It was an amazing interaction with Jack and Sally... When I first walked up you could see the excitement in Sally's eyes as she said Finally we are reunited with our long lost friends.. They both we asking us questions and it totally blew me away with how candid and real it felt. Way to go Disney!!!
MHP was AMAZING!!!!!! I was totally blown away by how many guests and CMs were complementing us on our costumes.. I lost track of how many times we were stopped to have our picture taken and to pose for a picture with parents kids etc. I have to say this has to be one if not the best visit to Disneyland my wife and I have ever had.. Even with being married at the Disneyland hotel some almost More...
So excited. Leaving Vegas in the morning just the wife and I for our first ever trip to MHP.... Going to spend some time tomorrow at the Garden Walk getting ready for Friday night. Can't wait to see all the costumes and see my favorite place on earth dressed up for Halloween. In all the years we have been going to the parks we have never been during this time of year.
So the wife and I are planning on going to the mickeys Halloween party this year. We have never been to Disneyland during the Halloween time even with my over 300 visits under my belt. Do you think a 4 and 6 year old will be able to handle it??? Remind you these are the kids who love Disneyland but freaked out after an hour and a half during our last trip almost a year ago.

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!
