✈Condor Flatsβ›½: (Long, but worth the read!) I've been wanting to share some interesting information about the Condor Flats area of DCA with you all that I LOVED finding out! Hopefully it's new to some, as it was to me! : ) As usual with Disney, nothing placed into a land is by mistake, there is a story in the details. This "land" is of course a dedication to the evolution of aviation in CA---and the buildings are not random in the least. They are all replicas of aircraft hangers and meant to represent the history of the aircraft hanger. Starting with (photo 1), is a tent structure to represent the very early days, when test pilots worked on their planes and equipment under such shaded structures. Going next to (photo 2:'Fly N' Buy') the tents then evolved into basic wood structures that were styled like a very large garage and would often doubled as gas stations for cars, and the first wood framed control towers were built as seen next door. (Photo 3:The restroom building) By the 1930's they the first hangers dedicated to aircrafts with large sliding doors, still boxy and low to the ground. (Photo 4: Taste Pilots Grill) As aviation went through a lot of changes during World War II, the first of what we know as modern hangers were created in the 1940's. (Photo 5: Soarin' Over CA) Finally, during the space age and area of the jumbo jet, the hangers became massive and with ample room for these giant birds. (Photo 6: The painted 30 and runway of Condor Flats) Lastly, have you noticed the runway painted on the ground and the marking of 30 in front of the tent hanger? The 30 represents the direction the runway is pointing towards. So runway 30 points at roughly 300 degrees, with 360 degrees being due North. ....I hope this, while pretty long has proved interesting and will make you look a little closer at this beautiful area the next time you walk through! 😊

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 June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



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  456.9 #442 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7068 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  130.6 #2942 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  237.2 #1438 5:04PM
I hope to be down at the end of August or first part of September. Which would you choose? - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 10:48PM
Sounds like you'll be there for Disneyland half marathon weekend  - MarshaMouse  4429.5 #23 7:41PM
thanx for the opportunity - MommyandBash  109.2 #3345 6:18PM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here
