Ok, this has to be one of the best Disneyland Historical videos I have ever seen from the opening year 1955. Th quality of this video is unreal and is a home movie taken and is in color. There are some unreal shots of Main Street, the Castle and lots of intrestings suprises you will see that I had to eevn pause and reewind back and make sure I wasnt seeing things. Another very intresting aspet of this video is you can see that a lot of the park was still under construction while the park was open. You see the storybook canals but no flowers, Casey Jr pretty much on wodden raisers fully exposed, and workers painting the Pirate ship in Fantasyland...Also the vieo features somthing that was not very well documented which was the phantom boats in Tomorrolwand! hope you enjoy this as much as I did

Sounds amazing! Let me grab some popcorn and get to it 😝 - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #155 10:28AM
Ah, this was awesome! Thanks Dave! Also, really interesting/ironic with the intro and choice of music. Made me feel... Hopeful to see all the images. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #155 10:36AM
This video is awesome, I saw this on MSN yesterday. Did you see the great video on EPCOT today (or what EPCOT should have been)? - NickDoubleyew  1094.0 #173 10:30AM
I saw that one also, I love all things Epcot so I enjoyed watching it The coolest thing was that it had the attraction that never happened in it. The Living seas pavilon was supposed to have this attraction that was that went through a posiden adventure..it was scrapped and never built - Dave   13763.7 #4 12:32PM
It's sad to know what could have been. I could have been riding a dolphin under water. - NickDoubleyew  1094.0 #173 1:13PM
This video is amazing! I love how Main Street still looks the same. When my dad was young he went to Disneyland around that time. It's great to compare what he saw as a child to what we see today. - DizPrincess_Sam  315.3 #849 10:40AM

SAA, do you mind telling me how much it was? We are in the process of trying to go through my grandparents 8MM footage for the documentary we're doing and I'm trying to see if it's cost effective to get them transferred over. :) - MissMolly  1355.3 #134 1:00PM

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 April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. 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 Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM

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  0.0 #127125 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  5640.4 #23 8:10PM
