Married to Yeti_Man, he's my best friend, hero, and True love! We welcomed our first child a Prince we call "lil yeti". They are my entire world but I make time for Disney and Photography as minor obsessions!
I'm posting because I know she lurks in here. HAPPY 13th BIRTHDAY BEE!!! You're finally old enough to post on MW, even though you've been a member for 2 1/2 years and seen more meet ups MW birthdays and reunions than most. I love you Munchkin, and I wish I could be there! 4 months until our WDW trip!!! 😘
Happy Mothers Day to all the MW moms. I hardly come in here anymore but I think of all the amazing moms in here who helped me through my first days as a mom this morning. Thank you for all taking me under your wings. Love and miss you all. Have a great day Ladies!
In case you're interested here's the video of us surprising my baby sister who's been apart of MW since the beginning. She lurkes on here. I know she misses a lot of you! Thank you to those who helped me plan this for her. She texted me this morning "143 days until our Walt Disney trip. I'm so excited." :)
Happy 1st Birthday lil Yeti! It has been such an amazing year! Thank you to all of the mousewaiters who have gone on this journey with us! We love and appreciate you. I am blessed to know so many of you like family. I know some of you can't come today and you will be greatly missed. Congrats again to our friends Tina & John on your engagement, today is going to be a wonderful day for you two! We More...
So we just got permission to take my baby sister (she'll be 13) to WDW in September. It's our second trip (my husband and me) but our son (he'll be 18 months) and my sisters first trip. We want to surprise her and make it special, we can't decide how we want to tell her. Obviously we have quite some time but any suggestions would be appreciated. Also I should mention we're experts of Disneyland 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

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!
