Five years ago today, I got an ​approval ​email from Apple after ​MouseWait had been​ in review for over THIRTY days! I put my family in the car and headed for Disneyland hoping to figure out how to keep the wait times updated. I had no idea if the app would work, or if anyone would use it. But, by the grace of God, the Press Enterprise did a front page weekend story on MouseWait. The next morning my mom called me and said KCAL 9 and other news stations were covering the launch. I couldn't believe it. Over the next few months we ​worked hard to ​improve the app and the response from Disneyland fans was ​phenomenal. At the end of 2009​,​ I launched an experiment that I dubbed "The Lounge" which ​was received well by early MouseWaiters​. Then, something happened that I never could've imagined--people in the Lounge started to ​plan ​meetup​s​ in the Park.

Over the years I've had the privilege of meeting so many kind people from all over the world. ​To this day I am still​ amazed at the generosity and the sincerity of the amazing people in our community​ (last weekend's Birthday Bash was another great example of the wonderful people who make up this community)​. I've always loved ​​hearing about the friendships that have started through MouseWait, people who've met the love of their lives​​, and ​especially the way​ people come together for ​those in need.

Five years​, and MILLIONS of downloads​ later, I can't express how pleased I am with what the MouseWait community has become. It's a safe, welcoming, friendly, generous, supportive place for Disney fans to hang out--it has become everything that I knew it could be. Online communities ebb and flow. Usually, over time, online groups turn negative. MouseWait has shattered that mold--we are at an all time high--we have a community ​of​​​ people who live their lives with the true Disney spirit that Walt instilled into the Park back in 1955.

Thank you to everyone who plays a part in MouseWait's success. I sincerely thank you for your support from the bottom of my heart.

​Take a walk down memory lane with this video that was produced back in 2011, then post your MW memories!

This past weekend, I was training a couple of newly hired Cast Members on ins and out about being a CM in my department, but most importantly, how to embrace the history and legacy we have at Disneyland. 

After a long night on our last day of training, I like to take them over to Sleeping Beauty Castle around 1:15am, when all of the day guests have gone home and we have all of the Castle, Hub and Main Street all to ourselves. At first, its pretty weird and surreal not seeing any people around you (like you stepped into the Twlight Zone), hearing the silence and peace of the park, with only the distant background music playing of Main Street and occasionally hearing Snow White sing from her wishing well. After awhile, you get used to it and treasure those moments when you have the entire area to yourself. 

After going by and gazing at the Castle for a few minutes, I lead my group over to the front of the Partners Statue. If you look carefully at the Statue, there's one of the many memorable quotes Walt had about Disneyland. This one says, "I think most of all what I want Disneyland to be is a happy place...where parents and children can have fun, together". I love this quote because Disneyland gives everyone, not matter what age, a place to have fun, together as a whole family. 


With Sleeping Beauty Castle in the background and Walt and Mickey in front of us, you just have to stand there and admire that we, Cast Members and MWers, are very fortunate to have a place like this where people around the world come to visit, sometimes just for one day in their life or a few times a week. After explaining that to them, that warm feeling you get when you enter the park through those tunnels came to me and I was almost at a loss of words and didn't know how to explain even more about how this place is so magical and will still be a special place in all of our hearts. 

I just wanted to congratulate and thank Admin on 5 years of hard work and preseverance of creating a place like MouseWait. If I had not joined in on this site, I would not have had the chance to be apart of this special place of Disneyland. MW really helped me get my job as a Cast Member (that story is for a different time). By being a Disney fan also, MW has helped me escape to the park while my Disney withdrawls kicked in (yes, I still get them even though I work there). But most importantly, its given me the chance to meet some many different and unique people I would have never met who all have the same love of Disneyland together. Over the past 5 years, we've seen people come and go, new, but the energy of the park has truly been implemented in this app, with the help of all of the happy and positive people. Aside from my own family and my Cast Member family, I truly call MouseWait my third family, in a way we all support each other through the highs and lows. By now having the chance to teach others about Disneyland, about this special place we all hold close to our hearts, its even more fun and rewarding to realize that yes, we work at a magical place, but to credit all of you on MW that's helped continue the magic in person and online.

Hope to see you in the park soon!
