Just wanted to share this amazing story! Teen from Taft High School saved the life of a one year old with CPR at Disneyland. Kudos to this young lady for being a hero!
Super excited. Just met two fellow MWer's for the 1st time. MrStrawberryGuy and i'veGotNoStrings! Never met a MWer before. Great guys! Thanks for making me feel so comfortable even though I chased ya down! Have fun!
Question. Today the hours for DCA are extended till 9pm, but they added a World of Color show at 915. I thought if the park closes at 9pm, you must be out at 9. What time are you suppose to be out by? Thanks!
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but here is the link for the official NASA photo over Disneyland, can you see me, I am down there :-). Great experience, I will never forget. Thank you Endeavor and thank you Disneyland!
Just saw that the space shuttle will be flying over the Southland on Friday. News recommended a good place to view would be Disneyland. Does any MW's know what time. Think I may need to pay a visit on Friday just for this. Happy Wednesday!
Hope this is the right forum to ask. When I am on the Mousewait website via my Mac, I can't see any photos posted in the lounge. I can see the details/comments but no photos. I have no issues via my phone. I am bummed because I love to see all the photos while I am home too. Any help would greatly be appreciated! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
Just met the most incredible father on the Toy Story bus. Told us the story how this was his 19th trip this year with his 5 year princess. He lost his wife to brain cancer two years ago. What an amazingly strong and loving dad. Sure makes me appreciate the positive in my life. To the man on the bus you are an inspiration.
After spending a hot day at the park yesterday, made me realize what I would love to see next. Our favorite rides turned into water rides/slides. What would be your favorite? I would love to swim with Nemo or turn Pirates into a water slide. ;-)
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!
