SAVE THIS DATE! ***UPDATE: This hotel rate is SOLD OUT PLEASE DON'T EMAIL SHANGZ about it! You can still come to the birthday party though! We will be celebrating MouseWait's Second Birthday on October 23! Shangz has already secured a crazy rate at the Grand Californian for only $189 per night! Join us as we take over the Grand and have a blast. If you've never stayed at the GCH, this is your chance - there is nothing like it - you are footsteps away from the park, the grounds are immaculate, the rooms have that "clean" smell to them, and staying with a big group of MouseWaiters is a blast - just ask everyone who stayed at the Disneyland Hotel for the Reunion!

Wow! That's an amazing deal! If we didn't live down the street I'd be there in a heartbeat! Maybe I can create a flash flood in our apt that weekend... Hmmmm - bellapistola  158.4 #2589 11:11PM
Wow, excellent rate. Good job, Shangz. - JediStitch  429.7 #511 11:12PM
Ahhhhh! What a deal!! And a chance to meet some MWers! Hmmmm... - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 11:13PM
Hopefully we'll be there and be able to take advantage of this deal! - SoloSiyoNqoba  600.4 #340 11:14PM
That's perfect! I was planning my mickeys trick or treat party that same week. - Briana  241.0 #1467 11:15PM

I want to do this... 1. Is there a deadline to book? 2. If we fly in a day or two early and leave a day or two later, can we get that rate the whole 4-5 days? 3. I love MW. - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 11:19PM

@tandally we can celebrate our anniversaries together lol mine is the 22nd - Tinky76  318.8 #809 11:37PM
My oldest son's b-day is Oct 20th so I'm going to try REALLY hard to make it for this! - iDreamAboutDumbo  331.6 #742 11:37PM
Haha Tinky76 our real anniversary is the 22nd, but my mother-in-laws bday is that day and she made such a big stink about it that we celebrate it on the 23rd  she's a little nutty  - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 11:40PM
Woohoo!!!! Way to go Johnny!!! ....we will make a large effort to actually make it this year - AuzRoxUrSox  975.3 #194 11:40PM
TandAlly my oldest son was born on my baby sister's 5the bday and my step mom threw a fit, didn't come to the hospital, and still 12 yrs later is bent out of shape about it. Like I had any control!!! So we always celebrate my son's on 4th of July and my sister's on the 5th(the real day) - Mrsblue  693.1 #286 11:45PM
Isn't it awful mrsblue?! How selfish can people be?! To top it all off, my husbands mom never did anything for his birthday his whole life. Never had a party, no birthday card, even now she won't even pick up the phone and call him. But we can't get married on her birthday, no way! - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 11:49PM
Wow, what a great rate!!! I'm so there. - WhatHappensInDisneyland  2201.9 #70 11:53PM
Lol! I asked her once what did you want me to do? She said you could have held out 6 more hours! Srsly! The kid weighed 9lbs he didn't fit anymore. Lol - Mrsblue  693.1 #286 11:55PM
Ahhhhh!  what an awful person!!! There's no keepin' in a baby that doesn't want to be there! Seriously!! About ten years ago my MIL asked my hubby (then boyfriend) if he wanted to go to the beach with her and his sis. He declined, didn't want to take the time off work. Turned out what she meant by "beach" was "Hawaii"  - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 11:58PM
My stepmonster and your MIL should hang out. Lol - Mrsblue  693.1 #286 11:59PM
What siZe is the room, I mean is that one bed? I might try and bring a friend and split the cost! Would be sooo fun to party all night and not have to drive home! - Zipitydoodahdad  270.0 #1164 12:00AM
how funny we have the same anniversary we definitely gotta meet up n have a drink ;-) @tandally - Tinky76  318.8 #809 12:00AM
ZDD- i think they might sleep 5 like the DL hotel and Paradise pier rooms. But let me verify with shangz and i will txt you tomorrow. - Mrsblue  693.1 #286 12:01AM
Count us in!!!!!! - litswtsmile  161.4 #2547 12:02AM
Thank you mrs blue!!!! - Zipitydoodahdad  270.0 #1164 12:02AM

Maybe this time i can go since I couldn't go for the reunion. Would love to meet some MWers - cyniminnie  48.3 #109 12:03AM
i soo agree with you zdd on party all nite n not drive ;-) - Tinky76  318.8 #809 12:05AM
Is the 189.00 only good for only that night the 23rd??? - disneyland4me  250.4 #1345 12:06AM
I only live 15 minutes away, but this just gives me an excuse to stay the night there! - shewastomorrow  55.9 #4551 12:07AM
Wow, 189 for the Grand on a Sunday sounds like a deal! If you could stack that price with AAA or Military/Gov discount, That would be..Grand *pun intended* - CptKirk  766.3 #245 12:07AM
I am not sure as soon as Shangz has all the details ironed out he will post. Any questions can be emailed to him at the email above. - Mrsblue  693.1 #286 12:08AM
We are on for drinks, Tinky!! As soon as I convince my hubby! We were already planning on going in Dec, but I think I can bump it up six weeks :) SO excited!!! - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 12:12AM

Oh man, it is on! Had way too much fun at the DL Hotel. This time I'm utilizing the pool! - LisaKL  748.4 #255 12:46AM
That sounds like a lot of fun! I would love to stay at the Grand Californian. I only live like 20 mins from DL though. Do any of you think its stupid to stay there if you live so close, at least for the experience? - DarthMickey  64.1 #4313 12:54AM
what do you think lisackle? - toph  2418.2 #60 12:58AM
Do we HAVE to stay at the hotel. I'm only 20 minutes away. - ericalynn  214.3 #1816 1:01AM
We live about 20 min. from the park and stay at the Grand every once in awhile. That rate is excellent for the Grand! - MimiMouse  1049.0 #174 1:01AM
No. You don't HAVE to lol - Mrsblue  693.1 #286 1:01AM

Wherever it is, we need a microphone! Great rate... might just book even tho I live close by. - Mimmy  1442.3 #119 1:08AM

If we upgrade to AP when we come in June, we will be there too. Doubt we'll stay at the grand since we live 40 minutes away, but that's the weekend before my youngest birthday! - Tweedle_Deedee  228.2 #1628 6:38AM

I doubt hubby will want to go... $189 for one night is still a lot for us plus we are going to WDW in feb... Anyone want to let me crash in their room?  - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2595 7:45AM

Why does it have to be called birthday? Why cant it be called anniversary? We dont celebrate birthdays. So we wont be able to go. But if you called it anniversary we would come! - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #298 12:52PM
Hope I can make it - BeagleBoy12  167.3 #2452 12:53PM
ImAlwaysCrazy it's called a Birthday because it's when it officially became an app live in The Apple Store! - WickedWench  579.6 #350 12:57PM

But still!! Since its birthday we wont come. Even disney calls it anniversary. I was kinda upset when everyone was calling it disneylands "birthday" when disney called it anniversary. It could still be called MW anniversary lol! For our sake if even a few called it anniversary we would come lol. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #298 3:59PM
If you don't have a reservation @ the GCH; are we still able to go to reunion get together? - MWer_Lizzie  113.6 #3362 4:05PM
@shangz... sorry im still learning but what does hotel list closed mean? - pintsize  290.1 #972 4:05PM
@lizzie. Yes you can still go to the reunion. @pintsize. It means they have the max amount of rooms sold and the rooms are now sold out. So the list is now closed. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #298 4:15PM
And still if even one person calls it anniversary i will justify going!! lol - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #298 4:16PM
Call it what ya want imAlwaysCrazy... It's really just an excuse to hang out with our MW family in a fun, party-like setting!! ;) - JenAnneWho  300.7 #911 4:31PM
@imalwayscrazy... so you're going to the anniversary?! Lol - pintsize  290.1 #972 4:35PM
Lol thanks pintsize! I will love to party with you all!!! Party time!!! Woo hoo!!! Lol - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #298 4:38PM
Btw if you were not able to make it to the reunion. It was amazingly epic and so much fun! MWers are such fun to hang with! - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #298 4:40PM
Birthday or anniversary...who cares! It's a meetup. If you need to call it something else to justify it then do so but don't make everyone else call it what you want just so you can justify going. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MW! - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 4:40PM

Calling a lamp a tv won't turn it in to one. The same with calling a Birthday an Anniversary. When you are dealing with stuff like that going for the loophole is a sketchy issue. It is still a birthday because Admin says so  - Dahulagirl  1055.6 #173 5:21PM
Hey IAmAlwaysCrazy! Can't wait to see you at the MW anniversary! :) - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 7:08PM

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

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. 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 Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM



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  612.6 #332 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7243 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #500 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  171.1 #2390 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  249.4 #1357 5:04PM
