I just got an awesome idea!! I don't really get many Christmas presents anymore and I don't really give to many either. How much fun would it be to do a Mouse Wait Gift Exchange??? I could be in charge of matching up everyone with the person that they are giving a gift to. Everyone would get a gift for someone and get a gift from someone else! I'm sure the idea needs tweaking but I'm open for suggestions and we have plenty of time. We could either set up a time where we could all meet in the park and exchange gifts or we could send them through the mail. Or both for those that can't make it to the park. I'm loving this idea! Does anyone else like it? Are you going to be part of this? Has it been done before? Please give me your input and constructive criticism! Let's get a ton of people in on it!! -Jordan

I think this has the potential to be disastrous because what happens when someone flakes? I have been in many groups that have done this and there are always a handful of ppl who flake leaving ppl empty handed.  - Dahulagirl  1054.9 #147 3:33PM
I think this will happen. - mozbaby  132.2 #2879 4:03PM
I'd like to participate. I've also done online exchanges. You need a sign-up by date, mail by date, and money amount. When people sign up they can tell a little about themselves so it's easier to shop for. - MXPrincess399  678.5 #246 9:32AM
I would definately participate. Only concern is a thread a while back in which a lot of people (way more than I would have expected) stated that they never received RAKs. Same thing could occur with this, however I would be willing to donate an extra "gift" to deal with the people that don't come through. - msdizmaui  632.6 #271 4:07PM
I think there should be a minimum and maximum amount as some people would be over generous and spend a lot and others get the minimum. Could make some feel odd if some get tickets or hotel stays and someone else gets a pin. Big difference there. - LilSterner  4732.0 #19 4:10PM
thinkthinkthink and me are totally in !! keep us posted so when know the when and where ;-) - Tinky76  318.8 #724 3:34PM
I'm in.... - sweetnerdiheartmickey  252.2 #1225 6:51AM
Sounds like fun! I've done a gift exchange through mail before and it went smoothly. There has to be someone organizing it (matching names up, getting addresses etc.), and also a few people willing to send extra gifts in the event of the occasional flakers. I would be more than willing to help out if need be =] - PartyMousterAIR  132.4 #2875 9:27AM
I would participate. My hubby does it for his online group, and really enjoys it. - OutNumberedMom  800.7 #200 9:28AM
This sounds great I'm all for it. I'm sure you'd have to run it by admin and maybe have one person in charge of organizing the names and assigning people to each other. I think with some good organization this can happen! - Jillian  767.1 #210 9:31AM
Love this idea! I'd participate for sure. - JessicaRabbit33  669.3 #251 9:38AM
"What a splendid idea! This Christmas sounds fun! I fully endorse it, let's try it at once!" LOL count me in!! - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1009.0 #158 9:46AM
I'm so excited for all of the feedback! Keep it coming! -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 12:16PM
I would participate! - MinnieJ  281.9 #943 12:22PM
I would love to participate!!! - Pixieliz  310.9 #758 12:24PM
I wanna do it too! U could call it Secret Sandy Clause - princessVanessa  384.3 #524 12:26PM
I'm in. We can do like a price range of idk 15$-25$ gift. Or if people want lower like 10-15$ or whatever. Maybe do a mini survey about themselves to help think of something to get. - mozbaby  132.2 #2879 12:29PM
Oh my gosh I love this idea!!!! I'm so in! It could almost be like a secret Santa thing! - Timechaser_cm  265.3 #1103 12:35PM
I'm sure a ton of people on here will participate (including myself) it's a great idea so I think you should start it. You should have a list of questions each person has to answer so the giver has an idea of what the person likes because no one wants to end up with something they don't like :) - Tink  111.3 #3243 12:35PM
Disney related questions would be better ha! - Tink  111.3 #3243 12:36PM
@PartyMousterAIR, organizing this whole thing won't be a problem. My girlfriend( Aliceinwondergrl), SammyyBabyy and Phillylovescake and I will take charge of that. We will make sure everything is organized.       @Mozbaby, I like the idea of a bottom limit of $10 per gift but I dont think there should be a top limit. I think people should be able to give priceless gifts, hotel stays, Disneyland passes and things like that. @Tink, I kind of like the idea of a survey about the person that you are giving a gift too but I also like the mystery of not knowing. And, that creates a lot of future possibilities for RAK's. -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 1:13PM
I really like this idea. and tonyjord I will help organize! we can have people send us small wishlists or something for ideas of things that they like and then give it to the person who gets them along with an address. And we can set up a day where we can all meet up and meet each other!! :) - sammyybabyy  139.7 #2764 1:23PM
Great idea!! - dvcfam4  113.2 #3206 1:26PM
I'm thinking that everyone that signs up has to either be able to meet in the park on a specific day or ship a gift out. Everyone must be able to afford at least a $10 gift. I'm thinking we can start it on November 1st and end it on the last day of November. Does anyone else want to participate or have suggestions? -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 1:57PM
Cool idea, I'm in! - JenInWonderland  1025.8 #155 2:48PM
I'm in! If you need help organizing it just let me know! - soulrenee  210.2 #1768 2:52PM
this is a really cool idea :D I just hope that everyone who wants to participate, acutally participates -_- there's always that one person who doesn't recieve anything :| In anycase, count me in! :D - SkellyMouse  501.4 #371 2:52PM
SkellyMouseCM, I think what I'm going to do is ask a few people if they will be willing and able to send gifts to an extra person in the case that we have flakers and or lost packages. I want this to be fun for everyone so I'll do all that I can to make it work best. -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 3:08PM
I'd love to participate! This is a great idea :) - nicoledenise  87.8 #3592 3:11PM
Yay!!! It sounds great!!! I think I speak for both my husband & I when I say count us in!!! Ready to help if u need anything!!! - Disneymomof4  29.7 #5406 3:17PM
I would be in it too but I'm international. I will be at the parks from nov 25 till dec 7 though so might be able to join in a meetup. - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  454.5 #421 3:22PM
@tonyjord3 very cool!  - SkellyMouse  501.4 #371 3:25PM
COUNT ME IN!!!!! I'm simple to buy for! Disney and lion king and stitch! Oh and jack sparrow - Disney-PINcess  251.9 #1228 3:25PM
Ooo, I'd totally be down for that! ^_^ - EpicMoni  254.8 #1203 3:27PM
Cmon DahulGirl. You're the inventor of the RAK. You of all people should have faith in the humanity of Mouse Waiters. My plan to take care of the flakers is to have a group of people that are willing to have a secone gift on hand. From the feedback so far, it seems to me that at least a few people will be willing to do that. -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 3:54PM
I'm with dahula. With this sort of thing, I think it's best done in person. In the mail, there should be a MUCH smaller amount, and there should be a limit or the items should be comparable. This is not a RAK, it's a swap, and I think we should avoid butthurtness if we can. - bluefairy  643.3 #263 4:09PM
Also with doing it in person, you can have that group with the extra gifts to cover any flakes (for lack of a better term) and it not be awkward. It's kinda like having an extra white elephant gift for the few extra people who show up without RSVPing. You can't do that over the mail cuz someone might not want to mention that they didn't get anything or you have the opposite end of the spectrum with MAJOR butthurtness - cesium55  531.6 #341 12:33AM
@sammyybabyy Hi :) - PhillyLovesCake  169.2 #2293 4:01PM
I think this will happen. - mozbaby  132.2 #2879 4:03PM
What about a white elephant?!? That way no one gets left out of not having a gift!! - mozbaby  132.2 #2879 4:03PM

I am so glad your all excited to do this with Jordan and I! I cannot wait for Christmas to come now. - lesley.belle.  262.4 #1129 4:45PM
I'll take your opinons into consideration of course but I feel positive enough about the mouse wait community that I think I can trust almost everyone. And as for the limit, I've got a lot of thinking to do. -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 7:30PM

great idea! - calidream1  397.4 #507 7:39PM
Bump for the LNC! -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 12:26AM
Great idea!! But I don't want this to end up like the Locker RAKs. And it very well could. - Ms.Mouseketeer  1005.7 #159 12:30AM

Sounds cool.. - ZombieWebbie  90.8 #3543 12:44AM
I've been doing a lot of thinking about this. I'm thinking we may want to split it into 2 groups. A group of people that are willing and able to meet in person, in the park, at a certain time, on a certain date. And another group of people that can't make it at that time that will trade through the mail. I have read comments by @msdizmaui, @partymousterAIR and maybe even @Disneymomof4 that lead me to believe that there are a few people that would be willing to donate extra gifts. Any more ideas? Keep 'em coming! -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 10:50AM
I would be willing to have an extra gift available if needed! I think splitting it up would be the best thing to do...as you stated for the people that can meet at the park, this would be a great gathering!!! My husband is also part of MW (FreddyChingon) and I can also ask if he would be willing to participate, but I am sure he will be more than happy to do so. I'm so excited!! - Disneymomof4  29.7 #5406 11:35AM
Splitting up would be a GREAT idea! - PartyMousterAIR  132.4 #2875 2:06PM
If we have a questionnaire for people to answer to help buy gifts for them, what questions should we ask? -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 2:06PM
I would love to participate! @tonyjord3- I would ask what some likes and dislikes are. Here is a link I just found for some potential questions for people to answer. It's from a secret santa questionnaire. http://www.bigbigforums.com/off-topic-chat/238241-secret-santa-questionnaire.html - Photogirl7  198.1 #1912 3:28PM
That's awesome would love to do it! ( by mail for me tho) - Bandleader Mickey  218.3 #1647 3:33PM
@phillylovescake Hi back :) haha. And tonyjord if u need help brainstorming I'm here! - sammyybabyy  139.7 #2764 9:56PM
Well yes it could go badly, but if everyone that is participating knows the risk I think this has the potential to be a fun tradition! Great idea and thanks for organizing. - PrincessDuckie  745.4 #219 10:09PM
Count me in! If there is anything we (Disneymomof4 & I) can help with, just let us know. - FreddyC626  30.7 #5321 10:48PM
It's not going to go badly. Positive thoughts. I'm surrounding myself and this idea with great people so we will knock all of the badness out of it! -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 10:56PM
I'd like to participate:) sounds fun!!! - supertracy  471.2 #397 11:26PM
I would definitely participate. Sounds like a great idea - my-unbirthday1025  165.8 #2358 6:43AM
I'll bump this to give a little more excitement to those of us who can't be at the park this weekend! -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 10:15AM
An I'm bored bump! -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 6:05PM
Sounds intriguing. I think I'd be up for it. - mswendybe  193.7 #1964 6:31PM
Have you heard back from Admin? - Disneymomof4  29.7 #5406 6:37PM
Hey, count me in!! I would love to be a part of this..Just keep me updated. Here is my email: misfit.mouse@gmail.com (yes that is a period between misfit and mouse) Thanks for such an awesome idea :) - MisFit.Mouse  477.0 #393 6:50PM
@Disneymomof4, I haven't yet. I'm still waiting on them. @Miswendybe & @misfit.mouse, I'll let you know! -Jordan - tonyjord3  204.0 #1846 7:44PM
K, well from what I've read Admin is just 1 person handling all of mw so he must be busy...so just hang in there and let us know when you hear something. - Disneymomof4  29.7 #5406 7:49PM

Me too @Missmolly! - ShariRenee  5017.2 #17 5:50PM

Update for week of Monday, January 19, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-11pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday-Thursday), 9am-11pm (Friday/Saturday), 8am-12am (Sunday). 

DCA: 8am-10pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday-Thursday), 9am-9pm (Friday/Saturday), 8am-10pm (Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: All of Critter Country (re-opening April 2015), Haunted Mansion (opens Friday 1/23), Matterhorn (May 2015), Sleeping Beauty Castle (March 2015), Snow White Grotto (May 2015), Pacific Wharf Cafe (re-opens 2/6), Redwood Creek Challenge Trail (re-opens in March), Soarin over California (re-opens May 2015), Taste Pilots' Grill (re-opens in 3/13).

Have a great week MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Jan 20, 2015 11:11AM



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  352.8 #599 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6792 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  114.2 #3188 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  216.8 #1668 5:04PM
