bhahahahahaha! Hubbys complain the most sometimes. - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 3:27PM
Yeah, but I can handle him. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4244.1 #37 3:38PM
And I remind him how lucky he is to have me! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4244.1 #37 3:38PM
LOVE it!! Lucky, indeed!! - misschurro...  7448.4 #12 3:46PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3403.5 #45 3:46PM
I leave my hubby at home a lot because of his complaining lol! - DSNYCheeks3  866.1 #223 5:09PM
πŸ‘†All of the above! Mine can't handle more than 5 hrs. He was such a trooper on the 4th cuz he wanted to see fireworks so bad lol. - missariel33  2115.6 #77 6:45PM
That's why my husband doesn't have an ap or is allowed to go to disneyland with me. - maxinerenton  422.7 #549 2:14AM
He IS lucky Meridafan! I leave mine at work most trips. He's the reason we get to enjoy the parks though, so I guess I'll keep him. 😜 But he has about a 6 hour max at DL. - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 8:32AM
Keep in mind the age of your kiddos...for the minis to toddler age, make sure you keep them hydrated and try doing indoor AC attratctions that allow them the opportunity to chill out and relax...be mindful of their reactions to weather...for the older set, it might be that they may not have done something they want to do...have a short talk of major things the kids in your group would like to do and make it a point to get to it during your trip...you know your kids best and be mindful of who they are and how they react to particular factors :-) - uscdisneyteacher  8483.2 #10 3:35PM
^ this!! - Bo22  394.4 #591 4:11PM
Same thing I do outside the park. - Mrs.mouse  543.6 #401 3:17PM
which is? :) - PinkTink88  25.1 #6760 3:17PM
On our last visit my youngest son (11) decided that the gravity in DL was stronger than DCA, because he feet hurt so bad in DL 😳 So instead if listening to reason "no, your feet hurt more in DL because we have been walking in DCA all day, and now we are in DL and your feet hurt". And as serious as he can be he says "no mom, it's not that way😑...I need an electric scooter to get back to the hotel" LOL!!! Gotta love the complainers 😊 - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1475.6 #121 3:31PM
That's REALLY funny πŸ˜‚ gotta love kid logic! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.3 #339 3:33PM
Hahaha. Gotta love his logic! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4244.1 #37 3:39PM
This cracked me up LOL - missmimi90  2034.1 #85 4:13PM
Kid logic is the best! Priceless moment! Lol - lohofosho  785.0 #249 4:15PM
So true! I love 11.πŸ˜‚ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2046.4 #83 6:32PM
He's so funny! On that same trip when we were walking from the Grand to Paradise Pier he says "I'm so tired! Can I take one of these taxis across the street to our hotel?" I kid you not, he was dead serious 😜 We leave tomorrow for 4 days at the parks...I'm mentally preparing myself for the moment when he starts in and I tell him that I'm going to push him in a stroller πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1475.6 #121 10:58PM
It always makes me sad to see parents snapping at their kids for whining at Disney. I get how annoying whining is, trust me! but Disney is loud, hot and overstimulating and kids simply don't have the tools like adults to realize when they are overwhelmed. - tiggertwin  332.9 #764 6:25PM
I agree, you said it beautifully, thanks. - CabanaQueen  7.7 #13715 6:41PM
I work in behavior management and I see this type of thing on a daily basis. But its an easy skill to teach and to learn :) - tiggertwin  332.9 #764 6:44PM
I tell him I don't want to hear it. A lot of kids out there don't get to visit as often as he does and he needs to start being grateful. Also, if he keeps it up I won't buy him a thing. Or allow him to by himself anything as well. - Lelundrial  729.7 #280 3:24PM
I have the same approach. Lol. "No chimichanga for you little man!" Works all the time. - iheartDLR18  8.7 #12499 3:31PM
It's usually dehydration, coupled with lack of sleep and hunger. My husband usually tells me to sit down and have some water while he gets me a little snack with protein and some coffee. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.3 #339 3:29PM
ahahaha - vincentchase1  672.9 #315 3:38PM
leave them in the car. - vincentchase1  672.9 #315 3:43PM
Spoken like a true parentπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro...  7448.4 #12 3:48PM
Just crack the window. They'll be fine. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.3 #339 6:54PM
I can't understand my kids complaining while at Disneyland. We fly 14 hours to get them there and they complain?!?!?!?!?!? You're at Disneyland Kid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol If one of ours is miserable, one of us parents walk them outside the park and sit outside the gates until their attitued improves. There is no bad attitudes allowed in Disney land lol - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  538.1 #408 4:43PM
We brought our cousins from Melbourne a few years ago (they were 3 and 5 at the time). They were so whiny! To be fair, it was June: hot, crowded, and they were jet lagged. We thought the trip was a huge failure, but their mom says they're always talking about their wonderful time at DL! Too funny what kids end up remembering. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.3 #339 6:58PM
Take them to Soak City with the green water and crappy diapers. - vincentchase1  672.9 #315 3:20PM
ROFLOL - DeadliestPassholder  356.3 #683 3:23PM
Dude...yuck - missariel33  2115.6 #77 6:46PM
Tell tell them we are leaving. Complaining stops instantly!! - RCmom  5235.3 #25 3:24PM
First acknowledge their feelings then if it's fitting, maybe take a sitting down break and get something to drink in a cool area, slow down or shift what's going on. - Westcoast  174.9 #2380 3:39PM
...or pull something shiny out of your purse. - Westcoast  174.9 #2380 4:28PM
It is usually tired or hunger. Try giving them a snack. If that doesn't help try a nap in quiet place like Innoventions. If a lot of long lines that makes anyone cranky. Set your pace and expectations based in them and not you. If you have an AP an live close you should leave. We got as far as parking once. Turned around and left before the tram. He learned we meant business. - DLKenCA  2859.4 #50 3:39PM
Mine is 9 and that isn't why he is complaining. - Lelundrial  729.7 #280 5:05PM
I flat out tell them( boys 7&11) that they are in the parks for me. If we have to leave, I am going to be very cranky. πŸ˜ˆπŸ‘Ώ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2046.4 #83 4:25PM
"Don't make mommy cranky!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro...  7448.4 #12 4:27PM
It's trueπŸ˜‚I am very blessed to have passes and be in such close proximity to the parks. Sadly, my kids take this privilege for granted. Of course 80% of the time is spent doing what they want to do. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2046.4 #83 4:46PM
I agree with Mrs. Mouse! Consistency wins. - TangledsDad  261.9 #1290 3:18PM
I turn them and let them do what they want... Course they are 19 and 13. - LeftyLightning  456.0 #504 3:27PM
Bubble Machine. Splash in some Water. Videogames :-) - joxua  104.3 #3597 3:28PM
We have been taking our children every year since they were 18 months old. We always hit the park first thing in the morning and do Fantasyland rides over and over. They love it. Then we break for a snack and do more rides then we head back to hotel for a nap and a swim. Then go back for the evening. It works for us. - CabanaQueen  7.7 #13715 3:37PM
Since we usually stay on property, we head back to the room or go to the pool if the complaints are about lines, then go back at night. - BombFrogFormerCM  1058.9 #182 3:44PM
Yes one of the benefits of staying at the one Disney Resort hotels. Also, dropping them off at Pinocchio's Workshop if they are 5-12. Don't try to stay all day. Get a break! - Midasgold  633.3 #337 4:12PM
We've never done the workshop as our son (age 7) is living with high functioning autism but its nice to observe him and his sister (age5) watch the vintage cartoons in the Grand's lobby. - BombFrogFormerCM  1058.9 #182 5:51PM
I have a few old complainers. - Butterlina  1588.4 #114 3:46PM
My step son knows not to complain or he suffers my wrath. So... Yeah I don't have a ton of advice since threats seem to work (and keeping him hydrated) lol - missmimi90  2034.1 #85 4:17PM
What do we do about complaining MW'ers? - ShariRenee  10364.8 #8 4:20PM
Put them in the rock of shame - missmimi90  2034.1 #85 4:27PM
Destroy them. If we're in a good mood ;) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MissMolly  1386.7 #134 4:28PM
Flag, flag, flag! Report, report, report!!!! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3403.5 #45 4:30PM
No missmimi!!! The rock of shame is too good for them! LOL Disney jail! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3403.5 #45 4:31PM
LOL MrsSchnooks! They need a Disney jail for unruly children too - missmimi90  2034.1 #85 4:34PM
Maybe put them on IASW for an hour and then ban them from The Cove! - ShariRenee  10364.8 #8 4:48PM
Ok, ShariRenee is onto something here but I love IASW so I definately keeping the ban them from the Cove however... they have to watch all the fun from outside being handcuffed to Duffy!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3403.5 #45 5:05PM
^^With Merdiafan - Lelundrial  729.7 #280 5:06PM
Great idea MrsSchnooks! - ShariRenee  10364.8 #8 5:14PM
I've been taking my 4 year old since she was 18 months. Breaks, rides that are tailored to her, hydration and sometimes just flat out leaving. That's the beauty of an annual pass. - FIGJAMinWonderland  20.5 #7507 5:24PM
My kids whine and complain about something no matter what we do. I just tune them out and trudge on, and they soon forget--until the next complaint. When they get to full meltdown mode we know they are tired/overwhelmed and ready for a break and/or meal. - Diz_Mel  96.0 #3734 6:32PM
Disney dollar bribery. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #159 12:21AM
I find I am the biggest whiner, but that was because I wanted to spend all our time at the park WITH the kids. As they got older, they didn't want to stick with old man and mom. I just kept the cash so we would at least have meals. - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #569 12:32AM
Don't take their ungrateful butts next time. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #550 12:42AM
I keep reminding my son that I don't have to bring him with me. - Lelundrial  729.7 #280 7:31AM
I send the hubby to the ESPN Zone :) - disnut  27.7 #6473 8:25AM
As soon as they mention that their feet hurt and their tired, I say "ok, time to go home then" all of a sudden their feet stop hurting and their not tired enough to go on rides. I'm a mean Aunt cuz I would really take them home buahahahaha THERE'S NO COMPLAINING AT DISNEYLAND!!! - mini_MINNIE  1165.8 #162 8:56AM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  64.2 #4429 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  6912.0 #17 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2765.5 #54 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  771.6 #257 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  245.1 #1463 6:54PM

I think one of you were just ahead of me today.  Most of the rides had the right wait time posted so they didnt need updating. - sallen848  186.9 #2220 10:51PM
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! (As long as all are on their own account I should clarify)😍 thanks for doing wait times, it helps us all!! - secretagentangel  6912.0 #17 1:19PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge. 

This is an  app. Thank you @@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  300.0 #0 2:46PM

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  176.8 #2352 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1031 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #75914 12:12PM
