Hello All! I've got a question that I know one of you will be able to help me out with. My fiancé and I are going to be getting APs next week before we head down to the parks. We are going to order them online, so what I'm wondering is, when we go to the gates will they issue us our pass right there or do we go to City Hall? It's been a while since we've gotten passes and I've kinda forgotten. Th More...
Hello All! I haven't been on MW in way too long, but a lot has been going on to keep me away but I am happy to say we are headed to Disneyland today! Getting ready to make the 6 hour drive down with my family to celebrate my Mom's 50th birthday! So excited! Hope to see some of you this week! Have a great day everyone!
Lunch at Hungry Bear Restaurant! Turkey & Provolone Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries, Fried Chicken Sandwich with Sweet Potatoe Fries, one LARGE sprite and all for $20 after my AP Discount! It's good to be home!
My findings from Walgreens yesterday! Left to right...Wall decals $2.50, gel window clings $2.50 (there's more on the sheet than what's pictured but I couldn't fit the whole thing), and then there's the Mickey & Minnie wall hangs that are completely glittered out lol and they were only $3.99 each! Just thought I'd give a heads up!
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!
