Thank you everyone for the posts...we we're suppose to go to the parks to help celebrate mouse wait birthday and get our first ever yearly passes but from the videos I've seen I can't justify to spend the money when my special needs child won't be able to ride much...granted our disability is more visible with her in a wheelchair not being able to communicate tube ECG the way the system work More...
For those of you who are cast members I HoPE none of you deal with customers who get angry with you once this change takes affect...I myself am not happy with changes and it will probably mean no A P passes for my family or any more Disney visits not worth th amount of money we spend for my severely disabled child to only be able to ride a couple of rides in one day...but regardless none of you sh More...

Lost one expensive earring on California screaming...was my first time on the ride..there should be a day where you can go under those attractions that you most likely will loose something it's like a treasure chest down there lol
We have been at all three...now the Grand is beautiful but the rooms are basic pretty much the same at all three except the wood furnishings get darker the more the room costs lol even though paradise pier is the "cheapest" of all three the front desk staff has been exceptional I don't think there is a time that we didn't get upgraded when checking in and that was without asking the cm there reall 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!
