Hi all. Had a rough day today. My 7 year old's good friend died in a plane crash on Saturday but we just found out today. He's taking it pretty hard. At this age he doesn't understand why his friend won't come back. Hes been crying a lot tonight. It's so sad. I asked him what I could do to make it better, and he said "Take me to ride Mike & Sully again". Absolutely breaks my heart because we are in WA. Any advice on how to cheer him up? I need help.

I have no advice - MrTea lost his best friend to cancer at that age. I will be praying for comfort for your son and his little friends family - Smart.tea  206.7 #1947 7:35PM
Send him down and I will take him to parks... I will sure he Sully 100 times.. - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #92 7:35PM
Oh my that is so sad! I don't have any advice and I don't think he can be cheered up right now. He needs to cry and be sad. I am thinking of your little boy and saying  - CravingDisney  150.1 #2754 7:36PM
That is sooo hard! I'm so sorry! Maybe youtube the ride video for him? - Tataandbeyond  83.9 #3935 7:37PM
That's a tough one for sure! I lost a friend when I was about that age, and I have never forgotten her. He will work through it with lots of love and understanding - TinkPen  432.7 #520 7:37PM
Oh my goodness what a tragic thing to hear. My condolences go out to your son and his friend's family. - StephiePooh  572.7 #363 7:38PM
Awww CAWA  go to the family that lost their little one! But have you put in Monsters Inc.? - MadMadamMim  68.4 #4279 7:38PM
I'm so sorry. My brother also lost his friend when he was around this age. His friend drowned. It is very difficult for them to process their grief at this age. I will be praying for all of you, and for wisdom on how to comfort your son. I'm just so sorry. - HiddenMickeys  220.1 #1760 7:38PM
Also send him here I'll take him!!! Hehehe - MadMadamMim  68.4 #4279 7:39PM
I'm so sorry. Grief is so hard, but particularly hard to see in children. Praying for the family of the boy and yours. - ally  509.0 #18 7:42PM
I'm so sorry! I have no advice to offer, but I'm sending good vibes to you and your son - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #199 7:43PM
Oh yeah. Is Monsters his fav movie? I'd like to send something to your son, it I may? - StephiePooh  572.7 #363 7:44PM
I think I have a video of the ride on my phone txt me your email and I'll send it along, the audio might suck though - Pixarprincess  544.5 #389 7:45PM
Oh my goodness! So sad. Hugs and prayers to your son. - DisneyMama  57.5 #4567 7:46PM
My heart just broke into a thousand pieces. I'm keeping everyone in my prayers  - MsNick  55.7 #4639 7:46PM
Nevermind I watched it the quality is terrible. Try YouTube or maybe someone can make a new one for you - Pixarprincess  544.5 #389 7:47PM
Will definitely be praying for you and your little one - Pixarprincess  544.5 #389 7:48PM
You will all be in my prayers. - redrockmickey  117.2 #3328 7:50PM
I'm so sorry to hear that!!! - Missshelly  698.3 #282 7:51PM
Oh geez this is just making me get into a funk. Let him cry, Let him be sad. Let him be angry too. It's ok. When he's calmed down a bit....try this. ask him his favorite story or memory of his pal. Ask him what he would like to do to help their family. Let him have his feelings. Sometimes the good ones get taken away from us way too soon. It hurts. It's gonna hurt. But that's part of the process. I am sorry that this has happened. - Butterlina  1576.2 #110 7:51PM
This is very sad news and I am so sorry but we are all here for you maybe you could pop in the monsters inc. dvd good luck and well wishes - Rob512  756.3 #257 7:51PM
Butter your so awesome!!! - MadMadamMim  68.4 #4279 7:52PM
Reading this made me cry. - disneyfreakonrampage  5.2 #18389 7:52PM
So sad to hear this, especially at such a young age..my heart goes out to you. - BigD  471.0 #472 7:54PM
I agree with Butterlina he is going to have to let it all out. Very sad he has to go thru that so young. - n.corvello  22.9 #7011 7:55PM
Omg. I have no words for this that's just horrible and so young.  - MrsDisney  34.4 #5707 7:55PM
Oh thank you all so much. I hate to admit it, but I really needed this support. The boy's Dad got out alive but it took 41 minutes to pull Jacob out. The doctors said that because the water was so cold if they would have pulled hin out within 25 minutes he may have made it. I can barely handle it, let alone be strong enough for my boys. My 5 year old was petting and kissing my 7 year olds head. So sweet. They are watching Monsters v Aliens right now. - CAWA  36.2 #5560 7:59PM
As a mommy my heart goes out to you son. My heart cries for the family who lost their boy. - Mrs.mouse  543.6 #392 8:01PM
Oh I'm so sorry. I have no words but please know that you all and his friend's family are in my prayers.  - LBChica  2529.7 #60 8:03PM
Kids are stromger and smarter than we think. Yes, you wanna shield and protect at all times, but something like this you can't. and It bites. It bites hard. argh. if he needs to act out aggresivley, so be it. If he's needing to hide for a bit, so be it. Do your best to make a safe place for him so he knows he can express his feelings. ah geeeez this is just ripping at me. Be well. - Butterlina  1576.2 #110 8:04PM
@CAWA, time will heal those wounds... Just take it day by day... I still have bad days from the lose of my boy, but each day I get stronger.. Just stay with family and help each other out... - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #92 8:11PM
I'm sorry! Your family and your son's friends family are in my prayers! - indyRocks  373.7 #619 8:15PM
Contact a local hospice they have books and advice on dealing with death and can help you talk to him, or check your local bookstore they should have books for kids that help explain what happened. I'm so sorry this happened to you and your friends family. - epperru  150.4 #2746 8:15PM
Thank you ALL. Your words are so comforting. Goofyjoe, I had no idea you lost your son. I can't even begin to imagine the hell you must be going through. Ok, I need to get off and cuddle with my little men. Tomorrow will be better. Gnight and remember to hug your babies, nieces, nephews, cousins, grandchildren extra hard tonight. - CAWA  36.2 #5560 8:16PM
aww im sorry love =(( send him hugs - ashy_mouse_leyyyy  163.9 #2546 8:18PM
So sad to read this. Maybe his school's guidance counselor can be of support in talking about death. It's a tough thing for anyone, but I can't imagine it at such a young age. - tina  1157.8 #159 8:18PM
My thoughts go out to your son and his friend's family. - MinnieJ  281.9 #1071 8:19PM
CAWA take tomorrow off spend the day with both boys (let them play hookie from school) and take them to go see Tangled and maybe even Tron! Let them know you understand and that you are there for them!! Lots of love sweetie for you and those precious boys!!! Hope to see you soon - MadMadamMim  68.4 #4279 8:19PM
Oh my I am so sorry. - PrincessCinderella  21.0 #7319 8:21PM
When my grandmother died I took my daughter to build a bear and when you put the heart in instead of having her make a wish I had her think of her favorite memory with GG. We also got a mini version to go in the casket. Just an idea it really helped my daughter - MsClaireBear  15.1 #8776 8:21PM
CAWA.......Got your message. You will be fine. He will be fine. something is telling me to have you check with your little mister and ask him if he'd like to do something special for him. Some sort of tribute. Some sort of foundation. It's just coming that way right now. Maybe he'll choose to do nothing. That's fine. He willl get through this. He will be at peace. We're all here for you. - Butterlina  1576.2 #110 8:30PM
I have no words to express my sadness for your son's loss. I know that grief is hard to deal with at any age. I hope that you find a way to help him grieve that brings healing. - VikkiMouse  182.2 #2258 8:31PM
Not sure! All I can do is keep you all in prayer! Good luck & so sad! - BeautyandTheBeast  142.7 #2883 8:33PM
I'm so sorry...is he scared? It's hard enough going through this as an adult I can just imagine for a child. Explain it as a child would understand it because it can be very confusing for him. When my mom passed away my Goddaughter was only 5 and I had to tell her that God called her and asked her for help to find medicine for breast cancer that the doctors couldn't find...she understood that once you get to Heaven you can't come back and that although we were sad because we would never see her we were all very proud of her. - MozPrincess  582.4 #357 8:35PM
Very sorry to hear. I can't imagine losing a little one at such a young age or a friend. Prayers to you and the boys family. Extra hugs and kisses during this time for your son! - brodysmommy  433.4 #518 8:36PM
I am so sorry your little guy has to experience profound grief at such a young age. Let him cry as much as he needs and allow him to express his feelings. Make sure he feels safe and supported. Try to keep his life simple and  predictable.  Have him attend whatever ritual his friend's family may have as it will help him bring some closure. If they don't have a memorial service or funeral, have your own private ceremony that acknowledges their friendship. He might regress to an earlier time in his life when he didn't have worries (ie bedwetting, tantrums).  Look into grief counseling thru the school or even grief support groups for children thru a hospital or local hospice. Eventually help him create a scrapbook of favorite memories of his friend, maybe using Monster Inc stickers? You and him will get thru this. - Polkadobo  384.7 #595 8:59PM
Im sorry to hear about the loss of a little it is alwas a tragedy my heart goes out to the father I can't imaging a greater loss and for your little guy as well but time will help just be there and listen every thing will come to you God bless and many prays for the father your little guy and you - Ferbalisous  64.5 #4371 9:39PM
When my son is sad and needs a touch of his happy place he watch YouTube of the rides, meeting of characters. It won't take the hurt away but make him happier. - Lovetherat  6.3 #15597 9:47PM
wow. I am so sorry. - ghosthost  338.0 #735 9:58PM

Poor thing! I'm so sorry! - LillyBelle  77.1 #4075 10:08PM
I am so sorry. You, your son and his friends family are in my prayers. Perhaps try the book "Where are you?" by Laura Olivieri. - chsrkat77  244.0 #1457 10:14PM
Time to talk about how we keep people alive in our memories. Maybe plan to make a donation to a special organization on his friend's behalf for his Birthday or Christmas? - autumnal1  51.2 #4814 10:17PM
Tell him that Coaster personally said hi to him and will ride it with him the next time you are down here. - Coaster  19962.4 #1 10:20PM
I am so sorry. Please know that your son, your family and the family of your son's friend will be in my prayers. - ghostmom28  63.4 #4400 10:32PM
Good morning everyone. I woke up to a barage of MW emails in my inbox. Wow, thank you all for your compassionate words. You truly are a special group. Lots of great advice which I'll go over again when I'm in the right mindset. But for now, I'm going to play hookie today as some of you suggested and cuddle with him all day. Have a wonderful day everyone. - CAWA - CAWA  36.2 #5560 6:37AM
I am so sorry, hugs to you all. - Dumbomom  308.5 #895 6:40AM
Hey, CAWA! I got you msg last night. Sorry, I didn't respond. You txt was cut off half wsy though *LoL* - StephiePooh  572.7 #363 6:55AM
I am so sorry. I also have a eight year old and he had to go through a grieving process about a year and a half ago. We tried to spend as much time together as a family. We still talk about it sometimes but it definitely makes it better just to be together. Sending prayers to WA. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #617 7:31AM
Prayers for you. - BCC  4783.2 #28 7:57AM
Cawa I am so sorry to hear about your sons loss and both of your pains. Made me cry as I was reading the messages. I am in Seattle and I too have a 7 yr old. I lost my mom when I was 9 and I never had anyone to talk to about losing my mom. Make sure that you are there for him whenever he needs an ear or a hug. I know that I didn't believe my mom was gone, even after holding her ashes at the funeral, I still believed she was alive out there somewhere. Maybe you can tell your son that his friend is there with him in spirit. Best of luck to you and your son. I'll keep you guys in my prayers. - Minnieme79  37.6 #5465 8:09AM
I'm praying for ur sons friend family and your family this is hard an my eyes watered:-( I don't know u personally but if u need anything I'm here! Even if it's a admission ticket to Disneyland for him or I can send him his favorite character toys just lmk! - litswtsmile  161.4 #2583 8:11AM
YOu can also explain to him that his friend is in a better place now, where he can't get hurt anymore. - litswtsmile  161.4 #2583 8:16AM
I'm so sorry. It's such a hard age as the understand somethings but not everything. My thoughts with you and your little boy - dennibowles  56.0 #4624 9:21AM
I'm so sorry...I'm praying for you and your little boy. - LaPetiteSirene  400.5 #577 9:27AM
This conversation is why I so love MW...such an outpouring of love and support. @CAWA I am so sorry for what your son and your family is experiencing. I lost both of my patents over the last four years and there is really little to make it better except lots of hugs and letting him grieve in whatever way he wants. Sending prayers and hugs your way - RocklinMousewife  259.6 #1286 9:27AM
Geez I hate this auto correct. Supposted to be "parents" not patents - RocklinMousewife  259.6 #1286 9:28AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.2 #322 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7404 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #509 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  175.3 #2345 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.8 #1178 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17904 3:45PM
Saturday's are less busy - DarthFairy  472.0 #467 2:18PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75250 12:12PM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127129 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  5597.8 #23 8:10PM
