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  6101.8 #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  2783.7 #52 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 #219 12:45PM
Yes! Definitely agree with you. The music from Sleeping Beauty always gives me chills. - kss4tink  218.0 #1814 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 #1559 10:13AM
I remember thinking this was THE most romantic song ever when I first saw this as a child. :) - MissAmericaSings  431.9 #534 11:06AM
I LOVE this song! I will randomly sing this around the house, cracking my daughters up! Hahahaha. - MeridaFan  4244.1 #37 11:26AM
Listened to that the whole ride in to the park today - BeatleMike  635.6 #335 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  6101.8 #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  6101.8 #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 #463 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 #337 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  6535.3 #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 #1559 10:14AM
Appropriate on your birthday lovely! 😘😊 hope your day is magical! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 10:23AM
Thank you, Duchess. 😊 - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1559 10:41AM

Fair enough! I can appreciate that love! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 10:49AM
Thanks for the smile! This is my daughters latest favorite. 😘 - LaPearleNoir  2355.4 #71 10:18AM
If I made you smile it's a good day! Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 11:25AM
I love when Briar Rose is singing in the forest and when the fairies are getting her birthday surprises ready. - Minnique  659.8 #320 10:18AM

😍😍😍😍😍😍 My favorite!!!! The best part of the movie, is the whole darn thing! - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #144 10:23AM
😊 Well, now I know 3 of Zoe's favorites, sleeping Beauty, pasta salad at Flos and balloon pics! πŸ˜‚πŸŽˆglad I made you smile today. - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 10:52AM
🎈🎈🎈 You did!! Thank you!! 😊😊😊 - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #144 2:36PM
It really is so beautiful and a work of art. My favorite film and my favorite princess! - MousekaNinja  422.4 #550 10:27AM
I couldn't agree more! The artwork is stunning! Another check for Aurora as a favorite! I love it! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 11:50AM
i've watched this movie at the opera house on Main Street. 😍😍😍 i love it. - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 10:27AM
Lucky duck! I'm sure that was FUN! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 11:50AM
I'm so jealous! - aprilinjune4  483.5 #463 10:32PM

Love this film so much!! My family enjoys it too...actually Aurora is my son's fave princess lol!! Thanks for sharing these facts with us Duchess, have a great day! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  916.7 #207 10:34AM
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  140.3 #2951 11:01AM
My favorite Disney movie! I love every part of it! Thanks for the info!!! Always love reading these posts. - mcramos925  473.8 #476 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...  7449.0 #12 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 #37 11:28AM
Great info! My favorite scene is when they are trying to make the cake and gifts. Too funny! - erinten  539.9 #406 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  382.4 #614 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  350.7 #702 12:31PM
Definitely my favorite Disney Movie as a child! - MrYalla  9.0 #12229 12:43PM
Ah! My favorite movie of all time. Thanks for the post! :) - CM_KittyPrincess23  268.9 #1224 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  5828.4 #23 8:33PM
I think by now it's made up for the financial flop. - lovetheland7  177.9 #2336 9:05PM

πŸ˜ƒβœ¨πŸ‘ - E-Ticket  1476.7 #120 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 #14361 11:28PM
I love that she has a Prince Phillip and so do I. - sewedna  579.0 #372 12:12AM

I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them.

Go ahead and update it as admin needs them posted as current time as possible. You can have ten people with you inputting times themselves and it still helps the app!

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  300.0 #0 2:46PM
Thank you LiveLaughLoveDisney! - Admin  5:59PM

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 June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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 #330 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7485 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #519 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  176.8 #2352 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1031 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75916 12:12PM
Have Saturdays been less busy then Tuesdays or Wednesdays recently? - TiDoubleGuhErr  0.3 #88558 12:07AM
