Here it is, Episode 1 of the MouseWait Podcast! The entire team did an AWESOME job considering it was their first time producing something like this. They spent a ton of time planning and researching the content and BBM did an excellent job on post-production, which is a very time consuming task. Thanks to SPandEvLover for heading up this team and taking responsibility, she has done a great job! Thanks to BCC for working behind the scenes to help on the technical side. I'm extremely proud of this team because I set a tight deadline and they worked together to get the final product done on time. It was cool to hear them talk about MouseWait Meet ups and events, I strongly believe that this podcast will bring an entirely new dimension to the Lounge. This is a work in progress, and we need your help and feedback to improve the podcast on a weekly basis (post your feedback below). http://bit.ly/V0IjkN - The episodes will be available on iTunes in a few weeks, for now, we have to play them through these links. You can also download the mp3 file to your computer. GREAT JOB PODCAST TEAM!

Feedback----The use of music is a good idea for the beginning and softly during certain parts of the podcast but the use of the music on this podcast was way too loud and did not help with the flow of the cast and was very distracting. Try and find a few of the old attraction background music from the parks and see if you can incorporate that into the cast at a volume level that does not take away from the voices and see if you can sublimely have tracks that have to do with the topics, lands, attractions, shows that you might be talking about. Get rid of the generic sound effects. I only heard it a couple of times but felt that it was a bit cheesy and not necessary. I would limit the amount of hosts to 2 at a max during future casts and have them rotate to peoples availability or however you need to work it out. Having more than 2 just gets confusing and you have the issue where everybody wants to throw their two cents in and you spend longer amounts of time on topics that really don’t need it and it gets confusing to who is speaking. A long with that thought is the sound quality of some of the members on what sounds like a flip phone in their bathroom. There were only two members whom had good sound quality and that was Trent and one of the girls, can’t remember which one. The others sounded muffled, like they had a trumpet mute over the phone and like they were not talking directly into a microphone. You might want to record these all in person at a host computer or limit it to those who have a quality microphone that can be recorded at a higher quality, I really had a hard time understanding some of you. Also IMO I would really try and limit the amount of in Park news to a minimum for podcasts. By the time most people download a podcast the information that is being talked about in the podcast will either be already happening or be in the past. You have to remember that a lot of your audience is going to be Disney fans and every day users of the lounge, and other Disney fan sites. Like most Disney AP holders and users they already know about most everything that has been posted on the Disney blogs and or on Disney fan sites, twitter and FB. It’s just like in the lounge when somebody posts news two days later and everyone jumps on them and says CHOO CHOO ALL ABOARD. A good podcast is one that gets its new users to want to go back and download past episodes that they may have missed and with that being said I would try and limit the amount of discussions on Disney in park news instead a large portion of the cast would be like setting your DVR to record the weather channel and watching it a week later. Not everyone is going to be able to download and listen to it the day it comes out. Try and find some unique topics that not everyone is talking about and elaborate on those and make it into the bulk of the cast. Some of these topics might take a month worth of research discussions with other Mwers and so forth but it would be very interesting to talk about things that not everybody knows about. The lounge is a perfect place to find those topics that people are posting about and interested in and do and in depth talk about it. Prime example was something like SIC posted yesterday about Prince Phillip not wearing the same hat in the Parks or maybe about a couple of the windows on Main Street and about who that person is or in depth history of an attraction…I did like how you talked about new features of Mousewait and think you could spend a little extra time on that just like a SIC 101 post but a segment on the show. Same goes for talking about some of the funny posts or most popular posts of the week or all time. You might also want to invite others in for something like a Get to know your Mousewaiters and feature people on it. Also I think that once a week is a bit much for a podcast where you will just be spitting stuff out so fast that you will lost quality over quantity - Dave  12455.1 #2 11:57AM
Brevity is the soul of wit. - Mouse4life  1293.1 #114 12:00PM
Thanks for you input! We have talked about producing more original content for the show for the future. Regarding length, we wanted the first one to be a little longer and to introduce most of the voices you'll be hearing on the show, but for future shows, we will try to keep it to about 30-40 minutes and to a smaller group of hosts. Regarding music, I experimented with this show with it and will definitely use less and what MSG said - BaseballMickey_CM  6866.0 #9 12:08PM
i really like the idea to talk about things that are going on with the lounge, the example dave posted is great. the review was great dave. - chris.  2510.9 #45 12:09PM
This was a great review. I like the park about talking about what people are posting about in the lounge that interests them. The Get to know your Mousewaiters reminds me of when StrawberryGuy would ride with MWers on attractions and interview them. - cesium55  531.6 #353 12:16PM
*part - cesium55  531.6 #353 12:16PM
Yes cesium! I actually just discovered those posts! I've been here 6 months now and am still discovering new things so I like your suggestions Dave. - MrsSchnooks  3043.1 #40 12:23PM
Nicely said and much needed. And thanks for the shout outs 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4387.6 #22 12:26PM
Thanks Dave for your thorough review. We are definitely taking everything you and every other MWer stated into account. What will set this podcast apart from many others is our tight community AND the fact that we are ALL contributing to the success of this project. As someone who helps with the content, your suggestions and criticisms are spot on. Thank you for taking the time to write this review! As this is a work in progress, we would greatly appreciate everyone's feedback for all future podcasts. Thanks again! - EpicDio  433.1 #458 1:28PM
Thank you so much for taking the time for that great feedback, Dave! A lot of what you listed has actually already been discussed for future podcasts (not all of them though, just some. So I'm loving your ideas!). We're just dipping our toes in the water hehe I'm so glad that we have people who can be honest like this with us. I really think stuff like this will help forma much better podcast for everyone (both listeners as well as those of us working on it) - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 1:38PM
Great review Dave! Hit everything spot on. - LilSterner  4817.5 #19 3:24PM
While I thank Admin for the recognition, this would not be possible without the hard working MWers that are on the team, which all deserve equal, if not more credit than I. (I just make sure everyone has whatever they need. I do the least out of everyone...) BBM for working in a tight deadline, nicoleface for starting and spearheading the project and everyone else on our first episode. In no particular order, these MWers should be congratulated on a job well done! Trent, RickChavez, SPandEvLover, ScooterMike, MEHlanie_Mouse, MIss-E-Mouse and others I may have missed. (Please e-slap me if I did.) Again, great job team!!! - BCC  4781.6 #20 7:44PM
To everyone else, we NEED your feedback! We can't improve without you guys! - BCC  4781.6 #20 7:46PM
^^yes! Your feedback is HIGHLY encouraged. - BaseballMickey_CM  6866.0 #9 8:07PM
The background music was too long and too loud. Also, you might want to post the podcast sooner or get news that will happen further down the road because most of it we had already seen on MW or from other sites. And don't forget your cohosts. At times it seemed like an "oh yeah, let's hear from so and so." That's all I can think of. - cesium55  531.6 #353 10:00PM
Oh and there were a lot of cohosts. Maybe alternate who'll host weekly - cesium55  531.6 #353 10:05PM
Thank you! We need feedback like this too. As much as I totally love hearing the good, we need to hear stuff like this so that we can grow better. - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 10:08PM
Yes I agree I liked this review ;] nice and honest. And also, in the future we're only going to have at least 4 total hosts.. This first one was introducing all of us :] But thank you for the honest review - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #140 10:09PM
Thank you. We will try to alter with the music a little. And for the first show, we wanted as many hosts on as possible. But for future shows, we'll be definitely rotating. - BaseballMickey_CM  6866.0 #9 10:09PM
thanks ces! we only had everyone on cos it was the first one. from now on there should only be about 4 people. 😊 - nicoleface  1749.9 #79 10:10PM
You're welcome. Good luck :) - cesium55  531.6 #353 10:28PM
I agree about the music. I thought the podcast was great but the music started to give me a headache. (Sorry). - aidensmama  340.1 #642 11:19PM
This project was so much fun to work on and will continue to be fun. If you want to write the show, send an email to mousewaitpodcastteam@gmail.com :) - BaseballMickey_CM  6866.0 #9 8:01PM
You guys did a great job! Your first Podcast was very well done!!! I enjoyed the banter, reviews and news. I have a few suggestion but I well send them to your gmail. I know I said this already but... Great job everyone, you should be very pleased!!!!! - Boundin  593.9 #308 12:20AM
*Edit: email is mousewaitwebcastteam[at]gmail.com - BaseballMickey_CM  6866.0 #9 6:55PM
Dear MouseWait Podcast Hosts, hi! I'm a first time listener and just wanted to let you all know that I really enjoyed the show! You all did a wonderful job discussing the topics at hand! Can't wait for the next one! You asked for the listeners to make a suggestion, and well, I've got one for ya! I think a cool feature for the show would be to bring back something from The Lounge that was known as, "MouseWaiter of The Day!" Not exactly sure who started that, but I do remember it being a fun way to get to know the person behind the MouseWait name. Questions asked of them came directly from the members of the MouseWait Community. And maybe you, the hosts, can ask them what their thoughts and feelings are regarding the topics of the week. Since the podcast is only a weekly show, the segment could be called "MouseWaiter of The Week!" The decision of the MouseWaiter could be based on the weekly top 5, nominations, random number generator, anything! I don't know, just thought I could suggest something fun from before :) Good luck on the future podcasts! Sincerely, your friendly neighborhood streetrat: AlaBeezy (AKA it's ya boy rbeezy, #1 Fan) - rbeezy  703.0 #239 1:45AM
That's a great suggestion! We'll just put that one in the Suggestion Box. - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 2:08AM
Great suggestion for MWer of the week. I think random generator could be good because it would open it up to a lot more people than have a chance to be top 5. Or if there are special things going on for people. I like the nominations idea also. πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ - MousekaNinja  422.3 #473 7:20AM
I am listening to this at the gym right nowπŸ˜„. Trent's voice keeps me motivated. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #198 8:42PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #140 8:47PM
You're welcome - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 10:06PM
I agree with DV and Cesium. The music is a little distracting. I think music in the intro and at the end would be ok. I also think less hosts would be better. It felt like you were trying to get them in the podcast instead of just letting it flow. I know it's your first one and I just wanted to give you guys constructive criticism. I hope I didn't offend you guys. - Sandcar13  1374.0 #108 10:47PM
This is great!! Future podcasts will only have at the most 4 people. Everyone was on tonight to introduce themselves :) Thanks for your feedback!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3570.2 #32 10:51PM
I AM SUPER OFFENDED. lol just kidding. we mentioned above that we only had everyone on because it was the first one and we wanted to introduce everyone. from now on there will only be 4 people tops. :) thanks for your feedback! - nicoleface  1749.9 #79 10:52PM
We definitely tried to pack all of the hosts in this episode and we will not have that many in the future. We are going to have no more than 4 people on a podcast at time in the future. And we will play around with the music. Thanks for the feedback. I was only offended a little ;) - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 10:54PM
Sorry Sis. I didn't see your responses before I posted my comment. - Sandcar13  1374.0 #108 11:02PM
it's okay bro. it's only acceptable because you're family. - nicoleface  1749.9 #79 11:03PM
We should really post a PSA that future podcasts will have less people, and be shorter... lol but thank you sir :] - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #140 11:08PM
butthurtness - Dave   12455.1 #2 11:10PM
For the first official podcast, I thought you did a great job! Very exciting times! I liked that you had all those who will be interchanging "regulars" on there, so we could be introduced to everyone for the first time. Here are some of my thoughts for future episodes: I think 2-3 people would be the best number. Even four is still one too many. Intro and outro music only. The music playing over your voices made it a little harder to hear sometimes. I am blanking on the duration of this episode, but it did feel a little too long. I thought that everyone did a good job interacting with one another, despite the large amounts of people. I loved hearing voices to match with faces, you all have good voices for being on radio. You kept it clean which I can respect. Keep up the great work, and thank you for working so hard to give our community one more amazing thing to bring us together! =D - MousekaNinja  422.3 #473 11:21PM
I listened to it at the gym earlier and will give a full feedback on it tomorrow - Dave  12455.1 #2 9:46PM
Why does this make me nervous? πŸ˜‚ - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 9:48PM
it shouldn't make you nervous. All I will do is give my suggestions and feedback.I've been listening to Podcasts that are part of the DPN (Disney Podcast Network) for years beyond my Mousewait days and can probably help. With that said I'm sure it will invoke buthurtness regardless LOL - Dave   12455.1 #2 9:59PM
I know. I actually really value your opinion, Dave. I promise I won't get butt hurt πŸ˜‚ - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 10:05PM
i am preemptively butthurt. OMG DAVE WHY WOULD YOU THINK ABOUT SAYING THAT? - nicoleface  1749.9 #79 10:09PM
I just want to thank everyone for listening. Taking the time out of your day to listen to a bunch of us talk about something we have been working on for sometime now and something that we are all passionate about. It felt great to get this first episode out there for you all to listen and I'm glad for all of the valuable feedback that you all are giving. We are taking all feedback into consideration for the next episode and upcoming future episodes. Again, thank you listening and it will only get better from here. - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 3:04PM
I havent had a chance to listen yet but I heard you did great and have a great newscast type voice, way to go man! - madsdad  1847.0 #76 3:10PM
Thanks a lot man! Let us know what you think when you get the chance to listen. - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 3:33PM
Honestly I like the chemistry and Trent does SO gooood hosting. The laughter and conversations feels like you're at a meetup! I think that's what I like about the most. - MarshaMouse  4124.3 #25 8:44PM
did trent pay you to say that? - nicoleface  1749.9 #79 8:58PM
πŸ‘†πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 9:36PM
Lol no, I really did enjoy hearing him, he did really good keeping the Flow - MarshaMouse  4124.3 #25 9:43PM
Well I enjoyed all of you but he connected everything together well - MarshaMouse  4124.3 #25 9:43PM
There were a couple moments where Trent sounds like Ira Glass. Which I loved. =) - MousekaNinja  422.3 #473 9:47PM
Well thank you ladies. 😊 - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 10:13PM
Nice job, Pod cast crew!! It was fun to hear all your voices and the tidbits about Disneyland. Great job. Looking forward to next weeks :) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5205.6 #17 8:49PM
Maybe make it half an hour- needs to be a lil shorter :) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5205.6 #17 10:15PM
I hope everyone enjoys it. And please, DO take part in the interactive portions! It'll make this podcast that much more enjoyable. Can't wait for the next one!!! - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 9:35PM
I just listened to the podcast and enjoyed it very much. You all sounded like you were having so much fun. For future episodes I think maybe interviewing the top MW'ers of the week would be interesting. - Witchie77  339.9 #643 12:44PM
The link just bounces me back to the hub πŸ˜• - Linzee  1035.6 #161 7:37PM
Okay it works, I copied and pasted then opened with Chrome - Linzee  1035.6 #161 7:39PM
Congrats everyone!!! Thank you for all your hard work! - Armenda  1153.8 #134 7:52PM
Just finished listening! Great Job!!! - Armenda  1153.8 #134 8:54PM
I'm only 1/3 of the way through, super proud of all of you and not having ever met another MWer, I'm totally tripping out on hearing your voices πŸ˜‚. Pictures with screen names...okay done, but putting a voice to them is a 🎢whole new world🎢 for me. - Linzee  1035.6 #161 8:02PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I didn't even think about that!! Haha well that should be interesting, people saying "I didn't think you would sound like that!" Bahahaha - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #140 8:04PM
That's true I didn't think about that either, since I know faces to names to voices lol - MarshaMouse  4124.3 #25 8:43PM
This has huge potential!! And sounds like a fun project. Thank you to all those that have put this together! - IMissDisney  1205.3 #124 8:05PM
Yay! Can't wait to hear what people think about it. Please leave feedback! - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 8:45PM
HSM!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MousekaNinja  422.3 #473 9:43PM
MJ ftw!!! - RickChavez  3429.2 #36 9:46PM
I didn't say MJ was worse than Bieber, I just said that JB is just as great as MJ was haha - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 10:40PM
Listening right now! Sounds good!!! - Boundin  593.9 #308 9:05PM
It was a lot of fun to record the podcast with great friends. I really love the way it came out. Everyone contributed information and opinions to make it feel like a friendly discussion about Disneyland. I am very proud of this and thank Admin for the opportunity to participate. - ScooterMike  1962.2 #69 9:12PM
i am very proud of this podcast and everyone involved. thanks to admin for the opportunity and to everyone else for their input and contributions. please leave us feedback so we can make the podcast even better! - nicoleface  1749.9 #79 9:19PM
Trying not to feel left out :*( - MrsMears  217.1 #1687 9:28PM
Aww don't feel that way. There are 52 weeks in a year and we plan on doing many more podcast you can contribute to! 😊 - I_AM_CROWD_LADY  1424.6 #103 9:31PM
If memory serves me correctly, you were having fun at the parks, right? I think that's a valid reason to not be around as much as you would've liked πŸ˜‰ There's gonna be plenty of others and I look forward to working with you! *hugs* - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 9:34PM
Honestly, I can't keep up with the lounge for a variety of reasons but thanks. :) - MrsMears  217.1 #1687 9:36PM
SP, I'll DM you. xo - MrsMears  217.1 #1687 9:37PM
I'll keep an eye out for it 😊 - SPandEvLover  3490.8 #34 9:50PM
OMG I'm so excited to start listening to this right this minute! - MousekaNinja  422.3 #473 9:30PM
Whoop Whoop, Congratulations to all!!!! - secretagentangel  1439.9 #101 9:49PM
I definately needs a lil tweaking, kill the music, try not to jump around so much, shorten it a bit etc...Just my honest opinion im not one to sugarcoat. I hope others offer healthy criticism as well so you can only get better from here. - donnievegas  1132.6 #138 10:30PM
Thank you. We'll definitely be playing with the music for the future. - BaseballMickey_CM  6866.0 #9 10:33PM
thanks chett! - nicoleface  1749.9 #79 10:34PM
And that's the word from ChettπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ - PrincessKristin  780.8 #213 10:35PM
its Henry approved! loved it - Hendizl  2580.7 #43 10:41PM
This turned out great for our first time!!! I have been dying to hear it!! Being the first one, we will learn from this one on what we need to do to make it better in the future. Future podcasts will only have 4 voices but this one had everyone so that they could introduce who will be talking in the future podcasts. For the first run through, you guys did great!! I can't wait to work on this week and see how we improve!!!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3570.2 #32 10:45PM
4 is too many - Dave   12455.1 #2 11:07PM
How many do you think would be best? 2 or 3? - caramiapoohAKAface  3570.2 #32 11:16PM
4 is ok for banter but 2 is best for overall information! I liked hearing everyone (all 6) discussing things, it was kind of like having lunch with friends and you just sit back and laugh because you can't get a word in edgewise !!!!! - Boundin  593.9 #308 12:40AM
I can't believe you guys didn't talk about the lunar new year and what is going on with performances like you told me to wait for! - HannahsLola  106.1 #3356 11:10PM
BTW great job you guys but I think 4 co-hosts are still too many! - HannahsLola  106.1 #3356 11:12PM
Sounded great,the backround music was perfect,to me it kept the flow going.maybe to much mention of getting info from other websites,MW should be the site for all our up to the minute news.cant wait to hear the next podcast.great going to everybody invovled.thanks - bonedaddy909  1260.9 #115 11:29PM
Awesome. Trent you have the face for Podcasts!!! - Radius  502.7 #383 12:26AM
Wow! Thanks a lot buddy! It means a lot coming from you! - TheNewTrent  748.0 #224 12:29AM
I think pretty much anything I would say about changes has already been covered (number of hosts, music being too loud...) but I just wanted to say that I really like that you bring up the events MWers will be hosting. That will hopefully mean more people are showing up to them. Overall, I think for it being the first podcast it was awesome. Can't wait to see where it goes from here! - PiecesOf8  596.5 #306 7:39AM
For a first podcast it was awesome. Afterwards i really wanted to go to the next episode. But its been mentioned if it could be uploaded sooner to keep up with real time. Overall it was great and cant wait for the next one - dmanzo425  329.4 #684 9:05AM
Agreed! If they could be uploaded sooner it would be perfect! - PiecesOf8  596.5 #306 9:47AM
Agree with everyone about the music! I say take out the music completely while talking. & have like 2 main hosts. with other people in the bg to add like laughter and little comments here and there to make it more fun? I'm just trying to imagine some of the radios I like listening to lol. Also it felt like Trent was MCing and trying to involve everyone instead of everyone being cohosts. The cohosts should know when to jump in, add their info without Trent having to say like "oh ___ tell me about this." But for a first podcast it was definitely very enjoyable to listen to!

any chance you will be welcoming dogs in your outside dining area anytime soon? - MelodyMouse  4020.1 #26 12:24PM
that would be nice - DisneyDavidEMT  2059.0 #64 12:34AM
I heard a law was passed this year that permitted dogs to be allowed in any outdoor dining patio area... someone should look into if this applies lol ... - therealJackandSally  77.3 #0 7:08PM
My dog was welcome there for the MW striker night meet up on Mar 31! - MelodyMouse  4020.1 #26 1:45PM
Scotchie has dined there with us...but he also had his vest on - BombFrogFormerCM  845.3 #195 4:53PM
http://cchealth.org/eh/retail-food/dog-law-faq.php Β  I know folks love theiri pets but I still do not think this is sanitary Β from a food perspective. See the url for CA law. Unless they provide a designated pet area outside, dogs cannot lick the plates/utensils, who cleans up after a dog accident......No pets in at a restaurant for now (service dogs are the exception). Disney is excellent with their food cleanliness in the parks per the Public health inspections. DTD does not fare as well per Retaurarant inspection. Check the Health Care Agency for the current restaurant inspections. As a Public health nurse I always check to see who is keeping clean in their kitchens. Diners beware! - Plumiegirl  8578.6 #3 10:42AM
i asked for MW meet up discount on 3/31 and nobody working knew what I was taLking about but they did give me an ap discount - MelodyMouse  4020.1 #26 4:22PM

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 week of Monday April 20, 2015

CROWD PREDICTION: Back to short hours this week, and based on our Historical Crowd Index, we see mid-70s with crowds decreasing through the end of the month. There is also a chance of rain toward the end of the week which could throw a wrench in things. Friday and Sunday's have been the busiest days, but rain on Friday could cause the crowds to be significantly less. Have a great weekend! - Admin Apr 21, 2015 11:28AM



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  373.0 #559 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6934 11:53PM
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  122.6 #3044 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  224.5 #1584 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  362.1 #580 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1444.8 #99 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  181.2 #2148 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1444.8 #99 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1444.8 #99 1:06PM
thank you. No worries. I just figured out how to find my old comments to see replies :)  - bks4lou  181.2 #2148 8:21PM
