When I went with Steve and Wanda, only Steve at the all-you-can-eat BBQ, while Wanda and I waited to eat the dessert only. They didn't make us pay, but they did keep a watchful eye on us - we had constant service as they kept coming by every 3 minutes to make sure we're okay!
It's a Shirley Temple doll... one of the CMs was telling me the story of it - there's some history behind that actual doll, but I forgot because I was too excited about what Steve and I were going to do when we went 8 times in a row with just us two during the Frankenweenie preview.
I think this is how you do it. Keep the leash as a back up... but hold your child's hand to keep him with you. At least they made it a backpack and not just a straight leash to harness. Even the best parents might have that split second where the kid might wander off without warning - and they'd wish they had that leash. Personally, I don't like it, especially when it's use as the primary source o More...
I agree with Genie. The Saturday crowds tend to be lower because of the ticket buyers, and Premium APs are there - everyone else is blocked out. But that's just an educated guess because there could be a random day where it's just so crowded, or less crowded. Summers can be unpredictable with crowds. But for the most part Saturdays tend to be less.
About 17 years ago, I didn't have a pass. It was my cousin's 10th birthday, and we were going to Disneyland. I wanted to sleep early, but my excitement for Disneyland was just too great. I ended up watching "The Day The Earth Stood Still" (1951). The next day, I ended up going to Disneyland and spent a lot of time at the Swiss Family Robinson Tree. I was working off of maybe 3 hours of sleep. It w More...
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!
