4TH ANNUAL REUNION INFO! This post will contain everything you need to know about the Reunion. I will post all updates here. This is your chance to meet new friends, put faces with usernames, and have a blast going through the Parks with people who love Disney as much as you. Special thanks to Booeve and MyPark for doing an excellent job on the Reunion logo! As you can see, our 4th Reunion will be Retro themed, so you can break out your throwback apparel on Saturday!
Friday Night May 17th 7pm - Attraction Takeovers - Meet at the Jolly Holiday in Disneyland. If you've never been on Jungle Cruise or Pirates with a large group of MouseWaiters, here is your chance! This will be the first official meet up of the weekend. So far, the list of attractions will include Jungle Cruise, Pirates, Splash Mountain, and we will have a Buzz Lightyear Meet up as well. Watch this post for updates.
MagicRace Tournament Saturday May 18 9:30am-12:30pm - This is a fun competition using our MagicRace iPhone app starting Saturday May 18 at 9:30am. The goal is to see who can ride the most attractions in 3 hours--everything is calculated and tracked through the app, and you can even chat real-time with the people who are competing. You can see everyone's progress as they race through the Park, which creates more excitement as you strategically try to get your team in the lead. We'll have 10 teams of 4, so if you want to participate, sign up now! The winning team will get a prize--if you would like to donate the official prize for this event, let me know, thanks! Sign up here
MouseWait Movie Theater Takeover MAIN EVENT! Saturday May 18 (1pm-5pm): This will be an event that you'll never forget! It will be at the UltraLuxe theater at GardenWalk. Watch the videos below for more info! Here's video #1:
Reunion Club 300 Private Suite Bowling Event Sunday May 19 at 12pm 300 Anaheim: sign up for the chance to be invited to our own PRIVATE SUITE (Club 300) with 9 private lanes, free bowling, shoes, and light appetizers. Our first event was a huge success, and everyone had tons of fun. However, space is EXTREMELY limited, and you need to sign up NOW for a chance to win. The people at 300 Anaheim are giving us one final event to try to accommodate the hundreds of people who didn't get to go last time. THIS EVENT IS FREE!
HOJO ROOM BLOCK BENEFITS: We are offering several things to people who book a room at the Hojo for the Reunion. The Hojo is giving us a special rate of $126 + tax, and if you book a room, you will get priority access to our Main Event AND the private bowling event. You will also receive a free 4th Reunion Collector's item, a limited edition virtual pin, along with MouseWait Credits added to your account. Even if you live locally, these weekends are a blast when you stay at the Resort with a big group of MouseWaiters -- just ask anyone who has done it. Don't wait, space is limited, and the Resort will be sold out that weekend!
Call the Hojo today at 714-776-6120 and ask for the MouseWait Reunion room rate.
MouseWaitRaffle: Our legendary Raffle will take place at the Main Event on Sat May 18. If you'd like to donate you can use this form - get more info about the Raffle on this post. This is one of our most popular events of the weekend. It's a way to help MouseWait, and to bless someone else with your special gift.
Host your own meetups: We're leaving blocks of time open throughout the weekend so you can schedule your own meetups. List your meet up in the Events section via mobile or the web version. Please don't schedule events during the times I mentioned above.
How it will work: Tickets for the Movie Theater Takeover will go on sale May 3! We will post a PayPal gateway, and you'll be able to pay with any major credit card or a PayPal account (a PayPal account is NOT required). If you have a Hojo reservation, you will get first priority, then we will look at the order of the people who've signed up, the distance you are traveling, and other factors -- then we will do the hard part -- select the people who can attend. All three events are limited due to space, so it is imperative that you take action if early if you want to attend. The Main Event will be a ticketed (paid) event, the other two will be free.
Once you are confirmed for the events, we will send you a link for deeply discounted Disneyland Tickets courtesy of the Disneyland Resort. The Disneyland Resort will be offering discounted tickets for MouseWaiters who attend the Reunion! The tickets will be good May 14-27 (Reunion Weekend is May 17-19). We will have discounted Twilight tickets, one day tickets, and multi-day Park Hoppers. Disney really goes above and beyond to help us with our events. Their special events team is first class. I've promoted several celebrity events over the years in large arenas, and none of the venues were as helpful or professional as the CMs at the Disneyland Resort.
