Ok, I know that rich made a similar post but I dont sugar cote things and here is my two cents as well...As you guys can see there are a lot of brand new users coming on board and as much as you guys want to think they are trolls they are new users. You have to remember that the Holidays were just a few days ago and a lot people got new smart phones for either the first time or got a phone that can now use MouseWait and they are excited to use it. Can we all just lighten up for a bit? I know we can all tell by their rank that they are new and you guys including myself need to cut these people some slack...There is a way about telling somebody to read the FAQ sounding like a complete jerk...I know that we all including myself love to jump in with the sarcasm but we don't need to make examples out of these noobs to try and show off...Lets try and have fun and be welcoming...Once they get the hang of it then they are fair game LOL.....Who knows one of these new people could end up being your best friend some day

Well said Dave, thanks for posting this. You never know who is on the other end, it could be someone who is younger, someone who just lost a loved one, a person with a learning disability, or someone who has watched the MW story videos and wants to be a part of the community. Just because they don't have the best communication skills and they're not social media savvy doesn't make them a troll. We've had our share of trolls and weirdos over the past 3 years, but they are extremely rare compared to the massive number of legitimate users. MouseWait can't thrive and grow if it's an exclusive club, it needs to be open to all Disney fans who follow the rules. - Admin 7:54AM
Thank you for stating this. I couldn't agree more! I think giving the benefit of the doubt and being kind is just always a much nicer way to live. If someone is really a 'troll' or you just think they are, please just ignore them. You may be wrong. And to be intentionally mean to someone who doesn't deserve it is just plain nasty and uncalled for. And surely not the true spirit of this app and what Admin had in mind when it wss created. - MeridaFan  4244.2 #38 10:56PM
Agree 100% some ppl are wasting to much energy on trying to expose these "trolls" and forget what this site is about - Snow33  195.2 #2122 12:10AM
Yup, oh well, so someone seems like they returned, if they aren't hurting anyone or doing harm, just let it go - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 7:10AM
Thanks for posting this. I was new last year, and I was scared!! Lol. People shouldn't feel dread when posting. - PeachKay  311.1 #895 12:35PM
Thank you for that. One of the reasons I don't post or look on MW as much as I like is because of the some of the sarcasm and rude remarks I read on newer member's posts. I understand there are close friends and inside jokes. I also know that, for some people, this might be one of their only forms of social interaction. I'm trying to stay in the mindset that a little kindness can go a long way, whether that be an in-park RAK, a smile at a stranger or just a kind word posted or said. *stepping off soapbox and disappearing into the churro-eating crowd* - nerdgirl  86.0 #3928 2:50PM
I 100% agree with you. Now that I have time for MW, I have wanted to post more; however, I have been really intimidated by the cliques on here as well. I understand that people are friends and what not, but new people don't understand all of the inside jokes or sarcastic humor. I'm sure when all of you seasoned members joined, you were welcomed with the utmost kindness and politeness. Please remember to use good manners when you write on a new member's post. Thank you. - Princess_Pirate  8.0 #13394 3:44PM
^^^ what they said - TeacherluvsMickey  33.3 #5909 11:10PM
Thank you for saying this. I've felt badly about some of the comments I've read lately, but I'm still fairly new and wouldn't dare call anyone out. This app is supposed to be uplifting and there's too many things in this world that tear us down. Remember, disgruntled users will rate this app poorly and admin doesn't deserve that. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  694.8 #304 11:29PM
Oh and I'm not referring to the sarcasm and friendly razzing. You have that, and need that, in every family. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  694.8 #304 12:22AM
This issue has gotten out o hand and has turned into witch hunts. There is a lot of bullying going on and I'm shocked that a simular official statement hasn't been made by admin. I joined this app long ago mostly for it's welcoming community. Now a lot of the comments I have seen sicken me. I mean do u guys honestly believe you should be talking to someone who has violated the age policy in the manner you have? - dsmdanny  144.9 #2874 5:15AM
I can't imagine any reasonable adult speaking to a child like that - dsmdanny  144.9 #2874 5:15AM

Yep! And you can always RP, block, and report if necessary. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  641.5 #335 11:13PM
As a new member a bit timid about posting, this makes me feel a bit better! We'll get the hang of it. Thanks! - all4uth  254.1 #1374 12:20AM
Thank you for saying this Dave...I love to jump in and join the fun but am happy with making generic nice comments and 'thank yous' until I feel more confident. :) - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #633 6:48AM
Thank you for this post. Very well said. Just remember every single one of us started out new at some point. - ShannonAzevedo  157.1 #2677 12:20PM

^ yep! - OhanaPhoto  6474.8 #21 6:25PM
Dave, thank you so much for posting this. One of the reasons we all like you so much (besides the fact you are a banana), is that you are humble and can read the temperature in the lounge, and balance the shenanigans with good nature. I personally appreciate this post and remember back when I was a noob and had my share of faux pas. You were one of the first MWers I met, so personable, and one of the reasons I stay here. Thanks again. - Alicewhoareyou  2724.3 #55 1:08PM

I'm still waiting to have a faux pas! bahahahahaha! JK-had a few of those FOR SURE! Today we coined it "pulling a Tinker" 😜 if you can't laugh at yourself-all that's left to do is cry! (and that gives me a headache!). PS DAVE-I believe I am bumping your post at this VERY INSTANT! πŸ‘Š - TinkerSchelle  2069.4 #84 11:00PM

Oh wow, that was nice...its been fun getting to know you and your husband. wish I saw you two more often - Dave   13820.4 #4 11:03PM
Unfortunately, I've been on the recieving end of this type of situation, and it sucks. I can tell from experience that if you feel like you're being attacked. Speak up. It won't help to get angry. - Eticket15  72.9 #4214 1:58PM
This isn't the first, nor probably the last time you give this speech...we constantly need to remember this. We were all new at one time and we just want to feel welcomed - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 11:43PM
Very true indeed...this amazing community goes through cycles of having folks getting used to one another and then welcoming new folks...We need to view it like a teacher would..welcoming new students at the start of each new term yet still maintaining a great line of communication with those one has taught before...we all should strive to be the best representatives this amazing family can have :-) - uscdisneyteacher  8637.4 #10 11:53PM
Well said. Sometimes I cringe a little at some of the "greetings" the newbies get. - chancesr  245.3 #1475 7:16PM

I posted something sorta like this last month. It caused somewhat of a ruckus but I learned a lot from it. To sum it up, MW wouldnt be what it is whithout all the jokes and sarcasm. I wouldn't have stuck around if it wasn't for all the shenanigans around here. I even set myself up for some of it. And if at some point your the one being "picked on" don't be a sissy about it and enjoy it. That's our way of spreading love around here. If your a newbie and feel like your getting picked on, don't worry about it, that's our weird way of welcoming you into the family - phillip...  1371.5 #138 12:12AM
BTW I'm still a newbie and only a few months old so I may not have the seniority to be throwing in my 2 cents but I did, and as santamike always said, you got a problem with that? 😜 - phillip...  1371.5 #138 12:17AM
I'm glad you stuck around!! same with a lot f people that had the same thing happen...its easy for us to get caught up in it and its dumb. its also dumb that whenever there is an influx of new people people think its all trolls, yes we have been hurned in the past but for the most part the good out weighs the bad and there are a lot of wonderful MouseWaiters and I think that we all know that and if that was not the case none of us would be around still - Dave   13820.4 #4 12:19AM
Me again, I forgot to agree with Dave, which I do. We need to be nice in all our shenanigan doings - phillip...  1371.5 #138 12:24AM
Im not new to mw but i don't post because when i have i get rude comments. I gave up but i do enjoy the pics and update. - miss_rachel  120.3 #3305 4:41AM
I am new here. Not a troll or here to cause problems. I haven't wanted to post or anything due to reading some posts that weren't very nice. But I can't sit back and not give everyone a chance.I love Disney like all of you and hope in the long run I can make some friends. Just please give me a chance to get to know my way around. ;-) - LuvsTigger  1675.8 #108 3:55PM
Well, let me welcome you to the family! Hang around and start posting. I know i personally like new members coming aboard. Have fun an mousewait with a smile :) - Slotherini  1079.8 #180 3:59PM
Don't worry you'll be fine - CaptnSparrow  679.5 #315 4:03PM
I can relate to this... Except that I'm not new here. I just rarely post. It feels difficult to walk into a tight community. I appreciate the park updates and of course the wait times. - jaydeetea  10.0 #11565 5:52PM
welcome! - OhanaPhoto  6474.8 #21 2:55PM
One thing newer members need to know is that this community is very protective of each other. When someone comes aboard and they may start acting suspicious then the others may be trying to warn everyone because unfortunately there are those who join to try and take advantage of the kindness of the members πŸ˜” - PinkElephants  745.7 #280 4:04PM
Think before you speak. Play nice with others and Treat people like you want to be treated. I agree with Dave they might become a friend, I have met quite a few thru this app. - MeridasHair  346.5 #720 6:55PM
I have only been part of MW for a few months. I am learning & still can't find lots of things.I am very happy when I am helped. I do hate it when people are not very nice. - Winnie111286  19990.4 #3 11:57PM

Thank you! I know I personally won't get back to the parks for months as I live a ways away, but I am really enjoying MW and all you guys have to offer. I just may have an itsy bitsy rank for a while. - CheshireCam  200.2 #2060 11:13PM
You can still increase your mouse rank by doing the trivia challenge on Facebook, it doesn't have to stay itsy for forever. - MrsWalt  109.3 #3522 4:00AM
Thanks. :) good tip. - CheshireCam  200.2 #2060 2:20PM
You're right. Sometimes I need to remind myself to be kind to others in every aspect of my life. I really don't ever want to hurt anyone's feelings but sometimes I can be a brat. - aidensmama  340.3 #738 11:16PM

So well said; there is a reason this app is in the top 50--IT'S THE HAPPIEST APP ON EARTH! PS -thanks for people being kind to me too! You guys are great and I hope to meet a bunch of you tomorrow at the meetup! 😘 (l like the blow-kiss face lately!) - TinkerSchelle  2069.4 #84 11:53PM

Agreed, this happens a lot during holidays when lots of people are going to the parks or are planning trips and there is an in flood of new users. Some stick around some wont but we shouldn't try to run them off! - akpoppins  263.8 #1288 12:15AM
Thanks Dave I think it was nice of you to step up and say something I am still learning the ropes around here. But I truly enjoy getting on here and getting feedbacks from everyone and feel like we are a family that have something we all enjoy talking about and that is Disney. - nadiast70  5.7 #17468 2:39AM
Thanks for that post, Dave. I'm still learning the ropes, and I feel like it'll take me a while because I'm just not on as much as others. I have to keep moving if I want to have all that I eat! Anyway, thanks again! - DPTflower  24.4 #6914 3:45AM
Thank you for posting this! Mw is a wonderful app that has a wonderful community that is supportive, generous, and kind. I would hate for people who have just joined to get on here and not be able to experience what this app is capable of. And when someone comes on here and gets painted as a troll even if they aren't, not only does it effect that person and how they perceive the app, but it might effect admin in the sense that the person writes a bad review about mw and that isn't fair to admin who has worked so hard on this app - Queenof2princesses  259.6 #1328 5:58AM
Well said Dave! One of the best posts ever!!! When MW becomes negative I don't even go on , read posts, or participate for a while. That is where I have been. It is so ugly to see. Definitely not the purpose of the app. - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #647 7:39AM

Excellent post, I share the same feelings as many have stated that at times it is a bit intimidating. However, there are more happy moments than rude moments. Thank you everyone for contributing as MW is my "go to" app while in the parks 😊 - gabrimic  99.5 #3687 11:50PM

Thank you so much for this post! I am one of the noobs and I was a bit intimidated at first (and not gonna lie still kind of am LOL!)but many of you made me feel very welcome and for that I am truly grateful but I did see some not so very nice posts on other peoples posts or pictures and it scared me a bit and also disappointed me because from what I had seen so far everyone was very friendly. But I do know that even though some people weren't very nice most of you are so that's why I am still here. Thank you for making us newbies feel welcome once again :- - MrsTinkPan  9.7 #11786 6:40PM

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  643.7 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7517 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  446.1 #522 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  182.2 #2293 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.6 #1045 5:04PM
