What is the craziest/ scariest ride experience you have had at Disneyland or DCA? mine was raising my hands up on the second drop of Splash Mountain, (when you go below the bear) Now I wasn't expecting any airtime, but I thought wrong..hehe.. just before coming back up from the drop, I got some major air time. It was pretty scary especially since it was dark. So what's the craziest/ scariest ride More...
So this August, I will be going to Disneyland, from Aug 20-24. So do you guys think the fastpass lines or hopefully the line for RSR, will die down? also, would it be better to head straight to RSR during magic mornings, or just wait for Nightime for better weather. I'm not to sure about fastpass, I hear they go by quick.
You may of heard about it, but for the people who haven't heard of it yet. Bob Iger (CEO of Walt Disney Imagineering) recently announced plans for Marvel based Attracions coming to Disney parks Specifically an Avengers ride in headed towards Disney parks. Along with that Disney also announced plans for having Marvel characters at Disney parks also in the near future. Now there are tons of sources More...
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!
