Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 29th, 1959. "Sleeping Beauty", Disneys 16th full length animated feature premieres @ the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles. Story development started in 1951, meaning that in total, it took 8 years to make. Animation alone took 6 years because of the level of detail in each frame. Have you ever noticed that the film seems like a moving piece of art? Well that's because Walt wanted each frame worthy of being displayed in a gallery! At $6 million, it was the most expensive animated film ever made. Sadly, it earned $5.8 million, less than what it cost to make, meaning Disney lost money on it. It will be nominated for an Oscar for Best Music/Scoring of a Musical Picture. The voice cast includes Mary Costa (as Princess Aurora), Eleanor Audley (as Maleficent), Barbara Jo Allen (as Fauna), and Verna Felton (as Flora). Have you seen this film? What is your favorite part?

One of my favs! My favorite part of the movie is the music... Tchaikovsky!! The musical score features many pieces from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty ballet, 1890. Thank you SMK! Love this movie. - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 10:45AM
Have you done the walkthorugh at Dl or do we have to add it to our list - pikarich  5903.0 #22 11:01AM
THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING THIS! Pretty Much the musical score of the movie was based on Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Ballet... Once Upon a dream is a waltz from the ballet! - otilegna  2783.0 #51 12:00PM
No prob otilenga. Rich, that's one thing I have actually done. - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 12:40PM
Thanks for the additional info, MyPark! Tchaikovsky is a brilliant composer, and I'd go as far to say 95% of the general population has heard his work, and they just don't know it ;) - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #215 12:45PM
Yes! Definitely agree with you. The music from Sleeping Beauty always gives me chills. - kss4tink  218.0 #1805 10:15PM
β™ͺI know you I walked with you once upon a dream.β™ͺ - Stitch_Legacy  5143.2 #26 10:11AM
My daughter and I sing that song EVERY day!! - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1551 10:13AM
I remember thinking this was THE most romantic song ever when I first saw this as a child. :) - MissAmericaSings  427.9 #530 11:06AM
I LOVE this song! I will randomly sing this around the house, cracking my daughters up! Hahahaha. - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 11:26AM
Listened to that the whole ride in to the park today - BeatleMike  635.6 #329 9:48AM
The book at the beginning was actually made and has been seen in many exhibits.It was very common to use live shots as an introduction to a film winnie the pooh was the most used in this style.Also as part of Fantasmic ,murphy the dragon now on it;s second version is the best dragon in the show with real fire breathing capabilities. The first summer it debut it was missing for most of the first summer due to technical difficulties, who remembers that?my favorite part is the villians did not find Aurora because they were looking for her as a child.lol - pikarich  5903.0 #22 10:58AM
and to add cinderella can be found everywhere in the parks, from the castle walk through,meet and greet, parades and fireworks. - pikarich  5903.0 #22 11:18AM
Love everything about this movie. Another fact- Aurora/Briar Rose has the least amount of spoken lines throughout the movie and they all come at the second half. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #454 10:30PM
Saw this movie with my mom and dad at the drive-in. We had to put our jammies on before we went. My little brother fell asleep. So I got to climb up front and sit between my mom and dad. You know how hard it is hearing a movie through a little speaker but I think they made out of tinfoil.  - Midasgold  633.3 #332 2:10PM
I couldn't resist commenting on this, my apologies for the tardy bump, well, 1 year and 1 day...lol, but what a cute memory that was! Thanks so much Midasgold for sharing that! Your comments always make me smile! "jammies" - Duchess_SMK  6491.3 #19 9:42AM
Thanks for this! I never knew.. Lol. My friend used to call me Sleeping Beauty because I'd always fall asleep everywhere. - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1551 10:14AM
Appropriate on your birthday lovely! 😘😊 hope your day is magical! - Duchess_SMK  6491.3 #19 10:23AM

Very interesting that the film originally made a loss. Something tells me that the DVDs and "Aurora" merchandise sold over the years may have turned this around. Great job Duchess. - RapunzelledColey  140.0 #2941 11:01AM
My favorite Disney movie! I love every part of it! Thanks for the info!!! Always love reading these posts. - mcramos925  454.9 #498 11:07AM
Wonderful movie. I really enjoy the forest scenes bc of the colors the chose and the shapes of the trees. So well done. Thanks, Duchess!! - misschurro...  7257.3 #14 11:21AM
Love the classics! The perfect movie! Sigh. I am curious how much rereleases and video/DVD sales have made over the years. So sad it actually lost money originally! I hope Walt wasn't raked over the coals for that! - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 11:28AM
Great info! My favorite scene is when they are trying to make the cake and gifts. Too funny! - erinten  539.9 #400 11:57AM
One of my favorite movies. Once Upon a Dream was such a romantic song. I had a crush on the prince as a little girl. - Witchie77  381.9 #606 12:22PM
OMG! This is my most FAVORITE movie and not just Favorite movie! I am so happy about this post! This movie needs more recognition! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  350.3 #695 12:31PM

Ah! My favorite movie of all time. Thanks for the post! :) - CM_KittyPrincess23  268.9 #1213 2:30PM
I don't think I've seen this movie all the way through yet. I've seen bits and pieces though. Maybe I should watch the copy I bought! - LilSterner  5732.5 #23 8:33PM
I think by now it's made up for the financial flop. - lovetheland7  177.9 #2322 9:05PM
😍😍my favorite princess movie. I thought she was the most beautiful princess when I was little. I love the scene with her in the woods singing - PinkElephants  745.7 #269 9:12PM
πŸ˜ƒβœ¨πŸ‘ - E-Ticket  1472.4 #119 9:17PM
I love the singing in the forest scene, because who wouldn't love dancing and being serenaded to in a beautiful forest by a prince? - minniemommy  7.2 #14233 11:28PM
I love that she has a Prince Phillip and so do I. - sewedna  578.9 #365 12:12AM
Thank you!!!!! πŸ‘ - Boundin  778.2 #251 12:28AM

πŸ‘πŸ‘excellent pick for a favorite part!  - Duchess_SMK  6491.3 #19 6:06PM

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 #105835 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  6435.8 #20 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 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
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75618 12:12PM
Have Saturdays been less busy then Tuesdays or Wednesdays recently? - TiDoubleGuhErr  0.3 #88279 12:07AM
