In park RAK: Come find an Attraction Readmission Pass, good for 6 guests on your choice of attraction (excluding Matterhorn).The kiddos chose to hide it in a special mailbox facing the Frontierland entrance! They're excited for you to find it so let us know when you do! Ready, set, GO!
Questions! Questions! So, just wondering, for those of you who attended the Candlelight Procession(s), (or may know any info) - are there ASL interpreters there as well?! Such a beautiful accompaniment but also wondering if this accommodation is already apart of the ceremony/performance or is it something that needs to be requested?! Thanks for any info! :)
Ohmy...Forever21 just had to add another cute Disney item! New Monsters Inc sweater is adorable! Yay for cute, adult sized items!
In honor of 'Deaf Awareness Week', we taught Mickey how to sign his name! Take some time to learn a few words/phrases in ASL - a beautiful language of an incredible culture! Happy 'Deaf Awareness Week' friends!
Found some more cute shirts, esp to workout in! (Calling all Dland marathon runners!) This lady has some other cute shirts on her Etsy shop; I fell in love with her mini bio - Disnerd, daughter has autism, runner & creative/cute shirts! (Now wondering if she's on MW!)
Check out her shop:
Thought this was a super cute shirt for working out, etc! Some of you may enjoy it, esp those training for the Dland Marathon - way to go!
(Not entirely Disney/Dland related but über cute w/ some Disney-esque flair!)

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!
