So I have a small question... We are going to dapper day on Sunday. my wife is encouraging me to wear my service uniform, but I don't want to feel like I'm over doing it. I'm fine just wearing me "dick van dyke" suit. Lol. What do y'all think? is wearing the uniform cool? Or over doing it?
So this isn't Disney related, but rather Dream related... A very good friend of mine just released his first Album on ITunes!! I met him at our first duty station and since day 1 almost 4 years ago he's been chopping at this. He had to go through some rough personal time, and a lot of sleepless nights, to make connections, record and master, but he's finally done! And best of all its so Great!!! I More...
im asking this as my last resort. im about to buy the tix for the 5k but before i do im trying to figure out if strollers are allowed on the course....? ive googled, looked on the site, and called (closed)
i want to buy them tonite, but if they dont itll change my number of entries(if we can even enter at all.... thank you in advance!!
Happy veterans day to all those who have sworn to protect our freedom from all enemies foreign and domestic, both passed and present. for this reason we are able to enjoy our wonderful freedoms. And Disneyland!
Got into a car accident this morning....the kids and wife weren't in the car, and im okay...but the storm trooper is out of commission. And were car-less till it gets fixed (cull coverage, but no rental) so no Disney trips for a while....boo. Usually this is the moment where id ask for pixie dust...but. I can help but realizing all my blessings! Were okay! :)
Such a great day at Disneyland yesterday! I got to meet hanlostleia, thegrumpyone, and Rcmom and her wonderful family! And we won our first in park rak! so great to have this community of friends! And their amazing generosity! Plus I got some amazing pics and vids for my Christmas imovie project! :)
So it's that time of year again! Awesome decorations are up, cooler weather to follow soon, and the parks less crowded! And haunted mansion opens this weekend!!! Who's excited???!! (oh and I've been on mw for a year...just noticed...lol)
Who's going to dapper day tonight? Me and the fan we thinking of going...my wife has a cute dress but I don't know if I should wear my service/dress uniform...or a suit? Suggestions or advice please :)
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 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!
