im new to mw and have yet to make it to my 1st meetup..I would love for you guys to share your 1st mw meetup experience! ...

My first meetup was the birthday bash at the grand and my hands were shakey and nervous, even though at time I already met disneyRose and uscdisneyteacher I was beyond nervous. I checked in and recognize so many faces. I swallowed my fear and sat down and starting talking to ivegotnostrings and marina and Hollygolliath and her daughter. My hands were clammy still and I still felt uncomfortable but I decided I needed to introduce myself to more faces I recognized like Dave, h3d Sue, BooEve and everyone I admired and always wanted to meet. That night there was MWers everywhere, they would join to be one group, then separate into small groups. Laughter came easy, and everyone felt as if I've known them forever. I lost track of time and you end up closing the park and not even notice it. That was one of the best day/night I ever had. 99% of everyone I met that day I am still so close with and I love dearly. It was a scary time and I still was nervous at other meet ups but before I knew it, I felt everyone like a family and I couldn't wait to see them again. So yes, it's scary and it's out of your comfort zone and you know these are strangers but in reality they are friends you haven't met yet.... - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 12:15AM
Awesome ...very encouraging marshamouse! Thank you for sharing...glad im not alone in my shyness! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 12:27AM
We all felt it...shyness goes away after your second meetup, or so - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 12:42AM
She's a bully. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #155 8:54AM
Thanks MarshaMouse for sharing your experience. I feel exactly like that whenever I think of joining a meetup. I just have to take a deep breath and just go! - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #606 1:45PM
Yes do it! You're not going to best friends with everyone you meet but you'll find people you'll want to see again and very similar to you in personality. Put yourself out there...you won't regret it - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 2:35PM
😻😻😻 - BooEve123  800.9 #218 2:41PM
BooEve!! Miss your lovely face!! - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 6:23PM
My first meetup was at Trader Sam's this past May, I was so nervous. I was intimidated to walk up to the group but was happy that I did. I met Willierose, Cara, Bambi, the Evils, Madsdad and some other awesome peeps. I'm a shy person and still get nervous to meet new MWers but the more I introduce myself, the easier it gets. - Vegan7LuvsStitch  1025.0 #171 7:57PM
Thanks for sharing! Im not normally a "shy" but for some reason I feel shy when it comes to the meetups! Hopefully I'll get over it..seems smart to meet ppl who share my love for disney! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 8:01PM
I remember that meet up! πŸ˜‹ - PrincessMacy  536.5 #367 11:50PM
Oh yes! I met you princess Macy! You were so nice! 😊 - Vegan7LuvsStitch  1025.0 #171 7:01AM
That my first meet up as well😊 - Bambi.  605.0 #315 1:31PM
My first meetup was at the Birthday Bash Weekend this past October. I had only been on MW for a little over a week, so I actually didn't know anyone at all, even on the Lounge! Somehow I knew it would be a great time no matter what. I remember sitting near the strawberry patch in Tomorrowland, hoping that I was in the right place. A gentleman sat next to me but didn't say anything--he was busy doing something on his phone. After a few minutes he turned to me and said "Are you with MouseWait?" I replied "yes" and with an outstretched hand said "Nice to meet you. I'm Lennon, or StrawberryGuy." I ended up going to four meetups that day, and met some good friends like Pikarich, Stitchohana, BaseballMickey, TheNewTrent, LaTruce, the Strawberries, and many more. I instantly felt connected to all of you. Even though I am still relatively new, I feel like I'm surrounded by an extended family and I am looking forward to meeting more of you in the parks. Cheers and have a happy new year! :) - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #197 9:38AM
My first meet-up was with my hubby, the uppityempress. We spent the whole day in DCA, met Dave, auz and Michelledork, and did the WOC dinner package at trattoria. Over the weekend, we met all kinds of OG's and Untrustable threateners. A couple weeks later, I went to the first birthday at the hearthstone, where dahulamentren entered our lives. 😊 - bluefairy  643.3 #293 1:50PM
My first meet up was in January. I didn't know how it was supposed to go, so I just found the 12 people wearing the same shirt in front the Astroblasters. I gathered up the courage to say hi and introduce myself. Everyone was so happy and welcoming. The only problem was that it was a Family Reunion - not the meet up. Then I look around and recognize CaptainKirk - the host of the meet up. HakunaMatata and ReachForTheSky were there too. They were very nice and welcoming, then LillyBelle(?) showed up for her first meet up too. I was nervous, but I just wanted to meet new and random people. I liked it a lot, and started going to many more meet ups, and started to get to know the MW community. Then I made my first meet up, and I was excited to meet new people - turned out only iPocahontas showed up. A little later in the year, I decided to host my second meet up - only one person showed up, Crustle. I was discouraged, so I didn't host any more meet ups. Then I got suckered into co-hosting a meet up with ScubaSteve028, and many people started showing up (probably because the clever picture that was posted along with the meet up). At first, you may feel intimidated because it seems like everyone knows everyone - but the truth is, not everyone does. Everyone's there for the same reason - to meet new people and say hi to friends they've already made along the way. TIP: Be friendly and welcoming at the meet ups. If you see someone you haven't met, introduce yourself. They could be someone you see ONCE in your life, OR they can end up being a friend that you'll have forever. They could be someone who's been around for a long time, or they can be a nervous newcomer. Introduce yourself to those you haven't met yet - it makes the MW community special. - LaTruce  2264.7 #62 6:30PM
I've had a hard time going to meet ups because before I got a job three weeks ago my husband and I were able to go during the week so we had SoCal select passes. But with our work schedules now I think we can upgrade to the SoCal select so be able to go to some on Sundays now. We've tried to host a couple during the week and sometimes it just doesn't work out because so many people are at work. But I've met some wonderful MWers at the park just by chance! - MrsSchnooks  3229.7 #40 8:08PM
I have the premium one but I always seem to miss the meetups...dont know why I feel so timid... guess I just need to dive in feet first lol ...thank you for sharing! Who have u met? - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 8:13PM
SecretAgentAngel and DisneyMommy29 and DLHIFAN(I know I have her name wrong!) sorry - MrsSchnooks  3229.7 #40 11:45PM
Yup just take a deep breathe and jump into it - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 9:03AM
Anyone else care to share your stories? Shameless bump :) - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 11:34PM
My first meet-up was by accident in the elevator of Indy: donnievegas, The Evils, and StrawberryGuy (he was JediVeganStrawberryGuy back then). - Alicewhoareyou  2070.9 #69 11:41PM
Nice ... they say you should always have your "elevator" speech ready lol - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 11:49PM
I still remember DV had the flu. Hahahaha, poor DV. I didn't know why he was acting so weird. Well, he is weird...so... - Alicewhoareyou  2070.9 #69 11:51PM
That yake dedication...going to Disneyland witht the flu! Mmm I dont recommend this type of dedication... too many germs to spread lol - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 12:16AM
Oops meant takes* - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 12:16AM
My first meet up was last June on my daughters birthday I had family with me and left them for the meet up they aren't MW people and gave me a bad time but I really wanted to meet some new MW friends everyone was really nice my daughter got a birthday gift I got a gift and it's sad that I haven't been able to be part of another meet up that's a quick summery of my first and only meet up - lisaw  157.9 #2532 11:45PM
Ahhh sorry your family wasnt supportive...guess not every truly understands Disney magic! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 11:51PM
Hi there! Welcome! My first Meet Up was one I actually hosted at TOT! Not going to lie, I was kind of nervous because I had the thought of "what if people don't show?" -- but it was a great turn out and I met wonderful MWers during that I am lucky to call friends! (: - PrincessMacy  536.5 #367 11:49PM
Wow! You are super brave...1st meetup thrown by yourself. Thank you for sharing with me! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 12:11AM
My first meetup was YESTERDAY at the SF WD Museum; so many people to mention but the pics are still closeby-Miss Molly posted the group ones for us. LOVING these ladies already! What genuinely nice and FUN people! Can't wait to meet more of you!πŸ˜ƒ - TinkerSchelle  1785.9 #85 11:55PM
I saw those pics and it seemed to be lots of fun! How did you like the museum? Its awesome you were able to find Disney magic even when you are far from Disneyland! Thank you for sharing! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 12:13AM
It is really cool! I wish I could say I experienced more of it, but everyone was so nice it was hard not to focus on MWers and pay attention to the exhibits! And we missed the movie cuz Miss Molly, Kshea, Adventurer, yellow Tonka & I went off for a quick lunch! Wouldn't have changed a thing though! πŸ‘ - TinkerSchelle  1785.9 #85 12:23AM
Yesterday was my first meetup at the museum with TinkerShelle and the she gang! MWers are amazing people!! And it was great talking to Miss Mollie about her family history that's rooted so deep in Disney:) - hatgal76  444.5 #461 4:42AM
This was a blast. I believe everyone drove quite a few miles to get to SF. This wasn't my first, it was my second meet up. Everyone clicked after the awkwardness went away. Loved the experience meeting everyone. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1028.4 #169 8:17AM
Yep! That was my first one too! And I believe we are planning another one for the weekend of the Tink half marathon! Right? - MissMolly  1319.5 #120 1:48PM
Hoping its for the day before the run...because I may not be able to walk after! πŸ˜‚ Or maybe after for a drink or two would be better to hide the muscle pain! 😫 - Darlingwendi  1209.5 #134 2:53PM
You know we are Molly! πŸ‘. We will get a wheelchair if we have Wendi; you have to be there!!! So far me, Molly, Wendi...everyone welcome! Details to follow!✨ - TinkerSchelle  1785.9 #85 5:48PM
Molly-let's see if we can get Dave and the guys he featured in the NYE song to perform! We can save up RAK's and pay them!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - TinkerSchelle  1785.9 #85 5:53PM
My first meet up was when a beloved MW east coaster came to visit. It was nerve racking but a couple of us did a mini meet up and joined the big one together. Everyone makes you feel so welcome and as if you have always belonged. Now I have made some of the most amazing friends ever. - KissDclown  1089.1 #156 12:32AM
Kiss is right, if we see someone shy standing nearby, we bring them in and talk to them and make you feel like you belong. This community is very unique in that...everyone is welcoming in person and doesn't want to leave anyone out.... - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 12:40AM
Amen! - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #731 2:20AM
My first meetup was when I crashed the Xmas gift exchange last year, stole HanLostLeia's name tag and wore it the whole night having no idea what it meant. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #208 12:37AM
LOL I remember that πŸ˜‚ - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 12:47AM
And that is why I will forever call you imposter!! - Deltachiq  1228.0 #131 12:53AM
Buhahaah that is something my husband would do! Thank you for sharing your funny story! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 8:53AM
All I could remember is that you and Shaggy were acting like wierdos the whole night. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #155 8:57AM
My first meetup was actually the day before my birthday. It was an astro blasters meet up. I walked up, nervous of course and just started introducing myself. I don't think I ever hugged so many strangers in my life, but immediately I felt the love! Honestly we want to meet you just as much as you want to meet us! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 12:52AM
Yeah maybe if I just start hugging people it will kill the nervousness...I feel excited to start meeting mwers after reading all these wonderful stories...thank you for sharing - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 8:57AM
My first meetup was also the gift exchange last Christmas! I remember calling my mom on the way there And she freaked out that I was meeting up with people I met on the Internet! She just didn't get it. Lol. I was so nervous but it was so fun And I met some awesome people that I still hang out with that day - Deltachiq  1228.0 #131 12:59AM
My first actual meet up was at trader SAMs for rays bday it was funny good time that will haunt me for awhile. but i met so many cool people and I guess I broke the ice with some people there. Lol I knew mwers before that but by themselves trader sams I believe was my first meet up, - Hendizl  2768.0 #43 1:04AM
Don't worry, i think it will only haunt you for about 10 min ;) - MaidMiriam  308.0 #821 1:51AM
Great meetup! Lol - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #208 9:28AM
My first meet up was a mini meet up hosted by Deltachiq. i didn't know anyone at all. I just went up to one of them (lilo84) and asked if she was with MW. I also met spaceRAYnger. They met my daughter before she was even walking. Now, our kiddos run around together :) it's amazing how from that little meet up, it turned into great friendships, for both my daughter and I - MaidMiriam  308.0 #821 2:00AM
I miss you both! - Deltachiq  1228.0 #131 6:56AM
Like Vegan7LuvsStitch mentioned before, that Trader Sam's meetup was also my first. And no matter how old I get, the shy, nervous, insecure high school girl still lives inside me. Thoughts run through your head: will they like me? Am I cool enough? Did I say the right thing? But I have simply been welcomed with open arms by everyone I've met. Be yourself is the best advice. The kindness in this community is great, and I have been fortunate to meet many wonderful MWers. Hope to meet you soon - Willierose  2270.6 #60 3:33AM
Well, I've never been to one in the parks but my first one was an oregon meet up at the disney store. I felt a little lame not being able to relate to them in going to the parks as much anymore but they were amazing people and it was super fun! - Poisen_Ivy  282.2 #988 4:41AM
My first meetup was an accident. The hojo was giving away a gift card after the 10th anniversary ceremony of sept 11. At the same time, the Sandcars, Dave, Suuzinoc, Lilsterner, and a few others converged and we went off to ride a few rides. All 5 of them are great friends of mine even still - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #180 4:43AM
It's been too long since I've seen you around. See you at the half marathon! - LilSterner  5066.1 #21 9:16AM
My first meetup was one that Deltachiq & DuckieFan2 (PrincessDuckie) had hosted at the Jungle Cruise. So glad to have met Deltachiq as we're friends now. It was so strange introducing myself to strangers, not knowing if they even know who you are. I also got to meet MarshaMouse, ooohtoodles, AAD247, HannLeia, who were also so nice & welcoming. Later that night at an Astro Blaster meetup I got to meet Dave & SpaceRAYnger. I must admit its still awkward gong but the more you meet the easier it gets. Also becomes more fun as you look forward to seeing your friends and making new ones ;) - PinkElephants  745.7 #238 7:19AM
My first meetup was actually in Fresno. It was near Halloween, and was supposed to be a costume meetup. We pulled up to the park and were like , "Oh crap." We didn't see anybody else in costume. I was head-to-toe Cruella, with my husband as Jasper and my son as Pongo in tow. Then thankfully, I saw Armenda. I'd never been so happy to see an adult dressed as Snow White in all my life. We met so many awesome (though costume-less) MWers that day, including Calicanuk and MrsIncredible. We've done a few more Fresno meet ups since then, and even summoned the courage to host one last October in the parks. Worst-case-scenario, you go to one and spend a small portion of your day in awkward silence. But best case (and much more likely) scenario, you make lifelong friends and reaffirm your love for disney with some of the coolest people you'll ever meet. Trust me, if I (as Cruella) can do it, so can you! - LittleAprilShowers  562.8 #340 10:20AM
Β°oΒ°WelcomeΒ°oΒ°. - E-Ticket  1402.0 #110 10:26AM
Warm welcome to you! My first official meet up was at this years birthday bash. Although I had met other Mwers before through random Raks, and the fantasmic glow with the show event (wasn't an official meet up), that night made me realize what I've found and I am NEVER letting go!(so your stuck with me :-P) I have been to a few meet ups after that, and all I have to say is go! Its a life changing experience that I wouldn't trade for all the Disney magic in the world. The people I have met, the fun experiences I will cherish for a lifetime. I can not wait to cause more shinanegans at the next meetup :-) - mini_MINNIE  1087.0 #158 10:57AM
Omg thank you sooo much to all of you that have shared your stories with me... I am excited to start meeting everyone and experiencing disney magic with new friends! Seriously thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement and sharing your awesome stories with me! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 1:29PM
It's funny bc as awkward as you may feel, you are all already connected by Mr. Walt Disney πŸ˜„I remember having an awesome moment at the museum pointing something out...I looked up and was like, "oooh! I don't have to pretend I'm not as excited as I really am. We can all dork out together!!" And I guess my very first meetup was meeting Dave and having him take my cousin and I to Club 1901...and we didn't even know what it was! - MissMolly  1319.5 #120 1:54PM
My 1st meetup was Leap Day at the AstroBlasters, that was hosted by VFX. Soooo many MW'rs. I was shy but introduced myself to SueBayou and she was very sweet and welcoming amongst all the chaos. I met CaraMiaPooh and Sparrow, MelB, Fredo and Alex and a several others. Had run ins at the park that week with several MW'rs and everyone was very, VERY nice! I wish I live closer so I could attend more and get to know everyone better. There are many I would still love to meet. You'll fit right in! Hello and Welcome!!! - melissa_ficent  318.6 #760 2:16PM
Thank you for posting this PrincessLaShell! I am also new here and when I started seeing posts and pictures about meet ups it made me nervous! Don't get me wrong I love making new friends but it is hard to go up to someone you don't know and say hello. At least it is for me LOL!! So hearing everyone's stories made me feel a lot better about it and I see that I am not the only one feeling nervous. I don't know when I will be ready to go to a meet up or even able to make it to one but I will definitely try :-) Thank you everyone for your stories. You all made me feel so much better about meet ups and can't wait to meet you all :-) - MrsTinkPan  9.7 #10476 6:18PM
You are welcome...I felt so lucky to have so many people share their memories! - PrincessLaShell  15.5 #7878 4:51PM

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 August 31, 2015
Look for light crowds this week until Labor Day weekend begins on Friday. Disneyland and California Adventure will close early for the second week in a row (DL 9pm, DCA 8pm). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 50s (approx 60% capacity) -- that means it was a very slow week. Even Labor Day last year (which fell on the 1st) averaged in the mid 70s, which is light for a holiday. Now that most schools are back in session, we should see lighter crowds at the Parks until Halloweentime begins! 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 Aug 31, 2015 9:23PM



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  495.8 #400 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7168 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  399.9 #532 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  162.3 #2469 5:08AM

summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4833.7 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.4 #10635 9:33AM
