Forgot I took this on our last ride today. My mini kept asking if they changed each ride for the holidays. Guess I was wrong when I said no because even Roz gets in the holiday spirit. Way to go number 001.
Some of the details and decorations added for the Jingle Cruise. Letters to Santa, creative gifts, tress, and holiday boat names added to the departures and arrivals board. Fun updates and holiday jokes added to the classics. Not major changes but fun holiday remix. Mostly decorations to the cue, jokes, and festive jungle hats. Fun.
So close to meeting the new princesses but still feels like so far. Finally close enough to hear Olaf (I think that's right) talk. Cute animatronic it's the details that count. Hope my mini appreciates my patience.
So I am curious which MWer will get the first pic posted of the AP Event. Good luck to all that are there and still have battery. Man my phone has held out but sadly this may be my last post. Guess I need a Trent.
Not live but from this morning first thing before official opening. We got our own long lost friends moment as I have never seen The Queen, Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, and Alice all together for pictures. The queen, rabbit and hatter were having so much fun with my son and his little shoes.
#DisneyAmbassador Just ran into Megan-2013 Disney Ambassador learning about the magic of the echo spot in front of Innovations. She was so nice and talked with me for about 5 minutes. She was with a plaid learning the inside secrets. So cool would love that to be my job!
From one caboose to another. What a treat riding the grand circle tour in the Lilly Belle after getting off the caboose of Casey Journey. That's one thing off my Disney bucket list. My whole family loved it. 1st timers!
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!
