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!
Its crazy to think that its been 3 years. It honestly feels a lot longer..Its amazing at how big the community has gotten since the very first meetup..The life long friendships, the dreams that have come true, and the laughter that we all have in the parks on a daily basis.Its so neat to see all these meetups on a daily basis that get up to 80 people and happen not only at the parks but all over the state of California..Its pretty crazy to think that none of us would probably have ever met if it were not for this app...There are not many of us from the beginning who still actively post on MouseWait or attend meetups but I know that each and everyone of them is extremely grateful for the people who have been brought into their lives because of this app....I know some people might get annoyed at times by people posting in the lounge and their countdowns to the park, what is your favorite ride, etc etc but you have to remember, you were once that new kid on the block that was just as excited to post in the lounge and join in on the fun and not read the FAQ....I look forward this weekend seeing old friends and meeting new ones and finally getting the chance to meet some of you that I've seen in the lounge for sometime but never had the chance to meet in person....Hope everyone has a fun a weekend!!!

Thanks Dave, well said, and it was great to see you there this weekend. Singing Happy Birthday to BBM was a blast! - Admin  8:59PM
Thanks to Mousewait: I think leggings and uggs are a viable fashion choice, I tried (and failed) to eat a Matterhorn sundae by myself, I know who Denny Hamlin is, I know where all the bars are in the resort, I've had many sleepless nights and a phone fall on my face more than once, I know about penny wise and honey badgers and Rebecca black and gangnam style and hidin yo kids, I witnessed a banana peeled, I own vinylmations and pins and earhats and about $1000 worth of crap from company d. Yeah, thanks. 😏 Actually, I have a lot to thank MW for: late night craft frenzies, staying up all night talking in our hotel rooms, going to WDW with people I barely knew 6 months, realizing that we know everyone on our floor, pizza parties, group texts, squeezing 40 people on a jungle cruise boat and making the skipper laugh too hard to spiel, going to gay days and bats day and dapper day and Harry potter day, answering "80" when the cm asks "how many?" and then watching them panic, reading about the MW babies being born and watching them grow up and finally being tall enough to ride the big kid rides, skipping down main street arm in arm like a bunch of doofuses, β˜” on pirates, dressing up like plaids and getting a talking to by security, meat babies, laying on the ground to watch fireworks, having someone text "are you home safely?" at 2am, and always being there for you, even when life sucks. Thanks MW, you're alright. πŸ˜‰ - bluefairy  643.3 #278 4:42AM
Ha! Good stuff! - Admin  9:02PM
You Sir are Beautiful. Yes, I cried as I read that. Thank you so very much for being you! - Butterlina  1512.9 #95 3:22PM
Thank you Butter for being a part of the community for such a long time! - Admin  9:03PM
::wipes tear:: Awe Admin! This app has changed my life in the best way! Can't wait to celebrate with everyone this weekend! Thank you for all you've done to create this ever evolving wonderful App! It makes me smile everyday. That, is priceless! Happy birthday MW! πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚ - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 3:31PM
It was great seeing you, thanks for all your contributions! - Admin  9:03PM
MW Rocks! ! - joxua  87.9 #3617 3:20PM
Touching story admin! Thank you for all of your hard work! It's hard to describe how much this app means to me. I was sooo nervous moving across the state to go to school and thankfully for mousewait, I have a REALLY large extended family that I love and can rely on! I mean, I met my best friend though MW, and this weekend a MWer offered to brig me soup because I was sick. I couldn't have articulated it better than what you said; this community is downright amazing. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #173 3:22PM
That is awesome you met your best friend through MW! Thank you for sharing I appreciate it. - Admin  12:46PM
MouseWait is amazing! It will just continue to get better and better. - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #185 3:22PM
Thank you Admin! MouseWait is truly the mobile extension of Walt Disney's vision of magic, friends and imagination. - IMissDisney  1205.3 #124 3:24PM
All thank yous to you Admin for all the work and effort you have done to make MW even better! Without this app, I probably would not have had the chance to fulfill my dream job as a CM in the parks. From just the people here, I've learned so much history, tips and news about the parks and when I work, I try to pass on these things to guests in order to make their day better. Thank you again and hope to see you this weekend! - BaseballMickey_CM  6865.4 #9 3:25PM
My appreciation for this app goes well beyond words. The effect that it has had on our family - the new friends, the rediscovery of DL fun, everything - we owe to your amazing app. This is a prime example of succeeding beyond one's wildest dreams. - Experiment818  1640.6 #86 3:25PM
This is great and with out MW I doubt we would know so many great people. And that I would have such great friends only a little more then a year ago I had no friends that Lived close enough to hang out with every weekend, yet alone everyday. And now I do have many friends to hang out with and spend time with them both inside and out side of Disneyland. MW has bought me a lot of great memories in such a short time. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #146 3:26PM
MW is a great thing. It has increased my enthusiasm for Disney, and introduced me to some really wonderful people. It's a wonderful thing you have done Admin. πŸ‘ - Tom  8488.3 #4 3:26PM

Thank you for all the hard work you do here, sir. I've met a lot of really cool people that I can actually relate to because of this app and it's all thanks to you. I'm also lucky enough to have made friends here that I can hang out with outside the parks on an almost daily basis. People that will go on adventures with me, grab dinner for no reason, and that share similar interest outside of Disney. Your dedication and efforts are much appreciatedπŸ‘. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #198 4:15PM
Thanks to admin for this awesome app. I never knew that downloading a wait time app would change my life. Since joining the lounge I have met tons of awesome people that share a love of Disney. - ScooterMike  1962.2 #69 4:21PM
Thank you Admin for creating this wonderful app and giving all of us Disney lovers the chance to come together. You have been the catalyst for changing many lives and creating so many friendships. The weekend hasn't even started yet but the last two days have been so awesome for dimplesdanie and I and MouseWait is a big part of the reason why. Thanks Admin!!! - MightyWhitey  1062.4 #152 4:51PM
I have to wonder if there is another app out there that would get so much love for it's creator. I think not. Because there is no other app creator as awesome as our Admin. The love you receive is a direct reflection of the greatness you created for all. Thank you Admin. - Evilstitch  338.5 #648 5:18PM
This app has brought so many memories to me in so many ways. I'm thankful I stumbled upon this app one day over a year ago and can't wait for many more to come.

Happy birthday Mousewait :) Still my favorite app. - michelIe  422.1 #473 2:05AM
To many of u I am a newbie but downloaded this app last yr. Just like many of u looking for a Disneyland app. And I loved it, checking wait times, see if I was blocked out and see where to eat. I'd pop into the lounge but never got a username, to shy. But last yr I had 2 miscarriages and on those days when all I wanted to do was cry, I'd reach for my phone and open up MW and look at all the wonderful DL pics u all posted and I'd get myself up and take my son to that Magical place and to see him happy would make me smile. So for that I thank u MWers and most of all Admin for this wonderful app that means so much to many and may MW thrive! Happy Birthday! - dumbbunny  626.5 #290 2:41AM
Happy Birthday MW! Thanks, Admin! - goofygal  8207.2 #6 5:50AM
Your post is beautiful! Thank you so much for all that you do and for the amazing start of MW. I may be new but I have followed for over a year now and can't believe what an amazing community this is. I am looking forward to meeting new people on here and creating lasting Disney memories. Wish I could be there for the birthday bash this weekend!! - Ldgsg  209.6 #1794 8:05AM
Admin, thanks for creating an app that made a true community who believe in pixie dust, generosity, good hearted fun and fellow man. You are an extension of Walt's dream of why he created Disneyland. - monikeyta1  12.5 #8596 8:07AM
Admin, we can't thank you enough for creating MW and sharing your vision with us. Without your hard work we wouldn't have this awesome gateway to Disney and amazing friendships. ❀ - LBChica  2207.7 #57 12:48PM
Thanks Admin for all your hard work! MW has been one great blessing for me!!! I joined a couple months after my Dad passed a couple years ago and it has helped me smile through those times of need! Being in Canada we only visit the Parks once a year and having MW in my pocket for a quick trip is the greatest! 😊Thanks sooo much!!! - calidream1  397.5 #518 12:55PM

any chance you will be welcoming dogs in your outside dining area anytime soon? - MelodyMouse  4020.0 #26 12:24PM
that would be nice - DisneyDavidEMT  2059.0 #64 12:34AM
I heard a law was passed this year that permitted dogs to be allowed in any outdoor dining patio area... someone should look into if this applies lol ... - therealJackandSally  77.2 #0 7:08PM
My dog was welcome there for the MW striker night meet up on Mar 31! - MelodyMouse  4020.0 #26 1:45PM
Scotchie has dined there with us...but he also had his vest on - BombFrogFormerCM  842.3 #196 4:53PM
http://cchealth.org/eh/retail-food/dog-law-faq.php Β  I know folks love theiri pets but I still do not think this is sanitary Β from a food perspective. See the url for CA law. Unless they provide a designated pet area outside, dogs cannot lick the plates/utensils, who cleans up after a dog accident......No pets in at a restaurant for now (service dogs are the exception). Disney is excellent with their food cleanliness in the parks per the Public health inspections. DTD does not fare as well per Retaurarant inspection. Check the Health Care Agency for the current restaurant inspections. As a Public health nurse I always check to see who is keeping clean in their kitchens. Diners beware! - Plumiegirl  8573.0 #3 10:42AM

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 Monday April 20, 2015

CROWD PREDICTION: Back to short hours this week, and based on our Historical Crowd Index, we see mid-70s with crowds decreasing through the end of the month. There is also a chance of rain toward the end of the week which could throw a wrench in things. Friday and Sunday's have been the busiest days, but rain on Friday could cause the crowds to be significantly less. Have a great weekend! - Admin Apr 21, 2015 11:28AM



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  373.0 #559 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6934 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  122.6 #3044 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  224.5 #1584 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  362.1 #580 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1444.0 #99 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  181.2 #2148 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1444.0 #99 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1444.0 #99 1:06PM
thank you. No worries. I just figured out how to find my old comments to see replies :)  - bks4lou  181.2 #2148 8:21PM
