess I could say the drama, but all in all we've been a Disney Family through thick and thin. This year I also got to share my Disneyland/DCA vacation with you guys and I got to meet a Mousewaiter, Butterlina of course. Even though I More...
Hi and Happy Halloween! Hope each and everyone of you is having a spooktacular Halloween. So for those of us who can't be at the parks, like myself, on this holiday what are you doing tonight? Me, going to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas and pass out candy to the Trick-Or-Treaters.
Okay so a couple of days ago I went to Disneyland, decided try out the famous Matterhorn Sundae to which after finishing it I almost got sick, but that's not the reason I'm writing this post. I've noticed that in previous pictures I've seen here even before I tried the sundae that you get a button saying that you conquered the Matterhorn Sundae, so here's the thing I never got the button after I a More...
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!
