Happy Birthday, Walt! I think we can all agree on the fact that Walt Disney was the greatest innovator of his time, and he inspired so many people to do great things. It's astonishing, when you think about it, that we get to "walk in Walt's footsteps" each time we visit Disneyland. We get to stroll down the same street that Walt personally inspected day after day -- to make sure everything was perfect for his guests. He built Disneyland with us in mind, because Walt was always thinking about the future. Post your favorite Walt Disney quote below OR post about how Walt has affected your life.

"Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children's approach to life. They're people who don't give a hang what the Joneses do. You see them at Disneyland every time you go there. They are not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought - sometimes it isn't much, either." Walt Disney - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #124 10:16AM
"Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” - Walt Disney This was the quote at the end of Meet the Robinson's and it is my absolute favorite. We actually have it framed and up in our home 😊 Happy Birthday, Uncle Walt! You are an amazing, American icon. You have helped in creating some of the most amazing memories and experiences for me and my family and for that I am eternally greatful! Not just at the Park, but Disney as a whole. βœ¨πŸ‘πŸ’™β€πŸ’œπŸŽ‚ πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽπŸŽˆπŸŽ‰ - melissa_ficent  318.6 #835 9:59AM

Happy birthday Walt! "All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you." Walt has been the catalyst for creating many great memories for my family and I and a constant source of inspiration. - NickDoubleyew  1094.0 #175 9:55AM
"If you can dream it, you can do it." Whenever I'm feeling overwhelmed in life, this quote gets me through it! Happy birthday Walt! πŸŽ‚ Thanks for perusing your dreams and overcoming all those incredible challenges along the way! - Duchess_SMK  6494.7 #19 9:58AM
β€œTo all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past...and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America...with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.” Everytime I hear this speech it reminds me how lucky and blessed I am. Walt did and said so many wonderful and inspirational things. When it comes down to it, one man kept his dream and did not allow the negativity of human nature to destroy it. Dream! Dream big! - aprilinjune4  483.5 #454 10:32AM
"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever." Happy Birthday Mr. Disney and thank you for everything. - PrincessLeia  312.7 #866 10:39AM
"What ever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it, they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do." - TharBeSquallsAhead  271.8 #1181 10:55AM
✨All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. - piratelife4me  1069.3 #180 9:41AM
"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."β€”Walt Disney - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 1:32PM
Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget, they don't remember what It's like to be 12 yrs old. They patronize, they treat children as interiors. Well I won't do that. - Plutoin702  15.7 #8626 2:57PM
Happy Birthday Walt Disney! Thank you for Mickey Mouse!! For all your imagination that you made reality! That everyone in this world may Enjoy!! "There's so much were aware that it's time that we share, it's a small world after all!" πŸŽΆπŸ‘«πŸ‘«πŸ‘«πŸ˜„ Therefore let us continue to live our childhood forever!!! Yay!!!

"The greatest moments in life are not concerned with selfish achievements but rather with the things we do for people we love and esteem, and whose respect we need." I love this quote because it exemplifies Walt's amazing character and regard towards others! - bayareadisneygirl  157.6 #2647 10:08AM
"A man should never neglect his family for business." I appreciate this quote most because even though he was a hard worker and successful businessman...it shows he didn't lose sight of his top priority: family. :) Eat cake everyone! - Darlingwendi  1228.1 #149 10:52AM
Great quotes so far! Remember to Like your favorite quotes so the best ones rise to the top of this post. - Admin 11:04AM

Happy Birthday to the man who created a place where I can escape from reality and be a kid again ❀ "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." - KladiaDisneyNinja  292.0 #1001 5:42PM
Happy birthday Walt! If it weren't for Disney cartoon or movies I never would have thought about going into animation. Everytime I walk down Main Street or anywhere in Disneyland I'm inspired to push myself harder to achieve that goal. "We have created characters and animated them in the dimension of depth, revealing through them to our perturbed world that the things we have in common far outnumber and outweigh those that divide us." So thank you Walt for helping me realize my dream and a very Happy Birthday to you! - Mepenguin16  168.4 #2477 6:02PM
Happy Birthday Walt. You did good, real good. Thank you from all my family for all the great times, past, present and for the ones to come. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #211 6:05PM

Happy 111th birthday Walt Disney!

There are a lot of great things said by Walt and great stories about Walt, but the one that sticks with me the most is what Walt said when the last pictures of him were being taken at Disneyland. "You shoot, shoot, shoot all the film you need because if it’s not in the can, you will never have it." This is always in the back of my mind and I always take one more picture, think a little longer, try a little harder, walk a little farther. Thank you Walt for giving me the most eloquent example for living my life and doing everything I do.

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105844 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6436.2 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127453 10:15AM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge.

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 May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. 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 May 9, 2016 5:42PM



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  643.2 #324 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7432 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #511 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  176.1 #2346 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1183 5:04PM
