This is now my third year as an annual passholder, and I'm even more hooked than I was my first year! I wish I could go to DL every week, but I live about 1 1/2 hours away so I don't get there as often as I'd like, but I thoroughly enjoy every time I

We had a great time seeing The Little Mermaid 3D at the El Capitan theater yesterday! The movie was great in 3D! Sofia the First came out and did a sing a long before the movie, and Ariel came out (briefly) after the movie. We saw a lot of the Disney stars on the walk of fame, and checked out some hand and footprints at Grauman's Chinese Theater. Fun day!! 👍
Has anyone gone (or planning on going) to The Little Mermaid 3D at the El Capitan Theatre? My mom and I are taking my girls on Sunday! It sounds like a lot of fun, with the Sofia sing-a-long and Ariel live on stage!
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 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!
