23. MW101 w/SICπŸ€: {Photo etiquette} We've been seeing for some time now in the lounge, that we have become a little sloppy with the MW Rules and FAQs---that we are all so quick to tell new users to read. I thought it would be nice to review what Admin asks of us when it comes to posting photos. πŸ”΄We are asked to refrain from posting photos that are not ours. I understand that we all often post something from the Disney Parks blog or the like when reporting exciting up coming events or news. In this case it is vital that we give credit where it is due. Not giving credit for others photos could cause problems for MW. πŸ”΄Please remember that when posting more then one photo that is ether not yours or that is not live, please consider using photo collage apps (PicStich, Diptic and many others. They are great fun! haha). : ) πŸ”΄We LOVE live photos and would hate for the efforts of those in the parks to get pushed to the next page and might not be seen. It states in the Rules and FAQs that any post not following the rules can and will be removed. Thank you so much for your time!! : )

LittleMermaidLover, I understand where you're coming from but inside jokes and friendships are why most of us stick around this app! (And why soooo many others have left...they want to joke around with their friends and are a little annoyed by people constantly telling them to not act like friends) the thing is...a lot of us have become friends. Real life friends! I'd say if it makes you feel excluded, maybe ask! or like Friendly Mouse says, do a little research! I joined just under a year ago, didn't get a lot of the banter but enjoyed people's personalities so much that I made an effort to figure it out. I guess I'm trying to say that the lounge would be a boring, vanilla place if no one could ever mention a funny thought, inside joke or mention something funny from the past. Is that how you are with your friends?!? We've actually gone through a lot together!! Every single one of us is waiting with open arms for a new person to bond with and share things with...you just have to be willing to bend a tiny bit and shake things off sometimes. I really don't think that's too much to ask. - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 3:22PM

Well said, Miss Molly!! I only get to DLAND once a year. I love getting on this site and living vicariously through those who are there! - SmallWorldSister  15.0 #8024 8:11PM
I like wine 🍷 and thanks, SmallWorldSister - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 8:18PM
Trust me I don't take it personally! Like I posted to meridafan, I was just posting an observation that's all. Everyone has chimed in with their observations so I was doing the same thing since everyone is so open here. Just wanted my opinion heard which I don't think is asking much either 😊 - LittleMermaidLover  290.5 #918 10:17PM

Can we also add that not every post needs a picture?!?! - LilSterner  5065.5 #21 12:30AM
Please!!!!! - DisneyFanZoe  1236.6 #129 9:09AM
And now ban Throwback Thursday too? That's what Instagram is for. Just creates too many posts to sift through. - LilSterner  5065.5 #21 9:47AM
Yes and yes! - cesium55  531.6 #371 9:50AM
I'll add it 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.5 #27 10:28AM
I love the addition of the dots too. Helps to emphasize the different points! - LilSterner  5065.5 #21 12:36PM
Maybe we need another retro pic day for everyone to get it out of their systems. - Armenda  1154.7 #145 9:13PM
Oh I would love a Retro Pic day! Great idea! - Scrumpy_N_PansShadow  37.0 #5139 1:28AM
I also think that when a new person asks a question, people shouldn't jump in with their witty answers that are inside jokes only certain members know. Sometimes I see a question I also would like to know about but people start doing their banter back and forth with their friends completely ignoring the question - LittleMermaidLover  290.5 #918 2:46PM
Like someone saying Buttercup? Sorry I do agree but I just could not help myself. A lot of these "inside" jokes are all posted on mousewait. I normally will try and search to find out what they are talking about if I was not on at the time that said event occurred. - friendlymouse  727.9 #251 2:56PM
That is just going to happen on any social media, and it is best just to take it as good fun. some people take it personal when it is not, many people here have known each other for years so they joke. best to have a great sense of humor and join right in. I have read my share of posts wrong before too and almost (i did say almost,lol) got butthurt but I realized I needed to just read for awhile. and if someone wants to make fun of me, thanks, it will make me laugh too. don't worry, all new people eventually learn all the fun stuff, that is why it is so cool that this app teaches us all so much. - secretagentangel  2193.8 #64 2:59PM
I agree it is going to happen regardless and I'm not hurt at all, just wanted to remind everyone it can make people feel excluded! Maybe just acknowledge the question at least before going off on random tangents? - LittleMermaidLover  290.5 #918 3:08PM
I think we are a bit of a random tangent type of group, lol, but answering the question first is always best, then the person asking can either read the rest or go read the next post. - secretagentangel  2193.8 #64 3:11PM
But unless we all remain perfect strangers with no attempt at getting to know one another or forming friendships, this is really a given. And most of that back and forth stuff generally is under one thread, so if you don't understand, it is easy to just skip over. I don't understand some stuff sometimes (Shh! Don't tell my husband or kids I said that!), but I either figure I don't have to understand everything, or I could ask a question to help me understand. Anyway, don't know if I'm helping or not, but we're all human and none of us is perfect. We're just doing the best we can. - MeridaFan  3585.2 #37 4:39PM
I totally get that meridafan, and I agree. I was just voicing an observation I've made just like others have done about what photos should or shouldn't be posted. As a newbie, it's hard to feel like I can jump in sometimes. Thank you for posting a respectful response! - LittleMermaidLover  290.5 #918 5:38PM
Also see my response above :) πŸ‘† - MissMolly  1319.4 #119 7:33PM
I understand this totally. I asked what "RAK" was because I couldn't find it in the MW FAQS. Some of the responses, not all, were sarcastic as if I was supposed to know. - Tinkerluvr  83.4 #3757 8:34PM

Am I the only one who can just scroll past the things I don't care to see and move on? I know there are rules for a reason but it isn't going to ruin my mood if I see someone posting a photo that isn't live or seen as acceptable. - lizzie2thelou  49.9 #4585 5:47PM
I scroll past things I do not care to see either. - VfxGenie  1556.0 #99 5:54PM

If you think I do these for my own benefit, you are greatly mistaken! These are meant to be helpful tips and reminders on how to use MW! And these are supported by Admin. You could have just scrolled by this as well! πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.5 #27 5:58PM

after scrolling through the lounge this morning i've come to the realization that 100% of the people who need to read this have not. - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 8:31AM
So it's ok to post my picture of a coffee spill I had yesterday that formed a hidden mickey? 😝 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.3 #176 8:42AM

I relized that a long time ago πŸ˜”. Figures πŸ˜„. But it's still good to post so when we delete thir post we can go, "bump. See, it was posted and clearly stated in the rules!" Haha πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.5 #27 10:22AM
A 100% is a lot. It assumes facts not in evidence. I for one did read the rules because they suggest it for your 1st introductory post. I was welcomed and complimented on my 28yrs as a guest. - Midasgold  627.0 #303 7:20PM
and if you read the date on these posts you would realize this is from six months ago and that the rules of the lounge have change since then. thanks for reading them though. - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 10:46PM
@Midasgold If I may make a suggestion, you may want to just pause a moment before posting or maybe just read through the lounge some because you are coming across in a way that you may not realize is not positive. Just a helpful suggestion. - MrsSchnooks  3229.5 #40 10:58PM
A pleasant reminder - thank you :) I know that I have other apps (Instagram, Facebook occasionally) that I can spam with non-live photos (and I do, frequently) and photos of things not Disney related (shocker I know, lol). I know we all love to share with THIS family, because we really are something special - but somethings are better left off MW :) xo - Lola027  452.5 #455 11:40PM

Volcom, saa - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5641.3 #17 2:18PM
but how do we nicely say, hey 8 photos of _______ are too much, the best I can see is please do a collage or something. I try not to post more than four, but if it is a special occasion (like johhny depp, heehee) there can be more. I think the bottom line is what my teacher used to yell "COMMON SENSE, PEOPLE" every time we did not use our brains. If your brain says maybe not, then maybe not. very tricky, because with photos, some people can get intimidated too to not post when they see so many great ones. we need a happy balance. Thanks for the bump by the way. - secretagentangel  2193.8 #64 2:35PM
I agree. I like to post a lot in the park when we visit, but we live in Washington and are not there everyday. It gets frustrating when others who are at the parks everyday bump others pics with their 10,000 pics. Use some common sense. We enjoy the pics but we do want others to see the ones we share too. - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #128 2:52PM
Unfortunately not everyone has common sense - Bambi.  605.0 #315 2:57PM

Okay, lets call it uncommon sense, only for those intelligent and crazy enough to have it!!!:D - secretagentangel  2193.8 #64 12:13AM

You can make a post about it, but do not include a googled pic or one that has nothing to do with it, like, say, 7 churros next to a DoleWhip . πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚XD x3 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5641.3 #17 2:58PM

This has been a long time coming. It seemed that once the holidays began there was a free for all with non-Disney related pics which started with Halloween house decorations and it went from there. Thank you for reeling this in. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #136 7:29AM
I would like to point out that MrsStrawberry posted a fairly lengthy and thorough plea to adhere to the FAQ guidelines on this. This was posted about 2 weeks ago. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #136 7:58AM
It probably didn't have a picture, therefore missed and pushed down the line by photo spam - cesium55  531.6 #371 9:53AM

Maybe I'm not understanding, does this mean that Throwback Thursday photos are no longer permitted? - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #970 11:34AM
They are generally frowned upon because they are not live. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #488 11:36AM
No, there is nothing in the Rules about retro Disneyland pics. 😊 A lot of people really like seeing them. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.5 #27 11:37AM
I suppose personally I would rather see tbt photos from inside the parks than any more nail photos. 😝 - MousekaNinja  422.4 #488 11:42AM
MSG you put it better, more along the lines of what I was thinking. Thank you. I stand corrected. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #488 11:44AM
Ok, I think that's where the confusion was. Since the FAQs say that photos posted in the lounge should be live. So as I understand it now...photos should be live UNLESS it is a Throwback Thursday photo posted on Thursday? Correct? - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #970 11:51AM

Also, on occasion, admin has called up a "retro day" in the lounge. Those are the best time to post the authentic retro pics from your personal stash. - bluefairy  643.3 #293 4:52PM
Aaaaand...throwback or retro doesn't mean last week or last month, maybe not even last year. Lets have some standards, people! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.3 #293 4:53PM

I don't mind seeing old pics of what DL and DCA used to look like. I know I've one through my old pics and reminisced, but I don't think that people need to search for a pic just to post for "throwback Thursday" which was started as an Instagram thing anyway. But that's just my opinion. - LilSterner  5065.5 #21 3:18PM

DRT Is supposed to be actual live pictures from the parks. However everybody's MW defaults to Disneyland talk. So a lot of people don't change where the post is going. - MrsSchnooks  3229.5 #40 3:29PM
Fisney talk is for anything Disney related. Real Time is for posting pics/ news at parks - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5641.3 #17 3:29PM

I have been posting pictures from a recent trip (that I took) to DL Talk--taking care not post them to DL Real-Time. However, the FAQ's *do* say that DL Talk pictures "should primarily be live pictures from the Disneyland Resort". My take on it was that this (how I was doing it) was fine, but that say taking a picture of a Mickey Mouse T-shirt in a department store was not. Am I wrong here? - #1DisneyDad  238.4 #1430 3:49PM
MouseWait has always been about live pics, it's not an Instagram or Facebook so 'not live' pics should be done in moderation as to not bury the live pics. Most just post live pics in DL Talk as the line between live and talk is blurred. Yes, birthday cakes, Mickey shaped Target stuff should be in The Hub which is another chat part of the lounge. - Linzee  1122.7 #150 3:56PM
You are right. Here's a way to describe it, from most appropriate, to least: 1. Live pic from park 2. Non-live pic, but still in park 3. Non-live Disney shirt in department store 4. Hidden Mickey made of cheerios in your cereal bowl. :) - Alicewhoareyou  2070.8 #69 3:58PM
I've always gone by what if everyone posted whatever I was posting rule. If I'm posting live or semi live, and everyone else was, than that would be exactly what the app is for. If I'm posting pic of my trip to target where I saw mickey or my hidden mickey in my lemon, and then everyone else did too, then the lounge would be full of non live and really non helpful pics. that's why I mostly stick to live. - madsdad  1868.1 #81 4:03PM
Also, kudos to VeganDisneyDad for asking and being so open to feedback! - Alicewhoareyou  2070.8 #69 4:28PM
Agreed Alice! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5641.3 #17 4:37PM
Except that the hidden Mickey's in Cheerios are expressly forbidden. So that should not be posted at all! - MeridaFan  3585.2 #37 4:43PM
Yes, maybe I provided a bad example. lol. How about the hidden poohs in the M&F parking structure? - Alicewhoareyou  2070.8 #69 4:44PM
...or the water droplets from your shower curtain? - Alicewhoareyou  2070.8 #69 4:46PM
While I get the spirit of the original thread comment, I would also like to point out that some of the most stunning pics on DL Talk aren't strictly live either (as it takes time to process them). Despite this, I love seeing them and sure hope that they continue. - #1DisneyDad  238.4 #1430 7:46PM
I don't get a couple of things and have been here for a while and made a few posts. When you view the hub or Disneyland talk or live many of the same posts are on each section. So if you post something on the hub if might also show on Disneyland talk? Oh and I have posted a couple of Throwback Thursday things and didn't realized that they weren't suppose to be done on MW but they have received the most attention then my other posts - Goofytom  1218.5 #132 4:28PM
Every post gets fed to the hub from DL Talk or DL Live :) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5641.3 #17 4:31PM
And Events - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5641.3 #17 4:31PM
I don't think throwback stuff is against the rules,and it seems that people really enjoy them. I especially enjoy the ones where I learn something new about Disney history. When you are in the hub you can see all the lands, or if you just want to see Disney only stuff you can be in dl talk, or if you only want to see live pics you can go to real time land. Today real time land is also black pearl land which is exceptionally pleasing to me. - madsdad  1868.1 #81 4:31PM
DL Talk and Real-time automatically feed into The Hub so some posts can be found in multiple lands. As for "Throwback Thursday" it has been accepted in the past (but I haven't been on for a couple of weeks so maybe people have changed their minds). - LilSterner  5065.5 #21 4:32PM
The hub is all posts together. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #140 4:32PM
DL Live feeds into DL Talk, all lands feed into The Hub. We like retro pics. - Linzee  1122.7 #150 4:32PM
As for Throwback Thursday ou might be referencing my comment above. Just because I don't like how every Thursday people were posting pics from one year (or even a few weeks prior) doesn't mean that others don't. People do like retro pics. - LilSterner  5065.5 #21 4:36PM
TBT/ retro equals a time when we cannot believe we actually wore that stuff. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5641.3 #17 4:39PM
So is it okay if I post a TBT pic 2 or 3 times a month if they are like my other TBT posts, the really old ones from the 60's or 70's? I don't ever want to annoy anyone. πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  872.8 #198 4:49PM

Ok makes sense now. Hope you all don't think it was a stupid question. My posts have been Disney related so guess I've been posting in the right spot. Thanks! - Goofytom  1218.5 #132 5:01PM

Well said and thank you SIC for all you do for MW. Every once In a while, folks need to be reminded. No bad intentions here just reminder. - NascarDave  311.2 #791 6:09PM
I think the heat has gotten to everyone today ..... Geez what makes this lounge so good is the "freedom" to be open about the one thing we all love , Disney ! As long as no profanity or inappropriate pics etc I say don't try and control the excitement let it happen 😎 - polo33  65.6 #4129 8:01PM

Technically isn't this post/photo violating MW policy? Besides it's blowing my "live" feed fix (before you jump down my throat, I kid . . . Mostly). - dizneedude  899.3 #186 8:19PM
The MW101 posts were made a long time ago. I would say they're kind of grandfathered in to not apply to the new policy? - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 8:25PM
No. I used to do MW helps, there are 20 something. This is an old post. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.5 #27 8:26PM
And a long time as in before the rules were changed πŸ˜‚ - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 8:26PM
In all honesty SIC is in charge per Admin to do MW 101. Right now the lounge is in dire need of a reminder if what is ok to post. I know you are joking but if you didn't know I wanted to explain it a little more. 😊 That is why this is here. - MrsSchnooks  3229.5 #40 8:27PM
The lounge is even more wound tight these days than they used to be, so these would be beyond pointless now. No listens to good advise πŸ˜‚ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.5 #27 8:28PM
Has nothing to do with "new rules" - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.5 #27 8:34PM

just a thank you again to sweet_irish_cream, you are awesome, and doing these are timeless, even with people finding their own personal reason to not take the great advice. Anyone who is trying to help out the community, new people and veterans, is wonderful in my book.

Bumping this.  It seems like lately there are things being posted in DL Talk that should really go into the hub.  I hate to see live pictures get buried so quickly. - AZDisney  610.4 #312 10:00AM
Newbies are all very confused now πŸ˜‚ - Linzee  1122.7 #150 10:20AM
So are we not allowed to do DL TBT anymore? It seems legit throwbacks of the park are enjoyed by MWers, although I think the idea of "throwback" isn't quite understood by some. I Just want to make sure I understand the rules correctly. - apesandmonkeys  6522.9 #14 10:29AM
Without reading the entire thread. Was there a no TBT FBF reference? - E-Ticket  1393.5 #110 10:38AM
Technically, they should go into the Hub.  DL Real time is for live pictures.  I have been guilty too for the TBT in the wrong land.  But post them to the Hub.  I made the Hub my primary land and you see everything.  If I just want to see real time I can go to that land.  It just makes it easy to sort and helps keep live pictures from being buried so quickly. - AZDisney  610.4 #312 10:42AM
E-Ticket yes.  Under LilSterner's reply. - AZDisney  610.4 #312 10:44AM
Okay found some. I think using #TBT and #FBF will allow people to scroll past if they want to and it harder to scroll posts that are not live and people just posting pictures when none is needed.  Lastly some of us can not post live and next day and week want to share. Disneyland talk land is perfect for that.  Disneyland live is perfect for live pictures.  Also since I am at home more than in the parks I love almost everything posted - E-Ticket  1393.5 #110 10:47AM
I only saw that someone asked that it be done away with. I've only posted in DL talk land, not the DL live option, but will post throwbacks in the hub from now on, no biggie 😊 I think with all the hype of people posting throwback pics, though, a bit more definition of what "throwback" means is necessary: it's meant to reflect a considerable amount of time lapsed. 😎 - apesandmonkeys  6522.9 #14 10:48AM
We all love the way way throwback pictures, like the ones from before I was born kind! The ones that spam the lounge are the ones "tbt from last week, last month, etc" before the the trend throwback Thursday Admin plan days called "retro days" where the lounge was allowed to post those kind if pictures all day long which was quite fun  - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #322 10:48AM
And to add to E-Ticket last post, thank you for adding that bit on posting pics a few days later. Sometimes it isn't always feasible to post live pics, so DL talk land is great for that.  - apesandmonkeys  6522.9 #14 10:53AM
sleepyhead Exactly! I appreciate everyone's contributions, but when people are calling last week/month/year's pics throwbacks, they are misunderstanding the "retro" emphasis that Throwback is meant to incorporate. 😎 - apesandmonkeys  6522.9 #14 10:56AM
I love seeing true TBT pictures, and DL Talk is probably the true place for it.  My main reason for bumping is to remind that art work etc belong in the hub. - AZDisney  610.4 #312 10:58AM
Agreed sleepyhead! - adisneyfamily  872.8 #198 10:59AM
Thank you AZDisney for the update and all is duly noted 😎, especially since I enjoy posting retro pics  - apesandmonkeys  6522.9 #14 11:03AM
AZDisney oh I know what you mean with the artwork. There was a time I called the art work lounge there was too much!! And I flag posts and say they belong to the hub, but alas one flag does not do enough - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #322 11:06AM
I hope everyone reads the comment that Not Every Post Needs A Picture - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #322 10:54AM

ajay87 this post is old! Second it is generally frowned upon to post a picture of a tree in Utah with no Disney affiliation on here. That's what Facebook is for. And lastly is it really that hard to follow the rules admin has laid out for us?  - goofydad909  1972.4 #74 9:52PM
This needs to be on here permanently!!  - goofydad909  1972.4 #74 7:18PM
So I could be permanently confused?. lol. Someday you can explain all of this to me in person. Until then, is posting allowed? It's all Wilson's fault! - MickeyLumboCM  1325.4 #118 9:23PM

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign.

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 #7163 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  399.8 #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 #2467 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.8 #1421 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4816.6 #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 #10622 9:33AM
