I would just like to say that I have a new favourite place thanks to all you MouseWaiters. It is the Animation Academy! :D Yesterday was my first time there and I absolutely loved it!! I just sat in the main room and took it all in, but next time I hope to explore it a bit more.
Hi All!!! I will be at Disneyland for one day on Monday, June 11th and I am sooo stoked!!!! It's been a whole year and 3 months since I was last there, so I am so thankful for this one day trip! I hope to see some of you there!! :D
Good morning everyone. Just thought I would share this bit of information that I found out this morning from my Disney Page A Day Calendar. To all the 101 Dalmations lovers out there... Perdy has 68 spots and Pongo has 72. :)
I would really just like to take this time to thank all the MouseWaiters who were at the parks today and posted rainy day pics for the rest of us that couldn't be there. You guys really came through for us today and we really appreciate it!! Love you all!!!!!!!!! And I hope you all had a wonderful day at the parks!!
I am missing Disneyland sooo much right now!! I know this is going to sound stupid, but I'm vacationing in Maui right now with my family for a couple weeks, and it's not that I'd rather be at Disneyland, but I keep thinking about how much I would like to be there. Maui's great!! But it's just not... MAGICAL!!!

I really wish I could have been there to celebrate with you guys, but am very thankful for all the live pics that were posted throughout the day. You guys ROCK!!!

Ok MouseWaiters, do you want to hear something stupid? Today I was looking up Disney fonts for a project for school and I found this really awesome website that has a bunch of them.

Hey guys! I know this isn't Disney related and I'm sorry, but I just wanted to share.. I just finished my first official 5km run today and I am so proud of myself! It took me about 40 minutes, but it didn't matter because I ran the whole way without stopping. :) Anyways, sorry for the illegal post, I'm just so happy!!!!
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!
