Stop it! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - LaPearleNoir  2355.4 #71 9:58PM

Free water at the tommorowland ball! - Mouse4life  1681.4 #105 12:20PM
Ewwww! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.9 #302 12:27PM
I always quench my thirst with that ball. I usually stick my tongue out and lick it until I get enough water and I'm full. It's the best - Hendizl  2872.3 #49 1:11PM
Goes good with pupcorn, I bet. - aidensmama  340.3 #734 2:02PM
But better with turkey legsπŸ— πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro...  7452.4 #12 7:58PM
Very generous! Thank you. There is a restroom behind the Tour Guides booth in DL that is always clean, never a line, and private (you can lock the door and it's your own restroom!). And now it will become the MW restroom... - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 8:42AM
Now where is the Tour Guide Booth? - HalfCaff  583.4 #367 11:35AM
Oh it wouldn't be near as fun if I told you!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 11:52AM
Right next to City Hall, I think - MissMolly  1386.7 #134 11:58AM

LaPearleNoir I see what you did there! - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 12:07AM
Great RAK! Add me please. I'm sure many MWers know this, but my tip is to bring your own water bottle and fill up with free cold, filtered water at Rancho de Zocalo and Tomorrowland Terrace. - JustCantWait  1148.5 #165 6:15PM
Great idea! - Boundin  792.8 #244 9:57PM
Please add me! My tip is that if you want to enjoy the ambiance of the Blue Bayou without paying the crazy expensive dinner prices then call ahead and make the latest possible reservation (9:30ish) and go in for dessert! Yummy treats and easier on the wallet. Thanks :) - SteamboatMinnie  310.6 #890 8:59PM
I never knew this! Thank you for the tip, I will do this in June when I go for my son's birthday. - Momof3crazyboys  165.2 #2552 2:39PM
Nice RAK my secret is order to go Nachos at whitewater snacks, you get about double and a must do for me is stare at the castle for a bit! Love it - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 4:37PM
thanks for the tip! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 5:46PM
Where is whitewater snacks - sunshinegrl  348.8 #710 6:17PM
White water snacks is in california adventure I believe - jamielynn  163.3 #2578 10:18PM
I always wanted to go there but can a regular ap holder go through the hotel in dca? Or do I have to go around? - annjay07  170.8 #2459 11:50PM
It's entering the grand from grizzly area then turn left. By pool area. And anyone can go in and out with a ticket to parks - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 12:01AM
Thx Marshamouse I always thought only hotel guests could come in and out. I will try these on thurs or Friday :) - annjay07  170.8 #2459 11:33PM
My tip is for the pin traders out there! Any pins that have a little silver Mickey on them are employee only pins and cannot be bought. Only traded! - DisneyDreamer93  16.7 #8411 6:22PM
Please add me. My tip is, we shop first at the World of Disney store and them go into the parks. Both parks has a place you can drop all your shopping good (except food) and pick it up before you leave. That way you don't have to get a lock. When you enter Disneyland it will be on your left side before the tunnel at the little shop. At California Adventure you can drop it off at Elias Co. and pick it up at the Five and Dime. And thanks for the great RAK :-) - Goofnaround  22.4 #7198 6:28PM
That's is a really helpful tip! Thankyou! - lohofosho  785.0 #250 8:00PM
Great tip! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 8:02PM
Love doing this too, they also hold your winnings from paradise pier games like big stuff pillows and characters that you win - MarshaMouse  5036.1 #27 12:03AM
If you ask at City Hall there are actually a few places in the park that will do this for you. - dolewhipkarlita  94.6 #3757 10:52PM
My tip is if u are planning on buying anything at DCA or Disneyland at the five and Dime store in DCA they will hold ur pruchase. - macbook  124.8 #3201 7:22PM
Please enter me for CourtyAstroBlisters. My secret tip is to pay someone $1.00 so you can get a dole whip without waiting in line πŸ˜‚. But seriously, watch fireworks from the back of fantasyland. Then get in the line near mad hatter. Makes a short wait for Peter pan or mr toads wild ride. - Slotherini  1079.8 #178 9:37PM
And more reasons why I call you a friend! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ thanks! - CourtyAstroBlisters  808.0 #237 9:42PM
***new winner picked*** congrats SpiritOfAdventure - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 9:48AM
Thanks! I'll do a RAK so someone can share a drink with me when the starbucks opens in DL! - SpiritOfAdventure  1057.0 #183 12:20PM
i feel like everyone on MW knows all my secrets sooo i'll say my must do every trip is to get starbucks and ride california screamin'. thanks so much for this awesome RAK! - nicoleface  1752.7 #101 9:11AM
This got buried really fast! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 11:15AM
You should move this to DL Talk to get more visibility, most don't have The Hub as their default land.πŸ˜ƒ - Linzee  1383.3 #136 11:22AM
How do you move a post? - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 11:38AM
Click the clock and then click 'MP' - Linzee  1383.3 #136 11:40AM
Thank you! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 12:01PM
Ah, so that's what MP stands for. Wasn't sure what that abbreviation was. Thanks for the info. - DisneyFan77  833.1 #229 12:07PM
Oooooh, fun RAK! Please add me. I have a bunch of tips, but the one that never fails is my "front row" view of Fantasmic tip. During the end of the 1st show, make your way over by the Haunted Mansion. Hang out there and when the 1st show ends, follow the crowds out and swoop in and grab front & center seats for the 2nd show. Grab some popcorn and enjoy the show. We've told so many friends about this and it always works. Thank you for this great RAK! - goofymom2boys  1520.0 #119 11:18AM
Awesome... How long is the wait between the shows? - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 1:16PM
I think we sat down at 10pm and the show started at either 10:30 or 10:45pm. The people who left before us said they had been sitting and holding those spots for 6 hours! Very thankful for the 30-45 min. we waited. You just have to keep your eyes closed as you pass by Murphy during the 1st show (my kids wanted to look so bad). - goofymom2boys  1520.0 #119 1:47PM
That's great! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 1:57PM
I don't really have a tip that I didn't learn here. But my must do is to look at the crowns for the princesses and wear the one that matches my hair color(blonde-aurora, red-Ariel) instead of mouse ears. - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  350.7 #702 12:04PM
Awesome RAK! I have no secrets. :) - ElSuperRaton  4469.4 #34 12:05PM
Please add me for mr mom. My tip is always walk back to your car from the parks to burn some extra calories ;)!thanks and great rak - Hendizl  2872.3 #49 1:17PM
Thanks Hendizl! No need to add me...just wanted to say awesome RAK! :) - ElSuperRaton  4469.4 #34 1:42PM
I like walking to the part and back too. So much faster than waiting for the tram. - AZDisney  610.4 #349 6:47PM
They sell Disney Dollars at City Hall - SpiritOfAdventure  1057.0 #183 12:12PM
Please add me, thank you! Our new favorite "less popular" ride is the Silly Symphony Swings. Love the music, breeze, view and short wait times. We usually ride a couple of times at least. Often you don't have to get off to keep riding. Not a secret by any means but something we enjoy. - MamaRoo  466.7 #492 12:27PM
Please add me! My tip is when at the park with little ones that you need to do ride swaps, you can get ride swaps even if you are using fastpasses and even if you go in the single rider line! So I'll go in the single rider line on radiator springs, and wait 5-10 minutes, (ask for the swap at the beginning) and then when I'm done , my hubby and another person can go on in the fastpass line using the swap. Beats waiting 90 minutes for that ride! - sunshinegates  747.0 #272 12:37PM
Please add me! By the first aid station there is Disneys Magic Lounge where kids can go to relax from the heat rest! It's Aladdin themed and nice for an air conditioned place for kids to nap while still being in the park! - ToInfinityAndBeyond1997  210.5 #1927 1:02PM
Great tip!!!!! - missariel33  2115.6 #77 4:35PM
Can adults nap on here too??? Lol - dolewhipkarlita  94.6 #3757 10:55PM
Please add me! My favorite tip is you can see the Pet Cemetary at HM if you ask a cm nicely! Thank you! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3403.5 #45 1:17PM
It this when you are entering the mansion or upon your exit? - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 1:39PM
It's on the right to the side as you enter. Love it! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3403.5 #45 1:57PM
Great RAK! My tip is to arrive before the parks open for the rope drop that way you'll get a head start on all those who arrive at the gate right at opening. - NikkiMickey  1686.3 #104 1:50PM
I'm up -- just need to get the kids moving - I would love to be there before everyone else. - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 5:45PM
Add me please. My tip I learned right here on MW but not everyone knows about it. There are lockers by Grizzly River Run that give you two hours free. They are great to store your stuff in while you ride so your phone etc. won't get wet. They are right behind where the Disney vacation kiosk is. Thank you. - aidensmama  340.3 #734 1:54PM
They should install some by splash too ;) - lohofosho  785.0 #250 5:58PM
^^Agree. I am actually considering putting all of my belongings (phone, wallet, ect.) in a locker during the 24 hr party when i want to take a nap and then lounge in the pool at the Grand. - BrerRabbit  360.8 #669 9:37PM
Add me please my must do is to buy a frozen banana!!! - Disneyrockstar  191.7 #2153 1:58PM
Please add me! My must do is immediately upon entering DL, is to head directly to POTC! I can't imagine starting anywhere else. - DreadPiratesRogers  852.9 #226 4:07PM
Great way to start and end the day! - missariel33  2115.6 #77 4:36PM
Oooh, great RAk!!! My secret tip is that babies made at DL always turn out beautiful. Oh, and if you sign up for Patina groups birthday club, the last day of the month before your birthday they will send you a $30 gift certificate to one of their dtd restaurants (Tortilla Joes, Naples, Catal). You have up to 60 days after your birthday to use it. - LittleAprilShowers  587.7 #363 4:19PM
Made there? 😳 - princessb5  190.9 #2165 4:30PM
At the hotels I presume. - aidensmama  340.3 #734 5:59PM
Lol April! I remember John jokingly saying that Judah was conceived on its a small world according to the dr! :) - Wildflower  204.5 #1997 7:22PM
Baby and mom born there get a gold pass. - mexman  12.9 #9768 8:11PM
Sorry @ mexman, not true. If it were though, I might just get preggo again to give it a shot 😜 - LittleAprilShowers  587.7 #363 8:24AM
Such an awesome RAK! My must do is take home a caprese sandwich from jolly holiday before I leave! My tip is also re jolly holiday: right before they close for the day if you buy a pastry or some coffee they will usually give away all the pastries from that day. A CM told me they have to throw them out so they try to give them away sometimes at the very end of the night! It's worked for me 3x already :) - missariel33  2115.6 #77 4:27PM
Thanks! yummy food and some possible extra's thrown in! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 5:46PM
I do the same- get one before closing to take back to the hotel, but never got it for free! Thanks for the tip! - Thumper13  516.6 #431 12:13PM
Wow awesome RAK! Please add me. My secret that I learned from here was to always look up because the detail in Disneyland and DCA is amazing! Thanks for the generous RAK. - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #671 5:59PM
Loved reading all these tips, really great idea for the RAK entry as it is helpful for all mousewaiters. No need to add me, thank you for your generosity :D - lohofosho  785.0 #250 6:08PM
Thanks! There are some great tips for everyone. - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 7:29AM
My must do for the parks is to ALWAYS wear my Minnie ears or princess crown! It makes it so magical! πŸ‘Έ - misssminnie  3.8 #26562 6:12PM
Please add me. My favorite daytime quiet time away spot with my autistic daughter are the chairs back behind the Mad Tea Party Stage by the Arcade. - MeridasHair  346.5 #716 6:39PM
Please add me. I don't think I have any secret tips, but our must-do activity is to eat at Flo's. - kimberross  505.2 #447 6:41PM
Please add me. If you go and stand in the single rider line for the cars ride and have your friend standing behind you you guys will cut the wait time in half and you can race each other - mpgonzales1991  192.0 #2149 7:11PM
Single rider line is the way to go or RSR but I once had to wait 5-10 minutes longer to ride than my friend infront of me. It just depends how many people are in the groups from the regular line. :) Single rider is also great for the Matterhorn. - aidensmama  340.3 #734 7:32PM
Please add me! Go to the desk at the end of/ exit of Jungle Cruise. Ask for the map. Its a glorious map on antiqued paper of the whole cruise layout! Really cool! - april_december  299.7 #960 7:34PM
Nice ill have to ask for that one! - ribidib  1187.7 #158 7:56PM
Is it a map you get to keep or something they just show you? - lohofosho  785.0 #250 8:01PM
You get to keep the map. Makes a great free souvenir. And frame it when you get home for a great decoration. - yellowtonka  244.7 #1469 9:30PM
That's a really great secret tip! Will definitely be asking for one on our next visit. Exciting :) - lohofosho  785.0 #250 11:06PM
Please add me! My tip is to hit toon town when it just opens at 9 am.. It's pretty empty and you can meet Mickey n Minnie first thing in the morning to start your day off right. - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #220 8:06PM
Great RAK. Please add me. I"ll make my tip coffee related. The Starbuck's line in usually long and will take a while. The coffee cart near the wharf can serve you fast, but no AP discount. Better still is Ghirardelli's, great mochas, AP discount, free chocolate, and you can watch the cool 3-D moving murals while you wait. - JenGwen323  2042.2 #84 9:28PM
Wow ubber genorus of you!! Please enter me! I would love to use this during my honeymoon in August! 😬 My secret tip is going to white water snacks and getting the half and half nachos and sitting outside on the patio and enjoying the fresh air. And during winter sitting by the big fire place in the grand warming my toes taking in the sights! Thanks again!! - CourtyAstroBlisters  808.0 #237 9:31PM
If we can add for others please add me for CAB! :) my favourite fun fact to share is the Matterhorn tree! It's shaped specifically like the Matterhorn so when you're in adventureland/NOS ect, you aren't able to see the mountain to make sure you get the 100% feel you're in different lands :) - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1403.3 #133 9:39PM
Aww thanks you my dear! 😘 - CourtyAstroBlisters  808.0 #237 9:41PM
Don't add me. Just want to say thanks for this idea. I am liking all the tips. - keepmovingforward  259.0 #1312 9:42PM
Great idea for a RAK! I'd like to share a 'must do' :) each visit I take a photo of my daughter in front of the White Rabbit's door... It's so fun to look at the photos as she has grown up throughout the years! Her first photo she was standing & as tall as the door & now she has to kneel down! It's a great way to capture memories! - DiamondInTheRough  349.6 #706 9:51PM
Aww...I do that too! Mine is still in that mini stage though...how awesome that you've captured your daughter growing up there! I can only hope to do the same :) - MissAmericaSings  431.9 #534 12:39AM
When we get in the DL we usually either get a Fast pass for Star Tours or Indiana Jones - go do our other rides we love and get back there in time. Single Rider on RSR in DCA - We usually do race each other. - Marciamcmouse  55.4 #4706 10:23PM
and yes, what MM says! single rider on the racers....weeeee - FrankenweenieVelinee  3518.6 #44 10:46PM
coffee!! yay! & yes please add me :) our latest date night thing to do when we get to the resort: order couple slices of Napolini pizza in DDm to go. We head straight into FFP Cafe, order up our bold SB roast (w/pumps of white mocha), grab a booth and dine it up :) Thanks so much! - FrankenweenieVelinee  3518.6 #44 10:45PM
Add me please. First secret, take a picture of the pole nearest your car in the parking structure so it is easy to find you car at the end of your visit. 2nd tip, 3rd gun from the right at the shooting gallery in frontierland is still shooting for free unlimited rounds but no sound. - Plumiegirl  10331.1 #9 11:10PM
My son loves the shooting gallery! Thanks! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 7:32AM
Enter me please. My tip is to grab a table at the River Belle Terrace for a great viewing area for Famtasmic. You don't need to be dining there to sit at the tables. We hold the table and someone in our group goes to get funnel cake and pretzels. Then when it's over we have a Birdseye view of the human freeway. - NascarDave  323.8 #817 11:22PM
Please add me, thank you! Here is my tip: usually when I'm on the hunt for a certain character, I go to City Hall to ask about the time and location of where a character could be found next. - rbeezy  703.0 #292 11:27PM
The mobile magic app works great for character times too. This is how I know when Peter Pan will be at the parks :D please add me I really don't have another tip other than this...but I'm learning so many things from this post :) - annjay07  170.8 #2459 11:48PM
Please add me... My must do is people watch. The scenery is always changing and my fav spot to people watch is New Orleans Sq. or in front of Star Trader - justcallmeKP  274.4 #1173 11:55PM
Add me please! My tip is go to Town Hall and get a list of the horses' names on King Arthur Carousel. It doesn't tell which horse goes with which name though, and we always have fun trying to put names with horses! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #826 12:58AM
Please add me! I love to look for hidden mickeys!!! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1320.9 #140 7:51AM
Great tips. Mine tip/favorite thing to do is early entry then hit the mint julep bar when they open for hot coffee and a bag of beignets. We go in the fall usually and it's cool, calm, and quiet. Also, you can hear haunted sounds. Creepy cool. - EastBaytoLA  1145.8 #166 7:58AM
This is so awesome! My Disney tip/trick is if you see a MWer in the parks just walk up and introduce yourself and be polite! You will end up meeting some awesome people! 😁 It's worked for me every time πŸ˜‰ - minnieMisty  276.9 #1136 8:01AM
Weekend bump - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 11:52AM
Add me please! My tip is to bring packets of instant coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Ask for a cup of hot water which is FREE and tada you have a nice hot drink for practically nothing! Much better than paying almost $5 bucks for coffee! Also this is a great idea I love getting all these tips! - dolewhipkarlita  94.6 #3757 11:01PM
Courtesy bump! - LilKsMomma  87.0 #3891 11:25PM
Please add me. My favorite tip/must do would be to head into the Animation Academy whenever it gets too hot or we just need a break. Nice and air conditioned and the drawing classes are always a fun free souvenir. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #350 11:45PM
Add me please! My tip I love to do with my kids is to ask the train engineer to sit up behind him around the perimeter of the park. They love it! I also have to always get a pickle and pineapple while I ride on the Jungle Cruise. - kueenofhearts  282.2 #1086 11:55PM
How generous! Add me please. My secret is one I have tried but never succeeded at πŸ˜’ I heard if you are at the gates in the very front before opening that a cm will sometimes pic a person/group to "open" the park. They take you just inside the gates and you get to scream "let the magic begin!!!" We always head straight for Fantasyland at rope drop because that land gets busy quick and stays busy! If you go there first you can usually ride everything with minimal wait times. - Princessnicci  28.7 #6359 11:57PM
Last day bump. β˜• - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 10:18AM
Ok add me please and thank you! I like to use the restrooms near Rancho or Hungry Bear. It seems like they are usually much less crowded since they are not in major pathways. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #550 10:28AM
please add me,,, my tip is, any restaurant or food stand will give out ice water. That way I don't get stuck carrying around water bottles all day. - sallyzero13  304.1 #931 12:31PM
Please add me! My must do is to start my trip on Astro Blasters with my son. Thank you for the RAK! - Momof3crazyboys  165.2 #2552 9:29PM
Add me please! Recently became a coffee addict. Best secret I know is the Dole whip line on the inside of the Tiki Room outdoor area is ALWAYS faster. Last time I didn't want to wait in a 30 minute line after the fireworks for an icecream, but I saw an empty line on the inside and tried it out and it was EMPTY. Very helpful for me. Thanks! - BrerRabbit  360.8 #669 9:34PM
Bump for the winner! - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 2:46PM
Congrats!!!! - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #671 2:58PM
I'm going to pick a new winner tomorrow morning (Thursday)if I don't hear from EastBaytoLA tonight. - CallMeFlower  424.0 #546 4:18PM

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 June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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 #330 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7485 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #519 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  176.9 #2350 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1031 5:04PM

Go ahead and update it as admin needs them posted as current time as possible. You can have ten people with you inputting times themselves and it still helps the app!
