My love for Walt Disney----Its no secret that I have a deep fond love for Disney. The theme parks, the movies, the music, and the culture..its very safe to say that Walt Disney and what he has created is truly imbedded in three generations of on my fathers side... My Grandfather set their sites on Los Angles in the early 1950s after having my father in Montreal.and the family and decided to buy a house in Orange and started work at the Disneyland hotel in 1956 as a chef. He worked there for several years......I think because of that my grandparents and parents fell in love with Disneyland and use to bring me to the parks every week and even got me the an AP the very first year they came out in I think 1983 at my ripe age of 5....for years and years Disneyland all through my younger years was a thing we did as a family and all enjoyed it. I grew up with the movies like all of you. My first movie in the theater was Jungle book and my mother still says she cant believe I was quiet the whole time...Imagine that LOL...My love for all things Disney was so bad in Grammar school that the teacher told my parents in 2nd grade that she wanted me to stop sharing all my Disneyland stories during story time about your weekend because it wasn't fair for the other kids....hey they could have gotten APs HAHA.....Well all along this time my Father had a very great job and everything was going very well for us and he was with his company for 15 years until they decided to sell the company to Marriott.....He was approached by several large companies for very go jobs and weighed out his options...Little did he tell my sister and I until the day it happened was, he was now in upper management for the Disneyland Resort...Even though we all had passes it was like Christmas...Dad's working for DISNEYLAND!!! always as a kid, I always said, I'm going to work at the parks, so when that time came when I was 16 I got the job...O! Well, a year later in foods I was burnt on it and had a friend I met while working whom told me she was transferring..I said where? Character departments...WOW, she said yea, just come try out, you'd be good at it with all your energy...So I did and even though I passed the tryouts and made it!!!! My department wouldn't let me transfer yet (, I had to wait but I did get in and had the best few years working I've ever had in my life...Making others happy and creating life time memories was what Walt had done his whole life and for me to be able to walk on that stage and actually portray a character he created Goofy and many others was truly and honor. I know that there were times when I was on stage in front of his apartment taking a stroll with a little child making him and his parents day he was looking down smiling and what he had created for so many people all over the world..It was several years between working at the parks and getting into the corporate world that I really got back into Disney like I use to be..MouseWait changed that in Dec of 2009, its all been uphill since then...I cant begin to tell you how thankful I am for MouseWait and all the wonderful lifelong friends I have met on here and the new friends I meet each week..Thank You Uncle Walt for all that you have brought to my family, all the wonderful times that I, my friends and family have all had at your parks and enjoying your characters. movies and music... you've helped shaped my life, made me so happy, create memories and make wonderful friends I cant even begin to touch on it....Love you WED....

I had to cut down my original version...I could go on and on....I still get choked up at the parks at times and I have to take a step back and just enjoy the beauty that it beholds..if that dream did not become a reality most of our lives would be different... - Dave  13899.0 #8 12:21AM

I'll admit I do the same, I think it hits you even more on those solo trips too. There's something different about walking the parks without any distractions other than the park its self....one of my favorite things when life gets a little crazy. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’— - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4410.0 #43 9:12AM

Thanks for such an amazing post Dave. We all are in agreement on how Walt has touched our hearts with the building such a wonderful place for us to enjoy with our families. Wonderful movies that we watch over & over again and shed tears for. But few of us have experienced that special meaning of Disney as being a Cast Member. Walking through the park when its empty on your way to clock out and think, Walt walked here just as I'm doing, and a chill runs down your spine. When you get that first big smile from a guest and thanking you for being so helpful. So thanks Walt for everything. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #249 12:21AM
I would have been OK with never working there but as a kid growing up there at the parks then working there i think that you have to really give thumbs up on those whom have or do work for the parks..And those whom have really put their time in like 818, Michael and others you really need to tip your cap to them...its amazing how many people it takes to put on the happiest show on earth...its a team effort and without one another it would not work.....honesty, my times as a kid and even today as a guest at the parks are more precious to my heart as memories than being a CM because they are the ones helping create those memories for me and my friends.....but no matter what dept you were in, you were part of that show and were part of the magic....Thanks to the Magic Man himself...W.E.D - Dave   13899.0 #8 12:28AM
Couldn't have said it better. I think that's why we are so passionate when someone make a negative comment about the park or it's policy - splashphotoCM  885.6 #249 12:33AM

You play games against people to earn points on this list, and you make points for a monthly total playing individually but those points don't cross over.  - secretagentangel  12856.2 #9 1:05PM

I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  12856.2 #9 9:06PM

I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1109.0 #201 1:19PM
You're allowed to do it from the sign in front of each attraction or if you go on it a lot and can see the line is shorter/longer you can post that.  - secretagentangel  12856.2 #9 9:04PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  12856.2 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10886.0 #11 9:55PM

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  5163.0 #30 11:41PM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.2 #236 9:06AM
