I live really close to legoland. It's great for small children. We go for quick visits with a pass, it's really easy to park, etc. I went today with my 6 yr old. There are 2 roller coasters she loves there. Kids under 10 love it. There's other fun things in SD too!
I don't want to get involved- just want to say that I saw the comment about the "mini meetup" yesterday and I didn't make any kind of negative correlation. I saw the reaction and I just didn't get it. I thought it was an inside joke about meet ups. It may have been innocent.
I *used* to love dl in the rain... Went in mid nov when it was cold and rainy all day. We had to leave when the kids were shivering. If you're not from socsl you prob have good weather gear, I'd bring it just in case. They close the hotel pools if it's raining.
I know what you mean about the line situation in Europe. I went to dl Paris a long time ago. The parisian guy that I went with couldn't handle any lines so the only thing we dud was Captain EO in French. Lol
Stroller theft at parks is on the rise. It stinks, esp when irreplaceable blankets, etc are taken. High end strollers like Bob's are targets. I usually leave my Bob at home and bring my Sit n Stand. No one wants that. I hope you found your stroller.
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!
