I am 30 years old and I live in Moreno Valley, CA. I travel to Disneyland as much as possible. Since I got an annual pass one year for Christmas I have been getting one every year after that. Disneyland holds a special place in my life. I DL
Hi everyone :). Since we heard about Billy Hill and The Hillbillies retiring in January GiantsFan2010 and I are going to plan a MW Meetup on that day for their final performance. We were thinking of creating a farewell banner and writing a message to them on it and have a cast member deliver it to them. So if you would like to write a message on there we can meet ahead of time to have everyone wri More...
Some of my favorite pictures taken yesterday from our trip. Had such a blast as always. To the MWters hanging out at Hungry Bear yesterday, my fiancé (GiantsFan2010) and I were the ones yelling Mousewait from the Mark Twain at night. I recognized a few faces so we decided to yell it out 😊. Hope you had a great night. 😄
I want to give a special shout out to iamdugsmaster! Thank you so very much for inviting us to this wonderful event!! It was so nice seeing you and so many other MWters. I now have more memories to add to my memory bank. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts 😊❤😊
Hello MW! I've been MIA for awhile. Have lots going on with life. Miss you all and hope you are all doing well. Here are my favorite pictures I took from yesterday's trip. Also met the lovely SUUZinOC_CM! She is a sweetheart! 😊
One of the things I noticed on my last trip while watching and waiting for the trolly at DCA is that there is a bit of a struggle sometimes to have guests give the right of way to the trolly when it's in motion. We saw this mostly at night and the CM's were doing their best to clear the path. One guest actually ran in front of it as it started moving and the CM had to quickly stop, but in a safe w More...
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

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!
