This was a gift from Nancy Lasseter, she handed it to us after we toured the Winery. She took us down to their private lake and we got to see the motorhome John used as a inspiration for Cars. John and Nacy were some great hosts! I wanted to share some of those photos but we were asked not too share on social networks. This is signed by John. This is a Rosé wine and very good but the best was cal More...
I would like to share a little something i learned on the Pixar Cruise. On the Radiator Spring Racers Attraction each car has a different licence plate, each plate is dedicated to an
Imagineer. The first letter is first initial of his/her first name, the next 2 numbers are birth month, followed by a dash and birth day, and his/her last name initial.
This is the entrance to the Lasseter Family Winery. I was looking forward to sharing more pics but Nancy and John asked us to not share pics of their private space. They greets us with open arms and showed us the property and it was beautiful. The wines are great.
This is the Pirate Oath you get when you do The Pirate League. When you enter you roll the dice and that with a combination of your birthday , first and last name you are assigned a pirate name. Guys get black eyes and others and the gals get pretty. For a young man this is a very fun activity on a busy day in the parks.
From Miceage; The addition of Voices of Liberty out front this summer has done nothing to help the low attendance at the Mr. Lincoln show. Beginning August 23rd the theater is going to be used for special AP screenings of classic Disney movies on select evenings through October. APs will be able to vote online or at the park for which movies they want to see on the big screen, and then sign up fo 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!
