Those contemplating on quitting: Don't. Believe me, I was in the same position as you, but I reached out in a meetup and made some friends for LIFE. Yes, LIFE! Just last night, after the buzz meetup, I spoke with a MWer last night and he told me that the app has changed his life and made DL a much more enjoyable place to hang out. There are people, here, with common passions for Disney. 13 or 40, people act like kids. Love to wear those big sorcerer hats? So do we!!!! We love filling up a pirates boat or a jungle boat, or blasting Zurg away, many things that a MW meetup can offer. We may seem harsh, but in person, we are completely different people for the better. So, if you're a lurker or a former MWer, I encourage you to attend one of our meetups and see MW for yourself. Admin has created an amazing app and I would hate for you to miss out on potential relationships that can change your life. I wouldn't ask you to do something that I wouldn't do. Just give it one more chance. #peaceout #openforum

I am breaking my month-long silence with this reply. That was very well said. The problem is...first impressions made with bad humor or sarcasm, chastising a new member because they saturate the rooms with photos, or they ask the wrong question. Repeatedly, veteran members will reply to these posts with "oh, lawdy!" Or "pass the popcorn". That is a huge put off the the newer members. As for the folks that haven't been on very long AND don't get to the parks as often as most, the attitude is "Your not us, so don't speak to us" or you don't come to the meet-ups, so you have no idea about us". Well guess what, with attitude, I don't want to know you. I have not met one single solitary MW member, yet some I love like a sibling. Others, eh, not so much. The air of Disnobbery some folks have is just too much to stomach, and that is a major turn off for ALOT of folks. If people stop participating on MW, there will be no reason for MW. I don't want to see it, you don't want to see it. People need to understand we are all in this together. Humor, if correctly passed on, is great. Sarcasm and mean spiritedness is not. Thank you! - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #548 10:20PM
"Assume positive intent." - John  312.5 #838 10:24PM
Great points and Disnobbery is now my new favorite word! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.6 #150 10:27PM
I liked your comment. Well said. :) - L0VECINDERELLA  10.7 #10560 10:32PM
Your concerns are noted. Some people convey their words differently than others. - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:34PM
really good points! it's the "strong personalities" that made me nervous about attending my first meetup last night, especially because i get shy (and awkward) when meeting new people. but i'm glad i went because nyghtngale, latruce, sassie_cass, and ashleylynn22 were so welcoming and friendly! couldn't have met ya'll without MW :D - thinkhApPytHoughts  223.8 #1682 10:56PM
I'll divulge you a secret. When we were taking the photo, who was the one that said "Do something funny!!!" and started jumping around like a coffee bean? - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:57PM
A theme park? - Alicewhoareyou  2571.4 #54 11:15PM
Amen BHhaha! - Disney4ever55  205.0 #1932 11:25PM

It was nice meeting you too Thinkhappythoughts! 😊 You're so sweet! The way you walked up to us and said hi I'm new was awesome! Hope you had fun! - Nyghtngale  572.3 #355 2:31PM
Thank you :) - disneyfan46  334.9 #723 10:38PM
I think that BCC was trying to say something positive and encouraging, and your reply BHhaha just fuels the divide. There are many, many people on this app. Everybody is not going to get along, or like each other, or have the same sense of humor. You don't find sarcasm funny, I do, the world won't end. And what happens in this lounge is off putting, if you aren't capable of being on an online forum. And pointing fingers at the veterans of this app is old. I've met many of them, and they are some of the nicest, most genuine people I've met. And for the record, the "oh lawdy" and "pass the popcorn" comments are not all from veterans. This lounge is customizable. Use the block feature, use the RP feature and move on. Drama is found were you look for it. And the friendships I have made here, are what keeps me coming back. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #136 11:03PM
Exactly what I was going to say! The veterans are barely posting anymore, and I prefer to think of it as witty banter anyway. - Missshelly  698.3 #278 11:08PM
Back then was a lot worse. You remember. - BCC  4783.2 #27 11:09PM
Yes. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 11:10PM
Right. And I don't see any of them posting threads and complaining about the new people and how annoying they are, or they're such cry babies and they do this, and that. Everytime you turn around there is someone who is not capable of logic, complaining about how mean people are, how horrible the OGs are... It's a ridiculous double standard. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #136 11:13PM
Actually, my intent was not to fan any flames. If that is what you took from it, I am sorry. I was trying to convey the frustrations new members, and some older ones, feel when making a posting faux pas. People, of all rank levels, say things they think are funny, but come across as mean spirited, but the newer members, for the most part, are only doing to curry favor of those with a higher ranking. By the way, how is the MW cookbook coming along? - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #548 7:47AM
I'm sure it's not intentional, but it inevitably causes more issues. I'm surprised you remembered! Nobody else seems too... It's stalled, I recieved very little. I'll try again soon, since we have a new crop of people. Thank you for asking! 😊 - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #136 12:36PM
DZF you are so right! Plus the ranks do no make someone a veteran... These days it's so easy to get a high rank!! - UrsulasTwin  323.7 #785 2:13PM
There are two things that a lot of people fail to realize about MW: 1) it's a "democratic" chat room, meaning that there aren't any moderators. Users report posts and try to keep things up to standard themselves. Yep, there's a lot of sarcasm, but in the whole, most of these users are genuinely trying to help the lounge stay the way admin intended--instead they often get unfairly called bullies or jerks for merely trying to refer people to the FAQs. 2) the Lounge is completely customizable with the block and RP buttons, so you have 100% control over what you see. If you get sucked into drama and let it get you down, it's your own fault, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 10:48PM
I feel like I've seen this same thread about 872 times now.. - KelBelle  453.2 #486 10:31PM
Yeah, posted by new folks. This is posted by someone who's seen EVERYTHING. - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:33PM
I'm thinking it might be more than that 😜 - LBChica  2437.4 #59 10:33PM
If people are getting chased off, I think it should continue to be said. If the snark on new members continues, so should the hang in there posts. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.6 #150 10:35PM
Does anyone else only read the first two sentences?? - dug_one  2394.9 #63 10:35PM
And I feel like I have to say this 872 times: "If you don't like it, scroll." - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:35PM

And as long as its a issue you will hear it 873 times and more until it chills down just a tad in here its getting out of hand - MikaDreamsEverythingDisney  249.1 #1364 10:42PM
This post was not formed because of any drama. It was formed because I was contemplating on what was said to me no less than 24 hours ago. - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:45PM
Well said BCC - MikaDreamsEverythingDisney  249.1 #1364 10:47PM
Very well said BCC! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 10:01PM
Agree - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1036.1 #178 10:04PM
Ya know, I agree with y'all, but I haven't met anyone yet because I live in bay area and don't get to the parks often. But, I look forward to meeting a lot of you. You seem kind to each other and I get the sarcasm because that's my sense of humor. I don't let it get me down - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1300 10:38PM
Have I already said how great this post is? I think so, but I am going to say it again. Accentuate the positive...eliminate the negative.  - Jewelz  557.9 #363 10:48PM
Well said mister! - LBChica  2437.4 #59 10:02PM
Didn't miss anything actually. I was contemplating a conversation I had last night w/ a MWer. This community makes memories just like Disneyland and I'm so humbled to be a part of this wonderful place. - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:03PM

I'm pretty new to this community, but I want to say everyone has been nice to me so far. Granted I'm not asking questions or posting tons of pictures. I belong to a few different online communities and they all have their issues. I have made life long friends on other message boards and are greatful that these forums exist. - poppins101  5.3 #17911 1:48PM
Welcome you will do fine here. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 1:49PM
I feel the same, I did stop after it seemed that is was more like snobbish groups. - disneyfanforever  33.4 #5680 2:44PM
CONFESSION: I had no clue what MW was when my hubby dragged me to our first meet up, had no clue what to expect. But I can tell you that I am so happy my hubby did. I have met some wonderful people here and some I consider friends. Ya there are some people here who go past sarcasm, but I just block them, I'm to old to deal w childish stuff like that. I refuse to be a 31yr old with a bully :) but honestly you guys make DL a whole lot better for me, its always fun :) -The Wife - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 11:11PM
I love this! I definitely want to go to a meet up when I have the chance to go back. Hopefully during spring break! I would love to meet some nice Disney fanatics =) hope to meet you! - kayceeb  167.3 #2451 11:14PM

Very well said, BCC! I don't think anyone on the app should let the words some other people write on here get them down. There are genuinely kind-hearted people on this app who mean no harm and don't deserve to be type-casted as a negative person. - rbeezy  703.0 #276 10:07PM

Wow, I guess posts to encourage can still attract some sort of negativity. It is a free country, so say what you will. $$ should be secondary to forming relationships. That's all I have to say. - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:09PM
And I'm sure Admin is grateful for the money he does make, but I think him and his family (as well as others and myself) have made friendships that are priceless - LBChica  2437.4 #59 10:09PM
I have my moments. - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:12PM
I agree. I went to my first meet up on Saturday and I had the best time ever! People may say mean things on here but don't let that stop any of you from coming to a meet up. - JazzSingingMermaid  338.6 #708 10:13PM
Oh, now I understand the intention of your original post. I was confused for a second. - BCC  4783.2 #27 10:15PM
I agree BCC This app is priceless! Disneyland will never be the same for me. I felt it has made me a more confident, stronger and happier person. I love driving there, parking there and automatically bumping into a MWer and hanging with them. Large or small group it has been a life changing experience for me. I am so grateful to this app and for having the courage to put myself out there to meet the most amazing kindest people I will ever meet!! - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 10:15PM

I've been on MW for awhile now... There has been and always will be people who don't see eye to eye, that happens every day in life in general. As much as we all would love to get along this is like any online forum where there will be different opinions, personalities, and sense of humors. - LBChica  2437.4 #59 10:25PM

I'm glad to see you stress that MWers are great in person and that whole aspect is a new and exciting experience. We all have our moments but I feel like there are few out there that seem to truly be cruel or bullies. I look forward to meeting MWers on our next trip and while there has been a learning curve, I hope people do power through it and learn to appreciate what we have here. Some grace on new members through that learning curve would be nice but I know it can be hard when you've been around long enough to see something hundreds of times. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.6 #150 10:47PM

I agree! Living in Canada, MW is my only way to DL each day away from six kids! Even if it's a few mins, I am reminded of the inner child in me who loves to play and this app takes me to my "fun" place! I love to just see whats goin' on and say hi to numerous MW app friends. ( i have yet to meet a MW at the parks!)Many MW have given wise and comforting words when I first joined last April, two months after my Dad passed away. Thanks to all of you I am not as depressed as I could have been through that difficult time ,and I can offer the same consoling words and reach out to others who are going through the same loss. THANK YOU MW's!!!! - calidream1  398.0 #567 2:36PM

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

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. 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 Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM



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  611.5 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7242 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #499 7:32AM
