PLEASE READ: I appreciate everyone's feedback in regards to the current Lounge situation. From version 1.0 in 2009, I've built MouseWait based on user feedback. I think there is some confusion however, based on several posts and comments I've seen, in regards to the issue with page numbers. If you go back and read my last few posts, I clearly state that I am not done with this upgrade and I have explained the problem with pagination on mobile pages - it's not just something I randomly or haphazardly removed. Pagination is something that is not scalable in our situation. I spent hundreds of hours - and thousands of dollars - going back and forth with our entire development team, as well as outside developers, to find a solution for handling our exponential growth (over the last few days our traffic and daily usage has been higher than ever - even with our current issues). It wasn't long ago that we couldn't even keep our server online, now it rarely goes down, and that is because I invested a ton of money and time making fundamental changes to maintain the load. If these types of modifications aren't done in advance, the entire system could fail and it would take weeks or months to fix when the load becomes too much. Most months, from 2009 to the present, I've put more money into MouseWait than I make - in an effort to innovate and move MW forward. Innovation costs money and sometimes has unforeseen challenges that come with it. When I am done with this new upgrade, the Lounge will be better than before. In addition to this recent challenge, we've gone through almost 150 builds to get 5.0 ready, which has cost me a tremendous amount of time and money because of the several major setbacks we experienced during our biggest update yet (5.0 is a complete rebuild). However, the end result will be the most advanced Disneyland app in history. We have a lot on our plate right now, along with getting MagicRace launched in time for the Birthday Bash. Like I said, I have no problem with people voicing their opinion, but in this case it seems as if my explanations about the current situation have not been taken into consideration.

I'll be the first to admit, I didn't read your explanation all the way through or maybe I did and didn't understand it. My apologies Admin. I appreciate the work you've put into the app and all of the sacrifices you and your family have made. I would be more than happy to pay for this app and I'm pretty sure there more then a few who would also, if that would help. - toph  2418.2 #50 2:49PM
I would definitely pay a fee. - Experiment818  1646.3 #93 2:51PM
Nicely put Toph, and ditto. - Tom  9083.7 #5 3:02PM
πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘βœ¨ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  600.2 #319 3:03PM
No prob toph! I just wanted to clear things up since there was a lot of misinformation floating around. Thanks again for all you and everyone has done to help MW grow! - Admin  3:10PM
Ill pay! - MarshaMouse  4704.0 #22 3:17PM
count me in!! - Stitch_Legacy  5138.0 #19 3:24PM
I'd pay too! A one time app fee is really not a big deal at all... and then maybe it'll prevent trolls and repeat accounts - KylaShea  632.7 #295 3:29PM
Down with the freeloaders! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.3 #290 3:32PM
I'd pay too. - BCC  4783.2 #21 3:50PM
I would absolutely pay for this app and frequently think to myself how quickly I would buy it if it ever had a fee. Admin, if someone wanted to make a contribution, would buying credits be the best way? - tballzz  558.2 #341 4:07PM
pffft I still can't believe this app is free lol. I'm not one to volunteer to pay for something free, but I totally would! - madsdad  1868.1 #79 5:39PM
I think that a lot people would pay a couple bucks - Dave   12979.3 #2 7:17PM
Just let us know how much $ - LaPearleNoir  1638.0 #95 7:23PM
A few dollars is small price to pay for all the memories and friends I've made in the last year and a half. - vincentchase1  672.9 #276 8:16PM
Absolutely @VincentChase. I'd pay too. A couple of bucks is the least I can do. - DisneyFanZoe  1228.0 #129 8:29PM
I agree. I'm more than willing to pay a small fee for this great app. - treradical  126.1 #3009 9:15PM
Thanks everyone for the kind words! @tballzz yes the best way is to buy Credits from the web version, thanks! Just to be clear, though, I didn't post the thing about the money to try to generate revenue. I think there is a misconception about top ranking apps in the app store - people think they make millions of dollars just because they get millions of downloads. This is not true in every case. It is definitely not true for us up to this point. However I am not complaining, I just wanted people to know the reality of the situation and how much it really takes to maintain and keep the app moving forward. Thanks! - Admin  9:34PM
I know you didn't post that to create avenue admin, and it didn't sound like it. just so you know that you have so many people who are so grateful to us for creating this app and it means alot to us. I bet mobsters app doesn't get this gratitude lol. - madsdad  1868.1 #79 10:02PM
*revenue - madsdad  1868.1 #79 10:04PM
I think since the revenue stream in not coming in then everyone should donate if they can to relieve the stress that 5.0 and other things are putting on you...There is no need to rush putting a new version out until its ready...nobody is going anywhere there are just quite a few of us that are still left from the beginning who hold MouseWait very near and dear to our hearts and very passionate and want for it to keep succeeding now and for years to come... - Dave   12979.3 #2 10:26PM
I concur with Dave. Take your time and please consider a paid version of MW. - BCC  4783.2 #21 11:07PM
Most definitely! If there's anywhere we can donate, please do tell! :) - SleepyTortuga  288.4 #932 11:13PM
well, there is a donate button... - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 12:05AM
@NicoleFace... ah so there is! haha I'm not very bright sometimes :/ - SleepyTortuga  288.4 #932 1:07AM
you are very bright. people just forget about that there button. :) - nicoleface  1752.4 #87 1:24AM
I would definitely pay. - clarabelle87  194.2 #1998 8:33AM
I didn't read that post all the way either Admin ( hangs head in shame) I'm so excited about what is to come and will be more patient in the future. I was just a little freaked out thinking it was permanent. I agree with everything Toph said and would gladly pay for MW. Thanks for explaining. Crossing my fingers that everything runs smoothly for you! - SueBayou  2019.6 #68 3:25PM
You amaze me, admin. You put such hard work and thought into this wonderful app for all of us. I'm excited to see what the new lounge will be like and all these glitches will be well worth it, I know it!(: We all trust your hard work and time and thank you! - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1399.4 #109 2:46PM
Thanks again Admin, I can read your frustration and know you are doing your very best to bring MW to new heights. I for one would be willing to pay $5.00 for this app. Maybe even a shareholder, cause my FB stock ain't worth squat. Thanks again for doing what you have continued to do for us and MW. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #189 5:11PM
Admin please know that we very much appreciate all of the hard work that you put into this app!!! - cinderella5  333.1 #684 5:14PM
I would be willing to pay also. - timetraveler2442  343.7 #649 7:04PM
May I kindly suggest that everyone "Subscribe" to Admins posts...then an email will be sent directly to you and then you'll never miss out on his important messages. :) - Darlingwendi  1205.1 #134 9:25PM
This is great advise! - mrscttlemstr  308.7 #808 10:35PM
Good idea! I miss a lot of them because they get buried! - templeclan  54.8 #4382 10:51PM
Admin, I would like to say thank you for all of the hard work, lots of time and numerous amounts of money you put in to this app. I have met some really great people through this community and it wouldn't have been possible without you an your hard-working team! So, thank you for everything you do to make this place such an enjoyable experience for everyone! 😊 - PrincessMacy  536.5 #362 9:52PM
Ditto! - mrscttlemstr  308.7 #808 10:09PM
I just want to say thank you for all the work you do on MW. I know the Sandcars would gladly pay for MW if that is something that will help you out. I hope people understand how much work you put into MW and that its not your intention to make MW harder for them to use. I hope you can figure this issue out so you don't have to worry about it anymore. Thanks again Admin. - Sandcar13  1403.5 #107 12:07AM

Thank you for the most amazing app! I always take everything in stride with the app, the good and the bad. I know you are always working to improve it and never feel like you aren't "working fast enough" when something happens. The work you do with this app is mind blowing and I love it! I tell everyone, even perfect strangers, that they need this app if they are going to or in the parks. Thank you for everything you do! - Autoalice  161.1 #2475 2:53PM
Thanks for all your hard work Admin!! And btw I cannot wait for MagicRace!!! - sharminlea  298.9 #865 2:54PM
Thanks for all you have done with this amazing app. But, also welcome to the big leagues. No amount of announcements will prepare your app for the real world and real world responses. Just ask Apple with their Maps rewrite. I am totally looking forward to the treasures 5.0 will provide. - Experiment818  1646.3 #93 2:56PM
Thank you for all the hard work you had put into this app. I appreciate it. - sallyg  234.3 #1485 2:56PM
I somehow missed the explanation. I apologize for that. Thank you for explaining further and for everything you have done and continue to do. MW has changed my life, in more ways than I can ever express or ever fully thank you for. I'm excited for all the new changes. Thank you Admin!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ - DisneyFanZoe  1228.0 #129 2:59PM
Thank you Admin for the explanation! - Tom  9083.7 #5 3:01PM

Thank you admin for a wonderful app. I use it everyday and love it. - chipanddalefan  733.4 #241 3:07PM
No worries! Thanks for everything you do! This app is amazing and without you putting so much time & money into it, it wouldn't be what it is today! Can't wait to see what the changes/upgrades are. Thank you! ξ—ξŸ - iHeartDisney84  270.2 #1096 3:10PM
Thank you Admin! : ) - Ericksenator  376.9 #564 3:12PM
Thank you Admin for all you do for our Dinsey obsession. You have done such a great job That I think we just forget that perfection takes time and we must be patient. I am sorry because I was getting frustrated. But I knew in time it would be better. - Deltachiq  1228.0 #130 3:17PM
Thanks Admin, I think your replies to us about pagination ended up not being seen with all of us posting, so glad you put this again. Sometimes the technical stuff is confusing to all of us who do not work on apps and all but we know you are working hard and any upgrade is always made for the good of us all and the future. So glad people are starting to join, just met more people in line using your app and now are going to do wait times and post. Who knows how big this will be even a couple of months from now. So thanks again!! - secretagentangel  1948.4 #75 3:23PM
Im a rookie at this mouse wait app and all i can say is it takes a genius to make a social network. I give you props for having the heart and soul to make this possible. And to put more money into something than you earn sounds unreal and i have nothing but respect for you. God Bless you Admin ,Mouse Wait and all of the familys using your app. - BeautyNthaBeast  45.3 #4716 3:33PM
We should all take away from this one lesson: READ ADMIN's POSTS COMPLETLY. He is giving all of us this wonderful app so we can share our love of Disney while making new friends. Thank you so much Admin. Your hard work will never go unnoticed or unappciated by me. - PrincessAuroraMomma  555.8 #344 3:43PM
hard to read when they aren't on the first page and the search features don't work. but thank you i can read those caps much betterπŸ‘ - toph  2418.2 #50 3:47PM
Point well taken, but a lot of us were confused because we actually couldn't see his posts--for a few days, only one post per page was showing in people's (including Admin's) profiles and the search wasn't picking up a lot of info. :) So we had no way of knowing what was going on unless we happened to be in the Lounge when the post was in the top 10 or so (show more posts wasn't working for many of us also). Very appreciative of all his work--just wanted to say that many of us weren't just ignoring Admin, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  600.2 #319 4:33PM
******β¬…πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­πŸ‡¦πŸ‡³πŸ‡° πŸ‡ΎπŸ‡΄πŸ‡Ίβž‘ And I am greatful for all that you have done, and will do! We all just need to be a little patient. ✨❀✨ - MadameLeota  3126.4 #40 4:18PM
Thanks admin for all the hard work, time, and money you use to make this wonderful sight for all us Disneyland nuts - Plutoin702  15.7 #7771 4:20PM
I simply can't believe the dedication and determination that you have given to create MW and to make so many incredible improvements!! Thank-you just isn't enough and I hope you really understand how much MW and this MW family means to me and to my family! You are truly amazing!!! - adisneyfamily  866.0 #198 4:27PM
I never saw your explanation. Thanks admin. I understand the reasoning now. - KissDclown  1089.1 #156 4:30PM

Thank you admin for not only creating this wonderful app, but putting your time and effort into making this app better then any other app out there. Because of this app, people come together to share a common love. You did that, and I thank you again. I was excited when 4.0 came out, and I'm anxious to see what 5.0 and beyond brings us. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.3 #174 5:14PM

I am always amazed at the amount of time and money you pour into this app. Thank you for clearing up concerns that people have had. I'm excited to see what's coming next. I agree with others that I would pay for this app to help keep it growing. - LilSterner  5033.0 #20 8:21PM
Admin, I really think you could charge a fee for this app, and I really think you should. - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  474.9 #420 8:27PM
The phrase "thank you" is just not enough to express how much I and many of us appreciate all of the hard work and money you put into this app that we have used for free. I am always amazed on how you can think of ways to make MW better than it already is. I am truly honored to be apart of this community and we are all rooting for you. So everyone, don't forget to click on those ads!!!! - BaseballMickey_CM  7103.3 #9 8:27PM
Thank you!! I also missed the explanation at first...totally makes sense! - MinnieMousewife  886.5 #188 8:29PM
Thank you so much for creating such an awesome site... You definitely have put in a lot of time and money, sweat and tears into this App.. I know it cost $$ to maintain and keep an app like this running smoothly and I personally think we should pay you something for this wonderful place we call "Home".. - ColoradoMickey  548.3 #350 8:46PM
Thank you for giving us the gift of MouseWait! We appreciate everything you do. I would be more than happy to pay if that would help. Thank you again!!! - Boundin  613.0 #308 9:29PM
Bumping- since this keeps getting buried. Thank you admin and does the amazon link purchase thing still help out mousewait? - templeclan  54.8 #4382 10:48PM
I have been very impressed with the time and attention you put toward maintaining and upgrading this app. It's nice to see that you show interest in the comments posted and often express your appreciation for quality posts. It takes people like you that really care to make such an outstanding community. Thank you. - MamaRoo  466.6 #433 11:31PM
Thank you so much for everything, Admin! I love this app and would gladly pay! Idk about the issues going on in the lounge since I was given a 12 week old puppy and have been a mess the past 4 days lol! But I seriously love MW and no matter what goes on in my personal life, I can never stay away from this app for long ;) - SarahLovesDisney  82.6 #3769 2:25AM
I got your back admin !!!! - snakeinmyboot40  394.0 #534 5:26AM
it's looking GREAT, Admin. Thanks :) πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5461.1 #17 7:14AM
It feels good to give. Use that donate button everyone, thanks Admin! - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #158 8:21AM
Thanks Admin ! I'm sort of new here so I haven't used the app too much. But from what I've experienced so far it's pretty fun! Thanks! - CaptainSwan  34.1 #5295 10:06AM
Thank you for all your hard work. I don't think people realize just how much this app does and all the hard work it takes to keep it running smoothly. Many apps out there rarely update, improve, or fix problems. Some just seem to be abandoned all together. A little patience people.Β  - Minnique  603.4 #316 11:26PM
I sure appreciate your efforts. This app is as important of a tool for visiting the parks as the "Unofficial" guides by Schlesinger used to be. Thanks, Admin! - wg4ever  343.1 #653 11:35PM

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 July 27, 2015
Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM



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  488.4 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7120 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  383.1 #553 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  160.7 #2482 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1420 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4704.0 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.3 #10615 9:33AM
