My happy MW Rant: So as many of you know I ran my first race every yesterday. I ran the Tinker Bell half. I want to say that the event itself, in my opinion, was just magical and so much fun. But one thing that made the event extra amazing was seeing fellow MWers along the way. From the start line where I saw @veronica21 and her boyfriend Danny cheering there little hearts out. I screamed there names out like a little kid! Seeing them cheering pumped me up so much! Then running into @Mimmy as we ran behind the scenes of Disney and down Main street. I was so happy to see you and chat with you! I am so proud of you that you finished hun:)! Then seeing my dad at mile 5 brought the most insane sensation of joy over me... I have never felt that happy before, I was in utter surprise that I found them. Then running into Beau and my best girlfriend at mile 9 brought happy tears to my eyes. Beaus hug gave me so much strength. Then selling the deal at the last water station where it was Mwer heaven! I was so out of it by that point I don't even remember who was all there lol. I know VincentChase was, CptCrk, Ipoch, Brian or chris lol..., Lilo were you there? Heresnipey..... it was a blur I think I was officially out of it at that point and mad at my mom lol. Then at mile 12 bend where I again saw @veronica21 and Danny to lastly the finish line where I saw @Iamdugmaster and she offered me a thermal blanket and a hug.... just to all volunteers who took countless of early morning hours to help support us... thank you. To my dear MW family. Thank you for cheering me on, passing me water, and providing me with the countless words of wisdom and support to help me get to the finish line.... @GoffyJoe, @H3D and @Dave thank you for helping me along this journey with all my running questions. The support system that you fine folks have given me on here and on Facebook, well words can now explain how thankful I am for you guys. You all helped me achieve a dream I had... your words and kind actions helped me believe in myself. Thank you everyone... thank you MW:)

Let me further elaborate because I keep seeing post on FB and on here about people question if they can do the next 5K or half that is coming up. I just want to share with you guys that I really think that every single one of you can! I am comfortable in sharing that on July 1 2011, I could not even jog for 30 secs at a time. I could barley go a mile without wanting to die. But Joining weight Watchers and sticking to a simple training of 2 30 min walk/jogs a week and then 1 longer jog a week up till race trained me up for this. You really just need a strong support system, a dream, and a good pair of running shoes and I know you can all do this. I pretty much speed walked from mile 6-12 lol and I still made it :)ย Also.. the race being at Disneyland and DCA really adds an extra magical moment to it. My fav. part of the race yesterday was running through Fantasy Land and the Carousel was going and the Lost boys were on there waving and clapping us on :) - BooEve123  800.9 #232 10:40AM
Congratulations! What a huge accomplishment! You're so awesome I hope we get to meet you soon! - pintsize  290.1 #972 10:43AM
Thank you for this! I need to rejoin WW and get on the ball! - PrincessDuckie  906.3 #203 10:44AM
Officially inspired! Thank you =} - 559MickeyLover  334.6 #726 10:44AM
Same here! So inspired!! - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 10:55AM
I agree! So much of it is mental: mind over matter (as long as you're in generally good health)! You have to dig deep inside and access your inspiration. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #332 11:16AM
Thank you for posting this. You have inspired me to train for the next one. I started couch to 5k (again for the hundredth time lol). I feel like I'm going to die, especially pushing a strolle! Great job and hope you keep it up!! - kss4tink  218.0 #1763 12:36PM
*stroller* where was autocorrect on that one lol? - kss4tink  218.0 #1763 12:37PM
Kss4tink- Just to share my personal experience: I used coach to 5 K to week 6. I then decided that I needed to follow the Jeff Galloway running guide that was given to me during the Registration for tink. You will find your pace. One thing that coach to 5K helped me on was my endurance. One this that was so amazing to see in myself was how I no longer got winded. Even this weekend not once was I out of breath ever. It was just that my body was so tired. I am sure in -25 my joints wont hurt as bad. :-D - BooEve123  800.9 #232 12:52PM
Thanks! I will have to look up the Jeff Galloway guide. I definitely need endurance so hopefully couch to 5k will work. :). When I'm not running I always feel like I can do it and runs for long periods of time but when I'm running, that's a whole different story lol! My body is yelling at me: "STOP now before you hurt yourself!" - kss4tink  218.0 #1763 1:06PM
Thank you for posting that, Boo. I have zero endurance and can't run for a minute without my heart feeling like it's going to explode. I've done a 1/2 marathon on inline skates and that still was a huge struggle, the thought of running it seems impossible. But you have inspired me to start trying! Congrats, I know this has to mean a lot to you, as it should! You're such a doll! - Sugarbaker  273.5 #1132 1:15PM
Awesome display of determination and willpower. We all new you could do it. Congratulations on a job well done. I owe you a hug in person, but for now another virtual air hug will have to do. lol  - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 11:12AM
Cass you did such a wonderful job. You have no idea how exited we were to see you. Every 5 minutes or so we would ask each other if we had seen you run by. We were elated when we saw you come our way. Totally proud of you girl!!! - HereSnipey_Snipey  265.5 #1203 1:50PM
Oh my gosh Boo, I have tears!! It is so inspiring to hear what point you started from and to believe that I can actually do it! It is so amazing to know how supportive MWers are- that just warms my heart!! Now you are the expert and you can help newbies like me! ;) - Melliott  301.2 #906 2:52PM
You have inspired me. I am going to do the Tink run next year! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ - jjdq  338.0 #712 3:12PM
That is so awesome that you did that.  It sounds so fun and exhausting. - TheBudd  357.3 #653 10:19AM

seeing you guys snapped me out of a big wall I was hitting you guys helped me get to the end on whole other levels. - BooEve123  800.9 #232 10:31AM
Be proud that is quite an achievement you are an inspiration to us all. - Missymoo  742.2 #262 10:30AM
I kept on telling my sister to be on the lookout for you while handing out the blankets and I was getting worried that I might not find you but then suddenly youย appeared. I really am proud of you. Even though we have never hung out and just know each other by MW giving you that hug at the end felt like you have been my friend forever. Congrats!!!! :) - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #209 10:30AM
P.S. Because of all this yesterday I have inspiration to run at least the 5K next Sept. (just not the half marathon yet) - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #209 10:34AM

Wow, that sounds like a lot of running! I don't even know you Boo but I'm super proud of you!!! My back hurts just thinking about all that running lol. Way to go! - 559MickeyLover  334.6 #726 10:31AM
I'm so glad I ran into you Boo!!! I was feeling nauseous from the start thru mile 4 and was really unsure about even continuing the race given my lack of training. I was forcing myself to at least get thru DL when I ran into you. Your encouragement helped me to stick it out. The nausea went away soon after and I ended up being able to finish. I may have quit if I didn't run into you!! I'm so proud of you for all the hard work you put in training for this. And a great big thank you to all our MW volunteers!!! - Mimmy  1442.3 #119 10:34AM
:( I'm sad I missed seeing you at the finish line! Still Congrats! - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #209 10:34AM

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  642.4 #315 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7249 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #500 7:32AM
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  171.2 #2392 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  249.4 #1358 5:04PM
