I am married to my prince living happily ever after even while raising four crazy Disneyland loving kiddos. Our family tries to visit Disneyland at least once a year to escape in the magic and fantasy of this wonderful place.
We have had great success with using ride software like ridemax (I am not affiliated in any way). And I think the biggest key is to get there EARLY, as in an hour before the gates open on a non-early entry day if you aren't eligible for early entry, especially if attractions are a priority for your family. Hope this helps!
What a fun and creative post! You pulled me out of hiding. Total lurker here...love mouse wait, especially the live pictures from the park, but am generally too shy to join in the posting and conversations!! I got the vibe of the lounge down though and love it! Our family went to disneyland three times last year, but haven't gone this year yet. We are planning an October trip and it just can't More...
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!
