dont know if I can post links so if this gets removed "my bad"
this is the cutest video ever of a little girl at the jedi training academy at disneyland
heres a question for all the cast members in the house... on your time off do you find that you still end up at the parks. I know I'd have a hard time not being there even If I had spent 40+ hrs there working I'd still have a need to go just to soak up the good atmosphere.
watched WOC on youtube last night and got all teary eyed it was just last week we were there and I miss it soo much. me and my daughter have decided we want to live at disneyland for at least a yr. told her we better start working on winning the lottery
so I still cant use my phone app having my fingers crossed everything is running when we get to the park Thurs. called yesterday to confirm everything with the disneyland hotel and find out what we should do since we are going to be arriving earlier than check in and I'm sure not going to be that close to Disneyland and have to wait because of check in to get into the parks Im sooooo dang excited More...
I've been scanning the menus in the food area and am wondering where we should eat since it's our first trip there. 3adults 2kids one of them is a super picky eater. We don't wanna break the bank but don't mind paying if the food and experience is worth it
9 work days left till I'll be there! I'm going to running on coffee and pure joy that first day. I get home from work at 0330 and leaving right then for the park! I live finally being on the count down
Hi everyone been a troll on here for about a month and decided to join we are in AZ and have never been to Disneyland but I grew up in FL and DW was an almost every weekend thing. We have our first trip to DL the last week of march staying at the DL hotel
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!
