My husband and I are heading to DTD soon for some Earl of Sandwich and a stroll with our baby girl. Wish we were going to the parks but maybe next month or Sept. I'm still excited! Hope everyone else is having a great day!
Shout out: The lovely IDVandalSkipperCM sent me some goodies for my baby girl. It was so very generous and awesome of her to do. I appreciate this app for letting us mommys chat about our babies. And now I can't wait for our little families to meet, hopefully one day soon!
Question: My husband surprised me with a so cal pass but I have yet to activate it. Can my first use be on a blockout day? I wasn't sure since I would need to go to a main ticket booth to activate it and then have the pass when I enter a turnstile, therefore displaying I am blocked out. Thanks in advance.
Finally visited the Reagan Library to view the Disney exhibit. These are some pics I took: Mary Poppins' costume, James Marsden's costume from Enchanted, a chair and ship model from the Pirates movies, and a bear from the Country Bear Jamboree. It was a great exhibit and I wish I had seen it sooner.
Question for parents: I am aware of the baby centers located inside the parks, but was wondering if there is anything similar in Downtown Disney or the resort hotels. Are there family restrooms or a nicer restroom with a changing table and seating (for nursing), etc? If anything, I don't mind sitting in the Grand lobby while using my nursing cover. Thanks!
Hey all! I have only met a few of you briefly once at a meetup but I really wanted to share a pic of the newest love in my life. Introducing my first mini, Anaya Elizabeth, born on Friday at 5:15pm, and weighing 8.2lbs and measuring 20 in. My husband and I are so happy and I look forward to her future trips to the parks.
Good morning, everyone! I normally don't make posts like this but I'm in a really good mood and wanted to wish all of you a wonderful day. My baby girl is due Jan 18 and I'm just so excited knowing that she will be here soon. : )
I went to the Disney Baby store grand opening in Glendale and purchased two t-shirts and a onesie for my baby girl due in January. Overall, the store had some cute clothing but was a little small. However, there was more available than what I have found in the parks, World of Disney, and other Disney stores.
Has anyone noticed if Earl of Sandwich is open yet in DTD or if they have started working on the building in which it will be located? Thanks in advance. My pass may be expired but I plan on making several trips over the summer just for some sandwiches.
Enjoyed yesterday at DL with my bf celebrating my bday. We also got to meet some very nice MWers. The bf wants to go back to DCA and meet MWers again. Thanks to admin and this great app! This is my fave part of IASW.
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!
