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  12688.2 #2 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  4394.3 #23 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 #182 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   12688.2 #2 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 #182 12:33AM

There are 100's of people standing at bag check. Lines backed up to La Brea Bakery. They've stopped people here to herd over people already in DCA over to DL. And, we see 100's of those folks standing at the gates.  - thompsonsyl  5.2 #16711 2:36AM

My first software project launched in 2003 as an experiment in online productivity. TIMEJAR was one of the first online/mobile time management systems with thousands of users including Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and families. In 2015, we completely rebuilt the TIMEJAR time management system and made it free for everyone to use on their desktop and iOS. Seize control of your todos and accomplish the impossible today!

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 May 18, 2015

24 Hour Day this Friday, expect big crowds! Both Parks will close early this week to prepare for the kickoff of the 60th Anniversary Celebration. Should be quiet leading up to this Friday, and the weekend should be PACKED! Watch MouseWait for real-time Crowd Index updates. 

Have a great week! - Admin May 19, 2015 5:54PM



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  398.4 #521 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6987 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  123.7 #3030 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  227.9 #1558 5:04PM

Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1522.6 #98 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1522.6 #98 1:06PM
