I am rather new here but I have made it to level ten and I have learned a few things along the way. My first few visits did not go well but I decided to stick it out and see if I could fit in. I am no Mouse Wait expert, but here is what I figured out to help get through the first few weeks. I hope this helps other newbies. 1: Never post a picture. Way to risky. 2: Never post a roll call. It is easy and there are several good examples listed in post, but in the stress of the moment you will choke and make a mistake. Again, way too risky for a beginner. 3: Avoid using the words "RAK", "Lanyard", "Attraction","Ride", "Planking" or "Leggings". 4: Do not attempt a Vinylmation Theater. Now, you may notice others doing these things. You may see blurry pictures of someone's dog licking their RAK or a comment like "I have attractions for seeing loose lanyards on bumpy rides". These post are ok. They are made by "OGs" that have learned the subtlies and nuisances of posting. They should not be attempted by newbies. When will you get to the point that you can try such post? If you have to ask, you are not there yet. If you do miss step along the way you may get reprimanded. Don't worry. A reprimand from an OG is like swatting a dog on the nose with a rolled up newspaper. It may startle you but it doesn't really hurt. For now, stick with "Welcome", "Good Morning", "LOL" and "enter me, please". Above all. BE POLITE. Please and thank you go along way. In time you will be posting like a pro. I hope these tips help. I know that your time and patience will be rewarded with many new friendships and countless hours of Disney Magic here on Mouse wait.

Someone's dog licking their RAK? LOL!!! No wonder you're fitting in here-the one thing you didn't mention is how far a sense of humor goes! And you have cracked me up several times .

While this is a great post for newbies, myself being a semi newbie, and it gives alot of great tips, evey person started out new and everyone deserves the opportunity to be heard, whether a person feels it's a "stupid" post or a "veteran" post. We are all one big community that share the a common love...Disneyland...So I there should be no protocol set in place, just be polite and be yourself. It does make it harder for the newbies to post something when clicks are already formed and they try hard to "fit in." I've posted and shared my love and ideas. Some post have comments, others don't. Do I care, maybe a little because I'm one of those trying to make friends on here. It's just gonna make it less fun if I have to follow guidelines . Maybe venting now, but I lov Mousewait and the people here, everyone is nice. It just makes me sad when I see groups or clicks or people outcastes because they are new or a veteran. - Aurora_2020  260.1 #1169 7:00PM
great advice & i hope i never offended anyone or said anything that may have gotten me reprimanded lol - SugarBumpkins  25.1 #5913 7:00PM
Zooter can't wait to be a junior so I can go to the prom. - OynnhoJ  97.8 #3471 7:00PM
:) thanks. I liked that. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5016.8 #18 7:06PM
Aurora there seriously are no guidelines and that is why this made me laugh so much... The remark he said about getting reprimanded is true... There are a lot of people who think things should be a certain way. This is irrelevant and the only things that matter is that the terms and conditions are followed and only Disney or MW related pictures are posted in the lounge. The rest should be posted to Flickr. That is it. All newbies are welcomed! - Sassie_Cass  161.0 #2450 7:12PM
I wish I could press the like button 20 more times than I did! Well done! Hope to see you in the park tonight  - Jayjay  417.5 #478 7:13PM
And this is why I don't post! If people are gonna laugh or be negative then what's the point? I understood the main post! I'm talking about the posts after. That's why if you read my post I said I was venting, whether it's relevant or not. That's why, as stated in my post, I said i found this post helpful. - Aurora_2020  260.1 #1169 7:25PM
Aurora did someone say something negetive to you? Sassie Cass was not saying she was laughing at your post but at CMBaloo's. - Mrsblue  692.9 #245 7:52PM
HI CMBaloo!, i remember your first post, i defended you! haha anyways I agree that once in a while we will all mess up. I remember once i commented saying "wow what a jerk", and i finally realized that it was to the wrong post, but i couldn't delete it so people kinda made fun of me, but its all good now :) Now i just try to find the humor in everything and not take things so seriously here! - Madi  204.1 #1853 7:57PM

I guess I'm kinda a newbie number wise, I wasn't as active when I joined last year cause wasn't sure and still not sure how to post pics and do RAK's. Rob512 my hubby had to help me with my first two, but I'm learning and trying to be on here more. - NingyMouse  378.4 #544 8:11AM

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 week of Monday, March 9, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Taste Pilots Grill in DCA will reopen as Smokejumpers Grill on March 13 as apart of the new-themed area, Grizzly Air Field. 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), World of Color (TBD). 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA. 

Have a great week!

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  372.4 #556 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6893 11:53PM
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  119.5 #3107 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  218.1 #1663 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  359.8 #586 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1430.3 #98 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  178.9 #2165 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1430.3 #98 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1430.3 #98 1:06PM
thank you. No worries. I just figured out how to find my old comments to see replies :)  - bks4lou  178.9 #2165 8:21PM
