#TIP - When entering wait times use whatNEXT? because it shows everything around you that you can enter wait times (and earn points) for. A lot of people use the ToDo list to enter times too. Post your wait time tips and tricks here.
Here is a story of some Disney magic that happened to me last night. My wife, service dog, and I were waiting for fantasmic last night and a lady and her son sat next to us. We sat down 2 hours early so we had some time to kill and we talked to them. We found out they were from out of state and never seen fantasmic. My wife left to take the dog for a walk and they asked me if I would save their pl More...

What's your favorite MouseWait raido station? They are all wonderful, but lately I've been enjoying closing my eyes and listening to Cantwaits "walking the park" station. It really helps let your imagination go wild.
I don't want to see any more posts about Housewaiting - if you think there is an issue then email me, but don't post about it. There was a user wrongly accused of Housewaiting last night - it is irresponsible to accuse someone when you don't have any facts and that is NOT why I put rank under wait times.
I would personally like to thank all the 2.0 beta testers/users who gave so much of their personal time and investment into MW to make 2.0 such a fabulous upgrade! If it wasn't for you guys providing all the feedback and problem-solving we would not have 2.0 so much sooner for the rest of the MW community to enjoy. So here's to all of you!! 
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!
