Random Trader Sam's question... I got a light-up ice cube in my drink, was I suppose to keep it?? I did because the service was terrible and sometimes I'm a bad person, but, ya know... For next time? :-)
☀☀Good morning MW friends! I could use some of your prayers and pixie dust this morning! Last night was my last day at my job, and this morning I'm starting a new one! I'm a little nervous, my last job I wasn't a huge fan of, but the people were my family! It's always scary to jump into something new! Hope you all have a great day!
My new wallet came in the mail today - totally stoked! If anyone is thinking of ordering it, do it! It's good quality and very lovely! My only complaint is that I have a lot of cards (I'm a chick, it kind of comes with the territory! 😝) and it's a little too stiff yet to close with them all inside! Hopefully it will give a little with time. :-)
Got this off of Twitter from Stephanie J. Block. She's a Broadway actress who apparently played Belle at some point in Disneyland. It made me 😂 so I thought i'd share: "Just remembering when I played Belle at Disneyland years and years ago... I'd be so tan during the summer, they called me Taco Belle."
Well, MW family, the time has come. For the last 5 days I've been home sick in bed with a brutal sinus infection, and while the infection rages on, it's back to work anyway! But I wanted to say ✨✨Thank You✨✨ to everyone here who kept me entertained when the outside world seemed so far away! Grand prize must go to the guy who reported the poop-n-run in NOS. That was quite a load you gave us More...
To all fellow MWers who don't live anywhere near the parks: does being on MouseWait make the wait until your next trip a little more bearable? Or does seeing all the pics and hearing all the stories make the wait more difficult for you? I can't decide which it is for me, so I figured I'd ask the masses. :-)
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!
