I just booked our flights to Disney World. Jan 11th to the 17th. I've never been! What do I need to do, see, eat??? (I'd ask in the Disney World page, but I don't know them like I know you! And I'm a little shy.)
Last night my hubby (captain hook) took me to the Blue Bayou for my birthday it was our first time! We loved the Filet Mignon and Cajun Salmon, but the gumbo IMO was gross. Get the salad! We will defiantly be going back.
My hubby just surprised me a plane ticket to DL Sunday and Monday!! See ya later snow!
He booked Blue Bayou for one night and he asked me if I wanted to go to Carthay Circle or the Rainforest Cafe for the second night. What would ou guys do?
I am running the Tinker Bell Half and we are either booking The Grand or The Disneyland Hotel. (Which you can't book until July 11 fyi) Would you book the room as soon and they open or has anyone noticed prices tend to change the closer it gets?
Mickey came to Utah for the new store opening. My daughter was frozen when she saw him. Then warmed up to give him a hug and a kiss! I can't wait for Jan. when she can meet her favorite of all, Minnie!
At the new store in Utah, I think my daughter likes Minnie don't you!?https://www.facebook.com/NikkiPHall?__adt=3
They are doing an opening ceremony and a Minnie & Mickey meet and greet this Sat. I hope to see some MW there! https://www.facebook.com/events/198388506937035/
Ok I thought there was a Disneyland park crowd index chart somewhere. I am planning our next trip and would like see how busy it is at that time of year (January 2013). Last year we went in March and I won't do that again. Any ideas or am I just plain crazy :)
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!
