I'm a single parent with two amazing daughters and we're very close. We have significant health issues & find the parks therapeutic. We love crafting & have two etsy stores, www.etsy.com/shop/fairytalefaire & www.etsy.com/shop/fairytalewoods

#DapperDay Mark Twain... My favorite part of Dapper Day! It was easy to envision days gone by with so many wearing vintage clothing. A couple got engaged at the front of the boat as we took off. It was amazing to look at the dock and feel like you went back in time as dapper passengers waved and came aboard.
"Better use it carefully or it could change your life." "For example..yes..one day I said it to me girl, and now me girls me wife....oh, and lovely thing she is too..." "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"

Disneyland Band and TBT. Seeing the video baseballmickeycm posted about the DL band, reminded me of this picture I took about a year ago. The band was walking toward the castle and I took a few photos. This was my favorite.
Not sure I'm tech savvy enough to put this on. It's a video of Lillian Disney talking with Diane and a granddaughter, answering questions from a CM regarding epcot. I really like that they emphasize how important the CMs are to the success of Disney. I saw this on Disneyland Guru's blog and copied it from there. Just hoping I did it right. Lol...
This is MrMOMzers wonderful picture with a little magic added! We've been beta testing the MouseWait Advanced Composer for awhile now. This allows approved MWers to create their own "column" in the Lounge with expanded posts, pics, and videos inside the post. We are ready to open this feature up to more people who are intersted in having their own MouseWait Column in the Lounge. Your posts could be featured on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ and seen by our 100,000+ strong social media audience!
This feature is best used for instructional posts, history posts (like Duchess_SMK's column), and for reporting news (i.e. BaseballMickey_CM's posts). You could also do this to create a post describing your recent visit to the Parks with multiple pictures, videos, and more--think of it like an article that would appear in a magazine. The Advanced Composer only works on the web version. GO HERE TO APPLY and watch your email for more info (make sure you're email client is not blocking our emails or sending them to Spam--for some reason icloud.com, me.com, and mac.com will not allow our messages to come through.)
Thank you to everyone who strives to add quality content to the Lounge! Thanks again to MrMOMzers for the amazing picture!
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!
