I thought I posted this already but now I can't see it. Yesterday was the first time I had been in here. I'd always seen pictures of Breast's Library but never this area. I loved the detail! Glad it was open.
Does anyone know anything about a rumored closure of Radiator Springs Racers for a refurb this Fall? We haven't been on it yet and are really excited to ride on our next trip. I know there isn't an official announcement from Disney but we would love to get an idea if this might be true as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly. Thanks!
Do they do a character picture in Storytellers Cafe like they do at Goofy's Kitchen? We always get our family picture done at Goofy's Kitchen but we were planning to try a different character breakfast this trip. We still want our family picture taken before breakfast. Anyone know? Thanks!
I've seen pictures but can anyone tell me how many adults you can feed with the Family Size pizzas at Naples in DTD? I know they are big but we will have a large group and I am trying to budget. Thanks!
I created a calendar with all the September attraction and eatery closures. DM me with your email address if you would like a copy. I am a visual person and needed it all lined out in one place. **Indy closure is now on the official Disneyland list.

Calling all lurkers! Do you have stalker level knowledge of your favorite MWers but your user name has never hit the Lounge? This is the post for you! Our get to know our lurkers question of the day is: What year was your first visit to Disneyland? Estimations or generalities are allowed for those who can't remember or don't want to show their age. Ready go!
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!
