? for the MW CM's - do you rotate jobs around the park or stay in one place? If rotate - how often? Who assigns everyones place? Lastly, do plaids have seniority? Thanks. Just curious. ;)

Attractions are assigned to one land, anyone else I believe you are not land locked - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1765 12:47PM
For stores, we mostly stay in the same "land" or side of the park. Casting assigns your place. For me, I'm land-locked in Adventure/Frontier for 90 days (which is almost up). Then technically after my land-lock, scheduling can put me in any store in the park. For attractions, its depends on your land, but mostly you stay in your land. And yes, plaids do have seniority. - BaseballMickey  7890.3 #11 12:49PM
Do you own your custumes or rent them? And do you have to share them with other people? That's what I've wondered. Do you enjoy working different lands or is it better to stay in one? - JediTrance  71.6 #4211 12:53PM
Thanks! Do plaids get people on rides faster or do they just tag along? Also how much seniority does Maynard have? He is hilarious! - mcarthy6  426.5 #535 12:55PM
@BBM how do you become a plaid? - MsNick  55.7 #4669 12:56PM
For attractions you stay in your "land" but in DCA there are only 2 lands among the CMs which is paradise pier and Hollywood you get to learn 3 attraction or more but only work 3 at a time and ofcourse guest controle like WOC or electronica. You rent your costume u can have 3 out at a time and u can return them for a new one anytime hope this helps :) - EvyJoBonCM  44.9 #5120 12:57PM
To become a plaid, you have to be in Guest Relations - BaseballMickey  7890.3 #11 12:59PM
You just apply to become one and you have seniority among other CMs but nt within the plaids so the newer plaids don't have the same seniority as older ones because anytime you transfer from a land or learn a new ride or transfer parks or jobs your seniority starts at 0 again my friend just became a plaid :) - EvyJoBonCM  44.9 #5120 1:00PM
Wow interesting! - MsNick  55.7 #4669 1:22PM
Thanks for sharing! - Knik  456.6 #496 1:28PM
The plaids have no authority when in an attraction. The atraction operators are trained in the SOP of the attraction and the plaids are great at leaving that to the operators. They will usually let you know they are there and why and then the ride ops take over. I am not sure how it works with stores but I am sure that the store cast members have authority in the stores. - JungleBum  1017.0 #192 1:28PM
CMs (the ones that have been there awhile) are going to be a little quite on the behind the scenes type questions. It is not that we are trying to be snobby or unhelpful but part of the magic is mainatining the illusions. Plus, as I am sure the new CMs remember from their recent training, a CM is a CM when they are at DLR, on MW or wherever. I we love to be involved with mousewait I hope you all understand. - JungleBum  1017.0 #192 1:31PM
Maynard has been there 17 years. Becuase he has been there so long he will get a higher priority when it comes to scheduling. However, he is not a lead or manager so he has no "seniority" over other cast memebers. He is in my dept. (and age bracket) so he and I spend time together back stage. I worked with him twice this week on the parade route. I enjoy talking with him backstage. - JungleBum  1017.0 #192 1:36PM
So interesting! Do guests with plaids get anything special or no? - mcarthy6  426.5 #535 2:29PM
they get escorted by a plaid. If they are on a tour, the get cool info. If they are a celeb. they may get taken into the attraction through an alternate entrance. It really depends on the reason they are with someone from Guest services. - JungleBum  1017.0 #192 2:31PM
Interesting info!! How much does it cost to be escorted by a plaid? - Natalie77  4.3 #22566 2:40PM
I think between 300-400 dollars an hour Someone said before - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 2:42PM
So if I "rented" a Plaid for the day as a regular Joe, would they get you on attractions like the celebs, or is that a celeb only perk? - CaliCanuck  534.4 #409 2:56PM
Anyone can get a plaid and the perks that come with it if you pay for it - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 2:59PM
Is getting on attractions a perk? - CaliCanuck  534.4 #409 3:00PM
Just don't try to bring your own plaid with you to the park. Tried that once, didn't end well. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #234 3:07PM
@ONM, sounds like there's a story to tell with that comment! - weaver941  403.9 #572 3:10PM
Lol! - mcarthy6  426.5 #535 3:11PM
Very Interesting info...thanks for asking the question - babebahn  207.3 #1954 3:12PM
All I will say is that it was all Shang and Butters fault. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #234 3:13PM
So I read that if you apply and get turned down, you can't apply again for 6 months. Is it difficult to get a job there? - DisneyGirl72  19.8 #7604 3:14PM
ONM is right we took our own plaid to the Hearthstone and got the stink eye from the waitress. - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 3:14PM
Well anything involving Shangz & Butter turns into shananigans! - weaver941  403.9 #572 3:16PM
Awesome insights on your jobs, CMs!! . Thanks for sharing!! - Mouse92im  256.0 #1334 3:21PM
Lol! We walk in to Heartstone escorted by our Plaid aka Butter. We order drinks and sit down. Waitress brings drinks and eyeballs us. Later comes and asks me for my CM ID. Me" i am not a CM" Waitress" oh" walks away. Comes back looks at Butter and says " SHOULD YOU BE DRINKING?" Butter says "why not? " Waitress says " YOU are a plaid" butter says Idk what you are talking about? Waitress leaves Butter takes plaid vest off. It was so FUNNY. - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 3:22PM
This is an awesome thread. Some really interesting stuff! - dough  128.2 #3126 3:26PM
LOL this is a awesome thread!! - Katrayher  781.0 #250 3:27PM
OMG! Thanks for sharing the story @mrsblue! I can totally see Butter doing that! Shenanigans! Gotta luuurve it! - weaver941  403.9 #572 3:29PM
I was on my lunch break n was eating in the gch cm cafeteria and Maynard walked in!! I was like YES!! But didn't wanna bother him lol - CMWalker  341.4 #725 3:33PM
So I can by a plaid for a day and skip the lines? - Hidden-mickey  16.4 #8426 3:34PM
Haha This is a great thread!!  - disneygirl19  122.3 #3229 3:35PM
Yes! Keep on adding info! I love behind the scene stuff! :) - Sbubbles  159.8 #2614 3:38PM
CM's - is the best part of your job making little kids smile? It's got to be so fun. DL truly is so magical. When my oldest was little, we were at Goofy's Kitchen. She saw the Beast coming & bolted under tge table & cut her knee. The manager came over mortified. When he could tell I was not just there to litigate DL through my kids injury - he & security really lightened up. I thanked them all. A nurse gave her a band aid, kissed her knee, & said Mickey said the bandaid was from him. My daughters eyes lit up like a Christmas tree & then Pluto,Chip, & Dale hugged her. She smiled for hours. The manager offered to pay for tge meal & I said it was ok - my daughter was happy. Well, they asked who her favorite character was & we said Pooh. Guess what happened next? They found our room at the DL Hotel, and Winnie the Pooh knocked on the door & visited our whole family in tge room for 15 minutes. As they were leaving, the man with them said Mickey wants you to have these & they gave us ALL the Pooh friends stuffed animals! My daughter is over 18 now - but guess where all those stuffed animals are - still on her bed. :). Tell me Disney employees aren't the best!!! M6 - mcarthy6  426.5 #535 3:42PM
I plead the 5th on the whole plaid situation.  - bluefairy  643.8 #323 3:44PM

It must be fun being a Disney character too! - mcarthy6  426.5 #535 4:06PM

Wow @mcarthy6! Great story! The CMs are the best! Thank you to all the CMs who make magic daily! And @sbubbles I am with you, I love the behind the scenes stuff too! Great thread, very informative. - Nesabell  157.7 #2647 4:24PM
Good to know! - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5210 4:38PM
Actually I called about reserving a plaid (something we are considering this summer) and if you get the VIP tour and pick the Premium option, they WILL get you on FP attractions (and a couple extra) ahead of everyone. Basically you have a FP with you that doesn't need to wait for a return time. that being said, you have to shell out $300/hr w/ a 6 hr minimum - CaliCanuck  534.4 #409 4:42PM
Cali, your doing this in October with your Canadian friend right?? ( wink wink) - Taylorta09  65.9 #4363 5:42PM
On one of those netflix documentaries, I saw this lady talking about how she remembered having a plaid at WDW as a kid and how glad she was that they still had VIP service because it was the only way for her. I almost threw something at the tv.  - bluefairy  643.8 #323 2:46AM

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 May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. 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 May 9, 2016 5:42PM



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 #325 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7433 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #511 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  176.2 #2344 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1184 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75645 12:12PM
Have Saturdays been less busy then Tuesdays or Wednesdays recently? - TiDoubleGuhErr  0.3 #88306 12:07AM

Yes, 1 question every 24 hrs was difficult to stick with.  - DisneyMom13  312.1 #869 6:28PM
Oh 😂😂 just realized that post was 2+ years old😂😂 well people are still taking turns very slowly. Maybe it's the app, not the players.  - DisneyMom13  312.1 #869 6:34PM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

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 the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. 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. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105863 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  6439.5 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127504 10:15AM
That just means it's time to start planning! 😀 - AngiMouse  104.9 #3566 1:02PM
Ours is blank too with no plans anytime soon. That's why I come to ☺️☺️☺️ - DisneyMom13  312.1 #869 7:30PM
