It's been one year since I was at Disneyland with a couple of friends and got to meet some MWers for the first time. We had such fun! We still talk about it. Late night trips on Pirates, running for the sweeper train, going on Radiator Springs... Such a great time with Toph, Brandon, Michelle, Dave, Carmen, Tom, and everyone else we got to meet. Thank you so much Toph for organising everything! I More...
Just tried to order some more of the Disney Animator Collection dolls from the Disney store online. One of the ones I need is Tiana. She is sold out 😞 so gutted! Does anyone know if she is still available in the parks? Or would she be sold out everywhere?
Hey guys. Question about WOC. I will probably get to DCA after 5 on Saturday. Do you think there will be fast passes still available for WOC? Or do they run out much earlier in the day? It's been a year since I have been so wasn't sure.
Just a question about WOC Glow With The Show... What's the difference between the AP Glow With The Show event that everyone seems to want tickets too and just buying the new ears and going to WOC? I have been looking though everyone's post but just can't seem to see the difference.
One week today until we arrive from NZ! Very excited!!
Hi 😃 will be going to DL in July for my birthday trip. But my actual birthday is in May. Will I still be able to get a birthday button from City Hall even though it's not my actual birthday? Only 75 days until we arrive! Very excited
Today is Friday which means it's my last day of work. Tomorrow I get on a plane for 12 hours and fly to Disneyland! Finally the time has arrived! We planned this trip almost a year ago. Can't wait! It will probably be the longest day ever at work.
Hey MW. Question for you. If I saw the fireworks at DL at 930pm and had fast passes for WOC at 1015pm on the same night.. Would I make it over to WOC in time if I watched the Fireworks from Main Street?
Look what just arrived in the mail! My RAK maps have finished their world tour and made it to me. They have come from Disneyland, to Rob512 to Sammipooh in Aussie and now they have arrived in Auckland New Zealand. Thank you so much Sammipooh and Rob. It's been a rough week with the earthquake so it's so nice to have a little Disney magic arrive. Thanks again :)
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!
