So after the meet up the other day and hanging out some great MWers I have noticed that I am several years older than alot of you. So here are some things about me. At 44 I am a grandma of 4 beautifil kids and spend 4 1/2 yrs in the army back in the 80's. What is your story?

Right now I'm a 29 year old girl who is coming back from a very turbulent couple years, and (as weird as it may sound) sort of getting to know a person I didn't know was in me and where I fit in now. And just in the past month or so I've really felt free from the things that have been weighing me down for so many years!😊 And I have been through it all while apart of this app, and have changed and grown in so many ways since my start here. While I have been through so many of life's ups and downs here, and a little love/hate relashionship with the app at times😏---I wouldn't change it for anything!! I love this place dearly, and care very much for everyone in it! I have made some great friendships here. 😊 My husband and I live in Orange County and have been passholders since before our dating days, and are waiting for the day we are blessed with little ones. πŸ’— ...and no matter your age, just keep coming and meeting people! We all share a passion for Disney, which keeps us all young at heart! πŸ˜ƒ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.2 #34 10:27AM

I love your candid honesty, SIC. I think a lot of us have a love/hate relationship with the app at times. πŸ˜‰ I got to meet you briefly at a crowded meet up but it was a pleasure meeting you! - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #221 10:31AM
aww. so sweet β€πŸ‘πŸ‘ - misschurro  7100.1 #15 10:40AM
Haha. It's all I know!πŸ˜‰ ...Yes, I remember briefly meeting you Lane!πŸ˜ƒIf I remember right it was at Buzz. Those big meet ups can be crazy! Hope to see you again soon!! - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.2 #34 11:08AM
Yup! It was a big ol' Buzz meet up. Hope to run into you again soon. πŸ˜„ - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #221 7:50PM

I promise I'm not a creepy stalker, SIC! It was nice meeting you, although only briefly πŸ’—βœ¨πŸ’—βœ¨ - PrincessKristin  780.8 #248 12:37AM
I have loved reading everyone's stories! Its crazy how we come from all different backgrounds and lifestyles to be BFFs on a common ground of Disney! - Armenda  1160.9 #158 10:42AM
Hii Wallflower buddy! LOL! I'm 25. Aunt of 11. My brothers are 14 and 11 years older then me. I live in Fresno, CA. Obsessed with Monsters Inc. I have been dancing since I was 4, did Colorguard for a total of 6 years (4 in HS and 2 yrs after). The group I was with placed 3rd in the world in 2007 (the year I retired.) I work in a doctors office doing Scheduling and Medical Records. I think that pretty much sums me up in a nutshell.  - Armenda  1160.9 #158 9:02PM

I'm a 32 year old mama of two, a 3 year old girl and a 1 1/2 year old boy. Hubby and I have been together for almost 14 years & married for almost 9. We're incredibly blessed to have our kids after years of infertility. ❀ We take the kiddos to DL as much as we can (when we're not blocked lol) and spend as much time together as possible. 😊 I like to do digital graphics and photography on the side, but to pay bills I'm a manager at a wireless company. - LBChica  2529.7 #60 9:05PM
Nice to get to know you - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 9:13PM

He kisses his baby goodnight (mickey) and Pooh and LILO and stitch are loved in this house. I live to bake cupcakes in my spare time, which is getting harder and harder to find... - DLlovingMommy27  238.0 #1532 10:09PM

Hi I'm Marsha(mouse) I'm 34 and feel 25. I am divorced and happy. I have a 6 year old that is obsessed with Pirates and sometimes StarWars. I'm a teacher of 3rd graders, now teaching my 13th year, so hard to believe it!! I grew up in East LA and I saw a lot growing up, but was bussed out to Brentwood and Palisades by the beach for schooling, so I'm more American than Mexican lol. I grew up with Dodger stadium in my view and I LOVE hockey! Couldn't be happier Kings won Stanley cup! - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 10:19PM
I love everything about you Marsha! Hugs! - ohhhtoodles  365.2 #639 10:26PM

Hi Marsha....I see you post a lot of wonderful pics. You seem lovely. Looking foward to meeting you one day :) Question, did you grow up by Dodger stadium? I grew up in LA...Chinatown to be exact and I could see Dodger stadium from our apartments. - Luvvdisney  384.3 #596 10:31PM
I grew up in City Terrace but from my hill near the 10fwy I could see the gleaming parked cars and bright lights. It's about 5 mins away though. - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 12:34AM
Oh ok, very cool! The apartments we lived at had a big grassy field across the street from us and you could see the stadium! They also filmed The Little Rascals there lol! - Luvvdisney  384.3 #596 9:45AM
Ok guys here it goes! I'm Rebekah but most of my friends call me Bekah. I'm 32 and a very single (lol) mommy of two girls ages 11 and 6 who are my world. I just adore them so much and love every little thing about being a mom. I'm a special education teacher and have been teaching for a while. I love it! I got started because I have a brother with autism. I love everything about Disney. I saved up literally every penny I had when I was seven so I could go to Disneyland. I did chores. I've been a AP holder since 2001. Growing up I raised livestock (believe it or not) and was such a little country girl. I'm so opposite now! Haha - ohhhtoodles  365.2 #639 10:25PM
You must love sleeping in now! Lol - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 10:28PM
We are year round! But right now it works out I'm only working four days a week! πŸ˜„ - ohhhtoodles  365.2 #639 10:29PM
Hello to you. I love country life. Used to raise cows, turkeys and chickens. We had peacocks too. I miss the poultry. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 10:41PM

My dream house would be on the beach with Yosemite on one side, Lake Powell on the other side and Disneyland in my backyard!!! Garth Brooks is my all time favorite signer but I also love Coldplay and Frank Sinatra. I love to go swing dancing and can get my groove on to pretty much any kind of dancing. I've had an AP since 1997 and love everything Disney :) - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4467.1 #32 11:30PM

❀ you, Duckie! Thanks, Marsha! My mothers advice was the best - never lie about your age; better to have folks think you're younger than you are! I think the reason my MW friends are so important to me is because of not having a large (or even medium sized!) family. My family is right here! - Gia  802.0 #235 9:52PM
Hi! I'm MommaB! I'm 40 (40 is the new 30) :o). I have 4 juice boxes and am happily married! Our APs have expired so we won't be 'home' for awhile. In the meantime, I will be living vicariously through you! I love Buzz (especially Latino Buzz) and I have a crush on Eugene Fitzherbert (yes I am aware he is a taken fictional character ) ;o). I look forward to meeting all of you one day! Xoxoxo - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.9 #153 1:26AM

I'm 44 too! :-). Been married for almost 22 years, we have two beautiful miracle daughters, 14 and 4. There isn't a minute of our life that is not Disney related :-). We so miss our AP's but it does make the times we are treated there so much special! I am the Disney Geek in my circle of family and friends and love playing tour guide and being the go to person for Disney questions. I try to convert others to the Disney Way, luckily I succeeded with some, our daughters and nephews love Disney too :-). Can't wait to get AP's again so we can attend more meetups and meet some new MW friends. But of course so grateful for the MW friends we do have now, it's awesome that other Disney geeks are the nicest people too! - PrincessDuckie  913.7 #206 7:33AM
Love you!! - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 7:47AM

Hello everyone, nice to meet you all! I'm Penny, and with a 50's name like that, you know I'm older then most of you! I've been married to hubby Mike for 25 years. We have two kids, a daughter who is 21 and has been a CM for over 3 years, and a son, 19, who basically wants nothing to do with Disney *gasp*. I've loved Disneyland since I was a kid watching "World of Disney" on TV on Sunday nights! - TinkPen  432.7 #520 7:38AM
My step son does not understand his dads obsession either. Lol - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 8:50AM
Thank you to everyone that has shared. I look forward to meeting you at some point in my Disney adventures. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 8:18AM

Hi!! Here's my go at this - My name is Diobel (pronounced dee-oh-bell) but everyone calls me Dio. I am 28 and am married with a two-year old son. I grew up in Union City (East Bay) but moved to So Cal in 2006 to finish school. I graduated from CSUF in 2008 and again in 2010 with my masters. I now am blessed to work at CSUF. I absolutely love Disney. Aside from Disney I am a diehard 49ers and Giants fan. I also LOVE dancing. My next venture is to overcome my anxiety and meet MWers! 😊 - EpicDio  460.3 #488 8:25AM
Once you start meeting MWers, you'll wonder why you were nervous about it - they are some of the nicest people I know!!! - TinkPen  432.7 #520 8:39AM

Hi everyone! I'm Vickie. I'm 54 and married to the love of my life, Vern :) (Santeemouselover) We have been married for 7 years. Between us we have 5 grown children and 2 grandchildren. We own our own business doing embroidery for businesses, teams and individuals. We discovered our love of Disney together. We used to go once a year, for Christmas. We've been premium passholders for three years. Our dream is to one day sell our business, "retire" and work at Disneyland. We joined MouseWait in February of 2011. - vernswifevickie  400.5 #576 8:34AM
My husband is a retired police officer and loves his Disney retirement job. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 8:44AM
You and your fam were some of the first MWers I saw in the park but I was brand new and sooo shy to come up to anyone and introduce myself. Hope I get the chance to meet you all some day! - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #221 10:04AM
Im 36 years old, with four wonderful children. Ages 12,10,9,6. I have been married for fifteen years and my husband and I have known each other since the sixth grade. We own a carpet cleaning business that my husband does almost all the work himself. He goes all over the place to work. Even as far as Seattle when several jobs are planned. I'm a stay at home mom. My favorite thing to do other then Disneyland is to do counted cross stitch. Enter many into state fair which I've received first place. I'm going to first mw meetup today in Salem so hopefully I can get rid of this anxiety I have over meeting other mw's. Your all great. - Tinkerbellmom4  440.2 #510 9:14AM
Have a great time today! You'll be around great MWer for your first experience - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 9:27AM
Oh that will be a fun meetup. Question for you... Does your husband sing " let me take you on a magic carpet ride"? Lol. First thing that came to mind when I read this. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 9:46AM
I'm Lane. 30 years old. Live with my husband of 2 years (together for 9) in Long Beach, where I was born and raised. No kids but a hairy white kitty named Jack. 1 nephew and 2 nieces and a ton of honorary ones since all our friends have kids. We've had passes since 2006 and I joined MW a year ago. I love reading, cooking, and seeing stuff. Any neat stuff. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #221 10:09AM
I'm yet to meet you πŸ˜‚ hopefully soon! We need to plan it! - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 10:27AM

Hi, I'm RB! I'm 20 years old and lived in Colorado until I moved to LA for college. I was originally a student at Cal State LA but had to leave because I couldn't afford to continue paying out of state fees on top of all the tuition increases. Now I'm at a different school, but for some reason I still can't claim in state residency. Atleast the tuition isn't as expensive, that's one of the reasons why I can afford an annual pass. I found this app towards the end of my first year in college. I love how the MW app has allowed for me to continue fulfilling my Disneyland endeavors lol - rbeezy  703.0 #279 12:26PM
Glad that you can go to school and Disneyland. It is a great stress reliever. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 3:49PM
Hi my name is Sara & I'm a Disney-a-holic... :) I'm 34 and live in Washington state - when I was growing up my mom would take me to California to visit friends (road trip!) every couple of years... On a few of those trips I lucked out and she took me to Disneyland for a day!  Now, I have 2 kids, 14 & 12 and I love planning our trips to Disneyland!  I work for the state as a computer geek... when I retire my dream is to become a CM & spend my days helping families enjoy the place that I love most!  ...I haven't met any Mwers yet, but I sure hope that I get the chance to when we visit the happiest place on earth next month!! - DiamondInTheRough  349.6 #693 9:46PM
Om goodness. I am from WA st. Lived in purdy, Tacoma, mineral. I miss it so much. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 10:39PM
Hi everyone, my name is Adriana :) I joined Mousewait through my hubby. In December of 2010 he surprised me with a weekend at the Disneyland hotel. He downloaded Mousewait on my phone cause he knew it would make my day. As soon as I joined everyone welcomed me and it made my day! We live in the South Bay. I'm a student at Cal State Dominguez Hills, about to enter my last semester. My dream is to one day work at Disneyland. Oh yea, and I love my 3 doggies :D - Luvvdisney  384.3 #596 10:50PM
Congrats on your last semester of college. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2051 10:56PM
Thank you! I can't wait to finish and have more time to spend with friends and family and of course Disneyland! :D - Luvvdisney  384.3 #596 11:04PM
Welllll, I am among the eldest of the MouseWait family, but I certainly don't feel old! I spent my 48th birthday at the park in June πŸ’—βœ¨πŸ’— I live in the Pacific NW. My husband is an educator and I am a hospice RN, and in September we will celebrate our 28th anniversary. We have three sons who are all in college, ages 19, 21, and almost 24. Our youngest son attends college in So Cal, and our middle son did last year but is taking a year off and will be back home this year. Our oldest son is getting his degree and will be moving out soon. I was a stay-at-home mom for many years, the went back to school and graduated from nursing school when I was 40. We love to travel, love Central Oregon and the Oregon coast. - PrincessKristin  780.8 #248 12:11AM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127093 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  5615.2 #23 8:10PM

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 month of April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. 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 Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM



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  643.2 #322 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7397 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #509 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  175.4 #2345 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.8 #1179 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17910 3:45PM
Saturday's are less busy - DarthFairy  472.1 #467 2:18PM
