Welcome to the Lounge! If you are new, introduce yourself and you will get a big MouseWait welcome.
Hey guys! I'll be heading to Animal Kingdom and Epcot with @MinnieNurse and @DisneySweetheart after work today, does anyone have photo requests for these two parks? I'll gladly post them to the Lounge for those who do!
Sorry for such a long post, but I just started typing and this is what came out...
"Once upon a time, there was a magic kingdom made of hopes and childhood fantasies. A timeless place where every land was filled with wonder. A place where everyone who entered its gates, would be given the gift of the young at heart." -Julie Andrews
57 years ago, a magical place was born. And in this marvelous kingdom, Walt Disney brought us lands of everything from Fantasy to Adventure, to the time of Frontiers in the old west to a land of Tomorrow.
"To all who come to this happy place, welcome! Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the dreams, the ideals, and the hard facts that have created America. With the hope that will be a source of joy, and inspiration, to all the world." -Walt Disney
On July 17, 1955, Walter Elias Disney gave this 30 second speech as his dedication of Disneyland.
Disneyland has been labeled "The Happiest Place on Earth" and the place "Where Dreams Come True" countless times in its history, and for myself, as well as many people I know, this is absolutely true. Disneyland is unlike anything else. I have had the privilege of watching Disneyland grow since the 1990's, which may not sound like much, but it's more than many people I know. I have been fortunate enough to see it grow from just one park and one hotel to an entire resort, and I am proud to say that Disneyland is like a second home to me.
Here's to many more years of making dreams come true, and bringing smiles to millions of Guests every year, to my fellow Cast Members who work hard to bring the magic to life, and to all of our Guests who allow us to make it happen.
Happy 57th Birthday, Disneyland!
MinnieNurse and DisneySweetheart slayin' the troll!
Hey everyone! I got approved to work Food & Wine Festival at Epcot!! I can't wait and I hope to see some of you there!
The interactive queue at Dumbo is in soft opening! The "ticket" works like a restaurant pager and vibrates when it's your turn!
Hey guys! I posted a RAK in the DL Lounge and it's totally worth entering if you haven't been to the parks since early May or won't be all year, I promise!
At no time before Novermber 30th should Test Track have a wait time. You get points just for choosing "closed" when entering the time. So please, don't be one of the people who gives it a wait time before it reopens.
Live from DTD - it's still gone. Sorry IndyandMarion
Weather update for those in the parks: everything outdoors is currently closed because of lightning in the area.
Happy 4th of July from the Magic Kingdom!
Hey everyone! I hope you all have a safe and fun Independence Day! I'll be at MK all day then working crowd control on Main Street from 5pm til 1:15am. I hope to see some of you out there! (photo from Saturday)
#NEWS: I know many of you love Main Street Electrical Parade, but I have some rather unfortunate news (at least for WDW). MSEP is scheduled to finish its current run at Magic Kingdom this fall, and will probably be returning to Disneyland Park by 2015 for DL's 60th. However, for those who prefer (and miss) SpectroMagic, I have some great news for you... With that, I caption this "Returning: Spring 2013"
Such a beautiful day here in the Magic Kingdom.
Streets of America. (yesterday)
Love this at Hollywood Studios!
