Just a question for those who use a DAS card. I am going to the parks tonight and I am going to have to use a wheelchair because of my knee. Do I have to get a DAS card or just being in the wheelchair enough? I can walk with my brace on but not comfortable enough to stand or walk on it for a long time. Don't know much about how the whole system works. Thanks
#RAK I have been able to be on MW a lot this week since I have been off from work all week from my fall this past sat at Disneyland and believe me you guys have entertained with all of your pictures. So here is a RAK to thank everyone. You have the choice of this Buzz Lightyear Astro blasters or this Dumbo limited release 2013 marathon pin. You can add for yourself or others and have at least 25 M More...

Thank you idvandalskippercm! This was my haul from company d yesterday. My mom got just as much as I did. I had so much fun. I had forgotten about all my stuff until this morning because I fell in toy story parking lot on way home yesterday and I can say that the hard payment won.

We had a great experience with CM Nina. There were only four of us on the fire truck and my mini was ringing the bell all the way Main Street . As we were getting off she started talking to him and he became such a chatter box with her. He normally is very shy. She spent so much time with talking to him a letting him sit in the front seat. What great experience!
Woody was loving my mini shirt. He was pretending to gallop around on a horse and out of no where Jessie comes up too. They interacted with him for so long all three of them were galloping around. It was cute😃😃
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!
