Hey mousewaiters! In march I'm taking my dad to the parks for his birthday. He hasn't gone in about 10 years. I go every 3 months or more. A lot has changed in 10 years and I want to show him a good time. I know for his birthday dinner I am making reaervations at carthay circle theater. However, I'm open for suggestions on other cool ideas that would make his birthday a little more magical!
I was told by someone who thinks they know everything... Don't we all know someone like that? Anyways I thought this would be the place to ask! She said that Disneyland had a dedication of some kind and had a special book that guests could sign and their names would be in it forever. I didn't believe her because I would have heard about it somewhere. But she said her boyfriends brother did it. Can More...
Radiator springs racers breaks down a lot, why? What seems to be the problem? To many people riding the riding? Is it to high tech and it has bugs that need to be worked out? Because its similiar to test track at WDW, and during my visit there test track didn't break down this frequently or not at all just curious on other thoughts!
Honestly is the Disney vacation club a waste of money? I've watched informational videos on it and they all seemed very nice however, a big waste of money. I would like opinions from members or other people who have looked into it.
Let's go back to July 17 2005, the 50th anniversry of disneyland. Is today worse or less busy as that day in Disney history? I was there and camped out all night to be one of the lucky ones on July 17! What an experience. Today would have be so cool to be there to experience this day in Disney history!
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!
