I\'m a huge Disney fan. You can call me a Disney addict. Luckily my husband shares the same addiction. My husband proposed to me in Disneyland on the Pirates of the Caribbean during the Year of a Million Dreams promotion. He actually called Disney p
Hello MouseWaiters!! It's been along time since I was able to post. New job was very consuming. My husband and I are trying to plan a trip to Disneyland for the 1st week of October. Anyone know of good hotel rates around $100 or less? I haven't been to Disneyland in almost 2yrs ( which is a sin). Please help. I desperately want to go.
Hey MWer's, I could really use your help. Im going to Disneyland in May for my Bday. Anyone know of any websites or stores where I can buy Bday merchandise? I would love bday ears or hat or t-shirt. This is my first time celebrating my bday in Disneyland so I want to do it right. Also, any suggestions of what fun things to do for bdays in the park would be helpful too. Help please.
My dear sweet MouseWait friend Cherry91 made me this bracelet and sent me some extra goodies. She has been so welcoming to me. She has helped me (and is still helping me) learn the ropes around here. Thanks Cherry91 for being a great friend and sending me all the wonderful goodies.
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!
