Looks like we will be at Disney Land for Thanksgiving! We are looking at having Thanksgiving dinner at Storey Tellers unless you guys know of somewhere else that is known to be better. I am so excited. I've never seen holiday Disney Land.
I'm thinking about planning a trip to Disney Land Paris. Our family goal is to visit every park. Has anyone ever been to Disney Land Paris and can offer some tips. We're also looking at doing Disney World next April and we've never been there!! Any thought would be great. Thank you.
The other Anniversary gift I gave hubby. We have decided to go the Halloween party as villains. Would like some out of the box ideas. Thinking the 4 year old might be the queen from Narnia. Does the Haunted Mansion Bride and ghosts count as villains?Thers 5 of us, me hubby, a girl and two boys. Were staying away from alice in wonderland cause of the mad tea party. we dont want to blend in. Any ide More...
It's official! The adoption of my stepson is finalized and complete! He is all mine and I am all his officially. Next order of business- plan our celebration trip to DL. The whole family are going to were Celebration Pins sayind Celebrating Family! I,m the luckiest Mom ever! Thank. You Epyon8250 for a wonderful Mini.
Today is my five year wedding anniversary to Epyon8250. Thank you for sharing DL and MW with me. I had never been to DL until 1.5 years ago and now I've been there four times and I can't get enough. MW has become a welcomed part of our life and family. I am a very happy and lucky MW member today. Disney anniversary gift pics wouldnt load.
All I want to say is while I sit here at work in NM while it's 101 outside I would LOVE to be stuck in ANY line at DL right now. Enjoy the sights, smells, and magic around you if you are in the parks. There is still magic in a line for a ride that is broken at DL. :)
I would like everyone's thoughts. We are planning another trip to DL and I'm thinking about buying 5 to 10 things of the clearance section of the Disney store! I'm looking at dresses, dolls, things like that and doing a grab bag RAK for my kids to do with other MW kids. Good idea or not?
Hi fam I need some help that I think only you guys can give now. My 8year old loves the chimney sweeps from the parades, so much so he wants to go to school out here and be one when he gets older. So we asked a few CM's if he could meet one but one flat out said no, and another really nice CM said only if we talked to some one in entertainment. so heres hoping one of you can help please!!
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!
