thank you! thank you! i've always enjoyed MW, but now that i work for Disney, i feel like i should try harder to get to know my fellow MWers, instead remaining that quiet kid in the corner. i mean, isnt that why we're all here? because we love Disney? im sure i've passed by a bunch of you in the park without even realizing it. i dont want that! i want to be friends with all the awesome MWers!
most people seem to hate us :/ i guess they think we are trying to sell them something. it would be nice if they at least listened to what we have to say, instead of shying away. to those who said they dont do the surveys, but are at least polite when declining, thank you for your courtesy - its so much better than trying to come up with "excuses" :) and to those who do our surveys, thank you! tha More...
i would love to explain all of the "whys" with you guys. truly, i would. why we do certain things the way that we do. i totally understand your aggrevation, and i feel like if you guys understood the whys, then it would make things so much easier for both of us! unfortunately, i am not allow to divulge any information. the surveys are strictly confidential. and i dont want to get fired. but know t More...
btw. i am trying to like people's comments, but it seems that whenever the page refreshes, my likes disappear. i guess im not doing it right. i also responded to someone asking about my username, but now that post seems to have disappeared too. my username is simply the first half of my real name. if you can track me down in the park, say hi! i promise i wont harass you.
haha Calypso that's exactly what happened to mine! I have a matte-looking skech cover on the back, and an invisible shield cover on the front. dropped it a million times. never a problem until the day it fell straight down. screen severely injured. it seems like it was the impact of the fall that caused it to suffer so:(
This is MrMOMzers wonderful picture with a little magic added! We've been beta testing the MouseWait Advanced Composer for awhile now. This allows approved MWers to create their own "column" in the Lounge with expanded posts, pics, and videos inside the post. We are ready to open this feature up to more people who are intersted in having their own MouseWait Column in the Lounge. Your posts could be featured on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ and seen by our 100,000+ strong social media audience!
This feature is best used for instructional posts, history posts (like Duchess_SMK's column), and for reporting news (i.e. BaseballMickey_CM's posts). You could also do this to create a post describing your recent visit to the Parks with multiple pictures, videos, and more--think of it like an article that would appear in a magazine. The Advanced Composer only works on the web version. GO HERE TO APPLY and watch your email for more info (make sure you're email client is not blocking our emails or sending them to Spam--for some reason icloud.com, me.com, and mac.com will not allow our messages to come through.)
Thank you to everyone who strives to add quality content to the Lounge! Thanks again to MrMOMzers for the amazing picture!
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 Thursday!
