I haven't been on in a while but I still wanted to share this. My son received a Disney gift card for his first birthday. We took him shopping on Main Street at the end of his birthday trip to Disneyland and he chose this Thumper with big open-mouthed baby kisses!
Just came through on my Twitter feed, sorry if it's already been posted RT @disneyauditions: Seeking Disney Character performers for Fantasmic! this Sunday, December 2nd in Anaheim. #DisneyAuditions http://ow.ly/ftSzO
Hoping for some creative input: my husband and I are going to take my parents' to DL as their Xmas present. My dad has never ridden Dumbo and I would like for his first ride to also be my son's first ride on it (he'll be 7 months come Xmas). I'm just not sure how to present the idea. Since we are getting APs I was thinking of going before Xmas and taking a picture of my son on the stationary Dumbo More...
For those still looking: Still in stock at the Costco in Lake Elsinore, CA! I actually am at a loss for words doe the circumstances allowing us the financial resources to finally be getting our APs again. Thank you, Universe!
My anniversary is tomorrow and I found the PERFECT card at Walgreens. I didn't even look at the price (turna out it was only $3.49) I just had to have it for my husband. Carl and Ellie's story is so close to our own, he's going to love it.
Just wanted to share and put the idea out there: These are my son's Halloween costume photos; I used the scenery props outside of the Villains tent behind Big Thunder Ranch. It was easy to find an area out of guest's walking areas and easier than buying props or trying to find a decent spot at a pumpkin patch. Just wanted to pass along the idea to parents who might still need Halloween photos of t More...
Well not going to Disneyland on Tuesday. Sold out. Really disappointed because now my son can't ride Small World. This seems to happen every time I get excites about something. I know that sounds self-pitying (first world problems, I know) but it's incredibly frustrating.
Quick question: my son is 26ins, can he ride POTC? I meant to email guest services but now I won't get a response in time before our trip. I'm looking to avoid disappointing my husband by learning the ride restrictions for our son before we get to the park. Thanks!
My son is wearing the same creeper/onesie my parents put on me when I was a newborn, it's 27 years old! I'm hoping it lasts until he might be having kids. I was wondering if other MouseWaiters have Disney family heirlooms and if there are any good tips on preserving them.
I know ages of young children being taken to the park by eager parents has caused some debate here in the past, so I'm going to try to pose my question slightly differently. We've decided we absolutely won't be taking our baby to the parks but I was wondering: When were your kids actually able to recall details of their trips to Disneyland later than just the next day? We'd like to take advantage More...
For those of us that can't make it to the parks and have to live on a bit of a budget: Magicale can be purchased not only from Disney. Cheers!! http://vendomestore.com/magicalebrachettosparklingsweetredwineitaly7abv750ml.aspx

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!
