Three years ago today MouseWait was approved by Apple and made its debut in the App Store! Several weeks before that, we went to Disneyland to test the app, and I remember sitting in the lobby of the Grand watching as the test wait times registered in the admin panel. I was somewhat surprised because after a year of struggling to build the app, it appeared to be ready for submission. I remember telling my good friend Robert, who was there with me that day, "hey, this thing actually works?" (And yes, I said that in a surprised tone)! The day MouseWait was approved, we nervously rushed to the Park to try to keep the wait times current. I didn't know how people would react to the app, or if it would even work on a large scale. Through the grace of God, MouseWait quickly became the most popular Disneyland app in history and the community began to grow by leaps and bounds. Over the past three years, I've had the great privilege of meeting and getting to know so many amazing people that I would not have met otherwise. From the original group that started it all back in 2009, to the new groups that are thriving and growing daily, I'm still amazed at the generosity and sincerity of the entire community. I love hearing the stories about how MouseWait has brought people together in times of need, and the friendships that have been created -- I would've never guessed back in 2009 that this would happen. My family is truly blessed to be a part of this community. Thank you to everyone who has invested their time and money into MouseWait, I really appreciate what you've done. Those of you who've consistently put in wait times, posted live pics, spread the word, planned events, and contributed in other ways. I sincerely appreciate your contributions and you are the reason why MouseWait has thrived over the past three years. I look forward to seeing you this weekend as we celebrate not just an app, but people like you who've made MouseWait what it is today!
