A few snapshots from around this time yesterday, at the one and only Club 33. So, I haven't posted in awhile but I wanted to share this with my MW family. I had the most amazing time with the best company - Sonja, Bullseye, MadameLeota, deltachiq, WillieRose, justcallmeKP and her mother, dining there. If it weren't for MW, I wouldn't have ever met this fun, caring, hilarious group of people. We sn More...
Just an fyi, the structure is closed and they're directing traffic to the overflow DTD parking. The turnstiles are up so people can drive straight through but no one is doing so, causing MAJOR traffic on Disneyland Drive. Park at Toy Story and save yourself 30 minutes!
👀🎶 When the crypt goes creak and the tombstones quake, spooks come out for a swinging wake. Happy haunts materialize and begin to vocalize. Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialiiiize.. 🎶🙈
This is the only way I know how to end a 12+ hour day at the parks in this unbearable heat wave: Enjoy my chocolate chip hot fudge sundae with mocha almond fudge and cookie dough ice cream #dessert (from #GibsonGirl) on the MW porch, plus good company 🍪🍫🍦😋
It was good to be back home after a few weeks. Closing out the park never gets old.. I haven't been able to do this since New Year's! However tonight I was able to with some amazing people 😃🏰✨ s/o to vfxgenie for letting us be artsy with your camera!
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!
