After almost 5 months of not going to Disneyland, the best boyfriend ever decided to give me my birthday present a day early. If you've seen the video of Kristen Bell on Ellen then you'll know exactly how I feel. We'll be in the park tomorrow morning and the first thing I'm going to do of course is grab a birthday pin! YAY! I'm so excited to be at my second home again 😊 happiest place on earth.
Did anyone spot Hayley Williams from Paramore at the parks today? My friends and I saw her leaving main street around 10pm. We really wanted to take a picture but she noticed us and started to put her hoodie on :( and we didn't want to bother her for a picture or autograph.
The lines are unbelievably long when Mickey comes out. Good thing I saw him striding out with a CM in my peripheral and screamed,"OMG! it's Mickey! Run!" You can tell we were all very excited to get our picture taken. Who were you ecstatic to see and take pictures with?
Dilemma? So I am currently a premium AP and am now really thinking about working for Disney because I love it so much. Would it be a waste of my $450 if I go for the job when I can get in the park for free if I work there? I just wanna know what y'all think. Would I be losing or actually gaining? Let me know!
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

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!
