ATTN: IDVandalskipperCM. Just got your package today. Thank you sooo much. Also thanks for the extras, the girls were so excited!! Sorry no pic but ironically we are driving to disneyland right now! Are uou currently working there? Thanks again.
hi. we're staying at PP tonight and its our first time. can anyone help with some questions? where do you walk to get to the front gates? and where is the guest parking located? any help or tips would be appreciated. we've stayed at both dl & grand hotels before.
We finally decided to go to the halloween party this friday. Never been before. My question is at what time can we get our wrist bands? We will be in the park all day but will be going back to our hotel and would like to have them before we go. we are APs so i know we can get them before 4. Thanks
please help us with hotel choices. we usually stay onsite but are going to stay off site in oct. any suggestions would be great, or anywhere you don't recommend. it doesnt have to be walking distance. just somewhere inexpensive without being 'cheap' if ya know what i mean. :) TIA
Does anyone know what the park hours are like the weekend before thanksgiving and the weekend before xmas? We would like to go for some day trips but dont really want to go if it closes at like 6. thanks.
Anyone who has worn glow with the show ears, I have a question. I tried some on and they felt weird and didnt buy them. How do they feel when you wear them? they felt like they would fall off if i tilted my head back just a bit. Im sad cause i really wanted a pair. any feedback on this? tia.
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!
