Hi guys. Just updated my MW app and now when I open it, a anti virus window opens up and says it's scanning my cell. I've already messaged support/admin just wondering if anyone else has had this happen???

Hope my MW family had a Merry Christmas and is having a great New Year so far. I've just found out today that I'll be unemployed in a few months because my office is relocating out of state. It's such bad news to hear your first day back to work but I'm hopeful it's a blessing in disguise and good things are coming. If any of you could send some pixie dust my way I'd really appreciate it. For thos More...
If any of you ever have an annual pass expire before you get the time to renew it, don't worry! Yesterday I went online to renew my son's pass and almost cried when I discovered it expired 2 days ago. I have a trip coming up in 2 weeks and hated the idea of paying the $87 down to get a new pass but I called the customer service line and was informed that if a pass expires, we have a 30 day grace p More...
Any CM's, please help!! I was going to renew my sons AP online and just noticed it expired 2 days ago! I thought I had until next weekend. I really can't afford the $87 they require down for a new pass at the moment though. Do you think if I talk to a CM over the phone tomorrow, that they might be able to renew it without the down payment since its only a few days late? Or do you think its not pos More...

Hey MWers. I was listening to my Pandora and a song from The Princess & the Frog came on. I was thinking about how much I love that movie cause of all the great music and how it makes me want to be in NOS. I realized then that it has become my fav Disney Princess movie. Growing up it was always Sleeping Beauty but my love for NOS has changed my mind. Have any of you fallen for a newer movie? What More...
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!
