I knew that I had seen "Weekday Ping" dressed as Mulan before! I had to steal the left pic from another post (iamdugsmaster, maybe?) since I didn't see her last week, but the one on the right I took with her for Lunar New Year.
#WANTED! Last week I was able to take pictures with all of the 10 Long Lost Friends group, but somehow I missed getting a card from the Sleeping Beauty fairies. I've got extras of many of the others, if anyone has an extra to trade. Thanks!
An interesting thing I never noticed before, but learned from the Dave Smith presentation the other day...the Plaza Pavillion (now home to Jolly Holiday) has two completely different facades. The Main St. side is the white Victorian-ish part on the left and the Adventureland side on the right is part of what is now the Enchanted Tiki Room. Those trees in the middle help disguise the illusion.
The Ariel Undersea Adventure ride at WDW is virtually the same, down to the un-dole-whipped hair, but of course the exterior and queue are completely different. I didn't expect the mural to be different as well.
I don't really consider this a spoiler, as you can't tell very easily where each egg is located, but I'm going to post it in games anyway. ;p The most challenging eggs for me were the Hollywood Backlot and the Wharf.
#Tip: I've seen several posts about starting a pressed penny collection, and I thought I would offer a little friendly advice since I have some photo examples. First, choose only pre-1982 pennies. These are made of copper and when pressed, will not have other "silver" metals show through. The examples below are my own. The ones on the left were gathered at WDW last week, made from "good" penn More...
The line for the Princess Royal Walk is thiiiis long. If you want to meet the princes today, the line closes at 4:30 at the latest, no matter what. If the line reaches the "Brave" sign, it will close early. The next group of characters will not appear until 4:30.
My New Years loot! Calligraphy (supposedly it says "Good luck in the year of the snake" and my name, I haven't read Chinese in a long time), a zodiac caricature, lantern, and snake chain. Next year, I want red envelopes, but instead of money, they can put fast passes and arcade tokens in them. ;p
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!
