Reposting from a seperate thread -- After seeing posts about being upset bc people arent showing interest in their RAKs being done I really felt the need to address this: The point of a RAK is to make someone smile... Whether its one person or a million. Just bc 100 people didnt enter their name in the RAK or nobody found you at the park doesnt make it any less important. A RAK has no value... A tshirt should mean the same as a dinner at club 33 or a smile at a total stranger... Its random and kind.. No matter how many people want it, providing a total stranger with a little bit of happiness is what its all about.

Well said. You are absolutely right about making someone smile. Plus if not so many people enter in a rak, it makes it better for those that did. Thanks for the reminders. If it makes a difference in the life of one person, it is worth it. - tram1995  12.6 #9839 12:30PM

Auz and I used to do in park RAKs and announce them on MW, but we started handing out goody bags and fast passes to random kids and families at the park. Instead of announcing RAKs on here, I usually mail surprises to random mwers. - michelledork  696.2 #293 8:41PM

We participated in a locker RAK this week and it got ripped off. So no more locker RAKs for me. We did an in park RAK for a tshirt that went well. But my fave thing was we bought a bunch of glow wands and pirate patches at Walmart before going, and my kids handed them out to boys and girls waiting to watch the fireworks. The kids had fun doing it. - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 8:45PM
All great ideas!  - Dizkid  459.5 #491 8:45PM
A smile, high five, or hug is the best RAK I could ask for! It's about "high quality" human interaction, not the quantity of people who respond :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.4 #337 8:46PM
:-) - PrincessDuckie  919.5 #204 8:49PM
The glowsticks are a great idea. I do that on Australia Day (like our July 4th) fireworks in the city. - BLG  1048.9 #184 8:50PM
I totally agree! - mommyland  289.4 #1013 8:50PM
We bought some awesome Disney stuff from the store... Handed them out to kids. It made our trip and hopefully theirs. I love the glow stick idea @blue - michelledork  696.2 #293 8:51PM
Do you find it better to keep RAKs private or to share publically? What is more satisfying? - calidream1  398.0 #581 8:53PM
We handed out glow necklaces and wands the last time we went to fantasmic, just to random kids. I think RAK's are more special when people aren't expecting it. - akpoppins  263.8 #1265 8:55PM
They were cheap too. We had princess wands, necklaces, bracelets and pirate patches with earrings and beads. It was fun! - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 8:56PM
Those of us who were around when RAKs were first created by Dahula know that RAKs are definitely not what they used to be. - michelledork  696.2 #293 9:06PM
RAKS are not even what they were in February.  - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 9:11PM
Well said! - wonderlandgirl  347.5 #706 9:17PM
What's cool is seeing how the distortion of RAKs on MW has lead to an increase of true RAKs in the parks. Dahula was doing in-park RAKs long before there was a MW. We've always made sure to pack a bag of Disney treats to RAK whenever we've travelled to WDW. - Experiment818  1647.2 #106 9:18PM
A RAK is a selfless act. Once you verge from that simple definition, you're doing it wrong. - Experiment818  1647.2 #106 9:20PM
Dahulagirl RAKS everday wether she is in the parks or not. Knowing her and her heart have made mine not so icy. - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 9:21PM
yea I loved it when Dahula would just pick some random family in the park and sign them in or give their kids a bunch of toys, that was pretty neat to see, even saw Michelledork do it, she would bring in toys and hand them to kids and just move on...its not the same anymore...QUALITY CONTENT NEEDED...oh and there was that one time that 818 pulled over on the side of the freeway and gave a homeless man a pair of mickey ears and bought him a house in beverly hills...that as epic....if you want to meet people just post in the park meetups and people will come and hang out, it does not have to be find me and get something for me to meet you, I've even seen people get butthurt cause they give out in park raks then the other person does not post a huge thank you post in the lounge...if thats what your looking for than the true meaning of a RAK is not for you - Dave  13807.4 #4 9:21PM
Well said Dave. - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 9:24PM
I often get in a little conversation with a family (usually at night) who have fastpasses they won't use because they're too tired. I tell them I'll find a family who wants them. So they give them to me and I do a RAK for whoever wants to ride Space Mtn. at midnight (just an example). Their reaction is priceless and I actually get to do my job- create Disney magic :) - BaseballMickey  7888.0 #11 9:26PM
I couldn't have said it better myself! I approve of this thread! Thank you! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1191.1 #154 9:26PM
I only get mad when Kevin RAKs Auz a big handshake and good pats on the back. I get jealous. - michelledork  696.2 #293 9:26PM
Yes Dave, well said! - akpoppins  263.8 #1265 9:27PM
MDork me too! Kevin always gives Mrblue big handshakes and hugs and pats on the back and he won't even say hi to me  - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 9:30PM
I know none of you know me but it seems like a good tome to see if anyone wants to bring me to club 33...JK I just want to say that I'm newish and so appreciate all you guys do! I wish I had been here longer to know more of the true raks but seeing raks like CS's club 33 rak absolutely amazed me. There will always be those who don't have the true selfless spirit but those who do impact us all for the better! We appreciate you all with the true Disney spirit! - kcloveswalt  137.9 #2972 9:36PM
I, for one, don't do RAKS to get recognition or praise. I do them because I like too and I want too. But I do have to say this, when a RAK only gets a few entries that stings a little because I went out and bought the stuff with the intentions to give it to someone who wants it. That said, I will not stop doing RAKS because I have always been a giver. I like making people happy. I just won't take it personal if not many enter my RAKS. - DizGeek  453.6 #498 9:54PM
Daves seen it first hand. I never announced it or even mentioned what I was doing. We were walking, he turned around and goes "did you just give that kid a toy?" And I said, yea... And we kept walking. I dont do stuff for the attention or recognition, I do it because its fun and if I can make someones day, I will. - michelledork  696.2 #293 10:00PM
LOL, yea I was like..what are you doing, and the kid had a buzz lightyear shirt on and she asked if he loved buzz and he said ya and she handed him some buzz toy, the kid and mom were estatic, it was cool to watch...Dizgeek, I hear ya but dont get stung by lack of people entering, its just that 80 percent of the lounge is RAKs and people are selective on what they want cause its all about that ya know....I've even heard from people that use to be in the lounge all the time that they only go in to enter RAKs for free stuff... - Dave  13807.4 #4 10:05PM
I actually like enterimg RAKs for other people more than myself. - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 10:07PM
Really Dave? That's horrible. - Mrsblue  693.1 #295 10:07PM
Thanks guys! I love the idea of giving things out at park to random people and I will also do that!! - DizGeek  453.6 #498 10:08PM
Just spotted this thread and appreciated it :) ever since I was little my father who ha almost no money would make it a point to take me to dla all the time...he would always go to city hall or have random buttons or like cheapy lays or neckalces ad whenever he saw a child cry he would always say "cheer up you are at disneyland" and hand them a button or something and just walk away...to this day almost twenty years later my dad would give you the shirt off his back if e knew he could make your day atdisneyland more magical... Like I said I appreciate this thread :) - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #727 9:54PM

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

I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7428 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #510 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  176.1 #2347 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1182 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75569 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 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  0.0 #127402 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  6371.3 #21 8:10PM

This is an  app. Thank you @@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  297.4 #0 2:46PM
