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  1386.7 #140 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 #9075 8:11PM
I like wine 🍷 and thanks, SmallWorldSister - MissMolly  1386.7 #140 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  294.3 #1012 10:17PM

Can we also add that not every post needs a picture?!?! - LilSterner  5828.4 #24 12:30AM
Please!!!!! - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #150 9:09AM
And now ban Throwback Thursday too? That's what Instagram is for. Just creates too many posts to sift through. - LilSterner  5828.4 #24 9:47AM
Yes and yes! - cesium55  531.8 #427 9:50AM
I'll add it 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.9 #36 10:28AM
I love the addition of the dots too. Helps to emphasize the different points! - LilSterner  5828.4 #24 12:36PM
Maybe we need another retro pic day for everyone to get it out of their systems. - Armenda  1181.5 #163 9:13PM
Oh I would love a Retro Pic day! Great idea! - Scrumpy_N_PansShadow  37.0 #5641 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  294.3 #1012 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  728.0 #290 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  8084.0 #11 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  294.3 #1012 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  8084.0 #11 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  4244.2 #39 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  294.3 #1012 5:38PM
Also see my response above :) πŸ‘† - MissMolly  1386.7 #140 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  94.7 #3783 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 #4986 5:47PM
I scroll past things I do not care to see either. - VfxGenie  1557.1 #119 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  4409.9 #36 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  1752.7 #103 8:31AM
So it's ok to post my picture of a coffee spill I had yesterday that formed a hidden mickey? 😝 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #204 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  4409.9 #36 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  633.3 #345 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  1752.7 #103 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. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 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  452.7 #521 11:40PM

Volcom, saa - misschurro  7743.7 #14 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  8084.0 #11 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  1236.9 #153 2:52PM
Unfortunately not everyone has common sense - Bambi.  605.0 #363 2:57PM

Okay, lets call it uncommon sense, only for those intelligent and crazy enough to have it!!!:D - secretagentangel  8084.0 #11 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 - misschurro  7743.7 #14 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. - MickeyFan  1217.7 #158 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. - MickeyFan  1217.7 #158 7:58AM
It probably didn't have a picture, therefore missed and pushed down the line by photo spam - cesium55  531.8 #427 9:53AM

Maybe I'm not understanding, does this mean that Throwback Thursday photos are no longer permitted? - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1102 11:34AM
They are generally frowned upon because they are not live. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #562 11:36AM
No, there is nothing in the Rules about retro Disneyland pics. 😊 A lot of people really like seeing them. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.9 #36 11:37AM
I suppose personally I would rather see tbt photos from inside the parks than any more nail photos. 😝 - MousekaNinja  422.4 #562 11:42AM
MSG you put it better, more along the lines of what I was thinking. Thank you. I stand corrected. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #562 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 #1102 11:51AM

Throwback Thursday has made MW more like Instagram and FB. Especially when the throwback was from last week - cesium55  531.8 #427 12:41PM
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  643.8 #335 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  643.8 #335 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  5828.4 #24 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. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 3:29PM
Fisney talk is for anything Disney related. Real Time is for posting pics/ news at parks - misschurro  7743.7 #14 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  262.9 #1305 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  1402.7 #138 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  2724.3 #55 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  1868.2 #99 4:03PM
Also, kudos to VeganDisneyDad for asking and being so open to feedback! - Alicewhoareyou  2724.3 #55 4:28PM
Agreed Alice! - misschurro  7743.7 #14 4:37PM
Except that the hidden Mickey's in Cheerios are expressly forbidden. So that should not be posted at all! - MeridaFan  4244.2 #39 4:43PM
Yes, maybe I provided a bad example. lol. How about the hidden poohs in the M&F parking structure? - Alicewhoareyou  2724.3 #55 4:44PM
...or the water droplets from your shower curtain? - Alicewhoareyou  2724.3 #55 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  262.9 #1305 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  2965.4 #50 4:28PM
Every post gets fed to the hub from DL Talk or DL Live :) - misschurro  7743.7 #14 4:31PM
And Events - misschurro  7743.7 #14 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  1868.2 #99 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  5828.4 #24 4:32PM
The hub is all posts together. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #164 4:32PM
DL Live feeds into DL Talk, all lands feed into The Hub. We like retro pics. - Linzee  1402.7 #138 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  5828.4 #24 4:36PM
TBT/ retro equals a time when we cannot believe we actually wore that stuff. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro  7743.7 #14 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  1004.0 #203 4:49PM
Oh ADF-- yours are AMAZING!!!!!! We love yours. - misschurro  7743.7 #14 4:51PM

Oh it's appropriate and cool and great and yay! Makes me wanna slip back in time and wear a poncho with you! 😘 - misschurro  7743.7 #14 5:10PM
*pulls out bucket list and pen...writes* MUST go to DL with HMACIF wearing our ponchos and skipping down Main Street to go get churros!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– OH, it's gonna happen!! - adisneyfamily  1004.0 #203 5:49PM
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  2965.4 #50 5:01PM
Not stupid at all :) *hands you a churro* - misschurro  7743.7 #14 5:08PM
Not at all! Great question! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 5:08PM
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  324.1 #833 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  82.5 #4035 8:01PM
Coming from the guy who posted a picture of a camel on a Wednesday and asked us to guess what day it is. LOLπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Wow. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 8:16PM
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  1807.5 #102 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  1117.3 #177 8:25PM
No. I used to do MW helps, there are 20 something. This is an old post. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.9 #36 8:26PM
And a long time as in before the rules were changed πŸ˜‚ - MEHlanie_Mouse  1117.3 #177 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. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 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  4409.9 #36 8:28PM
Has nothing to do with "new rules" - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.9 #36 8:34PM
My brain hurts. - BellesLibrary  419.8 #567 8:20PM
Yup - dizneedude   1807.5 #102 8:21PM
You can remove post :) - misschurro  7743.7 #14 8:22PM
Lol true hmacif! Good point :) - BellesLibrary  419.8 #567 8:31PM
Churros are heroes too - GrumpyPirateDad  1951.3 #95 8:53PM
Teehee Grumpy :) - misschurro  7743.7 #14 8:55PM
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. If I ever see you at the parks I will buy you a snow cone!!!(Sorry, I have snowcones on the brain)!! - secretagentangel  8084.0 #11 10:20PM
Very nessesary bump! - DisneyDoorite  359.1 #688 10:42PM
Agreed!! πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  1004.0 #203 11:55PM
It kind of sad opening up this thread and seeing veteran users who don't post much or aren't on MW anymore. We miss you! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  700.2 #303 10:38PM
It's the circle of life, Simba - misschurro  7743.7 #14 10:39PM

Eh, some come back around. It loses that "new app smell" for a while but we're still a family. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #164 10:59PM
Now lets all hug and make-up! 😊 - dumbbunny  627.6 #349 11:14PM
I don't want to. I want to break the rules and crack jokes at someone else's expense. Nah, never mind. I'll hug - phillip...  1376.7 #141 11:18PM
Well, yes and no. See the Ghostbuster's theme song is in my head right now. 😀 - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 11:22PM
Come on people, I'm at 8% on my iPad so lets make them count! πŸ˜‚ - dumbbunny  627.6 #349 11:24PM
Ahaha, I'm at 5! Hurrry! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MissMolly  1386.7 #140 11:25PM
You better charge up bunny cuz RAK is coming, hubby's leaving and juice is going to be broken into. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 11:26PM
Oh man, lets brake out the chargers MissMolly. Lol - dumbbunny  627.6 #349 11:32PM
I'm at 11%, I can hold off on the hug for a little while longer - phillip...  1376.7 #141 11:36PM
I'm at 98%!!!! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 11:40PM
I will not hug nor make up until the 51st anniversary is recognized!!! It's just as special as the 50th!! - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #369 11:44PM
Dang it, I got my charger and took my pain med...I'm good to go. - dumbbunny  627.6 #349 11:46PM
@sleepyhead Did you see his comment was removed but kind enough to post on NicoleFaces comment from 6 months ago. I put in a few gentle words. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3466.9 #46 11:48PM
Where, where? Haha, I'm up to 15%! That's good for another 20 mins or so! - MissMolly  1386.7 #140 11:58PM
Down to 5% and my face paint post just got bumped. It's gonna be a long night. Where's my charger? - phillip...  1376.7 #141 12:00AM
I can't find the charger for my charger! This is a problem... - MissMolly  1386.7 #140 12:02AM
Ahhh Anarchy!!! - dumbbunny  627.6 #349 12:18AM
Oh man you guys are cracking me up tonight! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #842 12:21AM
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  610.5 #359 10:00AM
Newbies are all very confused now πŸ˜‚ - Linzee  1402.7 #138 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  6523.5 #20 10:29AM
Without reading the entire thread. Was there a no TBT FBF reference? - E-Ticket  1478.1 #125 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  610.5 #359 10:42AM
E-Ticket yes.  Under LilSterner's reply. - AZDisney  610.5 #359 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  1478.1 #125 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  6523.5 #20 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 #369 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  6523.5 #20 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  6523.5 #20 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  610.5 #359 10:58AM
Agreed sleepyhead! - adisneyfamily  1004.0 #203 10:59AM
Thank you AZDisney for the update and all is duly noted 😎, especially since I enjoy posting retro pics  - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #20 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 #369 11:06AM
I hope everyone reads the comment that Not Every Post Needs A Picture - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #369 10:54AM
I really wish I could reply with a picture lol jk - BeatleMike  635.6 #343 11:08AM
Yes!!  - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #20 11:10AM
BeatleMike, you are now BLOCKED!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #369 11:17AM
Pics of the same people can get a little boring. In fact, posts on this App seems repetitive. 🌺 - 808luvdisney  7.8 #13804 11:12AM
Then use the Remove Post option. Boom, problem solved.  - Atora  2702.2 #56 11:46AM
Can't we all just get along ????Hehehehehehe Gosh!!! - Fantasmicfan1  5308.7 #25 11:36AM
I didn't know we weren't getting along. - AZDisney  610.5 #359 11:39AM
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  1999.8 #91 9:52PM
This needs to be on here permanently!!  - goofydad909  1999.8 #91 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  1358.8 #142 9:23PM

I use this every time I'm at the parks now and llove it!!!!  Thanks Admin - leopardditz2000  1157.4 #169 7:44PM
I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 7:03PM

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 week of August 29, 2016. OK , I'll add some more for this week while admin is busy. Β Β starting with Monday August Β 29th we are getting ready to say goodbye to Paint The Night . This will be the last week for it to be run Β two times a night until it goes on hiatus for a while until the holidays. So expect crowds, especially at night, to be a little bigger. Last week the major crowds came in on Friday about 7 PM and the park really filled up. Expect that again this weekend especially because it's Labor Day weekend. Β it's also Β race weekend which means races on Friday , Saturday , and Sunday so there will be road closures during the early morning until about noon along Disney way. And downtown Disney parking will be very crowded since half the parking lot is taken up by event booths. Include with that it being Labor Day and Monday being the last night to see Paint The Night for a while, Β the the park will probably be very crowded. So bring your patience and bring some extra water. And have fun!Β  - secretagentangel Aug 29, 2016 11:51PM



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 #336 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7593 11:53PM

I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8084.0 #11 1:41PM
