**RAK!** CLOSED: Jimcricketmom is the winner!! Congratulations! I am giving a lucky winner copies of Mouse Tales and More Mouse Tales by David Koenig! If you have not read these, they are a excellent and entertaining collection of Disney history, trivia and behind the scenes stories. Anyone who comments with their favorite bit of Disney trivia will be entered. I will ship anywhere or meet you in the parks to bring these to you - whatever is most convenient for you! Good luck! (EDIT: Forgot to say when I would pick a winner! Oops... I will pick somebody randomly on Saturday 8/6 at 11 AM PST!)

My fav. Bit of Disney trivia is from the speech the train conductor gives in the lilie belle.... What is retlaw in regards to the trains? It's Walter spelled backwards! Very clever uncle retlaw....errr.... Walt!:) - kylesdisneybride  42.4 #4815 10:04AM
My fave is that if the light in Walt's apartment is out then a member of his family is in the park. I've been wanting to read these books! Thanks! - jimcricketmom  201.2 #1902 10:07AM
At least in 1994 all the popcorn in the vending carts was given to DL for free from Orville Redenbacher in exchange for their name on the carts (at least that is what I was told by a supervisor when I worked as a cm in that Dept). - Polkadobo  384.7 #544 10:10AM
I don't think I have a fave...i love them all. But Somewhere i read they use a tiny, almost naked to the eye fly that eats the larvae of normal flies which is why there aren't many flies buzzing around the park eating your food. Add me plz - Islandariel  169.3 #2336 10:14AM
Tomorrowland is close to my heart...the majority of the vegetation in this land is edible by humans...look around and see the signs indicating all the diff types of plants that may be consumed. ;-) - uscdisneyteacher  7537.5 #7 10:20AM
My favorite piece of trivia is the one I have not learned yet. - ZBrerFox  171.5 #2299 10:23AM
Omg I want those books so bad! It's a Small World opening ceremony was the last opening ceremony of an attraction Walt Disney attended. (haha forgot to add Walt's name) Thanks! - bren12  38.1 #5026 10:32AM
My fave trivia...that the morse code is walt's opening day speech!! Add me please! - MissMadamLeota  151.5 #2604 10:34AM

The best trivia in my mind is that the 2nd story of buildings on Main Street tilt away from the street. This is an optical illusion that makes the castle look bigger as you walk in, and the exit look closer as you leave (so you shop more). - BamtheRocker  21.3 #6597 11:11AM
Add mr plz!! :) My fav trivia is that there is a secret club in Disneyland! - YoungDisney  369.0 #575 11:17AM

Please enter me! My favorite bit of trivia is the one about the old man at the beginning of POTC. I never put it together before this app! Also, I have heard that DL has more cameras per capita than any other place in the US. Can't recall my source though, not sure how accurate this is. - tballzz  556.1 #340 1:33PM
Enter me please! (: - Mr.Nesbit  260.7 #1182 1:46PM
Add me please. It's from a book a read(101 things you never knew about Disneyland). In 1997 the refurbishment of Pirates of the Caribbean, some of the audio-animatronics figures came from Epcot, from the ride World of Motion.

Enter me plz, i loved Realityland by him! My fav is that walt would pick (or have someone pick) a family to be the first to enter. He/they would look for a nice family, with kids (not, say, a mum with 5 teens). - SplashMountainFTW  5.3 #16460 8:01PM
Enter me please. Don't know if it's really trivia, but I love that the cast members are trained to never walk between family members as they pass in the park. They don't want to interfere with the feeling of togetherness, even if it's subconsciously. - TonjaC  287.3 #935 8:22PM
Enter me please. My favorite trivia is that Small World was originally made for the Worlds Fair under a VERY tight deadline. Still classic to this day! - AKMouse  473.0 #421 8:59PM

My favorite piece of trivia is that every popcorn cart In Disneyland park has a character spinning a little tube of popcorn, a popcorn cart by the Matterhorn for example has the yeti, the one on main street has a clown and the one in frontierland has a cowboy. Something I found very interesting. :) add me please! - micetown  175.1 #2236 11:34PM
Hmmmmm I don't know much disney trivia. I guess it would be that when they opened the park the concrete wasn't dry enough and it was so hot that it was still soft. Add me please!! :-) - dopeyluv  111.9 #3293 11:35PM

Add me please. Favorite bit of trivia... Walt Disney was believed to have been an informant for the FBI and has a file that dates from 1936 up to his death in 1966. He supposedly received a promotion in the mid 50's that allowed him to head his own team of informants. He was commenly referred to as "The Dark Prince". I love this as I was special forces myself. Makes me feel proud that walt served our country as well. - GummyGST  31.5 #5450 8:56AM

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 week of July 6, 2015

Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the 70s. We expect it to be busier this week due to the cooler temperatures, but crowds should be manageable. You would expect summer crowds to be out of control, but they've actually been pretty light so far, even with the 60th Celebration in full swing. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 7, 2015 11:35AM



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  461.0 #438 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7070 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  130.6 #2943 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  237.8 #1429 5:04PM
I hope to be down at the end of August or first part of September. Which would you choose? - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 10:48PM
Sounds like you'll be there for Disneyland half marathon weekend  - MarshaMouse  4432.3 #23 7:41PM
thanx for the opportunity - MommyandBash  110.2 #3329 6:18PM
