So, what is the appropriate way to approach a fellow MWer that you recognize in the parks? I think I've seen some...but didn't know exactly what to say. (Excuse me, are you on mousewait?)...seems a little weird!

First thing, you can easily spot of MWer when you see a white iPhone cable coming out of their pocket or bag and is connected to their phone. Also, they'll be constantly looking down at their phone. If you see one, just say "hi! Are you from MW?? I'm (name)." - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:57PM
That was me today... - shawnarae  4.5 #20817 10:21PM
I kinda did this when I was working the parade route after pyro the other night and recognized spaceRAYnger from pics on here.. Ended up meeting mizzspaceRAYnger, Charlie Mouse, and MEHlanie Mouse, too. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 10:29PM
@IDV it was great meeting you! - LoneRAYnger  4261.6 #33 10:48PM
You too! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 11:31PM
Hahaha! @IDV yeah it was nice to meet you! :] - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 11:50PM
I like to fanny smack the cute ones and sucker punch the snarky ones. Then there's the sweet ones, who I like to hug. And if they're big enough to catch me, I jump into their arms. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 10:07PM
Video or it didn't happen!!! - Armenda  1159.7 #152 10:09PM
I will show you mine once I get to see your CarltonπŸ˜‚. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 10:15PM
I'll make sure I stay away from you then. I don't want to get sucker punched. πŸ‘Š - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 11:38PM
Scream and hug. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 9:49PM
Security! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 10:44PM
They are probably mousewaiters too lol - madsdad  1868.2 #92 10:46PM
That's why they keep hugging me! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 10:48PM
Yep! And if they say no... recruit them! - Armenda  1159.7 #152 9:50PM
You can pretty much walk up to anybody with a New Trent or at one of the MW outlets we know about and it's a sure bet it's a MW'er so no problem. I was charging in bathroom on pier & lady came up & asked if I was MW. - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 10:00PM
I always yell " I spy a MWer!" If they turn I'm right, if not I pretend I was talking to someone else. Lol. Most people that spot me just scream my name. πŸ˜‚ - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 10:06PM
Just say "Supercalifragilistic"... A true Disney fan will be compelled to finish it, and if they're not a MouseWaiter, introduce them to the Club... - timetraveler2442  343.7 #695 10:36PM
If you do a drink rak I will find you! - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 11:53PM
This is true! He's like a hawk that will swoop in out of nowhere! - GreenLantern  746.6 #257 11:55PM
The easiest way is to go to a meet up! Then u know everyone is from MW! - GreenLantern  746.6 #257 11:58PM
I go right up to them and introduce myself. And yes, I have received many hugs in return! - Bo22  394.2 #570 9:55PM
I'm always terrified at first so before I go and do it I stop, take a deep breath, and then approach with a "Hi, are you from MW?" Only once did I fail. - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #208 9:57PM
So would it be weird if I made a sign that said MW and just sat down somewhere and waited? - mousejedi  310.1 #858 10:08PM
That would be so funny. Like sitting at a table with a little sign. Do it! - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 10:17PM
Yes do it! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 10:21PM
Awesome. I will post more info regarding this closer to the time I will be in the parks. - mousejedi  310.1 #858 10:34PM
i had two misses before I landed me an authentic MWer. The first two I just asked "have you heard of MouseWait?" becasue they were talking about wait times. Person said no and then I just went on explaining what the app was. Then on my third try I knew there was a meetup at the cove and I recognized @CaraMiaPoohAKAFace. I was a little nervous, went up to her and ask, "Are you on MouseWait?" She then said, "mousewait, what's that?" (really nice, right) So i laughed and told her i knew she was on it. we laughed about it and introduced ourselves. Not all of them are as mean as Cara, lol ;) love you Cara! - MaidMiriam  308.0 #871 10:12PM
i have definitely introduced myself to someone i thought was a MWer but wasn't. doesn't hurt to ask! - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 10:12PM
At some point I think we can all safely assume that whomever we see at the park is a MW'r. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 10:14PM
I accept churros, cream cheese pretzels, and beignets. If you're nice, I'll share. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 10:23PM
I've seen a few MWer's around the parks too, but always a bit shy to approach. - LuvsMimisHouse  515.8 #407 10:27PM
A nice firm slap on the buttocks - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 10:45PM
If its me...I'll ignore you. You may do the same. πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.8 #313 10:45PM
I started giving out raks to the mwers I recognize. "Hi, you're from mousewait. I have a pin for you!" It's my super secret Rak. - supertracy  471.9 #453 11:29PM
I got recognized while staring at my phone. So just post your mug once or twice and then stare at your phone and a MWer is sure to find you - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 11:42PM
Let me tell you from experience, I... oh wait... I haven't approached an MW'er at the Parks... never mind 😬 - onezerohero  174.2 #2329 11:45PM
