Learned don't judge a book by it's cover from beauty and the beast.
Learned that there is one place I can call home from Disneyland. ^_^
After seeing all the Christmas pictures today, I miss Disneyland soooo much. The only time I went to Disneyland in Christmas was in 2008 with my show choir. I just want to say thanks to everyone who posted today cause I was really having a bad day. Being on mousewait and seeing everyone pictures made me really happy!!! ^_^
Hi everyone! Just curious because most of you go to Disneyland much more than me, a couple months ago did anyone see this guy with a cm walking around the park? I just wondered if anyone has a pic or something. Sorry. Just wondering!!! ^_^
This might not interest everybody but in Japan for the 110th birthday of Walt Disney they are doing a Disneyland documentary, where a Japanese idol went to Disneyland and the Walt Disney museum as the host of the documentary. I'm kinda bummed because, I wished I was there at that time! Lol. I can't wait to see it!
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!
