Okay... I'm literally scared to post this because of the repercussions, but I have to admit. I didn't know it was super taboo to use your flash on rides and have maybe done it once or twice. Sooooooo, why exactly is it so bad to do it? Is it like museum status where it ruins the colors or something. Sorry blonde question I know. Lol

It ruins the experience for other guests. I have been on POTC where it felt like a strobe light at a disco. At least I remembered how to do the hustle. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #86 8:33PM
Great minds think alike! :) - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #308 8:37PM
You've all done the hustle in POTC? - phillip..  1356.5 #132 8:39PM
Oh we found the new planking pic! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  346.7 #704 9:06PM
I agree that it ruins the experience and the view especially on POTC. Just turn the flash off people. - MikeyMouse  148.0 #2788 8:47AM
Good to know! I didn't realize how taboo it was until I joined mw and noticed how many people complianed about that being a problem. I'm glad I know now so I don't ruin other people's experience. :) - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 8:36PM
I didn't know either till I started hanging out around here. And I believe I heard it first from MSG - phillip..  1356.5 #132 8:48PM
Another public service MW offers! Perspective! - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #221 11:22PM
They even tell you several times (both live and Pre-recorded) when you are seated in the boat on POTC that there are no flash pictures. We often mimic the recording with our pirate voices, "...and please, no flash pictures! Now off with ya!" lol - RadioMaverick  1248.0 #142 4:50AM
How could someone not know this or understand why? Every attraction you go to you are generally reminded more than once not use flash photography. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1055 12:02PM
@NNKA - I think she knew she wasn't supposed to, she just wanted to know the specific reason (i.e. similar to preserving an art piece, or simply being courteous to others) - Alicewhoareyou  2703.9 #52 12:04PM
@alicewhoareyou. You would be correct. I knew they told you not to on most rides, but thought it had something to do with the actual ride and possibly damaging it, not people eyeballs. ;) - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 12:16PM
It is so you don't catch the people making out on the rides! Silly!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Deltachiq  1244.3 #144 8:51PM
To me, it ruins my experience on an attraction when there's a flash going off. - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #308 8:32PM
If you need your flash, it's a dark ride. Dark rides are dark for reasons. Besides, there's that annoying spot burned into the retinas of those around you who are unfortunate enough to be subjected to your flash. - susieQzee  555.8 #379 8:35PM
I can't say for the official rules but for me personally since a lot of the rides are dark it really hurts my eyes and can cause some people health issues. Its just common curtsy to just go without the flash. =) Thanks for being honest. - tiggertwin  332.9 #755 8:44PM
Thank you for your honest yet respectful response. Like I said, I have only done it once or twice, but it's so enlightening to know that I was potentially ruIning others experience. Thank you! - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 8:53AM
It Also Deteriorates The Animatronics. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #66 8:51PM
I have heard them come on the loud speaker on potc to tell people to not use flash - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  346.7 #704 9:08PM
We should learn to say it another languages for them! Lol! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  346.7 #704 9:14PM
Like Mike said, it ruins the experience and also, its courteous for others who are trying to experience the attraction also. I've been blinded on POTC when someone tried to turn around in the front row to take a picture of something that had already past and used their camera's flash. Don't believe me, ask SueBayou - BaseballMickey  7854.3 #11 9:15PM
I can't believe that people would have to ask this question...to me it's a no-brainer. People who use a flash when there are others on the attraction are terribly selfish and insensitive. - msdizmaui  743.5 #266 10:14PM
Uhhhhhhhh..... Thank you.... I never thought of myself as an insensitive and selfish person, but thanks for the insight. - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 8:40AM
It's easy . If they wanted flash they would of added a strobe light! - Hendizl  2855.0 #48 10:54PM
Mr. Toad's wild rave! *unz unz unz* πŸšΆπŸƒπŸšΆπŸ’ƒ - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #128 11:05PM
Disco! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.0 #43 11:41PM
I would like to see scottermike gettin down with his bad self on that ride haha - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 8:58AM
Same could be said about phone lights on dark attractions. It's weird to travel around madam leota with a glowing thing that the "spirits" aren't controlling. I try hard not to use my phone unless we are stuck for awhile - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 11:11PM
Most people know to turn off their light up devices too like phones or neck lanyards or ears. I was ready to scream on the day when they gave the light up ears away for fantasmic, so many people would not turn them off. You just need to treat your fellow attraction riders with the same respect you want and hopefully you can see what could bother others. - secretagentangel  5606.5 #23 11:17PM
Mine would turn off on dark attractions automatically - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 11:22PM
But aren't the light up ears for GWTS? We Never turn our ears off for Fantasmic because we like the glow! - hueydeweyandlouie  73.6 #4137 11:45PM
The Glow Ears do automatically turn off in attractions, but are also turned on at certain points of the attraction. Example: POTC during the canons exchange in fire. - RadioMaverick  1248.0 #142 4:56AM
Cool I didn't know the ears did that! - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 8:59AM
The flash activates the animatronics lust for human flesh. - TedW  328.1 #782 11:54PM
Ha! I like you. - bluefairy  643.8 #321 11:56PM
Ha ha! Simpsons fan? - JustCantWait  1148.5 #160 12:25PM
There has been a time or two when I've gently reminded others that their flash photography was disrupting the experience for others around them. That being said, once, years ago, on the Haunted Mansion someone was a bit over kill with the flash when the ride suddenly stopped when we were going through Madam Leota's seance room. I couldn't help but shout out, "Oooooo you broke the ride because you were using the flash!" Everyone in the room started chuckling, the ride continued, and there were no more flashes. 😊 - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1055 4:40AM
Many people don't realize that more often than not, the flash ruins the photo as well. You really don't need a flash anyway. - RadioMaverick  1248.0 #142 5:00AM
More often than not, the flash ruins the photo as well. And you'll find that you really don't need a flash for a great photo. - RadioMaverick  1248.0 #142 5:06AM
Very true. At first when I didn't realize how taboo it was I used my flash like twice on TLMM and all of my pictures turned out crappy. I never use flash now. Because of picture quality and the enjoyment of other guests. - BellesLibrary  412.0 #550 8:44AM
I would hate to think you would fear to ask. I'm glad you know now, I didn't really know how big of a deal it was until MW as well lol I guess I didn't notice too much - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 12:21PM
When people use flash on dark rides especially on POTC I just want to throw their phone or camera in the water. So annoying when suddenly there is a bright light. - PrincessAuroraMomma  598.9 #350 8:49PM
It's very distracting for everyone else wanting to enjoy the attraction and it kills the special effects. - Witchie77  377.5 #612 8:51PM
I have had that happen to me to when going on the ride and when they would not stop someone from the ride asked whoever it was to quit. They do have cameras on the ride and people watching - alphathedog4  154.3 #2688 8:59PM
I alway want to take the camera and throw it lol - lisaw  164.0 #2543 9:02PM
I got one worse then flash on potc... On our anniversary we rode behind some inconsiderate fools chomping on sour cream and cheddar ruffles.. The smell people the smell!! And I happen to love those chips.. My husband finally checked the dude and his girl but it ruined my favorite ride - nurseclick  66.0 #4336 9:18PM
I'm sure you have experienced temporary blindness as a result of a bright light being shined in your eyes (such as a flash). It interferes with the ability of others to enjoy the attraction but also, if you had to be evacuated from a dark ride with temporary blindness, that's a safety issue. - MoonWillow  381.3 #602 9:29PM
We experienced this a lot today. Darn rookies. And yes it hurts they eyes and distracts from the ride. - TangledsDad  256.4 #1315 10:00PM
I yell at people in a deep voice when they use flash to startle them 😊 effective, /and/ entertaining. πŸ˜ƒ - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #214 11:09PM
What's the best/funniest/snarkiest thing to yell at flashers? - Westcoast  174.7 #2359 11:27PM
FOOLISH MORTALS! Your flash photography burned my eyes. Your camera's path now lies past the gates of DOOM - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #214 11:38PM
Snarkiest?And yelling? MWers are extremely polite. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.0 #43 11:45PM
We rode Space Mountain once with a guy that kept taking pictures of himself. Worst ride ever! - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #487 11:50PM
I think the only bordering on acceptable instance is if the ride is actually stopped, like for a walk off. I once rode with a fellow mw'er who will remain nameless, and she took several flash pictures on haunted during the NBC overlay. Despite my telling her to stop, and the cm on the loudspeaker doing so as well, she kept doing it. I was so embarrassed. 😳 - bluefairy  643.8 #321 11:56PM
On my last trip I was with a family member who took a photo on a dark ride and the flash went off. I kinda freaked out on her. I was mortified. Thank MW! 😊 - MousekaNinja  422.4 #537 3:22AM
Sometimes people just make a mistake, like forgetting to turn off the automatic flash, it's the deliberate repeat offenders that need a talking to! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.8 #321 5:36AM
Gosh, I have an old home video from 2006 of a Disneyland trip, and I watch it all the time! Well Shelby and I used to crack up about this, we recorded haunted mansion NBC, and some kids a couple doom biggies ahead of us kept taking flash photos. The ride actually stopped, and they stopped the music and a lady in a nasally voice came on a loud speaker and said 'no flash please, no flash.' And it just went on after! Lol so it's always bugged me but now I chuckle when I hear that still :) - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #128 3:32AM
They even tell you several times (both live and Pre-recorded) when you are seated in the boat on POTC that there are no flash pictures. We often mimic the recording with our pirate voices, "...and please, no flash pictures! Now off with ya!" lol - RadioMaverick  1248.0 #142 4:58AM
I was just thinking that. You are told by the recordings on the rides. Once after just being seated on the Little Mermaid ride, I was checking my camera. The CM immediately said "No flash pictures under the sea." - Lelundrial  687.0 #294 7:45AM
I have spoken to City Hall numerous times and glad to see the CM's saying something on TLM since there is no recording. My husband always says very loudly as we load "No flash photography". LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.0 #43 9:03AM
I think on HM if you take flash photography the ride stops. It has happened to me a few times when there's other people who are taking flash photography. I get annoyed and yell at them especially this one time when I had to use the restroom & that person wouldn't stop πŸ˜‚ - KladiaDisneyNinja  292.0 #995 9:52AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.0 #43 11:28AM
The worst case of this I have ever seen was on Soarin. Someone was taking flash pictures from start to finish. That seats a whole lot of people. Kinda ruined for every one of them. I hope no one was a first timer. - Tom  12016.2 #5 11:34AM
Oooh I saw this happen too! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3379.0 #43 12:47PM
I was on Pirates in front of a couple who took tons of flash pictures the entire ride and it was totally distracting and annoying. Also, people need to turn off their Glow with the Show ears, firework ears, giant flashing Mickey head necklaces, etc. on dark rides!!! - JustCantWait  1148.5 #160 12:22PM
I said this last night too and then was reminded that the GWTS ears are supposed to now go off by themselves in dark rides, they did not do that in the beginning. So hopefully at least those won't be on during the ride too.:) - secretagentangel  5606.5 #23 12:39PM
I was on POTC as well when this person in the front took pictures of basically everything he saw. Even though I have been on this ride a lot of times before, it really just ruined the experience. - joyful_belle131  59.4 #4524 12:55PM
Yes it was from mw that I learned this as well. So now I do not take my shirt off on attractions 😁 - Villescas8  607.0 #344 1:27PM
I did it once a few years ago on HM. Then a cm came on the loudspeaker to tell me knock it off. Never did it again 😜 - ima-pirateswife  822.9 #231 1:42PM
So, if you're stopped for more than a few minutes, is that an exception to the rule? We were stuck on HM for a short time and I broke the rule and took a great picture of the bride's dress and a baby buggy that I'd never noticed before. I didn't post it on here for fear of being blacklisted!! - nerdgirl  86.0 #3882 1:54PM

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 #322 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7404 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  175.3 #2345 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  270.8 #1178 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17910 3:45PM
Saturday's are less busy - DarthFairy  472.0 #467 2:18PM

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 #127114 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  5606.5 #23 8:10PM
