I'm very Watchful of kids, and I think I posted this before, but one time I was with my nieces and nephews watching them like a hawk (yes EVILQueen) and I turned my head for two seconds, and I looked back, my youngest nephew was already about 30 feet away walking rhe other direction. Even the most watchful parent, uncle, aunt, grandparent....etc., looks away for a second. Doesn't make us bad people...just human! - DisneyDavidEMT  2740.7 #50 8:22PM

I was the lost child once, when i as like 1. My mom and sister went to the bathroom, and my dad and I were in the Main Street Locker room. My dad took me out of the stroller to straighten it up, and I crawled into the open locker we were using, and it closed behind me. And that is why I was a child who wore a leash/harness... - fletheartsdisney  742.9 #267 9:16PM
Personally I like to leave Brooklynne home with her daddy so I don't have to worry about it! Geez who wants to take their kid to Disneyland?! Crazy people, I tell ya! - Deltachiq  1244.3 #144 10:31PM
If you just leave her strapped in her stroller while you go on rides, you won't lose her! I love stroller parking! - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1542 10:45PM
Tried to do that once. I was told by the group I was with I wasn't allowed. She was sleeping for goodness sakes and it really wanted to ride RSR opening week. It was only a 240 minutes wait. She would have slept through most of it! - Deltachiq  1244.3 #144 10:50PM
Lol! Last time I borrow children.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3494 10:50PM

*sigh* evilqueen, are you serious? Even the most watchful parent can lose a child in a place as busy as Disneyland. We once lost my lil cousin at AdventureDome in Las Vegas while he walked just a few feet away from us to throw something away in the trash can. He was five at the time and started following a family that was also wearing AZ Dbacks shirts that day. These things can happen to even the most responsible parents. - KermitFan13  658.1 #312 8:28PM

Yes, watchful parents CAN lose their kids. Children are small and quick. They can be gone in the blink of an eye. I thought I lost my babycakes once at Gymboree Play and Music. A gated in facility. I only looked away for one second. My heart dropped. Luckily I found him rather quickly. It can happen as quick as a car accident when closing your eyes to sneeze for one second. - aidensmama  340.3 #726 10:30PM

I got lost once after a parade in one of those crazy concert like crowds. It was at night and pretty scary. My phone was dead but I waited in the same spot like a good kid and eventually my wife found me - phillip...  1357.4 #132 9:38PM
You guys need to have a meeting spot like my hubby and I do! We always meet in the hub if we're separated. LOL Also don't forget how helpful the CM's are! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.3 #43 11:09PM
As I always tell my kids, if you're not within tackling distance then you're too far. - Hagrid  215.9 #1820 7:41PM
Never lost one at Disneyland but did at Great America. It was terrifing. Took 45 min to find him on the other side of the park - GoofyMomma  196.8 #2067 7:33PM

no worst part was it wasn't even my child. - GoofyMomma  196.8 #2067 9:05PM
Scary to imagine! Thank goodness everything turned out ok. I'm in favor of the leash, but my wife not so. Having 2 is manageable, but 3+ can be tough! We only have 2 and that's hard enough! - snappy  442.0 #509 8:06PM
About 13 years go we lost my son at disney world He was 5 at the time. We came off pirates and stop to look he kept going.It was very scary. He was at the lost and found a cm took him there. He told them his mom and dad go lost. - Disneyforlife  235.0 #1575 8:07PM
Lol! Yeah, that's exactly what she told me... - minnieluv  108.8 #3494 8:11PM
LoL. I guess that is the reason why they have a sign outside of City Hall about lost parents looking for their kids. - KermitFan13  658.1 #312 8:30PM
My parents lost me as a kid when I was 6. My brothers and their baseball team (so about 12 boys) came up with the wonderful plan to play hide-&-seek on tom sawyer island. When it was time for lunch i was still hiding on the island alone. As I was crying my eyes out a CM was nice enough to play patty cake with me till my parents, about 10 minutes later came and got me. - CMallyg92  108.7 #3497 8:33PM
My niece got lost in toontown & was found by the Matterhorn a few years ago. The CM were great though!! They found her, thank the good Lord!! - Superspacemountainfan  92.2 #3764 8:58PM

My sister lost her 5 yo. She was waiting in line while her hubby went to get something. They each thought the other had him, when her hubby returned 10 min later they relized what happened and went into panic mode! Found him 10 min later at a gift shop near by with a cast member! - julietyler76  8.4 #12657 9:08PM
It is scary Lil E walked away from Mom near Jedi academy when she was 3 or 4. Fortunately they found each other - E-Ticket  1470.1 #117 9:09PM
PS. I told the kids to find a CM an tell them they are lost if they got lost. They never had to though - E-Ticket  1470.1 #117 9:11PM
That is my worst nightmare! So scary for you! I lost my oldest when he was 2 at a subway. I went to pay and he ran out the door. I caught him half way down the block! It's been backpack leashes ever since. Yes I'm "that" parent. I'll take the nasty looks over the missing child any day! - Disneycrazymom  137.8 #2965 11:29PM
No matter how watchful you are, it can happen. When my oldest was about 2 or 3, my mother and I took her to the state fair where they had a Disney show going on. After the show, they had a huge area where they had bouncy stuff for the kids. I literally turned to my mother, handed her the diaper bag, turned back, and my daughter was gone! She disappeared in a matter of seconds! (She went running to climb on a bouncy, I guess, and was eventually returned to us by an employee because she still had her shoes on.) It was the scariest two hours of my life. Okay, it probably only lasted a few minutes, but it FELT like hours. A child can wander/run off in a matter of seconds, no matter how watchful the parent!! - jmgphx  323.1 #811 8:17AM
I watch my daughter like a hawk - ScooterMike  1963.0 #88 7:25PM
Exactly what I do!! - Witchie77  377.5 #613 7:38PM
Nope. But I can imagine how terrifying that was. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #141 7:28PM
We thought we lost my nephew at the Halloween party! I've never seen my brother so freaked out and panicked in all my life! So sorry that happened to you but glad you had a good outcome. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.3 #43 7:34PM
I panicked..for a second I even forgot what she was wearing...good thing I always take a picture as soon as w get there.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3494 9:40PM

We lost our youngest once. We stopped at Grizzly Bear Rapids to check the stand-by time. We were all there one second, and the next our four year old was gone. My husband and daughters searched, and I ran to get help from a CM. Our rule is to sit down as soon as they realize they are lost, but a helpful stranger took him by the hand, and led him to Paradise Pier where they handed him off to a security CM. He was gone for about 15 minutes. Longest 15 of my life!! - mrstoad  256.1 #1322 7:46PM
I too have a "in case you get separated from me" plan, and remind the kids everytime before we walk into the parks...I just never thought I would have to actually use it...I am glad all went well for you too - minnieluv  108.8 #3494 8:08PM
Yes, the plan my brother uses is to stay in place. I don't know if either of you are familiar with the Halloween party but they have taped lines on the pavement of the park for trick or treating and they go back-and-forth and zigzag and it's really easy to not know which direction you should go because guests have been walking on the tape all night and that's how my nephew got confused. Fortunately we just went backwards in line and found him standing there about 7 yards or so from us. His Mom kept praising him for doing exactly what she always taught him. But still you don't know if someone could've snatched him. Scary thoughts go through your mind. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.3 #43 8:53PM
I like your plan of what to do in case it happens. I will Need to remind my youngest, well, for that matter, the older one too! Before our next trip. Thats where cell phones are handy for the older Ones though. The ability to text in the parks is a God send! - MeridaFan  4243.8 #36 9:22PM
Nope, but we use a child harness on very busy days when my dd refuses to hold hands. We get criticized heavily for this but better than a lost child. - CheshireCam  200.2 #2027 8:00PM
Agree - minnieluv  108.8 #3494 8:03PM
If you ever get a chance to watch modern family when they went to Disneyland that was a huge part of the episode. My husband I always smile when we see a child on a "tether". That's what they called it in the show. So sweet. Good for you. No one knows your child better than you and what's best for them. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.3 #43 8:59PM
My little one is fast and thinks it's a game to run away from me. She's at the independent string willed 3yo faze. Boy I hope it's a faze. lol - CheshireCam  200.2 #2027 9:01PM

Thank you all for making me feel better. I always watch them, especially because they are not mine, but a three year old sure is fast! She knew she did wrong by walking away from me...but I too learned my lesson...never look away! Lol! - minnieluv  108.8 #3494 8:02PM

Thankfully, Disney has an impeccable record of reuniting children and their lost parents. We found my 5 year old cousin in the first aid after losing him by the Matterhorn during a "who's got to go to the bathroom" fiasco. 😁 - bluefairy  643.8 #321 10:05PM
Is it weird that Disneyland is one of the few public places I don't totally freak out about this? I mean, has any kid ever been lost/kidnapped from Disneyland? They're so on top of it. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #155 11:34PM
I guess because they are not mine, I do try to be extra careful, but when you work with children (specially abused children) you never put your guard down, even at the happiest place on earth. They don't check Megan's list before they give you a pass.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3494 7:39AM
When we first visit Disneyland in 2010, there was a group of parents giving out flyers by the entrance to remind parents to be careful that kids can be very easily to get lost in the happiest place on earth. Looked like they had actually lost their own kids there before. This would be the worst nightmare to any parents. - RapunzalK  196.7 #2070 11:36PM
I received similar flyers around that time. Could be different ones, but the ones I got were being distributed as part of a scare tactic used by the union in a bitter dispute over their contract. - SneakyStella  321.9 #818 12:18AM
I have helped many kids find a CM to stay with until the parents find them. I usually have a keen eye to see when a child and parent gets separated and am quick to stop everything I am doing to make sure the child gets to an available CM ASAP. Even after I watch the child to make sure they get reunited. Freaks me out and I'm not a parent. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #452 8:21AM
Nope not yet. - Lelundrial  687.4 #294 8:23AM
During my last trip, I saw about 5 kids over the course of two days trying to find their parents (they all had CMs with them). It seemed like everywhere we went we saw a poor kid lost. - KylaShea  632.7 #330 8:25AM
I lost my son at a large amusement park in Carlsbad. The scariest experience ever! You don't joke about it even 10 years later. - MeridasHair  346.5 #706 8:26AM
I lose stuff everyday. - donnievegas  1132.7 #166 8:27AM
I didn't lose them per say. . . we were on Tom Sawyers Island. My kids knew not to leave the island without me, so I knew where they were. They also stick to together, so they weren't "alone". I'm 5'8" and have a little extra meat on the bones, so I don't move well inside the caves. After a couple laps on the island I did find them, together happy and playing, but I was on "high alert" mode thinking all the horrible what ifs. - GoofyMom77  967.9 #197 9:03AM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127106 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  5755.3 #21 8:10PM

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 April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. 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 Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.2 #323 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7386 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.0 #509 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  175.6 #2343 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.8 #1180 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17925 3:45PM
Saturday's are less busy - DarthFairy  473.8 #466 2:18PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75275 12:12PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge. 

This is an  app. Thank you @@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  295.9 #0 2:46PM
Thank you LiveLaughLoveDisney! - Admin  5:59PM
