#Tip: I've seen several posts about starting a pressed penny collection, and I thought I would offer a little friendly advice since I have some photo examples. First, choose only pre-1982 pennies. These are made of copper and when pressed, will not have other "silver" metals show through. The examples below are my own. The ones on the left were gathered at WDW last week, made from "good" pennies. The Wreck it Ralph example on the right was made on the fly with a new penny. As you can see, it's already looking pretty sad. I hear a lot of people say they use new pennies because they are shiny, don't do it. To get the old pennies shiny, I simply squirt them with ketchup, let it sit for maybe 10 minutes, then scrub with a toothbrush. Rinse them off and then buff with a paste of baking soda and water. It takes a few minutes of elbow grease, but don't they look nice?! Stop in at City Hall for a list of machines/pennies and consider buying a penny folder for storing your goodies, runs about $7.

Thanks! Great tip! I love them shiny...but the wreck it Ralph is kinda purdy too (just not with the shiny guys!) - TinkerSchelle  2046.1 #82 3:37PM
Agreed :) - eviljules  1445.4 #122 3:38PM
Great info thanks for posting! - Admin 5:09PM

I have noticed that as well. With taking my daughter next week for 3 days, we will be spending some time on pressing pennies. I need to get the list so I can see what I have already. We need a new book too. - LuvsTigger  1675.4 #105 1:42PM

Those are great tips!! I was wondering why the ones my daughter got looked so much worse than I remembered them. Thanks!! - MissMolly  1386.7 #132 1:53PM
I probably made about 20 of them before I realized why they were funky-looking! 😁 - bluefairy  643.8 #324 2:08PM

Great info, it's the vinegar in the ketchup so you can just use vinegar as well πŸ˜€ - ShariRenee  10351.2 #8 2:10PM
The ketchup "sticks" to the pennies better, IMO. - bluefairy  643.8 #324 2:12PM

Thanks for this! I hate that silver thing, but didn't know what the solution was until I saw this post. - JustCantWait  1148.5 #165 3:03PM
You can also soak them in vinegar to make them shiny. - MeridasHair  346.5 #711 3:09PM
I've actually tried this, and other methods, and sometimes the vinegar turns them black, I'm not sure why. - bluefairy  643.8 #324 5:08PM

Thanks for posting, I always have a roll or two of cleaned non zinc pennies. When I see kids pressing pennies I give them some of my cleaned ones. I'm at 147 pressed coins. I store my pennies in a Davey Jones treasure chest purchased from pieces of eight store.✌❀🐭 - Hop-Low  634.5 #330 8:51AM
That is an impressive collection. It's also very thoughtful of you to have the clean pennies on hand. - aidensmama  340.3 #729 9:08AM
I gave some out on this last trip, one kid had a birthday button, so I gave him the quarters too. - bluefairy  643.8 #324 3:54PM

Great tips! - HarvesterProducts  261.6 #1284 9:49AM
Great tips, we did this before our last trip, but got so wrapped up in the magic that we didn't even use any. We also soaked them in Coca Cola for a while. - NickDoubleyew  1094.0 #176 9:51AM
Sorry, had to bump, but I wanted to add my two cents (hehe). I used all of your tips and they worked really well cleaning the pennies, but there was still some black gunk stuck on some of them so I went searching for another solution to get off the remaining gunk. And I discovered... an eraser!! Worked wonders. All you have to do is rub it over the dirty parts and it comes right off and leaves penny just like new. Hope this helps someone. Thanks for all the tips! Very excited to use my new shiny pennies on our next trip :D - lohofosho  785.0 #248 1:17PM
Wow! Thank you, my son just started collecting during our last trip in April! - BombFrogFormerCM  1034.2 #187 1:58PM

I just called them to price out our potential trip in June. Chris was so nice and the MW savings are phenomenal! Still waiting on work vacation approval to reserve the room!  - HNL2SFO  296.3 #974 1:26PM
What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  155.3 #2686 3:57PM
Hi @@@@@@Admin I filled out the form for 2/28 at Hojo and haven't seen any Credits. I also sent you a Support Ticket last week. Would you please look into this? As always, Thanks  @@@@@@Admin - Winnie111286  17534.3 #2 10:50PM

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 #105887 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  6446.6 #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 #325 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7438 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  176.2 #2346 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1186 5:04PM
