I have a question for everyone. I know that dinsney recently said that they would begin to enforce the fastpass return time. Does anyone know if they are actually doing this? I will be there tomorrow and it would be helpful to know.
I'm super excited for spring break this year for two reasons. #1 I'll be coming home to California, and #2 I'm bringing 4 international students with me who have never been to Disneyland. The problem is, we only have one day to spend at the resort. So, my question for all you is how do we decided what to do? Unless you have an empty park (wishful thinking), it's impossible fit everything in in one More...
Alright MW'ers, obviously Disneyland plays a huge role in each of our lives. So I'm curious, what is your favorite memory from the parks? Mine was the first time I took my niece, the look on her face when she first met Mickey was priceless.
Hi MW! I was on YouTube tonight, and I stumbled on this great video on PS 22 at the DLR last march. If you havn't see these kids be sure to check them out. Be sure to watch all the way to the end. The link at the bottom is to the performance at Disneyland http://tinyurl.com/6nktcpt
Today has been my favorite day in the lounge for a long time. I've seen some awesome photos today, many of which reminded me of childhood trips to the park. Thank you to everyone who has posted, and a big thanks to admin for making it all possible!
So, I did my first meet up last saturday in the parks, and it was sooo much fun that I have decided to host a holiday meetup at the parks. The tentative date is December 21 so that delux AP's can come to. If anyone is interested in helping to organize it would be greatly appreciated. See you at the parks!
Well, another successful trip to Disneyland is over, and I have the blisters to prove it! I wanted to post this yesterday, but I couldn't get any data in the park. Had a great time meeting some awesome MW's, and a big thankyou to the Evil's and Donnievegas for introducing me at the astroblaster meetup. For now, it's back to Montana, GO GRIZ!
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!
