Good Morning! This day in Disney history July 17th, 1955 @ 2:30pm. TV crews, Walt Disney, Art Linkletter, Ronald Reagan, Bob Cummings, the Mouseketeers, Thurl Ravenscroft, California Governor Goodwin J. Knight & over 28,000 guests witness the opening of Disneyland! Opening day had it's fair share of hiccups; Including a food shortage, traffic jam, a gas leak in Fantasyland & even a piece of a window from the Mark Twain falling on the head of a State Senator! Broadcast on ABC, it is the biggest live telecast to date! Happy birthday Disneyland & thank you Walt Disney for persevering! To watch the complete ABC broadcast: 🎬 http://is.gd/3DVWGj πŸŽ₯

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 June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



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  460.2 #439 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7069 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  130.6 #2942 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  237.7 #1429 5:04PM
I hope to be down at the end of August or first part of September. Which would you choose? - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 10:48PM
Sounds like you'll be there for Disneyland half marathon weekend  - MarshaMouse  4432.3 #23 7:41PM
thanx for the opportunity - MommyandBash  110.0 #3330 6:18PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  128.2 #2971 3:57PM
@Admin. I filled out a form for May 22nd.  I hope you got it. Thanks. - Winnie111286  4116.8 #27 2:23AM
@@Admin I booked with get away today and am staying at the HoJo in December.  Does MW still give the 100 credits or do I have to book with the hotel directly? - dsnylvr1975  5.8 #15120 5:02PM
