Good morning MWers! This day in Disney History, July 24th, 1966. The New Orleans Square area opens @ Disneyland! Walt Disney & the real mayor of New Orleans, Victor Schiro host a grand opening ceremony. The 3-acre site is the 1st new themed "land" added to Disneyland after its 1955 opening. It cost $18 million to build. (This will turn out to be Walt's last major public appearance in the park.) For a special look back in time, click here: 🎬 http://is.gd/ODG7Zz πŸŽ₯

Duchess, you are truly a rad MWer and a great person. I'm so glad that Danielle and I had the chance to meet you and that you two have connected so well. These history posts are greatly appreciated.

I use this every time I'm at the parks now and llove it!!!!  Thanks Admin - leopardditz2000  1157.2 #169 7:44PM
I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 7:03PM

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 June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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  643.7 #335 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7589 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #522 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  183.5 #2291 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8059.8 #11 1:41PM
