I had an awful day today and need to vent. My sister is just an all around unpleasant person, yet I always make an effort to have her in my life because she's family and it would really devastate my dad if we weren't on speaking terms...but she's rude, unfriendly, and it's painful to spend time with her. What do you do when someone in your immediate family is like this? Put up with it? I'm getting More...
To everyone who I met at the teen meet, it was lovely meeting you. I really wanted to hang for the day but my sister is a non MWer who doesn't understand my obsession and is not pleasant around strangers in general. I  you all.
Okay so we watched WoC tonight from the soak zone, front and center. And I have to say that this was a WAY better show/overall experience then seeing it from any other angle. If you didn't think WoC was AMAZING and weren't in a premium viewing area, please give it a second chance. It blew my mind. 
Hey guys! My friend who is with me wants says that she knows people who have Disneyland cast member-esqe name tags that are personalized with their names. I've never heard or seen these around, but she wants one desperately. If anyone knows where they are sold or how she can get one, I'd love to know! Thanks! 
Attention anyone waiting for their iPhone 4! Apple has sent out an email to some preorder customers that they will be shipping early, on the 23rd. Did anyone receive this email? It was said that when you check the status of your shipping order, if the status with fedex is "shipped" you will likely receive it tomorrow! Woohoo!
Good Morning MW! I wasn't on all weekend pretty much. I hope you all had a great fathers day! I had such a stressful weekend. Won't go into the details but here's hoping to a better week. I already sense it will be better because I checked the status of my iPhone 4 and it now has a tracking number with FedEx overnight!  Anyone elses have one? Have a great day everyone!
Omg...just when i think the day can't get any more crazy. A POSSUM came into our bedroom through our balcony door. We keep it open on warm nights. No idea what to do or if it's still in there. Ugh. Crazy.
Help! I am at my wits end with my dog! She is a 5 year old West Highland Terrier who USED to be well behaved and house broken. Ever since MrHoney and I moved in together 6 months ago, I can't get her to listen, she barks constantly, and he has accidents in the house. Moving in with him did introduce new animals into her life, so at first I thought she was just acting out. But we crate her every ni More...
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!
