Good morning! I'd like to dedicate this post to a very special girl, Armenda, this is for you doll! This day in Disney history, Jan 23rd, 2006. Monsters, Inc.: Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!, officially opens to the public in DCA. A new dark ride that replaced Superstar Limo, (an attraction that only lasted 11 months after DCA's grand opening). If you remember my post from Jan. 11th, you know that this building sat empty for 4 years! Anxious guests gathered outside the attraction, They were soon joined by a "Stage Tech", who explained that there was a problem-- There was not enough power to start up the ride! He carried a "power meter" & asked the guests to scream, & when that didn't work Sully came out & asked them to laugh! The meter quickly reached 100%. :) Happy birthday Monsters Inc.! For a GREAT play by play of the opening ceremonies: complete w/ more photos: http://is.gd/nXasxX For a ride thru video of Monsters Inc: http://is.gd/2eKwe8 & in case you would like a refresher of Super Star Limo: http://is.gd/gaZmJY What is your favorite part of this attraction? Do you think it was a good replacement? As always, thanks for reading & I hope you all have a magical day! :)

the monster inc ride in japan you ride a car similar to toy story mania and ride around with flashlights to find monsters.When monster inc movie then ride *true fact the Japanese audience does not know why we associate Chinese take out boxes (scene from the restaurant) because they don't use them there only in the USA and we invented take out Chinese boxes here. My favorite part is looking at the hidden mickey on sully in the last room where he tells boo she has to go home. it's on the left side of his fur. The taxis in this ride is from the old superstarlimo atrraction. - pikarich  5902.7 #22 11:02AM
Thanks for adding all that! I had no idea they didn't use those boxes out there! Fascinating! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 1:40PM

Easily manage the social side of MouseWait for Disneyland and Disney World with our new mousetopia app for iOS. Post to the DL or WDW side, use your Stickers, and utilize our new MouseWait Messenger. Optimized for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6! See what's new here


MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

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  0.1 #105829 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  6434.9 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM

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 May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. 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 May 9, 2016 5:42PM



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 #324 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7431 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #511 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  176.1 #2346 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1183 5:04PM
