Good morning! This day in Disney history, April 18th, 1983. The Disney Channel (a pay TV network) 1st airs @7 a.m. w/a program titled "Good Morning Mickey". Other programs this day include "Mousercise", "Welcome to Pooh Corner", a mommy & me themed show called "You and Me, Kid" & a game show titled "Contraption". President Ronald Reagan wrote a letter to Disney Channel president James Jimirro (pictured below), expressing gratitude & excitement about the fledgling cable channel’s 1983 launch. From President Reagan, May 27, 1983: “Dear Mr. Jimirro: I was delighted to learn of the debut of the Disney Channel—creating new opportunities for millions of American cable subscribers to enjoy the informative, entertaining, and wholesome family entertainment for which Walt Disney and the organization he founded is so justly famous throughout the world. …he was a true pioneer—always seeking to enrich the world’s treasury of joy, and always finding new ways. The Disney Channel is in the best tradition of the spirit of pioneering…. I wish you all success, and I just know that Walt Disney, a fellow Californian whom I knew and admired, will be smiling down on you from his perch on one of the brightest rainbows in heaven. God bless you. Sincerely, Ronald Reagan.” Only airing 16 hours a day, the channel will later expand to 18 in April 1984. In December 1986, Disney Channel will commence full-time broadcasting 24 hours everyday.

What's your favorite show? Do you think it's content is as good as the original lineup?

My sons favorite show is Jak eand the neverland pirates. - tiggiehaley  100.4 #3647 7:25AM
The Disney Channel has a lot to offer! But to be honest, I don't watch many shows they offer now.. Mostly I wait until they show classic Disney movies, which they do from time to time. I would like to say that Ronald Reagan was my hero and one of my favorite U.S. presidents. I was aware of his relationship with Walt Disney, but this letter is really cool and I didn't know about that. I think it's very fitting and demonstrates Reagan's love for what Disney has brought to this country and the world. Thank you SMK! This is a great Disney history and a great story! You're awesome!!! - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 7:41AM
I remember those shows! I mousercised every morning! - AZDisney  610.4 #343 7:52AM
Good morning. You find the most amazing videos! I remember saying that those pay channels will never catch on - Tealtownfan  1152.2 #162 7:59AM
It's on ALL the time at our house (along with Disney Jr). The mini and I love Jake, Little Einsteins, and Sofia the first! - DisneyLuvinMama  372.2 #625 8:03AM
I watch Disney Channel a lot. My favorite show was Wizards of Waverly Place. I like Shake it Up. - Sharkgrrl19  256.5 #1325 8:59AM
They should bring back Mickeys house of mouse. I loved that show - futureCMChristina  33.2 #5851 8:59AM
I second - TwinkleJenn  103.5 #3597 9:08AM
I loved Mousercise! - Mickeymouse28  367.1 #638 9:07AM
Awesome!! - PixiePirateMaid  355.3 #680 10:04AM
Maybe it's because it brings back so many good childhood memories. But I definitely like the early days of the Disney channel better than today's. They used to show song of the south clips and and I liked the cheesy segment of Dtv. I can do with out all these new teeny bopper shows. - phillip...  1361.7 #134 10:05AM
I always wanted the DC, but the parents wouldn't pay for it. I did get to see it when they had free preview weekends. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #297 10:11AM
My oldest and I enjoyed the concerts they would have in the late 90's and early 2000's. Many had been taped from DL and WDW. - HalfCaff  582.8 #361 10:12AM
We couldn't afford the full cable packages when disney channel debuted. Once in awhile the cable company would throw in a free preview on an open channel. It was the first time I watched dumbo. In more recent years my daughter would watch Stanley, Rolie Polie Olie and New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. - mightymike  272.8 #1174 10:17AM
I used to love Mousercise! I still hum the "cool down" song they use at the end. My son now watches Disney Jr. - MsKa-chow  18.9 #7804 10:20AM
I've grown up watching Disney Channel. I started watching the old live action shows of Winnie the Pooh and Dumbo to the Care Bears all the way to today (its one a few channels I watch). I still even remember when they used to show Vault Disney, which was a treat for me to stay up that late on a school night. Its been fun to watch this channel grow and change over time and I'll always be a fan. - BaseballMickey  7888.1 #11 10:29AM
Yes Vault Disney! I couldn't remember what it was called. Lol - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.2 #171 10:52AM
Oh how I miss vault Disney!! I loved the intro when it started! - CuriousAsAlice7  174.5 #2370 11:42AM
I have fond memories of being a kid and watching the disney channel. - madsdad  1868.2 #97 11:53AM
I really enjoyed reading this, especially the letter from Ronald Reagan! My kids love watching the Disney channel and their current faves are Phineas & Ferb and Jake. Thanks for the wonderful post Duchess! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  916.3 #206 11:59AM
I don't remember Contraption. But I knew I woke up too early if You and Me Kid was still on. I LOVED Good Morning, Mickey. Now I watch YouTube for all the classic cartoons. Have to educate my kids somehow :-P - brigeet  590.2 #357 4:26PM
Oh my gosh! Take a look at that vintage logo! I still go on YouTube from time to time to watch the opening sequences for Good Morning Mickey and Donald Duck Presents. Such wonderful childhood memories from weekends with my grandparents! Thank you so much for such a lovely nostalgic post! - cmogo  74.4 #4135 5:51PM
Thanks for the info! So awesome that the president wrote such a heartfelt letter! One more thing I would have no idea about without your post! - BriarBeauty  121.7 #3242 8:06PM
Oh ya I forgot you use to have to pay for the Disney Channel! Well I didn't, my parents did. Probably why I forgot... - Kontorted  183.9 #2246 8:26PM
We didn't have cable then. Great letter from Ronnie :) i loved the Disney Channel when my eldest was little. Awesome shows- and it was great fun to get to see them at Playhouse Disney. Rolie Polie Olie, PB&J Otter, Winnie The Pooh and Bear In The Big Blue House - misschurro...  7251.2 #14 8:30PM
I remember those shows. I miss that Disney channel! Not too big on the shows they have now. - Jacqueline  580.0 #363 8:38PM

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

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  469.8 #477 11:41PM

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 the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. 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. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105807 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  6424.7 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127447 10:15AM
That just means it's time to start planning! 😀 - AngiMouse  104.9 #3565 1:02PM
Ours is blank too with no plans anytime soon. That's why I come to ☺️☺️☺️ - DisneyMom13  311.6 #874 7:30PM
