CONNECTIVITY TIPS AT DISNEYLAND: Please post your tips on how to combat the poor data coverage in the Parks. Maybe together as a community we can help make this better. It's BEYOND frustrating for me to invest money in upgrades to MouseWait when you can't even get online when the Park is crowded. It seems as if we've regressed back to the same poor coverage we had back in 2009. AT&T has been particularly bad, Verizon seems to have the best coverage at the Resort. Here are some things that work: Turn off AT&T's LTE, it is worthless right now at Disneyland, do a hard reboot of your phone, switch Airplane Mode off and on. Use AT&T's Mark the Spot app to report poor coverage. Please post your tips below and I will feature this posts during busy days. Let me know if you have any ideas of what we can do as a community to push for better coverage inside the Parks, we definitely have the numbers on our side. Thanks!

::whispers:: doesn't another app ALSO rely on coverage? And if so, Wouldn't said app want their app to be seen therefore make sure towers are about? I think a tower, hidden as a tree, done top notch, by the ImaginEars, would be a good thing - misschurro  7476.1 #12 1:02PM

I wish they'd offer WiFi in the parks. I know for a fact that due to all of my posts on "other social networks," my friends and family members have either made plans to visit or have already visited the parks. *coughadvertisingcough* - susieQzee  555.8 #390 11:47AM

For everyone to stop using phones in the park will fix the problem !!! And to enjoy the wonderful time at disney - greenbpac1  3.7 #26759 6:31PM
You do realize this is app thrives off user submitted wait times and live park pictures/news? - Linzee  1383.6 #136 9:13PM
I completely agree. I think there should be something to be said about Disney not having the motivation to improve connectivity issues because one of the magics of Disneyland is that you are emerged into a world of magic and wonder. You can't be fully emerged if ur on your phone half the time. When I used to go to the parks frequently, I will admit that I'm guilty of working or doing things on my phone which are not related to my visit and looking back, I wish I didn't. - dsmdanny  144.9 #2866 5:10AM
Of course it would fix the problem, but nobody would notice because nobody would be using their phones... Which wouldn't happen in the first place. Yes, it isn't cool when people are constantly on their phone (and it makes me so mad when people are texting on Pirates, believe me) but it is possible to enjoy your visit and use your phone at the same time. - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #220 9:17AM
great post.but when the parks are crowed the only advice i can give is to post from toontown,downtown disney,the parking structure the areas around tower of terror and paradise pier near goofys sky school because these areas tend to be less crowed or near the outside/street towers can pick it up.also posting early and after main fireworks/fantasmic when the crowds leave make it easy as well and finally create a collage of your day and post next day also works for me. - pikarich  6155.2 #22 12:20PM
worst areas to attempt to connect are main street,adventure and frotierland,tomorrow land,carsland/bugsland and bvs. - pikarich  6155.2 #22 12:23PM

Really?! Are there carriers with poorer coverage than Sprint? There very few spots I get any reception at all. But the good news is that I have unlimited data. Ironic, no? - alankeno  57.8 #4616 12:53PM
it depends on the area, i get poor reception on Sprint in tomorrowland, the rest of the areas are semi decent - Villescas8  607.0 #352 12:59PM
T-mobile. - LaTruce  2364.6 #69 4:13PM
For T-Mobile, I've found the best places for coverage at the resort include the smoking dock by Haunted Mansion (although I don't smoke anymore, it's still a good coverage spot), the esplanade between the parks, portions of the Grand Californian, and the bridge leading away from the food court next to Paradise Pier in DCA. Don't even bother trying near the castle or in Cars Land... there's no signal at either spot. Also, I sometimes get relatively reasonable coverage on the old boat dock that parallels the princess meet-and-greet area near Small World, but it seems to be better in the morning or late at night than during peak hours. Sometimes you can pick up Disney resort wi-fi on top of Mickey & Friends or in the Pinocchio lot... try using the password 'magic', it's worked before. - Ladypixel  15.2 #8882 9:09PM
On iPhone switch "Airplane Mode" on. Then switch it back off. Wait for the "3G" or "4G" to come back on. Usually you will have a signal for a few minutes unless its extremely crowded. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #92 12:18PM
I'm at the parks right now and service is spotty on AT&T - ScooterMike  1963.0 #92 12:19PM

The only thing that works for me is turning off AT&T and using a Verizon Hotspot. - Admin 12:35PM

We have had good service with Verizon inside the Parks. (Outside too!) I say leave at&t like I did years ago! Get Verizon! - Stumickey  292.0 #1009 12:53PM
I've not really noticed too terrible of coverage with my MetroPCS phone. - MrsMears  217.3 #1828 1:01PM
Sadly I have that too so I can't even use MW on my phone (ironic since I upgraded to a "better" phone just so I could use MW @ the parks) - MissAmericaSings  432.0 #534 7:26PM
I just jump on MW often enough that it bugs my family and I end up with great reception. If I try doing it when I am alone in the parks I get no reception. - Linzee  1383.6 #136 1:03PM
It's Jack Duncan. Single riders are the most suspicious. Trust no one. - GrumpyPirateDad  1951.3 #94 1:07PM
It may not solely be reception... I haven't been to the park since I found mousewait (counting down 4 more days), but on the busiest days at the park I can't get on to mousewait through the web portal at all. Seems that their is a problem with overloading the servers as well. - AdamCumming  114.3 #3419 1:10PM
Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, But is this one of those times that #laming here with my old plays look thighphone 3Gsomething may slightly be to one's advantage as its not trying and can't get the 4G signal anyways? I tend to rub my thighs together and chirp. The high humidity and lowered temperatures help with my chafing. - Butterlina  1589.8 #114 1:14PM

For what it's worth, I have T-Mobile and also have terrible coverage most of the time. - Disneymale5000  22.5 #7195 1:22PM
agree, Tmobile is very sparse in the parks, especially when it's a moderately busy or worse day. When there's no one there, I still have problems sometimes. Usually the best spot I've found is Carsland or Critter Country. - Sarafina  491.7 #460 1:44PM
The tip of turning off LTE worked e weekend of 12/8. The only thing I found that worked on Sunday to get on things like Instagram was to turn the phone off and on. That worked for about one minute, so at least I could look at some new downloaded pics. IT SUCKS LATELY! - Tom  12774.0 #5 1:24PM
This past Sunday that is. - Tom  12774.0 #5 1:32PM
How about Sprint? My best reception is on the tram. - Winnie111286  18778.5 #3 2:19PM
CarsLand in DCA seems to have the best connection. Main St in DL - RickChavez  3672.1 #43 2:29PM
Any tips on t-mobile? I have the unlimited 4g data plan - shannonrifle  10.0 #11466 2:27PM
I have 4g Tmobile too... It never works in the parks. The only place it works decent is in DCA Bugs Land. Tmobile is no bueno in the parks!! - LizO  471.1 #482 3:05PM
I turn off WiFi sometimes (especially at DCA) - because sometimes it's trying to catch the Grand Californian's WiFi, and neglecting the network. (it also helps with saving battery). Sometimes, the parks are just too crowded with people using their data networks, it gets overwhelmed. I find that the lesser visited lands help with reception. And the Mark this Spot app is very helpful - it helps them know where they need to improve reception. - LaTruce  2364.6 #69 4:18PM
It seems like it has to be our phones besides carriers because with tmobile I can get reception near POTC, critter country, in front of Jungle Cruise, by Fantasyland walking by Dumbo, Lots of areas in Tomorrowland, and Toontown. Hardest is Main Street! But some days I can't get anything, I have a hotspot I don't use that much there and it has not seemed to help. I have an old mytouch with gingerbread, and it seems to work better than the galaxy 2 with Ice Cream Sandwich. I honestly think verizon must have put in a new tower for their people there. With the new merger of tmobile and Metro i think starting in January, I am sure the other carriers are going to be ramping up there coverage too. I have tried a cell phone antennae too, and nothing. - secretagentangel  6978.4 #17 6:15PM
I think its metro, not sure on the the one they merged with but starting in january tmobile is starting the bring your own phone plan which is supposed to include better coverage. - secretagentangel  6978.4 #17 6:17PM
The disneyland railroad is the best reception for sprint, works everytime, ecspecially when you go by small world!! - surfr76  68.5 #4318 8:12PM
My bf gets the best reception on Sprint 4G by toy story mania. I have at&t & web reception sucks everywhere. Downtown Disney is the only place were i don't have too much problem posting. Early mornings are good time to post and on the tram. Crowded days are just horrible for at&t. - AandV  159.0 #2636 11:02PM
Crazy I was getting great reception at star tours today with AT&T. I couldn't even mark the spot at times - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #27 12:01AM
FYI-I have pretty much always had good luck with my Verizon at the parks...eats away at my battery pretty good, but connects well!!! - TinkerSchelle  2067.6 #82 12:08AM
i have sprint iPhone 4S... getting a reception just dried my battery SO BAD!!! however around nighttime till closing time, i have a good reception everywhere. - otilegna  2786.3 #52 1:09AM
I agree! I have sprint 4s my battery went from 86 to 38 in an hour! πŸ˜’πŸ˜” - mickeyat78  2094.5 #79 6:11AM
I have pretty good reception at the parks. I have the iPhone 4 and my service provider is Verizon. I use the NewTrent to help maintain battery life. I am not sure if that helps. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2063.7 #83 1:26AM
Twins! I'm an iPhone 4, Verizon, and never go to the parks without my NewTrent!!! - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1403.3 #133 3:36AM
I hope Santa brings me the new Trent I asked for! So I can start bringing it to DL :) - mickeyat78  2094.5 #79 6:12AM
@mickeyat, I hope you get your Christmas wish.@AvidDisneyThrifter 220, I like my little iPhone 4 too! But I am not a tech. person so I think it works great. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2063.7 #83 8:07AM
I have the iphone5 with AT&T and it is tough to post times and pics in both parks. I always carry my Trent charger because my phone spends a lot of energy looking for towers and screen light. Better reception behind BTMRR, great signal in the wicked wench room on POTC, rest of dlp is a struggle now. In DCA it's ok down buena vista st but zilch in radiator springs. Signal picks up at screamer and only ok at goofy's sky school. I shut off the LTE and use 4g and it helps a little bit - Plumiegirl  10336.7 #9 7:31PM
I have an iPhone 5 with AT&T and had no issues at all tonight. :)πŸ‘ - moomooluvr  293.2 #1002 10:06PM
It was great for the first few weeks with LTE and the ip5. Now the weekends are pretty bad. - Tom  12774.0 #5 7:33AM
During week isn't bad as it is during weekends - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #27 7:59AM
Not really a tip but Sprint is experiencing outages of all service from Los Angeles area to Paso Robles. My work uses Sprint and its been awful! I hope that Sprint users are complaining! - tiggertwin  332.9 #764 8:08AM
It wasn't too bad earlier today making my rounds, only had issues around fantasyland so I had to leave and enter the times outside of the area. - chris.  2511.4 #63 12:04PM
The area around the castle is a dead zone - BaseballMickey  7967.8 #11 9:15PM
It wasn't bad in the morning but around 11 when crowds picked up te signal went down, I usually enter my stuff at the well since signal isn't too bad there. - chris.  2511.4 #63 8:50AM
The area around Tomorrowland Terrace is a dead zone, even for Verizon. It takes much longer to update times when the park is crowded because everyone's using the airwaves - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #220 12:01AM
Wow, I have tmobile and can always count on a signal by Tomorrowland Terrace. Maybe we have our own personal "zones' that our phones like! - secretagentangel  6978.4 #17 2:26AM
My MetroPCS phone was pretty much without coverage all day. Boo! - MrsMears  217.3 #1828 1:08AM
Yesterday I had a few points of low service but surprisingly I had great coverage on NOS in between the Jack Skellingtom store (can't remember the name now) and Cafe Orleans. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #350 9:57AM
Isn't that store pieces of eight? ;) - tuesday737  1291.5 #142 8:49PM
Is it that one? Haha. I thought that was the one at the exit of Pirates?? The one I'm talking about is the one next to where you can get the bread bowls. If it is Pieces of Eight I am way more oblivious to things than I thought. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - PiecesOf8  608.4 #350 8:57PM
Hmmm. yeah, I think you're right. Is that the" Bat enrouge " (sp) - tuesday737  1291.5 #142 9:14PM
Used to be Jack stuff in there but now it's all Minnie. I'll have to try and find the name now!!! - PiecesOf8  608.4 #350 10:21PM
Use mark the spot app all the time in the parks. If we all work together, we can help do great things. - kristian  2004.9 #89 1:01AM
Agree! Although sometimes mark the spot isn't functioning well lol - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #27 10:25AM
So what you're saying Marsha is the worse the service is, the fewer complaints they'll receive. 😜 - Tom  12774.0 #5 3:40PM
With all the people in the parks service has been bad. I have AT&T and usually have very little problem. Lately when I have trouble connecting I've turned Airplane Mode on and off. That's helped a bit. But the more people around using the towers the more clogged it gets- just like the freeways! - LilSterner  5828.4 #23 4:12PM
I have sprint and it's so horrible at the resort .... I have turned off my LTE and it still does nothing I have called and complained about my service and they do nothing :/ ...... I think I need to switch to Verizon it seems to work the best. ........ - Pixielynn  24.3 #6900 9:05AM
The last two times at the park I have not been able to get the lounge to load and that's on Verizon. I have, however, been able to check and enter wait times. - aidensmama  340.3 #734 12:40PM
Sprint doesn't have LTE here yet. I have sprint and use MW at the parks just fine. Certain areas are dead zones but for the most part I can go on. - RickChavez  3672.1 #43 1:07PM
@aidensmama. I have had the same issues with the same provider. What works for me now is to close the application completely then reopen it. hope it helps :) - pinkmonkeys  543.4 #403 6:34AM
Sprint has troubles around the resort because all the manager blackberries and such use sprint. - lostgirl7988  697.8 #298 7:48AM
I switched to verizon and never had any issue with signal or internet. I was amazed that i still had signal. Even on most of the rides. - gonzofam  303.5 #936 11:20AM
Me too! If my battery would live long enough, I'd post and update even more! - TinkerSchelle  2067.6 #82 1:08AM
The whole park just needs good strong Wi-Fi. If I could update wait times and post a few live photos with just one click, I would actually be spending LESS time looking at a little screen and more time enjoying the attractions. - TikiBird  174.3 #2389 6:45PM
How is Sprint reception in the park? I just got an iPhone a few months ago and chose sprint because it was the cheapest. Haven't been to the park since may so I'm curious how other sprint users are doing in Disneyland data-wise. - treradical  126.2 #3171 3:03AM
It's pretty bad. I am hardly ever able to connect to MW, and it's only gotten worse at every visit. - Sheilamo  318.2 #848 4:28AM
Simply beyond horrible. You might be able to make a call but you will not be able to use FB or MW unless you get really lucky. I've noticed the iphone 5 is actually worse than the 4 was. Because it is always looking for a signal, your battery will drain pretty quick also. I use my Sprint iphone as a camera only. Someone we always go with has Verizon on an iphone 4 and she always has service. - ssmatik  1.3 #65792 8:04AM
Verizon works great, even on crowded days I get reception. On the couple of occasions that I lost a signal, I just restart my phone and that does the trick. Sometimes I'll even take out the battery, and put it back in again and that defenitely works every time. One reason why I will never have an Iphone. - potatohead25  801.2 #242 7:33AM
Recently, I've been able to get a good connection in the parks using Verizon on my iPhone 4. Even when the park is almost to capacity, I can get a signal in areas where I couldn't get a signal at all in previous weeks. So maybe, Verizon has improved their signals around the parks. - BaseballMickey  7967.8 #11 11:53PM

Hi and welcome to Up Late with MouseWait Friday Night Live at the #MWMEETUP! Hi from Disneyland! How was your day? my question tonight is, if Walt was still here, what would you talk to him about? We are adding a Trivilator contest to Up late on Friday nights. So while we're talking , a mwer here at the meetup, will ask a trivia question. You can also add from home next week if you contact me and let me know the question. First to answer gets the most points.

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 June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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 #331 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7489 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #520 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  178.6 #2328 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1033 5:04PM
