So I know that just being a CM has to be one of the best jobs in the world, but I'm curious what attraction, character or job is wanted the most when you are hired. What's most desirable or do you really not care as long as it's at the Happiest Place on Earth? 😊

I would to be that person that strolls up and down Main Street visiting with people and trading pins and answering questions. If only that was a real job... - JungleBum  1017.0 #191 7:21PM
Best job ever, you know if it were real of course.. - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 8:17PM
Baloo?! Is that you?! I really miss you in the lounge! Where have you been?πŸ˜” - simba77  323.3 #809 4:51PM
His post is from feb πŸ˜” - MissMolly  1355.3 #134 9:49AM
Train engineer or conductor - Docdanracy  299.0 #954 10:42AM
Most popular attraction wise are Tower bellhop and Mansion butler. - CM_Shadowgamer  2563.2 #57 9:58AM
My uncle was a HM butler. He said it's pretty awesome. I would love to have that as my job. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #343 10:04AM
I've heard this is because those are the only two attractions where you don't have to smile all the time, is this truly the reason those positions are so coveted? - MallE  164.3 #2540 9:24AM
Of course on Space Mountain, that way I'd be near it all the time!!! - Superspacemountainfan  92.2 #3767 8:34PM
Jungle Cruise Skipper. I think that one is the most popular and desired when people apply for attractions. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2531.0 #59 9:14AM
As for me, I was just happy to be placed in Adventureland! It's my home and I can't imagine working anywhere else in DL - IDVandalSkipperCM  2531.0 #59 9:17AM
I think you really have to have an extra special outgoing nature to be a Jungle Cruise Skipper, love how each one is different. - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 12:40PM
Yes... It takes a special person for sure. Went on it today and our skipper was really into it. Was so fun... But I always have fun on that ride. - joybells  214.6 #1846 9:43PM
Sorcerer Mickey in Fantasmic! - Alicewhoareyou  2703.9 #52 8:18PM
Oh gosh now you got me started!!! Okay, first on list, I'd love to be the CM story teller in the Peter Pan room in innovations! I went there in December and was basically saying everything word for word lol. Next, I'd like to be friends with Wendy Darling! Get to hang out with Peter Pan all day? Yes please!! Plus, if it keeps idneySay isneyDay from being her, whoop whoop! ;P next would be photo pass, being a photographer, I'd love to have a camera with me! Only thing, I'm kinda shy and would feel rude an annoying asking people if they'd like their picture taken lol I'd be too awkward. But hey, never know! And then there's shops on main st USA!! One, I love their costuming, two, I love the constant music playing, and the hussel and hussel of things, it takes me to a happy place :) - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #128 9:04PM
Oh yes my number one wish would be to be a photographer. Capturing everyone's favorite moments for them for the rest of their lives. - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 9:51PM
I was a character 13 years ago and it was and still is the best job I ever had. You get to make dreams come true and be a hero to someone every day! How can you beat that?!? - CowgirlJessie  162.6 #2565 10:00PM
Not sure which character u were but I'm dying to know that if the characters with a mask smile underneath when getting their picture taken a thousand times :) I know silly thing to wonder - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 10:07PM
Great question Amy! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3382.5 #43 10:54PM
amyb1076 I definitely smiled ALL the time! You forget that they can't see you the person. Plus, everyone was always so excited to see you that it sometimes got emotional! I cried out of joy many times under that mask! - CowgirlJessie  162.6 #2565 10:09AM
That is just awesome!! What a great feeling. Thanks for answering πŸ˜€ - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 10:29AM
Always wondered. Does it get hot or stuffy under the mask? - davetyee  331.7 #761 10:41AM
It gets very hot!! No getting past that. And I was working at WDW. Oh the humidity!! You do get used to it though. - CowgirlJessie  162.6 #2565 10:56AM
I heard a rumor that often times Minnie is actually a guy in the costume and Mickey a girl, and the same goes for the rest of the male and female characters. I don't remember the reason for this but it just seems so weird to believe, is if true or just another Disney myth? - MallE  164.3 #2540 9:31AM
I want to serve at club 33 or napa rose. Currently trying to work my way up there :) - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #200 5:30PM
What do you do currently? - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 9:04AM
Great question! I've always wondered this... - MissMolly  1355.3 #134 8:51AM
we always play this game! what attraction or job would you want to work and why. mine is always main street balloon vendorπŸŽˆπŸ˜ƒ - OhanaPhoto  6283.3 #20 9:12AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You don't say? LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3382.5 #43 9:18AM
hahaha! can you believe it??? - OhanaPhoto  6283.3 #20 10:14AM
I love gadgets for me it is innovations - Enome  9.4 #11725 9:15AM
I've heard that tower of terror is quite popular. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #291 9:16AM
If I couldn't do what I plan to major in, baking and pastry, then I'd want to work in Fantasyland or NOS. Then... become a plaid. Haha - PiecesOf8  608.4 #343 9:45AM
Oh my stars, I've always wanted to go to culinary school. So jealous! I went to a sauce class and learned how to make hollandaise sauce and thought I was pretty fancy! lol - Cinderella_Schnooks  3382.5 #43 10:37AM
I'm still not 100% on it. I still need to take some intro classes at my community college before I go to a real culinary school. As much as I love making desserts I still have to decide if that's the career route I want to go. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #343 11:29AM
I totally understand. They say choosing which direction to go and then if you choose desserts it's very difficult. Best of luck to you! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3382.5 #43 10:38PM
Either a Princess or a train conductor :) - PrincessSierra  7.4 #13916 11:52AM
I want to dance in the parade. - Armenda  1165.4 #158 7:17PM
Me too 😊 - MoonWillow  381.3 #603 7:45PM
Being a sweeper so that I could talk to guests. Or a bellhop at tot so I could freak people out. I would love that. - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 7:28PM
I always since a little girl wanted to work on the POTC ride. - PixiePirateMaid  355.2 #679 8:00PM
I used to want to be the rainbow slinky, then a swinging character in the Pixar parade, but now I think that being a Monorail driver would be fun for a bit. - Linzee  1341.3 #135 8:07PM
Flynn Ryder - Mouse4life  1681.4 #104 9:08PM
I have always wanted to work one of the fantasy land rides... Snow White, Pinocchio, Peter pan, Mr. Toad... I have just always wanted to push the buttons!!! Lol But now that I'm older, I would want to work space mountain or Indiana Jones! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1307.3 #137 9:15PM
That's funny. Me too! (about the buttons part) - cesium55  531.8 #410 11:00PM
Steamboat Willie in fantasmic or Snow White :P - Snow33  195.2 #2092 11:10PM
25 years ago I went to my interview... After assessing my character, my speaking 2 languages and ASL, I was hired to Department 935 "Tomorrowland Attractions"! Best junior/senior high school jobs plus seasonal during college! - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 11:15PM
I'd like to be the person (assuming a plaid) who gets to host the guests of the Dream Suites and be part of all the magic of that stay and stay overnight! Best slumber party host EVER!!!!✨ - TinkerSchelle  2041.8 #81 11:56PM
That is so you! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3382.5 #43 12:23AM
Can you nominate me please???!!!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜ - TinkerSchelle  2041.8 #81 11:25PM
Yes! Only if you admit you just bumped this post with your comment and take funny castle pics. LOL πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3382.5 #43 11:34PM
I am TinkerSchelle and I'm a Bumpaholic!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ now nominate me for the Dream Suite plaid slumber party position and take a castle picture with me!πŸ˜‚ - TinkerSchelle  2041.8 #81 4:42PM
You make me laugh. If be happy to nominate you if I knew how 😁 - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 9:06AM
I would do anything they need me to do just to be hired there :) But my choice would be a plaid or a character handler...I want to do something that impacts people and their visit there. - DumboGal70  122.8 #3213 10:16AM
(Character host!) - IDVandalSkipperCM  2531.0 #59 10:26AM
Awe thanks for the correct title :) - DumboGal70  122.8 #3213 9:30PM
I would take any CM position. But my 14 year old dreams of being Belle while going to college! - lassengirl  159.9 #2601 5:12PM
Oooooooooh I'm curious to know too!!! - tish  264.7 #1248 8:53AM
I would love to organize the character meet and greets :) Another question, can u request when u interview what u want to do? Or do u just get placed where u are needed? I definitley want to work there one day, even if its not for 15 years after my daughter graduates haha.. - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 7:16PM
When I interviewed they asked me if I wanted DCA or Disneyland and if I wanted to be on attractions, food, or merchandice, and then they placed you where they needed you from there. - stubb7  223.1 #1726 8:17PM
So awesome.. I just can't imagine getting to play at Disneyland everyday and making people happy as my "job" I can only dream.. - MinnieTinker  652.8 #313 8:22PM
Usually you interview for a certain operation like stores, food, etc. they will ask you we're you would like to work. Once your assigned a location you could still be temporally moved during the high season. - HollywoodGlitter  526.0 #414 9:37PM
If I were to work there I would love to be in the displays department. Fixing the store windows and setting up for the different holidays. I love that kind of stuff.. And love seeing it done with Disney magic. - joybells  214.6 #1846 9:50PM
They asked me when I applied what department I wanted to be in. I eventually had a dream of working building/designing the sets on the rides so I stayed behind the scenes in entertainment costuming. Not glamorous or anything but a foot in the door. I still would pick that vs being out in the park though...dealing with some crazy people=no thanks lol. However--maybe I'd want to be a plaid if given the option - hillarygardner  24.0 #6843 1:17AM
Window displays absolutely - hillarygardner  24.0 #6843 1:18AM
I applied for attraction host back in 1986 and was hired for Tomorrowland Attractions! My favorite attraction that I was assigned to was Star Tours because of the guest interactions! - BombFrogFormerCM  1025.4 #190 9:09AM

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 #127090 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  5757.6 #22 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 #7391 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  175.8 #2341 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.9 #1181 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17927 3:45PM
Saturday's are less busy - DarthFairy  474.2 #466 2:18PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75277 12:12PM
